They’re just part of the latest rage: Taylor Swift and One Direction. Both phenomena have been on television recently in concert-like venues, entertaining screaming crowds of fans.
But I kept noticing on both occasions that no matter who was performing, the situation was the same. Screams and smiles might have peppered the crowd, and a few hardy souls even sang along, but invariably there were hundreds, if not thousands, of cameras held aloft. It would have been impossible for the cameramen to catch shots without smart phones front and center.
