Friday Afternoon Time Suck
If you're looking for something to do this afternoon, try typing the name of your favorite author into this Literature Map and watch the cloud of authors form around them. I like to watch the names jockey for position. Not sure how they determine the map, though. Some sort of algorithm, I guess. Whatever it is, they ought to tweak it. Barry Hannah shows up on every map. Anyway, it's still better than minesweeper.
Happy weekend, folks!
