Things I Like..

Links for Saturday, July 30, 2005

  • Beam Me Out Of This Death Trap, Scotty – Note that this was written in 1980, and that NASA thought they could manage a total of 50 to 75 shuttle flights per year. Why does Don McLean‘s phrase “A generation lost in space” come to mind when I read this?
  • Seafair – The annual Seattle Fair is about to open. The Airshow will take place August 5th through the 7th, we get to see the Blue Angels practice for an entire week from the Amazon building.
  • Issaquah Salmon Days (speaking of festivals), the Salmon Days will be here before too long. See the salmon struggle to swim upstream and to jump through the fish ladder, and lots more.
  • MapBuilder.net – Create your very own customized Google Map (I will use this to map out our recent (and still to be blogged) road trip).
