Its an extremely interesting example of digital archiving that recognizes the multiple ways we learn about cities - both physically and virtually. A hope of things to come? Putting our information and databases to use in helping us learn more, and subsequently, feel a stronger connection to place is an increasingly utilized concept already expressed in more mundane sites such as Citysearch.com. I personally hope that these experiments become testing grounds for stronger collaborations between planners, designers and media artists.
