What is or is not “in” is not being resolved on the global catwalks anymore; the Internet is often taking the decision to the fashion victims.
The basic idea is easy. Anyone who relates to fashion and accessories can start their own personal blog and share their daily outfits, shopping buys or style sins to potential readers. However those who prefer being part of a large community and a larger crowd, or even hope for the great breakthrough occasionally post their photos on global fashion websites, such as lookbook.nu. This platform is governed by hobby models worldwide who upload unusual street outfits and set the fashion tone. What becomes a “hype” in this community is decided exclusively by the crowd.
Use of the (Internet) public increasingly seems like a viable way to fight crime. Keepers of the law can’t be everywhere and large investigations cannot always be carried out, especially in the case of minor offences. In the meantime, appeals by the German police on Facebook, or the Seattle based Twitter search for stolen vehicles (@getyourcarback) just about symbolize a guarded request to fulfill civic duties.
A woman, let’s call her Lisa, buys socks for her husband. The socks are good brand name quality, warm and comfy. Her husband, let’s call him Kai, is pleased with the gift. But Lisa often has cold feet and soon starts to wear the socks herself. Kai is not pleased. The heels of the socks are soon thin and whenever he wants to wear them, they are either in the laundry or his wife has them on.
They get into a fight – and let the crowd decide who is right.
