Transmission tower in Dreamtopia, inspired by San Francisco’s Sutro Tower
Earlier this week, the ngmoco:) team behind We Rule released our latest game: Dreamtopia! (Currently only available for Android.)
The basic premise behind the game is that you have have the ability to make dreams come true — in order to do that, you need to build things to fulfill various goals for each character.
Imagine my surprise when I saw this absolutely awesome take on San Francisco’s very own Sutro Tower inside our game! I think it raises a valid point:
How awesome would it be if there were a restaurant / observation deck on top of Sutro Tower?
I’m not the only one to wonder this. Three years ago, Laughing Squid had an awesome post on what it was like from the top of Sutro Tower.

So, who do we have to talk to in order to make this happen? 😉
EDIT: The Big Picture is featuring powerful and scary photos of the damage.
We’re just starting to find out how bad today’s M6.3 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand was.
A former professor of ours when we were in New Zealand in 2006 dropped us an email this evening and let us know that it was going to be bad. He also informed us that the iconic Christchurch Cathedral in the center of the city was destroyed.
It was an absolutely beautiful building – originally built in mid-1800’s and completed in 1904.
As we saw it in 2006:
And as it lays today:
My heart goes out to everyone in Christchurch. This is going to be fairly bad.
A few weeks ago, I went walking through San Francisco and took my trust Canon S90 along with me. I shot a few photos of the Transamerica Pyramid, one of the more distinctive high rises in San Francisco.
