Já havia postado uma experiência similar na França. Vejam agora mais sobre “picnicmob”, ou seja, reuniões para aproveitar o ar livre e conexões wi-fi para encontrar pessoas. Vejam para detalhes a matéria PicnicMob is a Social Art Experiment for Meeting Your Neighbors. Obrigado Marcos!.
“PicnicMob is a social experiment of sorts, where the idea is to get a large group of people together in one city and have an online picnic.
By figuring out your interests, the team behind PicnicMob will know where to seat you at this giant picnic in the sky (well, on the web–same difference). So you’ll get to sit by people that you’ll find most interesting, and vice versa. Meet others in your area and maybe find someone new in the offline world. There are 30 questions for you to fill out. They seem mostly nonsensical, but they’re targeted to sift out the information needed for the purpose of this picnic. All that’s needed for your participation in this project is an email address. Once 1000 people have completed the questionnaire, a virtual picnic will be held one Sunday at noon. The current cities supported are Boston, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.”
