CHAMPION OF EMERGENCE PASSES. Keith at Liberty and Power relays the obituary of Jane Jacobs, author of inter alia The Death and Life of Great American Cities, a book that, in addition to being required reading for urban planners and those who would take issue with same, provides some inspiration for the original Sim City. (The latest version of the game is here, the developer site is here, and if you don't want to come over and play with my Commodore 64, there is an interactive version of the original.)
