many hands

make the work light. so they say, anyway. in this case, many hands make lightwork. this is a beautiful video by itoworld* of a year's worth of edits on openstreetmap, a magnificent project to crowdsource maps. each edit lights up and then fades out, so that the world pulses as it is called into existence. maps are the ultimate shared reality.

* as it turns out, not a navteq company. such are the perils of skimming attribution data.
