Sasquach: Sgygus: Bladeless fan.

You do realize the Dyson fans have a blade in their stem, right?

When those first came out I saw commercials for them and thought they were pretty cool, then I saw them up close and realized in about 2 seconds how they workerd and was completely unimpressed, especially for $200 or whatever they cost.

Ever been to Shanghai?

Chinese architecture is FUN. Just plain, unadulterated, gee-whiz-wouldn't-it-be-cool-if-we-built-that FUN.

Had a great chat about that with a CEO of a major western firm who does business there, and she says while Western clients ask "what can i build for cheap," Chinese clients ask "what can i build that will stand out?"

It's a great time for architecture ... civic and otherwise ... in China right now.

I thought this article was pretty dumb when I first saw it.

What are they building? A bigass, cool thing. People do that sometimes. We like bigass, cool things.

$US16 million for a construct made of 3000 tons of steel 157 meters high?

Miraculous, or someone missed a decimal place or two.
