Most attention on flipping parking spaces into outdoor dining has been paid on cities, but I still can't get over what's happening in my hometown (just outside NYC). Lot of this innovation is happening in small towns and suburbia, too!

This is the case at Brockwell Park, my local. And each morning, maintenance crews somehow sweep it away like magic. But they're expecting cuts to kick in soon, too. So what happens then?

Disastrous start with 'herd immunity.' Huge lack of messaging throughout. And countless missteps. But will say: 'Eat Out to Help Out' — where central gov pays people to dine — is pretty inventive policy! Even if it's obvious more investment is needed.

I think the biggest change planning school has had on me is that I'm constantly yelling 'What is the X variable!!!' towards everything.

Untangling this coronavirus conundrum: how is it that Spain, where mask compliance is nearly 100%, is seeing over a thousand daily cases now, and England, where mask compliance is >50%, is below 50? Lack of testing? Indoor dining culture? An unlucky outbreak? I'm stumped.

I've had a chat with the minister for cycling (and other transport things), Chris Heaton-Harris, about whether the govt's new plans for walking and cycling can actually make more people feel safe to get on their bikes.

Guess the fines have gone out. Noticed a pretty dramatic change on today - big drop in traffic, and wild difference in the natural soundscape of the road. Hear mostly footfall, cyclists, etc.

Tried to cycle Quietway 7 tonight. Then found out midway up numerous hills it’s no longer marked. Then ended up at the highest point above sea level in London. Hello Crystal Palace!

Don’t know who I have to say this to in 2020, but writing the word “junkies” for those with substance abuse issues is journalistic malpractice.

Transcribing an interview I did in March at a loud coffeeshop, and replaying the *clings* and *clangs* of background noise and conversation just to feel something again.
