Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!
We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.
Here's some useful links to get started.

Greetings I have taken the position of a Blog Moderator, and while a lot has happened so far this week to piqued my interest, one issue caught my attention right away and I felt it was a good theme to start out with.

Google's new Earth Engine, powered by NASA's landsat satellites, gives a time lapse view of (pretty much) every land surface on earth over the last 25 years. The view is amazing, and inspiring, and at times terrifying.
