I'm waiting for the release of Quakebook, the story of the Japanese Earthquake and its aftermath. This book is going to be out any time soon, probably within a day or two. It is a Twitter-sourced charity book about how the earthquake at 2:46pm on 11 Mar 2011 is affecting all of us. The 2:46 Quakebook project started with a tweet and is on the verge of becoming something significant. We can all play our part to buy this book and help all those hit by the event.
Led by OurManInAbiko, a call went out across the Twitter world for contributors to create a book to raise funds for the Red Cross Japan. The idea was to share the stories and experiences of people actually on the ground during the earthquake, whilst raising funds for the Red Cross.This concerted effort will be the end result of all that collaboration.
