This is awesome, thanks for posting it. I've been thinking of the Concavity/Convexity in terms of the concavity or convexity of the site itself - ie; the USA might tend to think of it as just a hole in the ground, even if it's become so full of waste and trash that it is actually a mound. But now I realize it's obvious that you could apply the same language to the territory redistribution - like whether you think it's a chunk of land scooped out from the map (USA) or a chunk of land plopped onto it (Canada)

Nice work. I always thought all of Vermont and New Hampster were gone.

Thanks for the visual. And the blood- or glitter-spattered Concavity. Nice touch.

I did this map a while ago: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8& ... d314ae&z=6

Mostly seems similar, but why did yours go so much more west? still looking for more hints to refine mine.

People would really ask questions if we had that map on our IS t-shirts. ;)
