Re the paint Mansi, You and I can get hold of suitable paint fairly easily.

I think it would be interesting to have a basic way of creating blackboard-ready paint from any available paint. Imagine a progressive thinker in New Guinea (or in any city without a hardware store) wants to set one up... They simply source some black paint, throw in a few bucketfuls of road-side dirt/sand/whatever, and get some people to paint it on a wall. [How-to make black-board paint?]

That way it could have a truly global application...

We have an interesting thing going on in our community magazine, MX (Brisbane CBD only): It is a segment called 'Here's looking at you" (or similar).

Contributors send in an endearing comment about someone who they saw on a bus or train, telling them about something they liked about the person (eg. Nice eyes; You made my day; I'll be on the 5:15; etc.).

A BB on a train/ bus-stop/ subway could become a fun way to do the same.

Hi guys. A few thoughts here that might stimulate discussion/other ideas.

- QR codes. Each board with its own unique id.
- Sponsors. Create a 'chalk-art' ad for a sponsor, and they can pay for the chalk (small price).
- TED. I think this idea could be an idea worth spreading.
- Curved surfaces. The concept doesn't need to be limited to flat walls.
- Outdoor. The beauty of an outdoor installation? - Precipitation becomes the master eraser!

Good thoughts and ideas in the room. Keep them coming!
