Disconnecting… or not

Tonight, I went to see an incredible concert that included Lang Lang, Joshua Bell, and John Legend, among other incredibly singers and pianists. While the performances themselves were awe-inspiring and far beyond what I expected, I couldn’t help but notice the girl next to me who constantly texted her boyfriend and friends throughout the night. I get that you can enjoy music by listening and not watching, but this bordered on excessive. The concert lasted about 2.5 hours with an intermission halfway through. Are we really becoming a society when disconnecting for just a couple of hours is too much to handle? How much information do we really need to share with each other, and where do we draw the line for what is considered acceptable?
