Here’s yet another cool city time lapse video, this one from Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Enjoy! (If the video doesn’t display, click here).
JSK on NBC
NBC News had a segment with Brian Williams that has drawn some fire from the urbanist crowd. I haven’t seen it, but I did see this portion of it in which Janette Sadik-Khan shows off Times Square and talks about what New York City is up to on the transport front. (There will be a short preroll add on this video. If the video doesn’t display for you, click here).
The Urban State of Mind: Meditations on the City is the first Urbanophile e-book, featuring provocative essays on the key issues facing our cities, including innovation, talent attraction and brain drain, global soft power, sustainability, economic development, and localism. Included are 28 carefully curated essays out of nearly 1,200 posts in the first seven years of the Urbanophile, plus 9 original pieces. It's great for anyone who cares about our cities.
Telestrian Data Terminal
A production of the Urbanophile, Telestrian is the fastest, easiest, and best way to access public data about cities and regions, with totally unique features like the ability to create thematic maps with no technical knowledge and easy to use place to place migration data. It's a great way to support the Urbanophile, but more importantly it can save you tons of time and deliver huge value and capabilities to you and your organization.
