Perhaps world events have provided many people with time to turn their attention to other things, such as the Hum. Over the past month, I have received hundreds of emails from around the world. Some people want answers, some want help, and some are simply telling me what they are experiencing.
I am sorry that I cannot respond to most of you. My teaching colleagues and I are facing a massive shift in the way we approach our work and I have been tasked with helping bring them up to speed on technology tools such as Moodle, Google Classroom, and Zoom that will help us make that transition. I feel very grateful that I am still earning a paycheck during the COVID-19 pandemic while many people in this community and in Canada are not.
So to those of you who wrote to me, could I get you to read the following, in this order:
- This article, which is currently the only major media piece written in my own words: https://theconversation.com/cracking-the-mystery-of-the-worldwide-hum-60296
- These two excellent guides from Henrik (resident scientist)
- My blog, which has commentary from scientists and non-scientists alike: https://hummap.wordpress.com/
- And, of course, be sure to examine the World Hum Map: http://thehum.info/newhummap/html_docs/
When the world and my professional life have both settled down, I should be in a better position to connect with people individually.
Until then, stay safe and healthy.
All the best.
