Flash Mob in Central Park NYC
There is a UK site here:
And sites have also been set up for London, Birmingham, Manchester and Sheffield:
The first London flash mob is planned for 7th August in Soho.
The following text has been taken from the Birmingham site:
The movement has begun in New York, it’s spreading across other cities in the USA; now it will begin in the UK.
The internet provides us with the ability to connect a network of disparate individuals together and then mobilise them as one; moving in unison for a common cause. The ‘mob’ appears without warning and dissipates as swiftly as it arrived. Like a school of fish or flock of birds, an amorphous, dynamic body is formed. It’s complexity the result of the path taken by each individual adjusting and readjusting to the rules of the group as it moves.
A smart mob is a group who synchronise their movements and convene momentarily, to become a startling intervention in the life of a city.
* We want to bring people together to have fun.
* We want to inject more quirkiness into people’s lives.
* We want to be altruistic.
