AP spanking the japanese media with a huge scoop using the japanese equivalent of the FOIA, They revealed NISA had a single page tsunami preparedness document from TEPCO that was over a decade old, never updated, and never verified. This pretty much shows the major domestic japanese media outlets are in bed with the government and TEPCO.

Uh, so Microsoft appears to be planning to release a power control app in Japan for Windows to cut power usage by a third. No mention of when this is coming (I assume before the summer blackouts hit...)(rumor is after Golden Week)

Namazu Alert - Android Market
Apparently a push notification app for japanese earthquakes, but is reported to interfere with phone sleep because of a persistent data connection, draining your battery (well, unless you recharge your phone at night)

NERV極秘資料 - 電力使用状況
While making an anime in-joke, some dude has whipped up a meter style readout from TEPCO CSV data regarding available and current power (XML updates every 5 minutes apparently)(TEPCO data reports in units of 10000KW due to japanese number conventions, so that screws other mashups numbering conventions)

Graphing Earthquake and Radiation Data in Japan
I wouldn't call this a real mashup, but someone has gone to the trouble of collating and graphing radiation and earthquake info into an easily understandable format. Why the hell doesn't the government/TEPCO do this, when some citizen can, instead of hiding and obscuring data in number heavy PDF's? Are they being deliberately obtuse to prevent easy information dissemination?

Seems to be a GPS enabled site for access by iPhones, Android, and GPS equipped PC's, to show what rolling blackout area you are in and when the blackout will come.

Quake-Catcher Network
Uses accelerometers in smartphones and latptop harddrives to detect seismic activity over a distributed sensor network. Lower quality sensors, but in theory a far larger number that could potentially survive a first large quake to provide continued monitoring.
