Thanks for the info, David.
Do you know if any of the colleges and universities to the south and east of
Baton Rouge have any temporary web homes?

Does anyone know of anyone keeping track of ways to work with students,
teachers, researchers who have been displaced from the gulf?
Is anyone getting a database about displaced doctoral candidates who need to
replace months of data collection, students who need certain requirements to
graduate, junior faculty who have to rewrite their almost finished
manuscripts and so on?
Is anyone trying to get them together with university people who can help
them work out reasonable next steps?

So far the evidence from Yale and UC seems to say that those institutions
haven't yet recognized they might be the someones with the expertise to do
these sorts of things...
