Over the weekend, I will be at the third annual Dances of Vice Festival! You should be there, too. It looks like it's going to be an amazing time. (DOV is also on Facebook, where they are posting additional details.) Related to DOV is Zelda Magazine, which just came out with its premiere issue. Buy it if you can!
It was once proposed, in the mid-nineteenth centry, that London be zoned into hexagonal shapes. It's true! Strange Maps describes the London that could have been, and points to a book of such things which looks really interesting.
Currently interesting in British transportation: the proposed "road train" technology, in which drivers could link up in a lane and then read, sleep, etc., until they want to get off the road. I have been dreaming about something like this for years, usually during the annual drives to New England.
New amazing steampunky weblogs keep appearing. Two I found this week: Decadent Handbook(specializing in the darker edge of Victorian/Edwardian art and literature) and the Steampunk Family(specializing in all sorts of things).
And finally...A man is building glaciers to stop global warming...and it's working! How wonderfully mad is that?
