The Blu, a new interactive ocean-focused website recently went live and is offering invitations to access the site in its beta form. As the website states The Blu’s mission is “to create the ocean on the web as a globally shared media experience. It is a beautiful interactive online world where every species and habitat is a unique work of art created by digital artists and developers around the world. The Blu is a geosocial web application where people connect across the Internet and explore a vast ocean on the web.” To learn more about The Blu and request an invite for the site, go here.
Additionally, Dr. Sylvia Earle, who spoke during NEOSEC’s 2010 Ocean Literacy Summit events, recently joined the Board of Advisors at The Blu. Dr. Earle is an oceanographer and a National Geographic Explorer in-residence. To read more about her work click here.
