My 15 Minutes of Fun

I hope some of you had a chance to experience the World Wide Flash Mob III event that took place all over the world between 10:00 and 10:15 (Pacific Standard Time) today. I understand events were planned in 15 different countries, 45 different U.S. States, and 11 Canadian Provinces.

I attended one held in Santa Rosa, CA called WWFM 08 - Hands Around The Hands. A great (albeit short) time was had by all. At 10:00 A.M. exactly, a couple dozen people converged on, and formed a circle around, the hand sculpture in the plaza:

Then, at exactly 10:04, we marched single file (in a somewhat dysfunctional conga line) a short distance to waypoint #2. There, we traded travel bugs and geocoins. We were all given 35mm film cannisters containing our meals (Hershey's kisses). Then, we each signed a raffle ticket, which constituted our log signing. Next came the raffle drawing, where several lucky geocachers won some nice GeoCoins, including the brand spanking new WWFM III GeoCoin:

At 10:14, we all put our GPSr's up to our ears and said, "Sorry, wrong number":

And, before we knew it, it was over as quickly as it began, and everyone was gone. Many thanks to Mr. Moo and Moozer for organizing such a fun-filled event. Can't wait for WWFM IV!
