    NYT Sunday Magazine - Big Ideas Issue

    Several of the Big Ideas might be of interest -

    The Aerotropolis -
    Traditionally, of course, airports have served cities, but in the past few years airports have started to become cities unto themselves, giving rise to a new urban form....

    Big Urbanism -
    .... cities are once again planning with grandiosity,...
    This year witnessed the return of what you might call big urbanism, with large-scale redevelopment projects sprouting nationwide.

    The Humane Flophouse -
    .... this lowliest of urban dwellings may in fact be part of the solution to America’s homeless problem.

    Reverse Graffiti -
    .... selectively scrubs dirty, derelict city property (tunnel walls, sidewalks) so that words and images are formed by the cleaned bits.

    These were just a few of the 74 articles that make up this iBig Ideas Issue.
    Are these examples just limited to that place(s) mentioned or will we see some of them spread out ?

    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)
