So if you happen to be walking on the streets of New York, you may want to check out Aram Bartholl’s genius venture: plugging USB drives into walls. Each drive invites laptops owners to plug their laptops right into the wall, to share and download files. By definition, a dead drop is a location used to secretly pass items between two people, without them having to meet. Well, here they are. In broad day light, in the middle of New York, you can find them sharing things, oh so secretly!
Files can be dropped here: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)540 West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)
