Summer Vacation

It's too stinkin' hot. We'll be back in mid-August.

After the hottest June on record, the intrepid volunteers at Raise the Hammer have decided to take six weeks off. Our next issue will be published in the middle of August, just in time to start gearing up for our upcoming campaigns: the Kyoto World Cities 20/20 Challenge, a sustained push on City Council's disastrous Aerotropolis plan, proposals for urban development, viable transit options, and a long, hard look at the future prospects of suburbia.

In the meantime, we will still be posting articles to the hammerblog. Every two weeks, we'll send a "best of the blog" roundup to our subscribers, just so you don't forget about us :).

Thank you to everyone who has read Raise the Hammer, contributed articles or letters, or stopped us on the street and shared your thoughts, concerns, and ideas. Raise the Hammer is a labour of love, but the fine people of Hamilton make it very easy for us to love what we do.

Ryan McGreal, the editor of Raise the Hammer, lives in Hamilton with his family and works as a programmer, writer and consultant.
