iPad-Based Jumboltron Movement Crowdsources 'Inspiration,' Makes Much Ado About Nothing
Are you a smelly, attention-starved hipster itching to challenge the inevitable march of mankind's technological isolation? A shower might help, but, failing that, you could always grab your iPad and join this modern day take on the 70s drum circle: Called Jumboltron ("jumble"-tron, get it?), the project isn't concerned with the marketing potential of its folksy endeavor.
