Concrete jungle


tunnelI covered the Society of Automotive Engineers conference last week in Detroit's Cobo Hall. I'll write more about it later, since I did attend one nanotech session. Biodegradable nanoplastics. Cool stuff, and of course it reflects the true environmental benefits to nanotechnology, despite what some interest groups would like you to believe.

Anyway, I arrived early in the morning on Tuesday and parked in the Joe Louis Arena parking garage next door. More than a little creepy. I felt like I was in one of those "day after the nuclear holocaust" movies. Not a soul around. Just miles and miles of concrete. That's my Detroit.
