Another tidbit from the Japan Media Review article "A New Set of Social Rules for a Newly Wireless Society", written by Mizuko Ito, Joi Ito's sister:
"One college student I spoke to described leaving one's phone at home or letting the battery die as "the new taboo." Teens and twentysomethings usually do not bother to set a time and place for their meetings. They exchange as many as 5 to 15 messages throughout the day that progressively narrows in on a time and place, two points eventually converging in a coordinated dance through the urban jungle. To not have a keitai [cellphone] is to be walking blind, disconnected from just-in-time information on where and when you are in the social networks of time and place."

Frankly, this kind of connectivity scares the s--- out of me. Is the line between sociability and hive mind being crossed here? It's somewhat typical of teens everywhere, and Japan is an extremely homogeneous and group-minded country, so it seems natural that it should be the first to evolve this kind of social grouping. But it doesn't bode well for a future in which we desperately need people who can stand aside from the group and think for themselves. Hopefully, it's just another fad, one of many that will evolve in an unwired world.
