MIT's Stata Center is completed ....

The Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) is certainly an attraction in itself. I shake my head every time I walk by. "What were they thinking?" "What IS it suppose to represent?" "Who would even build this?" ... Only at MIT.
"Do I even LIKE it?" LOL

I guess I do ... I keep taking pictures!

Check out my Travelogue on the Stata Center and the Evolving Campus of MIT for updates on construction.

M.I.T.

I work at M.I.T. A great place to be really!

Visit M.I.T. and Harvard University (which is just two "T" stops away from MIT), while you're in Cambridge. There's a lot of history and art here. A lot of diversity also ... another reason I like it here so much.

Wright Brothers Flyer on top of MIT Dome

On December 17, 2003,
to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first controlled powered flight, a replica of the Wright Brothers' first airplane made its way onto the great dome of MIT. Inside the plane, a dummy figure of one of the brothers was along for the ride.

I took this picture while three people were up there setting it up. Ah, I think I caught them in the act of putting it up this year's "hack." M-m-m-m-m, every year it's a new surprise!
