I’ve thought in the past that I might enjoy being a bicycle courier in a large city. New Amsterdam Project is taking two-wheeled couriering to the next level.

This is a good idea regardless of gas prices. An NPR story on the company says they aren’t turning a profit yet, but I hope they manage to stick around in the long run.

About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
