Open Sourcing the Design of Civil Infrastructure What is OSD-CI? OSD-CI represents a grassroots collaboratory for research, practice and education that will massively expand the resources available to address the nation’s infrastructure crisis by allowing open collaboration in four dimensions of hardware, software, knowledge and manpower. This project boldly invites the public at large, with appropriate mechanisms to assure trustworthiness in technical tasks as needed, to unite and address this nation's infrastructure crisis collectively. How Does it Work? This collaboratory would accept job submissions from end users (firms, researchers, fellow Citizen Engineers), who would specify relevant details (scope, constraints, models, etc.), deadlines, submission formats, and requisite credentials. Citizen Engineers with the proper membership status can volunteer to contribute to these job submissions, with the help of a tool repository and enhanced computational power through the portal’s computing cloud.

Walking in Ecuador (the Good) Okay, we've established that Ecuador has some challenges when it comes to the pedestrian environment. But what about its successes? As I observed in my jaunts through cities large and small, in many places Ecuador has really done things right. Consider this street in Quito's New Town: Note the street furniture, large trees, and narrow roadway. The bricks are a nice touch also, though I wonder if they present any type of maintenance or accessibility problems.
