Gloopy Electronics

The Telegraph in the UK have photo galleries that are regularly updated and often present a gorgeous window on our world. I keep up with additions here via their twitter feed, I really like Twitter in this role, I dont use it as a conversation type thing. This image is one of my favourites, showing an electron microscope view of an EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) silicon microchip from a new book, Microcosmos.
