Lost Graffiti Dissertation FOUND!

After being lost in an old mail folder, I finally found Steve Paynter's
great dissertation "Subversion of Public Space." He gave me the paper
in 2005, so I'm glad that I can put it up for you all to enjoy. Go here to download the PDF file, read, and discuss.

Apologies to Steve for waiting so long to post this.
