The Valeriepieris Circle

Well, I was really sleepy the other night and had the compulsion to pull out  Wikipedia and Excel and Gimp and draw a circle. 

Then it got picked up by the Washington Post. And Slate. And Gawker. And Gizmodo. I seriously should have hosted it here and not on imgur, and mounted annoying Google Ads. Hindsight.

Anyways, better late than never.

  2. Absolutely, Bruce. The Washington Post didn't attribute, so now I like you more than them.

  3. If it's OK with you, I'd like to use the picture too, giving proper attribution.

    And I hope this picture (following) that shows the world's economic center of gravity over time might be of interest too.

  7. Hi Kenneth

    Yes I'd love to use it too - and will certainly attribute. Do you have a high-resolution version?

    This one is pretty high-res: http://i.imgur.com/CK6aONG.jpg
