Yes, we do love TED for their motto ‘ideas worth spreading’. Thanks W-J for sharing this TEDxDublin talk with me on the Facebook page of Maps and the City! Spreading this idea definitely worked out well.
This talk by Aris Venetikidis was part of TEDxDublin in September 2012 and it is on maps and how our brain orders information when we discover a new city. He speaks from his own experience when migrating to Dublin, but his talk makes it very easy to relate to. I can eloborate on all the funny things he says, the great maps he designed to map public transport, but I won’t. Just watch the TED Talk when you find a spare fifteen minutes. It’s inspiring!
