      A couple of interesting videos I came across today by coincidence
      while looking for other material, with the two brothers Peñalosa, well
      known for their role in transforming Bogotá's transportation system to
      something much more people-friendly.

      One, at the Streetfilms site (4:30), is a general short (4:30) clip
      about Enrique Peñalosa's recent visit to Boston and how Bostonians are
      inspired by his ideas:

      "Streetfilms' Robin Urban Smith hopped a bus to Boston to hear world
      renowned urban strategist and champion of the livable streets
      movement, Enrique Peñalosa speak at the Boston Public Library.
      According to our friends at the LivableStreets Alliance, who organized
      his four day visit, more than 1,000 Bostonians attended the various
      events planned in his name.
      Aptly nicknamed the "The Hub," or "The Walking City," Boston boasts
      the oldest subway system in North America and has the highest light
      rail ridership of any U.S. city."

      The other is a much longer record of an excellent talk given by Gil
      Peñalosa at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia in August 2008
      (including a superb mini-documentary - 10:38 long - about cycling and
      walking in Denmark and the Netherlands, produced specifically for
      developing countries):

      "Walking, Bicycling and Public Spaces: Experiences from Bogota and
      Beyond
      An evening with Gil Peñalosa, Executive Director, Walk and Bike for Life
      August 20, 2008, Vancouver
      Co-sponsored by Translink, the SFU City Program, the City of Vancouver
      and the Vancouver Public Space Network."

      The talk is divided into several clips. As each clip plays, it is
      highlighted in black in the list of titles that appear below the video
      window. You can skip between clips by clicking on whichever title
      interests you.

      Click on "Videos" in "The City Program Home > Resources > Videos > Gil
      Peñalosa" at the top of the page for a page with more interesting
      videos; the sidebar on the left also has many interesting links under
      the final "Resources" heading.
