: New: Book Report: Infrastructure

If your memory is very good, you remember that a few years ago I reported on Infrastructure, a gorgeous book about the systems of industry, agriculture, transport, information, and waste that surround us.

I just finished reading the 2014 update. Updates abound; all too many around disasters befallen meanwhile. But it's not all bad news. The Panama Canal's getting bigger, and "panamax" thus doesn't mean what it used to. Anyhow. This book is still a pleasure to read. A new edition is a good excuse to read it again.
