100 and Counting
This is the 100th post to the River Talk blog, a fact that, to a “20th century guy” like me, is kind of amazing.
So I don’t want to take a lot of time with this, since there’s so much more to do, but it’s worth asking: now what?
We’ll keep writing of course, and I hope there’s more “we” (meaning more voices, comments, interaction, than “me.”
We’ll try to get ourselves connected to other blogs in the “river sustainability” conversation, and map a better sense of what that conversation sounds like.
We’ll strengthen connections between the blog and the River Atlas that our program produces in collaboration with the Global Landscapes Initiative at the Institute on the Environment.
Essentially, we’ll use the blog to extend the multitude of very interesting discussions, conferences, meetings, classes, proposals, and general energy that is taking place on river sustainability. We’ll write about what’s going on across practice areas and academic disciplines here in the Twin Cities, hoping to connect people to each other here and farther afield. And we’ll write about what’s going on elsewhere, as a means, we hope, of expanding the range of considerations taking place in our own little piece of the Big River.
Now I’ll ask you for advice: what (else) should we be talking about?
