Imagine a virtual billboard around the world. Imagine if you could leave anonymous notes on the places you like and trace a line between them, creating paths, stories.
What kind of storyteller would you be? Would you astonish people writing haiku? Or expose unveilable facts? Maybe you'd just prefer to follow the paths and get lost in the labyrinth of the intersecting lines.
