After much consideration, I finally decided on the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. It was a difficult decision, but I'm confident that it's the right one. I LOVE the studio aspect of the program and the physical studio space (the trays) are awesome as well. I also love the faculty, and there are several that I'm looking forward to working with more closely. One of them was the head planner in Barcelona for many years, so I'm pondering the idea of doing my thesis comparing the Olympics in Catalunya and Quebec and their role in building identity. So anyway, it's two more years in Boston. Now I'm just wishing it were September.

We're also expecting a new member of the family... a macBook pro. My old iBook served us well, but it's time for an upgrade. I remember when I thought it'd be impossible to fill up a 30 gig harddrive, now I need 175 plus a 250 gig external drive for school. Crazy. (oh, bonus... the GSD has sooo much free software. That's the perks of being a Harvard student I guess... that and the polo shirts with little crocodiles).

There's no contact information, so the only way to reach you is by leaving a comment on your blog. Sorry.

Cyburbia (http://www.cyburbia.org), founded in 1994, is the Internet's oldest continuously operating planning-related Web site. Cyburbia has served the planning community for nearly 14 years with very little funding or financial remuneration. The Cyburbia Forums (http://www.cyburbia.org/forums) went online in 1996, and today remains a vibrant virtual third place for planners, students and others interested in the built environment ; 5,800 members, 400,000 posts, and still growing.

You've got a large blogroll to many planning-related sites, but Cyburbia seems to be missing. Just wanted to make you aware of the site's existence. Thanks!
