It's Not Graffiti, It's Grafedia
Story Text:

Wireed carry a story about how a company called Grafedia are taking the concept of the physical hyperlink and turning it into a service, rather than a standard.

Created by John Geraci, a graduate student in New York University's interactive telecommunications program, grafedia is part public art, part advertisement and part subversion. It's also a newfangled take on old-fashioned graffiti.

Like graffiti artists, grafedia practitioners get out their messages in the usual way, by chalking, marking or spray-painting text in public places. Unlike graffiti, however, grafedia messages allow viewers to interact with authors using cell phones or e-mail accounts.

Heh...

..doesn't anything positive ever come out of these \, people? (intentional misspelling there - grin) My guess is that nerd-ism and "art" don't go together well.
