Funny you should bring that up Jenny, I wrote a blog post about that not too long ago too.
I think that with the freedoms that technology brings, there are also the inherent pitfalls of technology too. One of the biggest that I have caught myself doing is constantly having my phone out. Wether its reading up on some blogs, emailing with a friend, facebook, twitter, or any of the plethora of things that it can do, I find myself not “being present” with the person I am conversing with.
That usually ends up resulting in a lot of “huh” and “wait, what?” moments in a conversation, and when conversation takes the story or point being repeated multiple times, the experience of the moment is lost on the other person.
Personally, I dont want to be that person to someone else.
