LA Fire Dept. Featured in Wired Magazine
Turn to page 56 in the just-released issue of Wired Magazine (Nov., 2008) and you'll see kind face (usually smiling if you meet him in person) of Brian Humphrey at the Los Angeles Fire Department. The one-page blurb talks about the department's tech initiatives such as the much talked about LAFD Twitter, but also some technologies Humphrey is currently working on. For example, at some point, you may be able to type in your home address and get a text alert when it's on fire (eek!). LAist interviewed Humphrey last year about the use of social networking and emergencies. ALSO: Both USA Today and Daily News penned articles about the LAFD's widgets.
