    Hello from Boston!

    Greetings all! I'm working as a sustainability/LEED coordinator for MIT. I'm a recent graduate and looking into Sustainable Urban Planning Masters programs. If anyone has any advice, I'm open to it!

    Greetings from the Florida panhandle.

    Julia, with all the twisted minds of the single male Cyburbians, you might not want to use the phrase "...I'm open to it" very often--if ever again. You know these guys are nerd planners, right?

    Hello, from Dallas, 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 downeast Maine - I am old friends with one of your professors at MIT - and don't pay attention to RJ, he can find innuendo in anything!

    Wow

    What a breadth of replies! Ha. Thanks for the welcome- I look forward to getting to know the information available on here. Can anyone direct me to any resources- planning, LEED, green design sorts of activity in Cambridge/Boston? I'm looking for lower key groups, brainstorms, get-togethers... anything like that around? Let me know! Thanks!

    (no innuendo available, right?)

    Look up the Green Roundtable or the USBGC affiliate group in Boston.

    Welcome from the Hoosier State, along the Ohio River.

    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)
