    There’s gonna be a flash mob in Munich this coming Friday (August 1st). See the webpage:

    There’s gonna be just over 100 known attendees. And hopefully a whole bunch of other friends and friends of friends too.

    I really liked the first two German Flash Mobs.

    I link to their sites on the below URL [click my handle]

    which is intended as an archive for all Vienna, Austria

    Flash Mobs.

    The first one on Friday, July 25 was a great success.

    Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 30 we’ll have the second

    FM running in Vienna.

    So don’t hestitate–come to Schwedenplatz near

    McDonald’s at 5 pm and join the mob!!

    There will be lots of fun, that’s for sure.

    The video is still available but you seem to have messed up the link… unless babelfish now has a service that translates german videos to english 😉 Here is the working link for the flash mob video.

    Another one took place in Vienna recently. I can’t believe Silicon Valley has not had one yet. I mean, this *is* Silicon Valley, how can we be so behind? Oh the shame… I say we have one by the end…

    WHEN: SAT December 9th, 2006. 19:00hs sharp!

    WHERE: In front of the Wiener Staatsoper.

    WHY: Let us celebrate Mozart!

    DURATION: At least 5 minutes!

    REPERTOIRE: Any MOZART ringing tones you like!

    HOW: Show up there at 19:00hs and have someone you know call you at that exact time. Let your phone ring with the Mozart tone for as long as you can. Since you will obviously not pick up the phone have your friends & family re-dial your number at least 3x times so we can get a nice couple of minutes of Mozart ringing tones in the air!

    When done simply go in any direction you like!

    Hint: Dont forget to have your mobile phone with you and make sure that your battery is fully charged. Preset your favorite Mozart ringing tone and set the phone to LOUD so even God will hear it!

    Note: If you do not have a Mozart ringing tone, then fake it with Bach, Beethoven, Haydn, or any other composer of your liking. We wont tell the difference that is for sure!

    Spread the word around!
