Online Encyclopedia of the obscure

Awesome new site called Atlas Obscura. As the site says, "A compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities and esoterica."

It's a young site, so it still needs a lot of material. But users can add new material themselves. That's awesome.

Here's a sample:

"When CEO Jon Karlung secured a former nuclear bunker below 100 ft. of Stockholm bedrock as the site for a data center, he thought it might be fun to live out his fandom of 1970's sci-fi in the design of the place."
