Blogging on a Chalkboard in Africa

Truly amazing story about a chalkboard Blog. A great reminder about the importance of self publishing and community. - S

This is Alfred J. Sirleaf, the founder and sole editor of a ‘blackboard newspaper in Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city. Everyday, Alfred updates his newspaper, The Daily Talk (I can’t even paste a link), neatly writing the latest headlines using sticks of chalk in his “newsroom”, a small wooden shack attached to the back of his blackboard.

Design Inspiration: The Chalkboard Art of Dangerdust

I'm in love with the work of anonymous artists "Dangerdust". Seriously stunning work!

All of the above is good and all, but for some reason I am extremely drawn to the photos of the art being erased and washed off. Its surprisingly poetic and beautiful.
