How awesome is that?! Gratz man.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Just keeps getting weirder!
Today I got this email:
My name is XXXXXXXXXXXX and I'm a single iPhone developer from Sweden.
I'm a big fan of your PD Modern Compass Rose. So much in fact that I've made a small iPhone compass app using it.
Today Apple called me and asked if they can use my app in a commercial, so I thought that you might be interested in making your name visible in some way. It's not 100% sure yet it will happen.
I'm not receiving any money for this, just free publicity for my app. I have no idea what the commercial will look like, just that my app will be visible in it.
Even though it's a public domain image, I want you to benefit from this as a designer.
Looking forward to hear from you!

Dude!! Is this site just the best or what! That rocks how such a simple thing as a mapping challenge can turn into a globally recognized object. Congrats!
As a really silly/goofy high-school science teacher of mine used to say... "Neater Than Sneakers!"

Huh... that's weird and cool! I'm sure you're beaming with pride; I would be! Congratz!
I think, therefore I am a nerd.

Pimping my worldmap here. Still WIP... long way to go, but I'm pretty proud of what I've done so far...
This is really amazing actually. I'm continually floored by how far-reaching this site is becoming.
