Kalakriti Archives: Rare maps reveal how India's cartography evolved over centuries In the 1580s, the adventurous son of a Dutch innkeeper found himself on a ship sailing from Lisbon to India. Newly employed by the archbishop of Goa, Jan Huygen van Linschoten was headed to the capital of the Estado da India Portuguesa—the Portuguese State of India—from where the European power almost completely controlled trade with the subcontinent. Decades after Vasco da Gama discovered the sea route to the subcontinent, the Portuguese colonial empire kept its navigation intelligence a national secret and reaped the rewards, leaving the British and the Dutch desperate to learn how to traverse the long and treacherous journey themselves. As an assistant to the archbishop, van Linschoten spent five years in Goa, learning all about its inhabitants, culture, and local life, besides the structure of the Portuguese empire and how it controlled the region. Published in 1596, the book was an instant best-seller and was soon translated into English. A dying art Plan of Pondichéry (1741)

Apple Fanboys, Android Fanboys, Playstation Fanboys, Xbox Fanboys… the web is awash with people flaming each other about their choice of technology. If there’s one thing they do agree on however it’s that the time of Internet Explorer is over. Hail the King. In many parts of the world however, ol’ IE is very much alive and kicking and some of the reasons why are nearly as surprising. Globally however, the big reason is staying power of Windows XP and its default browser – Internet Explorer. MyToshiba have recently compiled this browser share overview as part of their Leading Innovations series to show the disparity in browser share globally.

Interactive: When Do Americans Leave For Work? JavaScript required for interaction.<br /><img src=" In a continued dig into commute data from the American Community Survey (We already saw mode of transportation.), the map above shows when people leave home for work. Do we get anything interesting even though it's just one facet of the commute to work? As you'd expect, many commuters leave home between 7:00am and 8:00am. This surprised me. In contrast, commuters are more spread out between 7:00am and 8:30am in other areas. Still, fairly normal. Look at commuting rates during the late night and early morning hours. LaGrange county in Indiana, known for its large Amish population, also has many leave for work during the midnight to 4:59am time slot. There are early-risers everywhere but only a handful of counties where most leave between 6:00am and 6:29am.

✳UrbanSensing | listening to the digital city L'opéra au cinéma : vers une démocratisation du « bel canto » / Musiques - Concerts Les initiatives des salles de cinéma Pathé live : le Metropolitan Opera de New York en direct Depuis 2008, Pathé Live (anciennement Ciel ecran) diffuse en direct les opéras du Metropolitan Opera de New York (MET) par satellite. Elle retransmet les oeuvres dans plus de 100 salles en France (cinémas mais aussi scènes nationales et municipales). Cette programmation, même si elle reste minoritaire par rapport à celle des films, rencontre une réelle curiosité et un succès certain. Par exemple, La Traviata de Verdi avec Nathalie Dessay, donnée au MET et diffusée le 14 avril dernier a rassemblé le même soir 34 000 spectateurs. Viva l'opéra ! En province et dans les cinémas indépendants Le réseau CGR propose la rediffusion en direct et en différé des opéras du Royal Opera House de Londres. Du côté des cinémas indépendants, quelques belles initiatives qui valent le détour, dans une ambiance plus intime. Voir aussi la programmation de MK2 :
