Quake Catcher Network
Interesting piece in Nature (from a week or two ago - only just had alert of it via Zetoc). Quake Catcher Network is a scheme using the accelerometers in laptops to sense earthquakes, and then relay that information to Stanford University. The central server can then alert other people in the area, but the scheme is really to track quakes. The scheme itself has a homepage at http://qcn.stanford.edu/
