Talking to the wall

I think these graffiti-covered walls may be the spiritual predecessors of Internet message boards.


  1. This is so true. Back in college, there was this one bathroom where people were always writing provocative comments about politics or feminism on the walls, and then others would scrawl their responses. These exchanges would sometimes be five or ten comments long, and I remember thinking it was just like a sloppier, more localized version of an internet discussion thread.

  2. Fascinating, and I think you may be on to something here.
