Follow Kerouac's Tiretracks
on 15 February 2014
The literary masterpiece "On the Road" inspired an entire generation onward—not that many people seek to follow the tricky turn-by-turn trek Jack Kerouac's main character Sal Paradise took across the States. Now, thanks to German student Gregor Weichbrodt, there's a 45-page e-book with the specifics on how to do it. Weichbrodt achieved this feat simply by writing a little bit of code, which plugged all the coordinates into Google Maps. Remarkably, he isn't even a Kerouac fan.
