You may have noticed over the past few months that I’ve been alluding to a new project. That project is now live and in color. It is called Talking Traffic and is a podcast/blog site designed to bring some clarity to the confusion that often arises when I talk to people about what I do for a living.
The reason for this is two-fold: One, I think it’s useful for people to know some of the basics behind transportation engineering, as the topic is often featured in the media and political debates. Two, maybe (just maybe) someone who listens to the podcast will come to one of the public information meetings I am present at as a consultant and I won’t have to ever-so-nicely disagree with them over a point of engineering. Instead of educating them there, I can educate them here (well, over at Talking Traffic)
This blog, The Evil Eyebrow, will revert to being more of a personal endeavor, divorced partially from my professional life, which has been notably featured in the This Week in Traffic postings and other essays about infrastructure. Of course, I won’t be sending all of the random postings I do concerning highways, bridges, railroads, and airports to Talking Traffic; some of it won’t belong there. And you can expect to see some crossposting back and forth from both sites.
Hopefully everyone who reads The Evil Eyebrow will enjoy both this site and the new one.
