Hello all! Just saw from @bikepedantic that this place had been set up for mobility talk, and loving the idea of a dedicated instance.

I'm based in London (UK), but I work for a startup based in Leuven (Belgium) called Telraam. We have a multi-modal traffic counting device designed for citizen science, and giving residents and campaigners more opportunities to be engaged and involved with local traffic and mobility plans that affect them.

Looking forward to hear about yr projects

Helping citizens and campaigners to make the most of their local traffic data.

Interesting to see how this podcast interview with @carltonreid has generated lots of interest in , but also how he has to cope with such vitriol on all transport matters.

Very grateful there are voices out there like Carlton

Was talking to a reporter yesterday about how to learn the climate beat and realized I couldn’t confidently recommend that she do what I did anymore — follow a bunch of prospective sources, experts, and analysts on Twitter and try to understand the networks between them.

Between Twitter’s decay and the AI-ification of search engines, I’m not sure anyone is ready for how much the core mechanisms of primary-source discovery on the web could be about to degrade.

I've just discovered there's a petition on the #UK government petitions website to remove #LGBT content from the curriculum, resurrecting the horrendous Section 28 from the 1980s.

There is also a counter-petition. As of this morning, the remove petition has over 178,000 signatures, the counter-petition has just over 2,500 signatures.

Please sign the counter-petition.

Petition is UK residents and British citizens only, but anyone can boost.

New study finds on average low traffic neighbourhoods in London don't lead to major displacement of motor traffic to boundary roads. Research finds decrease within the LTNs, adding to research showing traffic reduction schemes lead to traffic evaporation.

Really interesting data on 'motonormativity' and demonstrating the need for not only focusing on risks and effects of driving, but the world view that underpins it
