What do folding rulers, corkscrews and teabags have in common? All were chosen by the Vitra Museum in Germany for the travelling exhibition, Hidden Heroes.

While it is worth knowing that graphite pencils democratized writing or that the post-it note owes its success to the failure of a glue, Executive Director Laura Flusche further noted that we poised on the threshold of a new way of obtaining things. The museum's trio of MakerBot 3-D printers stole the show at Friday's media preview.

My ride downtown Thursday was quite good to the blog, giving me seven stylish strangers and a wonderful lunch of spinach quiche from Le French Quarter Cafe inside the Healey Building. Their sweets were tempting, too. I remember an apple pie from last year's Phoenix Flies, when we toured the neo-Gothic apartment building on its centenary. Dates for this year's celebration of historic architecture are March 8-23. Atlanta Preservation Center
