Well there isn't anything to this post except for me pointing out a cool widget I found.
It shows a world map that updates where seismic events occur. It is more or less in real time, which is to say they update the database fairly regularly. So you can't watch earthquakes popping up all over the world, but it will load the most recent data when you start the widget.
I mention it because the only place it would properly fit was at the very bottom of the page. Not convenient to look at down there, but I like it anyway.
