The New Wireless Wave

I used to take notes when I covered an event. It is easier to take a picture of a slide than to scribble it in a notepad. It is more accurate and I understood why other people were doing it too. People in the audience would raise their phone and take a picture. Lately people have raising their iPads to take a picture. If several people in the same row take a picture at the same time, it looks like they are doing the wave at a sporting event or making a bid at an auction.

It occurred to me that some tablet maker could put a crowd on some bleachers and give some sort of Jumbotron display like you see at North Korean political rallies. Somewhere there is a Youtube video waiting to be made.
