Flash Mobbing

Flash Mobbing is a sudden gathering of people in a public place who perform an activity together (eg. a walkman rave in vitoria station or a pillow fight) for a short time and disperse again. The activity, location and time is posted on the internet or sometimes communicated through text messages so the people do not necessarily know each other.

Making our own version of 'Flash Mobbing' could be an interesting idea for gathering in a public space and creating a disruption. It could possibly be a good way of getting other people from outside the group involved. Perhaps if anyone has ideas for an activity we could post it on the website and see what happens.

Sounds like a great idea! I'll let you know if I think of an interesting, unusual activity.

some people I know from university did a smoking flash-mob when the ban came in - they even got some press. you can look it up on facebook: its a group called the UK's first smoking flashmob.

There's also the water fights that have gone round the country due to facebook, e.g. 'cardiff's biggest water-fight'.
