3 weeks after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, a volunteer network from around the world took shape with the goal of helping people measure radiation levels and collectively map hotspots throughout the country.

On this week’s podcast we feature a presentation by Joi Ito at Ars Electronica last fall, as he presented the Safecast project.[powerpress]
