Friday Five: What I've been reading

Five posts I’ve found interesting over the past seven days:

  • The Audacity of Doing Nothing. Flash mobs have become increasingly popular over the past few years. Their popularity poses a paradox, however. When once people gathered in the streets in celebration or protest, today people are gathering for no particular reason. This post asks: now that we know that kids can still gather, why can’t it be for positive change?
  • Jane’s Walk Phoenix: A blatant plug for my other site that I maintain for an event that is returning to Phoenix on May 1, 2010. I’ll be posting details on the walk  (and related events) as the become available In the meantime, there is a lot of urban goodness including a growing list of Jane Jacobs ideas and commentary.
