“Flash Mob” Terrorist Group Uses Blog To Cause Global Market Crash!!!
My imagination kind of got carried away this morning. Yesterday I was reading about the “flash mob” phenomenon while reading an article about the potential of marketing using mobile technologies today and in the near future. I added that idea to the power of the blogosphere evident from the mistaken Engadget posting causing Apple to lose $4 billion in shareholder value and the usual “What’s happening in the terrorist world” news on CNN, and a scary mash-up occurred. Could a terrorist group coordinate, using mobile technologies, a series of postings to be posted on different blogs that could affect investor fear levels to such an extent that we could have a worldwide market crash. Enough fraudulent postings about influential companies on the various exchanges could potentially do alot of damage. Scary when you think about it!
