Two Square Meters of Sunlight = Death Ray

Maybe not a death ray actually, but definitely a death spot.

Physical Peer to Physical Peer

It’s called Dead Drops.

Hey guy, what the hell are you doing?

Oh.

‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and date. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project.

Home Made Laminar Jet

Wikipedia tells us that laminar flow:

“occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers.”

“In nonscientific terms laminar flow is ‘smooth,’ while turbulent flow is ‘rough.'”

Smooth is right.
