Lines for crossing, points of discussion

Saturday, September 16th, 2006

My wiki finally benefitted from a modicum of attention, albeit administered in such sporadic bursts as to go almost unnoticed. As I haphazardly noted on September 9, I added an entry called Addendum to Victoria History in a Nutshell: Victoria’s Future?, which was a response to a prior essay (Victoria History in a nutshell, by […]

Wiki post added

Wednesday, September 6th, 2006

I just added a subpage on my wiki that spins out my thoughts on the economic possibilities for Victoria — if only we had more people… Still haven’t done some of the other “housekeeping,” though! My bad…

“Windy place(s)” in cyberspace(s)

Friday, August 25th, 2006

I started a private blog recently, which doesn’t exactly account for my absence(s) here, but it means that I now have three virtual spaces that I can neglect: this blog, my new one, and my wiki. Sigh. “Sigh” — sounds almost like wind, doesn’t it? Well, I did finally get around to putting a new […]

Style Matters: “grump and frump” or “open and kinetic”?

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2006

A few days ago I finished reading Cosmopolis by Stephen Toulmin. It took me a long time to finish, and I’m still not sure that I’ve entirely comprehended it. The title gives an indication of its vastness, though, and helps explain why I might have difficulties distilling its insights into a mere gloss. I can’t […]

Mr. Gumby writes a letter to the editor

Tuesday, August 1st, 2006

Many things have conspired to keep me from composing or posting or composting, whether here at the blog or at my Victoria City Style Council wiki, hence no updates to report on the wiki just now. But the local papers did publish a couple of my letters-to-the-editors, which was “a good thing,” I suppose, although […]

Updates galorific

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

I have a number of updates on my wiki to report. I sent two additional emails to the consultant at Stantec, and posted them under the Greens promote link as subpages here and here. In each case, I’m happy to report, I received a friendly email confirming my input, which did put a human face […]

My “Victoria City Style Council” wiki

Monday, July 17th, 2006

As I already mentioned on this blog, some time ago I started a wiki about Victoria, BC, called Victoria City Style Council. A small number of people have made a contribution or two, but to date it’s still very much my little project. The other day it occured to me that I could use this […]

A Wiki

Wednesday, June 21st, 2006

I just started a wiki — my first ever. I don’t know whether I will continue it, or whether it will fade away, but it’s focussed on Victoria, BC (where I live), specifically its urban development aspects. Blame WetPaint — couldn’t resist starting this up. I’m actually trying to write something marginally serious about architecture […]
