Out for breakfast with Dana, this ATM caught my eye.
Stateside, most ATMs are anchored to architecture; this one is on wheels. In hostile environments, feet of mobility can mean higher security than being fixtured to the wall. LoJack – 70’s car tracking tech. The people who know what LoJack is. Their cross-sectional area in the Venn Diagram of thieves, customers, and renters.
The misused stickers – ATM inside. The 8 supported cards up top. The 12 supported cards below. The “try your EBT card here” – problems of so many social programs, clarity of use and the nature of suggestion. Lots to think about over huevos rancheros and the best hot sauce in Los Angeles. No, really.
