Technology: Inclusively anti-social

Over the weekend I was lucky enough to attend the NCAA Regional finals here in Minneapolis. The games are televised and sometimes the tv time-0uts get a little long. Solution? Instead of talking with your family, just whip out the family-plan cell phones and play a game as this family of three in front of me did. It's rather an elegant solution - it's inclusive while still giving people their space. And while they couldn't do anything to whittle down their team's 10 pt. defecit, they could make a few easy buckets on their phone.
