Fun Yet Insane...

A couple of readers emailed me and asked if I'm still blogging here.  The answer is a big "Yes".  My lack of recent posts relates to this ongoing experience with publishing a general interest book--in this instance my new book entitled "Project Future:  The Inside Story Behind the Creation of Disney World".

Unlike my first book on the SmartCode, this one was not directed toward a narrow, land use audience (though it was born out of a law review article I published with FSU's law review on improvement districts).  Still, I figured that a few friends, family members, and colleagues would buy the book and I might do a signing or two locally.

Well, in the lingo of that wise Jedi named Yoda, "Wrong was I."

Now, let me be clear:  I'm not complaining at all.  The entire experience has been eye-opening and exciting.  However, little did I expect to find such interest in how Disney World first got started.  I've done podcasts, interviews with blogs, websites, book reviews, and even the main Orlando daily paper. 

Now, a small book/presentation tour has been set for late June in Central Florida (if you want all the details on these things just check out Project Future Book on Facebook--that's kind of the semi-official repository of all things Project Future book-related).

Hopefully this doesn't all sound like a lame excuse for being a land use blogging slacker of late.  I've had several things come across my desk that really warrant sharing.  And, after I knock out a few things on Monday of this week, I'll be back with a host of posts.

In the meantime, thanks to our excellent readers and my fantastic blogging colleagues for their patience.

Great news Chad! I'm looking forward to reading the book. If you have any web links to the podcasts, reviews, etc., let us know!
