Carnival of Cities for 19 July 2008

Carnival of Cities blog carnival logoWelcome to the July 16, 2008 edition of the Carnival of Cities.

Yes, I know it’s past the 16th, but I was teaching a Web 2.0 Tools workshop in Austin this past week (with another one coming up on Friday, 25 July in San Antonio) and that crunched my time.

I’m gonna be tacky and just slap it up here, folks, so that I can move on, get your links rolling and do a better job with it at the Perceptive Travel blog next Wednesday, 23 July – entries due by noon US Central time on Tuesday, 22 July.

Then, the Go Green Travel Green blog was kind enough to offer to host the 30 July edition – thanks very much!

If you’d like to host the Carnival on any of the Wednesdays in August or September, please feel free to contact me – sheila “at” sheilascarborough “dot” com.
