Nate Haas mentioned in his posting in the introduction area of Cartotalk:

"And after having the opportunity to teach both at-risk teenagers and
geography/GIS undergraduates, I really do believe cartography's death
has been greatly exagerrated. I would say it's more like unmet demand."

...which reminded me if a project in Camden NJ, certainly one of the
most troubled cities in the US, where inner city youth are learning and
using GIS and cartography, both for community and paid projects.

Go here: http://www.hopeworks.org/

...and check out the projects under the GIS entry of the menu. Cool
projects and program, although they could probably use a bit of
cartographic guidance. Maybe I will see if Todd (their GIS/Carto guy)
can post the maps here for gentle feedback.
