Since this week marks the one year anniversary of the Haiti Earthquake, there are many reports and articles being released. My colleague Kim Stephens has highlighted five reports in her blog posting today on iDisaster 2.0

I would like to highlight one of those reports, the one issued by the Knight Foundation titled Media, Information Systems and Communities: Lessons from Haiti. This 27 page report is well-written and very insightful.  Although it focuses primarily on the response phase, it does raise the question about how could the experience and lessons gained during the response also serve the national reconstruction as well as relief efforts in future crises.
