The New York City Subway System (Building America: Then and Now)

Buy
In 1912, workers digging to create the Broadway Subway, north of Murray Street in lower Manhattan, hit a brick wall approximately 21 feet (6.4 meters) below the street surface. Breaking through the wall, the laborers came upon a tunnel 9 feet (2.7 m) in diameter and lined with eight- inch- thick (20.32 centimeters) bricks. Two rails led into a midnight void, which, it would turn out, curved abruptly at 90 degrees, extending approximately 300 feet (91.44 m) to beneath Park Place. Most startling of all, the excavators, groping forward with shovels in hand, soon came upon the remains of a wooden car— a subway car. Obviously, someone had, a long time earlier, attempted to do what was now being done: build a subterranean transport system. The New York Subway of 1912 was, unmistakably, not the first to be dug beneath the city. Someone— at least on an experimental basis— had been there, done that, before.

Moderating Usability Tests: Principles and Practices for Interacting (Interactive Technologies)

Most of my computing life has been spent in Emacs starting back in 1990 building Obj-C applications for school. I fell in love with the multiple buffers the way I could quickly navigate back and forth between them. I could even run a make and have compiler errors jump me to the offending code, how cool is that! Well it was cool in 1990. Through the...
