Dezeen helpfully plots upcoming Gulf architecture on Google Maps. Wait until this is combined with the kind of imagery coming out of Microsoft's Virtual Earth - check the flyover of Brighton shown on Digital Urban. Should be good, once places like Abu Dhabi get their $400bn worth of property projects underway. God only knows how Microsoft gets hold of its data - it really is remarkable. But the compression and - presumably - digital guesstimation that must be going on gives the cities a strange, Expressionist air, almost Gormenghastian in their crooked expansiveness.

A BBC news piece about Helvetica, now 50 years old. The comments degenerate quickly into typographical slanging matches. What is the collective noun for a group of typographers? A leading of typographers. Something hefty and obsessive-sounding / The Doorbells of Florence, a book inspired by a website / the Sceptical Cook, a food weblog / the San Francisco Emotion Map, a Google Earth project by Christian Nold (also responsible for the Mapping Fulham project). In SF, 'People go for a walk around the Mission distict in San Francisco with the aid of a Bio Mapping device which records the wearer’s Galvanic Skin Response (GSR), which is a simple indicator of emotional arousal in conjunction with their geographical location'. Mapping is really where it is all happening right now. Here are some London Pub crawls.

Snowsquare, 'Urban postings from Moscow, Russia' / Bird to the North, architecture weblog with a sustainable slant / Art Torrents, short films by artists / an epic profile of Banksy in the New Yorker, via Archinect / an ultra-interactive video game (maybe nsfw) - a solution to what the creator calls 'gamer widowhood'. Originally seen at we make money not art, but the type of thing that memes are made of, so now sweeping across the internet like a virus / the ongoing saga of the Shanghai World Financial Center, originally mooted as the world's tallest building, but now having to settle for being somewhere lower down the rankings, when it's finally completed. The design has also seen numerous changes, from this to this to this. More construction images.

Catalog Tree, a huge collection of art projects and infographics. We like Unpaid Diplomatic Parking Violations, December 1997 to October 2002), It is not going to stop, displayed in '43 different programming languages of the last 50 years', two familiar sound clips, a Mercedes poster, and more / Motel de Moka, an mp3 blog with quite a bit of nudity tucked away in there / I guess I'm floating, another mp3 blog / and one more, Shake Your Fist.

Dreamland, a tmn gallery of new photography by Marshall Sokoloff / Jerry's Auto Upholstery Shop, evocative image set at Intersecting Images / 3D printing inches towards reality. Is there anything we'd actually like to print in 3D? / The Tough Guide to the Known Galaxy, sci-fi debunking / the Priority Boxes Project, a mail art project that is all about sending nothing but an idea. Materialists that we are, we'd rather have something.
