With Helping Change the World Comes Getting Locked out of the House

        Dead Drops, originally used by spies to transfer information and materials without the risk of having to meet up, have been re-imagined for the 21st century. Dead Drops are a kind of file sharing, but without the cloud! I trust that people will be cool with it for at least the first couple years while it's still underground. Because in all honesty, the majority of people are good, there's just the rare punk. Anyway, they are USB drives cemented in public places, allowing users to leave pictures or text, and read some as well. I set what I believe to be the first one in the DC area up today. for all you Arlington Residents, it's the fountian by the Clarendon Metro station, inbetween Wilson and Clarendon.
