Safecast: The Power of Citizen Science

Safecast is grateful to have been a Japan Society Japan Earthquake Relief Fund grantee, with funding that helped us set up Pointcast fixed sensors in Fukushima. On Monday, May 1, we will be in New York to give a lecture at the Japan Society as part of their Innovators Network series. Pieter Franken will be the speaker, and Joe Moross and Azby Brown will also attend. We expect it will be freewheeling, entertaining, and informative, as usual, and hope to see many of you there.
