Graffiti URLs

Walking from Waterloo station to the IBM South Bank office in London today, I strode through the underpass by the IMAX cinema and noticed that someone had scribbled a MySpace URL on the wall. I think it was to advertise some underground music thing, I didn’t really read it.

A different way of looking at “tagging” – in the graffiti-related sense of the word “tag”.

It also struck me as marvellously stupid. Presumably the perpetrator had some involvement with the site in question. If someone wanted to crack down on graffiti and found a URL like this, they could simply pop round to the house of the people who owned the site and slap a fine on them… of course then we get into all kinds of discussions about doing this maliciously to incriminate innocent bloggers… sigh…
