I’m reminded daily of cell phone obsession. In restaurants I often see couples spending more time on their cells than face-to-face communication. On the skytrain I find no difference. It’s becoming rare to observe a couple in conversation for any length of time.
That was one of the themes of a recent downtown Calgary flashmob performance put on by the Calgary Centre for Global Community — the disconnect between people and the ever present connect with technology.
While the flash mob performed at several locations on different days in Calgary, I wondered if its intended messages will have the desired impact.
