cowboy me, 2.0: jose nazario beauty and the street


zurich hotel view

view from my hotel room at sunset on tuesday, i spent part of the week in zurich for work. sadly i didn't get to explore much of the city. slept in on thursday morning and almost missed my flight. getting home turned out to be a trial, a si had to reroute my flights to avoid snow in amsterdam.

anyone who knows me knows i love topology and mapping, particularily of networks. i love looking at old map collections for inspiration. while they're not as slick as some of the current ones, they are quite attractive. i wonder why no one has cast the internet in one of these styles. for a large set of such maps, check out The Harvard Map Collection. i also remember a bar named the map room in chicago.

in terms of networks and cartography, be sure to check out these links:
