This bot uses material from the book The Fundamental Questions by Vicki Bennett and myself.
New book – a Collaboration with Vicki Bennett aka People Like Us:
Who am I? Where do I come from? What is my purpose in Life and what happens when I die?
For centuries people have tried to come up with answers regarding the fundamental questions of life. Then the internet was invented and these questions have finally been answered – by users.
The book The Fundamental Questions captures them in an inspiring record of epic proportions where every individual verse becomes a mantra of a mind-expanding collective thought. It reminds us, that one single answer is never the answer.

My On the Road book is being exhibited at Poetry will be made by all! in Zürich from January 30 – March 30, 2014 as first one in the series!
The exhibition is co-curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Simon Castets and Kenneth Goldsmith, with Danny Snelson as exhibition advisor and program coordinator.
Based on the novel “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac and Google Maps Direction Service.
The exact and approximate spots Kerouac traveled and described are taken from the book and parsed by Google Direction Service API. The result is a huge direction instruction of 55 pages. The chapters match those of the original book. All in all, as Google shows, the journey takes 272.26 hours (for 17,527 miles).
For more details see the project page.
