Suburbia Retrofit, Emotional Infrastructure And Jimmy’s Return (The Weekly Chatter)

I need to rest up for Saturday’s litany of activities.

Weekly Chatter

Twitterville

  • RT (WalkableDFW) bike helmets don’t increase safety. safe roads/bike infrastructure does.
  • RT (YuriArtibise) Generations do differ, but less because people differ than because opportunities do. -Clay Shirky, CognitiveSurplus
  • RT(bikehugger) A friend is protesting the sell-out corporatization of riding your bike, by driving during Bike to Work week. No schwag from tents for him.
  • RT (PPS_Placemaking) Place matters anywhere in the world. Place is predictive of behavior & the future of the people that live there. @SimsRon of HUD
  • RT (ccoletta) I’ve worked @ Ford 30 yrs & we’ve worried abt how to sell more cars. Now I worry abt this: What if all we do is sell more cars?-Bill Ford

To Wrap

Gas Prices: With political talk running on oil and getting no where (Grist) you’d think reducing our personal gasoline bill should make sense (Raise the Hammer). Yet, unfortunately, most Americans just aren’t wired for behavioral change (Time) and instead look to some higher calling to do something about it (Triple Pundit). Why? Well, for starters we simply keep getting reminded of it because guys like Jimmy MacMillan are getting paid to say it. Are  “Gasoline is too damn high?” Whatever wing-nut.
