This is indeed not about the technology, it is about people failing to use the technology without become a slave to it!
PODDITY POD POD POD! I am just becoming more and more amazed by the sheer amount of times that people use their cell phones while we hang out! I was at a party tonight with Kate, Priscilla and Sage that was hosted by Sage for her birthday. My phone was in my purse and Sage's was in another room. Both Kate and Priscilla were sitting there for a good 20 minutes texting Priscilla's brother about something that had happened earlier that day that made them angry while we were trying to have a conversation. And the best time to deal with those issues is during Sage's party? Couldn't they handle it some other time? Were Sage and I really that boring?
I am dying to host a party someday that is a cell phone free party and you can only use your cell phone if it is a life and death situation. Otherwise it is put away. Alas, it is probably only a dream. I swear I feel like I am becoming a fuddy duddy about this.
