Baudrillard has been disconcerting the western world by telling us that reality has been murdered in the late twentieth century and that we are becoming further steeped in a world of technological transparencies and simulacra. According to him, the simulacra is a truth which conceals a non-existence, so Disneyland, for example, is a simulacra which exists in order to make the rest of Los Angeles appear real.

We are interested in how people experience and perceive 'reality' at the turn of the century, which is part of the appeal of creating the 'virtual' web site road trip to co-exist with the 'real' road trip. If you have any thoughts on the matter, please let us know.
