Mount Diablo Beacon looks like an ideal location for a network of drone cameras outside of the Santa Clara County. They are accepting funding for restoration. Maybe we could use kickstarter.com to promote the Drone Team iphone Apps and a webcam network for public internet access using Mount Diablo Beacon.

Funding raised to date (6/10/13): $23,945

The Dean and Margaret Lesher Foundation - all donations to the Beacon Restoration Fund up to $50,000 will be matched doubling your impact to restore the historic Eye of Diablo.

"The Cube" on top of Mount Umunhum. The name is the sound of a humming bird.  The description of the word humming bird seems to evoke the impression of the hum and subsonic vibration of the Chad and Raj drone encounter.

Quote
Mount Umunhum (Ohlone, meaning resting place of the hummingbird)[3] is the fourth-highest peak in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California (after Loma Prieta, Crystal Peak, and Mt. Chual). The mountain is situated in Santa Clara County, southeast of Los Gatos and south of South San Jose. The peak can be recognized in Santa Clara Valley by the five-story concrete radar tower building, known locally as "the cube"[4] or "the box", that sits atop the summit.

We can get many engineers interested in the Drone Cam projects for the Raspberry Pi Camera Board (1080p HD) using open source face recognition technology to recognize the Ty, Chad and Raj drones.
