Yet Another Site I Will Rarely If Ever Use

But Then Again, I Said That About Twitter. Ahem.

Get Your City Walking With DIY Wayfinding

Urban designer Matt Tomasulo has launched Walk [Your City], a website that enables users to generate custom street signs in order to improve walkability of their neighborhood. Main objectives of the platform are building a local sense of community and helping citizens becoming more engaged.

Another important reason for Tomasulo to build Walk [Your City] is to stimulate people to exercise more, for instance by taking a simple walk. “In 1960, 1:4 citizens took one useful, 10-minute walk each day. Now that number is 1:10”, he explains. The website is built around a handy tool that allows everyone to create custom street signs based on walkability. Users draw a route between two points and the tool automatically calculates the walk or cycle minutes from A to B, as well as generates a good-looking sign. A QR code in the bottom corner links to a mobile website that displays the entire walking route.

Users can order their custom-made signs, which is rather expensive. One sign costs you $25 including shipping — that’s not cheap if you take into account the chance that your beautiful sign will be removed after a short while by some enthusiast policeman. Nevertheless, Walk [Your City] could turn out a great way for people to guide others to great places, such as a new bar, a street intervention or an event that would be hard to find otherwise.

The platform once started as a guerrilla project in Raleigh comprising of 27 street signs in three zones of the city. The signs caught the eye of city officials who considered making them permanent. However, they didn’t like the design of the signs. A year later, the City of Raleigh officially adopted the program and incorporated it into its city-marketing. With the launch of the Walk [Your City] website, Tomasulo gives the rest of the world the opportunity to add a user-generated layer of wayfinding to cities.

Libertea Tumblr Post photoset #6

more?

Australian Photoset #5

 Battle of the Countries #4

Does this mean that Jen and their relationships are an embodiment of this ship?

This is the BEST EVER.

And why is the 2nd floor the first floor? Because in Europe it goes ground floor, 1st floor, 2nd floor, instead of the ground and the 1st floor being the same thing.

BTW, Canada also has the chocolate Smarties and what we call Smarties in America is branded as Rockets.

The Nu Project

Your body is normal. Repeat after me: “My body is normal. My body is wonderful. My body is beautiful.”

Most importantly though, “My body is mine.”

Each as beautiful as the next.

This project is so important. It includes women of all ages and body types and races and it has trans women. This is so important.

Transgender People are Completely Banned From Boarding Airplanes in Canada

transbucket:

The shit hit the fan in the trans blogosphere last night, when it came to light that there is a disturbing new section in the Identity Screening Regulations used in airports throughout Canada. Simp…… more at Transgender People are Completely Banned From Boarding Airplanes in Canada

Actually, to be technical, it only bans trans people who can’t pass as the gender on their ID. But that’s a large number, and still fucking bullshit.

Which Blog of C4bl3Fl4m3’s Should I Follow?

Hi folks!

I’ve been noticing I’ve been getting a lot of new followers lately. I thought I’d clue you in to all of my different blogs so that you can follow the one(s) you’re most interested in. It might not be this one!

Note that all of my blogs could theoretically contain kink, sex, nudity, and swear words at any given time. (Ok, so it’s EXTREMELY unlikely that the food blog would have anything but swear words, but…) I also do not tag posts for content on any regular basis, so if you’re worried about that sort of thing, you probably should just not follow me.

I mostly reblog things, but sometimes I put up original content. The ones that aren’t my general blog I put more original content up on, but I do have my share of OC on my general blog, mainly because I wrote about things before I created those other blogs, so… If you’re interested in the things I write, I do try to tag all of those #my writings, and when I have something substantial to comment on another post, I try to tag it #adding my take.

C4bl3Fl4m3: my primary/general blog. It’s the catch all one… anything from kink to feederism to geeky things to mental illness to food stuff to spirituality to social justice to transit to just stuff that looks cool. It’s basically all of me. NOTE that some of my other blogs cover some of that stuff, too, but I don’t necessarily x-post stuff from this one to those, or from those to this one. Sometimes I do, and sometimes I don’t, so if you’re interested in the subject, follow both.

ProfanityAndProphecyI have a passion for activism surrounding the adoption of a set of ethics/morals around interactions within the various social justice communities. This is the blog where I espouse that. There’s a lot of (hopefully, non-preachy!) spirituality, religion, ethical culture, philosophy, ethics, morals, social justice, sex-positive, kink/fetish-positive, and fandom stuff on that blog, esp. posts where one or more of these converge. It also has posts about my own spiritual journey. I’m functionally a spiritual/religious atheist (yes, you read that right), so regardless of where you sit, you hopefully can find something of interest. (Or maybe EVERYONE will be insulted equally! Yay!) If you’re interested in the convergence of Doing Good with our various cultures (SJ, altsex, geek), then this is the blog for you.

HisInSoManyWays: My newest blog! This is the blog I’m chronicling my kink-D/s journey with. I started this because, even though I’ve been in the Scene for 9 years, and been kinky/drawn to power/had fetishes since I was a little kid, I got a boyfriend who is a Dominant, and so there’s a lot more of this stuff actively going on in my life (and in my head) these days. I mainly do this on FetLife, but since I wanted to reblog stuff on Tumblr, often times with my take, and I wanted to have it all in one easy place, I realized I should probably just make a blog for it. I do x-post writings to & from FetLife. This blog includes BDSM, D/s (NOT M/s or O/p), role play (inc. parent-child incest & age play, and Divine/follower role play), and sex. (I usually keep my feedism fetish stuff on my main blog, but if/when they cross over into my relationship, I’ll bring it up here.)

FoodieInterrupted: this is the blog I was doing when I had gallstones and had to follow a low-fat diet for 2 years but still wanted to stay a foodie and eat tasty food. I dropped it ages ago, but if that’s your thing, go for it. (I loved that blog but hardly got any followers.) I actually got the gallstones out in January, so I doubt I’ll start it up again.

HerTheFandom: A blog for Her, the Movie, whose emphasis was on fan creation. I started it up when it was just in select theaters. I dropped it ages ago, but if you’re really into it, let me know, and I’ll let you have the blog.

SpamLoveLetters: I’d love to get people into this. You know how sometimes spam is a love letter? I love the love letters. So I post them w/o the spam links. (If YOU get any spam love letters, feel free to submit them!)

mohala-sumiko:

this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

REALLY? REALLY? You’d think in this country, a church would be untouchable. Assholes.
