The recent events in Haiti got me interested in volunteering, and I as a professional computer guy I was hoping to volunteer in my own field - but opportunities seem to be slim. Does anyone know of any organizations that are looking for computer people to volunteer their time and knowledge?

It may be worth contacting some of the charities, as they may be able to point you in the right direction. BTW, this really should be a wiki. –  John Gardeniers Jan 29 '10 at 1:17

GeekCorps ( http://www.geekcorps.org/ ) is the only one I'm aware of.

Also, this was a Slashdot question a while back -- http://ask.slashdot.org/story/10/01/20/206249/How-Do-You-Volunteer-Professional-Services

Note that as many in the Slashdot article pointed out a computer/IT gig is likely to require a long-term commitment to a project.

I don't know if this counts, but it's the only one I know which is related, UNV Online Volunteering Service. Most of them are not really about server stuff.
