Going to Sri Lanka

Eventually, our website work was renamed as Internet Resource Centers by Mano Philips and we issued a media release about it. The task that we had take on was expansive and our resources were meager. We did not plan as to how to get it done but we just worked hard at it.

We also realized that we needed to help get funds to the people who were helping. So initially we had a focus on the relief efforts and we directed traffic to groups that were already set up.

On the 29th, I decided to go to Sri Lanka and so I booked a flight out on January 2nd. The objectives were to do what I could with relief, to identify groups that were actually undertaking work, and then also to set up offices to help with disseminating information from the Internet to the relief operations and getting information from the relief workers to the websites.
