Abstract

Mobile phones offer a perfect solution to the party problem by helping people to select the best in the town with few phone calls. One can find out what all parties are like by calling on the spot and then comparing which is the best one to attend. People have become very choosy about who they spent time, with that they quit parties with few like-minded friends and end up at one party. All this happens at a critical level of pickiness, with sudden effects.
