Smart is the New Pretty: Connection Failed

By |November 30th, 2011|Smart Is the New Pretty, WhyDid Wisdom|

We are so attached to our computers and smart phones, it seems nearly impossible to even get through a dinner without someone (or everyone) picking up his or her phone to text, Tweet, check-in, or share a photo.  It begs me to ask the question- have we become TOO social?  And have we forgotten what the word “social” really means?

Perhaps it’s time to put down our gadgets and make real life connections– with the people who are right in front of our faces.  Sure we are all “connected” but are we really “connecting” at all anymore?
