Cork Environmental Forum - a local NGO working to foster, promote and implement sustainable development in the Cork region - is wrestling with how to run a volunteer organisation where our lives are so busy it is hard to find time to do more. Does technology have a role to play in volunteer organisations of the future, and if so, how?

Geekcorp are volunteer technologists helping to implement technology in developing countries at a grass roots level. I particularly enjoyed this project How to make a BottleNet Antenna where ingenuity rather than money provides the solution to developing local wifi with locally available materials.
