A very interesting question...

It is going to be ironic that I'm posting this here, and the irony will probably double when I share this on Facebook, but here it goes.

On Wednesday evening at the fireworks, I was struck by the number of people who were in attendance with cameras in tow. My husband was one of them.

Then, about halfway through the display, I noticed a small group of people near us who were...every one of the five...watching the fireworks as the filmed them on their phones, watching, not the fireworks exploding in the night sky, but the display on their phones.

Trust me, the iphone is not good enough to capture the full extent of fireworks.

And that all got me to thinking about this article.

What do you think?  Are we documenting more than we are experiencing?  Are we hoarders?

Not hoarders...myopic.
