The extraordinary Center For Land Use Interpretation is a tertiary reference for one of today's posts, and it's been mentioned in comments before. Don't miss the Land Use Database or the Newsletter.

Bother. That should be "yesterday's posts". Mea culpa.

"mea culpa" - the thinking man's "my bad".

On that database, caveat emptor. Much of the information is way out of date or incorrect. For example, under Vermont, Vermont Yankee nuclear plant, it states the plant produces 80% of Vermont's electricity. Actually, it's 1/3, according to Yankee's own page. In Massachusetts, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art -- (a) has a photo that's not the museum, (b) refers to "when completed" -- the museum has been open for 6 years.

The CLUI is an outgrowth (kinda) of the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Definitely worth a trip if you're in Los Angeles.

Somewhat dupish, although the links were diffrent.

Oh, sorry this is not a dupe, I am in fact an idiot. I just clicked one of the links and though "hmm, I've seen something about this atoll on metafilter before".
