Dr Jesus just mentioned that Noisebridge has a (real-time?) feed of
data from NASA's GRB observation platforms including images, which
apparently aren't publically available (for technical rather than
policy reasons). Not merely is there a suggestion to do something
useful with that data in the way of making it more publically
available, but he says he also has handshake agreements with the
appropriate people to build an iphone app out of this that would embed
it into Google Sky (or equivalent) for amateur astronomer use. Just in
case anyone knows anyone who is particularly keen on coding such
things.
