Very interesting conversation going on here yesterday as well as over on the Strong Towns Network (the interconnectedness of Keynesianism and the Suburban Experiment). You can continue in that thread if you'd like or check out some of the other conversations going on.

  • Matt Steele is trying to get a posse together to head over to Pine Island, MN, and give it a Better Block renovation. Some good photos express his vision.
  • Stephen Stofka presents a thoughtful challenge for how we can get rid of signs and instead communicate the rules of a place with the materials we use. Fascinating discussion.
  • And finally, for those that just can't get enough debate over economics politics, the Reinhart/Rogoff discussion is ongoing. I'm even joining in and I'm not playing Minnesota Nice.

The Strong Towns Network is a social space devoted to those of us that are working to implement Strong Towns thinking at the local level. We are suggesting a small donation to help us maintain the site, but everyone passionate about these issues is welcome, regardless of ability to pay.
