It usually takes the media up to six months to catch up with what the teenagers are up to online, and then they get it wrong.  But this piece from the Indie really seems to nail what's had the boys giggling for the last 4 days: tens of thousands of people playing a simple video game at the same time with no effective way to communicate.
It is wonderful in its way watching the crowd decision-making and resultant lurching about.  Amazingly, they are getting more forwards than backwards with little or no trolling.  Pokémon players must be an exceptionally nice bunch.  I just hope someone somewhere is doing the social science and psychology analysis on all that data. Several new religions have arisen apparently.
