A pretty interesting video essay all about creativity. To cut a long story short: stick at it. No, really.

Agloe

Agole
This is immensely fascinating. Agloe, New York, first started appearing on maps in the 1930s. It was a fake name, an imaginary place, created so that cartographers knew when their works were being copied without permission. What’s weird about that? Someone saw the name on the map and created an Agloe General Store, turning the fictional place into a reality. Read all about it here.
