Numan Parada has created a "Fantasy public transit map" of Los Angeles in the style of the classic London Underground map. It's a work of stupendous alternate history in which LA is reimagined as a humane, pedestrian-friendly city. Link to Map, Link to LA Times story (Thanks, John!)
Update: Jeff sez, "I did a photo documentary on the building of LA's 'last' freeway, the Century Freeway. In researching the history of LA transit for this project I found a map of SoCal's fabled Red Car system at the Huntington Library. You can see part of it on the Web site I created for this project a while back: In Our Path. It looks awfully similar to Parada's vision!"
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
