This is fascinating. It is about shopping, but if you are a publisher or content creator, you can read it as a user study. I didn't realize 90% of Americans have mobile these days and more than half of them are smartphones.

Greetings from up the road in Delray. Don't forget to visit the museum, it's got a nice African mask collection.

Jason- I'm a journalism prof at Columbia College in Chicago. Would you tell me how long it took you to create this piece? I want my students to learn to do this kind of work, so knowing how long it takes you to do one of these would be very useful. 

Also, do you keep the references you used to come up with the charts and such in a database or something so it could be fact-checked if necessary? Thank you so much

Wonderful building. Check the history of the Bee, a black newspaper from Bronzeville. The library is intimate. Looks like it serves lots of people.

I was looking for a flower market in Chicago like the one in NYC. This place sells wholesale and retail, so I rode my bike there. The owner, Steve, is a flower expert, the flowers were of good quality, and his prices were okay. I'll go back again, it was worth the ride.
