Here are two that came over the transom this week . . .
(HT: Lots of you)

These are AWESOME! The only problem is that people who are tweeting or updating their Facebook might not see them.
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
– Ferris Bueller (1986)
These are brilliant!!
I adore social media (it’s actually my livelihood!), however its pervasiveness in the modern world is kind of ridiculous.
Sometimes when I’m in my car, something jumps into my mind that I really want to share on Facebook. I have to constantly remind myself that it is simply NOT SAFE to update my status while driving! The thought I have will be just as insightful/witty/intelligent when I am safely parked as it was when it first popped into my head (and it won’t result in a car crash!).
I am going to share these on my blog, the Thrive Happiness Movement- I think our fans (who are also social media nuts) will appreciate them!

This is cool, Dan. These really reflect that participating in the New social media is not anymore a want but part of the daily life of the average people around the world.
This is truly a complex issue with many varying schools of thought. I’ve picked up a few really keen strategies from this new social network for marketers that I found. It’s called http://meengle.net. You should check ’em out.
What a wonderful!I would like to thanks for this great blog.
Very funny. Thanks for sharing. But the only way the tweetaddicts and face-in-facebookers are going to see these signs is if you tweet or like them!
I was introduced to Daniel Pink by Patti Shank from Learning Peaks. From just reviewing the informtion today I have ordered the book and can’t wait to get started.
The signage is very simple yet profound because it’s so true. I think I’m going to post on my fb status!
Great article…just wrote something along the same lines and did a podcast and a listener pointed me to your article. I have been guilty of texting while walking, and it really is not conducive to safety! Fun stuff, Jenn
