Seattle's new library is made of glass and it is opening tomorrow. Will any of you be attending the opening? I'm just wondering how the building will handle the earthquakes?

It looks like.... a huge de-formed PowerMac G5.

Cool, nevertheless.

I wonder if they have Macs for the customers to use? If they have new PowerMac G5s, I might visit it. (I live 60 miles south of Seattle).

That is one cool building. It sort of reminds me of the new Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA. I'd definitely go if I lived in the area!

Hopefully the engineers were smart enough to plan for the possibility of earthquakes.

It is a very different design. The top section looks similar to the new Convention Center here in Boston. :cool:
