The Internet is Weird Man...

John and Stephie have this thing on their site that lets you check what websites have links to yours. So, about two weeks ago, the Japanese version of Boston.com said something like: ねひしうツスシニハZAKCQ. Should I be concerned? There was also a link to an op-ed in the Springfield, Mass newspaper (named The Republican, which is a little scary in and of itself) that quoted my blog a few weeks ago about parking and highways. So I guess I should start spell checking huh? Put something on the internet and all the sudden your an expert. No wonder the country is going to the dogs.

ps. i was hitting random japanese characters there, so if I said anything offensive I apologize.

I was the one who quoted your blog in the Springfield Republican. I write a daily blog about city life and urban issues and personal anecdotes. I've been reading your blog for a while - as a cities major in college, your studies interest me, as well as the fact that you're in Massachusetts.

I commented here once about being curious about urban agriculture. In my profile I linked to my blog. Maybe you could check out who's reading you and commenting and then it wouldn't be such a surprise to see your site referenced.

And yes, once it's out there, it's out there. Maybe a good thing.

john, it's somewhere on your site.

heather, thanks for reading. I just added a link to your site, so I'll be reading it now for sure. btw. if you like Donald Schup, Planetizen just started doing a podcast and he was one of a three part series on parking. It's good stuff.

Thanks for the link and the tip. Who would have guessed what a hot topic parking is? Some of the juiciest stuff out there right now. Relates strongly not just to appearance/feel of a place, but transportation needs which impact on environment both in terms of land use (sprawl etc) and global warming trends; plus there's the whole how-does-a-city-make-revenue thing.
