Australia? Is anyone there?

It is December 21 Down Under and much of the world is nervously waiting to find out if the Mayan doomsday scenario came true. 

Concerned bloggers have tweeted their fellow Internet users in Australia for confirmation they are alive. 

Other bloggers are spreading rumors – at least, we hope they are rumors – of a massive earthquake rocking the country, signalling the end of the world as we know it.
