Look Up

Have you seen this video? It's powerful - and in a much more eloquent way, describes what I was trying to say yesterday.

I've been thinking about establishing some rules for my iPhone and technology in general -- I just don't want to be a slave to my gadgets and the interwebs. Maybe no phone on Sundays, or social media in the evenings after 6? I think it's really important to be present. On that note, I am off to the dog park, and I'm leaving my phone behind. :)


  1. I have seen this video and it does convey an interesting message. But I also find it ironic watching a video about the pitfalls of social networks on a social network, not to mention the fact that a social network is responsible for making this video viral. I also think people find it easy to blame the social networks and the smart devices, instead of shouldering some of the blame themselves. A phone, for example, is a wonderful device to have, especially in time of emergencies, especially those that people do not see coming. I personally feel people should show more self restraint while using social media and technology. But having said that, I think that is what the video is trying to convey, though i do not necessarily agree with the idea of turning off computers and leaving phones behind. That's my two cents. :)

    1. Thanks for the comment. To each their own! :) And yes, I see the irony in posting this video on social media. Sarah
