|Smart Phone Fear by Matthew English|
Sorry if I come across as a tiresome curmudgeon, but I ask you next time you are out and about to look around and see just how many people are sitting or standing, hunched like a goblin over this tiny box, pouring their time and attention into this glass screen.
The image nagged has nagged at me for several weeks now - I've read a novel or short story about what we seem to be turning into, but couldn't place it until today.
If you have the chance, please take a few minutes to read E.M. Forster's novella, The Machine Stops. If you are driving or otherwise unable to read the story, check out the audio version below.
No rant here. Just something to contemplate.
Have a safe weekend. Don't let the SOBs get you down.
