Sorry for the lack of recent posts. I'm finishing up the final touches on my upcoming book "Project Future: The Inside Story Behind the Creation of Disney World".
The book was inspired by an earlier article I published with the Florida State University Law Review on the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Now, if you think that publishing a law review article can be time-consuming, rest assured that its not nearly the time-consumer as a book. Meeting with graphic designers, copy editors, publicists and the like can be very fun...and very time intensive.
Anyhow, the completion is near so I anticipate being back in the blogosphere more soon.
In the meantime, Market Watch has this interesting video discussing the fundamental shift in home building that the recent housing downturn has brought.
My wife and our three young boys (and one young girl on the way) live in a 1,800 square foot house quite comfortably. The key is that the house was designed very efficiently with reasonable proportions (do you really need 20 ft by 20 ft rooms with 12 square foot garden tubs?). I note this only to confirm that 5 or 6 person families don't really need a McMansion, especially if you dole out the gathered stuff that isn't really needed.
Anyhow, have a listen.
