Leave it to a story about Playboy hot tubs to call attention microbes in the built environment #microBEnet

Well, we posted about this story before – Legionella bacteria popped up at a party at the playboy mansion in February.  And now apparently the source of the Legionella bacteria has been traced to … hot tubs (see Playboy Mansion illness traced to hot tub bacteria – Yahoo! News).  Also of note – the epidemiologists used Social Media to contact the conference attendees.  Not sure why – you would think Playboy would have a list somewhere.  Anyway – studies of microbes in water systems or other very wet places (e.g., shower heads) are getting more attention these days.
