Elsewhere: Week of April 26, 2021
Elsewhere is a series of interesting things I came across during the week, published every Sunday.
- “A motorist might take issue with losing parking space or driving privileges on certain arteries across the city, but they would also gain a vibrant, more engaged streetscape (with less than five minutes added to their commute). When we make sidewalks safer for the elderly in the winter, they become safer for everyone else, including parents with strollers or people in wheelchairs.” — When Cities Are Built for White Men
- “Three Stars By Default” feels like a very reasonable default for approaching everything, balancing cynicism against fandom.
- It's not just here — the flu has virtually disappeared worldwide due to the measures put in place to contain COVID-19.
- This Twitter thread holds some fascinating learnings from having kept a gratitude journal for nearly three years.
