From the checkout line to the seat behind you on the train, the modern phenomenon of the cell phone monologue is often a deliberate display - a defiant assertion of self. We're calling on the best and brightest of Bay Area talent to put this unsolicited public theater into a proper context, and demonstrate what iPhone exhibitionism can inadvertently, and entertainingly, reveal.
