Dead Drops

Here at Neatorama, we've covered a variety of projects by artist Aram Bartholl. He has filmed people living out their World of Warcraft characters, made a giant Google Maps marker, and placed CAPTCHAs in real life. Bartholl's latest project is called "Dead Drops." He stuck five USB flash drives into walls around New York City and invited people to download from or upload content to them.

Ted has a point. It would be an interesting experiment to keep track of the amount of users that come along, and when an infected drive comes in contact with it. Not only is this a social experiment to real life SDI distribution, but the digital source ones as well. Viruses thrive due to human carelessness, and getting an understanding of interaction with infected sources could lead to some interesting information. I’m pretty sure those ports have at least gotten the herp by now.
