Chicago 2016 Update: Medill New Media Publishing Project group kicks butt with GPS-enabled storytelling

Several days ago, I received an invitation from the Medill New Media Publishing Project to check out this year’s project. A location-based tour of Washington Park, the proposed site for the Chicago 2016 Olympic Stadium.

The good news: The tour went quite well, and made it clear that location-based storytelling could work under certain circumstances. The bad news: While the walk in the park was, well, not quite a walk in the park — rimshot — the technology is about a year or two from where it needs to be to be effective.

For more information on the tour, check out the group’s post here. (Can’t wait to read the report, guys!)
