Somehow I initially read the title of the post as "the jazz trucks", and thought: there's my new band!

Also, I want one of these for my house but I suspect the landlord would object.

dfriedman: "I don't get the Ada Lovelace tag."

It's explained in the article text.

I want to go to there.

Also, yeah... why isn't it in color? I mean, yeah, I can see why, conceptually, the artist might want it to mark just charcoal on white. But I'm not convinced it has to be just that. You could do some neat variations by using a limited palette of crayons for the marking tips and different colors of ground for the walls, I bet.

I guess making sure the colored version doesn't turn into a mudball might be a bit of a technical hurdle, perhaps.
