SEA-EAT Blog Mobilizes Fast For Tsunami Relief

Three bloggers in Bombay set up tsunamihelp.blogspot.com soon after the tsunami hit on Sunday, to form a clearinghouse for disaster relief. Three days later, the blog has 50 contributors and
A blog with an ungainly name—The South-East Asia Earthquake and Tsunami, or SEA-EAT—has emerged as the latest example of netizens' ability to form fast volunteer organizations.

The blog was started by Peter Griffin, a writer and blogger located in Bombay, India, soon after the tsunamis hit on Sunday.

"Peter though it up," said Rohit Gupta, one of three bloggers in Bombay running SEA-EAT. "His idea was that there has to be a clearinghouse of aid and information for the tsunami victims. There was no such resources at this time."
