How to monitor the gas industry online

As part of our story about landmen in the Marcellus Shale, we spoke with Chris Csikszentmihályi, who co-created the “Landman Report Card” project.

But Csikszentmihályi didn’t just create one website to help track fracking – he created three.

  • LandmanReportCard.com, where homeowners can give landmen letter grades
  • NewsPositioning.com, where people can track news reports about oil and gas
  • Wellwatch.org, where property owners can record all the drilling activity going on in their neighborhood, on a well-by-well basis

Together those sites comprise the MIT Media Lab’s “extrACT projects,” and they’ve taught Csikszentmihályi valuable lessons about natural gas and web 2.0.
