An example of hyper-local and real-time web

I’m on the number 1 bus, Mass Ave. from Boylston to the Orange Lime T. Checking Twitter I see a friend is at the Ben Fold’s show at Boston’s Symphony Hall; it’s on the route.

As we pass by the symphony, a mother, remarking on the un-symphony like crowd says: “who’s playing tonight?” She picks up the Boston Metro (journalistic dandruff of the MBTA and a very local, paper with arts & entertainment listings).

Nothing No news.

Contrasted with the goals of the augmented reality researchers I heard speak last week at EmTech, let alone the pre-natal real-time web available now, the vignette was subtlely remarkable.
