long time

It's been nearly a month since my last post. I wonder if anyone is still with me. My apologies to the lack of responses to your comments. Work has gotten far too hectic lately, and it doesn't look like there will be any let up soon. The upside is there are exciting developments on the horizon.

My unintended dormancy made me think of all some of my favorite blogs/bloggers that have gone silent:

  1. Willy Priles/A Nagueño in the Blogosphere -most recent post, January 28, 2008
  2. Dr. Gauden Galea/Only Connect (link is dead blog.slidebay.com)
  3. Uzi|My Everyday Manila - (domain is dead www.everdisturbed.com)
  4. Lorimer/Manila, My Manila - most recent post, November 26, 2007
  5. Edwin Lacierda/San Juan Gossip Mills Outlet - most recent post, November 13, 2007
Do you have any favorite blogs that have gone silent?

Nancy Kete's speech at the World Conference on the Development of Cities in Porto Alegre, Brazil on February 16th, 2008.

This is a must, must see video for any would be urbanist and for all environmentalists. Listen closely to her calls for visionary urban leaders and how our cities can save the world.

Military strategists are fond of saying "Amateurs talk of strategy. The Pros talk about logistics."

If we are to succeed, we have to look beyond our immediate problems and begin to envision how we will create sustainable cities that will compete in this century and the next.
