City Eco Lab: Velo Wala


A personal treat for me at City Eco Lab was the VeloWala installation that's being put together for us specially by Quicksand and friends in India.

Across the hall the Velowala presentation about bicycle-enabled commerce in India was as fabulous as I knew it would be.


Avinash (below) and his colleagues are building a rich media archive that pieces together the ecosystem of bicycle-based commerce in India.


In City Eco Lab you hear the sounds of the various traders as well as see photographs of them.

All-in-all, there's been plenty already to make me think - and lots more to make me smile. (I do this stuff for myself, of course).
