Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo may be tough competitors when it comes to
Internet software and services, but they are putting their differences aside to
build a developer community to tackle bigger picture problems like saving lives
in emergencies.

The companies have joined with NASA, the World Bank, and PR agency SecondMuse
to organize the first-ever Random Hacks of Kindness event, which was held at a
warehouse space-cum community center called Hacker Dojo this weekend. For two
days, coders worked on ways to use technology to help solve real-world problems,
such as how people can get information and find each other during disasters.
