KING TV has a story today about an advertising entrepreneur who has designed and launched a system for floating billboards. And he plans to use them on Lake Union and Lake Washington.
Apparently there are no rules preventing someone from using waterways for hawking goods and services.
According to the story, the inventor, Darren Bruce said:
“I see scenery, I see beauty, I see opportunity,” says Bruce, who has also floated the display, which can be connected with others to create a 14 x 192 foot long billboard, on Lake Union. “There are a lot of eyeballs.”
Personally, I am seeing red. I like boating because I can get away from the cheap commercialism and incessant hucksters of daily life.
