“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

Veronica Roth
“Two things you should know about me; The first is that I am deeply suspicious of people in general. It is my nature to expect the worst of them. And the second is that I am unexpectedly good with computers.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent

Ray Bradbury
“I still love books. Nothing a computer can do can compare to a book. You can't really put a book on the Internet. Three companies have offered to put books by me on the Net, and I said, 'If you can make something that has a nice jacket, nice paper with that nice smell, then we'll talk.' All the computer can give you is a manuscript. People don't want to read manuscripts. They want to read books. Books smell good. They look good. You can press it to your bosom. You can carry it in your pocket.”
Ray Bradbury

Stephen Hawking
“I think computer viruses should count as life ... I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.”
Stephen Hawking

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

“Doing research on the Web is like using a library assembled piecemeal by pack rats and vandalized nightly. ”
Roger Ebert

Richard Feynman
“Well, Mr. Frankel, who started this program, began to suffer from the computer disease that anybody who works with computers now knows about. It's a very serious disease and it interferes completely with the work. The trouble with computers is you *play* with them. They are so wonderful. You have these switches - if it's an even number you do this, if it's an odd number you do that - and pretty soon you can do more and more elaborate things if you are clever enough, on one machine.

After a while the whole system broke down. Frankel wasn't paying any attention; he wasn't supervising anybody. The system was going very, very slowly - while he was sitting in a room figuring out how to make one tabulator automatically print arc-tangent X, and then it would start and it would print columns and then bitsi, bitsi, bitsi, and calculate the arc-tangent automatically by integrating as it went along and make a whole table in one operation.

Absolutely useless. We *had* tables of arc-tangents. But if you've ever worked with computers, you understand the disease - the *delight* in being able to see how much you can do. But he got the disease for the first time, the poor fellow who invented the thing.”
Richard Feynman, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character

Charles Stross
“Idiots emit bogons, causing machinery to malfunction in their presence. System administrators absorb bogons, letting machinery work again.”
Charles Stross, The Atrocity Archives

Harper Lee
“Now, 75 years [after To Kill a Mockingbird], in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones, iPods, and minds like empty rooms, I still plod along with books.

[Open Letter, O Magazine, July 2006]”
Harper Lee

Mitch Ratcliffe
“A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any other invention with the possible exceptions of handguns and Tequila.”
Mitch Ratcliffe

Ian Stewart, Professor Stewart's Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities

Larry Niven
“That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they really hate is lousy programmers.”
Larry Niven

Arthur C. Clarke, 2010: Odyssey Two

Scott Douglas

Scott Douglas, Quiet, Please: Dispatches From A Public Librarian

Jaron Lanier
“Emphasizing the crowd means de-emphasizing individual humans in the design of society, and when you ask people not to be people, they revert to bad, mob-like behaviors.”
Jaron Lanier, You Are Not a Gadget

Steve Wozniak
“All of a sudden, we’ve lost a lot of control,’ he said. ‘We can’t turn off our internet; we can’t turn off our smartphones; we can’t turn off our computers. You used to ask a smart person a question. Now, who do you ask? It starts with g-o, and it’s not God…”
Steve Wozniak

Earl Warren
“The fantastic advances in the field of electronic communication constitute a greater danger to the privacy of the individual.”
Earl Warren

Michelle Gagnon
“For most people, home we represented by four walls and a roof. Not for Noa. She preferred a motherboard to a mother, a keyboard to house keys. Nothing was more comforting than the hum of a spinning hard drive.”
Michelle Gagnon, Don't Turn Around
