Here are some recent Edmonton blog posts that I was glad I read:
Sarah Chan posted a lovely and thorough summary of Poppy Barley’s recent design event on Girls and Bicycles. (Photo by Sarah Chan.)
- Glenn Kubish eloquently calls for a completely different way of thinking about transportation, in light of the death of another cyclist.
- Tanis Miller has another powerful post, this time about an unexpected and painful reconnection.
- The Local Good has had a lot of good stuff this week, including this piece by David Shepherd on an effort to save monarch butterflies by planting milkweed.
- Photographer Chris Anderson invites us to Ayan and Ibrahim’s beautiful wedding at the Hotel Macdonald and reception at the Italian Cultural Centre.
- The Infill Development Edmonton Association (IDEA) has a useful Q&A on what has to be overcome to get meaningful infill in mature neighbourhoods.
- The Unknown Studio has a delightful chat with Owen Brierley about the projection mapping that makes a car chase come alive on the Citadel stage in Make Mine Love.
That’s just a small sample of what has caught my eye in the past week. Find many more local blog posts on ShareEdmonton.
I’ve also started a magazine of my favourites on Flipboard. You can follow it, if you like that sort of thing.
(Posting this slightly earlier than usual so it’s up by the time I’m on BT Edmonton with Mack Male on Monday around 6:45 a.m. Whoa, that’s early.)
(UPDATE: Here’s the clip of me and Mack chatting on Breakfast Television.)
