I forgot to post this before, but Ronald Barba did a great writeup of WattBuddy and WattZ in Tech Cocktail last month. He talked to me and covered both applications really well in the run up to the Department of Energy contest. I'm super excited that he took the time to dive deep and help us get the word out about saving money and electricity with WattB.
