Please Rob Me

Marker [Detail]

Short of cash? Messrs Borsboom, Groenveld and Van Amstel have the answer to your problem: Please Rob Me. Creatively highlighting the dangers of location-aware services publicly broadcasting users’ current locations, they state:

The danger is publicly telling people where you are. This is because it leaves one place you’re definitely not… home. On one end we’re leaving lights on when we’re going on a holiday, and on the other we’re telling everybody on the internet we’re not home.

Eager to stress the project is aimed at raising awareness, their footer is crystal clear, “Our intention is not, and never has been, to have people burglarized.” Indeed.
