Is XCM Really This Popular?

Postby David Acer » August 2nd, 2011, 10:44 pm

One week after seeing someone practicing (not performing) a Sybil-like cutting sequence on a public bench in Toronto, I saw a few guys in a Montreal fast-food restaurant working on some De'vo moves while they ate.

I know XCM is a growing movement, but is it really the next Rubik's Cube? Or Hacky Sack? Or Yo Yo? And does this mean there's hope for extreme silk magic?

Any evidence that people outside the field are getting interested and practicing things that might lead them into the field is a good thing.

I was hoping the pen spinners would learn of the Mora vanish and sneak on in too.
