robertogreco : flashmobs   9

subtlemob 09
"# Imagine walking through a film, but it's happening on the streets you walk down everyday.

# Subtlemobs usually happen in public spaces.

# The audience listen to a soundtrack on headphones, a mixture of music, story and instructions.

# Sometimes they just watch the world, sometimes they perform simple scenes for each other

# This is invisible cinema, making films without cameras

# A subtlemob is not a flashmob

# try to remain invisible . . ."

december 2009 by robertogreco - The Obvious? - Why Michael Jackson flashmobs made me emotional
"My first words were to suggest that the feeling of discomfort that they were experiencing was likely to be very similar to the extreme discomfort that people are likely to feel when their manager doesn't do what they expect but instead appears alongside them acting very more like one of them than adopting familiar command and control behaviors. People have been trained to expect certain structures and behaviour and pulling those away without explanation or alternative structures in place can be very disconcerting."

Fred Benenson’s Blog » Spore losing the DRM Fight [the numbers have jumped substantially as of this bookmarking]
"Spore, the long awaited evolved version of Sim City by game genius Will Wright has a DRM problem. As of this post, there are 14 “1 Star” reviews versus six 4 and 5 star reviews, by people who said that they won’t buy it because it has DRM...The moment concentrated actions like protests lead to dis-organized collective action and rebellion en masse is very exciting. If these are actual consumers acting in concert but without prompting from a centrally organized campaign then it means that our efforts at establishing DRM as an anti-feature have been successful."

Core77 / The Crowd Will Save Us: How the green movement taps participatory networks to drive innovation, by Jen Van de Meer
"For designers embarking on their first green project, or suffering fatigue or from an overwhelming sense of exasperation that you haven't yet changed the world, remember that we're all in this together. Experiment with these platforms for participatory design, and see what big ideas you co-create with the crowd. Open innovation is our driver for sustainability."
