    The New York Subway 1981

    The New York Subway 1981
    1981, 22-year-old Florida photographer named Christopher Morris spent 6 months documenting the plight of New York City’s subway system. Time writes:
    "New York was a very different place in the 1980s. Throughout America, and the world, it had a reputation for being a crime-riddled, dirty metropolis – one much changed from its bustling, mid-twentieth century prime. And nowhere was this more evident than on the city’s subway trains and platforms. Once the pride of Manhattan and the boroughs, the network had become a virtual no-go area both at night and during the day. Indeed, even a cursory glance at crime statistics shows us that in 1985 there were approximately 14,000 underground felonies – a far cry from today’s approximate 2,000. " More images jump more.

    Use Your iPhone Case To Send Smoke Signals Even

    Imagine a communication protocol that didn't require text, photographs, or any other typical message content; a virtual smoke signal. This is a clever iPhone case that will revolutionize how you chat with your friends—using technology that's been around for hundreds of years. Dennis Be Bel's S.M.S.—or smoke messaging service—case heats and vaporizes lamp oil every time a simple button is pressed, sending a small puff of smoke wafting up into the air. And if conditions are right, the person you're trying to message will see that puff, or several, and then respond in a similar fashion. It's completely secure because it's up to you and the person you're communicating with to come up with a way to translate the smoke puffs into messages.  That is what artist and hacker Dennis de Bel is developing with his Smoke Messaging Service, or SMS, project.
