Happy May Day! 

Happy May Day, everyone! The photo at left is from the 2004 celebration in Mumbai.

Today's SynCast is a real kick-arse show. Check it out!


Check out this interview with Freeway Blogger.
It's all about being able to get your message out to as many people as possible. To do this combines so many different elements, but the essentials are readability and duration. Duration hinges on a sign's Size, Content and Placement, though not necessarily in that order. The larger a sign is, the quicker it'll come down - the more innocuous, or less partisan a sign's content is, the longer it'll stay up, the more difficult to reach, again, the longer it'll stay. There are so many various permutations on this I don't really know where to start.

For example, I put a huge banner that read "FREE KURDISTAN" directly over a large Interstate in southern California: it was up for four days. Easy as hell to get to, but over half a million people went by, including plenty of Highway patrolmen and road workers - nobody touched it. A large "Bush Lied" in the same spot might've lasted 15 or 20 minutes.
Look -- you can spell things with stock photos. Cool!


Guess the Google is fun for a few rounds.

Today I'm listening to: Euphrates! (Wish that window wouldn't do that..)
