Tech Stuff 23

 

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.

The story of the Radio Flyer.  Who didn’t have one of these as a kid, at least in the US

One thing that probably helped the company during the Great Depression was that kid were more handy in those days and when you are doing stuff a wagon is useful for a bunch of stuff and the wheels for even more.
