Bitcoin is not an actual physical coin, and if computer
Bitcoin is not an actual physical coin, and if computers are shut down, you can’t buy or sell them. That’s why nothing will ever replace gold and silver coins themselves, and all investors should have them at home or in a safe deposit box.

Mark Skousen
Even though most people won’t be directly involved with programming, everyone is affected by computers, so an educated person should have a good understanding of how computer hardware, software, and networks operate.

Brian Kernighan
Musicians and journalists are the canaries in the coalmine, but, eventually, as computers get more and more powerful, it will kill off all middle-class professions.

Jaron Lanier
Instead of the cashier and ticket-ripper of the movie theater, the block chain consists of thousands of computers that can process digital tickets, money, and many other fiduciary objects in digital form. Think of thousands of robots wearing green eye shades, all checking each other’s accounting.

Nick Szabo
There are a lot of Yahoo users who live in countries where their freedom of expression and freedom of association is not respected and where the government is trying to put malware on their computers to track them.

Alex Stamos
There’s no other major item most of us own that is as confusing, unpredictable and unreliable as our personal computers.

Marc Andreessen
Computers are very expensive and they need power, and that can be a problem in Africa.

Mo Ibrahim

Gerhard Richter
Environmental advocates say that changing how much power computers and monitors use in idle mode can cut greenhouse gas emissions without requiring consumers to change their behavior.

Tatiana Schlossberg
Computers add convenience to our everyday lives, but we are limited in what we can do with technology others have imagined. The ability for humans to teach machines entirely new things – coding – is nothing short of a superpower.

Tobias Lutke
Yeah, computers are going to take over the programming business because they have become so fast recently that they can solve the Halting Problem in five seconds flat.

Craig Bruce
My e-mail address is actually my wife’s e-mail address. I actually hate computers.

Joe Sakic
When I moved to New York City to go college, my mother said, ‘If you want to be recognized, you need to go out to a club.’ Because we didn’t have computers. We didn’t have social media. We didn’t even have cellphones. So you had to go out to be recognized.

Michelle Visage
The contrast of ISIL’s videos – which proclaim a fully-functioning and prosperous state – with those of RBSS, which captured the dysfunction and violence of everyday life, is shocking. In a sense, it’s a war of ideas, a war of propaganda, a war being waged with cameras and computers, not just guns.

Matthew Heineman
One of the biggest challenges we had in the first decade was not that many people had personal computers. There weren’t that many people to sell to, and it was hard to identify them.

Steve Case
I got into computers back in the early ’80s, so it was a natural progression of learning about e-mail in the mid-’80s and getting into the Internet when it opened up in the early ’90s.

Roger McGuinn
We are the greatest computers in this world, but now we’ve created the smart phone which is smarter than us now, but we’re still making dumb decisions. We have given our creations more power than we have, and that to me is dumb.

Bootsy Collins
I always loved computers – it’s something inside you.

George M. Church
Comedy has sort of been my life-long obsession. I literally obsessed over comedy. I really didn’t play sports – for me it was just comedy, computers and chess club; those were my big things.

Chris Hardwick
Beatbullying’s ‘The Big March 2012’ is such a brilliant campaign and I am very proud to be a part of it. I have been a victim of cyber bullying myself and I know firsthand just how hurtful it can be. People think that they can hide behind computers and send nasty and hurtful comments to people, and this is wrong.

Katherine Jenkins
When I was younger, I would look at a game with computers and still be fascinated by the possibilities.

Hikaru Nakamura
I don’t take for granted all the blessings that I have, and as soon as I heard about Computers for Youth, I really wanted to be involved. Anyone who knows me knows how much time I spend on computers. I’m a computer addict. Every young person deserves to have a computer in his or her home.

Bow Wow
We think of computers as smart and powerful machines. But your goldfish is smarter.

Jason Fried
I like people writing great songs on guitar or piano or what have you. I miss people getting on stage with real bands and real instruments and expressing themselves that way instead of with computers and technology.

John 5
You can model experiments on computers now and then execute them, and you don’t actually need a fully stocked lab.

Arvind Gupta
I believe in the potential of all things possibly imagined that can be made into a reality. My uncle was a Swedish scientist, and in the 1970s, he would speak of computers controlling most things in the future and self-driving cars and wireless communication. All the things that we are living with now.

Dean Haglund
With our work at Kazaa, we began seeing growing broadband connections and more powerful computers and more streaming multimedia, and we saw that the traditional way of communicating by phone no longer made a lot of sense.

Ernest Cline
AIM was so quaint, it organized users around ‘buddy lists.’ In a time before smartphones, AIM was powerful and intoxicating, a way for a generation that once had called people on the phone to communicate in quick bursts from their computers.

Adam Lashinsky
The computer is a moron.

Peter Drucker
Computers are really patient. They can sit there all day. It’s a totally different situation dealing with humans. They can be tired or overly excited.

All of a sudden, if you think about the entire ecosystem of connected devices that can pull down information, access content and allow me to share and work and communicate, the vast majority now are not Windows computers. They are iPhones. They are iPads. They are Android devices.

Aaron Levie
I started working at a point in history when digital computers were becoming mature, and before that, there were no such machines.

Marvin Minsky
I was writing my Ph.D. in the late 1980s and was keeping an eye on what was happening in the world. It became obvious to me that Russia couldn’t live without computers. I think I worked this out a year before anyone else. I started looking for people who could help import them.

Bidzina Ivanishvili
Computers are extremely helpful and amazing for a multitude of scientific areas, but for me, when it comes to creation, they are insufficient and slow. Therefore, all of my efforts are to stay away from that beast.

Computers used to petrify me before I figured it was just a matter of getting used to them.

Raveena Tandon
While in the early days of networks, growth was limited by slowness and cost at numerous points – expensive telephone connections, computers that crashed, browsers that didn’t work – the rise of the smartphone has essentially changed all that.

Om Malik
The internet is not for sissies.

Paul Vixie
Many of our own people here in this country do not ask about computers, telephones and television sets. They ask – when will we get a road to our village.

Thabo Mbeki
I don’t really like encouraging people to go on the Internet too much, we’re constantly distracted with the Internet and computers.

I programmed computers every day. And one of my favourite apps we built was this thing called Awesome Updater, that all it did is send you a tweet randomly that was like, ‘Yo, you’re awesome.’

Harper Reed
For about half an hour in mid-1992, I knew as much as any layperson about the pleasures of remote access of other people’s computers.

Elizabeth McCracken
Because you have things like ‘American Idol’ and you’ve got radio stations that play music made entirely by computers, it’s easy to forget there are bands with actual people playing actual instruments that rock.

Dave Grohl
Scientists have discovered that, as we age, our brains act like computers with fuller and fuller hard drives. So when we’re trying to recall a fact or a word or a name, it takes us longer, because – to put it scientifically – our brains hold a lot of ‘stuff.’

Faith Salie
In a way, digital cameras were like very early personal computers such as the Commodore 64 – clunky and able to do only a few things.

Om Malik
People think computers will keep them from making mistakes. They’re wrong. With computers you make mistakes faster.

Adam Osborne
If you write a blog post, you’ve got something to say; you’re not just creating words and synonyms. We’d like the computers to actually pick up on that semantic meaning.

Ray Kurzweil
I just like music that sounds like music. Not like machines and computers and things that you design to make things sound slick and perfect.

Zooey Deschanel

Well, my wife always says to me, and I think it’s true, it’s very difficult for us to understand the Elizabethan understanding and enjoyment and perception of form as it is to say… it would be for them to understand computers or going to the moon or something.

Mark Rylance
For short term relaxation, I take a hot tub. It’s my best way to unblock writers’ block, too. For a bit longer relaxation, I enjoy camping. Just being in the wilderness, with no phones or computers or anything I have to do really refreshes my spirit.

Ellen Hopkins
In Hollywood, they think drawn animation doesn’t work anymore, computers are the way. They forget that the reason computers are the way is that Pixar makes good movies. So everybody tries to copy Pixar. They’re relying too much on the technology and not enough on the artists.

Tim Burton
I started on computers with ‘Billy Bathgate,’ a little orange screen with black letters. I thought it was really cool, but it actually slowed me up for a while because it’s so easy to revise, I tended to stay on the same page. I’ve learned to discipline myself.

E. L. Doctorow
I would rather have racing without computers. The human side is forgotten, and instead of talking over what’s happening and just trusting the feel of the driver, the data becomes almost more important.

Jacques Villeneuve
We can be incredibly disconnected in this day and age with computers and cell phones.

Jimmy Carter
Yes, my children are fascinated by design of technology and computers. And I am very happy with that. Today design is a wide world; it doesn’t have to be interiors or architecture. It could be anything.

Sussanne Khan
We want the digital world to bend to your physical life, your real emotional life as a person, and we don’t want you to bend to computers.

Naveen Jain
Growing up, I spent my time doing useless stuff looking at computers.

Tobias Lutke
My love of computers, besides being practical, is very direct and visceral. I love the way things look on the screen.

Penn Jillette
A calculator is a tool for humans to do math more quickly and accurately than they could ever do by hand; similarly, AI computers are tools for us to perform tasks too difficult or expensive for us to do on our own, such as analyzing large data sets or keeping up to date on medical research.

Oren Etzioni
Cable boxes are, almost without exception, awful. They’re under-powered computers running very badly designed software. Their channel guides are slow, poorly laid out, and usually riddled with ads.

Alex Pareene
As far as solving India’s problems with technology is concerned, I think there are some wrong assumptions in making computing work at the grassroots. We need to go beyond the notion of technology being all about computers.

Pranav Mistry
I just want to shed light, illuminate and turn the spotlight over to all of the black people who have been being futuristic and innovative since instruments were plugged into a wall. With computers, machines, and music, black people have been contributing to that a great deal for a long time.

Movies began as a communal experience. Even though we now watch them as DVD’s, sometimes alone on our computers, mostly in the history of cinema it has been a communal experience.

Alison Owen
For the longest time, computers have been associated with work. Mainframes were for the Army, government agencies, and then large companies. Workstations were for engineers and software programmers. PCs were initially for other white-collar jobs.

Om Malik
Personally, I rather look forward to a computer program winning the world chess championship. Humanity needs a lesson in humility.

Richard Dawkins
Kids are finding out about the potential for discovery online from other sources; many of them have computers at home, for instance, or their friends have them.

Daniel Greenberg
Computers are magnificent tools for the realization of our dreams, but no machine can replace the human spark of spirit, compassion, love, and understanding.

Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
Even in the developing parts of the world, kids take to computers like fish to water.

Nicholas Negroponte
Computers have cut-and-paste functions. So does right-wing historical memory.

Rick Perlstein
I wouldn’t call myself a geek, but I do sometimes teach Mommy and Daddy stuff about computers. And I do watch TV, but only informative programmes like the news and documentaries.

Adora Svitak
I have always believed that technology should do the hard work – discovery, organization, communication – so users can do what makes them happiest: living and loving, not messing with annoying computers! That means making our products work together seamlessly.

Larry Page
China has legally purchased high performance computers, advanced machine tools, and semiconductor-manufacturing equipment from several American companies.

Charles Bass
I think smartphones are one of humanity’s most remarkable creations: computers are amazing enough, but a supercomputer you can carry in your pocket and communicate instantly with anyone, anywhere… it’s no wonder they’re troublingly addictive.

John Lanchester
I am of the very last generation who didn’t have computers at school. As we grow old we’ll become something of an aberration.

Steve Coogan
I truly believe that you have to bring more content to the table to survive in radio than saying, ‘There was AC/DC, and here’s Journey,’ because computers can do that.

Eddie Trunk
One of the big first computers was called SAGE, which was a missile defense, the first missile-defense computer, which was, like, one of the first computers in the history of the world which got sold to the Department of Defense for, I don’t know, tens and tens of millions of dollars at the time.

Marc Andreessen
Because I believe that humans are computers, I conjectured that computers, like people, can have left- and right-handed versions.

The new information technology… Internet and e-mail… have practically eliminated the physical costs of communications.

Peter Drucker
I am not great at computers. If I were to try shopping through Google, I’d end up with 33 vests.

Mary Berry
I think a lot of people will be liberated from a lot of oppressive manufacturing jobs, or a lot of service jobs, because they’ll be done by computers. There’ll be the world’s best education available online and free.

Tyler Cowen
Techno-humanism aims to amplify the power of humans, creating cyborgs and connecting humans to computers, but it still sees human interests and desires as the highest authority in the universe.

Yuval Noah Harari
I’m not on Twitter or Facebook and don’t even use email. I don’t trust computers: one day they’ll all break down, and everyone will be knackered.

Eric Bristow
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the DMV and look around, you’re like, ‘Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.’

Marc Andreessen
By the end of 1978, we had 11 partners and six franchisees, we were operating in 22 cities, and we had about 6,000 clients. We had left Electronic Accounting Systems and were doing our own processing on our own computers.

Tom Golisano
Even when I work with computers, with high technology, I always try to put in the touch of the hand.

Issey Miyake
Man, I don’t want to have nothing to do with computers. I don’t want the government in my business.

Erykah Badu
One of the things that is not so good is that a decision was made long ago about the size of an IP address – 32 bits. At the time it was a number much larger than anyone could imagine ever having that many computers but it turned out to be to small.

Jon Postel
I started on an Apple II, which I had bought at the very end of 1978 for half of my annual income. I made $4,500 a year, and I spent half of it on the computer.

Bill Budge
No one has any faith in the tape anymore – everyone just relies on computers and considers the hardrive to be the safest option, and I don’t. I think an analog tape is something you can hold.

Dave Grohl
Most computers today have built in backup software.

Barton Gellman
Shareware tends to combine the worst of commercial software with the worst of free software.

Linus Torvalds
As smartphones have allowed us to have our computers, emails, social media feeds, and a full surveillance system in our pockets at all times, stories of the law enforcement’s unease with that have been popping up in the press. And of course, the ones that become viral videos aren’t exactly flattering for law enforcement.

Sarah Lacy
If you like overheads, you’ll love PowerPoint.

Edward Tufte
Yes, I was a big math and computer geek, that’s true. I was driven by the scholastic side of things. For me, it was all about what I could do with math and computers.

Brian Acton
Juries are not computers. They are composed of human beings who evaluate evidence differently.

Alan Dershowitz
I don’t like computers. I still like to do my drawings by hand.

Dieter Rams
We demand privacy, yet we glorify those that break into computers.

Bill McCollum
I do a lot of work on computers, but I am so practiced in drawing that I can draw it full size, and you can take the measurements off my drawings. It’s like drafting, but it’s a work of art – a really beautiful drawing.

Charles Pollock
I start every book with something that outrages me. I’m outraged by the FBI, the CIA, and computers that seem to have catalogued our lives. Power too often is accompanied by irresponsibility.

Robert Ludlum
I use computers and the Internet every day of my life, and yet I have absolutely no idea how they work. I’m like a labrador watching ‘The Matrix.’

John Niven
The manufacture and running of all the world’s computers, the toxicity of the hardware mountains that we currently dump on other countries; all this can be totted up on the environmental account of web-users and its authors.

Tristram Stuart
Even though chess isn’t the toughest thing that computers will tackle for centuries, it stood as a handy symbol for human intelligence. No matter what human-like feat computers perform in the future, the Deep Blue match demands an indelible dot on all timelines of AI progress.

Steven Levy
And my real enemy is not to hold the specimen sterile, but it’s the lighting. The light is our real enemy. So we have to work with very very poor lighting. But we can increase the light with computers.

Lennart Nilsson
Over the eons I’ve been a fan of, and sucker for, each latest automated system to ‘simplify’ and ‘bring order to’ my life. Very early on this led me to the beautiful-and-doomed Lotus Agenda for my DOS computers, and Actioneer for the early Palm.

James Fallows
When a monk takes a vow of silence, is he still allowed to post messages on the Internet? Chances are God won’t find out. Being ancient, God probably can’t work computers. He holds the mouse gingerly, like it’s made of fine china.

Charlie Brooker
One of the problems with computers, particularly for the older people, is they were befuddled by them, and the computers have gotten better. They have gotten easier to use. They have gotten less expensive. The software interfaces have made things a lot more accessible.

Steve Case
As a rule, software systems do not work well until they have been used, and have failed repeatedly, in real applications.

Dave Parnas
My advice is not always so logical and consistent. But then, love is not logical and consistent. So why should my advice be? If you want that kind of thinking, go to a computer. Computers are always logical and consistent, and you see how often they get proposed to.

Zsa Zsa Gabor
Personal computers were created by some teenagers in garages because the, the wisdom of the computer industry was that people didn’t want these little toys on their desk.

Howard Rheingold
I know when I grew up, it was, if it was daylight outside, get outside. Well, now, with the technological age of computers and everything, everyone’s inside virtually going everywhere they want to go, virtually having relationships, virtually traveling across the neighborhood, virtually going to that island.

Matthew McConaughey
Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers – organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative – if we don’t solve these security problems, then people will hold back.

Bill Gates
I think computers are the ultimate writing tool. I’m a very slow writer, so I appreciate it every day.

Sherry Turkle
Computers can see, and understand what people say via speech recognition.

Jeff Dean
The most used program in computers and education is PowerPoint. What are you learning about the nature of the medium by knowing how do to a great PowerPoint presentation? Nothing. It certainly doesn’t teach you how to think critically about living in a culture of simulation.

Sherry Turkle
My background was in graphic design, but when I was doing it, it was all hand-drawn stuff, not computers.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan
We’re just into toys, whether it’s motorcycles or race cars or computers. I’ve got the Palm Pilot right here with me, I’ve got the world’s smallest phone. Maybe it’s just because I’m still a big little kid and I just love toys, you know?

Catherine Bell
The trick with computers I think, is to approach old and new things with the same reverence as you would like your favourite chair and not be seduced by the constant innovation otherwise you never do anything.

Colin Greenwood
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
Obviously, our children, who have been playing with their computers since the age of five or six, don’t have quite the same brain as those who were brought up on wooden or metal toys, whose brains are certainly atrophied by comparison.

Claude Vorilhon
Stationery gets me excited because it has an individual character, unlike computers, which may be convenient but are generic and bland.

Damon Galgut
Not only have computers changed the way we think, they’ve also discovered what makes humans think – or think we’re thinking. At least enough to predict and even influence it.

Douglas Rushkoff
There’s all these ways to instantly communicate – cars, computers, telephone and transportation – and even with all that, it’s so hard to find people and have an honest communication with them.

Jason Schwartzman
Would you go into a CD store and steal a CD? It’s the same thing, people going into the computers and loggin’ on and stealing our music.

Britney Spears
I like computers as a tool. I like them as an instrument. I think they’re just pretty.

Dallas Roberts
Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don’t need to be done.

Andy Rooney
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better.

Marc Andreessen
Computers are wasteful of paper and time. Once, we’d get documents with a few errors. Now, people make hundreds of copies until each sheet is flawless and memos are duplicated endlessly. Managers get swamped with emails.

Felix Dennis
I was around computers from birth; we had one of the first Macs, which came out shortly before I was born, and my dad ran a company that wrote computer operating systems. I don’t think I have any particular technical skills; I just got a really large head start.

Aaron Swartz
When I launched the development of the GNU system, I explicitly said the purpose of developing this system is so we can use our computers and have freedom, thus if you use some other free system instead but you have freedom, then it’s a success. It’s not popularity for our code but it’s success for our goal.

Richard Stallman
Once computers can program, they basically take over technological progress because already, today, the majority of technological progress is run by software, by programming.

Jaan Tallinn
Video games and computers have become babysitters for kids.

Taylor Kitsch
For computer communications, computers talk in little bursts. They’re not continuous like speech.

Bob Kahn
When computers came online and people found out people weren’t mixing there was uproar, and outed. But now that hasn’t happened. People don’t seem to care.

Erick Morillo
The new generation of musicians is writing music on computers, and this is very sad because the quality of songwriting has crashed and dived. There are some songs out that are made by only one guy who works a computer and doesn’t play any instruments.

Joe Walsh
Technology ventures can succeed with very little investment, unlike many other industries. A lot of the big Internet players like Google or Yahoo were started by a couple of guys with computers. Microsoft was started in Bill Gates’ garage.

Jonathan Raymond
The Internet: transforming society and shaping the future through chat.

Dave Barry
I think it’s pretty pointless, my children learning to use a keyboard – we will just talk to our computers. Why would we not?

Julian Treasure
I’m trying to get through life without really knowing about computers, but I don’t know if I am going to make it.

Peter Graves
When Steve Jobs toured Xerox PARC and saw computers running the first operating system that used Windows and a mouse, he assumed he was looking at a new way to work a personal computer. He brought the concept back to Cupertino and created the Mac, then Bill Gates followed suit, and the rest is history.

Douglas Rushkoff
In the developed world, we are surrounded by electronics – from the computers on our desks to the smart phones in our pockets to the thermostats in our homes to our data in the virtual cloud.

Joe Kaeser
I build computers.

Sean Murray
I like stuff designed by dead people. The old designers. They always got it right because they didn’t have to grow up with computers. All of the people that made the spoon and the dishes and the vacuum cleaner didn’t have microprocessors and stuff. You could do a good design back then.

John Maeda
By the time I was a senior in high school, I knew I wanted to move to Silicon Valley and learn more about computers and the Internet. I just fell in love with technology and the potential of everything the Internet had to offer.

Brit Morin
Everyone talks about how much data’s in the world. Except, actually, 80% of it is pretty blind to computers. I mean, it can store it. But if it’s a movie, a poem, a song, it doesn’t know what it’s actually saying or doing.

Ginni Rometty
‘Bloomberg’s, you know, for people who don’t use the service, provides through the Internet – through specialized computers – information about the financial world. It’s a very large data base. I think they have on the order of a billion dollars or more a year in revenue.

Craig Venter
I’m a very methodical writer. Before computers, I used reams of paper and stacks of index cards.

Frank Peretti
They were saying computers deal with numbers. This was absolutely nonsense. Computers deal with arbitrary information of any kind.

Ted Nelson
Every company that made computers when we started the Mac, they’re all gone.

Phil Schiller
I’m not really a knob-twiddler. I always work with an engineer; I’m not super hands-on when it comes to mixing boards and computers. I’m much more about what I’m hearing and what it needs to be like. I deal with songs and ideas and instruments.

Danger Mouse
I guarantee you, yoga will compete with computers, music, sports, automobiles, the drug industry. Yoga will take over the world!

Bikram Choudhury
Computer science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.

Edsger Dijkstra
Smartphones can relay patients’ data to hospital computers in a continuous stream. Doctors can alter treatment regimens remotely, instead of making patients come in for a visit.

Charles C. Mann
I detest computers. If you had a device like that 30 years ago that froze up constantly, misbehaved constantly, lost your information and screwed up when you needed it the most, it would have been laughable.

Tom Scholz
Closed environments dominated the computing world of the 1970s and early ’80s. An operating system written for a Hewlett-Packard computer ran only on H.P. computers; I.B.M. controlled its software from chips up to the user interfaces.

Ellen Ullman
Silicon Valley is a great place for Bitcoin, since everyone understands computers, and there are lots of libertarians running around.

Roger Ver
My mother worked for Confederation of Indian Industry, and Aptech Computers.

Tahir Raj Bhasin
Your computer needn’t be the first thing your see in the morning and the last thing you see at night.

Simon Mainwaring
I always have traveled with a camera throughout my life, but I always had my old 35mm film camera. When I was training to go into space, the only equipment there was a digital camera. I went through a fast-track class on Earth. It actually was fun, though I’m basically a dinosaur with computers.

Guy Laliberte
Apple excels at taking existing concepts – computers, MP3 players, conceit – and carefully streamlining them into glistening ergonomic chunks of concentrated aspiration.

Charlie Brooker
If computers remain far worse than us at image recognition, a certain over-confident combination of man and machine can elsewhere take inaccuracy to a whole new level.

Tom Chatfield
A smartphone is a computer – it’s not built using a computer – the job it does is the job of being a computer. So, everything we say about computers, that the software you run should be free – you should insist on that – applies to smart phones just the same. And likewise to those tablets.

Richard Stallman
I know so many people who actually just watch television on their computers now and don’t even really watch their TV anymore.

Busy Philipps
Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs founded Apple Inc, which set the computing world on its ear with the Macintosh in 1984.

Kevin Mitnick
My work was fairly theoretical. It was in recursive function theory. And in particular, hierarchies of functions in terms of computational complexity. I got involved in real computers and programming mainly by being – well, I was interested even as I came to graduate school.

Dennis Ritchie
At our computer club, we talked about it being a revolution. Computers were going to belong to everyone, and give us power, and free us from the people who owned computers and all that stuff.

Steve Wozniak
When I got out of coaching, I had taught a class at the University of California, an extension class on football for fans. I was looking for tools. I was showing them films. I was going to write a textbook. Trip Hawkins came to me about making it a game for computers.

John Madden
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
Before computers, telephone lines and television connect us, we all share the same air, the same oceans, the same mountains and rivers. We are all equally responsible for protecting them.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Technology improves our lives in so many ways – from our toasters, ovens, and refrigerators at home to our computers, fax machines, and BlackBerrys at work. Technology makes once-burdensome tasks easy and fun.

Jared Polis
One of the most feared expressions in modern times is ‘The computer is down.’

Norman Ralph Augustine
Machine learning is the science of getting computers to learn without being explicitly programmed.

Sebastian Thrun
I’m interested in all kinds of pictures, however they are made, with cameras, with paint brushes, with computers, with anything.

David Hockney
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
Those who believe that health is a commodity, on par with cars or computers, fail to grasp the basic economic lesson that health is very vulnerable to exposure to the markets, not least due to the profound asymmetries in power between the providers and consumers.

Vikram Patel
In the early 1990s, Americans used their home phone lines to connect their desktop computers to the Internet via ISPs like AOL, Earthlink, or Netzero. Back then, the ISPs didn’t have cost-effective technology to select particular sites for blocking or privileging.

Marvin Ammori
Stock exchanges say that more than half of all trades are now executed by just a handful of high-frequency traders, who use rapid-fire computers to essentially force slower investors to give up profits, then disappear before anyone knows what happened.

Charles Duhigg
Gee, I am a complete Luddite when it comes to computers, I can barely log on!

Jonathan Shapiro
I am such a gearhead. In my recording studio, I personally engineer and edit everything on computers.

Tommy Lee
I don’t think ‘Sugar Man’ is a music doc any more than ‘The Social Network’ is about computers. It just happens to have the best soundtrack ever.

Malik Bendjelloul
Computing is not about computers any more. It is about living.

Nicholas Negroponte
People are seduced by signals from the world, but that is manipulation, not reality. Computers have learned more about us than we’ve learned about them.

Douglas Rushkoff
I had been doing MP3 players and handheld computers since 1990-1991, and so they sought me out because of my experience. And about 18 generations of iPod and three generations of iPhone later, I decided to leave Apple.

Tony Fadell
If you’re talking about a world in which everybody is connected by computers 24 hours a day, that exists right now.

John Cabrera
The first thing I think, I was building computers, I started to build a computer when I was 17 or 18 at home, an IBM compatible computer, and then I started to sell computers, and when I sold a computer to a company called Ligo I think, and they were selling systems which became blockbuster.

Peter Jones
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Emo Philips
Computers can bully us. A slow and unreliable system will bring even the toughest soul to their knees as they find themselves completely defenseless against the erratic whims of their rogue machine.

Lou Ferrigno
Yet in this global economy, no jobs are safe. High-speed Internet connections and low-cost, skilled labor overseas are an explosive combination.

Bob Taft
Than Shwe ordered the confiscation of all cell phones and laptops and computers so no reportage could come out of Burma. It seemed clear that a demon, something diabolical, rather than something compassionate and human was in charge of Burma.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Doing a movie about computers between 1978 and 1982? You can’t get much less sexy, less active than that.

Joshua Michael Stern
So technologies, whether it is a telephone or an iPhone, computers in general or automobiles, television even, all individualize us. We all sit in front of our iPhones and communicating but are we really communicating?

Henry Mintzberg
Computers are dangerous.

Harry Enfield
It was a huge challenge to learn digital painting well enough so that computers don’t pop into mind when one sees one.

Berkeley Breathed
This is a man who was 23 years old when he theorized the idea of creating a programmable machine, and in that way, Turing foresaw computers and artificial intelligence. These were revolutionary ideas at that time.

Morten Tyldum
My generation is so tied up in television, computers, and video games. When we were born, MTV was already there. It was normal.

Shooter Jennings
Something else has happened with computers.

Seth Lloyd
How did the economy produce all these amazing things that we have around us – computers and cell phones and so on? There were a bunch of ideas, and the good ones grew and prospered. And the bad ones were pretty ruthlessly weeded out.

Tim Harford
We’re seeing an enormous amount of global upward mobility that’s quite rapid and quite sudden, and undiscovered individuals have a chance – using the Internet, using computers – to prove themselves very quickly. So I think the mobility story will be a quite complicated one.

Tyler Cowen
In chess, computers show that what we call ‘strategy’ is reducible to tactics, ultimately. It only looks creative to us. They are still just glorified cash registers. This should make us feel uncomfortable, whether or not we think computers will ever be good composers of music or artistic painters.

Tyler Cowen
I’m actually pretty good with computers. I use computers when I’m working on making and producing music, so I do know a thing or two!

Nick Jonas
Before computers, you’d start designing using shapes of cubes. Now I can start with something like a handkerchief, an object that doesn’t have strong inside and outside boundaries or much closed volume.

Greg Lynn
It’s interesting to see what people are saying about me. I like keep up with the latest rumors! A while back there was a rumor that I was going to do a film with Demi Moore about the takeover of Commodore computers!

Warwick Davis
Music is composed on computers and other electronic equipment; producers don’t want to spend money on orchestra.

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

Stephen Hawking
It’s amazing what these computers we carry around in our pockets can do. And if anyone wants to, they can know what we’re doing.

Ashley Zukerman
I don’t care how big and fast computers are, they’re not as big and fast as the world.

Herbert A. Simon
I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we’ve worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded.

Mark Zuckerberg
Well, the big products in electronics in the ’50s were radio and television. The first big computers were just beginning to come in and represented the most logical market for us to work in.

Jack Kilby
The form of computers has never been important, with speed and performance being the only things that mattered.

Jonathan Ive
In almost every technology area that we’re ahead in, we’re ahead in because the United States leads the world in computers.

W. Daniel Hillis
Computers make me totally blank out.

Dalai Lama
When I’m not writing or tweaking my computer, I do embroidery. When I’m not plunging into the past, tweaking, or embroidering, I’m reading books about history, computers, or embroidery.

Lynn Abbey
In high school, I used to teach guitar and fix computers by the hour. I was looking for some way to make some cash, so I actually learned how to play guitar in order to try to teach it.

Jon Oringer
I am interested in computers and technology, and art, photography, and design.

William Landay
Reading computer manuals without the hardware is as frustrating as reading sex manuals without the software.

Arthur C. Clarke
Perhaps one day we will have machines that can cope with approximate task descriptions, but in the meantime, we have to be very prissy about how we tell computers to do things.

Richard P. Feynman
The question of whether a computer can think is no more interesting than the question of whether a submarine can swim.

Edsger Dijkstra
Bill Gates is the pope of the personal computer industry. He decides who’s going to build.

Larry Ellison
From cell phones to computers, quality is improving and costs are shrinking as companies fight to offer the public the best product at the best price. But this philosophy is sadly missing from our health-care insurance system.

John Shadegg
Nowadays shots are created in post-production, on computers. It’s not really photography.

Mary Ellen Mark
I took this ‘how to build computers’ course basically because I’m sick and tired of getting ripped off by cheesy computer companies. Software baffles me. I like hardware. I used to change my own oil, and now I want to build my own computer so I can have what I want.

Pat Cadigan
Computers allow us to squeeze the most out of everything, whether it’s Google looking up things, so I guess that tends to make us a little lazy about reading books and doing things the hard way to understand how those things work.

Buzz Aldrin
Nanotechnology will let us build computers that are incredibly powerful. We’ll have more power in the volume of a sugar cube than exists in the entire world today.

Ralph Merkle
When I was a graduate student in computer science in the early 2000s, computers were barely able to detect sharp edges in photographs, let alone recognize something as loosely defined as a human face.

Fei-Fei Li
Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.

Isaac Asimov
Brains are tricky and adaptable organs. For all the ‘neuroplasticity’ allowing our brains to reconfigure themselves to the biases of our computers, we are just as neuroplastic in our ability to eventually recover and adapt.

Douglas Rushkoff
I don’t know anything about computers.

Adam Carolla
I got my first computer at the age of 6. To me, it was magic. By the time I was 12, I wanted to know the secrets behind the wizardry, and that started my journey toward computer programming. This was the early 1990s, when computers weren’t built for the mass market.

Tobias Lutke
Early AI was mainly based on logic. You’re trying to make computers that reason like people. The second route is from biology: You’re trying to make computers that can perceive and act and adapt like animals.

Geoffrey Hinton
Some of our best and unexpected discoveries have been born out of crises – from the Second World War, for example, came Alan Turing’s decoding machine, widely considered as the precursor to modern day computers and artificial intelligence.

Alok Sharma
It always helps to be a good programmer. It is important to like computers and to be able to think of things people would want to do with their computers.

Bill Budge
I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.

Stephen Hawking
I’m working on artificial intelligence. Actually, natural language understanding, which is to get computers to understand the meaning of documents.

Ray Kurzweil
Companies are accustomed to dismissing employees for misuse of computers at work.

Bill Dedman
People are craving this great progress in electronics, going after computers, the Internet, etc. It’s a giant progress technologically. But they must have a balance of soul, a balance for human beauty. That means art has an important role.

Mstislav Rostropovich
You couldn’t have fed the ’50s into a computer and come out with the ’60s.

Paul Kantner
We used our brains to create and program them, and now we have to continue to use our brains to prevent computers from taking over our lives.

Lorne Greene
It was not until the appearance of cyberpunk in the 1980s that SF began to grapple in a broadly meaningful way with the reality of computers as something other than giant mainframes tended by crewcut IBM nerds.

Paul Di Filippo
It seems like everything that we see perceived in the brain before we actually use our own eyes, that everything we see is coming through computers or machines and then is being input in our brain cells. So that really worries me.

Hayao Miyazaki
I’m looking to evolve the concept of the new renaissance artist, taking the world by storm through the art of public display and demonstration, with technical savvy, using cell phones and computers.

Perry Farrell
Pixar is not about computers, it’s about people.

John Lasseter
I’m a computer guy, and one of the things I did with the good fortune that ‘Presumed Innocent’ brought me was to buy one of the very first laptop computers. It weighed about eight and a half pounds, by the way.

Scott Turow
It appears that the media filters we carry in our heads are like computers: they’ve been forced to get faster in order to keep up with the demands our high-speed society puts on them.

Roy H. Williams
The computers people have are no longer on their desks but in their hands, and that is probably the transformative feature of the technology. These computers are with you, in the world.

Caterina Fake
When computers came along, I felt for the first time that I had the proper tools for the kind of theoretical work I wanted to do. So I moved over to that, and that got me into psychology.

Herbert A. Simon
I don’t type on the computer or edit. Law students who went to law school really just a couple years after I did were brought up all on the computers and that’s how they do it, but I was still part of the older school.

John Roberts
I favor pocket-sized hard drives that travel between home and office, syncing with computers on both ends.

Barton Gellman
I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.

Bill Gates
Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service. The iMac is not just the color or translucence or the shape of the shell. The essence of the iMac is to be the finest possible consumer computer in which each element plays together.

Steve Jobs
I’m into computers and have been for a while.

Thomas Middleditch
Americans fear losing control if they’re forced to ride in autonomous vehicles. These same Americans fly in airplanes every day that largely are flown by computers, and impressively efficient ones at that.

Adam Lashinsky
Why is it that I notice so many brilliant scientists using Macs for their personal computers; why does the Lawrence Livermore & Berkeley Labs buy millions of dollars worth of Macs?

Lene Hau
Google did a great job hacking the Web to create search – and then monetizing search with advertising. And Apple did a great job humanizing hardware and software so that formerly daunting computers and applications could become consumer-friendly devices – even a lifestyle brand.

Douglas Rushkoff
Right at the start, when I was about 13 or 14, I only had an Amiga 500 Plus running a bit of tracker software called OctaMED. My brother was big into his computers, and when he moved up to a proper PC, I took charge of the Amiga.

Calvin Harris
I first got interested in the brain through computers.

Paul Allen
People’s computers are not getting more secure. They’re getting more infected with viruses. They’re getting more under the control of malware.

Avi Rubin
I got up with my wife, I sat down at the computer when she went to work, and I didn’t stop until she got home.

Stephen R. George
You have to be very skilled in this industry. I grew in this industry; we created the very beginnings of this industry. We made the first PCs (personal computers) in the world.

Shiv Nadar
I’ve always been slightly embittered about computers because it was the only subject I failed at school.

Matt Frewer
Today, computers are almost second nature to most of us.

James Dyson
One thing that humans still do better than computers is recognize images.

Peter Diamandis
My goal wasn’t to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers. I only started the company when I realized I could be an engineer forever.

Steve Wozniak
Use a personal firewall. Configure it to prevent other computers, networks and sites from connecting to you, and specify which programs are allowed to connect to the net automatically.

Kevin Mitnick
After a semester or so, my infatuation with computers burnt out as quickly as it had begun.

Eric Allin Cornell
I’m a ’70s mom, and my daughter is a ’90s mom. I know a lot of women my age who are real computer freaks.

Florence Henderson
I hope that memes jump out of our computers in the future.

Colleen Ballinger
Humans are still much better than computers at recognizing speech.

Geoffrey Hinton
I’m really anti-option, so computers have been my nightmare with recording. I don’t want endless tracks; I want less tracks. I want decisions to be made.

Ian MacKaye
A smartphone links patients’ bodies and doctors’ computers, which in turn are connected to the Internet, which in turn is connected to any smartphone anywhere. The new devices could put the management of an individual’s internal organs in the hands of every hacker, online scammer, and digital vandal on Earth.

Charles C. Mann
When I heard the news that Steve Jobs had died, my mind flashed back to 1985, when I began my love affair with computers. I was stationed in Moscow for The Associated Press, and I ordered an Apple IIc – by Telex – from a department store in Helsinki, Finland. They express-shipped it to me, a month later, by train.

Andrew Rosenthal
In computers, we do all kinds of manual manipulations. We grab and drag icons. We click on and open windows. We pull down a screen. We stretch a screen. We scroll up and down.

Louis B. Rosenberg
Computers have virtually replaced tape recorders.

Tony Visconti
The Internet is a powerful way to make lots of money… But we are not going to buy Yahoo!

Sumner Redstone
In short, software is eating the world.

Marc Andreessen
The early cyberpunk idea was that networked computers would let us do our work at home, as freelancers, and then transact directly with peers over networks. Digital technology would create tremendous slack, allow us to apply its asynchronous, decentralized qualities to our own work and lives.

Douglas Rushkoff
I know how to use computers. I was one of those guys on Myspace who had one of those fake hit counters.

Don’t try to be like Jackie. There is only one Jackie. Study computers instead.

Jackie Chan
But I’m so slow on it because I find it terribly hard writing blind on computers. The computer speaks to me, but it’s just so slow, I’m so terribly slow using it.

Jack Vance
I just think there’s a general interest in the world of computers.

Irwin Winkler
Diaspora starts about a thousand years from now. Most of human civilisation has moved inside computers; essentially, a major branch of our descendants consists of conscious software.

Greg Egan
Lighter computers and lighter sensors would let you have more function in a given weight, which is very important if you are launching things into space, and you have to pay by the pound to put things there.

Ralph Merkle
Men and machines are good at different things. People form plans and make decisions in complicated situations. We are less good at making sense of enormous amounts of data. Computers are exactly the opposite: they excel at efficient data processing but struggle to make basic judgments that would be simple for any human.

Peter Thiel
I have sometimes thought the power of computers had exceeded our ability to use them, but Mr. Jobs and his team kept giving us devices that made indispensable things easier in ways you never thought of.

Andrew Rosenthal
The reason why Apple computers have worked so well over time is that, unlike Microsoft, they don’t bend over backward to be compatible with every piece of hardware or software in the digital universe. To code or create for Apple, you follow Apple’s rules. If you’re even allowed to.

Douglas Rushkoff
Sci-fi films are the epic films of the day because we can no longer put 10,000 extras in the scene – but we can draw thousands of aliens with computers.

William Shatner
We believe the singularity is inevitable, and all businesses will be redefined as computers overtake humans in intelligence.

Masayoshi Son
If somebody had told me when I was in graduate school, ‘Brian, in 35 years you’ll get a chance to fly the first commercial spacecraft with no computers,’ I’d have said, ‘I don’t think so. People are not going to be that stupid.’

Brian Binnie
My dad, Chris, is from St Kitts. He worked in computers. I remember the first laptop when he brought it home. People from primary school came to check it out – it was huge.

Corinne Bailey Rae
Introduced in the 1960s, multitasking is an engineering strategy for making computers more efficient. Human beings are the slowest elements in a system.

Ellen Ullman
Never trust a computer you can’t throw out a window.

Steve Wozniak
Starting early and getting girls on computers, tinkering and playing with technology, games and new tools, is extremely important for bridging the gender divide that exists now in computer science and in technology.

Beth Simone Noveck
You can be very connected, computers are great, they can get you a ticket to Venezuela in five minutes; brilliant. But if you know your music and your history, you can make that work as a tool. If you don’t, you’re working as a slave to it.

So the thing I realized rather gradually – I must say starting about 20 years ago now that we know about computers and things – there’s a possibility of a more general basis for rules to describe nature.

Stephen Wolfram
I just bought a Mac to help me design the next Cray.

Seymour Cray
Some computers have security software that make it impossible to hack into, and it’s the same with brains – some malfunction, and some, you can’t hack into them at all.

Keith Barry
As a science fiction fan, I had always assumed that when computers supplemented our intelligence, it would be because we outsourced some of our memory to them. We would ask questions, and our machines would give oracular – or supremely practical – replies.

Gary Wolf
With faster Internet and better computers, you’d better believe we’re creating and consuming more digital data.

Peter Diamandis
Google is about information and computers and making things really fast. Facebook is about the sharing and connections. These missions give these companies direction and motivation.

Paul Buchheit
Computers let people avoid people, going out to explore. It’s so different to just open a website instead of looking at a Picasso in a museum in Paris.

Raf Simons
Computers don’t usually have a sense of if you have a picture of something what is in that image. And if we can do a good job of understanding what is in an image, that can bring along a lot of new things you can do in applications.

Jeff Dean
Electromagnetic theory and experiment gave us the telephone, radio, TV, computers, and made the internal combustion engine practical – thus, the car and airplane, leading inevitably to the rocket and outer-space exploration.

Gregory Benford
When I write software, I know that it will fail, either due to my own mistake, or due to some other cause.

Wietse Venema
Computers seem a little too adaptively flexible, like the strange natives, odd societies, and head cases we study in the social sciences. There’s more opposable thumb in the digital world than I care for; it’s awfully close to human.

P. J. O’Rourke
I think I compose as a listener: improvising and listening back excites me because I get to ideas that never would have occurred. Then I bring in the computers and samplers… and I begin to loop and process and change them.

Thomas Newman
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
I love computers. I think it’s a miracle that you can type ‘coffee stain’ into a search engine and get a page of answers, but I don’t like the viciousness of the Internet. It gives public voice to quite mad people.

Sheila Hancock
Computers may save time but they sure waste a lot of paper. About 98 percent of everything printed out by a computer is garbage that no one ever reads.

Andy Rooney
I used to have the very standard worldview. I can easily identify with people who see computers getting faster and smarter, and technology getting more and more beneficial, without seeing the other side.

Jaan Tallinn
They went back there, looked at all the computers, asked me to come in and tell them what all the computers were for specifically so they knew how to dismantle the network I had been running.

Sherman Austin
Our computers have become windows through which we can gaze upon a world that is virtually without horizons or boundaries.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
Computers can be taught that certain tune or certain chords changes will sound pleasant together, but I don’t think it’s going to reach a point where a machine will generate ideas and styles.

If being the biggest company was a guarantee of success, we’d all be using IBM computers and driving GM cars.

James Surowiecki
Look at what Silicon Valley has done – the advance of computers.

Buzz Aldrin
I think I thought it would be important for electronics as we knew it then, but that was a much simpler business and electronics was mostly radio and television and the first computers.

Jack Kilby
Social media has come a long way. With the good has come some bad, and you always have a lot of people hiding behind their computers and being very critical of what you do on and off the field, of what you tweet, of what you say, of everything you do.

Alex Morgan
We’re leading a fundamental shift from centralized energy to distributed energy. Energy will go in that direction, just like mainframe computers went to client servers, then to the Internet. I believe in solar, and the macro trends are just too undeniable.

Lynn Jurich
When they were done downloading all the information off each hard drive, they took all the computers, all the literature, and loaded everything into a big white truck and left.

Sherman Austin
Our computers double in capability on time scales of only a few years. It’s hardly outrageous to believe that we will successfully develop thinking machines within a handful of decades, or at most a century or two. If that happens, these artificial sentients will quickly leave us behind.

Seth Shostak
Calculating does not equal mathematics. It’s a subsection of it. In years gone by it was the limiting factor, but computers now allow you to make the whole of mathematics more intellectual.

Conrad Wolfram
Equipped with cell phones, beepers, and handheld computers, the ‘conspicuously industrious’ blur the line between home and office by working anytime, anywhere.

Jo Ann Davis
When I left Apple, it had $2 billion of cash. It was the most profitable computer company in the world – not just personal computers – and Apple was the number one selling computer.

John Sculley
I did not grow up around computers, so technology was not a tool used every day in my household. I was drawn to computer science due to the creative nature of programming and the technology focus.

Kimberly Bryant
Well, we didn’t have our original drummer on our last record. And most of that album was not played as a band in the studio. It was mostly the world of computers and overdubs. There was very few things played live or worked out as a band.

James Iha
What’s happened with society is that we have created these devices, computers, which already can register and process huge amounts of information, which is a significant fraction of the amount of information that human beings themselves, as a species, can process.

Seth Lloyd
Computers are great tools, but they need to be applied to the physical world.

Tony Fadell
The digital revolution is far more significant than the invention of writing or even of printing.

Douglas Engelbart
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.

W. Daniel Hillis
No computer or smartphone can ever be considered 100 percent ‘safe.’ We’re all engaged in a perpetual battle with criminals and hostile governments trying to use computers and the Internet to steal information and identities.

Walt Mossberg
From computers to information technology to airplanes, it has been America’s unique blend of republican government and free-market capitalism that has allowed us to surpass all other nations in history.

George Nethercutt
As a child, I did what any normal kid who grew up without any electricity would do – I spent countless hours working on a computer wired to my parents’ car battery… and learned how to code. This natural passion for computers lead me into the Internet market during the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Ryan Holmes
I didn’t want there to be a computer on stage. When I see people with computers on stage, I think, ‘Are you sending e-mail?’ That’s so corny.

Pat Metheny
Computers intimidate me.

Dylan Lauren
In the past, missionaries have traveled to far countries with the message of the gospel – with great hardship and often with the loss of life. In contrast, we can reach millions instantly from the comfort of our homes by merely hitting the ‘send’ button on our computers, or with iPads, or phones.

Ray Comfort
I hate the thought of my children being glued to a screen. Children only play on computers all day because their parents let them.

Mariella Frostrup
Social media can be dangerous. People hide behind their computers and write negative things, so I like to keep it about communicating with my fans.

Mo Farah
Computers are to design as microwaves are to cooking.

Milton Glaser
Computers are very powerful tools, but in the simulated world of the computer, everything has to be calculated.

Margaret Wertheim
Few companies that installed computers to reduce the employment of clerks have realized their expectations… They now need more, and more expensive clerks even though they call them ‘operators’ or ‘programmers.’

Peter Drucker
Computers are useless. They can only give you answers.

Pablo Picasso
I don’t look at computers as opponents. For me it is much more interesting to beat humans.

Magnus Carlsen
Keep in mind that there are computers, that do touch things up. Like when I got a hold of the poster for ‘Gold Diggers,’ I said: ‘Hey, wait a minute! Those aren’t my teeth!’

Anna Chlumsky
I honestly believe that people sit behind their computers and just get really brave.

Leslie Jones
As computer intelligence gets better, what will be possible when we interface our brains with computers? It might sound scary, but early evidence suggests otherwise: interfacing brains with machines can be helpful in treating traumatic brain injury, repairing spinal cord damage, and countless other applications.

Bill Maris
Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. They just fill your head with numbers and that can’t be good for you.

The real story of Facebook is just that we’ve worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded.

Mark Zuckerberg
The computer is not, in our opinion, a good model of the mind, but it is as the trumpet is to the orchestra – you really need it. And so, we have very massive simulations in computers because the problem is, of course, very complex.

Gerald Edelman
Computers sort of came around through games and toys. And you know, the first computer most people had in the house may have been a computer to play ‘Pong,’ a little microprocessor embedded, and then other games that came after that.

Rodney Brooks
I was born in Tamil Nadu. I built HCL in UP. The first computers of the world were built in UP, and the UP government has supported us all through.

Shiv Nadar
There has never been an unexpectedly short debugging period in the history of computers.

Steven Levy
A lot of journalists like to suck up to celebrities, and then as soon as they’re a safe distance away at their computers, they take shots. But that’s the way society has become, especially in pop culture.

Scott Weiland
The great advance of personal computers was not the computing power per se but the fact that it brought it right to your face, that you had control over it, that were confronted with it and could steer it.

Kevin Kelly
I don’t really love computers.

John Maeda
When I was growing up, I had lots of smart classmates that were girls, but none of us were really pushed into math or computers or anything like that. Girls took AP history and AP English and AP European history. And boys took calculus and physics.

Aileen Lee
The guy who knows about computers is the last person you want to have creating documentation for people who don’t understand computers.

Adam Osborne
Nobody expects that just because they’ve made computers better they’re going to give them to you free.

Dean Kamen
Computers don’t create computer animation any more than a pencil creates pencil animation. What creates computer animation is the artist.

John Lasseter
I started with CB radio, ham radio, and eventually went into computers. And I was just fascinated with it. And back then, when I was in school, computer hacking was encouraged. It was an encouraged activity. In fact, I remember one of the projects my teacher gave me was writing a log-in simulator.

Kevin Mitnick
The basic idea of Games With a Purpose is that we are taking a problem that computers cannot yet solve, and we are getting people to solve it for us while they are playing a game.

Luis von Ahn
I am a child of digital generation. I have done most of the records with Rilo Kiley on computers, on Pro Tools or other digital programs.

Jenny Lewis
There were no PCs when I started programming on computers.

Dave Winer
Software comes from heaven when you have good hardware.

Ken Olsen
Your car should drive itself. It’s amazing to me that we let humans drive cars… It’s a bug that cars were invented before computers.

Eric Schmidt
I’m a very simple person. I don’t use computers.

Carrie-Anne Moss
I think our problems are inherently unsolvable. We need to change our genetic make-up or create computers that will think us out of it. I don’t think humans are able to deal with what we have.

Neill Blomkamp
With the appearance of communications networks and interconnected computers, we got the world wide web, and it changed the lives of most people, I think.

Marvin Minsky
I am regularly asked what the average Internet user can do to ensure his security. My first answer is usually ‘Nothing; you’re screwed’.

Bruce Schneier
There is no heaven or afterlife for broken-down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.

Stephen Hawking
The idea that computers can ever replace teachers and schools reveals a deep lack of understanding about the role leadership plays in student success.

Wendy Kopp
I think people, just because of digital recording and how computers have become such an important part of our lives, I think the means to record music now is in more people’s hands. It’s a lot cheaper than it used to be.

Lou Barlow
The thing that changed everything for me was the Firefox browser. I was pretty bad when it came to computers – I didn’t know how powerful the internet could be until I discovered tabbed browsing.

Graham Linehan
We’re going to be able to ask our computers to monitor things for us, and when certain conditions happen, are triggered, the computers will take certain actions and inform us after the fact.

Steve Jobs
The human brain works in, so far, mysterious and wondrous ways that are completely different than the ways that computers calculate. Things like appetite or emotion, how do those function in the brain?

Paul Allen
I’ve never been much of a computer guy at least in terms of playing with computers. Actually until I was about 11 I didn’t use a computer for preparing for games at all. I was playing a bit online, was using the chess club mainly. Now, obviously, the computer is an important tool for me preparing for my games.

Magnus Carlsen
I use many different gadgets connected with computers; I use PCs, laptops and a Palm Pilot. I also use the Internet to visit websites, especially within Polish-language Internet. I usually go to political discussion groups and sites – of course, as I use my real name, people never believe that they are chatting with me!

Lech Walesa
I’m not a luddite. Science, computers, medicine, they’re all great. But nature is context. That which we can’t control. Its constant mortality and immortality is an answer to the terror of finite existence. It reassures the soul.

Victoria Coren Mitchell
The reason we personify things like cars and computers is that just as monkeys live in an arboreal world and moles live in an underground world and water striders live in a surface tension-dominated flatland, we live in a social world.

Richard Dawkins
Technological developments are changing the way we live, and there is much talk of digitalisation and the disruptive business models enabled by smart phones, tablets, computers, and the ‘Internet of things.’

Sharan Burrow
Managerial and professional people hadn’t really used computers, hadn’t sat down at keyboards, until personal computers. Personal computers have a totally different feel.

Mitch Kapor
I’m not very technically minded. I mean, I don’t know how to do e-mail on computers.

Kate Winslet
What we did not imagine was a Web of people, but a Web of documents.

Dale Dougherty
Imagine if every Thursday your shoes exploded if you tied them the usual way. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining.

Jef Raskin
I’m encouraging kids to use computers at their own pace to build aspirations.

Sugata Mitra
Our relationships with our computers are almost sexual, they’re so close. They’re just such a huge part of our lives.

Mackenzie Davis
My first introduction to computers and computer programming came during my freshman year of college. I majored in electrical engineering with a minor in computer science, so I learned during my required courses at Vanderbilt University.

Kimberly Bryant
I’m a Luddite with computers, and I’m slightly worried about being hacked as well.

Jo Brand
My daughter was 10 years old when she told me she hated computers. As someone who has spent her career helping build one of the largest tech companies in the world, I was in shock. Suddenly an issue I faced repeatedly at work – the lack of women in tech – hit squarely at home.

Susan Wojcicki
I’ve always been into computers. When I was getting out of high school and forming my identity musically, all of it was really coming into the fold, computers and drum machines. It felt like, you know, I’m in the right place at the right time. I liked the collision.

Trent Reznor
My mom bought a computer in the ’80s to do accounting, and she was so smart at computers that we spent all our time with them. My childhood was sitting on the floor of her office and figuring out how to program with my mom.

Brianna Wu
No one ever said on their deathbed, ‘Gee, I wish I had spent more time alone with my computer’.

Danielle Berry
The humanitarian developers behind World of Warcraft have also discovered a way to bribe gamers into turning off their computers and going outside. If you log off for a few days, your character will be more ‘rested’ when you resume playing, a mode that temporarily speeds up your leveling.

Clive Thompson
I’ve come to a view that humans will continue to do what we do well, and that computers will continue to do what they do very well, and the two will coexist, but in different spaces.

Eric Schmidt
I continue to meet people who have had their Web pages hijacked, their browsers corrupted, in some cases, their children exposed to inappropriate material from these dangerous programs hidden in their family computers.

Cliff Stearns
I can live without endless television programmes and films just centered around computers. I can sort of live without that.

Martin Freeman
The idea that so many kids eat rubbish and sit on computers all day long appals me and getting them into sport is a major way of getting them off computers and leading healthier lives.

Kirsty Gallacher
I am a huge supporter for cash for caulkers – which allows people to make improvement for energy efficient in their homes. We should do the same for Americans purchasing appliances and computers and for that matter, new air-conditioner and heating units.

Harold Ford, Jr.
In fact, technology has been the story of human progress from as long back as we know. In 100 years people will look back on now and say, ‘That was the Internet Age.’ And computers will be seen as a mere ingredient to the Internet Age.

Reed Hastings
For me, growing up coding and computers and video games wasn’t something that was cool, but it was something that I was always passionate about. I never let the fact that that wasn’t something that was cool take me away from it.

Man-made computers are limited in their performance by finite processing speed and memory. So, too, the cosmic computer is limited in power by its age and the finite speed of light.

Paul Davies
The use of computers and other mobile devices has to be so carefully controlled. As we discovered with ‘Dream School’ rather awkwardly, it can become a source of total disruption that destroys the co-operative learning experience.

David Starkey
It is an interesting fact that during my tour I was never allowed access to computers, radios, or anything else that I might damage through curiosity, or perhaps something more sinister.

Robert B. Laughlin
There are jobs, particularly database-oriented ones, for which computers are necessary, but for everyday office life, I question whether they have brought the productivity that their enormous cost, up to £10,000 per person, demands.

Felix Dennis
The computer is a moron.

Peter Drucker
People talk about computer programmers as if computers are our whole lives. That’s simply not true.

Ellen Ullman
Computers are scary. They’re nightmares to fix, lose our stuff, and, on occasion, they crash, producing the blue screen of death. Steve Jobs knew this. He knew that computers were bulky and hernia-inducing and Darth Vader black. He understood the value of declarative design.

Wesley Morris
A computer is a general-purpose machine with which we engage to do some of our deepest thinking and analyzing. This tool brings with it assumptions about structuredness, about defined interfaces being better. Computers abhor error.

Ellen Ullman
Computers, like automobiles and airplanes, do only what people tell them to do.

Bill James
My dad used to build computers for the U.S. government, for military intelligence. So he always had computers around the house.

Randy Pitchford
My first computers were a Timex Sinclair and an Apple II.

Walt Mossberg
People are so bad at driving cars that computers don’t have to be that good to be much better. Any time you stand in line at the D.M.V. and look around, you’re like, Oh, my God, I wish all these people were replaced by computer drivers.

Marc Andreessen
You have riches and freedom here but I feel no sense of faith or direction. You have so many computers, why don’t you use them in the search for love?

Lech Walesa
I’m too old-fashioned to use a computer. I’m too old-fashioned to use a quill.

Christopher Plummer
The spread of computers and the Internet will put jobs in two categories. People who tell computers what to do, and people who are told by computers what to do.

Marc Andreessen
Theaters are always going to be around, and doing fine. With computers and technology, we’re becoming more and more secluded from each other. And the movie theater is one of the last places where we can still gather and experience something together. I don’t think the desire for that magic will ever go away.

Wolfgang Petersen
Eventually, I believe, current attempts to understand the mind by analogy with man-made computers that can perform superbly some of the same external tasks as conscious beings will be recognized as a gigantic waste of time.

Thomas Nagel
Dell fills its computers with crapware, collecting fees from McAfee and other vendors to pre-install ‘trial’ versions.

Barton Gellman
I am cursed with computers; something always goes wrong.

Carla Bruni
With all the abundance we have of computers and computing, what is scarce is human attention and time.

Satya Nadella
I’m not really gadget oriented. I’m not into technology or computers. I’m not good at interfacing with that sort of gear.

Nicolas Cage
Charlestoning is hard. People were fit in the ’20s to be able to do that. I guess they didn’t sit in front of their computers all day.

Elizabeth Debicki
Our successes have been so great and so rapid that, within 20 years, we’ve gotten a third of the world’s population online, shrunk our computers to the size of our hands, and connected each to each.

Caterina Fake
In effect, the Internet is a global connection of interconnected computers. It has been described as truly a peer-to-peer system with many distributed nodes and no central point of control architecture.

Miriam Defensor-Santiago
I don’t think Apple would be making the computers, the iPhone, being the top electronics company it is, if Steve Jobs didn’t have some regrets over mistakes he made and learned to overcome them.

Vitor Belfort
To err is human – and to blame it on a computer is even more so.

Robert Orben
The Internet is not just one thing, it’s a collection of things – of numerous communications networks that all speak the same digital language.

James H. Clark
Fungible goods in economics can be extended and traded. So, half as much grain is half as much useful, but half a baby or half a computer is less useful than a whole baby or a whole computer, and we’ve been trying to make computers that work that way.

Neil Gershenfeld
I grew up before computers. Computers are changing things, not all for the good.

Graham Hawkes
Some people are on their darn computers all day long.

Paul Nassif
The future lies in designing and selling computers that people don’t realize are computers at all.

Adam Osborne
Future generations will know there’s nothing mystical about wetware because by 2100, Moore’s law will have given us tiny quantum computers powerful enough to upload a human soul.

Frank Tipler
That’s the new way – with computers, computers, computers. That’s the way we can have the cell survive and get some new information in high resolution. We started about five years ago and, today, I think we have reached the target.

Lennart Nilsson
My dad used to work at IBM, so we used to get discounts on computers and stuff, and I did have a ThinkPad.

Jimmy Fallon
I think we are at the very beginning of high changes, not only in terms of digital film, but in the way the movies will be screened, whether they’ll be screened on phones, on computers – on everything.

Michel Hazanavicius
I get hired to hack into computers now and sometimes it’s actually easier than it was years ago.

Kevin Mitnick
Access to computers and the Internet has become a basic need for education in our society.

Kent Conrad
My father raised me to build computers, hardware. Literally, as an 8 year old, I had a soldering iron and circuit boards, and this was in neighbourhoods that wouldn’t have a whole lot of money or anything. And I figured out ways to just hustle.

The way we live is changing. Each year, our free time shrinks a little more as computers clamor for an increasing percentage of our attention.

Ruth Reichl
Computers have proved to be formidable chess players. In fact, they’ve beaten our top human chess champions.

Neil deGrasse Tyson
Everybody uses computers to train so much now that the first nine or 10 moves of a match are made without thinking.

Hikaru Nakamura
If you take a regular animated film, that’s being done by animators on computers, so the filmmaking is a fairly technical process.

Peter Jackson
I happen to think that computers are the most important thing to happen to musicians since the invention of cat-gut which was a long time ago.

Robert Moog
I’ve never really been very interested in computers themselves. I don’t watch them; I watch how people behave around them. That’s becoming more difficult to do because everything is around them.

William Gibson
Everyone knows, or should know, that everything we type on our computers or say into our cell phones is being disseminated throughout the datasphere. And most of it is recorded and parsed by big data servers. Why do you think Gmail and Facebook are free? You think they’re corporate gifts? We pay with our data.

Douglas Rushkoff
It’s not as if I’ve never been awkward myself. I’m a big gamer, so I’ve had access to that type of personality. I used to go to these LAN parties; that was before high-speed Internet. The only way you could get lag-free gaming was to haul these huge computers to people’s houses.

Thomas Middleditch
We’ve seen computers play chess and beat grand masters. We’ve seen computers drive a car across a desert. But interestingly, playing chess is easy, but having a conversation about nothing is really difficult for a computer.

Hod Lipson
It’s important to be informed about issues like usability, reliability, security, privacy, and some of the inherent limitations of computers.

Brian Kernighan
Originally, I was in both software and in online computing. The first innovation really was sort of at that time that we’re marrying the telephone and the computer so that people wouldn’t have to drive to the computer center. We didn’t have $1,000 computers.

Sam Wyly
I use computers for email, staying current with my own website as well as finding important information through other websites. I also use it for creating MP3 files of new music I’m working on.

Clint Black
Computers are hierarchical. We have a desktop and hierarchical files which have to mean everything.

Ted Nelson
I loathe computers more and more, so I have one I can shut down and shelve like a book.

Will Self
Everyone was saying computers were going to be the future of art; everyone had to do something in this medium. And it was almost some sort of rebellion that I wanted to do these small, intimate drawings.

Marcel Dzama
Coding is like writing, and we live in a time of the new industrial revolution. What’s happened is that maybe everybody knows how to use computers, like they know how to read, but they don’t know how to write.

Susan Wojcicki
Some claim that computers will, by 2050, achieve human capabilities. Of course, in some respects they already have.

Martin Rees
We’ve been working now with computers and education for 30 years, computers in developing countries for 20 years, and trying to make low-cost machines for 10 years. This is not a sudden turn down the road.

Nicholas Negroponte
I didn’t know much about computers. I still worked on a manual Olivetti typewriter.

Mona Simpson
A wonderful thing about a book, in contrast to a computer screen, is that you can take it to bed with you.

Daniel J. Boorstin
I take computers practically apart and put them back together. I have a supercomputer I built over the years out of different computers.

Jared Leto
The only way we can fly planes and use computers is because people were curious about their world and also skeptical about the things they were told to be immutable, so they figured out other ways of doing things.

Jamie Hyneman
It was the summer of 1998. At that point, we were just scrounging around to find resources; we had stolen these computers from all over the department, sort of.

Sergey Brin
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
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.

Sydney J. Harris
We’re getting so pulled in by computers and technology, and our kids have their face in the computers all day. The human relationship is being diminished by this.

Lenny Kravitz
I always wanted to be a pilot, though somewhere down the line switched to computers.

Shefali Zariwala
Desktop computers – boxes inside boxes – began appearing in those cubicles in the mid-eighties, electrical cords curling on the floor like so many ropes.

Jill Lepore
The diverse threats we face are increasingly cyber-based. Much of America’s most sensitive data is stored on computers. We are losing data, money, and ideas through cyber intrusions. This threatens innovation and, as citizens, we are also increasingly vulnerable to losing our personal information.

James Comey
Girls are interested in computers, there just are not many programs out there for them.

Judith Love Cohen
Computer science is one of the worst things that ever happened to either computers or to science.

Neil Gershenfeld
The idea behind digital computers may be explained by saying that these machines are intended to carry out any operations which could be done by a human computer.

Alan Turing
While the recent addition of the National Guard providing a support role manning computers and cameras has allowed more Border Patrol agents to work the field, more agents are still needed.

Timothy Murphy
I watch virtually no TV. All my screen time is computer time for me. When I’m not doing that I’m reading or talking to my friends who I got to know through computers.

Patrick Collison
Everywhere I look, there are ads marking Mother’s Day. Mostly they conform to stereotype: flowers, jewelry, perfume. Not a lot of books. Not many computers. Few tools. Little that’s useful.

Margaret Heffernan
In computing, turning the obvious into the useful is a living definition of the word ‘frustration’.

Alan Perlis
The Web is actually a coming together of three technologies, if you like: the hypertext, the personal computer, and the network. So, the network we had, and the personal computers were there, but people didn’t use them, because they didn’t know what to use them for, except maybe for a few games.

Robert Cailliau
We need a lot more technically literate people. The computers are the tools that are going to solve essentially all problems, and the people who can use them better will be more effective.

Tobias Lutke
Using social media to hurt and destroy is callous, acted out by cowards hiding behind computers. My advice is to ignore negativity. Focus on the love around.

Martin Garrix
Elon Musk is talking about silicon nanoparticles pulsing through our veins to make us sort of semi-cyborg computers. But why not take a noninvasive approach? I’ve been working and trying to think and invent a way to do this for a number of years and finally happened upon it and left Facebook to do it.

Mary Lou Jepsen
Cryptocurrency currencies take the concept of money, and they take it native into computers, where everything is settled with computers and doesn’t require external institutions or trusted third parties to validate things.

Naval Ravikant
People are good at intuition, living our lives. What are computers good at? Memory.

Eric Schmidt
Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is competently programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest.

Isaac Asimov
You can involve yourself in electronics, computers, puzzles… there’s a lot of creativity and brain working. There’s a lot to model trains that people don’t realize.

Gary Coleman
If you want to make computers that really work, create a design team composed only of healthy, active women with lots else to do in their lives, and give them carte blanche.

Brian Eno
Given the volume of PC sales and the way McAfee runs its operation, I imagine there must be thousands of phantom subscribers – folks who signed up once upon a time and left the software behind two or three computers ago.

Barton Gellman
I don’t bother with computers, although I have an electronic reader.

June Brown
While the digital transformation of industries will be profound, we must keep in mind that it will have wider economic and social impact, too, as with previous revolutions driven by steam and coal, electricity and computers.

Pierre Nanterme
You can go as far back as fifth grade, and you will find me tinkering with media and computers, making things that are a little off the beaten track.

Robin Sloan
When hackers have access to powerful computers that use brute force hacking, they can crack almost any password; even one user with insecure access being successfully hacked can result in a major breach.

Toomas Hendrik Ilves
Computers and the Internet have made it really easy to rant. It’s made everyone overly opinionated.

Scott Weiland
Today, computers help us making the music. It’s really a tool.

Yael Naim
But computers have changed the world for everyone, so there will be some way of working it out.

Debbie Harry
Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all.

John F. Kennedy
When humans team up with computers to play chess, the humans who do best are not necessarily the strongest players. They’re the ones who are modest and who know when to listen to the computer. Often, what the human adds is knowledge of when the computer needs to look more deeply.

Tyler Cowen
We didn’t know the importance of home computers before the Internet. We had them mostly for fun, then the Internet came along and was enabled by all the PCs out there.

Burt Rutan
Technologies evolve in the strangest ways. Computers were created to calculate ballistics equations, and now we use them to create amusing illusions. Creating amusing illusions is a big business if you play it right.

Howard Rheingold
In 2004, the iPod was a novelty, and tablet computers were a dream. Now we take for granted that we can see whatever we want whenever and wherever we want to see it, be it ‘Grand Illusion’ or ‘Duck Dynasty.’

Terry Teachout
Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don’t let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.

Clifford Stoll
I don’t know where anyone ever got the idea that technology, in and of itself, was a savior. Like all human-created ‘progress,’ computers are problematic, giving and taking away.

Ellen Ullman
I grew up loving computers and math, actually. I also loved English literature and French, but I became obsessed with computers when the Apple II was coming out.

Parker Harris
Imagine if we can just talk to our computers and have it understand, ‘Please schedule a meeting with Bob for next week.’ Or if each child could have a personalized tutor. Or if self-driving cars could save all of us hours of driving.

Andrew Ng
Computers are famous for being able to do complicated things starting from simple programs.

Seth Lloyd
People assume that computers will do everything that humans do. Not good. People are different from each other and they are all really different from computers.

Eric Schmidt
Computers can’t find the unexpected, but people can when they eyeball the data.

Debra Fischer
Interactive computers and software will, I think, provide a less costly method of doing some kinds of inquiry, in knowledge acquisition and even reasoning and interaction.

Roy Romer
Computers are the most powerful tools that humanity has ever created. Yet, we treat them largely as a black box; as if it were an alien artifact that magically appeared on desks, in homes, and in our pockets.

Tobias Lutke
Women in finance bore the brunt of layoffs more than their male counterparts during the Great Recession in 2008 and were also more likely to have been in back office jobs that were replaced by computers.

Mary Pilon
Filecoin is a token with fundamental value. Filecoin is like Bitcoin, but miners amass hard drives instead of hashing computers.

Juan Benet
I can write anywhere. But I don’t use a computer, and I could never write on a laptop. I hate the sound of computers; it’s too dull, like it’s not doing anything for you.

Elmore Leonard
You can’t have thousands of cars without good computers on the electric grid.

Shai Agassi
What is Apple, after all? Apple is about people who think ‘outside the box,’ people who want to use computers to help them change the world, to help them create things that make a difference, and not just to get a job done.

Steve Jobs
Irony is going to be hard to get. You have to be master of the literal first. But then, Americans don’t get irony either. Computers are going to reach the level of Americans before Brits.

Geoffrey Hinton
Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It’s going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.

J. G. Ballard
I thought of computers as very low class. I thought of myself as a pure mathematician and was interested in partial differential equations and topology and things like that.

Whitfield Diffie
The big question society will have to answer is whether it wants computers thinking like humans.

David Smith
I call the blockchain ‘the Internet of value’ and ‘the Internet of trust.’ Because everything becomes trustless. It’s a big distributed ledger. Think of it like an Excel file that’s being maintained and updated and managed by millions of computers around the world.

Brock Pierce
This is what customers pay us for – to sweat all these details so it’s easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We’re supposed to be really good at this. That doesn’t mean we don’t listen to customers, but it’s hard for them to tell you what they want when they’ve never seen anything remotely like it.

Steve Jobs
I am very bad at computers. I don’t really know how to write email.

Marjane Satrapi
A wide variety of devices beyond personal computers are arriving, many of which will be used to browse the Web… The Flash engineering team has taken this on with a major overhaul of the mainstream Flash Player for a variety of devices.

Kevin Lynch
I actually did not touch any type of computer until I came to America. I knew computers existed, yes, but I didn’t have access to them. In the Philippines, I did have video games.

Bretman Rock
Now that we’ve got computers, you can pump up anything that anybody ever uttered.

Dick Clark
I was nerdy and really into computers. I was a good student until my senior year, when I started traveling and had a lot of absences.

Tony Hawk
People are on their computers more than watching TV, because you can only watch voyeur TV, which is basically what reality shows are, for so long.

Stephen Root
The only thing I do on a computer is play Texas Hold ‘Em, really. Obviously my cell phone is a computer. My car is a computer. I’m on computers every day without actively seeking them out.

John Hawkes
Most of the musicians that I know almost to the man everybody uses Apple computers. They’ve thought of the steps that you’re going to think of when you’re trying to create your thing. And that’s where the tools get invented to make better art.

Mike Shinoda
Inside all the computers of any large corporation is every decision that gets made. But people spend a huge amount of time trying to find the correct piece of information.

Stewart Butterfield
The future of television is not on television but online. A majority of us are turning to our computers and mobile devices for news and entertainment, Millennials especially.

Jason Calacanis
I think after a time there won’t be anything left to be interesting for mankind. Computers are about to do everything for us. Cellphones are smarter than we are. We’ll embrace spirituality because we’ll be bored of everything else.

Damian Marley
That’s what happens nowadays with people working on computers. They can so easily fix things with their mouse and take out all the, ‘Oh, somebody coughed in the background; we need to take that out’ – or somebody hit a bad note. Those are all the best moments.

Jack White
The future of filmmaking is to make the canvas bigger, something you can’t enjoy on your phones or computers.

Sidharth Malhotra
I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend’s garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computers and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together.

Steve Jobs
So a more sensible thing it seemed to me was to go to Silicon Valley and be pushing on the technology companies to accelerate the use of audio and music in computers.

Thomas Dolby
