Smart mobbing is not just a group of people rallying at a park. Two young men, David Pickering and Eli Pariser had virtually joined forces to overcome war. “War, Pariser believed, was the wrong answer; it would only slaughter more innocents and create more terrorists.” David Pickering, a student at the University of Chicago was posting a blog with a similar end goal on a campus web site and by September 14 of 2001 he had managed to obtain 1,000 signatures. Four days later on September 18, after the two had teamed up they had 120,000 signatures from people of 190 different countries all over the world hoping to end the war and save the lives of innocent people. Clearly, in the end after countless years of war in the middle east their efforts did not stop the war from happening. The concept of what they had accomplished and the attention and notoriety they had gained is amazing.
