Another way technology is changing daily lives

There is an interesting Washington Post article on Smart Mobs - where people communicate instantly by cell phone (I suppose you could put Instant Messenger or ICQ in this category as well since they are instantaneous) and "swarm" to a location to see each other. The technique has also been used by protesters to "swarm" to a protest, and is being examined for use by the military.
