There were about 10-13 people in Starbucks that day and most of them were staring at their screens. Some were socializing with people who weren’t in the building, through Facebook. Others were working on essays or reports, for both work and academics. Some were just consuming media on YouTube and Netflix. Weirdly enough this coffee shop where most people don’t talk to each other has so much more collaboration and human interaction going on than one would assume after a superficial observation. If you look deeper you can imagine all the people socializing and working together through those laptop screens and you realize that there might be many more people involved digitally than there are physically.
