In the spirit of a call from Ethan Zuckerman, the director of the MIT Center for Civic Media, for more “wide news” — news that reflects society’s diversity of opinions — we’ve been sending out some recommended readings for each of our events that cut across the spectrum. This month, our topic is “Why Aren’t We Moving? An Inside Look at the MBTA.” We have a few suggested starting points, organized to hopefully offer a variety of angles on this month’s topic.
Please note that these are by no means meant to be thorough, but rather, the readings are merely meant as a place to begin our conversation, as well as a way of showcasing some of the conversations already happening.
