Are Flash Mobs Old News?

The Shifted Librarian:

You know flash mobs are "over" when they land on "Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet" in Entertainment Weekly (August 22/29, 2003, p. 12)"
"Flash mob: hundreds of people are alerted by text messaging to show up at a certain time, and they do! The only hard part is getting Mom to drive you there."

Since the first Flash Mob took place in NYC in July 2003, they have spread across the world. Every major city in the world has now experienced this new ‘phenomenon’. How long can these random gatherings go on for and are some of the ideas for flash mobs getting a little too crazy?

More information on flash mobs can be found here and here.
