Thing that made my day:
My psychosis, my bicycle, and I : the self-organization of madness
by Fritz B. Simon
translated from the German by Sally and Bernd Hofmeister

Not the book, just the title.

I am on my spring break.
It is the only official break the whole semester.
And I am spending 40 hours of it cleaning up old, dusty maps at my library job.

Oh, and listen to onetake 009 a few times if you haven't already.

I have what I think is potentially a really neat idea for a map I'd love to discuss with you. I was talking with someone about how in Southern California, because of traffic, one thinks about the measure between two locations in terms of time, rather than distance. A map rescaled by time between locations as opposed to distance between locations would be really interesting.

Additionally, because traffic levels change during the day, the time between point A and point B changes, so people are actually carrying around a time-dependent, rather than fixed-distance mental picture of the region. It'd be fascinating to create an animation of a travel-time-scaled map of an area and see how it evolves in time.

it's a great idea.
and right up my alley.

i am starting to work with someone who is doing the school bus network for the county. i will keep this in mind. GRASS is supposed to have good network simulation, by the way.

also, the good people at caltrans or latrans or whatever have probably already done it with your tax dollars if you want to write them and ask.

of course, i am always up for rediscovering wheels.

You're forgetting the hallowed and sacred day of Cesar Chavez.
