The city lives in many online fora. A new one, Citytank, assembled and launched today by Seattle’s Dan Bertolet, is well worth noting.
Bertolet has assembled a wide range of local and national contributors to write in a focused fashion on the potential of cities, as a conceivable predicate for a true “think tank” on applied urban ideas.
The inaugural series, “C200” features a range of 200 word contributions—required reading for both ethereal and pragmatic “urbies” online.
Much of today’s urbanist dialogue features dueling claims to universal messages, which no one should own.
Through his creation, Bertolet has implicitly acknowledged this communal power of ideas, and has pledged to assemble the best.
