Interesting ideas on how “human scale” urban design can make cities a lot more livable and pleasant – and also why a lot of “new urbanism” doesn’t quite feel right. Turns out very narrow, walkable streets are key. My initial reaction to seeing places with narrow streets is to assume they’re in ultra-expensive “historic” districts like Beacon Hill, parts of Harvard Square, or traditional European cities, but it turns out neighborhoods like this are much cheaper to build and maintain, in addition to being walkable, and (I think) a lot more aesthetically balanced compared to automobile-scale neighborhoods.

- A remarkable capacity for storing information is coupled with a highly fallible retrieval process.
- What is accessible in memory is highly dependent on the current environmental, interpersonal, emotional and body-state cues.
- Retrieving information from memory is a dynamic process that alters the subsequent state of the system.
- Access to competing memory representations regresses towards the earlier representation over time
