5 Tons of Flax

What the deuce!

A train runs through it

Street Use is a blog about ways in which people adapt technology (or adapt to technology) in creative ways – ways that are probably not covered under warranty. Usually its posts focus on the wacky – and very clever – things people in developing countries are doing with technology that middle class westerners would never, ever think of. It’s from the same blogger who runs Cool Tools, which is sort of a compendium of products that rock. Think of a mini Whole Earth Catalog done as a blog.

Anyway, here’s a video they had up on Street Use today. I suspect that, whatever the problems these people have (e.g., poverty), single-use zoning laws (or at least their enforcement) don’t rank highly among them. It’s from a Bangkok market.
