Donation $25. Call 922-6363. Technology may be socially neutral, but it's being used in some mighty anti-social ways: People talk to you while working at their computer or watching TV. They use a Walkman to shut out the world and a car stereo to inflict their musical tastes on the rest of us. They clog your fax machine with self-serving and personal messages, maroon you on "hold," interrupt you for "call waiting" and pitch you helplessly into their labyrinthine telephone voice mail.

Cellular phone users among the newest New Rude even take calls while in the audience at movie theaters and at stage shows. And then there's everyone's favorite the movie theater chatterers, who insist on gossiping, reading subtitles out loud, and critiquing the plot in a bellicose manner. What's going on here? "People growing up around TV inappropriately duplicate behaviors they've learned from technology, especially from TV," says Conrad Kottak, a professor of anthropology at the University of Michigan whose book, "Prime Time Society" (Wadsworth Publishing, 1 3.S0), studies how watching television has affected public behavior. "People do all kinds of things while they watch TV," says Kottak. "Reading, talking, talking on the phone.

Because they've become so conditioned to doing things like that, they behave inappropriately in classrooms, theaters and concerts." Certainly these miscreants are symptomatic of changes that have taken place in the American social fabric. The decline of neighborhoods, coupled with increased geographic mobility and the growth of suburbia, means that our society is losing the tribalism that once bound us together. Too often, we don't know our neighbors, so we really don't care about them. Insensitivity and incivility are natural extensions of this. What once was common-sense etiquette is as threatened as the corner grocery and the neighborhood tavern.

"The basic etiquette is common sense, or lack of common sense. But common sense is not so common today," says Nancy "The Telephone Doctor" Friedman, a St. Louis-based expert on customer service training and phone etiquette. "There is no place you go to learn how to use a cellular phone or a beeper. And there is no place to go to learn common sense." "I don't think technology means good manners or bad manners.

It's how you use it, what you do with it," says Charlotte Ford, author of "Etiquette: Charlotte Ford's Guide to Modern Manners" (Clarkson N. Potter, 1 9.95). Ms. Ford feels people who misuse new technologies like cellular phones and call waiting do so "because it's a new toy," and that eventually they will learn to make the proper adjustments, "and the world won't fall apart." Luckily, folks fortified with a sense of propriety are beginning to fight back. A recent report from Miami told how several theaters, restaurants and other businesses are banning cellular phones because of customer complaints of impolite use.

Charlotte Ford believes there is no place for cellular phones in such public places as the theater, ballet or symphony, and adds that "if you're a doctor, and you go to the theater, you should go on nights you're not on call. If that's not possible, even a beeper is less offensive than a phone." When it comes to technology like call waiting, Ms. Ford has another common-sensical solution: "If someone calls in while you're talking to someone else, don't keep them on hold, tell them you'll call them back." The bottom line, of course, is the old Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Think how you would feel if some motor-mouth were blabbing away in the movie theater during an intimate love scene. Remember that human interaction is a lot smoother when it takes place face-to-face, rather than face-to-computer terminal.

Consider what mechanical voices attached to voice mail systems say about how much we value personal contact. And consider that new technologies offer their own solutions: You can use a vibrating pager instead of the kind that beep. You can turn off your watch alarms or pagers as you enter a public place. If that's not feasible if you really are a doctor on call you can turn them in to an usher or maitre d', identify where you're sitting, and have the staff contact you if you're paged. Those Walkman radios and car stereos? Take 'em off, turn 'em down, join the world.

Victims also can confront the oafs who commit techno-social gaffes. Just be polite, remind them where they are, and ask them to take their business elsewhere. If that doesn't work, have management take care of the problem. "We're not characteristically an uncivil society," says Conrad Kottak, "but I think we can say technology is making us uncivil. A lot of very narcissistic people are using technology inappropriately, and they don't realize how narcissistic it is to be doing what they're doing." -OCTOBER 16 NOW IS THE TIME TO ADD A BEAUTIFUL FOUR I JUl I SEASONS ROOM TO YOUR HOME.
