Modernity

One of my all-time favorite movies is Before Sunrise. I adore it.

The following quote from the movie has little to do with the overall themes of the movie, but it is great nonetheless:
You know what drives me crazy? It's all these people talking about how great technology is, and how it saves all this time. But, what good is saved time, if nobody uses it? If it just turns into more busy work. You never hear somebody say, "With the time I've saved by using my word processor, I'm gonna go to a Zen monastery and hang out." I mean, you never hear that.
