Global imagery company Digital Globe have activated their crowdsource platform Tomnod to enlist the help of the world to help find lost Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Within the first hour Monday afternoon, the Tomnod map had 60,000 page views with more than a thousand tags. Ten minutes later that was up to nearly 2,000.

The combination of epic meaning, the crowd and technology is a very powerful thing. Lets hope some good can come of it.
