Our Cellphone Biographies

How do our phones shape the way we communicate with others? What do we expect from our phones? What happens when those expectations fall through? And what are the moments in our lives that make the answers to those questions clear?

In this series, we aim to give our own responses to that last question. With a bit of reflection, all of us with cell phones can all think of moments in our lives where something happened with, through, or because of our devices that led to a realization. These realizations might be about technology, communication, relationships, or any number of themes.

So, we want to know. What’s your cellphone biography?
