Viral Culture

*Fascinating* interview in Salon with Bill Wasik, the guy who created the flash mob (in addition to working as an editor at Harper's). He speaks of viral culture & it's impact on our society--how "nanostories" like the Susan Boyle phenomenon have affected our ability to view things in a broader context.

Read it here.

And he's got a book, too: And Then There's This: How Stories Live and Die in Viral Culture

Def. putting that one in my "to buy" pile!
