A bunch of sciencey type people did some sciencey type stuff and think they found the secret to the everlasting Roman concrete. Compared that to the junk we have today where you have to repoint your brick building after 10 years and sidewalks crack if you look at them funny, this might become a major discovery, especially for hydraulic concrete. Shhhhhh...its still a kind of a secret, but if you own a volcano, you might be sitting on a figurative gold mine. …See More
"It is a very interesting conundrum you bring to light. I, too, have noticed what I would deem "certain deficiencies" in a number of aspects of various programs I have seen over the years, and not just in LA. My reasoning is that the job…"

I sent one in too just recently - I put so much work into an article for Contour (I think you were a contributor too?) - that I want to get it published if I can. If not....there's always the blogosphere....
Too bad they had to dumb your article down. One would assume that landscape architects are reading at a higher level than 8th grade, though some of the "professional" writing I've read is just a disaster, so maybe not. I thought it was really timely and connects to what a lot of LAs are talking / worrying / wondering about. It would be great to see some of the hot button issues we are seeing here reflected in LAM - not that we should all be talking about the same thing, but it seems like we are talking some things absolutely to death that they don't mention at all. So here's to hoping for your continuing contributions to LAM - AND getting paid for them!
