Questions like this come to my mind as I walk into any office, and see people slouched over their iPhones, BBs and laptops. I get a passing nod and try to not butt into what’s apparently some very exciting Twitter chat.
Or when you watch teenagers in a room chatting while multi-tasking, infatuated by each other’s screens.
I advice people on how best to balance digital and analog, so I come across these complaints and concerns a lot. Which is why I am anxious to see how Social Media Day, today pans out.
We are meeting up -um, tweeting up — in Tempe this evening, at Madcap Theater.
I highly recommend this contrarian idea about today, if only to help you think about what the social part of social media is really about.
