I JUST heard this term for the first time last week, when a friend described getting a photo of someone "planking" in front of an Apple store (apparently, this is a popular hobby among Apple employees). I feel so out of the loop. Thanks for the background info!

New silliness, thank you. Growing up in Northern Michigan in the 60s, planking was slang for another favourite horizontal activity.

Planking is the most feared moment of the exercise class I attend, wherein you hold all your muscles rigid for 60 seconds while an instructor yells at you. If you do it right, you pretty much don't need to exercise for the rest of the week. But I don't think I'd plank on a balcony.
