Description (in English): 

A science fiction story set in the town Derby in the year 2061, told through Foursquare. Fictional venues were created in the same geographical location as existing places, and the story's protagonist, "Girl X", left tips in the places, which read together tell a story of the future world. For instance, the university student centre has a double called the [2061] Pre-Freedom Public Service Centre, where Girl X's tip explains: "Before you're a free citizen you have to go here. It's kind of like school, but since knowledge is now installed rather than learned, it's more like medical and social public service..."
