Microsoft activated its disaster response protocol to monitor the situation in Japan and other areas on tsunami warning alert, and offer support as appropriate.  See the full article at Community Involvement: Disaster Response – Corporate Citizenship.

Also, if you have a Twitter account, you can help support Japan. Just Retweet: http://twitter.com/#!/bing/status/46597693585358848 and Bing will donate $1 up to $100K.

It appears some people got the wrong impression of Bing's offer, Bing Tweet:

We apologize the tweet was negatively perceived. Intent was to provide an easy way for people to help Japan. We have donated $100K.

If you haven't seen these images yet, definitely check them out. They are horrifically amazing. Horrific because of the obvious devastation. Amazing because of what technology can show us.
