We got a bunch of videos from them this week which we’ll parse out over the coming weeks and months. This one takes place at NAM Member Carolina Ceramics in Columbia, South Carolina. It follows the brick making process from the piles of clay and its mixing and extrusion all the way through the kiln which bakes it at up to 2200 degrees. It comes out the other end, well, thick as a brick. It’s way cool to see it. From there it goes to houses and sidewalks and patios in your neighborhood.” [via] – Link.

  1. It would be more facinating if they offered a non-Microsoft stream. Then, I’d be able to view it. Being on a Macintosh which doesn’t support the newest WMP with DRM and can’t seem to connect to their streaming server, I’ve mentioned this to them. Apparently, they are still working on a Podcast solution which isn’t out of beta yet. At least the guy running the site knew about this problem.

    Strange that the FEMA site developers were clueless that their web development tools required Microsoft systems. Our tax dollars at work.
