This post from Worldchanging is pretty much the kitchen sink of development topics. First, probably the best video I’ve ever seen on TOD based on events coming up in Kansas City. Next, commentary on the AIA Seattle What Makes it Green? Awards recognizing the retrofit of Seattle’s 80-year old Joseph Vance Building. This is followed by a very interesting video on trends in lifespan and income over the past 200 years and links to NPR’s Power Hungry series which is centered around the new “smart grid.” After linking to the USGBC’s site for public comment on the upcoming LEED-ND system, it links to and shows some examples of how bike parking can be used as public art, one of many advantages it has over automobile parking. Also included are a few other things which, although they have little to do with this blog, are still pretty cool.
