Mark Lamster says it's time for Dallas to admit there's a problem, which means a new development paradigm. One that is not dependent on the continual construction of highways nobody wants to pay for, to facilitate ever longer commutes that are in themselves cost inefficient.
Here\'s Dallas in a nutshell for you. Talk to most anybody who spends time downtown and they\'ll tell you there are too many surface parking lots and garages, and that…

He seems to think that none of it makes any sense. Which of course is entirely true.

We are not vehicles. We are not surrounded by tons of steel and airbags, nor do we have an engine capable of reaching 100 mph. 

If anything, we have one measly little helmet and maybe if we are lucky a stripe of paint to separate and protect us from motorists.

In what world does it make sense that we share the road with vehicles if we can not even reach the speed limit of said road? We only slow down traffic, cause an inconvenience for people who are already under stress, endangering ourselves in the process. Now I'm not speaking of residential roads and if you're into riding in Lycra along the country backroads then more power to ya. I'm talking about cycling in urban areas along medium to high traffic thoroughfares.

Cyclists are the third wheel. Neither pedestrian nor motorists. We deserve and require our own space. Not paint, but curbs and physical barriers. Not everywhere. Just where it makes sense. Because clearly what we have now doesn't...

It's pretty awesome. I needed something that would allow me to access my Google Play music like I could iTunes on AppleTV. This works perfectly. Also I really like the ease of use. It's as easy as using airplay but better quality. Excited to see more apps integrate Chromecast capabilities. Particularly HBO...

Already ordered mine. This with Play Music All Access should be a good combo.

Google v. Flickr: the best place to store your photos http://ow.ly/mQ0SG
For a year or two in the early aughts, Flickr was every photographer’s favorite corner of the Internet. Not only was it the friendliest, prettiest, most useful and accessible place to store your images; it was also a thriving community. Flickr’s inventors understood what its users wanted, and its users...
