Mobile Phone Follies.

5.27.2006

Recently, my mother pointed out a phenomenon that I'd also noticed. To wit, that the preponderance of cell phones causes incomplete, spur of the moment planning. Cell phone owners can become spastic, as if waiting for some magical answer to materialize in the very last minute before a meeting. How tedious.

Several months ago, a relative wrote a article pointing out that with land line telephones, calling a number would get you a known location, but an unknown person at that location. With cell phones, you are calling a known person at an unknown location. We must be seeing more negative aspects of that effect.

Plan. Just do what you would have done a mere 5 years ago, before everyone had a cellphone.
