It kind of reminds me of the days back when I blogged about Doing a little more in Sri Lanka....

Back in the beginning of 2005. After all of the problems in Sri Lanka and an urgent need that people had for help.

Sure lots of money was given, by many people. Many people from Microsoft, in fact.

But there was also some assistance that was of help in a more technological sense, as I mentioned back then.

Well now it is 2010, and another natural disaster has taken place. In Haiti.

Again, the money has been flowing out there, to help with many of the different relief efforts.

Plus one additional effort, discussed in Announcement: Haitian Creole support in Bing Translator and other Microsoft Translator powered services (see also the info about the bot that can speak the lingo in Haiti, as well -- a huge boon in a country like Haiti that has ~55% illiteracy in the country)....
