Street computing

On of those thing I spot on a regular basis in occidental cities (I took that one in Geneva last week):Left on the street

Why do I blog this? this is IMHO, one of the most advanced incarnation of what happen when you have "street computing" so far. As a matter of fact, it's neither the intelligent sidewalk nor the ├╝ber cool ambient displays. Once again, it's the dark side of computing. And for those who're wondering why I keep posting about this sort of things once in a while, I simply think it's good to ponder what I post here with the other "facets".
