2011 HighlightsIt's time for the Fall 4Q11 quarterly highlights post, which also sums up all of 2011. These posts have been chosen with a particular focus on significant ideas I'd like to see kept alive for discussion and action, and they're mainly targeted at new readers who want to get caught up with a quick overview of the Houston Strategies landscape. I also like to track what I think of as "reference posts" that sum up a particular topic or argument; and, last but not least, they've also been invaluable for me to track down some of my best thinking for meetings or when requested by others (as is the ever-helpful Google search). They're not quite as useful as they were when I was still doing multiple posts each week, but still have some value (at least for me).
Don't forget we offer an email option for the roughly once/week posts - see the Google Groups subscription signup box in the right sidebar. An RSS feed link is also available in the right sidebar. As always, thanks for your readership, and may you have a wonderful 2012.
- My TEDx Houston talk, mostly about Houston (a summary of some of my better ideas from this blog)
- A targeted tourism strategy for Houston (including Astrodome repurposing)
And from Summer 3Q11:
- What makes Houston Houston?
- Major Texas Metro Areas Are Confirming Failures in Rail Transit
- Houston housing model attracting worldwide attention
- Job generating ideas for Mayor Parker (inc. better commuter transit)
- Attracting national and global tourists to Houston (Engi and Tech Museum, STEM for kids, Astrodome)
And from Winter 1Q11:
And don't forget the highlights from the first few years. For what it's worth, I think the best ideas are found there, often in the first year (I had a lot "stored up" before I started blogging) and most definitely in the 5th birthday retrospective.
