Wrong way of thinking about it?

A lot of people are thinking about misinformation; and creating networks of people. As long as geeks are fairly well distributed, they will be posting this stuff on the internet because they will be so excited to see a balloon. Probably news organizations will report on it. Maybe all that needs to be done is to gather the data off the web in real-time. Then, if necessary, call somebody near the location and ask them to confirm.
