Way cool project. A new public wireless interface: Hivenetworks successfully launch 'Street Radio' in Southampton | The Next Layer

10 low power FM transmitters with spoken word descriptions of their immediate vicinity on a loop.

This reminds me of William Gibson's VR art idea. VR art pieces that can be seen overlaid onto physical locations. Like a virtual River Phoenix lying on the pavement outside the club where he died. The advantage of using FM radio is that the barrier to entry to view the art piece is so low. I feel like this could be combined with QR Codes and a wiki mentality to allow another form of graffiti tagging of physical locations.
