Liz Kearney: Let's all take Instagram out of picture
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to Instagram it, did it really fall at all? That is the great philosophical conundrum of the 21st century, when every special moment is snapped, edited in a flattering light, and posted to social media. Enough, says concert designer LeRoy Bennett, who is backing a ban on smartphones at gigs. Bennett, who's worked with stars such as Madonna and Paul McCartney, is irritated by fans taking pictures of the stage and capturing it from a bad angle. The artists get upset, he said, and presumably he gets it in the neck as a result.
