Recently I asked someone who shared a link with me where he found it. He told me “from the internet”.
Well, yes, almost all hyperlinks are found and shared on the internet as a matter of fact.
BUT IMAGINE IF
You extended the pigeon protocol to the concept of social media.
Say you want to share an article, youtube video, or other link with a friend.
- you install the Avian.io app and hit “ave it!”
- a robot prints the link out and attaches it to a Certified Pigeon. that pigeon finds you, poops on your head to get your attention, and gives you the link
- if you “like” the link,
- you feed the pigeon some crackers so that when it returns to the sender
- the sender then knows how much you appreciate the link based on how much the pigeon poops on him/her 30 minutes later
