Robin Grier at Cherokee Gothic (via danw):

The World Bank classifies countries around the world into income groupings (middle class, upper middle class), understandably using arbitrary and subjective cut-off points. I’d like to propose using Bill Gates’ wealth as a new cut-off point. 
The above map, courtesy of @Amazing_Maps, depicts in red all of the countries that have GDPs lower than Gates’s wealth.

Transverse Mercator projection (-Jt -JT)

Previously, previously. Also, I could probably knock this up in d3 if I sat and tinkered with code for long enough.
Edit: Of course, Mike Bostock already has a rotating version.

The NSA’s website redirects HTTPS to HTTP: an act of symbolism?

text 17:59:14

httpshaming:

Going to https://www.nsa.gov/ will redirect you to http://www.nsa.gov/, meaning that the agency has purchased a valid SSL certificate merely to transparently downgrade all their visitors to HTTP.

Apparently, HTTPS Everywhere — a browser extension that forces your browser to land on HTTPS sites for sites known to support SSL — used to have a rule for nsa.gov to fight the NSA’s redirect to plaintext, by continually redirecting back to HTTPS, almost performing a low-grade DDoS against the NSA’s website.
