Your friends and family live in your phone. Sure, you see them from time to time, but usually for scheduled events, planned well in advance, with an agenda and a timeframe. How often do you just find a friend ... and chill?

GUEST: Sheila Liming, author of Hanging Out: The Radical Power Of Killing Time
