O The Great Hanshin Earthquake Page

I develop WWW pages titled ``The Great Hanshin (Kobe) Earthquake -- Information Volunteers and Computer Networks --'' (which is a mirror version. the original version).* These pages are written in Japanese, but an English version will be available soon. These pages contain information on the Great Hanshin Earthquake, which occurred on January 17, 1995. The focuses of these pages are computer networks and the information volunteers, who helped the sufferers using computer networks (the original), and the information broadcasted from Kobe to the world or from the world on the earthquake using WWW (the original). The information in these pages are collected personally by the author. These pages also contain links to the materials on the earthquake, such as news archives (the original). I hope these pages are helpful for investigating possible future disasters and volunteer activities. To compile information on the earthquake is a kind of information volunteer.

The Great Hanshin (Kobe) Earthquake Page contains the source information used in the above pages. This page contains a link to Computer Networks and Volunteers Page, which contains information on the information volunteers in the area, and a link to Kanada's InterVnet Page. InterVnet is an infrastructure that connects volunteers among the Internet and many personal computer networks (BBSs).
