Here is a random assortment of people, companies, and ideas that I like:


Here is an idea I, as an engineer, find interesting about the changing laws concerning building structures.

From the Code of Hammurabi (2200 B.C.):
"If a builder builds a house for a man and does not make its construction firm and the house collapses and causes the death of the owner of the house that builder shall be put to death. If it causes the death of a son of the owner, they shall put to death the son of that builder. If it causes the death of slave of the owner, he shall give a slave of equal value. If it destroys property, he shall resotre whatever it takes and because he did not make the house firm he shall rebuild the house which collapsed at his own expense. If a builder builds a house and does not make its construction meet the requirements and a wall falls in, that builder shall strengthen the wall at his own expense."


Here is an interesting picture to figure out. It took me a couple minutes to understand it. If you don't understand it and want some help, just send me an e-mail and I'll be happy to explain it.
