    “a a digital camera?” So, do I need one or two digital cameras, then?

    I’m all for this if it can be used to address big-business wrongdoing and bad corporate behavior.

    On a related note, several years ago a guy named Richard Ankrom placed his own freeway sign at an interchange since it was poorly signposted. The authorities got pissed off, but they decided to inspect it and leave it since it was just what was needed: [ankrom.org]

    If you don’t want anyone to read your sign, that’s a great design to utilize.

    @timmus: I remember that, and yes, only LA natives knew that the 5N freeway was even there before his “prank.”

    The dearth of LA transplants thank him.

    A friend of mine wanted to do something like this. He wanted to print up a big sign reading “Future site of Super Wal-Mart” and put it in the Boston Common.
