Quote

“When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is – everything around you that you call life, was made up by people……AND YOU CAN CHANGE IT.”

Bill Gates.

Quote of the day

In today’s digital world, there is no longer any reason to use class time to transfer notes of the instructor to the notes of the student (without passing through the brain of either).

Quote of the day

“I have a foreboding of an America a universe in my children’s or grandchildren’s time–when the Unites States world is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries been automated and run by computerised human machines(robots); when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.”

                                    By Carl Sagan,  The Demon-Haunted World

Quote of the day

“All new technologies develop within a background of tacit understanding of human nature and human work. The use of technology in turn leads to fundamental changes in what we do, and ultimately what it is to be human. We encounter deep questions of design when we recognize that in designing tools we are designing ways of being”.

By Terry Winograd and Fernando Flores in Understanding Computers and Cognition
