May 25th update: turns out that not only were comments disabled while MSDN blogs were being upgraded, but the three posts I made during the upgrade got deleted, too! So I shall repost them now. Looks like I have some CSS work to make things look right again too. Sorry for the inconvenience…

- @mrhelmut - take a look at Bando et al. "dynamical model of traffic congestion and numerical simulation" 1995. Many models exist.
- @BarrySkellern - "Critical Mass: How One Thing Leads to Another" by Philip Ball is interesting but not too deep. Some stuff on traffic flow.
Last but not least, @FieldsOfCarp suggested this Xbox LIVE Indie game:
Thanks all! Looks like I have some interesting reading in my future 🙂
