The next couple weeks are both busy and exciting for me. I’ve got more stickers (black too!) on order and new tshirts on the way. Aug 1-2 is Black Hat, a computer security convention, followed by Defcon 3-5 then on the 6th I fly into Dusseldorf, Germany for CCCamp August 8-12th. After the camp I’ll be touring a few hacker spaces with a group: Berlin, Hamburg, Vienna, Karlsruhe, Cologne, Bonn, and Darmstadt. I return on August 20th (another direct flight). Then I think I’ll sleep for a week to make it a solid month (I’ll probably need to by then).
Pictured are the largest urinals west of the Mississippi (if the east coast pair even exist anymore). Pride of the University of Nebraska’s Architecture College, the Hinsdale urinals were installed when the building was built in the 1890s. The urinals were relocated in 1985 during a renovation which attached the old law college building. Every year the architecture college has a celebration around the Hinsdale’s patent date (which is near Halloween, so they combine the two). Thanks to Lane for this picture. Here’s the inscription:
“Many a Zen master envies the Hinsdale’s serene ability to teach the eternal truth that it is in loss that one gains and that, here in the solitude of the Hinsdale is most certainly where men come to find themselves.” – Rodger Welsch November, 1986.
Update: It looks like the other is pair at Old Town Bar in New York.
