SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Help Each Other Out launches Indiegogo campaign to build its capacity through a free online Gesture Library and a Portrait Bombing Campaign featuring young women living with breast cancer and the gestures that helped get them through treatment.
The phone rings and it's your friend. She's calling to say something terrible has happened -- like she's getting a divorce or she's lost a parent -- and she's coming to you for support. What do you say? Frankly, most of us are clueless in these situations, and tend to either minimize what's happened or turn the conversation back to their own experience. Neither of which is what your friend needs in that moment.
Help Each Other Out developed out of this gap. "We created the website and are doing the campaigns because there's is a real need. I see it in my peer group -- as we're aging, we're getting sick, losing parents, divorcing", said founder Kelsey Crowe, 45, who was treated for breast cancer in 2012. "I don't think many of us know what to do in these situations. What the research shows is that often small gestures mean a lot, it doesn't take much. Being there, saying 'I'm sorry,' that can mean a great deal. We want to share what works, and create a kind of movement built on these small gestures."

Gesture Library: The campaign will fund an online gesture library on helpeachotherout.com. The library will be a free resource for people to share and learn from others what works for others when life gets hard, then worse.
Portrait Campaign: With the funds raised through Indiegogo, Help Each Other Out will launch its first Portrait Bombing Project in partnership with Bay Area Young Survivors of Breast Cancer (BAYS: www.baysnet.org) and iconic tintype photographer Michael Shindler (www.michaelshindler.com). Striking large-format tintype portraits will be will be displayed throughout several San Francisco neighborhoods. The portraits feature women from BAYS and include stories about the gestures that helped get them through treatment.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...
