Plus: Digital artists are looking at NFTs to make profit.

Hi, it’s Tuesday!

If you’ve ever wanted to help name a huge drill, now is your chance. Seattle Public Utilities asked for submissions to name the city’s new tunnel boring machine earlier this month and they’ve narrowed them down to five — Daphne, Molly the Mole, Boris the Plunger, Sir Digs-A-Lot, and MudHoney. The drill will be used for the Ship Canal Water Quality Project in Ballard.

You can vote on the name until tomorrow so make your voice heard in what surely is the most important election of the year. 

Stick around for new guidelines for the city’s crosswalk signals, a documentary featuring a Seattle biker, and (for Evergrey Extra members) another round of I Spy. 

What Seattle is talking about

Slow walkers rejoice. Ever feel the anxiety of trying to make it across a crosswalk with just a few seconds left? Well, the city is giving pedestrians a little more time to get across the street. Traffic engineers calculate the length of a walk signal by taking into account a number of factors and will now have to use an updated formula for new signals installed. The change has been welcomed by disability advocates and seniors. (The Seattle Times)

Artists are jumping on board the NFT train with crypto art. If you’re not familiar with what NFTs are, you can catch up here. The new currency is attractive to artists who can put a price tag on their art, particularly in the digital realm. You can learn more about the new cryptocurrency beyond this newsletter's streamlined version by checking out the article over at Crosscut

Popping up online. Since the pandemic, businesses have been forced to pivot their normal operations, and pop-ups are no exception. Properly Organized and Orderly Pop-Up (POOPU for short) shifted to selling their goods through Instagram. According to one of the cofounders, artists say that they’ve sold more than they’ve ever had at any other pop-up market. (Seattle Met)

Watch this mini-documentary spotlighting a Seattle biker.All Bodies on Bikes” follows Seattleite Marley Blonsky and a friend as they take a bike camping trip and discuss their relationships with their bodies and how society perceives weight. Marley works to help those with larger bodies feel welcome in the biking community. She’s also teaching a two-part bike camping class online in April that you can register for here.  (Seattle Bike Blog)
