Michael Lindenberger

19 Flips | 1 Magazine | 3 Followers | @placesmag | Michael Lindenberger is a former transportation writer for The Dallas Morning News, where he spent five years covering the intersection of politics and policy of infrastructure. What he learned was that infrastructure decisions made decades ago create the day to day reality of living in a city today. And that our decisions today will shape the future of the city for many years to come -- often in ways that at first glance have little to do with infrastructure. I am now a Washington correspondent for the Dallas newspaper, and this project -- Places magazine -- has grown directly out of my year at Stanford University as a John S. Knight Journalism Fellow.
