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.”
