Alan AtKisson's essay, Dreaming of a New New Orleans, Version 1, has received abundant, well-deserved attention. It's going to get even more -- Alan's essay was featured in a short article at BusinessWeek magazine.
This is important for a number of reasons. Not just because it gives Alan more visibility (although that's terrific to see), not even because it gives WorldChanging more visibility (ibid), but because it gives mainstream attention to these ideas. People who have never even heard of WorldChanging will be exposed to Alan's persuasive prose, and the notion of rebuilding New Orleans on a basis of sustainability and long-term livability will have a greater chance of entering the broader public conversation on the city's, and the country's, future.
