Tuesday Push – Decisions For Heroes (D4H)

conor 19th of May 2009 by conor

I’ve been reading a lot of Umair Haque recently and with every article, I immediately think of Decisions For Heroes, just launched by Robin Blandford.


D4H is a site/system/service for Rescue Teams. Its aim to is help those who risk their lives carrying out rescues by providing tools and information to do their job better.

As the Zombieconomy collapses around us, it will be valuable, useful and powerful tools that come from ideals which will power the recovery.

Go check out the D4H site and take part in the Tuesday Push to get the word out about this utterly inspirational service that embodies Constructive Capitalism.

Decisions for Heroes a finalist in SeedCamp

Many of us were absolutely gutted when the SeedCamp finalists were announced and there was no sign of Decisions for Heroes (D4H). Anyone who has been following what Robin Blandford has been doing with D4H knows what an amazing idea it is.

According to 11850 It is a collaborative rescue team management tool to record and analyze rescue operations.

It looks like the judges re-considered their decision. Perhaps they realised that the ideas around D4H can be re-used to build many highly valuable logistics-centered systems where the value is in the data.

In any case, that means we now now have an Irish entry in SeedCamp. Well done Robin! Hopefully we’ll have even more Irish finalists next year.

Given the energy and activity around incubation programmes like Genesis and EnterpriseStart, is it time to consider doing a SeedCamp-style programme here specifically for webapps?
