A lot of Edmonton blog posts struck me this week. Here’s a few:
How can you not want to read Lisa A. Zieminek’s Button Soup guest post on vermicomposting after seeing this? Seriously, do it.
- Poet laureate Mary Pinkoski’s Genius Loci, shared on the Edmonton Arts Council blog, rings with truth and beauty.
- On the Enterprise Edmonton blog, Paul Reid adds some data analysis and visualization to the current discussion of infill in mature neighbourhoods. And Jamie Post offers a close reading of the draft Infill Action Plan as an active member of a mature community.
- Still on city planning and urban design (because I’m a bit of a nerd that way), I recommend Mayor Don Iveson’s post on the Blatchford development, and Paul Giang’s Spacing Edmonton piece on how to think about the Milner library.
- Derek Zona asks a pertinent question on Copper and Blue: Why haven’t you quit the Oilers? There are many great answers in the comments, and another well-put response by Sunil Agnihotri on The SuperFan.
- Dana DiTomaso entertainingly makes the case against impressions as a useful metric in digital marketing, on the Kick Point blog.
- And Natasha Chiam explores how we think about what women wear on The Stay-at-Home Feminist. (Related: Here’s Radical Citizen Media’s coverage of the Edmonton SlutWalk.)
That’s a small sample of what has caught my eye in the past week. Find many more posts on ShareEdmonton.
