I won't be in town for this, but it sounds like a fun idea.
If anyone goes, let me know how it was.

Sounds very fun... especially the part where they break FCC rules and broadcast decentrally.

“I’m not quite sure what the whole idea was other than to wreak havoc,” said Dan Lurie, 19, a City College student. “It was an interesting event but I’m not sure there was a message here.”
I think i saw one of the revellers (activists?) in brooklyn, but he was dressed as bigfoot. He'd hide behind parked cars then jump out at passing vehicles at the last second. Clearly a candidate for the darwin awards, i was surprised he didnt get run over during the 15 seconds i watched

And actually while I'm watching the videos and reading the comments all I can think is that it sounds like an out of control mess. In the video I can see a banner that says "Reclaim the city". What? From who? We've got the right to gather in groups -- let's not ruin it with "havoc" or someone will begin to think it's a good idea to take it away.

Reminds me of a quote from someone at the CATO institute: many of the modern-day activists are focusing on feeling good rather than doing good.
