If new social networking technologies like FaceBook and text messaging are not enough to keep you part of the social inner circle, there is now a new trend in social communications that doesn’t require a computer or cell phone. It is 50 meters up in the sky, and is called dinner, show biz, marriage, and meeting in the sky. The Europeans have pushed envelope when it comes to social networking trends, by introducing what appears to be an increasingly popular, and novel way to meet with friends and colleagues. It is a platform suspended at a height of 50 meters (164 feet) by a team of “industry professionals”. Although many of us may ask “where is the bathroom? I guess you will have to hand out umbrellas’ to the onlookers below your airborne event, or just hold on until you are lowered back down to the ground. The company response to this question was “It’s like in a normal restaurant: you ask the waiter where the toilet is and… you go down. It’s just a bit less discrete because the whole table goes down but it takes less than a minute”.
