The Freshness of Contact Information

The design and contextual understanding that helps evaluate the ‘freshness’ of the advertising/links, in particular the frequency by which phone boxes are cleaned of fly-posted advertisements. The speed at which legal/authorised and illegal/unauthorised advertising is removed, and by whom? The opportunities that the differential in time creates, and for whom?
