Happiness is a Broken Blackberry!

happiness is a broken blackberry!

technology is great
i love technology
but people need to put this stuff aside

there should be a LEAVE YOUR TECHNOLOGY AT HOME DAY!
once a month
life is nice without reaching for your hip every two seconds
it is a compulsion not a pleasure
it does not need to be this way
it does not really help the work day to be that tuned in every second
that same email will need to be read again to get your full attention when you get to your desk

in elevators people used to avoid each other by looking at the numbers marking the floor
now they look at their blackberry devices

NO EMAILS CAME IN DURING THE LAST TWO SECONDS
NO SERVICE IN THE ELEVATOR
DO NOT BE AFRAID TO INTERACT WITH REAL PEOPLE IN REAL TIME

dads ignoring their children
people ignoring the outside world
the beach has to be the funniest place to see a blackberry
headphones and blackberry devices have their place
but... people need to moderate the Crackberry Addiction!
they may like it
leave it at home
leave it in your bag
on your day off check it every hour on the hour
instead of every minute on the minute
there is a world out there
go be a part of it
