Like an old rock star who does not know when to quit:
This disabilities journalist continues to blog through the night to describe how 3-and 4-D technology will help elderly and disabled individuals lead better and more productive lives as a result of novel engineering techniques that make your head feel as if it will explode. Of course, the fourth dimension is Time.
Regarding: “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” I can.
Right now, I am publishing a blog on 3- and 4-D technology instrumental in improving the design of elderly and disability housing, a subject on which I have some experience since I live in housing intended for elderly and disabled people such as myself.
The blog will discuss such tools as:
- Google’s Sketchup (available for free)http://sketchup.google.com/download/#utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-ha-na-us-google&utm_medium=ha&utm_term=SketchUp

Sketchup is a favorite. I just made my first 3-D drawing. It is not exactly a drawing. It is OY VAY! in what appears to be 40 foot 3-D letters. I can see Oy Vey! from:
It iis a strange experience to draw huge letters and look at the drawing from underneath the letters, creating a paranoid fantasy of being crushed by letters (or more conventional objects like wheelchairs).
