Simply a shameless plug about an Associated Press news article in which I am quoted discussing the benefits and what I consider to be the irresponsible marketing and use requirements of a new mobile iOS app called Leafsnap. Leafsnap is a new free citizen science app that was developed by Columbia University, the University of Maryland, and the Smithsonian Institution.
I expressed my initial thoughts and concerns about this app in much more detail on GreeneAdventures.com, the hiking and outdoors blog that my husband and I publish. On Monday, I was contacted by AP reporter Brett Zongker via Twitter to arrange a phone interview later that day, and the AP wire piece ran this morning.
