Flash-mob: Pillow Fight in New York
April 20th, 2008

ANJALI ATHAVALEY of the Wall Street Journal writes a story about flash mobs when Students Unleash a Pillow Fight On Manhattan.

“The first World Pillow Fight Day — where people in about 35 different cities gathered in public spaces to engage in brawls — is part of a broader phenomenon known as the urban playground movement. Its goal is to promote the creative use of public spaces through free and fun events, says Kevin Bracken, cofounder of Newmindspace, the group that organized the pillow fight in New York.”

A reference to “Smart Mobs” and Howard Rheingold can also be found in the article.
