Recently, a group called Improv Everywhere performed their Sixth Annual Mp3 Experiment. This one involved over 2,000 people of all ages downloading the same mp3 and pressing play at the same time. As seen in the video, they responded to a creepy instructional voice (think SAW) and were mindlessly led (think cult) through a series of goofy activities.
At least it looks like everyone had a blast and ended up connecting on a human level. Perhaps this is a great example of technology catalyzing human connection. My recent post about embracing the caveman within is a relevant read.
