The Places We Live

Striking photo project showing slums around the world. I know you probably feel like you have seen a “striking photo project showing slums around the world” before, but honestly, this one is better. Sharper, more human.

Argh, I wish I could deeplink — trust me, you gotta skip intro, click on one of the cities, then click on one of the “household” icons. They lead to wonderful little 360-degree panoramas, each with wonderfully-translated narration. It’s completely engrossing.

I totally just spent all my recommendation points on M. T. Anderson, I know… but this is really great, too.

You’ve been bouncing recommendation checks all over town, RS. Good thing your web and your print accounts are separate, or we’d have to haul your ass in.

Haha, that raises the important question: How does one EARN recommendation points?

By taking others’ recommendations?

Do they simply accrue over time (like the health meter in certain video games)?

I think you earn it by making good recommendations, and by making your recommendation fit what’s recommended. So if you recommend just anything, or if everything you recommend is the greatest thing in the history of the world, eventually your credit wears thin.
