Tired of getting your political signs / lawn flamingos / mail box stolen? One Portland family is using online video geekery to take matters into their own hands after having their Obama campaign signs stolen from their front yard.
They’ve set up a UStream video to nab the sign snatcher and have thousands of folks all over the world watching the video stream 24-7 in hopes that the apparent Obama opposer will be caught in the act. Woe be unto that snatcher, they’ll be subject to the wrath of thousands of online tongue lashings if spied. For shizzle.
Don’t get mad, get a webcam. That age-old
political tactic of stealing your opponent’s signage has gotten a
digital upgrade. Over on the Huffington Post’s Off the Bus, Pat Lawson-Black has the story of a Portland, Oregon family who rigged up a video camera to Ustream.tv to catch the thief pilfering its pro-Obama lawn signs.
