Hi Giles, I responded to you on Facebook, but I thought I'd respond to you publically as well. When I wrote the article, I was simply reporting the facts and opinions of my sources. I chose people with no reason to feel strongly one way or another (with the exception of Waye Mason, but an article on something like downtown parking needs Waye Mason). It's unfortunate that you didn't like the results, but this is what came out of speaking to three solid sources. It would have been irresponsible for me to introduce a bias that didn't reflect my sources' views. This isn't an op-ed piece, and the study I mentioned was a city study (not mine). This was stated clearly in the article.

Dash Hudson is an intriguing company, largely because there are so few companies in this area working in e-commerce and fashion. I'll be really interested to learn what their revenues are like after a year or two. Knowing Thomas, I'm sure they'll be impressive.
