Visualized “ping” of Nokia phones in and around India

Found here.

This image says so much, but I want to point out a few things in particular:

  1. The large, relatively sparse section in the eastern part of India represents Chota Nagpur, a continental plateau which is home to the Kanha Tiger Reserve. The reserve and its surrounding “buffer zone”, which span 363 sq mi (940 km²) and 412 sq mi (1,067 km²) respectively, are the jungles Kipling saw before writing Jungle Book.

  2. Above that, there is a dark band that follows the Indo-Gangetic Plain along the Ganges. The river itself can be seen, a faint white line through the otherwise dense data points in this lush region.

  3. North of the Ganges and its surrounding plain lies India’s political border with Nepal, and the physical border with the Himalayas. Beyond the natural wall formed by that incredible mountain range we find Tibet, which has the lowest population of any major land division in China, despite being the second largest.

  4. Within India, the blankest region lies in the north west, and is known as the Thar Desert. This vast, arid expanse covers 77,000 sq mi (200,000 km²) along India’s border with Pakistan, and includes The Great Rann of Kutch—the largest salt flat in the world.

Victorian Christmas card, wishing you Peace, Joy, Health and Happiness.  Victorians were very interested in natural history, which may explain this unique illustration.  1880.  (via)

Most websites treat “I like it” and “This is good” as the same thing, leading to most people on the Internet refusing to distinguish between “I don’t like it” and “It’s not good”.

Anil Dash, 10 Rules of Internet

I would add “I want to remember this”, “this is something I need to read again to really understand” and a slew of other not-so-binary meanings to that most reductionist, consumerist, everything-that’s-wrong-with-the-world, shallow and ubiquitous of shitfests that is the ‘like’.

Baby will cry no matter what. Also, you should ponder the fact you have a poorer command of English than someone with a different first language.
