We Now Return to Our Regular Programming, Already in Progress

7_23_09_nyc.jpgThis is what NYC looked like when I was there. In July! Dudes, rain is soooo January.

LA Streetsblog will resume it’s normal publishing schedule today and that means tweeting today’s Metro Board Meeting at http://twitter.com/lastreetsblog.  For all those that suggested that I get a way to view the twitter feed on this site, it’s coming.  I waited until I got to New York to ask for it so it’s behind a couple other projects on the TOPP to do list, but it is coming and we did hear your suggestions.

Starting next week, our twitter feed will start tweeting any content unique to LA Streetsblog and some other good stuff from around the Internet.

In February of this year, a […]

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 […]

Big Blue Bus Still Behind The Curve On Digital Tools

|
One game changing advancement to help users navigate public transit websites is the proliferation of smart phones, apps, and map services catering to public transit. While we shouldn’t assume everyone has access to these tools, it is foolish to not embrace the opportunities these new tools make possible. However, Big Blue Bus remains behind with […]
