Staying Home, Connected to the World

Interesting article from the NYT, discussing the pros and cons of the ways we are now connected to everything with our phones.  The author describes a day in which he does everything, and pays for everything, via his smartphone.  How does that effect chance encounters, small businessmen, opportunities that arise from the people we see every day?  “But in the end, Mr. Gleick said, the pros of our technology-driven lives outweigh the cons. “For every dry cleaner who you’re now cutting yourself off from, you’re potentially capable of being in touch with thousands of people who are physically far away,” he told me.”
