Courtesy of a post by Jeff Pulver on Facebook, hopefully while he wasn't walking, I learned of this "etiquette project" by artist Jay Shells to post various street signs throughout Manhatten with various etiquette messages on them. The one most relevant to social media is, of course:
PAY ATTENTION WHILE WALKING
YOUR FACEBOOK STATUS UPDATE CAN WAIT
Having been almost walked into on several occasions by people intent on typing something into their phone, I can thoroughly agree with the sentiment!
The article on AnimalNewYork.com about Jay Shells also includes a brief video interview with him about the campaign.
Fun to see.
