The "Geospatial Technology: Mapping For Human Rights" in the current 
issue is impressively effective. In a lighter vein there is much else 
of interest and of delight to the eye.  --PJK

Based in Japan, this innovative and interesting site takes on industrial
design in all its many manifestations. First-time visitors to the site will
notice that the "Browse PingMag" section contains listings for "Arts &
Crafts", "Conscientious Design", and "Manga", along with a dozen other
topics. Right next to that section is the "Recent Articles" area. Here
visitors can read pieces like "Swiss Graphic Design in Tokyo", "Street Art
in Colombia", and "Yatai: Tokyo's Mobile Food Bars". Not surprisingly, the
site features a number of photographs of new design items, desktop
environments, and so on. Additionally, the site also contains a link to
"PingMag MAKE!" which contains weekly interviews with innovative craftsmen
across Japan.
