Pigeons write a smog blog

An interesting article in Plenty magazine just burbled up through the diggosphere (if you'll pardon that neologism) about an upcoming blog updated with real-time air-pollution data, transmitted by pigeons.

Each pigeon will be equipped with a tiny backpack loaded with devices that will measure pollution data and transmit the information to the web, creating a real-time air pollution index.
The PigeonBlog is under construction until August 1, at which point you'll be able to view it here.
