These are my shared links for April 8th

  • Making Advocacy & Humanitarian Maps – What map does not advocate, or argue for something? We are always calling maps to our aid. Three free books on maps and advocacy have been made available for download recently, and are worth a look.
  • Food Decorating Pen – cupcake lovers take note!
  • Manhattan Euro – Artist Ronald van Tienhoven (1956) captured the dynamics of 400 years of Netherlands-Manhattan in his design of the Manhattan fiver. The front side shows, next the a coin-in-coin likeness of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, the precise structures of Manhattan in 2009. Thanks to modern technology, the artist was able to minutely depict Southern Manhattan in 3D. On the back side you can see and feel the landscape of Manhattan in 1609, represented faithfully thanks to scientific research by the Wildlife Conservation Society of New York.

  • Earth Hour 2009 – Click on the images to see what it looks like without (some) electricity.
  • 270 – Palestine’s Island Paradise, Now With a Word from its Creator – Mr Boussac took advantage of the resulting archipelago effect “to use typical tourist maps codes (mainly icons) to sharpen the contrast between the fantasies raised by seemingly paradise-like islands and the Palestinian Territories grim reality.” The map does have a strong vacationy vibe to it – but whether that is because of the archipelago-shaped subject matter, or due to the cheerful colour scheme is a matter for debate.
