Tech Stuff 3

This is a sort of search and discover newsletter of my findings of things that may relate to technology in one way or another.  It might be the latest gosh wow tech, it might be something as old of humanity.  It might relate to science large or small.  It might be art for art’s sake.  Or somebody just doing something funky. Because I think that technology is just the representation of human creativity and breaking boundaries.  So I’m certainly not going to place boundaries here except that it won’t be the same old, same old.  So almost no gadgets or yacking about the latest phone or whatever, unless of course it involves taking them apart or destroying them in unusual ways.  Or putting them to work in imaginative ways that most people won’t even think of.  So buckle up, it’s going to be a fun ride.

I wonder if the Klingon ship is still in Virginia.

SS Monte Carlo, a Sand Diego “sin ship.”  There are the remains of a rum runner off Todd’s Point in Old Greenwich CT that were occasionally visible at very low tides when I was growing up.  I wonder how many of those “sin ships” are waiting to be found.

Old China new China.

An interesting pic of old village house being squeezed out under the new skyway.

H/T messy nessy chic.

The fastest object ever.

A manhole cover over  nuke test gone wrong.  So if you encounter a melted steel disk in New Mexico you may have found the  fastest object ever.

GE is dropping CFL’s

Does that mean that we can get real light bulbs back?

Is the industrial internet of things the fourth industrial revolution?

Whatever happens it’s going to be interesting.

I used to work for a company that made CNG compressors for vehicle use.  This is not a good thing.

    Yes, the Klingon ship is still in Virginia. Governor McAuliffe uses it to commute back to Q’onos every weekend. . . (grin)
