"[T]he great city is the best organ of memory man has yet created" - Lewis Mumford

If the city is a database of human culture through the ages than generative psychogeography is the query best suited for weaving unconnected facts into a logical dataset.

This is an example of the .walk software psychogeographers will be running during the experiment .

This experiment is Phase 0 in the eventual construction of the UGPC (Universal Generative Psychogeographical Computer).

// Interactive Generative Psychogeography
// Filename: interact1.walk
// This open source software is produced by
// www.socialfiction.org
//
// T = Time (in minutes)
// E = Exportcode
// C = Counter

E = 3
C = 0

Repeat

{

E = X

1 st street left
2 nd street right
X street left

When 2 programs meet

{

Exchange E

C + 1

}
