In responding to a simple geographic statement by his daughter -- "Daddy, that doesn't go there!" -- a California father began Litterati -- a campaign against litter that blends social networking, photography, and geotechnology in a very inventive and effective form of activism.
Although I am still fairly clumsy with my phone, I managed to join the effort this morning, directly behind our house. I was not surprised -- and a little smug, I must admit -- that I was able to add some detritus from a local company that is set on world domination.
I hope to find other friends participating soon -- Litterati has not yet caught on in Massachusetts, and it is definitely not from a lack of litter!
