He said the mobs started as a kind of playful social experiment meant to encourage spontaneity and big gatherings to temporarily take over commercial and public areas simply to show that they could. It’s terrible that these Philly mobs have turned violent, he said.
Stories spread widely and die out in mere days, quickly replaced by more stories with shorter shelf-lives. No longer do we sit on the sidelines of this action: anyone with a computer can spread a story as easily as the New York Times(or easier).
