  1. One thing to note. My experience is when people are on their smart phones during a session, it may be because they are tweeting highlights of your speech. This is a good thing.

  2. Hi, Sarah —
    Thanks for your comment. You’re right, of course, and it adds a new complexity to public speaking. How do you tell the difference? It depends a great deal on the audience — some are Twitter adepts and some are not.
    The further complication is that when they’re tweeting, while that is a good thing, it does still mean that they’re not paying as close attention to the speaker.
