Why protected bike lanes are more valuable than parking spaces

The 9th Avenue pilot.

'The parking protected lane'

retail sales went up 49%.

Needs to be reliable.

Count how many families use the.

Naturally I would argue that you don't have to give up space with elevated systems. I'm also voting to provide shelter to.

Why Isn't Cycling Normal in London?

A very eloquent and informative review of cycling in London. I think it makes every argument that we have made on the blog. My take-home notes on this are.

  1. We need to put cycle routes in where they are needed. 
    1. So we need tools to figure out where cycling is needed. 
    2. The failure of the Norman Foster scheme and Stevenage is that it's taking advantage whats avaiable not what is nessassasry. 
  2. I'm not sure about the push argument. 
    1. Naturally, with systems like the Shweeb ( cycle monorail) you can introduce huge capacity  where you need it. 
Well worth watching - Enjoy.

Things we need words for.

One of the things that is brought up n in this YouTube video is the idea that people have become part of the algorithm. We don't really have methods in Computer science or human computer interaction which really looks at the ecology of people and technology. As mentioned in the video below at an individual basis there isn't really a problem it's only when you look at the larger statistical process that there is an effect at the larger level. In human computer interaction we don't really seem to have systems processes and mechanisms which can understand the human-Technology process such that we can make intelligent design decisions ( which includes the decision not to build something ).

As far as I know we don't really have a word where are we consider algorithms where human beings are part of the system forming a loop. We do know that feedback systems are incredibly nonlinear I'm frequently non-stable. This clearly clearly formed an area in Future research.
