Bonus Computing History Museum corner:
- Museum of Communications - Seattle museum (not far from the Georgetown Steam Plant museum) with vast arrays of ancient telephony, communications and computing hardware. I need to go, with a camera.
- Living Computer Museum - another Seattle computer museum, this time with Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen emptying his attic of antiquated but operational computing hardware.
- Bletchley Park - Alan Turing, Tommy Flowers and friends showing everyone how it's really done.

Everyone else was busy prancing around with Tumblr, Instagram, Twitpic and the like, so I decided to join in on the fun with my home-made Silicotypes. Needlessly referencing older photographic systems, the defining characteristics of this new, semiconductor-based photography are a distinct lack of context, limited descriptions and metadata, and a burgeoning need to tidy everything up and upload properly to Flickr.
Stream of consciousness photography, pretty much.
As ever, there's yet another RSS feed - and perhaps at some point in the not-too-distant future I'll add commenting and search abilities.
For now, just subscribe to the RSS and watch the inexplicable photography arrive...
Sundays are for realising the combination of a cold and jet-lag has prevented the Saturday night compilation of the latest Sunday Things. So in a way, this is late - and for the first time ever - but it's still Sunday. So things can't be so bad?
Bonus Extreme Weather corner:
- Extreme Instability - people's hero goes chasing storms in a car with a camera. I went through what looked like a weather front in northern France the other day - a huge bank of clouds with damp consequences on the other side.
- Atmospheric Optics - all those funny crepuscular rays, parhelia, supernumerary rainbows, halos and noctilucent clouds all have names, don't you know.
- French Warship versus Big Waves - I'm hoping for weather like that on Lake Washington. The 271 bus has already been splashed by smaller waves...
