Hi, I just joined, this looks very interesting. I'm not really your typical target audience, being based in the Nordics with distant field experience in a relatively comfortable place (Bosnia). I'm also a bit more on the early recover/TJ side than dealing with humanitarian crises in any direct and meaningful sense. That said, I run a blog on land and property issues in humanitarian and development settings (link below) and would be happy to help contribute to starting a group on this topic on AidSource. I'm also kind of an IT dinosaur so I haven't really figured out how to go about it on my own!

Your advice welcome!
