About Serendipitor
Serendipitor is part of the Sentient City Survival Kit (a collection of artifacts for survival in the near-future sentient city).  Serendipitor is an alternative navigation app for the iPhone that helps you find something by looking for something else.  It combines computer generated walking directions for movement and action in attempt to produce short detours and small slippages within an otherwise optimal and efficient route directing movement through the city.
