    Happy Birthday Cyburbia

    Thank you Dan for keeping this going all these years.

    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)

    Happy Birthday Cyburbia! I don't know how I would fill my day without your wit and charm.

    I usually don't post in birthday threads, but this one is different.

    Happy Birthday you time-wasting, rant-inducing, career-mentoring, life-coaching son-of-a-bitch! I love you.

    Happy b'day 'burbia. Nice to have a place for the malcontents to gather and blow off steam. Plus, it gives newbies and wannabes a taste of what it is like in the trenches.

    Agree. I might have stayed in planning if I'd had a Cyburbia to vent and dull my senses back in the day. Instead, I had to consume mass quantities of alcohol and abuse my friends and family. Thanks Dan.

    I tip my enormous hat to you Dan, and to Cyburbia. Where would we be without it? I think you all know the answer to that question and it's too hideous a thought to even put in words.

    To Cyburbia! May She ever stand, inspire, bemuse and exhilarate as She has done faithfully these many years. (cue music....)

    If it weren't for Cyburbia, planners would have no respect from elected officials and the public and the profession would be on life-support. Oh wait. Never mind.


    Seriously, thanks to Dan and mods past and present for all your efforts.

    And without Cyburbia my path would not have crossed with ZG's and I would not have met a bunch of terrific people that happened to be Cyburbian planners. Good times.

    Happy Birthday! If we were all in the same place we would be hanging out tonight at some off the beaten path bar not talking about work!

    I didn't know Cyburbia was a Libra.

    Happy birthday, and here's to many more years! Thank you, Dan.
