Six URLs

Last night I somehow found myself wondering (under the influence of a few too many glasses of red wine) whether it would be possible to tell a story using only six website URLs. The conceit is that these URLs are found in the internet history of a single computer in a household. The URLs do not necessarily have to have been visited by the same person and they may have been visited over a long period of time.

This is my attempt. You have to click the URLs in order. I am going to cheat and subtitle it to make it easier to get to grips with, but I am not sure this is necessary:

Mr and Mrs Collinson‘s computer at 10, Elizabeth Avenue, Guildford, Surrey.
They are in their fifties and their children have left home.


URL 1
URL 2
URL 3
URL 4
URL 5
URL 6

Or you could do a War and Peace like epic of 1000 URLs! Or maybe I did have a few too many glasses of red wine. While I'm doing whimsy, I liked this.

Yes. I think this makes sense on the web. I was thinking about how to make it work on a piece of paper, but couldn't figure it out, really.
