Bike Map Press Release

December 3, 2008 § Leave a comment

One of these days I’ll get around to writing a proper post about my summer fellowship project [update: I finally posted about it on my portfolio site], but for now, I’ll just mention that IU put up a press release about it today!

The basic story is that I spent the summer researching bicycling for transportation and then created what I would call a “first generation” bike map of the City of Bloomington using the Google Maps API. I learned an incredible amount during the project — I’ll give more details in a few weeks when the semester is over and things start to calm down a little around this place.


Opting in, opting out

In honor of the craziness today surrounding Microsoft’s opt-in IE8 rendering announcement, I bring you an opt-in/opt-out comparison list.

Things that should be opt-in:

  • Junk mail
  • Pesticides in my food
  • Appendage severing

Things that are better as opt-out:

  • A free, delicious cookie served at 2 p.m. daily
  • Organ donation
  • Having the web page you designed render in the newest version of IE

OMG, I almost forgot about Blue Beanie Day!

I just got this pic in under the wire. I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating — thank you, web standards!

Where Am I?
