I'm so sick of phones capturing every waking minute of some event or activity.
Whether it's video or immediate posts, it is just nauseating.
You have people at concerts posting. Like what the fuck are you paying attention to? This has to be the dumbest thing ever. How can you ever enjoy the moment you are in?
That's just it. The moment is the phone and what that owner is creating as the moment.
You have people at protests going live.
You have half of people at a protest holding their phone up.
You have 8 out of 10 people on their phone on the bus.
You have neighbors on their porch or backyard on their phone.
You have people on the street during a smoke break on their phone.
I have coworkers on their phones at breaks and they don't even talk to each other.
This is really an attention span issue that makes having an attention span to focus worse.
This is really a boredom issue too. People don't know what to do with time.
How about just enjoying the moment? Try to enjoy the fresh air. Try to enjoy the sun or the sound of the rain.
What's the first thing you do in the morning? I'll bet for most, it's grab that phone or computer and get online. That is, if they haven't slept with their phone.
