Walk [Your City] began when a few, civic-minded friends in Raleigh, NC posted a network of signs around town that gave walking directions to cool, local spots. It was a simple way to help citizens navigate their city on foot, but (surprise!) it resonated worldwide. Now, with hundreds of folks eager to adopt the movement, the team is working to create an open-source, web tool that will allow anyone to make, print, and post their very own neighborhood walking signs. See you on the sidewalks — see them as our Project of the Day.

From their site:
“Ore.e Ref. is challenging designers of the world to NOT design chairs for the rest of the year. It’s that simple.
We believe that the world already has enough chairs. Designing new ones only takes time away from renovating the ones we already have. Consider this the ultimate challenge for you to rethink how sustainable design should be manifested. If not that… Then think about the amount of time you’ll save when you don’t have to design chairs for the rest of the year.”
nice. ‘suffering bastard’ in the series turned out well too.

“…Don’t let anyone tell you what a story is, what it needs to include. As an experiment, write a non-story. It will have a chance of being different….
…The point is: it’s very important that what you do is specific to the medium in which you’re doing it, and that you utilise what is specific about that medium to do the work. And if you can’t think about why it should be done this way, then it doesn’t need to be done.”
