I'm not hearing much (out here in California), but the few
points I know of are being tracked on:

Currently (2:58am PST, Sept 15) we have:

-------begin snip---------------

     Another Resource/Assistance Coordination page (Telehouse Europe based) 
     Wall Street Technology Association coordination page 
     NANOG Archives, many offers to assist in NYC and elsewhere 


According to which is the NY state emergency 
management center, the number to volunteer your time for
the cause is 800-801-8092. They'll put you in a database with 
your name and phone number and expertise, which is available to the
command posts. They particularly want firemen and medical people, 
but they seem receptive to everything.

Please email us anything that you come up with that isn't listed
above.  We are working with other resource listers to share info.
Thanks much!
