Land8

by Fred Abler

It’s Sunday. Now that we can’t get the New York Times Sunday print edition, and the LA Times is downright anorexic, I find Sundays much longer than they used to be. The interwebs are largely dead on the weekend, so it’s a good time for catching up with family, friends and colleagues.

If you don’t already know about Land8, (L8) it’s a brilliant site for Landscape Architects to hang, chat, and share knowledge of their craft. L8 was started by Andrew Spiering in June of 2008. Andrew is a landscape architect (and fellow Cal Poly-SLO Alum) who lives and works in Sausalito, CA.

I really envy Andrew because he can go to Cibo for breakfast anytime he wants. It’s an amazing cafe/restaurant and they serve batch roasted BlueBottle Coffee – made right.  It’s Sunday, so why not read the story of BlueBottle coffee. (after this post please).

If I could, I would have Sunday breakfast there every week, and coffee at Cibo every morning. Last time I was there, I even took a picture of my breakfast (unusual) it was so amazing..

Fig 1 – Breakfast at Cibo Sausalito. Frittata $9.75. Eggs, Cream, Fresh vegetables, Cibo Hot Sauce, and creamed beans (with a splash of Marsala wine?) on toast.

I also envy Andrew because Land8 is a genuinely beautiful website. It’s stylish without being too hip, and it’s just loaded with Land8-types doing social media – the way it should be done.

I wish as a young man, I had had the gathered wisdom of a community that you find at L8. For example, this post ‘ Should I major in Landscape Architecture?’… with 80 replies. Wouldn’t you like to know what they said? I did.

In Short – It’s Sunday. Get yourself over to  Land8 for some quality multi-slacking. You might even win yourself some free One2One SketchUp consulting with Daniel Tal and FormFonts 3D!
