It's Earth Hour!
Polistra and Happystar are doing something a bit different for Earth Hour tonight. Celebrating the renaissance of gas!
The Signal House on the hill is my digital model of the "Gas-Light Night Telegraph"
dreamed up by some nameless and penniless inventor in 1826. His system never came to fruition because Wheatstone's electric telegraph
came along at the same time.
In the spirit of alternate futures, I wanted to take up his dream and complete it. Seems especially appropriate now that the gas era has come around again. Circles and circles and circles and circles.... Nature is never linear.

Update: The digital model is now released on my ShareCG page.
