Street Memes

March 4, 2006

Came across this amazing interactive site which is sort of like a data base of the street stickers (like Obey, Space Invaders, Cliff Jeff etc) that you see popping up on sign posts and walls in urban areas. It’s called steetmemes.com. You can upload your pictures to a folder which is named after a particular sticker.

The idea of this site is similar to what I’m tryng to do with my wall stories blog, but way more technologically advanced than what my technologically challenged pea brain could do. It’s very orderly and thoroughly thought out and very easy to load pics.

And most importantly the name is very well thought out. Meme (according to the site) is a term coined by biologist Richard Dawkins to describe self replicating ideas. I think it’s absolutely brilliant to connect the term with the viral street sticker culture and call the site aptly steert memes. Brilliant!!
