visualize whirled peas

I was going to go to NYC this weekend, to visit George and hang out at the “GNOME conference”:http://www.nylxs.com/events/gnome/, relax a little, you know. Earlier this week, though, I decided that I’m not really sufficiently back to my usual self to engage in high-density travel, so I cancelled those plans. I was looking forward to seeing all those crazy folks, but I think this was the right decision. There’s always the new year, and suchlike.

Apropos nothing whatsoever, I think Madhava and Beltzner will appreciate “this visualization of election results”:http://www.style.org/mappingvotes/. Don’t you?

    Indeed, I do approve, sir, and I imagine that Edward Tufte would, too. The enhanced and more accurate maps reveal the sad truth – the Gubernator was elected by a strong turnout of extremely stupid voters in northern California. Or, perhaps, voters who were so PO’d at San Fransisco and LA that they elected Aaaarnold and then hightailed it to Washington.

    Hey – did you also get there by following the link from /. to the article that estimates the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?

    No, I got there from following a link to that article from the volokh conspiracy.
