    Guys at Geocaching.com enlisted geocachers to look for balloons while out hunting for geocaches. They found 4 balloons to this moment and keep searching for remaining ones. If geocachers succeed, Geocaching.com will donate additional $10.000 (total of $50.000) to humanitarian cause.

    It is interesting to observe how Grounspeak guys use geocaching website and it's resources to confirm balloon sightings.

    Final team standings for Darpa. Looks like MIT was the only group to find all 10 balloons.
