Take Some Time To Look Up From Your Phone This Weekend

Despite our love for technology, we (and others) have talked ad nauseum about the social downsides of burying your face in a screen. But few arguments convey the idea as well as this five-minute video.

At times it’s a little cheesy, and it may feel like something you’ve heard time and time again from anti-tech relatives or your friends with a superiority complex. But if you actually give it a chance and watch the whole thing, it’s pretty well done — dare I say even moving.

Of course, the video has its flaws too. It ignores the social upsides to a constantly-connected world. Technology also allows us to keep in touch with our families and organise meetups to make like-minded friends. But a lot of times, it’s just our way to keep from being “bored” by standing around for two minutes. Why not look up and see what happens?
