Among the many things the Bay Area learned from the recent shaker near Napa is that UC Berkeley's earthquake warning system does indeed work for the handful of people who receive its messages, but the rest of us find out about a tremor only after it knocks us out of bed. Silicon Valley has made apps that tell us when our Uber ride is approaching, our air conditioning has broken or a thunderstorm is brewing.
