David Byrne Launches the “Reasons to Be Cheerful”

In NYC “cheer” is an undervalued commodity. With a news cycle that seems relentless, David Byrne’s new website, Reasons to Be Cheerful, looks to the brighter side. Via Open Culture:

The stories collected so far on Reasons to Be Cheerful fall into several different categories. In Civic Engagement, for example, he’s found a variety of effective examples of that practice in his travels back and forth across the United States. In Health, he writes about efforts to end the war on drugs in places like Vancouver, Colorado, and Portugal. As anyone who’s followed Byrne’s writing and speaking about cycling and the infrastructure that supports it might imagine, this side also includes a section called Urban/Transportation, whose first post deals with the global influence of bike share systems like Paris’ Velib and bike-only street-closure days like Bogotá’s Ciclovia.
