YOU are at a party and the person in front of you is not really listening to you. Yes, she is murmuring occasional assent to your remarks, or nodding at appropriate junctures, but for the most part she is looking beyond you, scanning in search of something or someone more compelling.

Here’s the funny part: If she is looking over your shoulder at a room full of potentially more interesting people, she is ill-mannered. If, however, she is not looking over your shoulder, but into a smartphone in her hand, she is not only well within modern social norms, but is also a wired, well-put-together person.

Add one more achievement to the digital revolution: It has made it fashionable to be rude.

Funny to read, Ahem! Are You Talking to Me? (Or Texting?) – NYTimes.com sadley I know some of those people and I still call them my friends 😉

Watch Chip Conley on TED.com: “When the dotcom bubble burst, hotelier Chip Conley went in search of a business model based on happiness. In an old friendship with an employee and in the wisdom of a Buddhist king, he learned that success comes from what you count. He creates joyful hotels, where he hopes his employees, customers and investors alike can realize their full potential.”
I finished reading his book “Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow“. I was truely inspired by his ideas and I introduce the essential meaning and methods to my students in entrepreneurship, and leadership, and in corporate communication.

15.219.739 views until today on youtube. Maybe there is hope for the lost generation, if we choose to reverse it. It made me think. How about you?

I like this prezi by Tarundeep Singh Bhatia very much, especially because of the tips for kids and parents. And as friend asked me seriously when to buy a computer for his 8 year old kid, it is not only a question when, but more for what reason and how to use it, hopefully TOGETHER!
