Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution
This book wasn't quite everything that I had hoped for. Specifically, I was looking for some insight into 'social tagging'. The topics it did cover p2p, reputation systems, wireless connectivity were pretty good. Rheingold coined the term smart mobs to describe groups of people able to act in concert by using mobile media and wireless computer networks to organize collective actions, even without knowing one Howard Rheingold.
In and , Howard Rheingold started noticing people using mobile media in novel ways. In Tokyo, he accompanied flocks of teenagers as they converged on public places, coordinated by text messages. In Helsinki, he joined like-minded Finns who share the same downtown physical clubhouse, virtual community, and mobile-messaging media. He learned that the demonstrators in the anti-WTO protests used dynamically updated websites, cell-phones, and "swarming" tactics in the "battle of Seattle," and that a million Filipino citizens toppled President Estrada in through public demonstrations organized by salvos of text messages. Drivers in the UK used mobile communications to spontaneously self organize demonstrations against rising petrol prices. He began to see how these events were connected.
