After reading this article about Magnetic Poetry I was taken by the idea that the fridge was no longer the central notice board of the home:
Our age-old impulses haven’t gone away—changes in technology have just encouraged us to take them elsewhere. “It used to be the fridge door was the center of the home,” Kapell says. “That’s where people would hang their kids’ art, leave notes for each other, put pictures, all that stuff.”
So, I thought I would create a digital magnetic notice board, replete with fridge poetry, postcards and photos. I’ve got a few loose ends to tie up, but I’m pretty happy with the proof of concept.
