on urban diaries: a ‘seeing the better city’ prequel

Andy Boenau (@boenau) is a Richmond, Virginia planner who manages a go-to podcast about human-scale urban solutions.  His “on-air” questions are always designed to invoke practical hints and examples for listeners, and I track his topics and guests on a regular basis.  This week, I was both flattered and pleased to be featured, as we discussd a common passion, the proactive use of urban photography today.

Andy’s questions focused on the practical side of my upcoming book, Seeing the Better City. He emphasized the book’s “obervation for more than observations’s sake” approach, and he probed the elements of the “urban diary tool” and the many ways it might be used by city-dwellers today.
