More City Planning

City planning runs in the family, as does travel.  We would take side trips to visit model cities my dad knew about.  He was a connoisseur of city plans.  We subscribed to The Futurist.  A lot of this rubbed off.

What if instead of retiring to a mobile home in Florida, you could move into a dymaxion yurt in a city designed to help older people and younger families alike?  We have a lot of donated used stuff and need shops to fix and repair, so you also have opportunities to learn fix and repair skills.

Here in Portland, we have Free Geek, which is about recycling and salvaging.  I'm thinking of The Zabbaleen (I visited their place in Cairo, but not recently -- wrote some GST there and mailed it to Bucky, check the archives, early 1980s).
