- Sadik-Khan Packs the House, Then Brings It Down – Summary of NYC DoT Commissioner, Janette Sadik-Khan's talk at Occidental College: change is easy, just start small and cheap and fast. I sure hope she's meeting with LA's DoT too!
- Open 311 – An open platform with an API for developing municipal service issue tracking applications, being developed by San Francisco, and deployed globally.
- The Living Building Challenge – A fairly exhaustive and stringent set of requirements for sustainable development. No such developments have yet been completed. This should really be organized as an xprize type contest…
- LA Bike Map – Another iteration of the Bikewise idea… this time using information from the LAPD archives.
- Welcome to BikeAtlas – A collaborative and yet proprietary attempt to map out bike routes in SoCal. Why LACBC, why?!?
- United States Department of Transportation Policy Statement on Bicycle and Pedestrian Accommodation Regulations and Recommendations – Bicycle and Pedestrian Guidance – FHWA – Suggestions from the US DoT on bike and pedestrian policies for smaller jurisdictions. Would be great if they'd do something like, say, require that federal transportation dollars be spent proportionally to modeshare, as Boulder decided to do.
