Designing for pedestrians in Midtown

Kevin Cronin sends us this excellent reminder about the value of designing Midtown communications for a pedestrian scale:

...I would favor small kiosks. The difference, in my mind, is scale.  The large billboards are quick messages for cars as they head out of town.  If someone is walking around, I'm all for wired kiosks and displays (which also would probably be paid for by advertising, but would be less intrusive).

I still urge some of the activities we've discussed - community portal, low budget information sharing (bulletin boards and
flyers), banners on major streets...
