Giving a couple Canadians a brief tour of Birmingham

This afternoon, I met a pair of travelers from Canada who were traveling through Alabama on a social media experiement. Alex and Luke are two friends who have set out to visit every state and every Canadian province. The really interesting part though, is that their journey is being entirely guided by crowdsourcing. Through their blog and Twitter, they let other people vote on where they'll go next, what attractions to see while there, where to eat, and even what hotel to stay in.

I interviewed them for an article and video on, and I'm quite proud of how it turned out.

Alex and Luke are really cool people, and I wish them the best on their continuing journey. You can find lots more about them at their web site: If their experiment ever gets turned into a show on the Travel Channel, I'd definitely watch.

Update (7/12): I showed up in Alex and Luke's latest YouTube video.
