Hey Folks, Damien’s wife is having (or just had) a baby. That means Streetsblog Los Angeles is going to have a somewhat erratic publishing schedule for the next few weeks.

A Quick Note on the LA Streetsblog Twitter Feed

As many of you suggested last month, we’ve created a view of the Los Angeles Streetsblog twitter feed.  This way when I’m "live tweeting" an event, you don’t have to open a separate page. But I’d like the twitter feed to be about more than just promoting Streetsblog and providing an easy way to do […]
