I wrote this blog between August of 2009 and February of 2012.  I started it when I was living in Washington, DC and continued it as I moved first to Pittsburgh and then to San Francisco. Living in and exploring three different cities while studying and writing about many different aspects of these places gave me a helpful perspective on the best and less great aspects of each one.

I constantly imagined how things could work better or be more beautiful or more resourceful, I was always dwelling on problems.

I wanted to write about how to make things amazing and so I had to articulate how and why the status quo wasn’t working.
