Carbon Trace Re-Launch Begins 15 April

Several things have been keeping me busy this winter. I’m right in the middle of doing an academic case study examining a successful civic journalism project. I have also been re-working all of my classes — something that is regularly necessary, especially as I notice generational changes in students. Further, I have been busy re-thinking Carbon Trace in light of many developments in my life, including moving toward a national focus in bicycle advocacy and a desire to place that advocacy in a broader context.

Today I announce the re-launch of Carbon Trace set for 15 April. The focus of this blog will change. Bicycling will remain an important topic within a broader context of urban life — especially in small to mid-sized cities.

Carbon Trace will become a driving force in a book project that I will announce later this summer.

Some changes you will see soon:

  1. I will cut back on many of the bicycling links on the sidebar and add others that fit the new context.
  2. More specific reporting of urban issues.
  3. More multimedia features.
  4. More personal narratives (from various sources) about urban life.

The bicycling stuff isn’t going away. Again, it will simply be wrapped in a bigger context.

A special plea to all my long-time readers: I will need your help with my book project. Crowd sourcing will be playing an important role. As I reveal the nature of the project, please pick up any ball that looks interesting to you and run with it :-)

[As for Rhetorica: I will announce the re-launch of that blog later this spring. Its new project will be related. There is, after all, a rhetoric to everything :-) ]
