Marshall Islands Stick Chart (via The Nonist)

In the spirit of “Want part of your brain back?" and "What to expect from me”,  let’s call this post “Birth of a tab bloom”.

As I write this, there is a window open in my browser that has thirty-nine tabs. I just sat down at the computer about a half hour ago. How does this happen?

A lot of my reading is automatically posted on Twitter. When that map collection was shared, Charlie responded:


  Those are fun maps, but what a strange title. I was hoping for at least http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marshall_Islands_stick_chart …


Charlie is right. He also gave me a great reminder. Sophia and I recently explored The Met and I really enjoyed the exhibits from Oceania (including Micronesia), but something was missing. Charlie’s reminder quickly led me back to The Nonist, a favorite blog that has long since been discontinued. The post that led me back popped up in a search. That’s the source of the image above: “Polynesian Stick Charts”.

All of this then got me thinking about David Bowen's project “Tele-present water" (I will post a video of that project next). Then it got me writing this post. Soon there were thirty-nine tabs. And I’m not yet finished. This happens multiple times each day.
