UPDATE 08.14.2012: This week marks the launch of MOOC MOOC , and given the insane amount of content that's already been produced, we're going to hold off on updating this ongoing list o' links.

Imagined cities built from the fragments of real ones: something similar is happening in Tout bien rangé , a cartography-based artwork by French artist Armelle Caron.
