Hey, neat! "Morning Edition" just ran a piece on pneumatic tube systems old and new:

The coolest thing: There is not only *more than one* company installing pneumatic tube systems, but they are "viscious rivals" who do things like phuq with each other's web pages.

Hey Tom -

Just saw this over on Slashdot.org...

There's somebody who wants to use old pneumatic tubes and run fiber through them; that's some serious media reuse.

You may not find it relevant, I don't know. Bruce was really big on the ol' pneumatic tubes.
