Cease-and-desist letter unlikely for transit map

I was mentioned again in the Toronto section of yesterday’s Globe And Mail, this time in an article on the TTC website redesign. I can’t find the link online, but here’s the paragraph:

During the past year, the TTC went from sending a cease-and-desist letter to blogger John Martz for publishing a satirical subway map — renaming stations with irreverent anagrams — to the new commissioner praising the efforts of Web developer Ian Stevens, who used free Google tools to create a GTA-wide map.

It’s great to see such a change at the TTC with only a change in commissioner. I’m hoping that it won’t stop with the website, but will spread to all aspects of the TTC from scheduling to swag.
