Modern friends.

I’m sure that when I was a kid (yes, its an old persons post) I’d hang out with my friends, we’d do stuff we probably shouldn’t, we’d get dirty and get told off by our parents. We’d talk, we’d shout, we’d sometimes probably talk too much, but we’d talk. Physically. With our mouths.

A recent trip around Istanbul showed me that those halcyon days appear to be but a distant memory, no matter where I am in the world.

    What I truly don’t understand about this particular electronic culture is the seeming need to congregate in groups, in parks or cafes or restaurants, and then proceed to isolate yourself into your own little (actually, quite big) cyber world. I just don’t get it.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I love the concept of “the group” at the restaurant, café etc all putting their phones face down in the middle of the table during the meal/drink/conversation. First one to check their phone pays the bill.

        Excellent idea! I think if they tried it, some of them would find that they like looking into the eyes of their friends and making that human connection. No emoticon can compare to a smile on the face of another human being.
