“What I really want to know,” I wrote, “is if there’s a conference—or even just a gang blog—devoted to talking about those ways we talk about online space and offline space, and what lessons can be learned from each to apply to the other.” Lo and behold, Civic Signals.

We’re bringing together a group of people who don’t usually share the same space — world-class urban planners, technologists, designers and community leaders — to tap into the wisdom of physical spaces and envision better digital ones.

Or, at least, this is relevant to one direction of this: finding lessons in the physical for our lives in the virtual. I wonder what such lessons could be taken from the “unwritten code” of riding the bus.
