more of a debate than i expected

If you missed my live debate with Darrin Nordahl on Treehugger on Wednesday, you can watch it anytime here.  (NOTE:  The debate starts around 4:08).

Darrin's thesis: Transit should be more fun. 

Mine: Transit should be more useful. 

But we also agree on many things.  He's a great guy, and moderator Lloyd Alter is worth watching, too.  Here.

    I enjoyed doing it, one of the livelier sessions we have had. Your book is extremely important for the discussion of the future of transit, I am basing an article about the toronto scene on what I learned from it. Thanks for joining us!

    Maybe Darrin Nordhahl comes off better in writing… but I’m not sure why I would read a book about transit written by someone that seems less knowledgeable about transit than the average commenter on your blog.
    Unsurprisingly, you sounded like a knowledgeable, experinced professional.

    Very nice debate, thank you for participating, Jarrett. Your concept of transport means as a part of open street helped me to articulate my funny feelings about tinted glass windows in new Prague tramways (15T).
