Last few days have been tapping lightly on my wanna-be archaeologist/historian tendencies…
We seem to be kind of all mixed up back a ways….
Throughout the bitter days of the Warsaw Ghetto, a clandestine group of researchers compiled a vast archive detailing every aspect of life in this prison city built and then obliterated by the Nazis. Led by a historian, Emanuel Ringelblum, the group then buried the archive for for future generations.
Another thing that would be worth reading.
I remember reading about the Buffalo as a kid, very briefly.
It’s interesting that one somewhat survives here.
Great Santa on a Screaming Harley….
Yet another of those just excessively cool things to learn about…..
A lonely island in the middle of the South Atlantic conceals Charles Darwin’s best-kept secret.
Two hundred years ago, Ascension Island was a barren volcanic edifice.
Today, its peaks are covered by lush tropical “cloud forest”.
Even in that old closet no one’s looked in for like a hundred and thirty years.
A group of artists and hackers have crafted a gadget that lets a paralyzed graffiti artist continue making art using only his eyes. And it costs about as much as an iPod shuffle.
I’m not getting into the argument about what this guy does with his talent. I’m not hugely a fan of graffiti as such, but I don’t see it as The End of Life As We Know It either, and some of those guys are just incredibly talented, so..
but the tech, and the price… yow. That’s good to know.
