Via my buddy Adam
A good reason to be suspect of anyone telling you that they “worked hard for everything they have” and so there’s no reason to share, think collectively, or even conserve resources. It’s all stolen land.
The truth comes out
When people ask me what I do and I explain, their response is often “cartography!” and I have to explain a little. While these programs do let you design maps, and I do design maps if you want it done right you need to talk a real designer. I’m not actually much of a designer. I’m the guy that gets the data and makes sure that things are accurate and at the necessary precision. This is one of the last drafts of the map that I’ll make for this project, before I pass all the vectors off to my buddy Dan who will then design the package for the speakers. There’s other data I still need to pull, like high resolution aerial photography for the image background, but until I get better at Illustrator (need access to Illustrator again) I’m not going to be much use trying to design a package design on my laptop. I should also take some time to track down a shareware design software. Knowing the internet these days, there’s probably something out there that’s alright.
Isle Royale National Park
“The last glacier receded from this area about 10,000 years ago. As the glaciers melted, they formed a huge lake which permanently separated Isle Royale from the mainland. Today, the coolness of the big lake (Lake Superior) creates a climate in which artic plant species grow.”
