I'm doing a planning thesis on the changing conditions of student housing in Ann Arbor ~1920 to ~2000 and I'm looking for some houses/apartments to document. If you live somewhere on the OWS or the student neighborhood south of Central Campus and think your house is interesting, let me know. My objective is to examine how these structures differed in their spatial arrangements and their uses when occupied by owners vs. students/renters, and when that change occured. It would take about an hour to take some basic measurements of your house and rooms and poke around in your closets and basement, taking pictures all the while. Sound interesting? Let me know lwinlingATumichDOTedu.
The move is just about complete. I've set up shop at my own domain, urbanoasis.org. There are still some kinks to be worked out, like how the devil do I get rid of those "link" things at the top right corner of the page? Anyway, not the change in your blogrolls and your xml feeds.
I'm starting the process of moving from blogger to my own blog, but I realize I don't know what I'm doing. Anybody want to barter some MySQLphpWTF help for something I have? Candidates for barter include Bell's Beer, photography, research skills, and rowing coaching. Just some plain old advice would be good, too.
