A Russian Facebook page organized a protest in Texas. A different Russian page launched the counter-protest.

On that day, protesters organized by the two groups showed up on Travis Street in downtown Houston, a scene that appeared on its face to be a protest and a counterprotest.

Back to the future: Google’s vision for Toronto is straight out of the 19th century

Even if the negotiations fall apart thanks to Google’s demands or the city’s recalcitrance, there’s still good news: the most important parts of Sidewalk’s plans, the parts that would most determine whether the city’s eastern waterfront becomes a livable, green place that could accommodate Toronto’s burgeoning growth, don’t require Google’s impressive piles of money at all. The city could do it on its own — if it actually wants to.

There’s also this article from John Lorinc. The conclusion I’m coming to is that the plans aren’t bad – it’s Google’s involvement that makes them dodgy.
