A $ Hyperlink…Where’s George?

Our world is full of hyperlinks, hashtags, tweets, text messages by the score, IM communications etc.,etc….all current forms of communication in our virtual world.   Here is an example of how someone has used a “real world” dollar bill as an entrance or portal to following the “travels” of a dollar bill on the Internet as it circulates around the country. Of course the success of the tracking depends upon people noticing the link on the bill and reporting it on the web site.

The link was interesting, to say the least…Emoji   http://www.wheresgeorge.com/

I obtained the bill as part of my change at Peet’s Coffee in Petaluma this May. According to WheresGeorge , the bill was registered on their web site on August 7, 2012 in Sacramento, CA.  Thereafter it most likely passed through many hands without notice until I received it here in Petaluma in May of this year and decided to check it out!

Whether there will be any further reporting on this particular bill will depend upon whether I return it to circulation or simply leave it on my dresser!!
