Call for volunteers: become a citizen seismologist!

With all the recent earthquake activity, it is becoming increasingly important to monitor seismic activity to see how (if?) earthquakes can be predicted. There is a grassroots network of amateur volunteers who are using a PC, a Nintendo Wii Nunchuck, or a Raspberry Pi on the Quake Catcher Network to gather wide area knowledge of seismic activity.  See this webpage for more details of how you can join - and even see the network results for previous quakes like the recent Berkeley CA and the massive 2010 Christchurch NZ quake.
