In Charlie Chaplin's famous "Modern Times" the Tramp struggles to survive in a world that has been changing so rapidly around him that it is difficult for him to catch up with it. When I think of Modern Times these days, I think of the simplicity of roaming through a world in which almost every information seems to be only one click away. In San Francisco I fed my phone a simcard with Internet access and can now book hotels while on the road, check out the closest place to eat, or simply find more info on whatever sight appears in front of my eyes here. I love being a child of the MTV generation and I love being here in these particular Modern Times. You may call it laziness, I call it comfort.
