Reading and things

Check out this neat video of "Bicycle Animation!" A student created the video to understand how animation is created. The paper animation is not visible to the naked eye, but only through film. Pretty amazing! And bikes!

Having been away from this blog for quite some time, here are some favorite reads and media from the past week or two:
  • To Sleep on the Subway, Maybe, But to Dream? Poor Chance - New York Times
  • Minority Report at the US Border - An unwelcome encounter between a cyclist without a helmet and a border patrol agent on the Amtrak Cascades line between Vancouver and Seattle - Copenhagenize
  • "Street Fighter: One woman's mission to fight gridlock" - An interview with New York City's transportation commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan - MSNBC
  • New condos going up in Sunny Isles Beach, FL (near where I lived formerly) will have parking spots specifically for Porsche sports cars...gross - Wall Street Journal
  • Disappointingly, Canada is pulling out of the Kyoto Protocol agreement - CBC
  • Hamburg, Germany to Cover Expanded Highway with Public Park - The City Fix
  • Bike sharing for cities with helmet laws like Vancouver, Seattle? Yes! - Atlantic Cities
