Link New Urban Living Magazine remote url Link 2004-10-30 2004-10-30
  I wrote my initial proposal for a "carfree lifestyle magazine":../carfreeliving only two weeks ago. And now I find this (from a post on "pro-urb":../pro-urb seeking classifieds for their mag). They said it is at present free to post a classified ad. I'm not able to find a statement of purpose on their website, but here are some culled from links to their site: <blockquote> Lifestyle magazine for residents of Traditional Neighborhood Developments.</blockquote> <blockquote>A supplement to our print publication, New Urban Living magazine. In addition to the news-related articles found online, New Urban Living Magazine carries profiles of communities, features, award-winning homes, quality of life articles, home and outdoor tips, resort features, community tips, event coverage, book reviews, plus much more.</blockquote> Interestingly, but not surprisingly, the founder of the mag, Stephen Martin (I believe), may not be carfree. Here are some posts from the "Celebration, Florida discussion":http://www.34747.org/ forum: <blockquote>"2004-04-27":http://www.34747.com/forum/display_topic_threads.asp?ForumID=1&TopicID=2105&PagePosition=1&get=last I am with New Urban Living magazine. We are trying to locate someone who owns a Porsche in Celebration for a quick photo shot.</blockquote> And there is even a "Celebration Exotic Car Celebration":http://www.celebrationexoticcars.com! "Adam Parish":http://www.garageapartments.com/v3-ap-bio.asp also is/was working with the mag. I found my vision in reality with a vengeance! In truth, though, they are targeting a different market than what I had in mind, though I hoped the carfree mag would benefit from having some high-income readers&mdash;the ones *New Urban Living* is focusing on.
Link PRO-URB list on the practice of new urbanism remote url Link 2004-10-30 2004-10-30
  This is the main list for discussion of new urbanist topics. It is very high-volume&mdash;as many as 10 messages/day&mdash;with over 650 members. You'll need to petition the list owner to be added as a member and to see the archives (write a bit about the reason for your interest). Some other new urbanist lists that do / did not require membership approval are: o "CNU@LSV.UKY.EDU":http://catalist.lsoft.com/scripts/wl.exe?SL1=CNU&H=LSV.UKY.EDU o "Next Generation Urbanists":http://listserv.miami.edu/archives/urbangeneration.html Here are the list guidelines for pro-urb: a. no more than 2 messages per day unless forwarding material without comment (newspaper articles, weblinks, etc) b. no one liners like "I agree" or "thank you for that" c. send messages meant for an individual or a few subscribers off-list, not to the entire group d. no flaming. Be nice e. IMPORTANT: STAY ON TOPIC: urbanism, codes, city planning, technical issues like transit/transportation, issues of design and architecture related to urbanism, and such, and avoid discussions that are rehashes from days of yore (e.g. Seaside and picket fences, NU and nostalgia). Philosophical observations are welcome, so long as they directly pertain to the topic of urbanism and the list's defined issues. f. REMEMBER THAT Pro-Urb is NEW URBANISM SEMINAR 5010, it is not New Urbanism 101. As such, submissions must be substantive. Questions about real problems to solicit solutions and discussion by experts are welcome. However, please do not post questionnaires. g. You may post images 100KB or less, and if you have a question about images, please contact me off-list before you post. h. If you accidentally send a posting meant for an individual to the list, please do not post an apology for doing so back to the list. i. JOB POSTINGS, RFQ's, and RFP's of interest to the list are welcome. Please do not post resumes or job solicitations by individuals. Faculty may send out brief statements if they have graduating students they feel are particularly qualified for employment in the field, with a request for potential employers to contact offlist. If you have problems posting, unsubscribing, or changing settings on your subscription, please contact the list owner. She'll be happy to help.
Link Dvorak with Spanish characters for Windows 2000 + remote url Link 2004-10-31 2004-10-31
  I've been dealing with trying to type Spanish characters in various applications on Windows 2000 using the dvorak layout. Thanks to "Matt Frear's work":http://marcs.uws.edu.au/research/software/dvorak.htm, I was able to make a layout of my own... All my problems are not fixed, however as "vim":http://www.vim.org is doing strange things with some of the deadkeys (instead of making "" it produces "' 1", for example). But, "here's my layout":kbdvspc.zip. It includes characters such as and (&#161; and &#191;) and (&#252;) that Matt's does not. It also does not use the ` character or let you make any of the characters with the accent grave&mdash;this layout is only for Spanish. I do wish I were using linux, but until I have time to see how "suspend to disk":http://softwaresuspend.berlios.de/ works on my laptop with the new kernels&mdash;a project I'd rather avoid, though time costs of dealing with windows are adding up&mdash;I'm stuck dealing with the MS OS. One thing I've done to get some more exposure to Spanish is to change all the UIs I can to that language. Unfortunately, unlike with Linux, it costs $$ to legally switch the win2k OS base langage to Spanish. Note that I associated this keyboard layout with the *Spanish (Spain)* language, unlike what Matt did with his. On the Macintosh OS X it is easy to type these characters even in the dvorak layout. I have heard that newer versions of windows come with a dvorak international layout.

Document Colin's Third Update Document 2004-12-19 2008-03-05 2004-12-19
  This is my third entry of "what I have learned in the past 4-12 months."
Link ChangeThis - PDF Manifestos remote url Link 2004-12-21 2004-12-21
  I first learned of this from planetizen's weekly news email in their link to Greusel's manifesto "Legalize Neighborhoods Again!":http://www.changethis.com/sp-5.LegalizeNeighborhoods I didn't put a link here then because I wasn't that impressed..., I liked "kuro5hin.org":http://kuro5hin.org better. But now, months later, I wanted to see what new manifestos they might have, and couldn't remember the web site. So here's the link. Their idea is similar to what I was thinking for the carfree magazine, at least in the pdf-centric approach. From their site: <blockquote> ChangeThis is creating a new kind of media. A form of media that uses existing tools (like PDFs, blogs and the web) to challenge the way ideas are created and spread. We're on a mission to spread important ideas and change minds. </blockquote>

Link Intentional Community Database remote url Link 2004-12-24 2004-12-26
  I keep forgetting to add this. icdb.org is a self-serve, open, free, multi-lingual and paperless database/directory, serving intentional communities, and their organizations, individuals and groups searching for intentional communities, and curious aliens observing the evolution of the earth's future civilization (and/or beyond) from afar... "Ofek":../ofek made it.
Document Journalism in San Diego and the miracle that things exist Document 2004-12-26 2005-05-17 2004-12-26
  The original title was "Are there any Journalists in San Diego?" Here's the old description, for now, if only to show what I once did: "The Union Tribune's avoidance of serious investigative reporting is partly responsible for mismanagement by and corruption of local government officials. Here are some links to news sources that may document what is happening in San Diego rather than filling their pages with fluff and AP / NYT wire feeds."
Link Toxic Breast Milk? by Florence Williams remote url Link 2005-01-09 2005-01-09
  Once the free NYT (registration required) link expires, try: * "google":http://www.google.com/search?q=%22toxic+breast+milk%22+%22florence+williams%22 * "googlegroups":http://groups.google.com/groups?q=%22toxic%20breast%20milk%22%20%22florence%20williams%22 The process of civilization poisoning itself fascinates me. I do think we can learn from these stories and activists. Now, to get all plastic &amp; foam out of the house... But still we'll have the groups like the Plastics and Film Industry Association, or Dupont/Union Carbide who will assure us it is not their fault, that the activists are off-base, and that the world should use more of their products than before. And in many cases we will! (I spend money on computer-related hardware, at least, and all that that contains). I think what may happen is that through legislation, as with the banning of lead in gas, more of these toxins will be banned. The challenge is developing and institutionalizing a system or stance where these problems are less likely to arise in the first place, such as is suggested by the "precautionary principle":http://www.google.es/search?q=precautionary+principle.
Link Learning Org List remote url Link 2005-01-10 2007-06-28
  "George":http://georgekao.com/ wrote such a good description of the group that I'm taking the liberty of copying it here. If you want to be added, ask me, and I'll ask George. My original intention was that each person would start their own group for their own group of friends. But postings have been so few (none between June 2004 and January 10, 2005) we could use more members in ours. <blockquote> THE IDEA: Be amongst friends (and friends of friends) who are actively learning to live a life true to ourselves our callings in this world. We're not concerned about &ldquo;perfection&rdquo; but rather, about learning, growing, doing what we can to fulfill our highest visions for ourselves and for our world. And, our individual visions won't be exactly the same... the benefit of diversity is to learn from one another! Wouldn't it be cool if such knowledge were archived... and weren't so overwhelming? THE IDEA, APPLIED: Send us an update once every 3 months (no more) about what you're learning working on in the journey to live true to yourself and your calling in the world. LearningOrg will only accept 1 message per member every 3 months. If you want to respond to someone else's message, please put your reply within your own LearningOrg update, or respond to them privately. To keep the quality of the content high, this is an invitation-only group. I'll make sure you get no more than 1 LearningOrg message per day. LearningOrg was inspired by Colin Leath's idea of a place to &ldquo;share the most important things you have learned; challenge yourself with queries. What are your dreams for yourself? For society?&rdquo; His original idea can be found "here":http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FriendsOfColin/message/1. </blockquote>
Document what no one does Document 2005-01-11 2005-01-11 2005-01-11
  Further exploration of the idea that the things most worth knowing and doing do not call attention to themselves. I credit _Encounters with Chinese hermits_ with showing me this perspective. A writing prompt in Spanish class to which I responded with a title, "Mira a lo que no ve" (that may be incorrect Spanish) set this off. I also see the influence of the Ground, Relax, Awareness, Center, Energy (GRACE) part of the ITP Kata routine. Well, I see a lot of things here, including reaction to mass movements and enthusiasms. And a Wilberian (Ken Wilber) or Zen sort of outlook.
Document The ITP Kata by George Leonard and Michael Murphy Document 2005-01-11 2007-10-05 2005-01-11
  This will be here until the authors (their publishers, more likely) complain. Their book is worth buying and owning--and I say that about few books. I only occasionally do the whole thing, but frequently do parts and variations of parts of this. It is a life-changing book and practice!
