Following the Beat

I got back into Medford last night around 5:00pm after a quick flight from San Fran. One thing that continues to amaze me is just how damn small this planet really is and just how quickly ideas let alone people can travel.

On the plane flying into Medford there were people coming from all around the country and the world.  One guy had just flown in from Taipei, another couple from Key West Fl, Myself from Cancun, another woman from Georgia, Denver etc. etc.

What is Local?

That is the question isn’t it.

We have created the idea that local is simply defined by our relationship to space, but what if there is no such thing as space?

Hmmm.. thats an idea now.

So Today I have been getting things very organized to pull off the master symphony of building the next issue of LocalsGuide in one week.

Its all a matter of following the beat, swimming with the current and knowing when to rest. This next issue will be very different as I will be documenting much of the process of its creation for greater deployment and emulation.

Plans are currently being created to launch an east coast version of LocalsGuide towards the first quarter of 2006 and it will depend heavily on a system to support.
