In TransitCamp, people from many walks of life got together to discuss how to fix Toronto’s public transportation system. There were activists, computer geeks, bloggers, artists, and people from the Transit Commission –including its head, Adam Giambrone. By all accounts it was an extremely constructive activity (I couldn’t make it to the event, so I rely on third-party reports): a civil discussion and benefits for millions of riders. It’s one of those things that boosts my sense of civic pride for this city.
Congratulations to Mark, Eli, and Jay for their HBR piece, and thanks to them and all the organizers of TransitCamp!
