Answering the Call… Bikeway on 3rd Ave

Today after biking a bit, taking care of the work day, and handling a few other things I’ll be answering the call for volunteers with Better Block PDX. We’re working on materials and constructing items needed to make 3rd Street Cycle Track Bike Lane Redesign a success! The residents could benefit, the businesses, the city, the cyclists going through the area – you name it. This could be a huge…

Nools Objects

In the helloworld.nools object there is a single object defined called Message. This object has two elements defined; the text property and the constructor. The specific object definition is shown below.

define Message {
    text : '',
    constructor : function(message){
        this.text = message;
    }
}

This object can now be referred to by name throughout the nools…

Biking... (Guess where this is?)

Biking… (Guess where this is?)

I was just reading about a new way to measure cycling success. It wasn’t based on data or anything of that means. It’s much more simple then that. The measurement is just a mere notion of how many people you’ve met while biking. How many people you’ve introduced to cycling. Simply, how much more experience you’ve had in life from cycling.

Learning “nools” Rules Engine

Learning “nools” Rules Engine for #nodejs

JavaScript

Recently I sat down to work up a solution around a rules engine. There were a few things I noticed right off.

  1. When there is a request to implement or build a rules engine it is very often (I’m guessing a solid 40-60% of the time) reasoned that there is a need solely based on a lack of understanding around what the problem space is that actually needs a solution. The simple assumption, is 40-60%…

Portland’s PMLR Project, Where I’m Moving (One of These Days)…

First point of context. The PMLR stands for the Portland-Milawukie Light Rail Project. The name is somewhat misleading, because it is dramatically more than merely a simple little light rail project. I’ll add more context to what exactly it is over the blog entries following this one. For now, I want to detail a particular chunk of the area where the PMLR is being built that I’ve decided I’d like…

A Cascading Seat Post Collision and The Green Line

I sat pondering as I waited for departure, how I’ve ridden the Green Line more in the last 2 months than I have in the last 5 years. Mainly because I can get on at 5th and Madison, closer to where I call home these days, and get out to Hollywood District that anything to do with the Clackamas connection the Green Line was built for. But I digress…

I’ve been riding transit a lot more these last…

A New Day of Transit Sleuthing

As I Ride the Yellow Line and think about things I need to get done, one thought resounds as I hack away on the light rail. The air conditioning blowing on a hot day like this is nice, the thought of the 190+ blog entries that sit in my queue incomplete because I’ve been somewhat demoralized about so many things related to transit and other matters as of the last few years. Even though transit,…
