Facebook Birthplace at Harvard; Urban Farm Under I-93

New, 2 comments

MID-CAMBRIDGE—Still, the dorm in Harvard's Kirkland House remains a pilgrimage site of sorts: "The room where Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook is small. It's cramped. But, even more than that, a relative of one former occupant told the Globe the dull, un-air-conditioned space with paper-thin walls is a 'prison.'" []
SOUTH END—Yes, of course build a farm under the I-93 overpass: "This micro farm in a freight container is a collaboration between b.good co-founders Jon Olinto and Anthony Ackil and finance man-turned-farmer Scott DeLuca of Reading. Their upcycled shipping container houses a hydroponic farm growing several varieties of kale and lettuce that will be used in b.good kitchens." [Globe]
