Back from a week in Israel, on today's show Cathy shares her newly hatched performance piece, "Shut Up and Breathe: A disconnection love story" that had its inception at the 140 Conference in New York in June 2011. Built into a longer-form performance for 140 Conference Tel Aviv, this beat poem is equal parts rant and clarion call to digital denizens. Also today Cathy recaps her experiences in Tel Aviv, and shares some stories about travel disconnection.

NOTE: Today's show will be shortened and will not run a full hour.

The Conversation is not about technology. It's about what you do with it. Jumping from this basic premise, each week The Conversation's Executive Producer & Host Cathy Brooks explores the bits and bytes that are changing the way people get and share information, interact and the way in which this is fundamentally changing social and professional interactions. Each week guests ranging from up and comer entrepreneurs to seasoned influencers and everyone in between join Cathy to talk about what they do, why they do it and how their personal story fits into the mix.
