This is known as the Dead Drops Project. It was designed to share files peer to peer and be anonymous offline. There is a readme.txt file that explains the project. What’s so unconventional about it is that a person can plug their laptop into a pole, wall, or building to use it.
If you live in New York, here are some places where you can find them:
87 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (Makerbot); Empire Fulton Ferry Park, Brooklyn, NY (Dumbo); 235 Bowery, NY (New Museum); Union Square, NY (Subway Station 14th St); 540 West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)
Although this may seem strange, these are photos of bear crap. It is a rather interesting fact that you can tell exactly what the bear has had to eat by what it craps. Apparently this bear is a vegetarian. You can tell by looking at its crap.
For those with sensitive stomach --- don’t go inside the post if you haven’t eaten yet :P
There are many abandoned buildings in San Francisco. Here are the photos of some of them which were taken by photographer Joseph Schell. Judging from all the graffiti, apparently all these places continue to have visitors from time to time although they have long been vacated. I'd love to visit some of them.
Manic Monday is ending with our daily stare. Enjoy!

roads! What a cute little car this one turned out to be.
“The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear took place on October 30, 2010 on the National Mall in Washington, DC. It was led by Jon Stewart and an in-character Stephen Colbert. It was a combination of what previously were planned as separate events: Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and Colbert's satirical counterpart, the March to Keep Fear Alive.”
Apparently, around 215,000 people gathered for this event (if you want to know more about it, Google it or search in Wiki…).
Anyway, here are 100 of the best signs you could see at the Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear.
