LOL This has to be one of the worst such articles I've seen!

I saw that on the news just recently. Had a good chuckle. I often wonder if the stupidity in these sort of pieces come from some out-of-touch media desk-jockey trying to wring any trace of "cool factor" out of a story that would otherwise bore most people to death.

This is nothing new. It just took longer to get to this part of the country. It blew up in NYC recently causing all types of problems for people wanting to explore the city infrastructure. People like him are in it for himself.

I'm with you man.

Also, this guy is a narcissist. The more attention you grab, the less available locations are going to be. Grrrr.

eh I'll play the devil's advocate and say "yeah... nothing new for US" But for the news reporters it IS an exciting piece. let's face it, the guys in that piece, are part of a VERY small percentage of people that are willing to do it. Our community just happens to have a lot of people that fit into that percentage. So for us, it may not be incredibly impressive, but I bet there were a lot of people that saw that news bit and were genuinely amazed. Especially here in Texas.

Plus, no real names were given, and faces were hid so props to the news reporters for that, and no locations were shared. IMHOP no foul.

Its nothing new for the public/media either. There have been multiple articles written in NYC, Chicago, Detroit, etc. It just hadn't gotten to Houston yet until now. They did cover up places/names but it lets the city know that people are climbing their buildings and they become more aware of things. NYC i believe is trying/did pass a new law towards climbing the city infrastructure because of articles like this. NYC went from being easy to new laws being passed, along with extra patrols on the bridges.

I appreciate the Devil's Advocate opinion by AdventureDan. This small piece probably had no substantial affect in reality. But, I still think it's not a good idea to bring this sort of stuff into the open because of laws like the one Rinzler mentioned in NYC. I would much rather keep my explorations private and continue to do them unmolested for years and years, than bring publicity and make it harder on myself. Personal viewpoint though. I'm also not much of a rooftopper, but I translate the attention to all forms of urbex.

I have a friend in New York, who's images have been in the news, as well as she has been interviewed. If they do it right, and keep much of their information to themselves, then nothing usually happens. She still goes where she wants, and has no issues. But then she does a lot of photojournalism on the homeless as well, which has also been on the news, and gallery shows in New York.
Yes she is also a member here, and the one that invited me here.

Back in the old days we did media stuff.

However we had a very select criteria to make sure we didn't end up looking silly.

If it hadn't been for an article in the Dallas Observer, I would never have known about Urban Exploring and not gotten to see lots of interesting places.
News pieces can be good and bad.

If it hadn't been for that same article I would never have met the 2 guys that turned me on to UER.
