The electronic dead drop for the USB age | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Would you stick your computer into a public wall for the sake of art?

I just love this idea. Sure you’ll need to make sure that your virus protection is up to date, and be aware of trojans, but the simplicity is what attracts me to it

It’s called “Dead Drops” and is an art installation project by Aram Bartholl. he’s left some USB memory sticks around New York, for people to use as a communal sharing and socialising point.

You are invited to go to these places (so far 5) 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 contains a readme.txt file

Can we have this in the UK please?
