Wth is a toynbee? I keep seeing this but I don't get it.. I must be getting old..
Naw this has been around for as long as the net I do believe. For quite awhile these tiles with messages have been showing up randomly, first around New York and now around the world.
No one knows for sure who or why. All we have is the message.
Happened to me like most I guess. I saw comment by a guy in a forum and I asked? Then I said wait! I know where one of those things is. Went to look and it was gone but a post on a different forum where some ones trying to keep count said there are 14 in my city.
Ive followed directions to where tiles are supposed to be. I think they don't last long because of the demographic here. You start talking about resurrecting the dead on planet Jupiter, well it gets people worked up.

What hooked me were the tiles themselves more than the message. Anonymously deliver a message that gets Global attention by making these tiles and sticking them to the streets
