Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.

@Ashpex @art I've never had Facebook as main communication tool, so when I left nobody noticed. "The only way to win is not to play". I don't interact often with many of my friends because I don't have WhatsApp, but my partner does, so I have a "human gateway" 😅 Most of my closest friends accepted

Chats that are better than Facebook messenger:

+ IRC
+ XMPP
+ Riot
+ Literally everything else.

"I can not understand Humans," the first alien said.
"They are simple," said the other. "Anything they encounter that moves, they try to pet. If it does not move, they taste it."
"What if it kills them?"
"Then another tries."
"How are they not all dead?"
"It works often enough."
