City of Memory

The Brooklyn Elite Checkers Club [flash] is just one of the stories on the recently released site, City of Memory - 'a public map that generates social interaction, personal expression, and collaborative storytelling'.

Because it's so new it's a little short on content but in the future, when every street has a story, it should be all kinds of wonderful.

Yeah, this site has a lot of potential. Nice find, tellurian. The "house under the roller coaster" (Coney Island) story is a good one. Professional production, that one, from NPR. This article is linked at that particular page as well.

What a great find, tellurian. The Brooklyn Elite Checkers Club link alone is worth it. Thanks!

Wow! I can't believe I have been nursing this post since around early May 2007, checking the URL once a fortnight and clogging up my feed with the rss of the blog. I really must reevaluate my online priorities.
