Comedian Louis C.K. on our very jaded view of current technology

February 26, 2009

This is what people are like now; they got their phone and they're like, "uhh, it won't…" GIVE IT A SECOND!!! It's going to space! Can you give it a second to get back from space?

Funny and poignant, Loius C.K. nails it in this video. Despite my incessant complaining about the various and frequent technological hiccups that seem to plague our lives (it's 2009 and my mobile phone still drops calls?), I'm forever cognizant of what it took to get us here and what a magical and promising place here truly is.

That said, complaining is just part of the cycle: necessity/dissatisfaction --> invention --> novelty --> expectation --> dissatisfaction.
