As a kid, when I had just reached the age of having or going to sleep-overs, there was a constant source of friction between me and my friends: they would want to watch television, and I argued that we could watch television alone, so it was a waste of our time together.
Now our entire society has become a pervasive, mobile version of what I was trying to avoid as a child. But instead of watching television, we’re all watching our phones, tablets, and laptops. Everywhere. On the street. At dinner. At parties. At traffic signals. In our living rooms and bedrooms.
What a waste of our time together.
