Mapblogging IV

Part of the idea behind Tyler Cassity's Hollywood Forever Cemetery is to outfit graveyards with local area networks that would enable visitors to prowl the grounds equipped with a handheld that brings up still and video images of the deceased. The cemetery's funeral chapel is set up to host Webcasts of services, and the interactive Library of Lives can help surviving family members create LifeStories that bridge video tributes and photo albums. Reminds me of something out of Claudia O'Keefe's Black Snow Days, but why relegate this to the dead -- why not mapblog and document the living?
