  • Dead Drop Treasure Hunt [Toronto]

    Union Station

    WHAT IS IT?? Dead Drops. The term dead drops originally come from the early days of espionage when exchanging classified material in public required a system of hiding said information behind a loose brick in an alleyway wall or under a flagstone on a towpath. A USB dead drop is a USB mass storage device installed in a public space. For example, a USB flash drive might be mounted in an outdoor brick wall and fixed in place with fast concrete. Members of the public are implicitly invited to find files, or leave files, on a dead drop by directly plugging their laptop into the wall-mounted USB stick in order to transfer data. The dead drops can therefore be regarded as an anonymous, offline, peer-to-peer file sharing network. However, in practice USB dead drops are often used for social or artistic reasons, rather than for practical ones. Let's band together, face the harsh elements and stick our laptops into the side of buildings potentially getting infected with viruses? Oh yes!! fun indeed! Afterwards let's get some hot chocolate and talk nerdy to each other ;) WHO IS WITH ME!?!?! -------------------------- MORE INFO -------------------------- DATABASE: https://deaddrops.com/db/?page=list WIKI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_dead_drop VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmkG4ry1dmM
