It’s Official!

I’ve decided to start a blog.  It may take the form of anything from a database of random, interesting information, to a miniature public forum.   In any case, it’s here to make people think.

The name of the blog “When the Levee Broke” comes from a song by Led Zeppelin (When the Levee Breaks).  It’s a great listen to anyone who hasn’t heard it.  The name has a bit of a post-apocalyptic ring to it, which is a subject in art and film that’s always intrigued me.  People tend to keep their lives going as if things won’t change, but we as a human race are definitely NOT permanent.  Of course, that’s no reason to be negative!

Anyway, it seems like Vincent Callebaut from Belgium has the right idea.  He’s designed theoretical “lily pad” cities that can carry huge numbers of people and even produce their own energy-

Credit to MailOnline for that one.

It’s good to know that when the levee breaks, at least some of us will be ready.
