I love the Internet, but it’s hard not to get lost in it. It’s not like a book where you start and get to the end. It’s like we’ve found a way to encapsulate all of human knowledge within one thing only to learn that you can’t do that. It’s an overabundance of information.

The Internet was appealing partly because it was something I could do in bed and feel like I was achieving something. I had an operation when I was 13 and ended up with complications, so I was in and out of the hospital. The bottom line is you can get through health challenges. It’s part of why I was so driven.
The Internet is the new public space. And because women are out in public, people don’t like that in much the same way that if you’re walking down the street you get harassed.

I’m actually doing a show. From my shed. On the internet. But it won’t be music or anything, it’s more to do with drinking and smoking. It’s an art piece.

The Internet is a very powerful tool, but right now it’s being handled by a lot of fools.

Not something that uses us, but something that we will control
All in all, the internet is a force for good, providing young entrepreneurs with access to an incredible wealth of information, has changed the way we see the world and is also a great source of innovation and entrepreneurial opportunities.

I think the Internet is going to open up a lot of possibilities with music, and the shake-up of power is exciting to me.

It’s true that the Internet is an equalizer, and everybody can be a star now. Musicians are more touchable these days, and that’s a good thing. It’s certainly the way I like to live my life, and it’s why I don’t do concerts in big arenas – I prefer to be in touch with my audience.
We noticed recently that people didn’t like it when Facebook “experimented” with their news feed. Even the FTC is getting involved. But guess what, everybody: if you use the Internet, you’re the subject of hundreds of experiments at any given time, on every site. That’s how websites work.
DonвЂ™t allow the Internet to become your congregation. YouTube is a horrible place to go to church.
Haters are just confused admirers.
The federal government seeks to control and regulate the Internet, but the last thing this Congress should be doing is trying to stifle public debate online.

I think the Internet, particularly the availability of information, is great. I do a lot of correspondence on-line and have a chat line to talk to my fans as well

Occasionally, I’ll be on the Internet and see something about me and give in to the urge to click on it. It’s hard not to. Usually, I wish I didn’t.

I make a joke that I’m the Internet curmudgeon, but ‘wary’ is a good way to put it.
Tribes will be defined by social enclaves on the internet, rather than by geography or kinship, but the world will be more fragmented and less tolerant, since ones real-world surroundings will not have the homogeneity of ones online clan.

There is not one shred of evidence that the Internet has had any downward influence on North American or European newspaper circulation.

With the Internet and social media being a huge part of today’s culture, I think it’s super important to promote staying smart online.

I want to fall in love with the internet, but I haven’t fallen in love with it yet, because I still have not given love on the internet.

I have been involved in Internet-related policy for approximately one decade, and I have been using the Internet myself for almost that period of time.

I think, over the last couple of years, the written word has made a comeback on the Internet. For example, I’m seeing more long-form narrative experiments there. The overall noise level, however, continues to increase. Do we really need TV screens to watch when we pump gas? Really?
Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters – all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing.

A domain name is your address, your address on the Internet. We all have a physical address; we’re all going to need an address in cyberspace. They’re becoming increasingly important. I believe we’ll get to the point where when you’re born, you’ll be issued a domain name.
Children who use the Internet are much better informed than when I was young. Use this to your advantage.

Internet radio stations like KCRW do take you everywhere, yet thats just one of a hundred small things you have to do to succeed. It used to be, if you just got on the cover of Rolling Stone and a spotlight on The Tonight Show, that was enough.
Over the past 10 years, the majority of value creation in the venture community has been in consumer Internet.
All of the great Disney works took works that were in the public domain and remixed them.
What’s got me excited about the education space is the growth of the Internet over the next 10, 20, 30 years.
I tour a lot and interview a lot. I’m on the Internet and doing stuff. I go out and promote. I’ve got a bass drum and a sandwich sign and a washboard. You just have to shout louder and louder that you’re still alive.
The Internet is such… it’s so not real. But it’s big and it feels big when you’re on it.
We worry a lot about ISIS traveling overseas from Syria to the United States, but I think one of the greatest fears are those already within the U.S. who are being radicalized and inspired by the ISIS propaganda that’s out there on the Internet.
It’s worth noting that everything – from the Internet to electric cars, genomic sequencing, mobile apps, and social media – were pioneered by startups, not existing companies.
The reason I said the Internet is dangerous is that a couple smart guys could hack into a computer and shut down the Eastern seaboard if they wanted to. It’s a terrible, out-of-control thing.
There’s no law on the internet. There’s no voice of reason. It’s every man for himself!
So I am a product of the Internet, and to some degree a product of this sensibility of constant cultural reference.
I follow the baseball team on the Internet more than I do the football team. Generally you can get a Nebraska game anywhere. Before I started doing big arenas and stuff and had a tour bus when I was just working comedy clubs way back when I would always listen to the games in my hotel room on the Internet.
We all have an interest in an open Internet.
Stand-up comedy is tough right now. Anybody can come to a concert, tape you, and put you up on the Internet. You either fight it or embrace it.
Russia should support globalization. The Internet can develop in Russia in a very speedy way.
We are going after a targeted group of businesses that are creating opportunities for themselves using other people’s property. The Internet has very little to do with this.
The story of the Internet is this incredibly strong, exciting change.
I think the internet is the greatest waste of time since masturbation was discovered.
We’re into this barrage of pop culture – you know, TV, movies, the Internet. We become creatures that we’ve made up, made of certain different flotsam from pop culture and certain different personas that are in style.
I am not an Internet superstar. I am, ironically perhaps, the most old media superstar of all time. My fame is due to broadcast television.
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
I love films, I love movies, I love television, I love television series, I love the internet, I love anything that enhances images. But most of all, I love, love movies.
There is so much media now with the Internet and people, and so easy and so cheap to start a newspaper or start a magazine, there’s just millions of voices and people want to be heard.
It’s connectivity that really makes the industrial Internet work: it’s giving the right information at the right time to the right person or right machine to make the right decision.
There’s no real template to follow these days for what a band should and shouldn’t be – bands are just becoming these weird little Internet avatars that you either follow or download or interact with in some removed way.
Technology is in fact one of the most exciting things that’s happened to museums today – but one has to be careful about where one uses it. For instance, the Internet provides an incredible opportunity. It is a way for us to reach audiences around the world and further our educational mission.
So rather than face the bitter truth, China has placed severe restrictions on the Internet and enlisted America’s high-tech companies as their Internet police.
The ‘Net is a waste of time.
We have too many cellphones. We’ve got too many internets. We have got to get rid of those machines. We have too many machines now.
This is the most important principle of reading on the Internet: You must determine for yourself whether or not something is true.
The Internet is accelerating the speed of acceptance and social justice.
The Internet wasn’t even an option for me, so one of the reasons I was so motivated to do street art was because there was no other outlet. Maybe if the Internet had been around then, I would have tried to do stuff that went viral and was clever and got me a lot of hits.
Internet safety begins at home and that is why my legislation would require the Federal Trade Commission to design and publish a unique website to serve as a clearinghouse and resource for parents, teachers and children for information on the dangers of surfing the Internet.
Eventually, if you had a printer that is IPP compliant, that printer will have a Web address and anyone around the world who can get on the Internet can print to that URL.
The focus of entertainment is taking away from what the public needs as news. I think investigative journalism will always be important and always find its way, be it on the Internet or wherever.
Now along comes the potential creative destruction brought by a different distribution methodology, the Internet.
To me, the Internet is a big scam.
The Internet is a big distraction. It’s distracting, it’s meaningless; it’s not real. It’s in the air somewhere.
We live in the Internet age. Everyone wants clicks. Clicks are what sells.
Something will eventually replace the Internet. But it’s hard to know what and when it will happen.
Before the internet, big publications were like hydrants in the desert. There were relatively few of them, we needed each one of them tremendously and they had control over what was delivered. Now they are like little streams flowing into a massive ocean.
The Internet is the Viagra of big business.
So, what does it mean for teaching and learning programming when the solution to every beginner problem is available on the Internet?
The left and the right live in parallel universes. The right listens to talk radio, the left’s on the Internet and they just reinforce one another. They have no sense of reality. I have now one ambition: to retire before it becomes essential to tweet.
Because you know, we live in an era now where everything is pushed. We live in a push world where everything gets pushed to you. It’s like, I don’t have to wait for you to send it to me, I’ll go get it off the Internet. So it was difficult to be back in that sort of situation. But it was cool.
We started out on the Internet, so I’ve been reading what people had to say about stuff since we were getting mean comments on iFilm, before we even had our site going. People are really, really rough on the web – that’s their right, that’s the whole point of it – but sometimes it can be a little bit brutal.
Human beings are attracted to novelty: to probe the adjacent possible. We didnt stay in the caves. We didnt stay on the planet, and soon we wont stay within the limitations of our biology. We move forward. We transcend our limits. We go to the moon, and we create the Internet.
The Internet is the most effective instrument we have for globalization.
If employees need to stay late in order to curry favor with the boss, what motivation do they have to get work done during normal business hours? After all, they can put in the requisite ‘face time’ whether they are surfing the Internet or analyzing customer data.
I wouldn’t be surprised if history records Tim Berners-Lee as the second Gutenberg.
Right now with blogs and the flood of internet access, a multitude of aspiring writers think they’re ready for prime time. They’re not. Be great. Read. Write. Bust your ass. Learn and find your voice. As hard as you think it is, it’s a hundred times harder.
That was clearly surprising, interesting – a very interesting milestone was when you can pick up a magazine and read an article about some sort of computer related thing and they mention the word internet without explaining it.
The whole, ‘Is the internet a good thing or a bad thing’? We’re done with that. It’s just a thing. How to maximise its civic value, its public good – that’s the really big challenge.
Before the Internet, coordinating more than 100,000 people, let alone paying them, was essentially impossible. But now with the Internet, I’ve just shown you a project where we’ve gotten 750 million people to help us digitize human knowledge.
I worked on local papers, before taking a job as a webmaster with a very well known telecommunications company in London, as I thought the internet was the future.
The case for democracy is not esthetic.
One of the Internet’s strengths is its ability to help consumers find the right needle in a digital haystack of data.
I can’t blame modern technology for my predilection for distraction, not after all the hours I’ve spent watching lost balloons disappear into the clouds. I did it before the Internet, and I’ll do it after the apocalypse, assuming we still have helium and weak-gripped children.
I don’t worry about anything in the Internet age. I have been online since I was aware of it: 1985 in San Francisco. It has changed everything in my life. I would not want to even be alive in an era that did not have it because it is essential to our evolution as a species.
The times that we are in, it’s something that you can only feel in the air. You don’t even have to talk about it. You don’t need the news or the Internet to watch it. You can walk outside and just feel it.
The ‘Main Street’ retailers … see customers come to the store to locate items … only to leave and order the items over the Internet just to escape the sales tax.
You could take the Internet enthusiasm that was happening in 1999 and 2000 here in the U.S., and in China it was three-to-five times more ebullient.
Getting information from the internet is like getting a glass of water from the Niagara Falls.
I think that new communications are wonderful and I am delighted to be a part of the Internet generation
I think it may be even a bigger story than the internet. You know, it’s like saying, ‘how big a deal is the internet?’ The Chinese middle-class is going to change the world.

If I do need to make money suddenly, I prefer to just draw something I want to draw and have someone else sell it for me on the Internet.

Prior to the internet, the last technology that had any real effect on the way people sat down and talked together was the table
Magazines that depend on photography, and design, and long reads, and quality stuff, are going to do just fine despite the Internet and cable news.
Make no mistake; child predation on the Internet is a growing problem.
New and stirring things are belittled because if they are not belittled the humiliating question arises ‘Why then are you not taking part in them?
when one went fishing in information networks, one also became fish food.
When a country doesn’t have a good economic infrastructure, that harms the country. With Stripe, the idea is that by providing better infrastructure, by linking the Internet economically, by making it easier for these online businesses to exist, it’ll make the web better.
All the signs of incipient activism and uprising, from Tahrir square to Zuccotti Park to [the recent] shutdown of the Internet to protest web censorship. People are getting smart and getting connected.
The younger generation is surrounded by the Internet, apps, and video games. But somehow, my books make them read.
As a research tool, the internet is invaluable.
People are hurting out there, perhaps they are ready to start a conversation about whether an AR-15 belongs in the hands of a citizen, whether a citizen should be able 6,000 rounds on the internet.
There is a new bill in the Senate that is upsetting a lot of people. This bill would give the President the power to shut off the Internet. Al Gore is strongly opposed to it. Not because he invented the Internet. Because he did. But because he just signed up for Match.com.
I do go back to Russia frequently, about twice a year. I hate the flight, but it’s worth it. My parents have a home in a little village of 12 houses. It’s not on any map, so unless you know it’s there, you won’t find it. Nothing works there; no Internet, no cell phone, and the land line only works sometimes. It’s great!
I’m an Internet junkie.
If I go back to when Borat and Ali G. were doing it, they were more just TV, cinema, TV, cinema. Whereas I live in more of the Internet age where people like to feel like they can still touch you, and so it’s important for me not to almost box myself off.
Trying to control information in the network age is about as successful as pissing into the wind.
That definitely I feel is part of my generation: social networking, communication over the Internet, whether it’s Skype or IRC or some form of text-based chat, text messaging.
There is no such thing as unlawful censorship in the home. Movies, magazines, television, videos, the Internet, and other media are there as guests and should only be welcomed when they are appropriate for family enjoyment.
It’s interesting in this day and age to do a film about political espionage and wiretapping. I don’t think that those types of secrets that J. Edgar Hoover was able to obtain and keep for such a long period of time would be possible in today’s world, with the Internet and WikiLeaks.
There was a clear lesson here вЂ” and that was that the Internet loves Mister Splashy Pants.
Many people are noting the difference between Hillary Clinton’s friendly public appearances and her blunt and direct Twitter account. Yeah, she’s nice in person, and mean on the Internet. You know, kinda like EVERYONE.
It’s very difficult for governments to dominate the Internet because it’s so difficult to control. People want to be free. People want to hear multiple voices. They want to make their own decisions. And people who see things will report things.
We are not living in the ’80s or ’90s. We are living in the age of technology. If you want to be in business, you can’t be intimidated by the Internet – you have got to dive in there head first. You can find out how to start your business. Everything you need to learn is right there.
The development of the Internet has posed new challenges to national sovereignty, security and development interests.
But the web is to some degree a broth of psychopaths seeing what they can get away with in circumstances of anonymity. Look, we live in a world where one is unsafe in various ways because of the Internet. Anything can be said. Someone can look at your house from space.
Fashion, in a way, has become like pop culture today. With all of the communications and the Internet and the designers doing lines with big brands, it’s more popular than it’s ever been, but everything is all mixed together. It’s become like television or music.
[…] to judge from the Internet postings that people have sent me, probably most of what you learned [about me] was nonsense.
The difference between me and other people in my generation is instead of saying the Internet’s killing the record business, I say, ‘Who cares about the record business, the Internet is enhancing music.
Without having to ask anyone’s permission, innovators everywhere used the Internet’s open platform to start companies that have transformed how billions of people live and work.
With DNS, it’s possible to control key components of Internet navigation. Google already controls search, they are quickly gaining market share to control the browser, and when you put in DNS, it becomes the trifecta of complete navigational control.
What I like that is getting our smartest and getting our best to infiltrate their [terrorist’s] Internet, so that we know exactly where they’re going, exactly where they’re going to be. I like that better.
The Internet has made some phenomenal breakthroughs that are still only poorly understood in terms of changing people’s ideas of us and them. If mass media, social isolation in the suburbs, alienating workplaces and long car commutes create a bunker mentality, the Internet does the opposite.
Back in the pre-internet age there were pirate publishers, especially in the third world, who would print physical copies of books, sell them, and never inform the author/their agent/their publisher just trousering the money. I think we can agree that this was piracy?
Today, if you have an Internet connection, you have at your fingertips an amount of information previously available only to those with access to the world’s greatest libraries – indeed, in most respects what is available through the Internet dwarfs those libraries, and it is incomparably easier to find what you need.
What’s really important about WikiLeaks is that the Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans. They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions. Then they have given that information to WikiLeaks for the purpose of putting it on the Internet.
I started NetSuite. NetSuite was my idea. I called up Evan Goldberg and said, ‘We’re going to do ERP on the Internet, software-as-a-service.’ Six months later Marc Benioff, finding out what NetSuite was doing, and kind of copied it.
The Internet has really democratized ideas. There are no real gatekeepers any more, because if you have a great idea, and you put it online, people will find it and it will get in front of who it needs to get in front of.
On the internet nobody can hear you being subtle.
Human evolution, at first, seems extraordinary. How could the process that gave rise to slugs and oak trees and fish produce a creature that can fly to the moon and invent the Internet and cross the ocean in boats?
I started getting into Internet technologies and computers. I wasn’t especially interested in being a musician, but I wound up finding my way back to being interested in music through computers.
Media used to be one way. Everyone else in the world just had to listen. Now the internet is allowing what used to be a monologue to become a dialogue. I think that’s healthy.
Obviously there’s so much about me on the Internet that you can turn against me, and you can make me into any person you want.
If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.
There are managers so preoccupied with their e-mail messages that they never look up from their screens to see what’s happening in the nondigital world
I want the ability to monitor high-tech communications among far-flung terrorists. I want to be able to have our people learn their plans before they strike. That’s the key.
The Internet is the easiest thing to get into. To be an Internet retailer, you just get that URL.
The Internet offers an interesting combination of advertising and community by participating in the community you can become an advertisement for yourself.
200,000 ISIS tweets a day, 1,000 investigations in all 50 states. It’s really hard to stop all of it. But we have to get control over this Internet propaganda that is poisoning the minds of the United States.
Green technologies – going green – is bigger than the Internet. It could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century.
Hot girls have so many options. Sitting at home alone any night of the week and searching the Internet for a dude is on zero hot girls’ agendas. So they’re definitely not coming after you.
I think with each generation comes more opportunity. At least that’s the way that I see it. I grew up in a generation that watched the birth of the internet. We all have. But I feel like I look around at the generation younger than me and it’s a very opportunistic mantra.
How do you not like the Internet? That’s like saying, ‘I don’t like things that are convenient. And easy. I don’t like having access to all of mankind’s recorded discoveries at my fingertips. I don’t like light. And knowledge.
I have an almost religious zeal… not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me, the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature, linking up.
Obviously the Internet makes everything easier – you get people’s addresses and so on and everything seems much more accessible.
I also wanted Parker to operate in the Internet age without losing being Parker. He’s always operated in the world without really being with the world, and cyberspace means that the rest of us are more and more living the same way.
The Internet has usurped the collective unconscious and access to cosmic consciousness has become difficult and almost primitive.
The reality is that the “gayborhoods” are going away. It’s because of many factors, including the internet and increased acceptance, but mostly it’s the cost of housing.
The internet, like social media, seems to me to depend on how you use it, where you spend your time on it. I used to be quite anti-social media, but I can see now that it can be a good tool for artists, a way for us to speak to each other outside of standard economies and across languages and borders.
I think individuals have a right to privacy, but that ought to include the right to prevent private institutions from monitoring what you do and building up a personal profile for you so that they can direct you in particular ways by their effective control over the internet, and that doesn’t happen of course.
On the Internet, you can form a community without having to go through the trouble of meeting anyone.
When the Internet arrived in Ireland… it was like having Amsterdam’s Red Light District in your own living room.
The internet might be a convenience, but it hasn’t yet, for me, been a fundamental reordering. These things are supposed to be time-savers, so you have more time standing at your easel if you so choose.
I definitely feel like there’s a lot of terrible things on the Internet, obviously. You can really pretty much find anything on there. It’s pretty awful. And the crazy thing is that we don’t even access that much of it – it’s like the dark web or whatever. It’s the other Internet that we don’t even access.
The good news is that because terrorist groups rely so heavily on the internet, it offers new avenues for the U.S. and its allies to fight them.
In order to have quality journalism you need to have a good income stream, and no Internet model has produced a way of generating income that would pay for good-quality investigative journalism.
Here we are signing autographs for people who essentially know know how to write their name and are functionally literate. But if you cease to teach cursive writing, how does one know how to, I donвЂ™t know, replicate the Declaration of Independence? Or the orations of Cicero? Is it just going to be on the internet?
Eight billion people will have Internet access by 2020.
One of the biggest problems with the Internet: people thinking they know something or are participating in or experiencing something when they aren’t. Or, how people think they are staying in touch with their friends by “liking” their pictures.
Passion is inversely proportional to the amount of real information available
Female users are the unsung heroines behind the most engaging, fastest growing, and most valuable consumer Internet and e-commerce companies.
While the Internet is censored in China, the censorship is allowing a level of speech to take place that’s unprecedented.
Someone on the internet referred to me as ‘that horrible little man who’s replacing Rob Lowe’, which is hurtful, because I think of myself as a delightful little man.
What’s true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That’s why the most resilient things in our world – biological life, stock markets, the Internet – are loosely organized.
I look for businesses in which I think I can predict what they’re going to look like in ten to fifteen years time. Take Wrigley’s chewing gum. I don’t think the internet is going to change how people chew gum.
It is not hard to see why the FBI wants wiretapping backdoors. It would certainly make its job easier. But rejiggering the Internet so government can conveniently monitor everything we say and do online is too high a price to pay for making law enforcement more efficient.
The core problem is that the world is full of people who would like to take 99 per cent of the information that’s on the Internet, and eliminate 1 per cent. Everyone has their own thing they don’t like.
Facebook has woven itself into the fabric of our lives and the foundation of the Internet. I think everything will be redefined because people are using their real identities on the Internet.
It was really bizarre for me to go from being a very private and obscure person and then to be in any way on the internet – like having my picture or videos online.
The internet is like a surround system, a landscape at its most benign, a closed system of surveillance and self-surveillance at its more sinister. Something we can no longer imagine an outside of.
The biggest part of our business has always been moving things, not paper. With the Internet, people in Mississippi can buy things from Macedonia, without regard to time or place or quantity.
Advertising at its worst will be killed by the Internet. And rightly so.
People are mostly focused on defending the computers on the Internet, and there’s been surprisingly little attention to defending the Internet itself as a communications medium. And I think we probably do need to pay some more attention to that, because it’s actually kind of fragile.
I think especially with the Internet and the amount of reality shows that are going on, there’s no way to keep a secret anymore, so I try to let my project be as much as reality show as I can allow it to be.
I’ve learned a lot about things because of the Internet. I’m happy with it, but it’s a long road for me. I’m still definitely a little anti.
But everyone asks me who my dad is and I will never reveal it. It’s too much ammunition for the internet.
Both the American people and nations that censor the internet should understand that our government is committed to helping promote internet freedom.
I don’t want to be famous or recognizable. I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet… I’ve been writing pop songs for pop stars for a couple years and see what their lives are like, and that’s just not something I want.
When I was very young, Denmark was a very small country, and we still are, but it was then very provincial and everybody knew everybody. Now, we are very much like the rest of the world, especially with the arrival of the internet.
Although I have no plans to tweet, I am fascinated by developments on the Internet.
I use all kinds of resources for researching my novels. I’m not shy about calling up experts and asking questions, or emailing, or buying textbooks and references. The Internet is always a brilliant way to find instant facts, but it’s not a great way to really understand your subjects in depth without a lot of work.
Most of my life, I read what is said on IMDB. The fans on the Raw is War board make the most sense of any Internet fan, apart from the one or two that create second accounts to bash me. Keep the board alive-uh. Paul Levesque
The hardest thing is trying not to correct everything on the Internet. It’d be night and day – wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. So you just have to say, ‘All right, I’ll take it, bring it on.’
I was always fascinated with the way that things pop on the Internet – the ways you build communities and create little stories and ideas that people play around with and send back to you.
[On Chinese Internet,] freedom is a targeted and precise window.
Let’s do 150 stops. Let’s go to 75 universities, and let’s spread this gospel of Internet entrepreneurship everywhere we go.
Remember, ‘governance’ is a big word that includes human rights, freedom of speech, economic transactions on a worldwide basis – it touches everything. It’s everywhere, and that’s why Internet governance is Topic A in many corners.
The strange thing was, when I was starting on YouTube, even the paradigm of YouTube and Internet sensation – or whatever – that didn’t really exist. So I didn’t even know that that was a thing.
To own the dominant, or only, newspaper in a mid-sized American city was, for many decades, a kind of license to print money. In the Internet age, however, no one has figured out how to rescue the newspaper in the United States or abroad.
The internet to me is kind of like a black hole, and I never really go on it.
It’s been my policy to view the Internet not as an ‘information highway’, but as an electronic asylum filled with babbling loonies.
I’m not well versed on the verbiage of the internet.
I get so frustrated when it takes longer than a couple of seconds to load a page – I couldn’t live without the Internet now.
Saving the Internet requires a greater sense of shared ownership and fewer bystanders accepting whatever today’s Internet has to offer.
I sometimes wonder how we spent leisure time before satellite television and Internet came alongвЂ¦and then I realise that I have spent more than half of my life in the вЂdark agesвЂ™!
Once I found out that people were really making careers for themselves off the Internet, independently, I was really inspired.
Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
The Internet is just one big gossip chamber – that’s why it’s so fascinating and entertaining. It’s a fabulous platform for superficial communication.
The ‘World Wide Web’, as people quaintly called the Internet in 1996, was more or less made up of text. There was no YouTube. There was no Facebook. There was, however, Usenet, a loose and difficult-to-navigate assortment of message boards.
E-mail is a modern Penny Post: the world is a single city with a single postal rate.
Linux evolved in a completely different way. From nearly the beginning, it was rather casually hacked on by huge numbers of volunteers coordinating only through the Internet.
I don’t go online, I don’t read reviews, I try not to look at anything on the Internet.
Are Singaporeans so easily offended? Please. Have more of a backbone and thick-skin. Are you going to go on a frenzied witch hunt just because some foreigner called you a loser on the Internet?
Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.
When two human beings get together, they’re co-present, there is built into it a certain responsibility we have for each other, and when people are co-present in family relationships and other relationships, that responsibility is there. You can’t just turn off a person. On the Internet, you can.
Won’t it be sad to have an Internet connection to Mars if there are no Martians to write to or e-mail us?
When it comes to the Internet, people like dealing with people.
In the ever accelerating world of the Internet, e-campaigning has gone from a novelty to a necessity in less than a year. With increasing sophistication and urgency, campaigns are using the Web as a bulletin board, advertising medium and organizing tool.
First, I used some of my own experiences and observations from attending a public high school. Secondly, I joined in some Internet chat rooms for gays and lesbians.
I think all Internet comments should be disengaged. But I kind of live and die by it. It’s completely irresistible. It’s not like comedy. When I do a podcast or write an episode of TV, I have no feedback for that. That’s the only way you know what you’re doing is good or bad.
Back before the internet we had a name for people who bought a single copy of our books and lent them to all their friends without charging: we called them “librarians”.
I think this is the kind of thing where we’re rapidly moving toward an age where most of the populace will be almost unable to imagine life without an Internet component interlocked with it.
My books are not really books; theyre endless chains of distraction shoved inside a cover. Many of them begin at the search box of Pub Med, an Internet database of medical journal articles.
Basically, to sum up: We’re a generation of anarchists, and we just haven’t gotten our hands on the means of production yet so we can fetter the wheels. We haven’t been handed the controls yet except to the Internet, which is why it looks like it does.
I’ve never read any of the ’50 Shades of Grey’ books because the Internet pre-educated me about the ‘my inner goddess is doing the merengue with some salsa moves’ material.
The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.
The Internet is a great information tool, and can be a place where kids learn, but we must remember that when kids are online, they are in public.
I think the internet is a great marketing tool–but marketing is not my job. I’m a writer. My job is to write novels.
The Internet opens up a whole new range of possibilities in a wide range of areas.
Take Wrigley’s Chewing Gum. I don’t think the Internet is going to change how people chew gum.
Almost all of the many predictions now being made about 1996 hinge on the internet’s continuing exponential growth. But I predict the internet will soon go spectacularly supernova and in 1996 catastrophically collapse.
I’m very disciplined, but the one thing that I have addictive behavior about is the Internet.
One of the amazing things about the Internet is that the content creators are the gatekeepers. We can think of an idea and execute it quickly, and we didn’t have to pitch the idea to a major network or convince a studio head to sign-off on the concept.
Texting, even browsing the Internet – all these things can attract monsters.
In America we’re in this awful situation, and you know, I hardly get any royalties anymore because music is just stolen from the internet.
Steal my stuff off the internet wherever you can and don’t apologize. Buy the CDs and DVDs from my site and feel free to burn ’em and share ’em. Then come to the show.
I don’t feel qualified to comment on whether or not the internet has damaged collaboration and creativity. That is not my experience… my experience is that I have had access to meeting people online that I might otherwise not have met, gone on to meet them in real life and collaborated on fun projects.
As the Internet of things advances, the very notion of a clear dividing line between reality and virtual reality becomes blurred, sometimes in creative ways.
One Chinese tweet is equal to 3.5 English tweets. … Because of this, the Chinese really regard this microblogging as a media, not only a headline to media.
What’s unique about [4chan] is that it’s anonymous, and it has no memory. There’s no archive, there are no barriers, there’s no registration. … That’s led to this discussion that’s completely raw, completely unfiltered.
The web site and the Internet are a whole new ball game.
In the end, the whole Internet thing kills me, because you can use it as a positive thing or you can read into all the negativity. And I think you’ve gotta put out positive energy, put out cool viral stuff, and then just stay out of people’s opinions.
The Internet is an almost miraculous way of getting information, of finding and organizing with each other, both minutely and globally. A million times better than the phone and the mimeograph! Also much better than TV, which is one-way and passive.
I think the Internet has real potential for building community. People all around the world talking to each other can’t be a bad thing.
There’s a serendipity to real life that the Internet can’t duplicate. Do you use the library? For anything? Well, sometimes you end up picking up the book next to the one you were looking for, and it’s that book that changes your life.
At the end of the day, the internet is a fair space. A medium of infinite resource. And something we’ve never had before, ever. But people aren’t connecting the dots, and that’s what scares me.
It’s like they say in the Internet world вЂ” if you’re doing the same thing today you were doing six months ago, you’re doing the wrong thing. Parents can learn a lot from that.
It seems like there’d be no Donald Trump without the internet, first of all. He’s a tweeter, which is basically just a bullhorn.
The Internet nowadays is all sensationalism, and it’s just terrifying when you’re actually experiencing it as a person.
I do think the internet has killed the mystery of the planet. It’s removed the pain, the passion, and the struggle – I firmly believe they’re all part of creativity.
The Internet is completely over.
The Internet is an incredible business tool. First of all, the Internet/the cell phone – the cell phone is just another way to get at it – I think is having a huge impact in Africa most particularly, where it enables people – suddenly, they know crop prices. They can communicate. It makes their lives more efficient.
Things are moving quicker and quicker. The internet age has made everything so immediate that what you’re doing can start to feel outdated. That’s probably the single thing that will most affect the fashion system in the near future. Time is the biggest subject matter in fashion today.
I never approved either the errors of his book, or the trivial truths he so vigorously laid down. I have, however, stoutly taken his side when absurd men have condemned him for these same truths.
The government invented the Internet.
I started using the Internet in 1999. That was pretty late. But as soon as I did I just stopped watching TV. The idea of sitting down and waiting for a TV show at a certain time, I couldn’t do this anymore. The Internet is a better form of entertainment to me.
Just as we could have rode into the sunset, along came the Internet, and it tripled the significance of the PC.
In the end, science offers us the only way out of politics. And if we allow science to become politicized, then we are lost. We will enter the Internet version of the dark ages, an era of shifting fears and wild prejudices, transmitted to people who don’t know any better.
This is an important part of the Internet Dynamic – providing opportunity and not guarantees.
We don’t pay a whole lot of attention to the Internet until people have played the game – then we pay a lot of attention to whether people liked it. We read through it and see it, but we don’t take it into consideration. … [The Internet] is not going to dictate the direction of where the game goes.
Nowadays anyone can show their art to anybody via the Internet.
That is what I want to make clear today. A man with a long history of racial discrimination, who traffics in dark conspiracy theories drawn from the pages of supermarket tabloids and the far, dark reaches of the Internet, should never run our government or command our military.
Look for when the environment is changing – the big shift now is mobile Internet. It’s really happening big-time. The way you interact with services on a smart phone compared to the Web is quite different, so there’s a huge opportunity.
Turning the Internet over to the U.N. or some other phony international organization would be a disaster, and I am not willing to stand by and let it happen.
The Internet is a giant ‘lab experiment’ for corporate America, and those companies that recognise this and play well within the rules of ambiguity and fluidity will survive and win.
If you look at some of the smaller capital markets in Asia, when they want funding, they either come here to Hong Kong or they go to California, the mecca of the Internet, because they can capture the liquidity and then move on and do what they want to do, which is develop a business.
Any unique image that you desire probably already exists on the internet or in some database… the problem today is no longer how to create the right image, but how to find an already existing one.
I’m easy to find on the Internet.
When I was 8 or 9, I started using bulletin board systems, which was the precursor to the Internet, where you’d dial into… a shared system and shared computers. I’ve had an email address since the late ’80s, when I was 8 or 9 years old, and then I got on the Internet in ’93 when it was first starting out.
The most important thing is to make the technology inclusive – make the world change. Next, pay attention to those people who are 30 years old, because those are the internet generation. They will change the world; they are the builders of the world.
Well, there’s that girl on the Internet – although this isn’t an example of someone who doesn’t know they’re on – but there’s a girl on the Internet who posts one photograph every two minutes from her bedroom.
The iPhone is made on a global scale, and it blends computers, the Internet, communications, and artificial intelligence in one blockbuster, game-changing innovation. It reflects so many of the things that our contemporary world is good at – indeed, great at.
If the Internet is worth its salt, it has to help arrest the forces that promote inequality, monopoly, hypercommercialism, corruption, depoliticization and stagnation.
The Internet lets women use words, which is their natural tool. Little girls speak in more complex, grammatical sentences than little boys do, and women never lose that superiority in verbal ability.
There is a point beyond which even justice becomes unjust.
There’s something magical about spending a Sunday night watching real people at a deli, then watching fake people pretending to be real on TV, then engaging in (arguably) false interaction with (arguably) real people on the Internet. Never at any prior point in time has this been possible.
You have to have access to ideas. The Internet is facilitating that access to ideas. In 25 years, the way that data’s going to flow back and forth, we don’t quite understand yet.
I can’t in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.
I love it when these Internet dudes say to me, ‘Hey man, we just want to be ‘content neutral.’

A free and open Internet should not have to be weighed down by legal challenges – its dynamism is essential to our economy.
Since the revelations, we have seen a massive sea change in the technological basis and makeup of the Internet.
Even when I went to America I didn’t work for four years. It wasn’t like I came to New York and it was the land of milk and honey. It was just as much of a hard graft. But there’s a lot more opportunity nowadays across the board for actors, no matter what color you are, with the Internet and small productions.
There was a time not long ago when stories about Internet crimes were a tough sell for TV newsmagazines. Executive producers were wary because images of people typing on keyboards and video of computer monitors did not make especially compelling TV, even when combined with emotional interviews with victims.
Today’s clunky smart glasses will be replaced by smart contact lenses. We’ll command them by voice, blinking, or even thinking, to interact visually in 3-D with the Internet.
Facebook was looking at which links I clicked on, and it was noticing that I was clicking more on my liberal friends’ links than on my conservative friends’ links. And without consulting me about it, it had edited them out. They disappeared.
The Star Trek computer doesn’t seem that interesting. They ask it random questions, it thinks for a while. I think we can do better than that.
If the U.N. were to be successful in its efforts to control the Internet, countries where human rights records range from questionable to criminal could be put in charge of determining what is and is not allowed to appear online.
It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that the Internet has evolved into a force strong enough to reflect the greatest hopes and fears of those who use it. After all, it was designed to withstand nuclear war, not just the puny huffs and puffs of politicians and religious fanatics.
The Internet is the most democratic communication platform in history, largely because we’ve had network neutrality rules that make sure all web traffic is treated equally, and no voices are discriminated against.
The Internet gave us access to everything; but it also gave everything access to us.
Now that I’m in the position I’m in now, I like to take all my creative ideas and put ’em on the Internet for my fans to interact with. Give ’em something to do.
You gotta understand, you can’t look at no pictures and look at the media and the critics and what they saying on no Internet.
I feel like in one year it’s very easy to go from Internet poster boy to Internet piСЃata.
I love computers. I love writing on them. I love gadgetry. The thing is: I am a slow reader. So, if I am going to get my work done, I read, like, a newspaper and that’s it. If I got into websites and the internet, I wouldn’t get any work done.
My rule is never to look at anything on the Internet.
There’s huge access to information. If you need to learn something, you can go on the Internet and learn very quickly. You can reach across miles and miles to find companies that can assist you.
If there is an event for whatever reason, which interferes with the Internet or network communications, are people able to deal with it? It seems like our dependency on these systems is so great that the room for maneuver as it were is very small. So that is problematic.
I was always told that Hoosier came from when settlers in the state, when a stranger came on their property they’d say, “Who’s there? Who’s there?” So people that were from Indiana were the people that said “Who’s there?” But what do I know? I don’t read or interact with people outside the Internet.
I learned to stop looking on the Internet pretty early on.
If you forget about the money issue for just a minute, if it’s possible to do that – because these are people’s livelihoods we’re talking about – and you look at Internet in terms of the most amazing broadcasting network ever built, then it’s completely different. In some ways, that’s the best way of looking at it.
In the digital age, fast and secure Internet access is a necessity for Central Virginia families, students, and businesses – but in many of our rural Virginia communities, unreliable high-speed broadband Internet drastically limits the scope of opportunities for growth and success.
I first started using the internet back when a 14.4 modem was considered fast. I think I was about 11 or 12, and it fascinated me that you could look at all these different things on your computer.
Having done quite a bit with studios and networks, I thought if I’m going to do something new and unformed, it would be fun to do it in a completely new space and place. The space being the Internet and the place being Crackle.
It’s traumatic to meditate on the availability of information through the Internet, or the way we perceive the world as a result. People don’t experience things totally or viscerally anymore. It’s all through representation, be it a record on YouTube or a post on a blog.
Putting a stop to internet gambling is a necessary reform that targets flagrant violations of state and federal laws.
There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible.
It’s more egalitarian on the Internet – anyone can put anything up. But in terms of the money it takes to allow a band to get good, there’s less of it to invest.
The man scarce lives who is not more credulous than he ought to be… The natural disposition is always to believe. It is acquired wisdom and experience only that teach incredulity, and they very seldom teach it enough.
Nothing really says … interactivity – which was so exciting and captures the real, the Web Zeitgeist of 1995 – than ‘Click here for a picture of my dog.’
The internet is 95 percent porn and spam
If culture did not filter, it would be inane – as inane as the formless, boundless Internet is on its own. And if we all possessed the boundless knowledge of the Web, we would be idiots! Culture is an instrument for making a hierarchical system of intellectual labor.
If you look at the top 20 companies of the world, 19 of them are still brick-and-mortar companies. I have nothing against tech companies. What I am saying is that if you have a car manufacturer or an oil and gas manufacturer, you won’t get the supply over the Net.
Social media is the basis of my career. Since I was a kid I’ve always used the Internet as a space to express myself creatively.
We’ve had such a close relationship with the fans. Through social networking and the internet, we have much more contact, and we did go to things like Comic-Con. So, I think people know most of our secrets.
There is a project that’s underway called the interplanetary Internet. It’s in operation between Earth and Mars. It’s operating on the International Space Station. It’s part of the spacecraft that’s in orbit around the Sun that’s rendezvoused with two planets.
There is something sexy about a computer nerd.
I’m a woofer, not a tweeter; a writer, not a telegrapher; an essayist, not an aphorist.
The Internet of Money, bitcoin, is releasing 50 yrs. of pent up innovation in finance, because it offers innovation without permission.
We’re trying to build a platform utilizing the Internet that allows the good American people to speak out about their frustration about the polarized country that we live in politically.
The Net as a whole is not that reliable, so our blips in service don’t cause major problems.
However, we are certainly working on improving our own reliability as well as those sites that we depend on.
However, we are certainly working on improving our own reliability as well as those sites that we depend on.
From the beginning, the internet has been dominated by white men. So if you wanted to be a part of the internet and you weren’t a white man, you had to adapt yourself to their world.
For many oppositional movements, the Internet, while providing the opportunity to distribute information more quickly and cheaper, may have actually made their struggle more difficult in the long run.
Never stop testing, and your advertising will never stop improving. Testing was used in advertising decades ago. The internet has made testing so easy that every online marketer can use it to improve advertising results. Google content experiment is a free tool for you to do split testing.
My wife [Tina Brown] co-founded the Daily Beast, so I have no hostility to the web or Internet. A number of print friends of mine regard it as the worst thing that’s ever happened, but I don’t.
Technology has always been a catalyst for change, such as the invention of the airplane or the Internet.
Search, which is extremely important, represents about 5% of the page views on the Internet and 40% of the revenue. So, highly monetized.
I have three desks. One empty for paperwork, one for the internet and email, and one for the writing computer.
Hollywood and the recording industry argue that current law permits the copying of songs and movies, and sharing them on the Internet. This enables young people to grow up learning how to steal.

In 6,000 years of storytelling, [people have] gone from depicting hunting on cave walls to depicting Shakespeare on Facebook walls.
Everybody has a different Internet.
Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds.
The Internet is global and seemingly omniscient, while iPods and phones are all microscopic workings encased in plastic blobjects. Compare that to a steam engine, where you can watch the pistons move and feel the heat of its boilers. I think we miss that visceral appeal of the machine.
No woman or girl is going to want to spend time looking at pretty dresses on the Internet. Vogue is going to be around for a long time to come.
The Open Internet principles were not legal rules adopted by the FCC; they were effectively a press statement posted on the FCC website.

But it is as silly to think about peer-to-peer as applying just to music as it would have been to think about the Internet as applying just to pornography. Whatever the initial use of the technology, it has nothing to do with the potential of the architecture to serve many other extremely important functions.
[Internet] is amazing as much as human beings can be amazing, and it’s debased and depraved and vile as human beings can be.
The Internet has been a blessing and a curse. The curse we know: A lot of people appropriating your intellectual property without paying for it. But I think it’s important to realize the blessing of the Internet, which is that everybody has a voice and you can break through, even without a record company.
The US government should be the champion for the internet, not a threat. They need to be much more transparent about what they’re doing, or otherwise people will believe the worst.
Given a choice between dancing pigs and security, users will pick dancing pigs every time.
Nowadays, everybody assumes, when they wake up in the morning, if they have a question, it will get answered. Because they have the internet. No matter what the question is, someone will answer their question.
I’m probably on the internet way more than I should be. I don’t know. I love connecting people. I love introducing people to other people who are doing incredible work in the world. And I’m just on the internet too damn much.
If we bought everything on the Internet, our eyes and mouths and nostrils would probably begin to film over with a tegument – one initially tissue-thin and capable of being removed each morning, but which gradually thickened and hardened until we were imprisoned in our own tiny minds.
The Internet, of course, is more than a place to find pictures of people having sex with dogs.
As it turns out, there is a thing called the Internet, and stuff does go out there whether the suits like it or not.
The internet kind of feels like happiness sometimes, however. It feels like stimulation.

There never was a great soul that did not have some divine inspiration.
Social media has been an incredible tool to connect to my fan base, and collaborate with people around the world. Some of my biggest breaks have come through people hearing my music on the Internet and then contacting me through social media.
I know my name gets used illegally all the time all over the internet. You know, it is a trademarked name, so it will be something that we always have to deal with. I never needed to change it. It was always fine with me. It is a strange name; that’s for sure.
Like the Internet, Bitcoin will change the way people interact and do business around the world.
If you don’t optimize for the consumer on the Internet, you’re dead.
The Internet goes doot-doot-doot – it goes sideways. There’s nothing hierarchical about it. And the best thing about it is also the worst thing about it, which is there are no gatekeepers on the Internet. Consequently, there’s a whole lot of bad information on the Internet. But I think that sorts itself out over time.
The rise of the Internet has caused the demise of the record labels, and has destroyed the music business of old, but it’s also created new opportunities for young artists.
Google docs and spreadsheets don’t work if you’re on an airplane. But it’s a technical problem that is going to get solved. Eventually you will be able to work on a plane as if you are connected and, then when you get reconnected to the Internet, your computer will just synchronize with the cloud.
We’ve seen that there are a lot of people out there – teenagers in Topeka, housewives in Long Island, millionaire Internet start-up moguls – that all want to connect with each other about what it is to be human.
I don’t think that the Internet has contributed greatly to immorality.
Not as much as I used to, but I use the Internet for everything. I use it for information. Like if I’m planning a trip or something, I’ll check out the place I’m going to.
I don’t understand the world of the Internet. I just type up on my computer.
In the new music landscape, with is the democratization of the internet and music in general, I think it can be a lot more collaborative.
I came from the last couple of years in a generation where we didn’t have a computer around so we didn’t waste as much time on the internet as we do now so I had large chuncks of time which to devote to doing something.
What sets the The Next Web apart is a focus on the internet as a key driver for a global market. Their international view is unique, making their blogs a must read and their conferences a must attend for professionals like me who do business around the globe
People now, especially with the Internet, are connected. They have an expectation of behaviour, of accountability, avoiding conflict and fair and just competition.
If I were a Chinese dissident, I’d be grateful that Cisco had helped bring the Internet to China, but I’d also be outraged that Cisco may have helped the cops keep me under surveillance and catch me trying to organize protest activities.
We will have more Internet, larger numbers of users, more mobile access, more speed, more things online and more appliances we can control over the Internet.

Where’s there’s money involved, there are no good guys.

Remember America, I gave you the Internet and I can take it away.
I think many years from now, people will still watch television, though it will probably be 150 inches wide. What will change is the ability to get ‘CSI’ not only on TV but also on the Internet, even watching it in a foreign country as it’s playing in the US.
I must confess that I’ve never trusted the Web. I’ve always seen it as a coward’s tool. Where does it live? How do you hold it personally responsible? Can you put a distributed network of fiber-optic cable “on notice”? And is it male or female? In other words, can I challenge it to a fight?
Thanks to the internet, I buy lots of music, but thanks to my easily distracted nature, I forget about half of it!
Kids today know way more than you think they do, with the Internet and 500 TV channels.
The world of digital media is being transformed. A bunch of new businesses can be reinvented, thanks to social graphs, the mobile internet, and the new shopping habits of the young. Those are going to create a whole generation of cool new companies.
But don’t get caught out there looking goofy. It’s weird. When you do something that stinks, it’s going to last forever on the Internet. There’s always someone in the audience with a camera phone and if you’re not 100%, you’re going to be watching yourself on YouTube.
The Internet is part of this ongoing, species-long project we’ve been working on since we climbed down out of the trees in the savanna. We’ve been working on it without really knowing it.
The internet must be used to maximise open communication and we should encourage the expansion of its use.
When we look at the specific effect of the Internet on language, languages asking the question, ‘Has English become a different language as a result of the Internet?’ the answer has to be no.
Whenever there’s a camera around, a video or film camera, it’s a great deal harder for those in power to bury the story.
I just think the Internet has made us ruder.
Everything on the internet is real god damn it!
I just love entertaining. I will do anything – stand-up comedy, video games, fencing, internet shorts – I just want to keep being lucky enough to entertain people anyway I can. I try never to limit my art to a medium.
The internet has no government, no constitution, no laws, no rights, no police, no courts. Don’t talk about fairness or innocence, and don’t talk about what should be done. Instead, talk about what is being done and what will be done by the amorphous unreachable undefinable blob called the internet user base.
There is stupid. And then there is cyberstupid.
I’m like the Christina Aguilera of the Internet.
If I see anything remotely like a telcom-run faster internet that you have to pay more to get preferential traffic on, I’m out folks. I’ve seen this story before, I ran an ISP back in the late 90s.
The great thing about the Internet is that it allows people to find and consume music.
I’m noticing an exciting trend around the country: a resurgence of interest in Christian apologetics (the defense of the faith). This is a reaction to the current attacks on the essentials of Christianity that are coming from militant atheists, radical professors, and Internet gadflies.
Now, with the Internet, you’re either five years ahead or you’re five years behind, and the music game is catchin’ up right now.
What an excellent tool the internet is for freaks.
I’m kind of concerned the combined effect, not only Google, all these companies is kind of to make us more boring and that seems the opposite of what the Internet was supposed to be.
I know that this is the internet, and we’re all anonymous and all that, but really. It doesn’t hurt to try to be nice.
In general, the Internet was not designed to accommodate deliberate failures to communicate.
I think future generations will see the invention of the Internet as having been as important as the invention of the printing press. ItвЂ™s the democratizing tool of all tools. As long as no one can control the flow of information, then freedom always has a chance.
Companies whose marketing and sales departments are not using the Internet and social media for communication may have the same fate that the dime stores had when Wal-Mart came onto the scene.
There is clearly a constituency that appreciates the message that Google is sending, that it finds the Chinese government’s attitude to the Internet and censorship unacceptable.
It’s not sufficient in the internet age to communicate through the media; you have to be able to do it on the ground, door by door, coffee shop by coffee shop, shop floor by shop floor. You really have to do that as well.
Years ago when you’d go to a working group most of the people in the working group would be from universities. Now most of the people are from companies who are building internet products and care what the standards turn out to be.
What we need is a plan B … independent of the Internet. [It] doesn’t necessarily have to have the performance of the Internet, but the police department has to be able to call up the fire department.
To me, the last mile of the Internet that very few people have successfully really done. And this is like micro local. Things that really impact your life. And noone’s leveraging that yet.
Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so irritating.
We’d been noticing how much more important the internet had become – once information is out there in the world now, anyone can get it. Since that was beginning to happen with the record anyway, we figured, OK, let’s just stream it for free ourselves.
I’m not opposed to comics on the Internet. It’s just not interesting to me.
The accessibility and effective immortality of actual information is a magnificent phenomenon, a beautiful extension of human consciousness. It is too bad people find so many ways to abuse the internet, but that’s just how things are.
