Catalyst Outdoors has drafted legislation that would create a “digital district” of “urban experiential displays,” or UEDs. This is, as close as I can guess, fancy developer-speak for “really fancy 3D billboards.” Natalie Kostelni, Catalyst rep, cheerily informed press late last week that the signs would communicate news, public service announcements, and advertising - mostly the latter. There are two ways of looking at the UEDs. On...Read More
