Greetings from Muncie, Indiana! I've lurked on and off for the past few years and decided to join Cyburbia in an attempt to become more active in the urban planning and design professions. I graduated with an MURP from Ball State University a couple of years ago and am currently working in higher education in a university department that interfaces a bit with urban planning. Lately, I have been considering ways to get back into planning and/or design, as opposed to higher ed, and have gained a lot of insight just by reading posts by Cyburbia members over the past few days. At the moment, I'm more interested in urban design, rather than planning, but I believe that both areas are essential to the future development of our cities. I look forward to learning from other Cyburbia members and contributing when I can!
