It began with an Arcade Fire song. While listening to the Canadian indie rock band’s “We Used to Wait,” Domenico Capilongo reflected on how technology has affected our day-to-day communication. “We used to write letters and wait by the phone and now it’s instantaneous, 24/7,” he explains. “[Singer Win Butler] is so cool.
