The similarities between the OWS movement and the electronic-dance scene discussed in Bill Wasik’s article are almost hauntingly similar. In this article Bill Wasik recounts of an electronic-dance DJ who planned a “block party” through twitter. 1,000 people were expected, but over 5,000 showed up. Super engagement is real and the social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and texting, is essentially the lifeline of their scene. Because you still have to search for this type of music, there is a huge sense shared community. These people came together because they felt invisible, despite their enormous numbers. Bill Wasik referred to this in his article as the “emergence of the mega-undergrounds”. Facebook and Twitter expose the huge disconnect between the real scale of things and the recognition within the dominant culture. This gathering felt like forcing society to respect their definite existence. The OWS movement is essentially the exact same thing! This “99%” felt invisible, but they knew their numbers were large. So they gathered to force society to recognize and respect them.
