Here at the beginning
of our trip through the city —

We ride. We stare out the window and at nothing in particular. And sometimes we talk.

This is the story, the ethnography of my year riding the bus as observer and as participant in the movable feast of urban communication.

Why a website? Because like the bus, you board here, you disembark at the next stop or maybe the next. Because even as the bus has a linear route, you ultimately choose your journey. Visit each link progressively for a traditional linear approach to the project. Or, start with a scene and read through some stories or trace a personal or cultural map.

Enjoy the ride. I have.
