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.
