Stuff we linked to on Twitter last week

DonorsChoose Update

Earth Science Week has been a good week for bringing earth science to school kids. The Highly Allochthonous drive has raised $657 so far from 9 donors and touched the lives of 421 students. Thanks to all who have given and spread the word.

But there’s no time to rest on our laurels, because there are many many more projects out there in desperate need of our help. Today is the very last day to help South Carolina elementary school kids turn into Weather Detectives. They need another $261 to be given by the end of the day. Can you help them reach their goal? (Note: If you give money to a project and it does not end up being completely funded, you’ll be allowed to reallocate your donation to another project of your choice.)

If none of the projects on our challenge page strike your fancy, or you want to share the love even further, please look at the projects that geoblogger and tweeter Maitri Erwin is supporting through her giving page. There are also some great projects on “The Rocks Know” giving page, but I’m not sure which blogger deserves the shout-out for setting up a challenge. If it’s you, please let me know. Of course, if you are all wet, you can support our ocean blogging colleagues through Ocean Bloggers United for Education or The Gam Classroom Initiative.

And now on to the linky goodness…

    For any who are interested, my Oct 20 lecture on the M 7.1 South Island, NZ earthquake is available for viewing at

    This represents the current stage of my thinking on this event.

    Kind regards,
