Things to do with googlemap when you feel creative

Lundi 16 mars 2009

Here is another post on writers, writing and a googlemap.
The site with the intriguing title « We tell stories« , which I found when browsing through SXSW awards, invites you to read 6 stories by 6 different authors. The site is branded by Penguin, a well-known pocket publisher, and I suppose this is a way of promoting their authors.
One story, called « The 21 steps« , is actually a step-wise journey on a googlemap. At each red pin you get a little bit of the story to read and by clicking « Next » the map takes you to the next pin in the narrative.
(I quit reading the story as soon as I saw that it was a detective, but I thought the idea was worth mentioning.)
