Geek Graffiti

I could have posted about the new Samsung mobile phone today...or the Google wireless network in San Francisco, but I decided to address something that a wider range of my miniscule readerbase might find interesting: Geek Graffiti.

In an effort to get around anti-graffiti efforts by city officials, people have turned to geekier methods of street-art. This article describes what are called LED Throwies...tiny, inexpensive LED lights that stick to metal sculptures, creating a very artistic "graffiti" like look at night.

I, for one, think this is cool. Does it cross the line of vandalism? I don't know...someone has to clean them up, but they sure look cool and are super-easy to clean...way easier than paint.

What do you folks think?
