Some Edmonton blog posts I thought deserved your attention:
Several people had something to say about the scaling back of the plans for the Blatchford development on the site of the former City Centre Airport (Photo courtesy of the City of Edmonton):
- The comments on Mayor Don Iveson’s followup post on the decision are thoughtful and worth reading.
- Mack Male has a positive take on the decision, while raising concerns about how it was handled and communicated.
- Zoe Todd strongly disagrees with the decision (and many decisions leading up to it, including closing the airport), and calls for a more transparent process.
Sounds like public consultations in Edmonton could use some improvement. Matt Dance makes eloquent points on that very issue in Spacing Edmonton.
So, that was heavy. Some lighter fare:
- Adam Rozenhart has been experimenting with YouTube, and he’s learned some useful stuff so far.
- Maybe he could pick up some pointers from the recent #yegfilm meetup on what works on YouTube.
- The Mercer Super Party looked like a good time. Sharon Yeo has a recap, and Edmonton NextGen has a whole lot of pictures.
- Wanye Gretz pays tribute to Brian Sutherby, the new editor-in-chief of the Nation Network, then massively (but entertainingly) chirps him over the fate of Shawn Horcoff.
That’s a small sample of what has caught my eye in the past week. Find many more posts on ShareEdmonton.
