Protestor Tech

Here’s an interesting blog entry on some of the technologies that will be put to use by protestors at the Republican National Convention later this month. One that caught my eye is an internet-enabled bike that will allow users of an anti-Bush website to send text messages that will be chalk-sprayed onto the street from a device latched on the bike.

Another idea that brings a funnier image to mind is a balloon attached to a roller blader that will float over protestors with a digital camera so a more accurate head count can be determined. See, it’s funny just to picture that. I don’t know if the NYPD is going to let the balloonist/roller blader go, or just laugh.

    No problem! There will be a post on the issue shortly.

    Hey I tried to say something sort of related! …but mostly I’m wondering about Max’s and didn’t think it was worth its own post. 🙂 Sorry Sho!

    I think Courtney gets the award for “Segue Most Unrelated to Current Topic.” : ) You’ve got my vote at least!

    Giant rollerblading puppet.

    Hey what’s with this rumor that Max’s is closed?

    Also, it’s hard to imagine a roller blader looking more ridiculous than he/she already does, but I guess those fun-loving protestors figured out a way.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
