Just as one example.
Or all the new Virgins who are use to having their cell phones attched to them and continue to have it attached to them as they call their bf gf or parents every minute to tell them the cool shit they are seeing...who could really use a week without that technology attached to them. I know how affecting that week without is for me and my friends.
As just another example. It is a special feeling being nearly cut off from the outside world.

what a sad state when sheeple can't disconnect with their facebook or email or chatting on the phone about bullshit.
I was walking through Berkeley going to the Hat Shop and EVERYONE on the street had either a cell phone stuck to their face or had ear buds in, no one saying hello or good morning to any one they passed. Total disconnect with so much mass humanity.
On the playa only 50k and some can't even satay engaged for a week without checking to see if their default world is crumbling without them.

They have mastered the art of walking and texting without looking where they are going--completely oblivious to the world around them. Everyone they needed to interact with, was within that little handheld device.
I recall when portable cell phones first came out, I would be a public toilet stall, and the guy next to me would appear to start a conversation. "Hey, how are you doing". It took me a while not to answer when they would start talking.
People can't back out of a fucking parking space now, without calling a friend to tell them the latest update that, "I am leaving the mall now and I'm backing up my car".
Then there are the minute by minute updates to their MySpaceFace pages. Give it a rest--I don't care if your beloved dog has a rash on his bottom---honest!
Wide spread cell phone use and texting on the playa will destroy the backbone of this event. I can't imagine the same people who can't take a dump without their phone to their face, can make it a week on the playa without their social network for support. "Guess where I'm texting you from?"
