Map of European leaders.

this is highly disturbing


I like this trend. I hereby decree that all maps be replaced with this highly intuitive system.

it’s a shame that francois hollande is the new french president because sarkozy would be fucking terrifying on that

Happy someone caught this. Three white college students avoiding the category of “African-American History” until there was nothing left to choose from is hilarious. Inadvertent humour.

Andy Hertzfeld on Susan Kare:

One day, I came over to her cubicle to see what she was working on, and I was surprised to see her laboring over a tiny icon portrait of Steve Jobs.
Icons were only 32 by 32 black or white pixels, 1024 dots in total, and I didn’t think it was possible to do a very good portrait in that tiny a space, but somehow Susan had succeeded in crafting an instantly recognizable likeness with a mischevious grin that captured a lot of Steve’s personality. Everyone she showed it to liked it, even Steve himself.

Via Priceonomics’ in-depth look at Kare, definitely worth the read.
