Some Call it Art

Let me start by making it clear that I am not advocating aerosol art on private property without consent of the owner, let alone "tagging". At the same time, I am a fan of aerosol art that is done properly.

I generally find the commute to work pretty boring, especially the walk to and from the station/office. I am always on the lookout for things to bring some joy into my day. A little while I ago I saw (photographed on my crappy phone camera) some stickers which I found pretty amusing.

Looks like someone has started an advocacy campaign.

I think both are pretty well done, especially the thought and skill that went into the "color your city" one. In the case of the stickers, I come down clearly on the side of art.

New Mac PC ads

Novell has released a couple of new ads for Linux which are a spoof of Apple's Mac PC ads. They are quite well done. If you prefer the ogg or mpeg versions. If you prefer the ogg or mpeg versions. Note: This is not an endorsement of Novell's products or its deal with Microsoft, just their sense of humor.
