This blog is about various boat and environment related topics that I care to comment on. First and foremost, this blog is about skin on frame boats, their construction and use, as well as paddle and other stuff related to skin boat use.

The broken technology icon
Here it is, a little icon, a crossed wrench and screwdriver that means something, I don't know what exactly. I think it might mean that by clicking it, I can mess with the technology enclosed in the box that it's in the lower right hand corner of.
But I think of it as the broken technology icon. And for some reason, it reminds me of the hammer and sickle icon that the Soviets used on their flag. In their case, it meant that their state was one of industrial workers and farmers. In this case, the wrench and screwdriver supposedly stand for tools you use to take apart machinery and potentially put it back together again. OK, enough already with the semiotics.
