While researching for a series of blog entries on my blog, The Chaotic, Fractal and Complex City, dealing with the plight of big box stores (the initial blog entry was, “The coming collapse of 'Big Box' and department stores and their urban impact”) , I found some interesting
viewpoints across the Internet, representing a wide spectrum of perspectives.
