TED Talks have become an internet staple in the last few years. That big orange T represents an imminent encounter with a brainy, technology-infused optimism that is quite seductive at times. James Howard Kunstler’s memorable TED rant has been a suburban-poverty.com favourite for a decade now.
So it’s great to see the TEDsters adopt walking as a major theme for an upcoming conference. In our reality the city that is easier to get around in is also easier on the eyes and makes economic sense for workers and businesses alike. The walkable city list on this TED Blog page is a little touristy, but TED is well on the right path with this interest in walkability.
