Plastics are loved by "The New Yorker"

It's not a well done tribute, but a tribute nonetheless. Those are kinda hard to find these days.

And no, I don't believe that James Dyson is the first billionaire who fortune was built on plastics. (I wouldn't even say that his fortune is built on plastics, but instead on innovative, engaging design.)

Kudos to BarneyGrubbs for the tip.

Thanks for sharing this link, but unfortunately it seems to be down... Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please answer to my post if you do!

I would appreciate if a staff member here at rheothing.blogspot.com could post it.

I'm not sure what to say. It worked fine for me this morning.

You could start at the New Yorker home page, click on the "Reporting & Essays" tab, then on "News Desk" which is about half way down the page in the middle, and then scroll down to the articles from September 13. The entry is by John Seabrook.

exactly the same in the past? Keep up the great work!
