Everything is amazing and nobody is happy

I love this film clip of Loius C.K. talking about how complacent we’ve become with technology. As someone who works in technology everyday, I know it’s easy to become complacent and critical of what we’re doing, but occasionally we need to remind ourselves of how amazing things actually are. For example, tonight I was using Skype to video call my wife and son from my hotel room 1000km from our home. Every now and then it would become a little stuttered, and I’d get a little annoyed. But I need to remind myself: I am 1000km from home and I can talk to, and see, my wife and son fullscreen on my laptop, for free! How amazing is that.
