Amusing Maps: Which one nails it? (Update 2)

January 21st, 2011 Comments off

So, back when Randall Munroe updated his blogo/social network-sphere map a couple of months ago, I decided to delve back into my posting of amusing maps floating around on the interwebs regarding geocentric ignorance. Well, Munroe has taken on the subject himself in an appropriately XKCD manner.

Updating Amusing Maps: Which One Nails It, Part Deux

December 28th, 2010 Comments off

A little over a year ago, I posted a series of some of the Web’s best entertaining maps.  These ranged from amusing stereotyped looking glasses of how people see the world to XKCD’s map of online communities.

A year later, Randall Munroe updated his map of online communities to include recent changes in the interwebs and I decided to go searching for some new, funny maps.  After the jump, I lead it off with Munroe’s latest.

The Best of xkcd, Part 6 (Geek Culture)

September 22nd, 2010 Comments off

If Calvin and Hobbes is my favorite print cartoon (and it is), then its online counterpart is xkcd.  The brainchild of former NASA robotics engineer Randall Munroe, it is a webcomic that mixes romance, sarcasm, math, and language.  Most of all, it speaks to the sense of humor of the internet and geek culture in general.  Some of it is obscure and flies over my head, but a good number of the comics just hit home and tickle the funny bone.  And, in the case of my favorite all-time comic ever (Spirit, featured in this post), tugs at the heart-strings.

xkcd also features a great online store with some cool posters, pins and apparel.  I rock the “Science: It Works….” t-shirt in my wardrobe (though it admittedly gets less use than it should).  Munroe operates under a solid creative commons license, so I’m hosting several of my favorite comics here, though I encourage everyone to visit xkcd.com and to buy the xkcd: volume 0 book on Amazon.
