atals(t) points to a great map of Oakland at theOrganicCity.com that dots the city with a special kind of attribute: text, audio, and video submitted by lovers (or, potentially I suppose, haters) of Oakland’s neighborhoods, landmarks, scenes, and cultures. I love this kind of melding of (fine: mash-up of) humanities, activism (potentially), and maps. Just as I was leaving Texas A&M International University (I can say “was” because yesterday was my last day) I almost had an opportunity to work on something like this. Old narrated video tapes about the city of Laredo were donated to the library and one of the ways we intended to release this content was via a map interface. I was really looking forward to it, but I confess I am more excited still to be heading off to Purdue in August.

At any rate, enjoy Oakland.
