I am new at this instance: I'm an architect and PhD on social sciences who studies the commodifications between , and in the context of the Urban Studies and I am now pursuing a more data-scientist approach. I've been using for some years and I am now starting with

I'm looking for people with similar research interests or who can help me improving my skills.

Thanks @cxli for kindly introducing me to this nice ritual.

The impacts for the global economy of such a "small" act like that are still resonating a week later 's obstruction. And growing.

I'll leave the rest of the results and conclusions to you, as the text is better developed (and deals with more things that don't fit here): acme-journal.org/index.php/acm (unfortunately, only in Spanish)

Some important findings from the text are:
1) participatory ≠ common
2) theory ≈ praxis
3) the precariousness (economic, but also legal) of the casts doubt on the 3rd way, hindering its capacity for real transformation.

Finally, we conducted a case study analysis in that allows us to contrast abstract discourses with effective practices. Specifically, we focus on land ownership and access, institutionalisation and collaboration with public and private entities.

We then set out the legal-political logics behind the terms "private", "public" and "common". Each one with different implications that significantly condition the possibilities and capacities of participatory and communal practices.

Today, the DfT has released a report looking at what convinces people to stop driving and use public transport or active travel instead.

One of the findings is that hearing stories from people who have made the switch helps folks switch themselves.

One thing we know for SURE — building & widening highways ALWAYS succeeds in helping sell more cars, gas & suburban sprawl; burning more public budgets; & increasing GHG emissions. So if THOSE are your goals, it’s the perfect thing to do.

Just don’t expect it to reduce traffic.
