What struck me about this scene was how all these people were in rather close proximity but they were all doing their own thing. Half of them are either on the phone, text messaging or using blackberries. They are reaching out and connecting with other people, just not the people around them. I keep hearing that the world is getting smaller, but as the world narrows the gulf between those closest to us (not only in distance, but in some cases emotionally) seems to widen.
