    Hello from Pittsburgh

    It appears cyburbia has gained quite a few new members over the past few days - including many from Ohio. Has there been a cyburbia "census" tallying geographic locations of members? I was born and raised in SW Ohio (Dayton) but have been migrating along I-70 over the past 13 years or so. I look forward to reading ideas from and discussing ideas with other urban-thinking folks.

    Cheers,
    Zach

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Thanks for the link. It appeared to be undated. With what seems to be a stream of recently registered users, perhaps a new census should be conducted; or, should we wait until 2010?

    Welcome from NW Ohio. This part of Ohio is home to tall (and withering dry) corn stalks, good growing dirt (we used to be a swamp), and nowhere near the congestion you will see in a place like Pittsburgh, PA.

    OTHO, we have a sizeable contingent of Steeler fans.....this Bear included. If you place your ear on the PA Turnpike you will hear me shouting from 235 miles away.

    Enjoy your stay in our fair community, Cyburbia.

    Welcome.

    I heard a rumor that urban planners in your neck of the woods were real jerks.
