    What makes the Ushahidi.com platform so powerful is that it can integrate information sent by anyone connected by almost any means. Add to Ushahidi.com, the connectional intelligence of people like Patrick Meier, and we see how combining disparate individuals, groups and information can and does indeed save lives. Courage builds on courage. This way of combining and forging connections is becoming a go-to template for crisis management around the world.
