Link Walton Feed / Rainy Day Foods remote url Link 2004-02-21 2004-02-21
  If you are carfree and living far from your favorite food coop, and miss your soaked organic oat and buckwheat groats, Walton Feed can help. Their prices are great. I was able to order only 50lbs and have them shipped to my door for less than the same amount of goods would have cost if I picked them up at local coop (including bulk and member discounts). There are many thought-provoking articles and resources on their site as well. Maybe in the future, when disaster strikes, the carfree people will be able to make it through as well as the Mormons.

Link City of Villages remote url Link 2004-02-24 2004-02-24
  A new urbanism vision for San Diego will at least be better that the way it is now! "The Paseo":http://www.sdsuniverse.info/story.asp?id=13899 is one of the more pedestrian-friendly projects near the trolley stop at SDSU that earned a designation as a City of Villages pilot project.
Link Reason Surface Transportation Studies remote url Link 2004-02-24 2004-06-24
  They are coming down clearly on the side of continued car-use and things like bus rapid transit instead of rail systems. What are they *not* taking into account in their studies? An "article":http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/metro/20040217-9999-1m17rail.html on their *Great Rail Disaster* study made it into the San Diego Union Tribune not long ago. I got the feeling that the planners at city hall are fairly pro-rail, at least in this case, however.
Document Vision Research Project: overview and methodology Document 2004-02-25 2007-10-05 2004-02-25
  The abstract concept of vision (defined here as a projection of one's current self into an imagined future) is presented, and reasons why the concept is of interest are discussed. A research program for improving (1) our understanding of visions and (2) our ability to express and share visions is outlined.

Document Analysis: Four men in a room Document 2004-03-07 2007-10-05 2004-03-07
  The vision expressed in the script *Four men in a room* is explored. Some basic questions about the expressive form and content of the play are addressed.
Document Ken Wilber: what he means to Colin Document 2004-03-07 2008-03-05 2004-03-07
  I mention Ken Wilber so much, I thought I should have a page explaining a bit about what I mean by Ken Wilber.
Document Analysis: Ten steps to a new vision Document 2004-03-08 2005-04-02 2004-03-08
  *Ten steps to a new vision* expresses a vision of a mass dialog that addresses "Where are we going as a people, and what is my part in it?" *Ten steps* is targeted at a more general audience than is *Four men in a room*. At the same time, *Ten steps* retains language and themes specific to the author's outlook, and is a sort of self- and subculture-satire.

Link Walkable Communities, Inc. remote url Link 2004-03-11 2004-03-11
  "A non-profit corporation ... organized for the express purposes of helping whole communities, whether they are large cities or small towns, or parts of communities, i.e. neighborhoods, business districts, parks, school districts, subdivisions, specific roadway corridors, etc., become more walkable and pedestrian friendly." Beautiful. See especially the "Walkable communities by region":http://www.walkable.org/article6.htm section by Dan Burden. I am ecstatic to find this... While I value the "carbusting" approach... I'm not too motivated to work that angle. Walkable communities on the other hand... Maybe in the future I'll be working more with walkamerica, walk21 and the like! In addition, Dan has started a "walkable communities listserve":http://lists.topica.com/lists/walkable/.
Link Walk San Diego remote url Link 2004-03-11 2004-03-11
  Oh joy of joys! from their site: VISION We envision San Diego communities that invite walking as a preferred choice for transportation and recreation for all people. MISSION WalkSanDiego is dedicated to enhancing the livability of communities, through promotion, education, and advocacy, by making walking a safe and viable choice for all people. HISTORY WalkSanDiego was formed in 1998 to address the unique needs of pedestrians within the San Diego region. Our board consists of transportation professionals, land use planners, health advocates, injury prevention specialists, and residents who want to improve the pedestrian environment. We believe the region's traffic congestion is largely due to poor planning and few alternatives to driving, forcing everyone to use cars for most trips. Many trips could be made on foot within one's own community. We can help make it happen. WalkSanDiego is a 501 (c) (3) organization, so your membership donation is tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the extent allowed by law. " They have a "newsletter":http://www.walksandiego.org/pages/newsletter.html

Link UCSD Campus Impressions remote url Link 2004-03-14 2004-03-14
  Usually I find college campuses to be among the few respites from car-infested surroundings... There are carfree areas on UCSD, but the campus in general has the feel of a "Le Corbusian":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Corbusier / Modernist playground. Imagine monster buildings widely spread apart towering above diminuitive pedestrians, who must walk a long way from one towering monster to another. The newer buildings, for example, "Eleanor Roosevelt College":http://provost.ucsd.edu/roosevelt/, look like something out of "Gattaca":http://images.google.com/images?q=gattaca. The area around the glider port, along the coast, above black's beach, on tall cliffs above the ocean, is memorable, and if it weren't for the frequent flyovers of military jets and helicopters, would be powerfully peaceful and meditative: the long views, the mesmerizing patterns of incoming waves, blue sky, soaring birds, breeze, fantastically horrible erosion, surfers ascending like billy goats & strange men in parked cars.

  A San Diego visioning project... apparently they have events, but not an email list to notify people about the events (I missed hearing about a talk at SDSU until after it). It's a start! Here is their "web discussion board":http://www.signonsandiego.com/communities/envision/.
Link The Thoreau Institute remote url Link 2004-04-10 2004-04-10
  I like Thoreau and libertarianism / true liberalism but I hate cars & planes & helicopters & the external costs thereof & environments built for people who use them. This is a pro-car site. <blockquote>Inspired both by Henry David Thoreau's love of the natural world and his dislike of big government, the Thoreau Institute seeks ways to protect the environment without regulation, bureaucracy, or central control. The Institute was founded in 1975 under the name of Cascade Holistic Economic Consultants to help environmentalists and others understand and influence public land management. Since then, the Institute has worked as a consultant to or partner with every major national environmental group as well as numerous state and local groups. Between 1980 and 1998 the Institute also published a magazine, first titled Forest Planning and most recently called Different Drummer. Today the Institute distributes its work over the internet or in books such as The Vanishing Automobile and Other Urban Myths. The Institute's Board of Directors includes representatives of a variety of public land interest groups. The board hopes that it can break down the barriers between interest groups that have prevented the development of good public land policies.</blockquote>
