Event: Ignite Phoenix 3 @ TCA
Event Date: February 25th, 2009

My historical specialty is exploring the weird linkage between events. For this talk, I’ll show why Ancient Roman construction projects, secret societies, Sir Francis Bacon, and solar panels are responsible for something found in tens of thousands of public lavatories today.
