Catie Gould. This post is by our activism co-editor Catie Gould, a very busy local transportation activist who has a full-time job on the side. —— Does the New Year have you hoping to get more done? Certainly the times demand a lot of us.

THE OLD BRIDGE AND THE V. Speedy Siegl Racing’s Ducati 900SS Racer

Written by Martin Hodgson For a brief but magical time in music history the Seattle Sound dominated the airwaves and shaped a generation. Now another of the cities institutions has crumbled and gone, the equally mystical and murky Alaskan Way Viaduct. But now a new creative force is flourishing in the North West and it’s the music of classic air-cooled engines that permeates the side streets and freeways. Part of that revival is Speedy Siegl Racing and they snuck into the earthquake damaged V...

The Best Work I Saw at the Medium Festival of Photography: Part 2

  I never set out to be an opinion columnist. It’s true. Hell, before 2008, if you’d told me I’d become a professional blogger, much less do the job for nearly 9 years, I’d have taken you for a crazy person.

It’s funny, reading the papers, following the discussions about whether the 10 year bull market has finally turned bear. Will the stock market’s tumbl...
