Re: Electric Scooters

Jump looks like they use the same brand as Lime. Which is too bad because I remember many Lime scooters breaking last year. It’s interesting that they are capping city wide at 2K and downtown at 800, with a required 600 in North. All split evenly between the 4 companies. That sounds like a lot to m...

Re: Thrivent Headquarters Block - 6th St and Portland Ave

Have they figured out what’s going to be built on the southern portion of the driving book yet? The part of the block not currently occupied by the new headquarter building.

This was discussed previously, but this is a big boost for connectivity with the whole of Asia.

If you read the Strib comments section, any public transit might as well be a RV.

Re: City Club Apartments - 1000 Marquette Ave (Handicraft Building)

Personally, I think I could grow accustomed to life without an oven rather quickly. A vast majority of my cooking is skillet based. However, from ages 20 to about 26/27 frozen pizzas were a staple item for me (in the range of 1/week). From what we've heard that age group is the Target (hehe) demogra...

Re: What's Your Take On Minneapolis E-Democracy?

I think "vox" is commonly used enough that VOX Media wouldn't have much grounds for that, but IANAL. IANAL too, but I disagree. Vox Media is a well known national news source. Vox.mn is also trying to be a source for news. Creating a Vox.mn seems to be using Vox Media's brand capital, and grounds f...

First she tried to steal WedgeLIVE's name and is now ripping off the popular website VOX? Stunning lack of originality.
If this bubbles up to VOX media, pretty sure there will be a swift cease and desist letter.

I remember when it was loudly bemoaned downtown lacked a grocery store. Now there are ... four? I bet even more could survive. By my count, we have 4: Trader Joes Lunds Target Whole Foods Only Lunds and Whole Paycheck are full service. I'd reckon that there is capacity for another full service groc...
