Updates to The Vanishing Automobile
As a service to readers of The Vanishing Automobile and
Other Urban Myths, we provided regular updates to information in the book. However,
the Vanishing Automobile updates emails ceased at the end of 2006.
For 2007, we are providing updates to the book through our Antiplanner blog. We still send occasional announcements to the updates
list, mostly dealing with conferences and new reports. If you would
like to be added to this list or have comments on these updates,
