## Crowdsourced Monitoring, DIY Neurobio, A Plethora of Memory Stick Computers

1. Crowdsourcing Radiation Data in Japan (Freaklabs) — wardriving pollution detection.
2. Backyard Brains — measuring electrical activity of a neuron in a cockroach leg. Astonishing how much science is within the reach of backyard hackers now. (via BoingBoing)
3. Cotton Candy Stick Pre-Orders — a $200 Android computer on a USB stick, with HDMI out etc. 4. Raspberry Pi Launches —$35 USB+CPU+video+audio ships. Interesting that both of these have come to fruition at the same time. Something is in the air. How will the world change when every memory stick is a computer, not just every phone?
