Create beautiful moments

Computers will kill us, or we’ll crash them. They were meant to be life-facilitating, but they are simply time’s eaters.

There are days when writing emails consumes my time and facebook takes away a good evening with a book – then I wonder: we created them and got trapped ourselves.

I go out to the cafe and eat a croissant soaking it in hot chocolate. I look at the communicating people and get a wish to chat with my daughter over the phone. And then I calm down.Not all is lost. Many beautiful moments can be created by ourselves without the help of artificial intelligence.
