    Hello, I am the founder of WikiPakistan–a “Pakistan Information Database” hosted by the same foundation that runs WikiPedia. I started a page about the Quake on WikiPakistan on Friday night (Califronia Time)as soon as I heard of the Quake. The page (and affiliated pages) is starting to become a good place to gather and look for information.

    Here’s the message I sent around Friday night:

    Original message from WikiPakistan Admin to community

    I set up a page on WikiPakistan, which can be used to gather information, provide links, etc.:

    http://pakistan.wikicities.com/wiki/Earthquake_10-05

    This is a good place to put information you receive, so there is a central place to go to.

    Suggestions/Requests for information:

    * Specific information about towns, cities, etc. and how much they have been affected.

    * Database of missing people and informatioin about people found.

    * First hand accounts of events, photographs (phone camera pix welcome)

    * Relief efforts, fundraising events planned, etc.

    Please add the information yourself, if you can. Otherwise, e-mail it to iFaqeer@gmail.com.

    Since this tragedy spans several countries, please feel free to add quake-related information, from India and Afghanistan (and beyond? China?).

    WikiPakistan is a relatively new Information Database about Pakistan, Pakistanis and the diaspora. The site is at http://pakistan.wikicities.com/ and background information can be seen at http://pakistan.wikicities.com/wiki/Pakistan:About . It is an open database that anyone can edit and is developed under a Free Document License. Contributors are encouraged to click on the “Create an account or log in” link in the top righthand corner of every page and create an account. You do not need to provide any personal information.
