Encouragement to be a tourist in your own city

Tubemap.org is a project to get people in cities to contribute to a better shared understanding of the city they live in. Take a trip to a Tube station you’ve never been to, take notes and photos of what you find, and then post to the site.

A great idea, but lacking something in the execution. The website’s a bit hard to navigate, and some of the content contributed doesn’t do what is asked. Still, nice collision of social software and the real world.
