This looks like an amazing project.
Project Bookmark Canada is a nationally registered charitable organization that puts stories and poems in the exact, physical locations where literary scenes are set.
I wonder what it would take to do something like this in Australia?

I did for a bit.  Not for too long because I had been playing Fives far too much for several weeks prior and was a bit burned out on that type of game in general.  Thankfully.

You have enormous powers!
I wish that Keri Smith would blog more often. I love her stuff.

'Hyperlocal' 'Microstories' 'Social Computing'
There's a lot of buzz words here.  But there's also a lot of beautiful maps showing the human geography of our cities. 
I particularly like the coffee shop maps.

I just had a brilliant idea. As computers are used more and more to replace workers we will have to start paying and taxing the income of the machines.

I am having a poetry day
Inscription for the Ceiling of a Bedroom
Dorothy Parker

Daily dawns another day;
I must up, to make my way.
Though I dress and drink and eat,
Move my fingers and my feet,
Learn a little, here and there,
Weep and laugh and sweat and swear,
Hear a song, or watch a stage,
Leave some words upon a page,
Claim a foe, or hail a friend –
Bed awaits me at the end.
Though I go in pride and strength,
I’ll come back to bed at length.
Though I walk in blinded woe,
Back to bed I’m bound to go.
High my heart, or bowed my head,
All my days but lead to bed.
Up, and out, and on; and then
Ever back to bed again,
Summer, Winter, Spring, and Fall –
I’m a fool to rise at all!
