Tuning into Spacematters

There’s a great deal of talk ’round town about the Spacematters blog. Please check out the suggested links. Open discussion of race is mandatory for urban localization. We have a great deal of unlearning to do. ~Gregg

The Spacematters author writes “In the most segregated city in the United States, race is something we certainly need to talk about more constructively, and this is why I write.”

Ezra Fox Explores Christiania the Free – Denmark’s (Sort Of) Lawless Place

I think I could use a little hyggelig. ~G

In 2006, the people of Freetown Christiania had one of their epic, soul-crushing consensus-democracy meetings. It wasn’t going well. The subject was the future of Christiania itself. Up for debate was a plan by the conservative government that offered a devil’s bargain.

“It comes from an Old Norse word which means protection,” he says, a fact I’ve been unable to confirm through my limited research. “It’s a feeling of deep, deep safety.” Candlelight, cold beers, hot drinks, worn wooden tables, and laughter are the hallmarks of a hyggelig atmosphere.
