Today Donald Rumsfeld spoke about the necessity of American prepardness for another 9/11.

When stairs remain the only evacuation means, how much safer are the post 9/11 tall buildings at WTC site?

New innovations are perhaps not being fully exploited due to the conservative nature of architects and developers.

One such invention I feel is worthy of comment is 'Maglide' a Life Saving Mass Evacuation System, simplistic in design and yet to date ignored despite concerted efforts to Licence and huge expert opinion support :bash: .

How can this and other ideas and inventions be taken up, brought to market and installed if engineers, architects and developers are not to support them and look to ways to incorporate these ideas into codes of practice for safer high rise buildings.
