Leaving your phone home for a social event is the new cool. Hipsters everywhere are boycotting their devices in favour of real time interaction. It’s a fad that’s set to rise.

Like the momentum behind the vegan movement, there’s reason to be optimistic. Awareness of an issue leads to new ways of thinking about things. This can help reset the balance.
