Odds and Ends 6


SEATTLETRANSITBLOG.COM -- Nodes and Places - a look at why you'd design the space around transit spaces differently based on where they are. (Though I'd still like to see all transit stops be both, personally.)


LIFEHACKER.COM -- Store your board games by displaying them as art - clever idea. Though seems like you'd be spending a lot on custom framing and still need a place to store all the pieces. Still, could look kinda cool in a game room.


BOSTON.COM -- If a picture is worth 1,000 words, this is the site.

SEATTLETRANSITBLOG.COM -- A great piece on addressing bus violence in Seattle with advice for everyone. Well, except the losers perpetuating the violence.

MSNBC.COM -- American to charge $15 for 5 minutes' use of bathroom - No, not really. But when they do, you saw it here first.


DAILYTELEGRAPH.CO.UK -- Twins learn of their brother's death via Facebook before the police have a chance to notify them. On their birthday.


ORPHANROAD.COM -- Some early April Fools suggestions for the Link "Next Stop" signs


MASHABLE.COM -- Pranksters attach a GPS device to a Google Street car
