Because everybody cares about my Tumblelog, an announcement: I’ve just spent a bunch of time redesigning my Tumblelog.
Because everybody cares about me, there’s more about me in it. And there’s a list of stuff I’ve “liked”. And you can finally link to individual posts if you want to see Tumblr stuff like notes and tags. It’s almost like a real blog!
One way it’s not like a real blog: I didn’t get around to adding comments. So if you’re moved to say something about the new design, well, you’ll just have to say it out loud, in your room, to your computer. Maybe next time.
(Credit where it’s due: I wish! I can’t find the theme I started with, but that’s where the big-and-black-on-white look came from.)

“Smart growth” is often perceived as an idea about and for cities. The Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy has a neat alternative in LandOf.org: a matrix of ten smart growth principles crossed with six development types (from urban to rural), with case studies applying each to each.
So Lanesboro (pop. 788) serves as a case study of multimodal transportation in a rural area, accessible by car, bike, and canoe. Minneapolis’s Central Riverfront demonstrates the goal of walkable neighborhoods in central cities. And so on.
They’re still working on filling in the grid - a lot of pages have text that translates as “got any ideas?” But it’s a fun browse already.
