The Generation of Idiots?


Having coffee with friends.

 A day at the beach.

Cheering on your team.

A dinner with friends.

An intimate date.

A conversation with your friend.

A visit to the museum

Enjoying the sights

I'm not sure who put this little photo essay together, but I found it rather telling.  Nearly 80 years ago T. S. Eliot wrote about the modern condition of being "distracted from distractions by distractions."  With the Smart Phone, one almost feels a need to add another layer to this, like "distracted from distracting distractions by distractions."
