Could Egypt be having a “Flash Mob Revolution”
January 29th, 2011


Blogger Jazz Shaw has a post this morning comparing the mechanism of a Santa flash mob to what may be happening in Egypt. From the post, after describing a Santa flash mob in Britain:

Now transplant that operation to a city like Cairo. In the old days you’d need to plot your revolt with secret meetings in dimly lit cafes, and you never knew when the waiter would turn out to have a brother in the secret police. But today, through the miracle of social media and with a little training and planning, you could have hundreds of people show up in the city square on short notice. But instead of Santa hats, they bring guns and bricks and flags and torches and Molotov cocktails. . . .
