A Case student has created a new front-end for RTA's Scheduling interface. I, for one, think it is a vast improvement over RTA's site. While I am most impressed by this user-friendly application of technology, I am also intrigued by the Django technology used to create this web app.

The bi/tricycle of the future, an enclosed recumbent known as a velomobile, has arrived in the USA in form of a space-age looking pod with trunk space as well as hybrid-electric technology that provides electric assist for steep hills and charges from your pedaling motion. The velomobile pictured is the GO-One . Velomobiles enables year round cycling, though it would seem smooth surfaces are preferred. While there are certainly advantages to a traditional upright bicycle, there are also numerous disadvantages. However, lets bask in this revolutionary transportation technology and we can discuss the downsides later....

I recall seeing this idea on RealNEO a while back. Check the following links for means by which we could potentially utilize our existing highway infrastructure to generate electricity.

In trying to keep up with what's happening in Cleveland regarding the development of green technologies, I've never been able to find anything that tracks it on a local basis.

While researching Lewis Thomas' essay collection entitled "Lives of a Cell", I came across the following article from July 2004 Technology Review.
Conincidence? I think not. Lewis Thomas laid the groundwork for much of James Lovelock's "Gaia" philososphy which theorisizes mother earth as massive superorganism seeking homeostasis.
The following article should prove interesting fodder for realNEO/Tribe folks as social networks provide holarchic transfer of knowledge, thereby enabling a knowledge economy or a spontaneous dodgeball game in the E. 5th alley...

The following story appears in the Summer 06 issue of Ohio Canal Corridor's newsletter .
Walworth Run – The Next Branch for the Towpath Trail?
It was back in 1996 when Ohio Canal Corridor led a planning charette in the ClarkMetro neighborhood that looked for a new vision for Train Avenue. The daylong event was one of a half-dozen plans that were hatched throughout the city. Others included a new park in Tremont where West 7 Street and West 10 Street merge along Railway Avenue and a park honoring surveyors in the Warehouse District between West 6 Street and West 9 Street/ just south of the Shoreway Ramp. The exercises culminated in a booklet titled: Green Spaces/People Places and was a component of the Lila Wallace/ Reader’s Digest funded park initiative under the direction of ParkWorks.
Ohio Canal Corridor immediately afterwards included Train Avenue in its annual RiverSweep program with the intent that this idea of a trail connection to the Towpath would not be lost, but rather that the neighborhood, through its represented Community Development Corporation, would awake to its potential. Thankfully, Clark-Metro has done just that. Last year, they teamed with a number of adjoining CDCs to submit a request to NOACA for funding under its Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative (TLCI) . Though they were unsuccessful, they regrouped and resubmitted again this year and were awarded $64,000 towards a $80,000 study that would explore a trail alignment and provide some estimated construction costs, identify benefits and spin-off development opportunities, and list potential funding sources. NPI contributed $12,000 towards the project and Ohio Canal Corridor (OECA) along with a number of stakeholder CDCs (Clark-Metro, Stockyards Development and Tremont West) have each added $1,000. As it stands, the planning will begin in 2007 and conclude in 2008. Public input will be required and sought. If you are interested in this project, please contact Abe Bruckman at Clark-Metro: 216-741-9500.
