Richard Dreyfuss: Technology Has 'Killed Time'

A poignant message from a surprising sage. Richard Dryfuss offers us all a word of caution.

I don't really understand much of what Dreyfuss is trying to say but he seems to be a bit dyspeptic. Yes, technology will take our time but we will adapt and use it for the best in most cases because that is human nature.

Still, I love the old geezer and most of his movies :)

Certainly we will eventually adapt, but it is the period between now and then to which Dreyfuss refers, this first century of the megabytes/second age.  What he is saying is that decisions used to take time so issues were regarded with importance but we're getting so rapidly acquainted with instant gratification and an undo button that we're failing to recognize important issues that are not only unequipped with an undo button by inapplicable to the undo category of things.
