Yes, by all means, read it! I thought it was very good.


edward tufte (who's someone else you should read, claire, if you haven't already) discusses john snow's cholera map in fascinating detail from a data display perspective, in one of his brilliant books (i don't recall right now which one it wasy . . . mabye visual display of quant. data?) anyways, google edward tufte and check out his site if you haven't already done so.

and i'm so glad to see atlas(t) back! (atlas[t]!)

  • The books one reads in childhood, and perhaps most of all the bad and good bad books, create in one's mind a sort of false map of the world, a series of fabulous countries into which one can retreat at odd moments throughout the rest of life, and which in some cases can survive a visit to the real countries which they are supposed to represent.
    -- George Orwell

    Geography and space are always gendered, always raced, always economical and always sexual. The textures that bind them together are daily re-written through a word, a gaze, a gesture.
