The second edition of this out-of-print book is forthcoming. In the meantime, it is available on Google Books.

Last week we shared some great urban farming projects from New York, and this week, Berlin and Hong Kong are our focus. Do you engage in a bit of urban agriculture?

“Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head. You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs.”
