Grafedia. A town in Italy? No. A new catchy dot-com? Nope. Some new form of sexually transmitted disease? Hardly. Give up you say? I came across the term once while reading an article in the paper. It was one of those many that I read when I read the paper, which is really hardly ever. But what caught my eye was that I had seen what they article was talking about. Grafedia, in essence is graffiti. Yep, you heard me, G-R-A-F-F-I-T-I. Grafedia is hyperlinked text, written by hand onto physical surfaces and linking to rich media content - images, video, sound files, and so forth.
