True Story: Bag of crap helped a wooter make it out of Haiti.
I wanted to make sure that people saw this if they don't get (or don't read) the Woot newsletter. Below is the Woot email text with the link to the full story:
Occasionally, a human interest event occurs that knocks us out of the day-to-day and grants us perspective from a higher level. We'd like to share a pretty remarkable first hand account of an IT industry editor's narrow escape from the earthquake and aftermath - in fact a fellow Wooter, named Bryan, who not only scored one of our infamous Woot "Bags of Crap", but managed to extract some slight value out of its mediocre contents.
Bryan has suggestions for donation on his page, and you'll also find some of our favorite links at the bottom of our blog post linked above. And, as always, we welcome thoughtful commentary on our posts.
