Is the Haiti earthquake no longer newsworthy?

Interesting that if you do a Google search for the AGU meeting and the Haiti earthquake, essentially nothing turns up. There was other news to come out of the AGU meeting, but I guess the Haiti story is just "old hat."

 Dave Petley's AGU blogosphere Landslide blog did report on the specifics of the session I outlined in my last post. One of the speakers, Brian Mcadoo, is a friend and colleague who worked with me on an archaeological geophysics project in Jamaica in 1999. We probably didn't realize at the time that where we were working in Mandeville was not far from the westernmost extention of the Enriquillo-Plaintain Gardens fault zone which was related to the generation of the Haiti quake.
