I forgot my phone

If you own a smartphone, there’s a fairly good chance you’ve been guilty of allowing it to distract you from interacting with the people around you. Thing is, you’re usually so wrapped up in what you’re doing that you don’t even notice.

This video, written by and starring actor, tap dancer and comedian Charlene deGuzman is a pertinent reminder of how that device you spend so much of your day cradling actually forms a barrier to physical social interaction.

The message is clearly resonating, given that the video has skyrocketed past 10-million views after going up five days ago. But how do you make time to be without your phone? Well one solution we like is Webby founder Tiffany Shlain’s idea of a “tech shabbat”, where she and her family completely unplug from technology one day a week.
