"It's not that I'm a Luddite and don't like technology; I've just never been interested," Nolan said. "When I moved to L.A. in 1997, nobody really had cell phones, and I just never went down that path." [He continues to explain] A lot of the things people amuse themselves with really are just toys for grown-ups, and it eats your time and pulls your concentration," he said. "The idea that you're holding in your hand a device that will actually let you speak to another human being and instead of using it for that, you type some silly little message and send a one-way communication — it's a very odd step backwards in communication terms."
At the age of a youthful 41, Christopher's indifferent attitude towards the communication technology tools that so many people are desperately dependent on is admirable, and very zen like. I can go days without looking at my cell phone, I know some people can't go 5 minutes without it. As a Communication major, I find Christopher's low tech stance to be pretty sensible, cool, and humble.
