  • A very good video, “How the Dutch Got Their Cycle Paths.”

    Interesting footage of the Dutch sacrificing their public space to cars (buildings demolished; beautiful, centuries-old town squares turned into parking lots) and then coming to their senses and reclaiming it back. I wasn’t aware how much organized protesting it took in the seventies to push the Netherlands to shift their transport policies.
