SFDB Post Of The Week
SFDB selects its Post of the Week by going back and reviewing all the Sifts that we've done over the past 7 days. We find the best post of the week and note the runners ups as we judge them to be.
Blogging always slows down during a holiday week so last week was rather pedestrian, but we still were fortunate enough to get some quality posts that in some cases were a direct result of the holiday. Here we go with this week's SFDB Post of the Week selections...
Runners-Up: The Miami Bike Scene did justice to their 2nd Annual Cranksgiving event with a great slideshow and a video showing the start and finish in their post titled Cranksgiving 2010: Recap. Beached Miami told us all about the new recycling center on Miami Beach which generated a lot of feedback in the comments of the post. A Miami Herald story prompted Random Pixels to do a little investigating about a couple guys who should have been behind bars instead of doing home invasions in Miami-Dade County. What he came up with is in A Life Of Crime Comes To An End.
Winner: Transit Miami continues to be at the forefront of efforts advocating for mass transit and the creation of a safe environment for bicyclists and pedestrians in Miami-Dade County. The death of a 21-year-old UM student at a Coral Gables intersection in mid-November prompted TM to conduct an in-depth analysis of the intersection in an effort to determine what design flaws may have contributed to the tragic hit-and-run accident involving the young pedestrian. The post uses Google images taken at street level and from above as the discussion focuses on the crosswalks and sidewalks and the overall dismal condition of the intersection. It's an articulate, well-composed and important post that's deserved of this week's SFDB Post of the Week recognition.
I can't believe it's already time to vote for the November Post of the Month. Stay tuned for the voting to begin later this week.
And...'til next time, keep on blogging!
