[Link] Frisco old downtown area needs a vision Some say it should be

Frisco old downtown area needs a vision. Some say it should be allowed to evolve organically. I say that there must first be a vision for transformation that makes sense as a whole. Then this will create plenty of opportunities for individuals and other entities to add their own vision to it and grow as components of that vision. Look at what the Star has brought on it's coattails

I'm an experience designer. When I look at the old downtown, I see a mixture of experiences, from shopping to dining to operating a business to the many people just driving through on their way to somewhere else.

What are those experiences like? Good and bad? What are the key factors that impact those experiences qualitatively? What opportunities exist for altering those driving factors that are most likely to change the dynamics, producing more of the good experiences and less bad ones? This requires a thoughtful process of design thinking. That's what needs to happen and soon before flexibility to act on that vision is gone.

There are many ideas for what can or should be done. I have some. But I think it best set those aside initially and look at experiences. Then, having assessed the gaps between where are and where we want to be in city experience, we we have a measuring stick for evaluating proposals. So, I would like begin by asking everyone to answer this question:

The last time you were in downtown Frisco, what was the reason you were there? How was the total experience? What made it good or not so good?

"A mail merge swapped in a synonym for each term to generate unique-sounding comments."

Plausible and probable. This suspicion that spam bots were used to generate large volumes of pro-repeal net neutrality comments is supported by common sense.

It is hard for me to believe that people who are aware of what this is about would be anything except for keeping net neutrality in place. It is... View more »

Electric sounds + Classic violin + Live digital composition = Zuriel Merek
You may have heard Zuriel play at some local venues around Frisco. His electric violin work is amazing, as he loops layers of multiple stringed instruments to create a virtual orchestra. He has been called the Jimmy Page of the violin with some Kitaro and Moby mixed in. Zuriel has been a favorite of techy venues and... View more »
