    I love the narrative maps. I love them here, I love them there, I love them everywhere.

    That said, I don’t suppose there’s a way to make them a bit more friendly to the color blind? Shades on the grey spectrum? Unique symbols with each color?

    Thanks for leading the Pack.

    I am color-blind, too - we’ll see what we can do! Some of the problem with symbols is that there are so many nodes, and the type of symbol starts to become a muddy mess of lines if you start using asterisks, crosses, x’es and the like. Shades of gray works when the nodes are nearly adjacent and the comparisons are easy, but two shades of gray across the map are harder to discern (at least for me, a protanope) than the existing, slightly wacky color scheme.

    But your observation is duly and empathetically noted!

  3. Got it! Oceania is not at war with Eurasia but East-Asia. Yes, this stuff makes a difference.

  4. Based on the political ads during the Super Bowl, it seems like white male politicians (Trump, Bloomberg) are trying pretty hard to convince us that they are popular with black female voters… Something tells me Bernie is doing better in that demographic than either of them. I love when ET turns their narrative lens onto politics.

  5. The narrative never had Sanders in the lead. Sanders never has and never will eclipse any of the Money’s candidates in terms of occurrence in the narrative streams. You guys don’t think you do, but you adhere to the narrative as it applies to any force that might concern itself with folks poorer your clients. Indeed you promote and purvey the narrative, in which case.
