How about bike said path? And mail, like, a cancelled postcard from each post office to prove it?

Probably been done.

The lower 48 (via ZS) vs. Big Cluck (via Saul Steinberg)

You be the judge!

Interesting. Then I got derailed into the utah cum morman debate and lost interest

Very cool - I'd love to see a version with more organic (less jaggy, less digital) lines, a truly scribbled map (but still preserving the data and intent).

It's very cool as a visualization, but I was lost on why he was so coy about the state lines. It's very obviously part of the Zone Improvement Plan's organizing principle.

So what do the boundaries within states represent? They don't appear to be county lines — there's too few of them — although they may be the lines between groups of counties. Anyone know?

Those are between three-digit zipcode groups, or clumps of them. Twin Cities, Minnesota has a clump for 550-551-553-554.
