It’s already too much.

Too many gadgets complicating our lives as it is.

It’s already too much. Too many gadgets complicating our lives as it is.

I was traveling recently and staying at a hotel across the street from a college. Thirsty for a beer, I walked across the street to one of the university bars and sat down. This was a Friday night and what I saw depressed me. The place was packed with young college students and practically each one of them was privately engrossed in their smart phones. there was almost no interaction between them!

I recalled my college bar scene from twenty years ago and I remember it being very social and lively. Of course, nobody had smart phones and even email and the World Wide Web were technologies we were only beginning to utilize in their most primitive forms.
