I can imagine a dark and twisted future where people use this technology to do really evil things like luring people to their death. There is a movie in that. It's an interesting experiment in mass hysteria. I am happy that I don't have a cell phone so I can't get sucked into the group madness. And I would be the first to join this and other future 'adventures'. Or maybe I wouldn't. I am not much of a joiner anymore. The idea of roaming around with my cell phone up to find a cartoon character so that I can take a picture of it to show the imaginary bit of data that I 'captured' doesn't appeal to me. Some say this is a good social activity. I say it's just a lot of walking. Have I got this right? It's a digital scavenger hunt which I hope remains harmless. I give it a week until we hear a bad story about this phenomena. Remember you read it hear first.
And MY favorite Pokémon? It begins and ends with BULBASAUR!!
