This is an interesting thought experiment if nothing else?
How do you design a drone-proof city?

The dust is settling on Shura City, yet not a single brick has been laid. Since this proposal for a drone-proof city emerged, its creator, Asher Kohn, has attracted the unexpected attention of architects, allies and antagonists alike. I spoke with Asher and Hiba Ali — the visual artist who ...

Drone-proof? With cloaking devices on the ground. :) A second method: anti-drone drones (a "snatcher drone"). A test of accomplishment is a snatcher drone that can snatch a live hawk straight out of the air in mid-flight.

Fantasy maps!
I always love it when fantasy authors share the process by which their maps are created.

In the background, I’ve been working with artist Maxime Plasse on maps for The Song of the Shattered Sands. There’s been a lot of back and forth to get things from my very rough startin…

This is a great article about using sonar to track glacial melt more precisely.
There's also some wonderful photos.
Tasmanian researchers are optimistic their world-first trial using sonar technology to map Antarctic glaciers will shed light on how ice shelves are melting.

There is already proof that sonar fucks with whales...whales inhabit the waters here. Bad Idea. Use lasers.

This is a great use of animation to show how cartograms work.

Cartograms are a cartographic technique where land area is distorted to reflect a variable - in this case, proportion of GDP.

 
The true shape of the U.S. economy (county size = its share of U.S. GDP)

What means are used to morph the map? Point cloud interpolation?

I'm in love...
I think I need at least one of these - but how would you choose?
Using scraps leftover thread from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, artist Alexandra Kehayoglou embarks on a laborious hand-tufting process to fabricate wool carpets and rugs that mimic natural textures like moss, water, trees, and pastures. The carpets balance form and function and c

Small Friday rant:

I love my job because it lets me help people, learn about cool things and pay the bills - all at the same time.
It isn't 'doing what I love'. It's 'doing what I'm good at and people will pay me for'.

I love reading fantasy novels. I'm pretty good at it. But it ain't gonna pay the bills any time soon.

I very rarely tell people to do what they love. I do tell them to follow the interesting work, as much as possible. Because a job you love can be enough if it supports the life you love.
And I get a lot of time to do the things I love, without worrying if they will pay the bills.

I''m a big fan of the James Bond movies, and I've a lot of the books, too. The casual racism is almost intrinsic to the post-colonial (or sometimes still colonial), post-war and cold wars politics.

The post from the Afternoon Map spells it out and maps it out.
The map above features offensive quotes about the world's diverse people and places compiled from the various James Bond books. The article below originally appeared in Al Jazeera on Nov 22, 2015. With its most recent install...
