Jonathan Coulton is responsible for a key element of one of my favorite games – the song “Still Alive” at the end of Portal. He is the nerd song king. This song is “a triumph, huge success” also!

Talk about an awesome way-finding system. This rockin’ signage is in the Eureka Tower Carpark in Melbourne – just be in the right position in the right place and you can see perfectly which way to go.

I peeped this the other day and filed it away with the Pulp Fiction classic. Then I thought, “Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place that was compiling all these?” And lo-and-behold, Neatorama once again pointed me to the right path. There’s a bunch of scenes told through typography right here.
