Exciting news from GOOD Magazine newsletter today that they’re launching a series of category-specific platforms for thought and action in conjunction with IBM.  Their first category to launch last month was Cities, which you can check out at  We’re especially psyched to see some of the great ideas that were generated during the Velocity salon in Grand Rapids be shared as part of a bigger online brainstorm on how to make cities better places to live in.  Have an amazing idea for improving city life while being kind to the planet? Tweet it to @GOOD with hashtag #cityideas and share the wealth. Also in the Cities platform, check out our beer buddy Josh McManus’ urban dispatch from Paris as he travels around Europe for a month on the Marshall Fellowship.  Josh is the co-founder of CreateHere in Chattanooga — an inspiring organization that’s been instrumental in the city’s energetic revitalization.  He kind of rules.

Finally, a long overdue but heartfelt shout-out to all the wonderful people of Grand Rapids who helped us on our Urban Spelunking mission. You know who you are and how much we ♥ you!
