GPS "Global Poetry System"

Thanks to my London based culture  correspondent @terriK for spotting this on the Southbank in London . The global poetry system gets users to record poetry geoegraphically tag it and up load . A simple but brilliant use of the technology

"Global Poetry System is a Southbank Centre project to explore and map the poetry of the world. It’s based on the idea that poetry is all around us, from gravestones to graffiti, from birthday cards to blogs, in the landscape and in our memories. GPS invites you to take a fresh look at where you are and find the poetry that inspires you. Photograph it, video it, audio record it or write it down - tell the world where it is on the map."

Global Poetry System
Personally I think its brilliant and one I think you could integrate with other technologies like QR codes .
