Headlines from Worldchanging Seattle (8/8/08)


This week we were excited to see a lot of traffic on Worldchanging Seattle, which we're sure was spurred by the blogosphere buzz around Morgan Greenseth's The Future of Shopping Malls: An Image Essay. If you haven't yet had a chance to check it out and add your comments, please do!

This week's other headlines ranged from teen visionaries to clean air. Check out what's new:

Tell SDOT How to Make Seattle Walkable
How, why and where do you walk? Weigh in with this 11-question survey (it's quick, we promise) and help shape the city's Pedestrian Master Plan.
