Creative Nonfiction – with Google Maps

I mean, come on, this is genius!

From The Rumpus:

Author Dinty W. Moore has an interesting tale about chance run-ins with George Plimpton that starts when Moore was an undergrad at the University of Pittsburgh and ends, decades later, in Baltimore, Maryland.

What makes the story more than just barroom conversation fodder is the way in which Moore delivers it; setting it out, piece by piece, using Google Maps.

Yes. Google Maps.

This is how art and technology come together. Forget Twitter. Love it.
