Five years ago when I was a resident at the Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab we would brainstorm possible new media programs/applications/devices/things that we could create content for. Lots of ideas involved the city and, more importantly, locations in the city. We thought about how to deliver content and information to those locations — information that was specifically about that location. The problem was our ideas were way ahead of the technological solutions at the time. Devices either did not exist with the capability we needed or the technology was far too expensive or clunky.
Toronto keeps producing interesting homages to our public transit heritage despite the TTC’s total lack of appreciation (or attention): Spacing’s subway buttons , the TTC font , the subway anagram map , historical type and tile tours , and now wall decals. Derek Watson has created a handful of designs that replicate the appearance of subway platforms (currently available: St. Clair, Queen’s Park, Wellesley, Union, Spadina, Pape, “Northbound-Southbound”, and “Next Station St. George”).

RAIL transport in Italy is being shaken up. Nuovo Trasporto Viaggiatori (NTV) has announced plans to run Europe’s first private high-speed rail service there. The group will operate the service on three main routes using state-owned tracks. The trains—the new Automotrice Grande Vitesse designed by Alstom, a French company—will travel at 190mph, cutting the four-hour Rome-Milan journey to three hours.
The Toronto maps are neighbourhood guides published annually by blogTO. Each map offers a curated selection of local restaurants, bars, fashion and design stores, salons, art galleries and other places to hang-out, shop or enjoy local culture. The two-sided map features colour profiles and info of select local businesses on one side, and a map and legend on the other. And the whole thing is integrated with the blogTO web site and iPhone and iPad apps where you can always find the latest openings, reviews and other need-to-know info. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
With airfare on the rise, planning a trip can be expensive and complicated.
The latest version of Google Maps for Mobile includes an option that was already available in Google Maps: directions for public transportation. Google's coverage has been continuously expanded in the past months to many US states, Japan, Austria, Switzerland, important cities from Canada, Italy, France, UK and Australia. Google Maps is one of the applications that is very useful when you are on the go and this new feature is a good alternative to the existing driving directions.
A year and a half ago, Spacing teamed up with Reading Toronto, BlogTO and Torontoist to gather ideas from our readers on how the TTC could improve its web site . Our efforts resulted in the TTC soliciting a much more robust Request For Proposal (RFP) that addressed a number of our concerns. This online discussion became a focal point at the inaugural Transit Camp in the spring of 2007, and continued to be a hot topic at the recent Metronauts conference (Transit Camp’s latest incarnation). On Thursday, the media will get a sneak peak at the TTC’s new beta web site. Staff has been playing their cards close to their chest so we have no idea what to expect. A report from Spacing will follow on Friday.
In the first of our series of interviews with Really Nice Foreign People Who Really Like Iceland, we talk to the lovely Mark Ollard. Mark writes a rather good “music blog that thinks it’s Icelandic” called Iceblah . He claims he’s been coming to Iceland Airwaves since 2004 but he still doesn’t know who Kitty von Sometime is. We investigated.
Few visitors can travel around Iceland without being deeply touched by the sheer beauty of it all; and few can leave the country without a pang and a fervent vow to return. It’s that sort of place. <div><a href="http://ad.doubleclick.net/jump/2009.lonelyplanet/rest-of-site;dcopt=ist;ctt=europe;cnty=iceland;thm=family-travel;thm=beaches;thm=best-in-travel;thm=islands;thm=road-trips;thm=adventure-travel;tnm=overview;sz=300x250;ord=123456789?"
Published on Thursday, March 6 2008 I use both TripIt and Dopplr , as each is better at certain things than the other. In my ideal world, the act of forwarding a travel confirmation to TripIt, which establishes a trip, would also create the same trip in Dopplr, which my Dopplr badge, news feed on Facebook, Fire Eagle account, and lifestream would then share with the public, abstracting the details of flights and hotels and such.
