Offline, Anonymous File-Sharing Network Launches
Another p2p file-sharing network is starting in a public space near you. An artist based out of NYC has been embedding USB sticks into walls and curbs across the city. Aram Bartholl's project is called Dead Drops.
This offline and anonymous network allows anyone to plug into the network and upload or download anything they like. While the ports can mainly be found in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Bartholl plans to create a guide and enable people to create their own network anywhere. This is a small reminder that even if the web is locked down, people will still share their files.
