Friday 5: Urban Miscellany from Sept 18th-24th

Here’s my weekly urbanist reading list:

  • Social Networking for Safer Cycling: Biking through city streets as a lone cyclist is far different from biking among a pack of fellow commuters. An organized bike pool can help riders navigate streets, meet other cyclists and feel safer. (The City Fix)
  • Cities as Interaction Machines: The everyday nature of interacting with strangers is a byproduct of urbanization, which has created a culture of dense populations with sparse interconnections. That density and sparseness of connections itself is part of what defines ‘the urban.’ (The Atlantic)
