Users Find Back Roads During Internet Traffic Jam
While the mainstream Internet news sites faltered during Tuesday's attacks, people picked up the slack.
Screens Column September 21, 2001, by Michael Connor
"...In response, Web sites of all stripes published information about the attacks, some even creating mirror sites for news sources like NPR.org so that more people could tune in to the overburdened webcast. While mainstream media Web sites buckled and phone lines jammed, e-mail also helped pick up the slack, in some cases carrying the first news to Americans abroad: An American in Indonesia for whom the only sign that something was amiss was a dramatic drop in the dollar value, for example, was able to get information about the events only via e-mails written by New York eyewitnesses and then forwarded from around the world...."

"...Meanwhile, compulsory trip reduction is under fire in Congress and may be
removed from the Clean Air Act entirely, eliminating much of the incentive for
voluntary compliance and leaving open the question: Will Austinites ever
willingly get out of their cars?
Big Streets, Bad Jams
Some Austinites may be willing to tolerate poorer air quality in
exchange for the smoother traffic flow that they anticipate from traffic light
synchronization and completion of the US183 and US290 freeways. But the bad
news is that more roadway capacity not only worsens air pollution, but
ultimately produces more traffic congestion as well, according to Anthony
Downs, one of America's leading transportation experts..."
Symphony No. I-35
Finally, a Traffic Jam we can enjoy, thanks to composer Steve Parker
Arts Story April 9, 2015, by Natalie Zeldin
"...But while the rest of us have been stuck under that particular black cloud, composer Steve Parker has been molding the silver lining. The result is Traffic Jam, a punny name for the eccentric but thoughtful musical offering being presented at the Blue Starlite Drive-In on Saturday as part of the Fusebox Festival...."
2018 Oscar-Nominated Short Films: Documentaries – Program A
Film Review February 9, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...By contrast, "Heaven Is a Traffic Jam on the 405" is about a woman finding a new lease on life and being allowed to keep it. Frank Stiefel's portrait of artist Mindy Alper pulls no punches on her own troubled history of mental health, damaging and inappropriate mental health treatments, her dependence on her mother, and her dysfunctional, possibly violent relationship with her absentee father..."

DAILY SXSW March 19, 2018, by Marc Savlov

I do, however, hope that you devote equal time and space in your column to lampoon the sprawl that is engulfing us ... or are strip malls, asphalt-ocean parking lots, endless traffic jams, horrific air quality, and thousands of SUVs with cattle guards (CATTLE GUARDS!!!!?????) your idea of utopia?..."
Steve Parker's Song for Bat / Man
For this year's Fusebox, composer Steve Parker flies a batty Austin concert with live echolocation
Arts Story April 7, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Besides the bats, Parker tells us, the shells of giant mollusks are a big part of the composition. "And funnels," says the man who's also in charge of the SoundSpace events for the Blanton Museum of Art, the man responsible for last year's uproarious Traffic Jam concert that included community participants performing a chorus on their car horns..."
Lessons from the Long Center's first six months
Arts Story October 3, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...No kidding. The business of motor-vehicle storage for the Long Center was a source of contentious debate during its construction (neighborhood groups fought for a smaller garage than center supporters wanted), but that turned out to be a tea party compared to the firestorm ignited by a massive traffic jam on April 20, when thousands converged on the area for Austin Lyric Opera's Carmen and Austin Community College and ProArts Collective's Robert Johnson: Trick the Devil at the Long Center, the Gem and Jewelry Show at Palmer Events Center, and the Austin Reggae Festival at Auditorium Shores..."

"...Twenty years ago, driving north from McColl, South Carolina to Bartonsville, Vermont, at about 6am, in
the deep dark of the early morning, we encountered stop-and-go traffic on the
Beltway outside of Washington, D.C. Probably it was to be expected, a traffic
jam in the still dark, near D.C., though not that close, but we didn't.
Starting out the trip in the early evening, we had been taking advantage of the
night, racing north..."

"...Topics for discussion include the forthcoming lawsuit, related fundraising needs, and an upcoming "Drive Away Wal-Mart" event to raise awareness of Wal-Mart's anticipated traffic impact, said RG4N's Jason Meeker. Activists plan to intentionally create a traffic jam at rush hour, on the streets surrounding Northcross, to vividly portray exactly what daily traffic could be like based on realistic traffic counts for similar stores if a Wal-Mart Supercenter is built at Northcross...."
