tryin' to stick it to the man, since 2009 (and help food-oriented groups and small businesses)

This afternoon I took a trip down to Burien to see the B /IAS installation at the Burien Town Square. Click here for a Worldchanging.com article on how the project came to fruition on an empty construction site, much like the PPL.
While it's true that I visited early in the afternoon on a Tuesday, I can't help but think of how many more people might visit such a space on Capitol Hill, given its foot traffic. Anyway, Burien has done a good job here and I hope we can learn from them; in all honesty, I'm a little embarrassed that they made something like this happen before us, but that's just me being a snob.
No events are currently planned but let me know if you have an idea for something. With the weather changing and the academic year in full swing, I'll mainly be posting information about news and events that I think will interest readers of this site. Please get in touch if you would like to share something.
As an Associated Program with Shunpike, People's Parking Lot is now able to accept donations from the good people of the internet. Our events are all planned and executed by volunteers so every dollar counts. So if you're feeling generous and would like to put a few dollars toward next year's Park(ing) Day (for insurance, sod, supplies, etc.), it would be greatly appreciated!
