NYC Travel Time > A Subway Map Redesign That Works

 

Credit: Nate Parrott

Designer Nate Parrott created his own interactive subway map that shows you exactly how long it takes to get between stops. Click on your home station, and the entire map reorients to show you how many minutes it will take you to reach every other stop on the map. From there, you can filter by weekday rush hour, weekday late night, or weekend afternoon.

So many passionately expressed their outrage back in September when the repeal of Obamacare was very real…and failed…thanks to those passionate voices.

Here’s the rub, the Republican Tax Bill — now all but assured passage by the Senate — includes a powerful provision that removes the Individual Mandate to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), effectively starving Obamacare — and will have a very similar effect on the lives of Americans as a straight repeal — increases in premiums for everyone and reduce coverage to affordable healthcare for millions who need it most.

I understand that taxes are messy and there’s so much wrong with this bill (including screwing over Polar Bears) — but I’m surprised by how many folks are sidelining this time around.

Is it fatigue..you know…it just doesn’t matter? You changed your mind about the need for affordable healthcare? You like the tax bill? Magical Thinking? Waiting for the overtime victory that’s snatched out of the jaws of certain defeat? You’re tired seeing these silly political posts and want more cat photos? Done.

Oh, well…I guess its time to embrace our new Kleptocracy, Corporatocracy or Oligarchy…you choose.

Good Design Is About Doing Good

“Don’t wait for permission; start working, start acting…That’s what the world needs today. It’s about big challenges, big designs, big proposals but it’s also about making it really small and showing the beauty of the world.”
– Daan Roosegaarde
