Webmarker is based on GML and 000000book.com ("Blackbook"), a new website for archiving and sharing motion-captured graffiti tags. Tags are saved as Graffiti Markup Language (GML) files, which can be created with freely available software like Graffiti Analysis, Laser Tag, and with our two new FAT Lab iPhone apps, DustTag and FatTag Deluxe: Katsu Edition.
Anyone can easily upload GML to #000000book through our open API, and the aforementioned iPhone apps have 000000book.com upload built-in - download the app, start tagging, tap "upload", and see your work immediately featured on the frontpage.
Programmers & artists can then download your GML data and render the tags in any conceivable way, shape, or form. The GML specification can be found here.

To understand what "the web" is, people always came up with metaphors. In the 90's the internet was called "cyberspace", the "information superhighway," or more recently, "the cloud".
"Surfing the web" is a 90's metaphor to describe browsing the Internet, but what we want to do is skate the web. Street artists and skateboarders see the world differently from normal people. They are on a mission, and they have style. They see amazing spots where others see nothing but boring concrete. When you skate the streets, you use public architecture in ways the creators didn't expect it to be used, and a lot of times don't want you to.
You might get into trouble with security officers, but that's not gonna stop you from hitting that spot with a badass kickflip. People might enjoy watching you skating and start hanging out, even applaud you for the amazing trick you just pulled. In this sense street artists, skateboarders and internet artists are the same. Now apply this idea to your online behaviour and "Skate the Web"!
