I remember this from an episode of "The West Wing"...
 
+Ronnie Boadi provided a link to an excellent article about the warped accepted appearance of our World: directionsmag.com/features/a-more-realistic-view-of-our-world/129763 . Our perception of the world is important, and teaching it 'wrongly' to everyone is damaging to people's views on the global society.

The Hobo-Dyer Projection: This is probably the most realistic rectangular projection of the globe - to maintain equal area of landmass, "the shapes have become progressively flatter [but wider] towards the poles, but shapes between 45° north and south are well preserved." (full view: moyakarta.ucoz.ru/rastr/anti-world-map.jpg)

The reason this map appears to be upside-down is due to the etymology of the word 'north'. According to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North "The word north is related to the Old High German nord, both descending from the Proto-Indo-European unit ner-, meaning "down" (or "under")."
Down, under. Not Up or above.

Modern society (and generally whoever created the map) has always made the Northern Hemisphere more important over the rest of the world. The previous accepted version, the Mercator Projection, placed the equator 2/3s down the map, elongating the north greatly. Larger landmass creates the illusion of being greater.

Blergh, I'm bored of typing, but hopefully you get the point I'm trying to make. Perception is an incredibly important thing.

Second year in a row that I didn't make it out to this. Will need to correct that issue in the future.

Google+ is pretty, but it still just doesn't seem all that useful...

I wish I liked Google+ more... if anyone sees this who is a big fan, can you give me some ideas about what's awesome here? How should I be using it? It would appear that originally thinking about it as a Facebook replacement was a massive fail on my part...
