The crazy folks at bt3a decided on a contest to design "maps that told the truth." The results - twenty or so pages' worth - are great fun.

Meanwhile, the huge Texaco road map from the 1964 World's Fair is disintegrating. Won't someone restore it? (The whole site on the Tent of Tomorrow is fascinating. I love World Fairs.)

Sweeping the online news this week: why are all the undersea cables being cut? The prevailing theory seems to be monsters. I'm thinking perhaps techtonic shifts. Or maybe Cthulhu. In that case, it might be good to check out the ways to preserve (or neatly wrap up) your online presence once you're dead and gone.
