Thread: Greetings from Boston-

    Greetings from Boston-

    Greetings from Boston- or for those around here, greetings from East Cambridge. I'm relatively new to planning as a field of interest, and looking into Grad programs for '07. I've been keeping up on my Cyburbia reading and it's been a big help. Many thanks to those who keep me thinking!

    Welcome from the Hoosier State in the Central Time Zone.

    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?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from Chicagoland!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Welcome to the ship

    hello from Sunny California.

    UC Berkeley has a great program. I've also heard good things about Chapel Hill...

    Good luck!

    Welcome. I used to live in East Cambridge in an old converted button factory that's now loft apartments. There are some cool projects in that area.
