This map has one black dot for every person in Ada, and in the whole U.S. and Canada

The internet is ripe with many cool things. We at the Icon thought this was pretty neat.

Brandon Martin-Anderson created a map that contains a dot for every single person counted in the last U.S. and Canadian censuses.  That means 341,817,095 dots. 

According to the site, he wanted "an image of human settlement patterns unmediated by proxies like city boundaries, arterial roads, state lines, etc."  So he wrote a computer program and fed in the information from the census.

Ohio Northern University’s Freed Center for the Performing Arts will present “Romeo and Juliet” by National Players in the Stambaugh Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 19, at 7:30 p.m.

This rendering of star-crossed lovers is set to the pulsing rhythms of contemporary digital society, where everything is shared and nothing connects, and takes the play back to its source while bringing it viciously into the here and now.
