Nice tramway map, October 2020

My latest map for the Nice tramway adds two new details for airport-goers: the free ride zone and the travel time between the two terminals.

It also now accurately represents Jean Médecin and Garibaldi as ground interchanges.

The latest edition of my tramway map for Nice fixes capitalisation non-uniformity and the ecopark’s position, as well as improving colours:

Telegram is socialist. What’s worse, it filed suit against Apple for “antitrust” violations. I can’t stand this anymore, so I will stop posting to my Telegram channel. This is its last archive.

Telegram now shows a preview of the actual image sent rather than a useless emoji. This is what good design is all about.

The latest edition of my tramway map for Nice adds parks and gardens, a better designation for the airport, bold line numbers, and a few colour improvements:

I updated my Nice tramway map with a better design of the Terminal 2 terminus, more legible bus and train icons, and some other minor details:

Leap years are indeed worse than regular years: there’s an extra day for bad events to happen.

Interesting clock you have, Ros Atkins:

I never understood this sort of infographic. If it’s impossible to compare different-coloured areas to each other, what’s the point of the whole thing?

Just updated my post about train door buttons with better photos and a mention of the pandemic.

I hate topiary.

In January, I wrote the following:

As much as airlines want to make money, humans will continue being humans and change seats with each other. This is, of course, splendid.

Well, I’m afraid this won’t be true for the next few years.

One of the best things about watching movies at home is being able to pause it and think about what’s going on.

The words month and Moon share a common root because a month is a period related to the Moon’s motion.

Bad design: both sides are made of the same material. People sometimes rub with the side that’s supposed to be held. The eraser becomes dirty.

Good design: hard grip. The eraser stays clean.
