My uncle always put himself into the lazy group category in the family. He told my mom, lazy people in our family create more value compared to diligent people like my mom - We use brain power versus labor. As I think back to his words, I feel it’s so true.
Looking back at technology development, people’s laziness contributed to the bulk of technology improvement. People were too lazy to go outdoors, so TV was invented. People didn’t want to calculate by hand (much less in their heads), so the computer was used. People hated going to the library to look up actual books and newspapers for research, so the internet has filled that gap to make research easy across the world. Moving to more “first world” problems, people hated having to carry a camera, MP3 player, phone, etc., so Apple introduced the iPhone. Every new app launching is a step to be lazier.
Google Glasses is the product to take laziness to another level, which convinces me that it is the trend of technology evolution, and to improve our lives.
So people, let’s become lazier and lazier.
