  • Last summer, when Pokémon Go debuted, the world around me appeared to go crazy, at least according to local media. Reports of people wandering into traffic, car crashes, armed robbery, even people falling off cliffs in attempts to capture tiny cartoon “pocket monsters” appearing in the physical space around us, abounded (though I never witnessed these events personally).

I couldn’t wait to go outside, to the PokéStop-rich town square, not just to catch Pokémon, but to see, walk, and interact with neighbors I’d never met—who seemed to have been in hiding since I was a little girl.
