Shoefiti.com got some press in the Lawrence Journal-World today.
Thatâ€™s the same question Ed Kohlerâ€™s been pondering seriously for three years.
After he bought his first home in Minneapolis in 2004, he started noticing that a lot of shoes seemed to be popping up on power lines in his neighborhood.
Long story short, he became fascinated with why this happens. He coined the term â€œshoefiti,â€ thinking that the shoes, when left unremoved, resembled graffiti that isnâ€™t painted over.
He even started a Web site, www.shoefiti.com, which tracks shoe/power line news.
Kohler isnâ€™t surprised the shoes show up on Lawrence power lines. The town heâ€™s seen with the most shoefiti is Bloomington, Ind., another college town.
I did the interview by email, and think this is the way to go on future interviews. It’s easier to get quoted accurately and you have more time to think our your responses.
