Dead Drops

The idea behind this is having USB ports embedded into concrete walls and people can walk up and connect with them and put up files that they want others to see. This allows for a community file sharing system. This started in New York City and only five were posted. Many people have wanted this to come to other places, especially Atlanta, Georgia. We chose this because we believe this is a great idea and it would allow people to feed off others ideas and develop them further. We think there are great ideas out there and this could be a great start to getting them out into the public.

Negotiations:

– People sharing files/ideas with other people

The Dead Drops project allows the community to share personal files with one another. Not only this but people are also able to share ideas through the dead drops that can be found around the nation. It can also be seen as a more active form of Peer to Peer file sharing system. However, there is the issue of misusage of copyrighted files and of the dead drops themselves.

-Environment and people

Through the Dead Drops project people can learn more about their surroundings. In trying to share an idea, people are forced to go to the dead drops locations in order to put their files inside the usb drives. This also provides a sort of entertainment for those who are truly amused by the idea behind the project.

Some more Negotiations to think about would involve:

clean files vs the spread of virus’ and illegal documents

easy access vs the ambiguity of other dead drops

legally placing drops vs destroying property when placing dead drops

I like both of your topics unfortunately I feel that both your proposals need a lot of improvement. I can’t tell that you have seriously thought through your negotiations (the most important aspect of this entire project). I’ll approve this topic and give you the opportunity to update this post by no later then Sunday at midnight in order to improve your grade.
