silent disco

My student Maria introduced me to the the Silent Disco the other day (well, she showed me the site, unfortunately we didn’t find one nearby). Pioneered at clubs which did not have permission for loud music, silent discos pass out headphones to dancers who listen to music sent out via radio. See CNN or this Youtube video:

  1. Dabbawallas of Bombay
    The strangest manifestation of network culture that I have come across is the “Dabbawalla” phenomenon of Mumbai ( Bombay ) city. This is a network that delivers lunch boxes to millions of Mumbai’s working population. Here is one of the many articles I found- Dabbawallas, UPS and FedEx.

    There are numerous more websites, studies and articles on the net, including one in the New York Times and a case study be Carnegie Mellon.
