Wake to Washington

Coming this summer:
Jack Evans II: The Revengeance

Stuck in DC

In news that won’t surprise anyone who has experienced the joys of single-tracking, DC residents have among the longest commutes in the nation, with the average DC worker spending 43 minutes in transit to and from work. Although commute times have increased nearly everywhere in the past thirty years, the problem is particularly pronounced in pricey metro areas with large housing shortages and suboptimal public transport

The draw of Denver 

When people leave D.C., some look to Baltimore (15%), others to Philadelphia (15%), but a growing group heads to Denver, Colorado. While most of the folks on the way out are looking to commute back to D.C., one analyst suggested Mile High tech companies are recruiting for policy backgrounds ready to beef up the defenses of Denver’s tech scene from the wrath of 2020 contenders


Don’t call it a comeback

Continuing our coverage of the accursed mobius strip that is Jack Evans’ political career: the ex-councilmember has announced his intention to run for the Ward 2 seat he resigned from just 10 days ago. Who knows how this shitshow will play out, but early reactions from Evans’ former DC Council colleagues have been, uh, less than enthusiastic. 


Student organizing at Washington Met

In an article about the organizing done by students at the first DCPS school to close since 2013, some stark realities: 15% of the students are homeless. Some chant “White people are trying to close our school.” One says she can’t raise her voice too much during a protest because she has to go home to her child. (Met is the one on Bryant between Howard and Bloomingdale.)


In 2020, electric scooters will…

...see some companies go out of business...see city regulations create winners and losers...see new (and maybe sturdier) forms and models...and see the continuation of arguments about datasharing and location tracking.
