Without the Internet I would have no fans and I wouldn’t be in this business. I owe everything to the Internet and my fans.
Justin Bieber
A tranquil city of good laws, fine architecture, and clean streets is like a classroom of obedient dullards, or a field of gelded bulls – whereas a city of anarchy is a city of promise.
Mark Helprin
The primary role of the music industry is to have artists be heard above the rest. It’s a big needle in a haystack problem. The Internet has the service and tools to find the needle in a haystack.
Ali Partovi
Whether you’re aware of it or not, any kind of collage idea becomes a part of how you see the world once you incorporate media and internet and video games and all these things.
I don’t have time, you know – I want to be able to get it [information] instantly on the internet and not have to think about it. Well, there is that phenomenon as well.
Noam Chomsky
If you have a kid and you try irony out on them, they don’t get it at 7, 8 years old. You can’t really hide the Internet from kids. It worries me some particularly because I’ve done Disney and Pixar stuff.
Randy Newman
If mass media, social isolation in the suburbs, alienating workplaces and long car commutes create a bunker mentality, the Internet does the opposite.
Alex Steffen
We really need the Internet to be that thing that we all dreamed of it being. We need it to connect us all together. We need it to introduce us to new ideas and new people and different perspectives. And it’s not going to do that if it leaves us all isolated in a Web of one.
Eli Pariser
The world is changing, and the Internet is about to become the next broadcast network.

Ann Patchett
I’m lucky enough to have been in the age before the internet and now during the internet. I’m grateful to be a witness to that. It’s horse and buggy versus car. To see how quickly things change has given me a renewed sense of optimism. Does that make sense?
Kathleen Hanna
You could go crazy thinking of how unprivate our lives really are – the omnipresent security cameras, the tracking data on our very smart phones, the porous state of our Internet selves, the trail of electronic crumbs we leave every day.
Susan Orlean
I live, I shop almost exclusively on the Internet. I’ve bought cars on the Internet. I watch television, I do everything on it. I even watch my son online.
Tom Ford
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.
Jarvis Cocker
What the internet has done is destroy film criticism. I would never have guessed that the profession of film criticism would be going the way of the dodo bird.
Quentin Tarantino
Before the Internet, if someone disappeared, it meant you should go looking for them. Now it means they got a life.
Ashish Chauhan
Every good writer I know needs to go into some deep, quiet place to do work that is fully imagined. And what the Internet brings is lots of vulgar data. It is the antithesis of the imagination. It leaves nothing to the imagination.
Jonathan Franzen
2012 was the year I saw Twitter as a negative. More people need to realise that not everything they read is true and that Internet trolls are a real problem.
Katherine Jenkins
The director of the FBI has been visiting Silicon Valley companies asking them to build back doors so that it can spy on what is being said online. The Department of Commerce is going after piracy. At home, the American government wants anything but Internet freedom.

Samuel Alito
The internet is a series of tubes, and all of those tubes are filled with Joe Francis’ semen.

Elizabeth Hoyt
If you don’t see the Internet as an opportunity, it will become a threat. In two or three year’s time, the Internet will become as commonplace in the office as the telephone.
Tony Blair
India’s great economic boom, the arrival of the Internet and outsourcing, have broken the wall between provincial India and the world.
Aravind Adiga

Shepard Fairey
Notwithstanding the fact that the most innovative and progressive space we’ve seen – the Internet – has been the place where intellectual property has been least respected. You know, facts don’t get in the way of this ideology.
Lawrence Lessig
With the internet, things are so much more immediate. People taste-test things to see if they want to buy the CD.
Michael Bolton
I don’t want people to see me fall. I mean, I got enough people cheering for me to fall now… The Internet has created some amazing place for evil to exist, you dig?
Steve Harvey
That’s one of the reasons I take a lot of consolation in fiction. You have years to work on it. I think that allows you to reach for the best part of your reader instead of a lot of the internet stuff, in which you’re kind of reaching for the worst or the most shallow part of your reader.
George Saunders
So as I look at transitioning to the communication platforms of the future, I see that the beauty of Internet protocols is you get the separation of the layers between service and technology.
Michael K. Powell
The best thing about the Internet is that it’s limited to however you want to do it. You don’t gotta talk to everybody, just use it as a outlet.
Internet marketing entrepreneurs have truly opened my eyes to just how important a quick turnaround time can be. Often times, an interview they conduct with me today is online by the next morning. The interviewee is then able to start making money less than 24 hours after the initial interview.
Marc Ostrofsky
The Turks who live here in Germany don’t get their information from German media. They read Turkish newspapers and watch Turkish television. A sort of parallel media world has developed in Germany, especially as a result of technological advances like satellite TV and the internet.
Fatih Ak?n
Compliance with the Stop Online Piracy Act would require huge overhead spending by Internet companies for staff and technologies dedicated to monitoring users and censoring any infringing material from being posted or transmitted.
Rebecca MacKinnon
China rightly identified consumer Internet as important and moved to protect it, and we need to do the same in India.

Dennis Miller
If you seek to help, join the open source community and fight to keep the spirit of the press alive and the internet free. I have been to the darkest corners of government, and what they fear is light.
Edward Snowden
I can assure the Court that I have no intention and there is no risk of my reactivating the website or establishing a similar Internet-based business during the period until the resolution of the extradition proceedings

At 16, I started a web development business and had clients from the Netherlands, Caribbean, and across the country – none of whom knew my age because I could conduct all my business with a phone, scanner, and the Internet.
Aaron Patzer
Thanks to secondary education and the Internet, we’re all knowledgeable now – if knowledge means the accumulation of facts. Curators are those who know how to maneuver around that knowledge.
Peter Greenaway
It is surprising that people are snapping photos and stuff and then putting them on the internet. For me, it is like, “Why would you want to do that?” It would be like knowing what your Christmas presents were before Christmas morning.
Michael Shannon
Stealing is stealing. I don’t care if it’s on the Internet or you’re breaking into a warehouse somewhere – it’s theft.
Patrick Leahy
We need to create a level regulatory playing field. It makes no sense for Internet giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter to be allowed to buy newspapers while a small AM radio station is prohibited from purchasing its local paper.
Ajit Pai
I will check the internet for at least an hour every morning scanning worldwide news to do with child abuse. So if you’re constantly putting yourself in an environment where you’re checking up on social economics or homelessness problems, if you keep yourself aware of it, you don’t really have a day off.
Samantha Morton
There was one issue on which there seemed to be almost unanimity: the Internet should not be managed by any government, national or multinational.

It is my belief that industry and government around the world should work even more closely to protect the privacy and security of Internet users, and promote the exchange of ideas, while respecting legitimate government considerations.
Bill Gates
If the FBI gets the ‘back doors’ it wants, Internet services would be required to create a massive online infrastructure for law enforcement to spy on members of the public.
Adam Cohen
Vivendi will be one of the very few top communications groups of the Internet age. We will have customers all over the globe, providing services through all kinds of technology.

Julius Genachowski
The electronic town hall allows for speedy communications and bad decision-making.
David Shenk

Natalie Dormer
The Internet is where we all go to for the first stop of information. It’s not the library any more, it’s the Internet and if I want to find out about Kate Russell, what do I do? I Google Kate Russell. Simple as that.
Theo Paphitis
I am everywhere and I am nowhere. That’s the beauty of the Internet Age.
Ai Weiwei
I know my dad is a big Internet freak, and he’s been known to be a Wikileaker.
Anthony Kiedis
Oasis were the last great, traditional rock ‘n’ roll band. We came along before the Internet so, if you wanted to see us, you had to be there. It makes me feel like a righteous old man.
Noel Gallagher
The Internet really does create this dimension around the music that’s always in relation to what else is happening at the moment. But all you can do is ignore the annoying hum of the machine and focus on making art that makes you excited to be alive.
Alan Palomo
The more you’ve got, the shorter it feels.
John Perry Barlow
Regarding social media, I really don’t understand what appears to be the general population’s lack of concern over privacy issues in publicizing their entire lives on the Internet for others to see to such an extent… but hey it’s them, not me, so whatever.

We’re still in the first minutes of the first day of the Internet revolution.

Bernie Sanders
I would hope that young girls could relate to me and see that the lives of people on the internet are not as perfect as they seem.
Emma Chamberlain
Some say Google is God. Others say Google is Satan. But if they think Google is too powerful, remember that with search engines unlike other companies, all it takes is a single click to go to another search engine.
Sergey Brin
On average, when you ask someone to perform a task on a site, they cannot do it. It’s not their fault; it’s the designer’s fault.

I’m glad to see the casual game play coming back now on the Internet, games that aren’t violent, that aren’t complex that you can sit down and you can have some fun.
Nolan Bushnell
Everyone on the Internet is sad. Why else would they be on the Internet?
Frankie Cosmos
OMG YOU GUYS it has come to my attention that SOMEONE on the internet is saying that my fictional 19th century zombies are NOT SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND. Naturally, I am crushed. To think, IF ONLY I’d consulted with a zombologist or two before sitting down to write, I could’ve avoided ALL THIS EMBARRASSMENT.
Cherie Priest
I’ll take on anybody on a competition that’s on the Internet.
Stacy Keibler

Computers and the Internet have made it really easy to rant. It’s made everyone overly opinionated.
Scott Weiland
Surveillance is the business model of the Internet.
Bruce Schneier
I never thought I’d end up as a computer freak, but that’s how the cookie crumbles. I do spend a lot of my time on the Internet, and often check out the different E-zines on the web, especially if something Iron Savior related is going down.
Yenz Leonhardt
What has a great value to us as a nation is the internet itself. The internet is critical infrastructure to the United States. We use the internet for every communication that businesses rely on every day.
Edward Snowden
Well, another market is being created now out of Internet technology.
Jim Barksdale
For new media reactionaries…the problem is technology, the endless distractions of the Internet, the breakdown of authority in an age of blogs and Twitter, the collapse of narrative in a hyper-linked, multi-networked world.
David L. Ulin
I’ve been able to find just as much interesting, exciting music through the Internet and iTunes… The personal interaction is not the same, and I’m not walking out of a store with a physical thing, so there’s definitely an element that is lost, for sure.
Colin Hanks
I think there’s gonna be three networks, and then the rest will be Internet-based, and Amazon is gonna be huge and one of the networks. This is so serious. Ha. But really, you see it happening right now. You can see the shifts.
Derek Waters
The serialization through the Internet or through digital portals, means of ways of communicating, and I think that’s great.
Keanu Reeves
Where are we going to reject that easy but flawed process of letting the intelligence services do whatever they want? It’s inevitable that it will happen. I think it’s going to be where Internet businesses go.
Edward Snowden
Trust me, the being-dead part is much easier than the dying part. If you can watch much television, then being dead will be a cinch. Actually, watching television and surfing the Internet are really excellent practice for being dead.
Chuck Palahniuk
We live in a time where everybody has an opinion and everyone’s opinion can be featured somewhere, whether it’s an online column and everybody has their form because of the internet.
Charlie Benante
When the next big problem comes online, be it the Euro crisis, nuclear proliferation, an overstretched Internet, a killer flu, or any of the other possibilities I consider in X-Events, we will suffer a complexity overload.
John L. Casti
An herbal medicine made from a plant native to Asia is about to be banned in the U.S. It’s known as either kratom or kratom, and forms of it are sold in shops and on the internet. In the next few weeks, kratom is set to be classified as a Schedule I drug. That puts it in the same category with marijuana and heroin.
Audie Cornish
Net neutrality has been in place since the very beginning of the Internet.
Al Franken
The key to using the Internet to extend and build relationships is to view ownership of information differently-you need to bring customers inside your business to create information partnerships … relationships become the differentiator, more than products or services. Businesses become intertwined.
Michael Dell
Men must fumble awhile with error to separate it from truth, I think- as long as they don’t seize the error hungrily because it has a pleasanter taste.
Walter M. Miller, Jr.
Brands are the solution, not the problem. Brands are how you sort out the cesspool.
Eric Schmidt
I also administer the Internet Assigned Names Authority, which is the central coordinator for the Internet address space, domain names and Internet protocol conventions essential to the use and operation of the Internet.
Jon Postel
I oppose piracy and want to see intellectual property protected because that is what fosters and rewards innovation. But SOPA won’t accomplish a meaningful reduction in piracy and causes massive collateral damage to the Internet ecosystem.
Jared Polis
You can feel a little vulnerable when you see people tearing you apart on the internet or saying, “It’s the end of music.” “This guy is a total hack.” I’ve read it all. But at the same time, even though I feel a little vulnerable with that, I do feel comfortable.
Girl Talk
In Turkey it was always 1952, in Malaysia 1937; Afghanistan was 1910 and Bolivia 1949. It is 20 years ago in the Soviet Union, 10 in Norway, five in France. It is always last year in Australia and next week in Japan.
Paul Theroux
Thousands of people were producing new Web sites every day. We were just trying to take all that stuff and organize it to make it useful.
David Filo
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.
Pete Cashmore
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 think the same kind of thing happens online, and I think that’s why a lot of women are hesitant to put their voice out there.
Jessica Valenti
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.
Vince Clarke
I don’t have faith in the Internet, I have faith in people connected through the Internet.
Jim Gilliam
That said, in the two weeks before I leave for the Dark Days tour, I am going radio silent, which means I will be avoiding the Internet at all costs in order to revise, revise, revise. I will miss you. Tris says hi, though.
Veronica Roth
E.Biscom is an Internet company that is diversified, not a diversified company that is trying out the Internet.
Silvio Scaglia
I don’t immerse myself in the Internet chatter because it opens you up to a whole source of danger.
Zachary Quinto
What the printing press is to Christianity in the 16th century, that’s what the Internet is doing to Islam now. It has opened up the monopoly over the interpretation of Islam that used to solely belong to the religious class.
Reza Aslan
I think kids in Europe have developed a deeper knowledge of music and of black music in particular. You go to Europe, and these kids know about all this obscure funk and soul that kids over here wouldn’t know. I think it’s getting better in the States, though, with the age of the Internet.
Lenny Kravitz
I watched the footage of Saddam being executed, and it really made me think…is there nothing on the internet that I won’t masturbate to?
Frankie Boyle
If the Internet has given us anything, it’s some idea of how much psychosis goes undiagnosed.
Jan Burke
I get mail; therefore I am.
Scott Adams
The Internet empowers individuals to play a more active role in the political process, as Obama’s campaign has manifested.
Al Gore
This is the real tragedy of America’s ‘Internet freedom agenda’: It’s going to be the dissidents in China and Iran who will pay for the hypocrisy that drove it from the very beginning.
Evgeny Morozov
When I say “miracle” I mean a kind of thing like a computer on a chip, or the internet, or the cellphone, that are really quite miraculous. Most people would not have predicted them, and their effect has been very, very dramatic.
Bill Gates
I can’t go on anymore bad dates. I would rather be home alone than out with some guy who sells socks on the internet.
Cynthia Nixon
Nowadays, everyone has a camera phone, and you have to be careful about being caught out there looking crazy and ending up on the Internet.
Keith Sweat
The old division of Left versus Right is dead. In the Internet age, it’s about citizens versus parliamentary relics.
Beppe Grillo
We talk about the Internet. That comes from science. Weather forecasting. That comes from science. The main idea in all of biology is evolution. To not teach it to our young people is wrong.
Bill Nye
I agree with my father, Albert Einstein, don’t believe every quote you read on the internet.
James Earl Jones
The Internet has become a hate-filled town square with no limits put on destructive verbal behavior.
Bill O’Reilly
The Internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow.
Bill Gates
The dirty little secret that nobody likes to talk about is that things just might have been better before the Internet. We had more time to ourselves before cell phones and text messaging and Facebook consumed our lives.
Tom Green
The Internet will make every enterprise a publisher.
Steve Case
Writing, printing, and the Internet give a false sense of security about the permanence of culture.
Jane Jacobs
Society always needs a level playing field. In order to do that, you have to have opportunity, and providing that opportunity begins with ‘how do we bridge that gap,’ that so-called Digital Divide? How can we get internet into every home possible?
Jackie Joyner-Kersee
The Internet will change the way we work, live, learn, and play.
John T. Chambers
The Internet is a very powerful tool, but right now it’s being handled by a lot of fools. And I think us together, Marilyn Manson as a whole, what we all stand for, should be the biggest spider on the web. I think that it will become our web. Not something that uses us, but something that we will control
Marilyn Manson
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.
Richard Branson
One of the important lessons of the Internet is, how easy it is to get things done completely shapes what gets created. For that reason, technologies like Amazon’s cloud service are very important. Even if they aren’t technically impressive, they make things easy to do.
Patrick Collison
If somebody has a bad reputation on the internet or if they have a really good reputation on the internet, I don’t care. I want to meet said person and make up my mind for myself, and then go from there.
Emma Chamberlain
I don’t like modernity. I don’t have television or the Internet at home. The Internet scares me. I can’t drive a car.
Lea Seydoux
I’m on Facebook and the Internet EVERY DAY NUMEROUS TIMES A DAY.Sorry about the shouting but I can’t help myself. My mother said her dog (a lapdog) never sits on my lap because I always have the laptop on it.
Franny Armstrong
I think the thing about the Internet is that it has so many characteristics that can be easily construed to be similar or almost identical to print that it can be misleading.
Khoi Vinh
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.
Trey Anastasio
You can think of the entire Internet as a place where ideas embodied in cyberspace are having a war, and it’s not much different than the war of gods in heaven, which has been taking place since there’s been human beings.
Jordan Peterson
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.
Cat Stevens
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.
Christian Rudder
Don’t allow the Internet to become your congregation. YouTube is a horrible place to go to church.
Albert Mohler
Haters are just confused admirers.
Justin Bieber
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.
Dennis Hastert
It should be like a driver’s license – no one can have an Instagram until they’re 18. It’s the wild, wild west, the internet.
Ingrid Michaelson
The poetry and transgression that was so much of surrealism’s anarchic force has been recruited into mainstream culture. It has been made commonplace by television and magazine merchandising, by computer games and Internet visuals, by film and MTV, by the fashion shoot.
Graham Joyce
Encryption…is a powerful defensive weapon for free people. It offers a technical guarantee of privacy, regardless of who is running the government… It’s hard to think of a more powerful, less dangerous tool for liberty.
Esther Dyson
Laptop computers dramatically increased the time people spend doing work. (The internet dramatically decreased it, so we’re even).
Seth Godin
What we are doing is taking advantage of the broadband Internet to provide basically unlimited free calls to anyone at a higher voice quality than they can with the phone lines.
Niklas Zennstrom
I enjoy being active, but I look forward to the day when I can retire to the Internet.
Daniel Kahneman
Televison allows thousands of people to laugh at the same joke and still remain alone.
Bertrand Russell
Whether it’s by helping us search for health-related information, connecting us with doctors through online portals, or enabling us to store and retrieve our medical records online, the Internet is starting to show the promise it has to transform the way people interact with and improve their own health and wellness.
Dean Ornish
There’s the classic charitable contribution, which we receive thousands, and we’re extremely grateful and they often come with notes from people, which are very heartwarming, about how much difference our products have made in their life on the Internet.
Mitchell Baker
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
Anne McCaffrey
Why pay a fee for Internet content when a million free sites are just a click away? There’s no incentive until people are too addicted to the Net to turn off their computers, yet are bored with what’s available.
Nathan Myhrvold
The lesson of the Internet is that no audience is too small.
Randall L. Stephenson
The Internet destroyed most of the barriers to publication. The cost of being a publisher dropped to almost zero with two interesting immediate results: anybody can publish, and more importantly, you can publish whatever you want.
Dick Costolo
The internet is a great way to get on the net.
Bob Dole
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.
Carrie Underwood
I think the Internet has hurt music more than it has helped it. The idea of giving music away for free just bothers me. And, when one band or artist gives it away, it devalues the rest of the product from those who would like to make some money or a living from it.
Steve Mahoney
People who didn’t live pre-Internet can’t grasp how devoid of ideas life in my hometown was. I stopped in the middle of the SAT to memorize a poem, because I thought, This is a great work of art and I’ll never see it again.
Mary Karr
I make a joke that I’m the Internet curmudgeon, but ‘wary’ is a good way to put it.
Bill Keller
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.
Jim Horning
There are so many ways now that people contribute through the Internet. We vet all of our contributions, and when something doesn’t meet our requirements or a donation exceeds the amount that’s allowed by the law, we return it.
Dan Donovan
That’s the beauty of the Web: You can roll around in a stranger’s obsession without having to smell his or her house. You can amscray whenever you want without being rude. The site gets its “hit” and you know more about our species’ diversity.
Penn Jillette
There is not one shred of evidence that the Internet has had any downward influence on North American or European newspaper circulation.
Conrad Black
I look at history, there’s not a government on the planet I respect. No country in history was ever safe to its women; internet sex is $100 billion a year industry, and 15-20 million men a day have sex with a child in sexual slavery.
Patch Adams
Universality has been the key enabler of innovation on the Web and will continue to be so in the future.
Tim Berners-Lee
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.
G. Hannelius
I play video games and watch TV, but there’s more to life than that. Faxing and the Internet have created a global community. The kid next door has become the kid in Latin America or Asia.
Craig Kielburger
If you don’t go far enough back in memory or far enough ahead in hope, your future will be impoverished.
Art Linkletter
The internet’s completely over.
The internet could be a very positive step towards education, organisation and participation in a meaningful society.
Noam Chomsky
Josh will begin disappearing into a future where the only place he and I remain friends is on the Internet.
Jay Asher
If you end internet neutrality and permit mergers of the big information technology corporations, that’s a form of rent seeking. It’s part of today’s political revolution.
Michael Hudson
The Internet has become a tool to pick on people and ruin someone’s life. I don’t think parents realize what’s going on.
Alexa Vega
If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they’re free for people to build upon as they see fit.
Lawrence Lessig
Why will I not give free service to my customers to get them used to mobile Internet, and to get every small town and village to use it? Everybody does promotions. In the internet world, free is normal.
Mukesh Ambani
The Internet is undermining moral values.
Mahathir Mohamad
I currently use Ubuntu Linux, on a standalone laptop – it has no Internet connection. I occasionally carry flash memory drives between this machine and the Macs that I use for network surfing and graphics; but I trust my family jewels only to Linux.
Donald Knuth
I’ve got more friends than I’ve ever had in my life at the age of 39 – although given that I didn’t have any friends until the age of 27, it doesn’t say much – because I found the internet.
Caitlin Moran
I always tell people go see something you don’t know about. Something you didn’t read a ton about on the internet. Something that you don’t know what’s going to happen because I think that kind of pleasure of finding something new and discovering it, creates a hunger in you.
Elvis Mitchell
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.
Terence Koh
I feel like comedy is doing well right now because there’s so many avenues to be seen. Whether it’s through the Internet with social media or web videos and now there’s so many networks and TV shows.
Hannibal Buress
If you’re going to invest in an Internet stock, you must be a long-term investor.
Jeff Bezos
The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
John Gilmour
I’m so thankful for the Internet because actors and singers and performers now have a way to connect with their fans on a very personal level which I think is quite special.
Ariana Grande
The green thing I don’t think frightens kids. It frightened me when I was like little because I didn’t have the internet and didn’t have all these other things that were, you know, in front of me at all times and accessible.
Mila Kunis
The Internet should be an open platform where you are free to go where you want and say and do what you want without having to ask anyone’s permission.
Ajit Pai
I’m pathetic when it comes to the Internet and getting stuff done.
Scott Eastwood
Half the people on the internet are bored and they have no life.
A fundamental new rule for business is that the Internet changes everything.
Bill Gates
People were doing business with one another through the Internet already, through bulletin boards. But on the Web, we could make it interactive, we could create an auction, we could create a real marketplace. And that’s really what triggered my imagination, if you will, and that’s what I did.
Pierre Omidyar
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.
Rick Boucher
People who say that only young people voted on the Internet, those who didn’t see Pele play, forget that children are not orphans. There’s always a father who buys the computer and perhaps influences their vote. I won the people’s vote.
Diego Maradona
I found out through the Internet that I have AIDS. I learned that I was dead. Where else would I find these things?
Layne Staley
The big downside to the global village that the Internet has created is that nothing has time to grow out of the public gaze and, even more dangerous, whatever your personal interests might be, there will always be someone somewhere to provide validation and encouragement.
Derek Ridgers
The thing about the Internet is the openness. People can link to each other themselves.
Niklas Zennstrom
By the late ’90s, those who were paying attention perceived the Internet as a 20-foot tidal wave coming, and we are all in kayaks.
Andy Grove
Our big goal should be to make connection to the Internet as common as connection to telephones is today.
William J. Clinton
The internet is the most underutilized advertising medium that’s out there.
Mary Meeker
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?
Charlie Pierce
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.
David Petraeus
Society has recognized over time that certain kinds of scientific inquiry can endanger society as a whole and has applied either directly, or through scientific/ethical constraints, restrictions on the kind and amount of research that can be done in those areas.
Bobby Ray Inman
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.
Bob Parsons
Children who use the Internet are much better informed than when I was young. Use this to your advantage.
Miep Gies
A lot of the point mags are going out of business. They dropped the pay tremendously and it’s all because of the internet. I used to go out once a month to LA and shoot for one week. I’d make a ton of money then come back to New York and do whatever I wanted.
Richard Kern
The Internet changes everything. People are online meeting boyfriends and girlfriends, you don’t have to be out drinking and drugging to find somebody nowadays.
Larry Tee
Every government is a parliament of whores. The trouble is, in a democracy, the whores are us.
P. J. O’Rourke
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.
Teddy Thompson
Over the past 10 years, the majority of value creation in the venture community has been in consumer Internet.
Bill Gurley
All of the great Disney works took works that were in the public domain and remixed them.
Lawrence Lessig
What’s got me excited about the education space is the growth of the Internet over the next 10, 20, 30 years.
Reed Hastings
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.
Al Jarreau
The Internet is such… it’s so not real. But it’s big and it feels big when you’re on it.
Doja Cat
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.
Michael McCaul
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.
Steve Blank
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.
John Mellencamp
There’s no law on the internet. There’s no voice of reason. It’s every man for himself!
Ariel Schulman
So I am a product of the Internet, and to some degree a product of this sensibility of constant cultural reference.
John Hodgman
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.
Larry the Cable Guy
We all have an interest in an open Internet.
Ajit Pai
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.
Jeff Dunham
Russia should support globalization. The Internet can develop in Russia in a very speedy way.
Anatoly Chubais
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.
Hilary Rosen
The story of the Internet is this incredibly strong, exciting change.
James Daly
I think the internet is the greatest waste of time since masturbation was discovered.
Norman Mailer
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.
Gillian Flynn
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.
John Hodgman
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
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.
Nicolas Winding Refn
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.
Rupert Murdoch
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.
John T. Chambers
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.
Alan Palomo
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.
Thomas P. Campbell
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.
Tom Lantos
The ‘Net is a waste of time.
William Gibson
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.
Ray Bradbury
This is the most important principle of reading on the Internet: You must determine for yourself whether or not something is true.
Stephen Downes
The Internet is accelerating the speed of acceptance and social justice.
Tyler Oakley
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.
Shepard Fairey
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.
Mike Fitzpatrick
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.
Robert Palmer
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.
Robert Redford
Now along comes the potential creative destruction brought by a different distribution methodology, the Internet.
Barry Diller
To me, the Internet is a big scam.
Ry Cooder
The Internet is a big distraction. It’s distracting, it’s meaningless; it’s not real. It’s in the air somewhere.
Ray Bradbury
We live in the Internet age. Everyone wants clicks. Clicks are what sells.
Trevor Noah
Something will eventually replace the Internet. But it’s hard to know what and when it will happen.
Reed Hastings
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.
Henry Blodget
The Internet is the Viagra of big business.
Jack Welch
So, what does it mean for teaching and learning programming when the solution to every beginner problem is available on the Internet?
Cay S. Horstmann
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.
Barney Frank
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.
Ja Rule
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.
Andy Samberg
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.
Jason Silva
The Internet is the most effective instrument we have for globalization.
Milton Friedman
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.
Robert Pozen
I wouldn’t be surprised if history records Tim Berners-Lee as the second Gutenberg.
Jeff Bezos
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.
Steven Pressfield
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.
Jon Postel
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.
Clay Shirky
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.
Luis von Ahn
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.
Neil Oliver
The case for democracy is not esthetic.
George Will
One of the Internet’s strengths is its ability to help consumers find the right needle in a digital haystack of data.
Jared Sandberg
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.
Colson Whitehead
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.
Augusten Burroughs
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.
Kendrick Lamar
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.
John McCain
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.
Mary Meeker
Getting information from the internet is like getting a glass of water from the Niagara Falls.
Arthur C. Clarke
I think that new communications are wonderful and I am delighted to be a part of the Internet generation
Judy Collins
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.
James Packer
High-speed Internet access, or broadband, is giving entrepreneurs anywhere an unprecedented chance to disrupt entire industries and transform our country.
Ajit Pai
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.
Chester Brown
We want to be able to service our customers more, like an Internet service. Our goal is to run one of the largest Internet services that enables people to use Windows on an everyday basis.
Satya Nadella
Prior to the internet, the last technology that had any real effect on the way people sat down and talked together was the table
Clay Shirky
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.
Jann Wenner
Make no mistake; child predation on the Internet is a growing problem.
Mike Fitzpatrick
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?
H. G. Wells
when one went fishing in information networks, one also became fish food.
Carol O’Connell
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.
John Collison
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.
Bill McKibben
The younger generation is surrounded by the Internet, apps, and video games. But somehow, my books make them read.
Chetan Bhagat
As a research tool, the internet is invaluable.
Noam Chomsky
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.
Brian Williams
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
Craig Ferguson
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!
Olesya Rulin
I’m an Internet junkie.
Marion Jones
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.
Michael Dapaah
Trying to control information in the network age is about as successful as pissing into the wind.
Keith Henson
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.
Duncan Jones
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.
M. Russell Ballard
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.
Leonardo DiCaprio
There was a clear lesson here — and that was that the Internet loves Mister Splashy Pants.
Alexis Ohanian
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.
Jimmy Fallon
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.
Eric Schmidt
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.
Bryan-Michael Cox
The development of the Internet has posed new challenges to national sovereignty, security and development interests.
Xi Jinping
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.
William Monahan
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.
Nicolas Ghesquiere
[…] to judge from the Internet postings that people have sent me, probably most of what you learned [about me] was nonsense.
Theodore Kaczynski
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.
Daryl Hall
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.
Ajit Pai
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.
David Ulevitch
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.
Donald Trump
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.
Alex Steffen
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?
Charles Stross
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.
Peter Singer
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.
Hillary Clinton
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.
Larry Ellison
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.
Justin Halpern
On the internet nobody can hear you being subtle.
Linus Torvalds
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?
Steven Pinker
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.
Eric Avery
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.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
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.
Zachary Cole Smith
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.
Louis D. Brandeis
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
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
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.
William J. Clinton
The Internet is the easiest thing to get into. To be an Internet retailer, you just get that URL.
Bill Gates
The Internet offers an interesting combination of advertising and community by participating in the community you can become an advertisement for yourself.
Walter Jon Williams
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.
Michael McCaul
Green technologies – going green – is bigger than the Internet. It could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century.
John Doerr
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.
Adam DeVine
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.
Justin Timberlake
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.
Rainbow Rowell
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.
Dan Millman
Obviously the Internet makes everything easier – you get people’s addresses and so on and everything seems much more accessible.
Lynne Tillman
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.
Donald E. Westlake
The Internet has usurped the collective unconscious and access to cosmic consciousness has become difficult and almost primitive.
Marc Maron
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.
Cleve Jones
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.
Micheline Aharonian Marcom
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.
Noam Chomsky
On the Internet, you can form a community without having to go through the trouble of meeting anyone.
Ian Jack
When the Internet arrived in Ireland… it was like having Amsterdam’s Red Light District in your own living room.
Tom Dunne
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.
Joe Bradley
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.
Miles Heizer
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.
Dina Temple-Raston
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.
Bill Bryson
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 don’t know, replicate the Declaration of Independence? Or the orations of Cicero? Is it just going to be on the internet?
Peter Weller
Eight billion people will have Internet access by 2020.
Peter Diamandis
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.
Derek Waters
Passion is inversely proportional to the amount of real information available
Gregory Benford
Female users are the unsung heroines behind the most engaging, fastest growing, and most valuable consumer Internet and e-commerce companies.
Aileen Lee
While the Internet is censored in China, the censorship is allowing a level of speech to take place that’s unprecedented.
Ethan Zuckerman
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.
Joshua Malina
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.
Gary Hamel
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.
Warren Buffett
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.
Adam Cohen
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.
Eric Schmidt
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.
Ruchi Sanghvi
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.
Erika M. Anderson
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.
Tom Burr
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.
Frederick W. Smith
Advertising at its worst will be killed by the Internet. And rightly so.
Maurice Saatchi
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.
Danny Hillis
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.
Jason Mraz
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.
Patrick Stump
But everyone asks me who my dad is and I will never reveal it. It’s too much ammunition for the internet.
AJ Tracey
Both the American people and nations that censor the internet should understand that our government is committed to helping promote internet freedom.
Hillary Clinton
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.
Michala Petri
Although I have no plans to tweet, I am fascinated by developments on the Internet.
Oscar de la Renta
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.
Rachel Caine
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
Bill Vaughan
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.’
George Clooney
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.
John Hodgman
[On Chinese Internet,] freedom is a targeted and precise window.
Michael Anti
Let’s do 150 stops. Let’s go to 75 universities, and let’s spread this gospel of Internet entrepreneurship everywhere we go.
Alexis Ohanian
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.
Vint Cerf
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.
Bo Burnham
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.
Eric Alterman
The internet to me is kind of like a black hole, and I never really go on it.
Jennifer Lawrence
It’s been my policy to view the Internet not as an ‘information highway’, but as an electronic asylum filled with babbling loonies.
Mike Royko
I’m not well versed on the verbiage of the internet.
Larry Hagman
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.
Jay Sean
Saving the Internet requires a greater sense of shared ownership and fewer bystanders accepting whatever today’s Internet has to offer.
Mitchell Baker
I sometimes wonder how we spent leisure time before satellite television and Internet came along…and then I realise that I have spent more than half of my life in the ‘dark ages’!
Arthur C. Clarke
Once I found out that people were really making careers for themselves off the Internet, independently, I was really inspired.
Lil Peep
Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.
Mitchell Kapor
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.
Sufjan Stevens
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.
Michelle Dean
E-mail is a modern Penny Post: the world is a single city with a single postal rate.
Anne Fadiman
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.
Eric S. Raymond
I don’t go online, I don’t read reviews, I try not to look at anything on the Internet.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson
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?
Calvin Cheng
Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.
Ronald Reagan
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.
Neil Postman
Won’t it be sad to have an Internet connection to Mars if there are no Martians to write to or e-mail us?
William J. Clinton
When it comes to the Internet, people like dealing with people.
Bob Parsons
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.
Howard Fineman
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.
Ellen Muth
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.
Harris Wittels
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”.
Charles Stross
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.
Chuck Klosterman
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.
Mary Roach
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.
Mark Pesce
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.
Andrea Seigel
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.
Tim Berners-Lee
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.
Mark Kennedy
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.
Bentley Little
The Internet opens up a whole new range of possibilities in a wide range of areas.
Herbie Hancock
Take Wrigley’s Chewing Gum. I don’t think the Internet is going to change how people chew gum.
Warren Buffett
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.
Robert Metcalfe
I’m very disciplined, but the one thing that I have addictive behavior about is the Internet.
Dani Shapiro
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.
Ray William Johnson
Texting, even browsing the Internet – all these things can attract monsters.
Rick Riordan
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.
Terry Bozzio
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.
Doug Stanhope
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.
Horace Panter
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.
Geoff Mulgan
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.
Michael Anti
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.
Christopher Poole
The web site and the Internet are a whole new ball game.
Johnny Rivers
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.
Nikki Sixx
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.
Gloria Steinem
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.
Greg Brown
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.
Laura Lippman
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.
Eli Russell Linnetz
It’s like they say in the Internet world — 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.
Bruce Feiler
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.
John Cameron Mitchell
The Internet nowadays is all sensationalism, and it’s just terrifying when you’re actually experiencing it as a person.
Bradford Cox
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.
Don Letts
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.
Esther Dyson
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.
Peter Dundas
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.
Jon Meacham
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.
Tom Anderson
Just as we could have rode into the sunset, along came the Internet, and it tripled the significance of the PC.
Andy Grove
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.
Michael Crichton
This is an important part of the Internet Dynamic – providing opportunity and not guarantees.
Bob Frankston
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.
Shigeru Miyamoto
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.
Hillary Clinton
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.
Niklas Zennstrom
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.
John Doolittle
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.
Dan Pena
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.
Richard Li
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.
Lev Manovich
I’m easy to find on the Internet.
Matt Cohler
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.
Aaron Patzer
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.
Jack Ma
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.
Peter Weir
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.
Tyler Cowen
If the Internet is worth its salt, it has to help arrest the forces that promote inequality, monopoly, hypercommercialism, corruption, depoliticization and stagnation.
Robert Waterman McChesney
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.
Helen Fisher
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.
Diablo Cody
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.
Michael Nesmith
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.
Edward Snowden
I love it when these Internet dudes say to me, ‘Hey man, we just want to be ‘content neutral.’
Harvey Weinstein
I just love when the Internet is wrong. It’s the only thing that will save journalism.
Rick Moranis
I’m surrendering myself to the realities of the Internet.
Scott Adams
We’re not in this for the fast money. Really, what we want is to be part of this industry.
David Filo
A free and open Internet should not have to be weighed down by legal challenges – its dynamism is essential to our economy.
Anna Eshoo
Since the revelations, we have seen a massive sea change in the technological basis and makeup of the Internet.
Edward Snowden
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.
Idris Elba
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.
Chris Hansen
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.
Michio Kaku
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.
Eli Pariser
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.
Larry Page
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.
John Doolittle
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.
Denise Caruso
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.
Patrisse Cullors
The Internet gave us access to everything; but it also gave everything access to us.
James Veitch
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.
Soulja Boy
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.
Young Thug
I feel like in one year it’s very easy to go from Internet poster boy to Internet piСЃata.
Jeff Bezos
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.
Stephen Sondheim
My rule is never to look at anything on the Internet.
Emilia Clarke
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.
Fred DeLuca
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.
Misha Glenny
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.
Jim Gaffigan
I learned to stop looking on the Internet pretty early on.
Sam Riley
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.
Thom Yorke
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.
Abigail Spanberger
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.
Chris Kluwe
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.
Jerry Seinfeld
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.
Sufjan Stevens
Putting a stop to internet gambling is a necessary reform that targets flagrant violations of state and federal laws.
John Shadegg
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.
Evgeny Morozov
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.
Chris Martin
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.
Adam Smith
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.’
Steven Johnson
The internet is 95 percent porn and spam
Margaret Atwood
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.
Umberto Eco
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.
Anil Ambani
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.
John Noble
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.
Vint Cerf
There is something sexy about a computer nerd.
Sandra Bullock
I’m a woofer, not a tweeter; a writer, not a telegrapher; an essayist, not an aphorist.
Richard Turner
The Internet of Money, bitcoin, is releasing 50 yrs. of pent up innovation in finance, because it offers innovation without permission.
Andreas Antonopoulos
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.
Hamilton Jordan
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.
David Filo
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.
Arthur Chu
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.
Evgeny Morozov
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.
David Ogilvy
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.
Harold Evans
Technology has always been a catalyst for change, such as the invention of the airplane or the Internet.
Grant Imahara
Search, which is extremely important, represents about 5% of the page views on the Internet and 40% of the revenue. So, highly monetized.
Terry Semel
I have three desks. One empty for paperwork, one for the internet and email, and one for the writing computer.
Lee Child
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.
Suzanne Fields
I feel like the internet also affects originality a lot, because music is so easily shared nowadays, it seems like artists have collectively explored most of the grounds that music has to offer.
Mr. Carmack
In 6,000 years of storytelling, [people have] gone from depicting hunting on cave walls to depicting Shakespeare on Facebook walls.
Joe Sabia
Everybody has a different Internet.
Bruce Sterling
Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds.
John Perry Barlow
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.
Scott Westerfeld
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.
Felix Dennis
The Open Internet principles were not legal rules adopted by the FCC; they were effectively a press statement posted on the FCC website.
Marvin Ammori
There certainly was a lot of potential in the air for doing a magazine which focused on the way business, in particular, was being transformed by the Internet.
James Daly
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.
Lawrence Lessig
[Internet] is amazing as much as human beings can be amazing, and it’s debased and depraved and vile as human beings can be.
Werner Herzog
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.
Gloria Estefan
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.
Mark Zuckerberg
Given a choice between dancing pigs and security, users will pick dancing pigs every time.
Edward Felten
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.
Jack White
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.
Solange Knowles
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.
Will Self
The Internet, of course, is more than a place to find pictures of people having sex with dogs.
Philip Elmer-DeWitt
As it turns out, there is a thing called the Internet, and stuff does go out there whether the suits like it or not.
Al Yankovic
The internet kind of feels like happiness sometimes, however. It feels like stimulation.
George Saunders
In Japan, they have TV sets in cars right now, where you can punch up traffic routes, weather, everything! You can get Internet access already in cars in Japan, so within the next 2 to 3 years it’s gonna be so crazy!
Glenn Danzig
If you think you can experience the power of the Internet on a 1-inch screen, you’ve got to be out of your mind.
Martin Cooper
There never was a great soul that did not have some divine inspiration.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
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.
Wendy Starland
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.
Dweezil Zappa
Like the Internet, Bitcoin will change the way people interact and do business around the world.
Erik Voorhees
If you don’t optimize for the consumer on the Internet, you’re dead.
Dara Khosrowshahi
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.
Molly Ivins
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.
Judy Collins
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.
Eric Schmidt
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.
Rainn Wilson
I don’t think that the Internet has contributed greatly to immorality.
Gordon B. Hinckley
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.
Catherine Bell
I don’t understand the world of the Internet. I just type up on my computer.
Andre Leon Talley
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.
Adrian Grenier
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.
John Mayer
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
Werner Vogels
People now, especially with the Internet, are connected. They have an expectation of behaviour, of accountability, avoiding conflict and fair and just competition.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
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.
Rebecca MacKinnon
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.
Vint Cerf
Radio and TV can still push a band, but things need to be shaken up. There is the Internet, but mostly what I see there is little kids on YouTube playing music.
Chris Cornell
I also follow chess on the Internet, where Kasparov’s site is very interesting.
Boris Spassky
The internet is like a gossipy girls’ locker room after school, isn’t it?
Alex Kapranos
Where’s there’s money involved, there are no good guys.
Robert Glaser
Turns out, theres not a lot of information about pickles on the Internet.
Brian Posehn
Size and synergies between the different segments of the company matter. As far as we are concerned, the Internet is broadening our opportunity, as well as for other big media companies with huge resources in sports, entertainment and news. There’s just more opportunity.
Rupert Murdoch
Remember America, I gave you the Internet and I can take it away.
Al Gore
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.
Leslie Moonves
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?
Stephen Colbert
Thanks to the internet, I buy lots of music, but thanks to my easily distracted nature, I forget about half of it!
Al Murray
Kids today know way more than you think they do, with the Internet and 500 TV channels.
Rodney Carrington
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.
Bing Gordon
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.
Jamie Foxx
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.
William Gibson
The internet must be used to maximise open communication and we should encourage the expansion of its use.
Helen Zille
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.
David Crystal
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.
Peter Gabriel
I just think the Internet has made us ruder.
Rick Warren
Everything on the internet is real god damn it!
Bill Gates
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.
Matthew Gray Gubler
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.
Paul Vixie
There is stupid. And then there is cyberstupid.
Michael Grunwald
I’m like the Christina Aguilera of the Internet.
Sky Ferreira
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.
Drew Curtis
The great thing about the Internet is that it allows people to find and consume music.
Andy Taylor
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.
Lee Strobel
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.
Steig Larsson
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.
Tim Wu
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.
Neil Gaiman
Javascript is the duct tape of the Internet.
Charlie Campbell
In general, the Internet was not designed to accommodate deliberate failures to communicate.
Daniel J. Bernstein
I think future generations will see the invention of the Internet as having been as important as the invention of the printing press. It’s the democratizing tool of all tools. As long as no one can control the flow of information, then freedom always has a chance.
Marianne Williamson
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.
Bill Capodagli
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.
Rebecca MacKinnon
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.
Stephen Harper
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.
Jon Postel
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.
Danny Hillis
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.
Sarah Lacy
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.
Bill Gates
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.
Jeff Tweedy
I’m not opposed to comics on the Internet. It’s just not interesting to me.
Daniel Clowes
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.
Marilynne Robinson
