I’ve been to Dubai many times and it’s actually amazing what they do over there.

Recently another new project was announced, a MOVING skyscraper:

Moving Skyscraper

The world’s first moving building, an 80-storey tower with revolving floors giving a shifting shape, will be built in Dubai, its architect says.

The Dynamic Tower design is made up of 80 pre-fabricated apartments which will spin independently of one another.

“It’s the first building that rotates, moves, and changes shape,” said architect David Fisher, who is Italian, at a news conference in New York.

“This building never looks the same, not once in a lifetime,” he added.

The 420-metre (1,378-foot) building’s apartments would spin a full 360 degrees, at voice command, around a central column by means of 79 giant power-generating wind turbines located between each floor.

FF logo I’ve just upgraded both my machines (the desktop beast and the laptop) to Firefox 3 and it has a lot of improvements. No. 1 is definately the speed!

After installing FF3, I’ve added Foxmarks as plugin. This synchronizes your bookmarks accross different PC’s!

Excellent STUFF!

Ever heard of Dogtroep?

We’ve seen their show yesterday; “Montan”.

It is impossible to describe, modern art, technique, music and show.

I really enjoyed it, something completely different.

Unfortunately they will stop performing end of this year.
