Missing links?

Winter is worried about missing links in his quest to every store in the Starbucks Coffee Co. chain.

The freelance software programmer with the one-word name told Wall Street Journal reporter Julie Jargon he's in a race against time because the chain is closing stores. He's been to 9,000 of them in the U.S. and beyond, according to Jargon's article in Saturday's Wall Street Journal.

Short notice about one closure in British Columbia had him spending $1,400 to get there.

All for a cup of coffee and a photograph.

He chronicles his mission on his own website.

Maybe he's had too much caffeine. Or is it just that I haven't had enough?
