Re: <nettime> Drawing the map of the world stored in our collective conscience


Hi Douwe Osinga,

constructing a tool that enables click by click participation that
accumulate into a coherent
image that relies on collective memory is indeed beautiful.

some relevant links:

1. smaller picture by Kevan Davis - a group attempt to recreate a typeface
http://typophile.com/smallerpicture/

here you are allowed one decision per letter and you cannot change the whole
letter
on your own.

2. MappaMundi Magazine
a collection of interactive maps
http://mappa.mundi.net/map/issues/

It would be good to keep an archive of the development of the map over time.

Best,
