Any word/data on whether the "public" showed up and made a difference for the independents at the Bookfair? Anecdotally, the feeling was mostly Lanyard walkers around, not a lot of "Public."

commented on Crime Is Not Actually Spiking Downtown
great article on an issue(s) that I think need to be more considered and dissected. I'd like to know more about this mention in your article:
"officers made 74 percent more community contacts in the first half of this year than last year. Not coincidentally, they are documenting more crime."
I have heard, mind you anecdotally in some cases and in researched articles as well, that over the last 30 years – the timeline that shows most dramatic decline – the "documenting" of crime has changed by police forces, as has their responsiveness.
Leading to some concluding that the reason businesses and individuals express that it "feels like violent crimes rate are up" is that they may actually be but the ways of measuring and engaging crime is distinctly different.

commented on TEDxSeattle: A Weird Mix
TED as a whole Jumped the Shark a couple years ago. But, no since in grousing about it. Almost everyone there has drank the kool-aid and is a full-fledged member of the Cult of Ted.
