As time goes on, we become more and more wired and distant from one another. In this context, the term "wire" referred to the internet and its role in bringing about new technological developments. The more time we spend on our phones, computers, and other electronic devices, the more we start to neglect the people who are most important to us. As our society becomes increasingly networked, the resulting gulf between us widens. Before the advent of the internet and mobile devices, people spent more time communicating with one another in person, learning about one another's interests and personalities through facial expressions. It's time to put down the phone and reconnect in person; just hold hands again as you did before.
