First we had Facebook’s attempt to rep the gays (just in time for pride) via their new PRIDE emoji pack, and now some genius graphic designer pulled together this Instagram account showcasing their interpretations of what they think could better help the lesbian community be better-represented within the EMOJI REALM.
Check out their Instagram here for the entire collection. Would you use them?

!! OMG, attention poindexters: The underground world of USB “Dead Drops” !!

Aram Bartholl, a Berlin-based media artist, has started a new way of sharing files offline and “underground”. During his residency 3 years ago at EYEBEAM in NYC, Aram started by creating the first of 5 “Dead Drops” which are:

part of an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessible to anybody in public space. Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation. If you want to install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures.

Since then, Aram has kept a comprehensive map of drops around the world, documenting the locations of each (Click HERE for an interactive more specific map). Check out a how-to video on how to create your own Dead Drop after the jump.
