According to Tom Angotti New York City’s plan to launch the largest bikeshare program in the country will seek to rectify the
“long-neglected issues of transportation justice.”
Tom Angotti is Director of the Hunter College Center for Community Planning and Development (AKA Community Organizer) and co-editor of Progressive Planning Magazine (AKA Sustainable Development/Agenda 21) In his current article he states:
“The broken system for making decisions about transportation in neighborhoods leads us to the issue of transportation justice… the problem with this system of neighborhood governance is that it could lead to the creation of a more sharply divided city, one for cyclists and pedestrians and another for the car culture.”
Maybe my confusion on why a state like NY can simultaneously launch the largest bikeshare program in the country, AND need ”Sweeping layoffs of government employees to prevent New York going bankrupt“, is just because I am still just a part of the dumb “car culture”.
But this is ONLY a test. A test of what?

Cybercommand chief opposes U.N. net control – Washington Times.
The commander of the U.S. Cyber Command said Thursday that he does not favor giving the United Nations the power to regulate the Internet.
“Some regulations are needed to protect critical networks that control electrical power, banking, transportation and other key elements of society…”, Army Gen. Keith Alexander, who is also director of the National Security Agency, said after a speech to a security conference.
But asked whether the U.N. should have a regulation role, Gen. Alexander said:
“No. I’m not for regulating, per se. I’m concerned about it, and this is a tough question. I would say, generally speaking, I’m not into that portion of regulating as you would espouse.”
However, Gen. Alexander did go on to say later,
“I do think that there may be some things for critical infrastructure and government networks that we’re going to have to direct out to the government,” Gen. Alexander said.
“These are things that you must do to secure your networks for government survivability.”
