Crowd-sourced DIY radiation monitoring through Safecast.org

When last month's 9.0 earthquake and tsunami breached six Japanese nuclear reactors in Fukushima, releasing radiation into the atmosphere,  Marcelino Alvarez of Uncorked Studios was not soothed by the official reports that there was "nothing to worry about." He hit upon the idea of using "citizen scientists" to crowd-source radiation data. Within 72 hours he and David Ewald had  Rdtn.org,  now known as Safecast up and running, and within the first week there were over 150,000 visitors from 130 countries.

Simon Johnson on Megabanks: Too Big to Save (lecture)

It was an unusual moment at the 2011 Oscars. Charles Ferguson, director of the award-winning documentary "Inside Job," told the audience, "Forgive me, I must start by pointing out that three years after our horrific financial crisis caused by financial fraud, not a single financial executive has gone to jail, and that's wrong." There was some applause. Imagine if you or I drove away without paying for gas or stole a pizza. We’d be arrested. But if you commit a huge financial fraud you walk away with tons of money. The robber barons of the age are laughing as hapless citizens watch in dismay as they are taken to the cleaners. Are these the values U.S. politicians keep extolling and insist the world emulate?
