I am a nerd and while going through my news updates today I came across an interesting article on noise pollution and how a new application called NoiseTube was being used to track it. The app works with either iOS or Android devices. I downloaded the Android version and will start monitoring noise around Pucallpa and report back. So, do your part! Download this and help track the noise in your neighborhood, be it in Peru or elsewhere in the world.
Why bother? The noise here is one of the few things that really bothers me and is out of my control. Now I have a tremendously useful tool to measure it. Interested, check out the article on mashable.

“We live in very, very loud world. With cars whizzing past, construction sites pounding away, ambulances roaring around and the dull ache of idle chatter constantly bombarding the sound wall, it’s easy to get overwhelmed in a noisy environment. And there’s good reason for that: Although it’s usually pushed into the background, noise is actually a form of pollution.”
