They Tell Stories

Charles Cumming's The 21 Steps supports my thesis that not only is one location not enough to tell a story, one narrative or analytical chunk is not enough to tell a story. Entries and placemarks are cheap: break that story up and serialize it.

Google's LatLong Blog caught this and Andrew Turner suggested the "Choose Your Own Adventure" model would be an improvement over an already very intreguing idea. Personally, I was impressed at how the map interactions really added a great deal of anticipation, sense of urgency, and understanding of space & effort. The story itself without the map would be rather forgetable, however with it the story becomes alive and worth another read or two.
