Election contemplations

Dan Gillmor’s eJournal blogs Another Kind of Election Map. “Barry Ritholtz has compiled a great collection of election maps. The most important message: Land area does not equate to people. At left, for example, is a reduced version of another useful way to look at the polling results. The Republicans won, but this is more evenly divided nation than the geographic county and state maps suggest. Barry has collected links to lots of other informative maps as well. It’s useful to have perspective.”

Several very cool perspectives here. I liked the purple map. We’re just not all red or blue.

John Perry Barlow muses “At least we might try to listen as though the other side might have a point. I truly think we all owe one another an apology.”

Is a Wiki under your radar?

Chad Dickerson, columnist of InfoWorld’s CTO Connection, asks “Is Wiki under your radar?” For those of us in the FoxPro world, we’ve had the benefit of the FoxForum Wiki for several years, an excellent resource and knowledgebase for all things FoxPro related.

For those of you not in the know, you’ve got to try a wiki! A wiki is an interactive web site where readers can add, edit, modify, comment, attach and build web pages. I’ve used wikis for knowledgebases, project tracking, Honey-Dew lists, curriculum development and even blogging. Wikis are available in nearly every programming language, every OS. You can make it as secure and restrictive or open as you want. Many are free and open source.
