New York artist Aram Bartoll decided to create the world’s first offline file-sharing network. He runs this project by embedding USB memory sticks into walls and curbs around New York City. Anyone can upload and download data into their laptops from any USB hub they find.
The project received a name “Dead Drops”. As of today, there are 5 hidden sticks in NYC, but it looks like there is going to be a lot more judging by the inspirational comments on the artist’s blog.
