Occupy Sandy Hacks Amazon’s Wedding Registry (in a Good Way)
Occupy Sandy isn’t getting married. But it would like a gift all the same. The volunteer group — an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street focused on helping victims of the storm — is using an especially clever hack of an existing system, Amazon.com’s gift registry service. Those displaced by the storm, the group realized, need blankets, flashlights, hygiene products. They need a bunch of things that are orderable — with that famous one-click efficiency — through Amazon.
