The Null Device
Blog discovery of the day: The Infrastructurist
, which focuses on issues such as transport and urban planning, from a largely, though not entirely, US-centric point of view, and has some interesting stories. Such as a LA Times piece on the Dubai model of urbanism
, an Economist piece on the Obama administration's US$500bn transport bill
(which includes 50 billion for high-speed rail
), a Google Maps gallery of six intriguingly shaped communities
, a piece on what to do when neo-Nazis decide to sponsor a US highway
(the answer: rename it after a civil rights leader), and a gallery of grand railway stations in America, all now long-since demolished
