It’s a purple world

All the maps you see of the US election results are sharply divided into blue states and red states. It occurred to me that since “a state goes for Obama” sometimes means “by nine votes”, that it might be interesting to see a sort of representative map. So, the purple map of US election results:

The whole country’s pretty similar in colour, innit? I suppose this is what Obama was talking about with the “I’ll be your president too” stuff… (map from wikimedia (svg), election results from Google, map as SVG, script to generate map)

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
