Freeway blogging. One surefire way to make your voice heard: put your blog on the side of the road. Of course, this isn't always popular: in Scotts Valley, CA a pair put an anti-war banner on an overpass bridge after the Sept. 11 attacks.

We can be thankful that Caltrans policies regarding this were overturned, so people can use this unusual but valuable medium.
