Flash Mobs Considered Harmful

Anil Dash, the VP of Business Development at SixApart, thinks that flash mobs are a trend whose time has come — and gone:

Mobs are truly the flagpole-sitting of the new millennium. As Joshua astutely observed, Flash Mobs are striking in that they are an affinity event for people who have no affinity group. A Meetup for people who like Meetups. How much more meta can it get? None. None more meta.

Couldn’t have said it better myself…

beer, if too much drinken, causes bad feelings in the head and in the stomach. is beer therefore a bad thing?

once upon a time people make mistakes. sohuld the child that is learning how to move on its 2 feet give up trying after the first falling down? sure, crawling is somewaht better - rom this position it is hard to fall down.

should we crawl because of falling down once?

and about "came and gone": it's like man before having sex: "I won't be able to do that..." - will he succeed with having thought it as a "lost game" before having tried?

keep in touch, guys!
