Well, this is just beyond cool. Google has just announced their new Seaview project, which aims to be the Google Street View of the ocean. We obviously believe there's huge potential there.
I still believe the true heart of effective citizen science requires low-cost, DIY tools. Maybe there's a way to bring the two together, amateur Astronomy has done it beautifully with Dobsonian telescopes + Zooniverse.
What do you think, both of the project and the citizen science potential?
