How do digital inventions change reality? How will we discover cities in the future? These central questions ­ and of course a lot more were asked today by a group of master students from the Goethe-University in Frankfurt. During their course “Geographies of globalisation” the students deal with the development and promotion of the creative industry of Frankfurt. Therefore, they came to visit us in our office in the Frankfurter Bahnhofsviertel. The most interesting thing for us was to experience how our idea of Guidewriting was reflected by our audience which, with an average age of 25, really can be called Digital Natives. For them, it´s just natural to share places and things they like with their friends, mostly via social media. So the idea of guides which lead to places that are not merely places of interest but which help you to discover a city exactly the way you want it seems like a logical consequence to most of them. Many of the students also showed great interest in the technical specifications and wanted to learn more about the app and how to create a guide.

Of course we hope that we managed to inspire our visitors to become so called local heroes themselves and share their favourite places with us!
