Birthday Memee : Thoughts On Negesti’s 21st at Metro North - New Rochelle Train Station

Take a look: this is an original copy of the Handbook for Nonviolent Action, 1 of 3000 produced by the War Resister’s League for the World Trade Organization [WTO] events in Seattle, November 1999. Looks like @nerephotography has a pretty badass collection of activist ephemera!

From Boston to New Orleans! From New York to Chicago!  @nerephotography, who is hosting Jez, Ale, & Frankie of the TWM crew this weekend, has put together an impressive #Occupy ephemera collection, from as far back as the 2nd week of #OccupyWallStreet.

Episode 13- Maps, they don’t love you like I love you.

Download, Embed, Share…

I’m sorry, but if you don’t love maps, I don’t think we can be friends anymore. Maps are amazing. They are art and story. A representation of where we are and where we wish we could be. They’ve always had a power over me. 

Rebecca Solnit’s Infinite City, a new atlas of San Francisco maps, explores the poetry, beauty and arbitrary nature of maps to the fullest. The assembled cartographers, researchers, writers and artists have rendered twenty-two maps that tell strange and surprising stories about the Bay Area. Each point of fact and odd juxtaposition presents just one of the infinite possible visions of the city.

Ben Pease and Shizue Seigel were the main cartographers for Infinite City. They just released The Walker’s Map of San Francisco that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

Above is the “Death and Beauty” map I reference in the episode, and below is one of the more talked about maps in the atlas: Monarchs and Queens. This map pinpoints the queer public spaces in the city along with drawings of all the butterfly species that call San Francisco home (at least seasonally).

This is final 99% Invisible of the season. I may be uploading more audio from stories past, as well as outtakes from the season 1 to bridge the gap between now and when new episodes arrive, so stay tuned. I’m going to be making the case for a second season to funders and supporters, so please spread the word, “like” the show on facebook, tweet (I’m @romanmars, BTW), link to the show in your blog, and subscribe to the podcast. Every little bit helps. I’d love to keep making new shows.
