- 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.

- Fenty Opens Up—A Little – On Congress and Guns: “What we have to decide in the District of Columbia is, do we take the momentum of the voting rights lobbying and do we say we’re going to have that and not let anything get in our way and then work hard to take off any non-germane amendments? I think that over the past decade there have been a lot less negative things put on our budget…it keeps going down, except for guns. Guns, from what I’ve seen, is the one issue where actually there’s more interference…which is an instructive thing to note if it’s true because it just means that no matter what happens with this voting rights bill, there’s going to be interference by the gun lobby on some other bill that we have going through Congress, not just this year but next year.”
- Dan Funderburgh : This is how wallpaper is made – I would love to make wallpaper out of my Geospatial Art.

- It’s Really Simple; Be Valuable and You Will Be Valued – the paradox of this, of course, is finding or estimating one's self-worth.
- Google Reader starts a conversation – You can now comment on my Shared Items from Google Reader…
- Who killed the electric grid? – How many extra power plants do we need to build if we introduce electric cars on a large scale? According to ecotech advocates, that matter is solved: none. Electric vehicles can be charged at night.
Many power plants have a surplus of energy during the night ("off-peak production capacity") because demand is low and generators keep spinning. Therefore, if we all start driving electric cars, oil consumption will plummet to zero and electricity production will remain the same.
However, not all electric vehicles will be charged at night – and it takes a surprisingly small amount of fast-charging cars during peak hours to take the electricity infrastructure down.
- Why We Immunize – details on the most common immunizations: Hepatitis B, Polio, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Tetanus, Haemophilus influenzae type B, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, and Chicken Pox…. Makes me want to get re-immunized!

- The Balloon Project: Amsterdam and Berlin Aerial Imagery – The Balloon Project is charming in its simplicity – Luca and Ira send a video camera up into the sky hanging from helium balloons chasing it from below on bikes – and the results are fantastic.
- The Guardian Open Platform – The Guardian announced the launch of The Guardian Open Platform, a suite of services designed to give access for developers to Guardian content. Of course, this follows hot on the heels of The New York Times’ API releases, but where is the Washington Post?

- AE11: New Wave Bunkers – "Another recently completed New Wave Bunker is the United States Capitol Visitor Center (CVC), an over-budget and long-delayed entrance on the east side of the Capitol Building in Washington, DC. Plans for the large 580,000-sf (54,000-sm) complex actually started before September 11, though the decision to bury it three stories underground may have come about from the attacks on that day, not just as goals to be invisible and to not structurally disturb the 140-year old building."
