Are You Visiting Streetsblog Lite? If Not…

Here’s what you missed in the past couple of days:

If you miss the “old” L.A. Streetsblog which regularly featured funny picures and short videos, those types of posts can be found everyday on Streetsblog Lite.  But we mean for Streetsblog Lite to be a more user-driven experience, and submitting pictures, videos, graphs and essays is just a click away.

And for any keen readers who noticed a one-day gap in our Liter coverage yesterday, Veronica and I were working on a special project we’ll unveil on Monday.  But we’ll post a hint on Streetsblog Lite later today.

    I didn’t do an in-depth look at the “journey to work” map of England, but the percentage of Britons driving to work (71%) in the land of big red buses, railways going many places and two different flavors of subway trains in London was rather surprising.  Not sure how much “petrol” costs, but it must be around a US equivalent of $7 or $8 a gallon by now.

Getting Your Fix…

I spent some time doing an in-depth checkout of the website and blog at Bicycle Fixation, an LA bike advocacy website and found some pretty cool interactive features. They have their own shop and report on bike news and opinion pieces on the website. But, my favorite features are the interactive ones. A quick look […]
