Every so often we hit on a topic that generates an email chain worthy of sharing. This article/video from NYTimes.com sparked the following conversation…
The two minute video “I Forgot My Phone” has been viewed more than 26 million times. It follows a day in the life a woman while the people around her focus all their attention on their phones.
“It’s a direct hit on our smartphone-obsessed culture, needling us about our addiction to that little screen and suggesting that maybe life is just better led when it is lived rather than viewed.
“It makes me sad that there are moments in our lives where we’re not present because we’re looking at a phone,” said Ms. deGuzman, [who starred in and wrote the piece], She mused that, like it or not, experiencing life through a four-inch screen could be the new norm.”
