Flash crowds as performance art
An outfit in New York are organising spontaneous flash crowds by email and mobile phone
, as a performance art event of sorts. This works by large numbers of participants meeting around a preordained location at a specified time, hanging around for 10 minutes and then disappearing, whilst bystanders try to figure out what happened. Except that last time, one do-gooder dobbed them in to the police, who decided to intervene (you never know, this sort of thing could be cover for a terrorist atrocity or a jewel heist or something).
