Wired's Exacto Knife and Mainframe-style Maps Lend Zest to their Smart List

In what I can only describe as a pre-desktop mapping, quasi-mainframe generated, exacto-knife wielding style, Wired Magazine punctuated its article on "The 15 People the Next President Should Listen To" with wonderfully classic maps. The prism and thematic maps that support the article are excellently conceived and presented. The maps have a kind of 1970's-ish quality; very pixelated and reminds me of the early computer-generated map styles of mainframes. The article appears in the October issue.
