I received this today:
As a leader in , I thought you would like to know about Strong Cities, Strong Communities Challenge Las Vegas - an international competition developed and funded by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration (EDA).

Any takers? I thought it might be fun to try to put together a Cyburbia team to take on the challenge.
