an into to the flatvista project

in 2007, noneck noel ventured around the world to connect with the bits between us all and live a life without walls. in 2009, he found another friend who claims to help one live a life without walls. so he’s sending his rock star friend – an unopened, unadulterated, misunderstood copy of Vista Ultimate – for the ultimate life without walls experience – a no holds bars 444 day journey around the world.

originally shunned by it’s owner for being a “bad copy” and society as flawed, flatvista seeks social acceptance beyond the scope of just being software. it wants to live up to the dream of a life without walls. accompanied by a blank moleskine journal, the “Ultimate” software experience wants to take it’s misunderstandings, personality flaws, and put itself to good use. 

starting at the end of February, a wrapped flatvista will travel for 444 days in an attempt to circumnavigate the globe and visit all seven continents. for every day of the journey, hosts are requested to fill out one page of the accompanied moleskine journal, take photos and shoot videos. the best content will be published to

from the mountain tops to the strip clubs – this will truly be the ultimate software experience! join our troubleshooting group and help us out.
