    Are you aware of the San Jose Array that Art Frankel has been spear-heading
for the last couple of years? It is unprecedented in the view that it provides
of the actual propagation of ground motions -- and Art has done a brilliant job
of giving us this vision .
    However it lacks any significant contact with the people in whose homes
 we have installed the Web sensors of
ground motion (K2's) -- I don't believe they have even been informed of the
websites above. These people represent the tip of the iceberg of a constituency
of concerned and committed citizens and residents who would actively support
NEHRP goals and funding programs. They provide the USGS with a direct contact to
the people who are most connected with the data we are recording -- it is
essential to involve them as partners in the our earthquake monitoring programs.
