I am so tired of the "man hacked google maps with 99 smartphones" story being shared again and again. I simply don't get what is so interesting about it. Of course it works. We always knew that. It's not a hack. It's not particularly clever. And as an art project I find it incredibly boring.

@splitbrain I get that. There's so much (repeated) exposition and uncovering of how stuff works, and I'd rather be interested in that knowledge be used to build something, instead of presented as new again and again.
