100 Abandoned Houses in Detroit

Portals and KM

Here is a photo project covering 100 Abandoned Houses in Detroit. 100 seemed like a lot, although the number of abandoned houses in Detroit is more like 12,000. Encompassing an area of over 138 square miles, Detroit has enough room to hold the land mass of San Francisco, Boston, and Manhattan Island, yet the population has fallen from close to 2 million citizens, to most likely less than 800,000.

Detroit Restaurants: A Local’s Favorites - 2009

Portals and KM

Here is more on Detroit restaurants from Stan Garfield. He writes that MAGIC JOHNSON - is the acronym for remembering the good categories of restaurants in Detroit. Looks good to me. I loved the photo links at the bottom. Magic grew up not too far away in the Lansing MI area and played college ball there at Michigan State. Even though the Celts Beat LA last year we can honor his greatness. After all the Pistons did it also with team work. Mexican Taqueria Mi Pueblo , Azteca's.

He used to live in the Detroit area and knows its eating places quite well. I spent much time working in Detroit in the 1980s but I found out from Stan that many of the places I liked then are gone now so I greatly appreciate getting this update. Stan provides this list of Detroit's best restaurants today. Stan said that Detroit's best are ethnic or blue collar places. Here is Stan’s best of Detroit. 7278 Dix Rd, Detroit, MI 48209, Phone: (313) 841-3315.

How to get smart – the long answer

Chris Corrigan

She was working in Detroit on some community development issues with a number of activists and others. Their focus was on empowering community development and social action and creating the kinds of citizen based responses that Detroit needs, and she was invited to come and host a circle. My friend Ginny Belden-Charles told me a great story today.

Apparently there are some 20,000 abandoned houses in Detroit. 'In the Spring we will be working with Detroit based neighborhood organizations to deconstruct the house and clear the property, and then donating the property to one of many urban farming groups in Detroit.'

Detroit tomorrow. Toronto has been a lot of fun so far - not least because it is a long weekend here (Victoria day?) Sunday involved doging the rain and seeing Bonde Do Role and The Death Set. Monday was spent having lunch with Dave Pollard and then an afternoon with Sean Howard and Eli McIlveen. The evening ended with me in an Irish bar somewhere on College Street having lost the power of speech. At that point, I thought it wise to go home.

Some Interesting Twitter Apps from New York Times

Portals and KM

At Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital, the docs twittered throughout an operation to remove a brain tumor from a 47-year-old man. The New York Times published an article, Putting Twitter’s World to Use , that had some interesting applications. For example, Corey Menscher, grad student at New York University, developed Kickbee, an elastic band with vibration sensors that his pregnant wife wore to alert Twitter each time baby kicked: “I kicked Mommy at 08:52 PM on Fri, Jan 2!”

More and more urbanized places, like New Orleans and Detroit and the ‘brownfield’ zones everywhere, are simply being abandoned like giant toxic dump sites because the cost of making them work after a crisis is higher than the cost of just rebuilding somewhere, anywhere else.

Collaboration vs sharing

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Sunday, October 14, 2007 Collaboration vs sharing James Robertson talks about collaboration tools as anti-knowledge sharing. If I understand JR correctly, his point is that collaboration tools are great for specific teams. However each team works in its own context and this leads to the creation of silos which prevents cross-organisational leveraging of this material. He also notes that this cannot be solved simply by the implementation of a search tool. I agree with him.
