Okian Warrior writes “Aram Bartholl is building a series of USB dead drops in New York City. Billed as ‘an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space,’ he has embedded USB sticks as file cache devices throughout the city. Bartholl says, ‘I am “injecting” USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessible to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and data.’ Current locations (more to come) include: 87 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (Makerbot), Empire Fulton Ferry Park, Brooklyn, NY (Dumbo), 235 Bowery, NY (New Museum), Union Square, NY (Subway Station 14th St), and West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)”
