No Billboards in Times Square? The Internet Might Make It Happen

New, 6 comments

Imagine a Times Square with zero advertisements. Many have! Including the Dutchmen who want to replace the Crossroads of the World's billboards with art. That's never going to happen, so filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (of Super Size Me fame) and some like-minded partners have come up with an easier solution for de-cluttering Times Square: Do it digitally! Enter No Ad, a website that simply sports a 360-degree shot of Times Square and asks people to remove every billboard and logo frame-by-frame using image editing software. Will this bit of crowdsourcing work? TechCrunch and Mashable have already caught on, so the geek army should be done sticking it to The Man in no time.
