If addiction is judged by how long a dumb animal will sit pressing a lever to get a "fix" of something, to its own detriment, then I would conclude that netnews is far more addictive than cocaine.  ~Rob Stampfli

A computer terminal is not some clunky

A computer terminal is not some clunky old television with a typewriter in front of it.  It is an interface where the mind and body can connect with the Universe and move bits of it about.  ~Douglas Adams

The world is poised on the cusp

The world is poised on the cusp of an economic and cultural shift as dramatic as that of the Industrial Revolution.  (OK, it doesn’t take a genius, or even a politician, to figure out that big changes are afoot when we have a medium that lets someone throw up a virtual storefront on the Web and instantly gain access to the global market.)  ~Steven Levy, 1997

The big dispute between the government and

The big dispute between the government and Microsoft concerns the Internet "browser," which is the piece of software that puts a message on your computer screen informing you that the Internet is currently busy and you should try again later.  As you can imagine, the potential market for this service is huge, so Microsoft would like you to use its browser, and not somebody else’s.  ~Dave Barry, 1998

I am at a loss to figure

I am at a loss to figure out how to rid my e-mail of those bottom-feeders of the electronic world, the generators of spam…. If I were Emperor of the World, I would lock all the spammers in a room and force them to watch nothing but TV commercials for the rest of their miserable lives, and I would condemn the people who respond to spammers to do nothing but clean the toilets in this room. ~Richard Turner (1937-2011), The Grammar Curmudgeon, a.k.a. “The Mudge,” from “The Curmudgeon Sounds Off: A Plague of Spam”grammarmudge.cityslide.com/articles/article/733270/12516.htm; tpv,uwp,qe2

There are three kinds of death in

There are three kinds of death in this world.  There’s heart death, there’s brain death, and there’s being off the network.  ~Guy Almes

What exactly is the internet basically it

What, exactly, is the Internet?  Basically it is a global network exchanging digitized data in such a way that any computer, anywhere, that is equipped with a device called a "modem" can make a noise like a duck choking on a kazoo.  ~Dave Barry

First we thought the pc was a

First we thought the PC was a calculator.  Then we found out how to turn numbers into letters with ASCII – and we thought it was a typewriter.  Then we discovered graphics, and we thought it was a television.  With the World Wide Web, we’ve realized it’s a brochure.  ~Douglas Adams

After all it was designed to withstand

After all, it was designed to withstand nuclear war, not just the puny huffs and puffs of politicians and religious fanatics.  ~Denise Caruso, about the Internet

A bird’s song is beautiful, but if it never stops you feel like shooting it.  ~Laura Ainsley, on over-zealous tweetingtwitter.com/ThinkEvenBigger/status/2205880228, 2011flickr mail png

The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn’t understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had.  ~Eric Schmidt

Chances are you now know that the

Chances are, you now know that the marriage of the computer and the telephone is one of the century’s seismic technical and economic developments.  In terms of potential social and economic impact, it is often likened to the introduction of assembly-line manufacturing or to the invention of the computer itself.  ~Author Unknown

The internet is like alcohol in some

The Internet is like alcohol in some sense.  It accentuates what you would do anyway.  If you want to be a loner, you can be more alone.  If you want to connect, it makes it easier to connect.  ~Esther Dyson

When i took office only high energy

When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the World Wide Web…. Now even my cat has its own page.  ~Bill Clinton, 1996

Just as we could have rode into the sunset, along came the Internet, and it tripled the significance of the PC.  ~Andy Grove

Every bit of software wants you to be "social."  What ever happened to being grumpy and alone in your writer’s fugue?  ~Doug Greentwitter.com/douggreen/status/1994149106

We have technology, finally, that for the first time in human history allows people to really maintain rich connections with much larger numbers of people.  ~Pierre Omidyar

I regularly read Internet user groups filled with messages from people trying to solve software incompatibility problems that, in terms of complexity, make the U.S. Tax Code look like Dr.  Seuss.  ~Dave Barry

The internet is clearly about more than

The Internet is clearly about more than sports scores and email now.  It’s a place where we can conduct our democracy and get very large amounts of data to very large numbers of people.  ~Frank James
