It came from the Blogosphere...

Blogs on blogs on Atlantic Yards

Yesterday's NY Times article on the bloggers covering Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards proposal drew the inevitable reaction in the blogosphere, creating a virtual hall of mirrors.

REAL ESTATE

TRANSFORMING JOURNALISM & POLITICS

The response to this project highlights the fact that blogging is a multidimensional writing/research/communication modality.

Would a state agency provide a centralized comment space, for communication and dialog about its proposals?

But I wouldn't want to suggest that "professional amateur" was intended as a derogatory term in any case. Having recently returned from a eclipse-viewing trip, I know how important "amateur" astronomers are to the "professional" astronomy community. I consider it a form of "open source" culture that should be encouraged.
