I don't think there is a lot to talk about here, but I did think it made for interesting reading so I decided it was worth a post. I hope you agree.

It's a cool link- glad you posted it, 86. Wish there were a bit more meat to it, though- anyone know of a better resource on the construction of the objects of our obsession?
