This is nice. There is an app for Dériving, the Situationists' way of relocating oneself in an urban landscape. Any good Zombie or Pataphysician will want to see what it offers.
Of course this means of (ostensibly) subverting the 'normal' relationship to the townscape etc. can be criticised - it might be that it merely gives the impression that we are hijacking the city. In which case, normative, capitalistic systems and structures would be quite happy. But if we are conscious ourselves of that possibility? I'll try it and see.
