15 Million Data Points and Democracy Now

Today we broke another data milestone when we crossed 15 million data points in the Safecast database. You may recall that it was only June 2013 when we broke 10 Million and October 2011 when first hit 1 million so momentum is picking up thanks in no small part to many proud new bGeigie Nano owners. Today we added our first data from Australia.

Also, Amy Goodman and Democracy Now went to Tokyo and caught up with Pieter Franken for this piece on Safecast which aired today.
