Wandering through Cambridge in April and May

More waymarks have been added during this period in Cambridge:

The 3rd Annual Cambridge Science Festival took place in April. This is a city wide celebration over 10 days, starting with the science fair, which, this year, was held on the MIT ground in front of the student union building and Kresge Auditorium, for the first time. Each year, they try to make it different from the last, and they succeeded. I had a good discussion with the people from the Woodshole Institute (WHOI) which was showcasing one of their whale tracking buoys. There was a display about a project to educate Boston area school children about science through baseball. And, at the MIT Museum, I viewed exhibits about social networks and social-based word associations using databases and data miners.

The a test to us to determine how little material can there be where you can still call it a bell tower. Personally, I think that it’s a large can opener.

The benchmark on MIT’s Green Building (Earth Sciences Building) is the first benchmark I logged on It essentially looks the same as wehn I saw it then.

The Athena Statue near Kendall Square is a an unusual golden statue that overlooks the East Cambridge area.
