World Streets/Monthly Report - March 2010

We very much doubt that most of our busy readers have the time to check into World Streets on a daily basis. For that reason we make available to our subscribers and sponsors in addition to the daily edition, a monthly summary which brings together in one place all postings and comments in a manner in which the busy reader can scan the month's titles in a few lines and make a decision as to whether or not to call up and read the full article. Time-efficient communication in an overload world.

* * * The monthly reports are reserved for supporting subscribers and sponsors. They are also being developed in other language editions. * * *
March 2010, the month that was:
Another busy month on World Streets, our thirteenth since start-up in March 2009, with 10,392 visitors from some fifty countries dropping in over the course of the month to pick up and at least scan a total of 26 widely varied articles, touching on projects, ideas and accomplishments in places as diverse as Nepal, New York City, Italy, Portugal, Iceland, Sweden, France, India and Japan, reporting on matters ranging from innovations and impacts in walking and cycling, carsharing and ridesharing, sustainable cities strategies, some bad ideas masquerading as sustainable transport, the two million dollar stop sign, the importance of expanding the role of female leadership in our sector (again!), thoughts on how we can look and learn from each other, and some practical advice on how to work effectively with other languages in World Streets and beyond.
