This Metropolis article on bringing design and urbanism excellence to Syracuse is enough to make me feel that more New York transplants should return to the Rust Belt cities from where they came, and apply there all the energy and ideas that they've accumulated.

I love the idea of leaving books around a public space for others to enjoy and share (something I have always done when I've traveled - train seats, park benches, beach hammocks). So here it is, an official Ex Libris to formalize an International Public Space Library brought to you by the self-described secretive Momentech.
Not so secretly, I do wish the logo was nicer, but I'll take the concept. People, you can easily share your books without the label - but I guess formalizing it motivates people to pay it forward.
