Talks from TEDxAlbany 2011

Doug Bartow -- from id29 in Troy -- on "29 Things Young Designers Should Know." (A lot of those things apply to non-designers, too.)

A bunch of the talks from this year's TEDxAlbany are now up on YouTube. We've embedded them after the jump for easy skimming.

A few have yet to be posted -- including Jeremy Snyder's charming talk about his family's search for the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. (We talked with Jeremy for a post here on AOA after seeing the talk.)

Now update with the rest of the talks.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.

787 is sticking around for a long time, but if you want to change it the time to start is now
