Here's a look at Saturday's Seattle flash mob
in Pioneer Square's Occidental Mall, dancing to some of the hit music from Glee
. Co-organizer Bobby Bonsey, a freelance choreographer and photographer, told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
's blogger Monica Guzman yesterday : "I want people to be staring at their computer and be watching this and have that really cool smile just creep across their faces, and have those goose-bumps." Besides this one, Bonsey's flash mobs around Glee
also occurred at Seattle's Pike Place Market and Kerry Park in Queen Anne.
Memo to social change advocates: an estimated 3,000 people took part across the three locations; unlike most flash mobs to date, these were mildly choreographed and rehearsed in public parks yesterday morning prior to their tri-space debut, which had been kept somewhat of a secret to the general public. Mobile tech played a huge role in organizing, of course -- and the addition now of new geo-location
apps are just making it easier to scale the size of the crowd, Bonsey says.
