As technology grows, methodology like peer to peer networking, mobile communications and pervasive computing are changing the ways in which people organize and share information. This decentralized organizational structure powered by readily available technology is termed a Smartmob.
Smartmobs have begun to have an impact in current events, as cell phones and text messages have empowered everyone from revolutionaries in Malaysia to individuals protesting the second Iraq war. Individuals who have divergent worldviews and methods have been able to coordinate in short term goals thanks to these technologies.
