What is Network Design Methodology?

A post from ecosistemo urbano translated by Francesco Cingolani of immaginoteca.com which addresses a concern of all of us in the bloggosphere “Then, “If we all spend our time writing on our blogs, who will have time to read them?”. That is what I asked myself a while ago, when I started my own blog.” so in the same way – if everyone is busy designing  the city – who will be out there to build it or to experience it? This has overtones  of the dreams in the movie Inception where the deeper you go – the more difficult it is to resurface to reality or even to know what reality is – this is  no different to what every drug addict experiences in his addiction – my belief is it is necessary to share your views with other REAL PEPOLE in the REAL WORLD now and to incorporate their views with your own – thus experiencing their world alongside your own. We are thus what we share as well as what we create.
