From an article in the NYT called "Forget Shhh! Theaters Want You to Sing Along" [7/11/10 in the Media & Advertising section]:
"Older moviegoers may still prefer to sit in silence, but younger audiences — the ones studios work hardest to motivate off the sofa — are increasingly programmed to interact and multitask. Sitting quietly in a theater starts to feel like a bore when you can watch the DVD at home while texting a friend, playing a video game and posting witty comments on Facebook."
Do you sit in silence, or post witty comments to your Facebook? (Is the world going to hell, or what?)
