comment Looking for information on a Lego manual I had as a kid
Sadly, I'm not certain that the model in the book was by Larry Page. Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Page) says that Page designed his LEGO plotter whilst at University. The Idea Book was published in 1980 when Page would have been about 7 years old. I don't doubt that a prodigious 7-year-old might come up with a clever LEGO design, but I'm not sure that he would be at University by that age.

You're welcome. I absolutely loved this book, and was always fascinated by the plotter. I don't think that it is any coincidence that I enjoy a career as a programmer, and would site this model as one of the inspirations behind my vocation. I'm delighted to be reminded of it all.

comment What is the basis for saying rock music is sinful?
This is exactly the kind of answer I was looking for when I wrote the question. The only improvement would be a few citations to support your historical observations, but even without them, this is a really great answer.

comment LEGOs are off-topic, as they have their own SE site
As you imply, there may be some common ground. General, aesthetic, structural and mechanical principles apply to all constructions, whether they're made of LEGO, Meccano or anything else. That said, I can't imagine a single Q&A site that would suit structural engineers, AFOLs (adult fans of LEGO) and ice sculptors - there are just too many differences.
