Video: Agile Technologies with Lives at Stake

This was a change of pace, but a very interesting video on InSTEDD (Innovative Support to Emergencies Diseases Disasters) and their use of technologies (geolocation, text messages) in support of disaster response (e.g. Haiti). Some enlightening stories about usability and the issues they encounter in the field. Agile is talked about, but the focus of the presentation is on the real world issues working with technology in disaster relief and disease reporting.
