Playdate cover by Chris Ware

Family time! This cover for The New Yorker by Chris Ware focuses mainly on the success of the videogame Minecraft, but it also puts into perspective how young people spend time together these days. Myself included. I often hang out with others while each person is individually on our phones and more and more, I don't really feel like there's anything wrong with it. I just don't buy the whole notion of electronic interaction making people less socialable. I actually thing it's making people reach out more and connect more frequently than ever before. The only difference is that a lot of people try to package it with traditional face-to-face interaction which it isn't. There's a whole lot I can say about it really. Maybe you can ask me when we hang.
