Strangers and Interaction

Here's an interesting article about Interaction in Cities which I came across a few days ago. Did you know that Interaction between Strangers is a subject at university?
Although no linguistic implication is discussed, it seems to me that the ways we as "individuals" may choose to interact (or not) with strangers may also shape how we choose to activate our skills and use language in context.

    This game is fun and interesting way of helping children to work together. Improve skills and provides opportunities for social interaction.
    Sport captain
    One person from the group is asked to wait outside the room for a moment.
    Another person is chosen as leader of the sports games and s/he must lead the group by ‘playing’ different sport movement which the group imitate (they must not look at, or indicate in any way, who is giving the lead).
    The person outside the door is called in and they must guess which of the group members is Captain of the sport.
