The end is near! Magic, multibrainstorms, and Earth Day discoveries.

Lab Note #12
Apr 23, 2015

Dear World,

Hope you had a great Earth Day!


The End is Near! If you didn't get a chance to celebrate yesterday, perhaps you can celebrate helping us reach 83%! Thank you for your support! There is only 17% (less than $900) to go!

Please help me get there by sharing the project! Share it with your friends via facebook, twitter, emailing, word of mouth, etc. 55+ people have already backed this project. Let your friends know why!

Magically, experiment granted me an extra week to reach the goal! Amazing!


Multibrainstorms: Lend us your brains! Help us design the project by answering some of the questions listed on this google webform. We want your input!



Earth Day Discoveries! I discovered two awesome projects yesterday that I want to share. The first is this website: http://earth.nullschool.net/ (the first image in this labnote is from this link). It provides a visualization of global weather conditions, forecast by supercomputers, updated every three hours.

The second project is an citizen science smartphone app for identifying animals, plants, fungi, etc. Check it out! http://www.projectnoah.org/


It's world wide! With this app, you can simply submit a 'sighting' (picture) and other users will help you identify what it is! You could discover a new species! It is also a fun way to fine-tune your mycology/botany skills by helping others identify their 'sightings'. Enjoy!


If you missed the Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) but still have some questions, we can continue the conversation here: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/32tl4w/iama_...

Also, have you had a chance to listen to this? I was featured on NPR's station in Eugene, OR. http://klcc.org/post/osu-microbiologist-heads-sout...


Thank you for supporting this dream! Please help us get to the end by sharing the project with more people!
