While conducting my flawed bus-riders-as-smokers study I concurrently conducted a humans with white-cords-in-their-ears study.
- Can they hear anything outside of their broadcast?
- Are they missing out on life by being plugged out?
- In 10 years will there be any effects of constantly listening to casts and music vs soaking in the surrounding environment?
If anyone wants to donate an old iPod to me to see if I too see the joy of being plugged out vs. hearing the sounds of the world around me, I’m game.
