Campus Speaker: Instant Communication

Tom Krieglstein shared a blog post last week featuring this Urban Speaker, an outdoor art installation by Carlos J. Gomez de Llarena.  It was intended to offer an instant stage for public communication.

I shared with a colleague that having my own urban speaker, or Campus Speaker, would be quite handy as my office overlooks a major residence hall thoroughfare.

Things I would share on my Campus Speaker:

Hey, you! Walking through the landscaping! They call it a sideWALK for a reason!

Hey, you! Please use the crosswalk! You are becoming a retention risk!

Yo! You on the motorcycle! SLOW DOWN! This is a residential area!

And today I could add things like, “Congrats to the Cyclone Volleyball team for sweeping Iowa in three sets!”

What would you share on your Campus Speaker?
