Watch This

 A group at MIT is working to develop a way for local communities to keep tabs on extraction industries operating in their area.  The Landman Report Card is:

the first in a suite of applications designed to help communities affected by extractive industries to recognize, report, and act on their interests. LRC allows landowners to document, discuss, and rate their experiences with landmen, the professional negotiators who work for oil and gas companies. We are currently deploying the application in communities in several states in the US.

Once fully developed, this and similar programs could be an invaluable tool to people across Arkansas.
