Open Ski Maps

Just when you thought I couldn’t become any more of a map geek, I go pull something like this.  Openpistemap.org is another open source, wiki style mapping project out to usher the world of skiing into convenient online map format.  It operates using OSM data, but adds a few more rendering options in the side […]

In addition to eating my way through Neal Stephenson’s gigantic Baroque Cycle hyper-marathon, one of my ‘stay sane’ activities over the past eight months has been heavy involvement in the Open Street Map project.

I missed the exclusive college Facebook launch in 2004 and was relegated into the sparse hinterlands of Hi-Five, Multiply and even Friendster before being offered land in Facebook circa 2007ish.  Taking a look at the 2010 map, I see that I still have properties in Skype, the blog islands, Youtube, a vacant condo in Twitter […]

Super bad-ass maps

Strange Maps puts the cool back in mapping.  The premise pretty simple, if you don’t think maps are cool after browing some of these post, then it is fairly obvious that you are not very cool. Some one once laughed at me for putting ‘maps’ as an interest on my Facebook profile – ha!
