Weird Austin Idea of the Day
Chronicle art director emeritus Taylor Holland just tipped us to the latest bright idea for Austin's traffic problems: designer Michael McDaniel's Gondola's 'R' Us. Don't know what to make of it, but McDaniel himself says, “In my experience, products and concepts without an existing client are generally more difficult and take longer to realize.”
Comments our sharp-eyed and acerbic colleague Holland: "Comes off like an April Fool's joke."
The report is here.
UPDATE: There is already an Austin Gondola Twitter account.
