Nadine, I haden't realized the political potential of this technology. Just as Facebook helped foster the Arab Spring -- for better or worse -- this could help protesters organize in China and other countries.

I love the CreekWatch App.  If there had been cellphones when I was a kid, I would have been measuring our creek everyday.  Great app for future natural scientists.

I agree, Rob. It's a great app for news organizations. Maybe a source for DEsign News?

It's no surprise that this is starting in China.  From my experience there, I really wonder how the government will control the information.  While living in Shanghai, I remember that spills up-river weren't reported for days or even weeks, even though it effected the drinking water.

This App could let people know right away!

What a cool app, Cabe. News organizations have used this approach for years to gather information from people on the scene of disasters both natural and manmade. An app for the function is a great idea.
