Weekly Poll Update: ‘What current issue is most important?’

By Marcie Gainer for Disinformation

Old Poll

Our first weekly poll was a relative success. In light of our soon-to-be released Boredom, we asked your opinions on one of the issues raised in the film. It seems the majority of you agree with director Albert Nerenberg’s conclusion. The results are below:

Are Smart Phones Making Us More Bored?

  • Yes (69%, 121 Votes)
  • No (31%, 54 Votes)

Total Voters: 175

Another Shameless Plug: Since I’ve already shamelessly promoted a dozen or so of TDC’s films, I might as well do another plug about our new donate button. I’m sure you’ve all noticed it on the top right hand column of our site at this point. If you ever feel like showing your appreciation for the work we do here, please feel free to donate (any little bit helps, even a dollar). Help us continue to bring you alternative news, while fostering the community we’ve all come to love.
