GeoSkating Maps (http://www.geoskating.com/ ) automate the creation of interactive, multimedial skate-maps by using the Global Positioning System (GPS), Mobile Phones and the Internet. While skating, GPS position data is being assembled and published to a server through a mobile phone. At the same time the skater can enrich the GPS data with road surface ratings, and by sending pictures and videos from the phone. The server will draw geographic maps showing road quality through colouring. All pictures and videos are presented as clickable dots on the GPS locations where they were taken. (Even more, skaters can also be followed in real-time over the map while skating!)

"Masons, Tricksters and Cartographers : Comparative Studies in the Sociology of Scientific and Indigenous Knowledge" (Hardcover) ... argues that all our differing ways of producing knowledge, including science, are messy, spatial and local. Every culture has its own ways of assembling local knowledge, thereby creating space through the linking of people, practices and places. The spaces we inhabit and assemblages we work with are not as homogeneous and coherent as our modernist perspectives have led us to believe-rather they are complex and heterogeneous motleys.

A Map Larger than the Territory [ItiDex]: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/korourke/map/intro.en.html "Many of our waking moments are devoted to getting from one place to another. Although we often feel this is time wasted, like negative space in a graphic design, it models the "positive" moments in surprising ways." - Karen O'Rourke

The one question only solution to the fork in the road is to ask one of them 'which way would the other person say leads to the cannibals'. Which ever one you ask, they'll tell you the wrong way: follow where they point to avoid being eaten.

"It is possible to say much about the Tao, just as it is possible to make a map of the world. However, no matter how detailed the map, it can never be the world it represents. In the same way, words used to describe the Tao can never be the same as the Tao itself, although they can be used to help guide people along the path. After you find the Tao, there is no need for words at all.
After you find your place in the world, there is no need for maps at all." - RW after silvanosx@cox.net

"Think of the expression of an idea as a map to its meaning." - ?
"I am never absolutely clear what I am making a map of; but it always feels that it is part of the unconscious; that somehow the act of painting/drawing will chart a course." - NINA MELEDANDRI
"The most powerful thing you can do to change the world is to change your own beliefs about the nature of life, peo ple,and reality to something more positive...and begin to act accordingly." - Shakti Gawain
