One thing I like about the planet is that North is not actually up and South is not actually down.
Another thing I like about the planet is that it is not flat, and that when you try to render it in two dimensions, you are forced choose what to distort and how to go about distorting it.
These choices turn out to be pretty important/interesting.
John, I have a map I meant to give you at VidCon but I forgot to bring it with me to the Nerdfighter gathering and then I didn’t see you again. It’s a map similar to this with all the countries the other way around. I still have it.
