Spot the difference

Just in time for Halloween: Welcome To The Dark Side: Occult London, a map from Herb Lester. Sort of related, How Scientology doubled its downtown Clearwater, Florida, footprint in three years. $103m helps / What’s the Difference?, a newsletter / 80×25, on the origin of standards (via MeFi) / The London Review of Books is 40 years old today / Bruce Chatwin was the internet before the internet existed, a musing on knowledge and ubiquity (also via MeFi). Perhaps one could add names like Umberto Eco, Marina Warner, Angela Carter and W.G.Sebald to the list of quietly connective polymaths, so at odds with the way things are today.
