Moral Authority

Dubai: mosque shoe rack

Unclaimed (or spare) shoes outside this Bur Dubai mosque.

Looking at the infrastructure and objects around your neighbourhood – what is free to take, what can you use and in what contexts, and what is off-limits? To what extent does the moral authority of the mosque extend to these shoes? And how can this authority be extended to other objects and services? What do you assume to upload to a Yahoo branded web-hosting service? What about a hosting service provided by this mosque? So yeah, at what point does the Vatican muscle into the web hosting business?
