The Institut d’Estudis Regionals i Metropolitans of Barcelona has published the results of the 2006 Daily mobility Survey. The research was focus on regional patterns of mobility and even though is all about Catalunya you may find useful information. I strongly believe in look outside our own, daily reality and find out what is going on in the rest of the world. Hope you find this document interesting.  The Regional Studies Institute is a great source of information and they have a section in English! http://www.iermb.uab.es/ Magdalena

text below form an email from Eldad Collins regarding traffic on the RCA signup page that is hosted by RideRotorua.com    Hi everyone I’ve just spoken to Gary Sullivan about the number of people registered through the riderotorua.com webpage. Unfortunately there’s only 15 people registered. Obviously we need to do something about this. Anyone know a good viral marketing strategy?
