Just in time for New Years, Bill Murray rants about tech, in 1982!

by Mark R

When I saw that there was footage of Bill Murray ranting about tech from 1982, I just had to watch it.

After all, who wouldn’t want to hear the star of Ghostbusters, Stripes, and Groundhog Day speak about technology? I always thought he was a comedic genius, and to some extent, he still has it.

This is apparently some footage for a show called Wired In, which apparently never aired. The sound quality is poor, but you can hear what he has to say about technology. His rant was completely spontaneous, and it was done as the camera was prepping for what looks like a very short clip.

I like Bill Murray’s ideas about robots. He didn’t want them to create cars, but he didn’t seem to have any problem with creating a robot co-pilot that would run and get you gas.

As for those dashboards that talk to you, our GPS has taken the place of that. I remember those cars that would talk to you and remind you to put on your seat belt. Those really annoyed me, and they don’t really make them any more. An indicator light is all you need.

As for his dislike of digital watches, I am afraid that most clocks that aren’t on the wall are digital now. Sorry, Bill.

I like Bill Murray too. And he makes a good point about watches that tell you to the second. Our culture does seem to be hooked on gadgets.
