Did you find a flash drive yet?

A couple weeks ago I was scrolling through Facebook and I found a video about dead drop, which I didn’t know about. A dead drop is  a prearranged secret spot where one espionage agent leaves a message or material for another agent to pick up. Apparently there are over 1,600’s hidden usbs flash drive around the world. Apparently the purpose of using dead drops is to allow other to connect their laptops in public and leave files which other people can download, from songs, games and photos. Dead drops allow people to share information freely without breaking any download laws. There’s actually a few dead drops in the city : 

87 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (Makerbot)
Empire Fulton Ferry Park, Brooklyn, NY (Dumbo)
235 Bowery, NY (New Museum)
Union Square, NY (Subway Station 14th St)
540 West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)

  1. Wow! i found this fascinating before i leave school I have to go visit and try this out, just a little timid someone might leave a virus in my computer great read though.

  2. This is really cool! It’s similar to something else I’ve heard of. There is this activity called geocaching which is little capsules that can be found anywhere and everywhere you live! You can go find it based on hints and when you open the capsule you sign your name and the person before you leaves a little gift which you can take and replace with your own. There is a website and all you have to do is sign up to find locations and hints. I have to go searching for a flash drive soon!
