We don’t see them as often anymore, the so-called tactical media strikes, where activists manages to get exposure in mainstream media by forging news – as carried out by ao. The Yes Men as well as other cunning activist groups.
But last month there was a brilliant strike made by Berlin’s FAT Labs art activists. The story of how they managed to place a gps-tracker on the Google Street View soared through the Twitter-sphere and got picked up by a series of large media, including The Guardian – as well as on this blog.
Now, however, a newly released blog post and video (well, last month), under the title ‘How To Build A Google Street View Car’, shows that things weren’t quite what they seemed. Rather than explain it all here, I will let below set things straight. Brilliant!
