And bloggers' influence grows...

Brad posted a design student's cool idea: a park bench where you have to pay to sit.

Tyler linked to it.

Now China is implementing it, perhaps.

High chance they heard of it from Marginal Revolution. And so Brad has helped to change the world. Up the Blogosphere, where we can't stop seven hundred different kinds of costly policy stupidity, but we can encourage very small changes at the margins.


  1. As I recall, there used to be attendants in the public parks in Paris who collected money from people sitting in chairs (the benches were free). Labor in China is now more expensive than it used to be in Paris.

  2. @pkd: Awesome observation. Any link?
