Stories, stories, and more links about stories

I’m thinking about narration and narratives and sharing recently.

Bite – Felt Up, strange stories told via puppets
Why people love to get lost in books, a brief essay
100 books that SHOULD be written

Outside Lands podcast, history and preservation in San Francisco
Do You Speak Science, a blog about science and words
Trayvon Redux, a poem by Rita Dove
Hi, moments of narratives, shown on maps
Bagels and Grits, a just-starting-out paired-photo blog in the spirit of 3191 Miles Apart and Hipsters and Clogs
Hacking Teddy Ruxpin, exactly what you think it is
Incomplete manifesto for growth, a set of guidelines
750 Words, a site that is sort of a gamification of daily writing


Race and Ethnicity Maps, All in All We’re Just Dots on a Map

Here’s something good for wasting away (but not really a waste) a couple of hours, Race and Ethnicity Maps fromĀ Eric Fischer. He’s taken the 2010 census data and created city maps with dots that represent skin color according to where we live. It’s amazing to see just how stringent the color lines still are. Segregation? What segregation?

Contiguous United States, Census 2010

The Contingent U.S.

Race and ethnicity 2010: Chicago

Chicago-Red is White, Blue is Black, Green is Asian, Orange is Hispanic, Yellow is Other, and each dot is 25 residents.
