Inuit Cartography
In Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), the Inuit people are known for carving portable maps out of driftwood to be used while navigating coastal waters. These pieces, which are small enough to be carried in a mitten, represent coastlines in a continuous line, up one side of the wood and down the other. The maps are compact, buoyant, and can be read in the dark.

interesting idea; extend "cd" to track which directories you cd to most frequently, then add a command to "jump" to the most-frequently used one which matches a substring you specify
