This article is posted on Gizmodo, written by Ria Misra, but it’s getting pretty low views and no constructive comments at all (except mine). It has yet to be shared to IO9. I’m linking it here because I think it deserves some attention from people who love science. I posted Ria’s story to a Facebook group hosted by the University of Washington’s Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, and its director, John Vidale, replied with a post to another article where he was interviewed about the new app. The app is, indeed, promising, but not quite ready for prime time yet. Still, this is very exciting stuff.
I really, really wish the science writers for “IOModo” posted to IO9 as their primary site, and then linked over to Gizmodo, because otherwise, interesting pieces like this are getting buried.
