Today I'm in Portland, Maine, for the Build Maine conference (follow the conversation on Twitter at #buildmaine) with my friends Mike Lydon and John Anderson. Driving and flying from Hays, Kansas to Lewiston meant I did not get anything written for today, but fortunately CNU has started publishing videos from Dallas. Here is one of the sessions I made, specifically to hear Jarrett Walker. Enjoy.
Sadly, I sense PACs have been stuffed into the growing suite of orderly but dumb solutions. Imagine if we had to throw away the trendy instruction manual on how to become a "world-class city" and instead demanded of each other to just think. Imagine if we looked at our constraints (people, cash, geography, climate, culture) and then decided to work within them, creatively. That's what has always made places interesting and remarkable!
