Odds and Ends – Neat stuff for Friday

I am taking a one day break from writing about absolutely building related stuff to share some sort of building related neat items and images….

The first is a great post from WebUrbanist.com about the mystique of abandoned places:

Next is a cool post from a series at environmentalgraffiti.com about playable or in this case musical buildings:http://www.environmentalgraffiti.com/offbeat-news/the-biggest-secret-rock-concert-pics/1380

Here we have an article about an idea to harness the energy of dancers by modifying the floor to generate electricity: http://www.psfk.com/2008/06/we-need-more-power-keep-dancing.html

At this site Nikon, the camera folks have put together a great flash presentation on size and distance that is a great help if like me you children who ask lots of questions: http://www.nikon.com/about/feelnikon/universcale/index_f.htm

Lastly a very cool explainer of the up and coming futuristic materials some of which have been in the news:http://lifeboat.com/ex/10.futuristic.materials

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, Stumble Upon or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
