The Baltimore phone pole

I'd like to introduce you to the newest, coolest place to post your digital event fliers: The Baltimore phone pole.

The phone pole was the brianchild of jmgiordano, who wanted to have one place where Baltimore musicians and promoters could share their shows with everybody. Here's the link to the phone pole's Facebook page.

Yeah, that's kinda genius!

Baltimore's own Fastspot already did this with Fly Post. (www.fly-post.com) The Facebook version has a lot wider appeal though.

i was confused by the name. Then I realized that there used to be wooden telephone poles that people attached fliers for events to. How long has it been since there were telephone poles in the city?
