Computer Perfection at the Ford Piquette Plant

Here they are in Henry Ford’s “Experimental Room.” More tremendous videos, photographs, and some nice introductory words from ME! at

And here’s more on the Ford Piquette Plant from your friend The Night Train.

Last night I had a dream that, while a forest in Detroit burned down, I met and befriended an elderly General William Tecumseh Sherman at a veteran’s home in the city, long forgotten to the world. Today I keep catching myself wondering, “What if he really IS still alive somewhere?” The General would’ve turned 190 this February.

I guess I’m not out of the crazy, stressed-out, weird-history-dreams woods yet.

    Perhaps the first time in music history that both a drill press and lathe have played such an integral role in a performance. Groundbreaking.

    Thanks for the link and the show. Great space and a great song.

    One correction,,, It is the “Secret Room” not the experimental room. Thanks for getting the word out.
