Cooltown Studios is a blog covering the field of triple-bottom-line and crowdsourced placemaking since 2003. This site features over 1700 entries in a variety of categories, as you can see in the right column.

The author is Neil Takemoto, cofounder of the CSPM Group, a crowdsourced placemaking consultant for triple-bottom-line destinations, including primary programs Bristol Rising, Bristol, CT; Source the Station and Destination LI, both in Long Island, NY; and supportive programs Visualize Nashua, NH and Renew Hempstead, NY. He is also the founder of a few nascent initiatives seeking volunteers and contributors, including the Network for Crowdsourced Placemaking, a not-for-profit for the field highlighting all crowdsourced placemaking projects; and Micro Big Living, a blog and library of micro-unit developments and ideas.

Please consider being a part of these initiatives by contacting Neil at [email protected] “Carpe diem!” “Success is going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” “Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right.” “Be the change you wish to see in the world!”
