Spending too much time in front of the computer? I know, I am. Most jobs require sitting / standing in front of a computer screen; then one must check in to facebook / twitter to see whats happening with our friends; wait ... Just ate at this amazing restaurant let me yelp it; and that perfect picture that was taken with the cell phone at last night's party of that crazy outfit - it must be Instagramed asap because it was an #instagood #selfie. Not to mention the online dating scene of OkCupid, Match, E-Harmony, Tinder, etc. All that responding and searching takes time.
Its easy to get caught up in social media, and one can loose itself in the "check vortex". Remember that one Portlandia episode?
This meet up group is for individuals who want to un-plug for a little bit (not completely, after all we are using meetup to connect ;) and grab a drink and have a real face-to-face conversation once every 2 weeks. Enjoy the actual talking to someone in the group! Ask how was their day, where are they from, where did they last go for a vacation. Anything really, that gets a good /or even awkward conversation going- just chat - without holding a cell phone and looking at it every 2-5 minutes in fear of missing out on a recent facebook notification or a yelp update.
