Trailblazers is a live web surf event where you can show off your PRO surfing skills.
No keyboard, no google, just pure links! At the event, the participants use a prepared computer with a modified browser: the address bar is removed and each click on a link is tracked by a counter. The goal is to get from one website to an other one by just clicking on links. The winner is the one who had to click the least links. TRAILBLAZERS is a project by Theo Seeman, an interface design/new media student at the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany. That’s also where the first event took place. One of the missions was to browse from http://imdb.com to http://thepiratebay.org, an other was to browse from http://web.mit.edu/ to http://icanhascheezburger.com/. The next event will be at ARS Electronica in Linz, Austria, September 3rd. Check out this video.
