Page 1 of 4 1 2 3 4
OP It's a new word, it's a noun, it's a verb...and it's a new web-inspired socio-cultural phenomenon. Here's a link to all the stories...London, New York, Denver...
Now to the most important question...who and/or what could AWADers flash mob, and what could we do? Libraries and bookstores come to mind, but...
#109782 08/12/03 04:13 AM OP Oops! Bookstore's been done already...in Rome! hi emanuela!
>Europe's first "flash mob" hit Rome last month when a group thronged at a bookshop and peppered staff with queries about non-existent books. <
Flash mobs have also hit Japan.
#109783 08/12/03 12:56 PM I say we meet outside a library, each of us with a book in our hands (a lightweight one). Somebody produces a sheet; we grab the edges, put the books in the middle, toss them into the air, catch them, and then everybody grab one and depart.
#109784 08/12/03 01:50 PM I think we should nominate a publicly-located copy of the OED, say a library, and arrive to pay homage with offerings of obscure words on 3 x 5 cards.
#109785 08/12/03 02:18 PM I wonder what alien scientists aboard flying saucers would think after observing these apparently pointless activities?
#109786 08/12/03 02:41 PM alien scientists … apparently pointless activities
You mean as opposed to all the other apparently pointless activities we indulge in?
#109787 08/12/03 03:04 PM like what? do you mean cricket ?
#109788 08/12/03 03:09 PM Not meaning to pick anything in particular, but, yes, e.g., cricket.
I'll leave it as an exercise for the interested student to think of other examples.
#109789 08/13/03 07:16 AM I like this idea much better
#109790 08/13/03 07:38 AM Hi vika,
I very much agree with you. I hope the bookcrossing idea will spread at least half as fast as flash mobbing...
