CityMaps is an interactive going out map service– something like a crowdsourced cross between google maps and yelp. Personally I found it to be a disturbing reminder of how surrounded we are by corporations and logos. For a fun game, see how many Starbucks logos you can fit in one screen – my record is eight, below. Currently available for NYC, San Francisco, and Austin.

Yes, how disturbing to be surrounded by all these corporations! We’d be so much better without the products and services they provide. Remember, you’re corrupted by their evil a little bit more every time you look at their logos, so make sure to close your eyes tight every time you drive through commercial areas. It’s the only way to make sure you’re not disturbed by their logos.
