Mar 22nd 2009 3:07PM Thanks very much for the excellent interview, Jamie. I hadn't heard about Pico and his writing before and his sensible answers and the wisdom shared in so few lines clearly show that I have missed something.
I'm trying to find words to capture the essence of a place, its' atmosphere and architecture, what it evokes in me, almost every day. If you will it's part of my job as entrepreneur, building a platform that wants to give people this possibility to tell and share.
However it's not an easy task to find the right words to express all of this: it's a function of how much I'm consciously aware of my surroundings and what they mean to me (much mental focus needed) but also, and probably more importantly, how people who live there interact with this invisible fabric.
One of the places that is special to me and that I can imagine writing about is Coban in Guatemala. A village founded in the 1500s, situated in the high mountains of Guatemala; although dirty and loud it's a magic place and embodies the contrasts of Guatemala... it's also surrounded by a rich fauna.

If you want to find out where all these beaches exactly are (and save them to your favorite places, if you like them or add a couple yourself) here's the list: http://www.tagcrumbs.com/Ben/placemarks/tagged/top+10 ... I've put them on a map... Enjoy.
Feb 8th 2009 6:39AM Hi Brenda,
thanks for the post about Tagcumbs. It's great to see that you liked the site.
We thought a lot about the name and I have to admit that it is not really intuitive. However rather than choosing a web2.0 type name with many vowels we tried to explain the concept with it.
"Crumbs" is what Haensel (of Haensel & Gretel, the fairy tale) left to find the way back home - definitely a place worth remembering :). And for the tags: these are keywords which you can assign to your places to organize them more easily...
