I’ll be leaving in a few minutes to head to Burning Man and won’t be back for a week, but you won’t be left without blog posts from me. At Burning Man, I’m always comparing the Black Rock City to Oakland – I even wrote a blog post comparing the two cities. So I thought it would be appropriate to re-post four posts from 2007 and 2008 comparing Oakland’s urban space to that of Los Angeles, DC, Berkeley, and San Diego.
I hope you enjoy the posts. Feel free to comment, but if you’ve never commented here before, your comments won’t be posted until next week when I return.
Also, don’t forget about the Oakland Airport Connector contest. There’s $400 on the line here, and while we’ve received several haiku entries, Gene from Our Oakland is the only one who’s submitted image entries. So get your creative juices flowing and send in your entries by September 12th.
