I came across these photos (via lemonodor) and little did I realize that there's a whole Flickr community devoted to such “composite photos” (well, maybe “community” is too strong a word here—more like a group of people who tag such work with “composite”).

It's not perfect, but as a “proof-of-concept” it's not bad.
Take the first sentence of the first entry of each month in 2004 and smoosh them into a paragraph to see what you get.
Sure it's silly. But hey, why not? Sounds like the results could be interesting, so here goes—the first ever, the Boston Diaries 2004 Year End Mash-up:
