If I'd known about it sooner I might have, but right now I don't think I can make the submission deadline.

 

Also... I tend to be very weary of contests which seem to be a better deal for the organisers than whoever wins the contest...

There seems to be a lot of that these days. This one's better than some of the others, but what would I do with 50 copies of the poster?

 

OTOH, I'm a fan of the dymaxion projection, and the ideas behind it. But right now I'm not feeling the creativity I would need to pull something off. To me it seems to be calling for some application of big data that I'm not pulling my head around.
