IceHouse and the Future
Lots of pieces to tie together.
For one, the dudes at IceHouse Detroit have finished up their project! They have revealed their location and the house is fully frozen. Go see it before the sun takes over and melts that baby. 3920 McClellan is the address, or check out the IceDudes blog. In the spirit of congratulations to Greg and Matthew for pulling off the IceHouse (and avoiding, for the most part, jokes about cheap beer) and to rip off the ingenuity of Jerry over at LOVELAND, it is very possible another piece of Detroit will be frozen in the appraoching days. Stay tuned.
I became aware of a project recently called DART (Detroit Area Rescue Team). These guys are trying fill in the gaps in the charity scene, which, from the looks of their site, translates to them hitting the streets with gobs of food and clothing to give out to those in need. Pretty cool. They have some photos posted of the latest drive.
Stumbled across this video that gives a snapshot of THE FUTURE with high speed light rail and the way it could affect our lives in different ways. It’s part uber-cool and cheesy at times, but either way, it makes a case for how cool it could be with a ubiquitous high speed rail system in place in the US.
