The Street Hacker, Officially Embraced

In the following article Emily Badger makes some interesting points about what it might look like if we had a public environment which could respond more flexibly to public demands for change and alteration. Mostly this comes in the form of a more responsive government and flexible municipal code and does not reflect the sort of larger critiques that constituted the NYSAT event. That said a more involved public presence in the curation and presentation of public space is at the heart of the PublicAdCampaign project. If we had more access to altering our environment it would be easier to psychologically connect with the infrastructure and people around us. To me this can only lead to tighter knit communities.
