I have been commissioned by the Glasgow City Marketing Bureau to develop the content for a "Geek Guide to Glasgow". This will be a predominantly online resource with some hardcopy downloads too and will offer some offbeat ideas for the technically-minded tourist in the City of Glasgow. The concept is similar to The Geek Atlas http://www.geekatlas.com
, but more locally focussed.
I would be glad of any ideas relating to any area of pure or applied sciences/technology, which might include such things as:
A building that was the first (or very early adopter) to use a new technology/materials
A building that is the last known standing of its type/use
Location of a discovery or where a well known person (or unsung hero) lived/worked (even if the original building is now gone)
Memorials of any kind
Stories, myths even, relating to people or locations, in relation to technology
I have to have the first draft ready for end of March, so any ideas that come to mind - please let me know asap, so that I can get the research and photography done quickly.
