Links for Saturday, February 10, 2007

  • Boeing 787: Advanced Composite Design – This is a very cool video of some robots creating composite fuselage sections for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner; you can see them taping down layer after layer of the base material, and then putting the secton into the autoclave for curing.
  • Vancouver 2010: RSS Feeds – “Vancouver 2010 offers RSS feeds so you can stay on top of the exciting 2010 Winter Games experience.” In additional to the expected feeds for news releases and featured stories, they also have feeds for jobs and for procurement opportunities.
  • Jeffrey McManus: The Christmas Present That’s Gathering Dust – “The next time I got to a Disney theme park, I plan on hurling this device off the top of the Matterhorn in hopes that it breaks into enough pieces that no one else will be tempted to waste time getting it to work. Avoid this product at all costs.
