I've always been fascinated by urban planning and transit systems. Growing up I loved SimCity. Now that I'm actually living in an urban area, and even making an attempt to be a transit commuter, I've started to read newsgroups related to the subject. The ones I hit daily: la.transportation, alt.planning.urban, and misc.transport.urban-transit. Cool stuff if you're interested in the subject.
