This marks a rare decision point in a project that has been moving forward very ...

Welcome to the week. Here are the most notable items BikePortland editors and readers came across in the past seven days… Scrap it already! You know we’ve reached a new level of scrutiny on the oft-maligned federal Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices when academics eviscerate it in the Harvard Law Review and say the almighty manual, “biases transportation behavior in dangerous and inequitable ways”. Highway myth-busting: David Zipper is at it again with a cover story in the Washington...

BikePortland Podcast: Journalist Ryan Packer on the I-5 Bridge Replacement Project

In this episode I spoke to Ryan Packer, a journalist based in Seattle who covers transportation issues for The Urbanist. Their name might sound familiar, because Ryan is also BikePortland’s special correspondent on the Interstate Bridge Replacement Project, or what we often refer to around here as Columbia River Crossing 2.0. Ryan recently visited Portland, so I thought it’d be fun to sit down, talk a little shop about what it’s like to be an advocacy journalist in the transportation space, ...

Saudi-Led Takeover Of Newcastle United Has Been Completed

How do we attribute value to an NFT?

How do we attribute value to an NFT? We can analyze this question from a number of perspectives. To start, we could draw a line of demarcation between categories of possessions that exist physically and those that exist intangibly. One intuitively understands how to value tangible things. This is often tied to the item’s usefulness. For example, a car has value because it transports. A knife is useful for cutting. A pen enables writing. We move out one level of abstraction and see that pieces of...

Dreaming of a truly public bike system like the one I used in Paris

The author riding a Velib’ bike in Paris in 2013.(Photos: Maritza Arango). This is how I navigated my student in Paris years being a full-time bike and public transport commuter without having my own bike and without draining my student bank account. When I was in school I could get around the city without using a car or a bus. The later the night gets, the drunker the people are on those buses. Another reason to use the bike share system and avoid the cold and creepy bus station. The ...
