This site is an exploration of “What is” of urban life. Collections of people in urban areas is becoming more common place. In 1800 only 3% of the world’s population lived in cities. In 2014 it is closer to 54%. As the human race becomes more dense, we are forced to contemplate each other more. We need to reflect on our approachs to living together because it is a really important challenge for the future. So, I’ll be putting out my observations, research and concepts together. I think this is the key to decoding this most extraordinary of journeys. I will rotate through these topics on a weekly basis: DIVERSITY, CREATIVITY, ECONOMICS, SOCIAL JUSTICE and BIKES.
I will gladly accept contributions because the way I see it, we, the human race, are a work in progress and to truly move forward, it’s crucial to include a lot of different voices. I’ve heard profound observations on life from a lot of people who are generally ignored in society. In my years as a bike messenger, I found that wisdom can come from just about anywhere.
