Here’s a cool little something for the monday afternoon: ‘Dead Drops’. Dead Drops is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. The principle is very simple: USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessible to anybody in public space. Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data.
Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to for everyone, and you can install one yourself. To install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures. Easy as that.
Dead Drops are popping up all over the world, in all sorts of cool places. Check out the official website for more info, locations and images. And let make some Dead Drops!
I totally want to do this. I’m thinking of all the places in Brooklyn that I could do this to. SO FUN.
