“The Internet has crept up on us, and we need to know what it is and start looking at it. We have to decide which bits we want, which bits we don’t, and how we’re going to use them – and how we’re going to put pressure on the people who deliver these goods to deliver what we really want.”

― Beeban Kidron

“On telly, there’s been a move towards entertainment – with some very high-powered, fast-moving dramas. Then we have the Internet, where we get our information but it’s all in bite-size pieces. I think the documentary, as a form, actually speaks to what’s missing.”

― Beeban Kidron

“What is the point of teaching how to analyse a poem or a piece of Shakespeare but not to analyse the Internet?”

― Beeban Kidron

― Ben Huh

“People rely on Wikipedia, and a lot of it is wrong. But because there it is on the Internet, they assume it’s right. Rumor gets printed as fact. We may have lost our critical facility as a nation.”

― Benedict Samuel

“There’s a new success model, and us and some of our peers are now starting to prove that TV and very traditional content also works on the Internet, specifically on YouTube, and it can rival television audiences and television production value. ‘MyMusic’ is proof of that, having a successful run and now coming back for a second season.”

― Benny Fine

“From early on… we really looked at the Internet as a whole new way to provide storytelling and entertainment.”

― Benny Fine

“It’s very rare for the Internet to have a successful narrative show like ‘MyMusic.’ It’s really a case study for what is the future of the sitcom.”

― Bill Gates

“There are websites that any government wants to block. The truth about the Internet is that it’s extremely hard to block anything – extremely hard. You’ll never get perfect blocking.”

“The move to tax Internet sales, clothed as a ‘fairness’ issue, is the typical ‘wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing’ ploy so often used by governments unwilling to cut expenditures to match revenues. It matters not whether its proponents have a ‘D’ or an ‘R’ after their name. It is a tax increase in either case.”

― Bob Barr

“We are now in a situation in which we will have to rely on market forces to maintain a free and open Internet. And nobody really knows whether that will work or not. One thing we do know is we didn’t need to do this to ourselves. This was a solution in search of a problem.”

― Brian Schatz

“People are hurting out there, perhaps they are ready to start a conversation about whether an AR-15 belongs in the hands of a citizen, whether a citizen should be able 6,000 rounds on the internet.”

― Brian Williams

“If it wasn’t for technology and the Internet, I wouldn’t have been able to plan a wedding because I’m never home.”

― Brie Bella

“I think more things are becoming socially acceptable. I think that just by having more media, whether that’s TV or Internet, we’re able to see more things.”

― Brie Larson

“Our generation grew up with technology. It evolved as we grew up. This new generation has had it since they were babies. That’s crazy. It fundamentally changes they way they understand and think about technology. They’ve never known life without it, whereas we knew life without the Internet.”

― Brit Morin

“I was extremely curious growing up. I taught myself how to sew, French braid, and cook. When I wasn’t creating things with my hands, I was learning more about tech. I was experimenting with email at nine, had my first cell phone at 13, and was truly obsessed with the Internet as a teenager.”

― Brit Morin

“I see the Internet as the next big deal – I wanted to get in on it early on so I wouldn’t get behind it all.”

― Bruce Campbell

“With the Internet, bands can come and go every five minutes and the music looks disposable.”

― Bruce Dickinson

“Yes, I play computer games. I think you’ve got to embrace the latest technology. For someone to dismiss games as not important would be the same as saying the Internet is not important.”

― Bruce Feirstein

“People are tired of just watching their TV set passively. They are playing interactive games today. They are on the Internet interacting. They want to be part of their TV set.”

― Bruce Nash

“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

“I’m accustomed to Internet forums where rudeness and incivility are the rule, where too many people seem to take pride in their insults.”

― Bryan Burrough

“I must be the last person online to have been struck with this realization, but it’s amazing how the Internet has empowered hundreds of ordinary people, turning them into little Diane Sawyers and Anderson Coopers as they snap and blog away.”

― Bryan Burrough

“The moment we put up the PayPal button, some guy donated $300. That’s when we realized that if you give somebody a chance to support something on the Internet, they’ll do it.”

― Burnie Burns

“I lived a significant portion of my life before the Internet and smart phones.”

― Burnie Burns

“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

“There may be a new album, and there may not. Right now, we’re encouraging bootlegging because there have been some great live things that ended up on the Internet. Rather than try to stop it, we like it. If nobody gave a crap about you, they wouldn’t bother to bootleg you.”

― Burton Cummings

“At the very least, you must make the Internet free in areas that are poverty-stricken. Without the Internet and access to information, poverty-stricken households will never catch up to households above the poverty line – throwing the African-American community deeper into the stone ages.”

― Byron Allen

“Treat your online affairs as part of your affairs that need to be in order – your bank, your Internet bill – you need to have people who know what you want.”

― Caitlin Doughty

“I mean, Internet radio, which is basically a guy with his iTunes putting it over the computer, is the only way you’re going to get true eclectic music programmed.”

― Cameron Crowe

“I’m working on bridging the gap between mainstream famous and Internet famous. They’re two different things, but eventually, social media will be the way to become a celebrity.”

― Cameron Dallas

“Just as soaps were very pivotal in the transition from radio to television, they will be right in the thick of things again in the transition from television to the Internet. Exciting news.”

― Cameron Mathison

“You can be anything. You could be the President of the United States or the inventor of the next Internet or a ninja cardio-thoracic surgeon poet, which would be awesome because you would be the first one.”

― Cameron Russell

“The rise of the Internet and the camera phone have started to change what stories are accessible.”

― Cameron Russell

“The Internet has created an incredible democratization of the architecture industry.”

― Cameron Sinclair

“They’ve got a great tool in the Internet. If you’ve really got a good movement, you can see who likes you.”

― Cam’ron

“A lot of rumours on the Internet are wrong and horrible.”

― Carine Roitfeld

“First, I’d become an avid reader of blogs, especially music blogs, and they seemed to be where the critical-thinking action was at, to have the kind of energy that I associate with rock writing of the 1970s or Internet e-mail discussion lists a decade ago.”

― Carl Wilson

“Today, dancers have so much more information and are much more mobile. Kids are traveling everywhere to go to summer programs, funding themselves with Kickstarter – putting their dreams on the Internet and seeing if they will pan out.”

― Carla Korbes

“You cannot make thousands of universities or hundreds of thousands of professors, but with technology and the Internet you can have great courses and make a digital university.”

― Carlos Slim

“I think ‘Lost’ was really a pioneer in the use of the kind of connection between a television show and the Internet, and the Internet really gave fans an opportunity to create a community around the show. That was something that wasn’t really planned; it just sort of grew up in the wake of the show.”

― Carlton Cuse

“The GAO just released a report that said 22 percent of federal programs fail to meet their objectives. The truth is we don’t know how taxpayer money is spent in Washington, D.C., which is why I think we ought to put every agency budget up on the Internet for everyone to see.”

― Carly Fiorina

“I really love the internet. They say chat-rooms are the trailer park of the internet but I find it amazing.”

― Carrie Fisher

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

― Carrie Underwood

“Television is, in many respects, a passive medium: people receive information without really exchanging ideas with others. By contrast, the Internet can be an active medium, allowing individuals to use e-mail, discussion groups, and even Web sites to engage with one another.”

― Cass Sunstein

“I’m interested in how the Internet spreads information.”

― Cass Sunstein

“Web publishing can create common spaces; it all depends on how we, the readers and sometimes the producers, react to technological change. If we sort ourselves into narrow groups, common spaces will be in big trouble. But there’s no reason not to have common spaces on the Internet. There are lots of them out there.”

― Cass Sunstein

“We shouldn’t limit the idea of ‘policy recommendations’ to regulators. On the Internet, all of us are, in a sense, policymakers.”

― Cass Sunstein

“I would love to do something like ‘Tosh.0,’ where I host Internet clips. I did host ‘Talk Soup,’ which is similar. I love doing that, making fun of video clips on the Internet.”

― Cassandra Peterson

“I don’t even own my own name on the internet – somebody else bought it.”

― Cat Deeley

“My background isn’t in social software; it’s in online community, social networks, personal publishing, blogging, self-expression on the Web. I got on the Internet in the 1980s, and the magic moment for me arose from my being a literature geek, especially Dante and Shakespeare.”

― Caterina Fake

“A lot of things have changed since the days of Flickr. Facebook has concentrated the sociality of the Internet within its blue borders, like a Walmart siphoning off the mom-and-pop shops that formerly comprised the Internet’s gathering places. Communication, in the age of mobile dominance, has become, of necessity, shorter and snack-sized.”

― Caterina Fake

“I’m an accidental business person. I just love the medium. I love the Internet.”

― Caterina Fake

“Not as much as I used to, but I use the Internet for everything. I use it for information. Like if I’m planning a trip or something, I’ll check out the place I’m going to.”

― Catherine Bell

“It seems like every few years a big name author will holler something about how evil, heinous, and morally wrong fan fiction and fan fiction writers are, and then the Internet gets all upset and shocked, and then the author is shocked that people could get so upset.”

― Catherynne M. Valente

“The Internet is amazing.”

― Cecilia Dart-Thornton

“Back in my days as a children’s book editor, my superiors caught on to the fact that teenagers were using the Internet to gossip about each other, and thought it might be nifty to develop a series of books about an anonymous high-school blogger who gossips about her classmates. The concept was passed on to me.”

― Cecily von Ziegesar

“If I’m working on the Internet, you know, it’s different than working on television.”

― Cenk Uygur

“In the Internet world, especially in Silicon Valley, everyone is at the ready all the time, and turnaround is relatively short, if not instant.”

― Chad Hurley

“Running helped me learn how to deal with failure, and failure is a big part of the Internet business.”

― Chad Hurley

“With YouTube – with the Internet in general – you have information overload. The people who don’t necessarily get credit are the curators.”

― Chad Hurley

“There’s not really any safe places on the Internet.”

― Chad Hurley

“People just don’t sit down and just watch TV at night. Between cellphones, television, video games, the Internet and instant messaging, people are just spending their time in different places.”

― Chad Hurley

“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

“Everyone knows that the broadband era will breed a new generation of online services, but this is only half of the story. Like any innovation, broadband will inflict major changes on its environment. It will destroy, once and for all, the egalitarian vision of the Internet.”

― Charles Platt

“Unsurprisingly, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) – once a luxury for room-sized computer installations – is now a standard item both in home offices and all the networked tiers above, protecting servers and online service providers, Internet backbones, phone companies, and even cable TV networks.”

― Charles Platt

“I’m actually really bad at the Internet. I’m never scouring it to find new artists or new anything.”

― Charli XCX

“I have often felt the worlds of social media and the Internet are like a weird dreamscape. Even physically, when you are looking at your phone, you are out of it.”

― Charlie Brooker

“If we really wanted to be cool, and everyone in the world had Pro Tools, we could just put it up on the internet and everyone could make their own record out of it.”

― Charlie Hunter

“I can feel so bad about myself, especially if I start to pay attention to the kinds of stupid comments around the Internet.”

― Charlotte McKinney

“I stay off the Internet.”

― Chaske Spencer

“As more and more people reach the Internet by mobile phone, we should make sure users are getting the open access they believe they’re paying for.”

― Chellie Pingree

“The FCC can and indeed should do more to protect the Internet as the free and open environment people have come to expect and depend on – which is why we need to stand up to attacks on the FCC’s authority.”

― Chellie Pingree

“People’s mouse clicks decide what businesses, services, and content succeed. Users have equal access to tiny businesses with viral ideas and blue-chip companies, allowing these enterprises to compete on their own merits. It’s how so many small start-ups have been able to become Internet success stories.”

― Chellie Pingree

“Net Neutrality – a guiding principle of the Internet since its beginning – means that content is all treated equally.”

― Chellie Pingree

“We need to make Net Neutrality the law. We need to elect a Congress that will make it a priority to keep this important principal intact – and insure equal and open access to the Internet for all.”

― Chellie Pingree

“Certainly, my advice is that communicating, lobbying, fundraising and engaging the public in policy and politics is far more exciting and inexpensive via the Internet. Old guard organizations like Common Cause had to evolve to embrace this new environment.”

― Chellie Pingree

“What’s profound and exciting is the way young people are taking advantage of the fact that the Internet enables everyone to have a megaphone. It enables everyone to stand up and say, ‘I deserve to be heard, and I demand that you listen.’”

― Chelsea Clinton

“I barely watch TV. Somehow, I make it work with just the Internet. On TV, there’s always so much crap, and you have to flip around.”

― Chelsea Peretti

“Our generation’s grown up with the Internet, so it’s an extension of our social lives; it’s an extension of us. It makes perfect sense for me to use that medium.”

― Chet Faker

“The younger generation is surrounded by the Internet, apps, and video games. But somehow, my books make them read.”

― Chetan Bhagat

“I feel like contemporary art is everywhere now and with the rise of the internet, it’s so much easier to see what artists are doing and to follow their careers.”

― China Chow

“If I could edit Google Images, then I wouldn’t be as scared of the Internet.”

― Chloe Sevigny

“In this time of the Internet and nonfiction, to be on an actual bookshelf in an actual bookstore is exciting in itself.”

― Chris Abani

“And it’s interesting, when you look at the predictions made during the peak of the boom in the 1990s, about e-commerce, or internet traffic, or broadband adoption, or internet advertising, they were all right – they were just wrong in time.”

― Chris Anderson

“The Internet has exceeded our collective expectations as a revolutionary spring of information, news, and ideas. It is essential that we keep that spring flowing. We must not thwart the Internet’s availability by taxing access to it.”

― Chris Cannon

“Radio and TV can still push a band, but things need to be shaken up. There is the Internet, but mostly what I see there is little kids on YouTube playing music.”

― Chris Cornell

“If you look at the evolution of games from console to Internet to mobile, and look at social networking from Web to mobile, everything is fragmenting.”

― Chris DeWolfe

“While on the space station, I kept up with news a couple of ways – Mission Control sent daily summaries, and I would scan headlines on Google News when we had an Internet connection, which was about half the time.”

― Chris Hadfield

“My real big Internet claim to fame is the fact that I was first to jailbreak the iPhone.”

― Chris Hughes

“We don’t think the blockchain can do most of what’s been ascribed to it. But we’re entering the Internet of value – and that is very much underhyped.”

― Chris Larsen

“I feel like the Internet has really freed everything up to an extent, hasn’t it? That radio maybe doesn’t have quite the power that it had before.”

― Chris Lowe

“It’s more egalitarian on the Internet – anyone can put anything up. But in terms of the money it takes to allow a band to get good, there’s less of it to invest.”

― Chris Martin

“Fans write to us via our publisher and more than ever via the Internet, blogs and fan sites, and good writers should be actively seeking out that interaction. Gone are the days when writers are dead or hidden away in dusty attics; nowadays, you’ve got to get out there.”

― Chris Riddell

“I was in the room when Sundar convinced Eric Schmidt that it would be possible to unseat Internet Explorer as the world’s most popular browser.”

― Chris Sacca

“If Trump publicly commits to embrace science, stops threatening censorship of the Internet, rejects fake news and denounces hate against our diverse employees, only then it would make sense for tech leaders to visit Trump Tower.”

― Chris Sacca

“The Internet is not pervasive as it could be, or democratic.”

― Chris Sacca

“The Internet is a fantastic, strange place where you can write an open letter and be reasonably assured that people are going to read it.”

― Chris Weitz

“The Internet definitely could be a weapon of mass destruction – it’s not going to come in a bomb, it’s going to come as a cyberattack. It’s pretty amazing to see what a small group of people can do if they really know how to control the universe.”

― Christian Slater

“I’ve always believed that you need to find interactive applications on the Internet.”

― Christie Hefner

“I really don’t spend any time on the Internet, so I guess I live a little under a rock in that respect.”

― Christina Aguilera

“People have posted my personal information on the Internet. This has resulted in additional emails, calls, and threats. My family and I were forced to move out of our home.”

― Christine Blasey Ford

“Look at ISIS – without the Internet, they wouldn’t exist in the same form. The Internet didn’t create them, but the Internet facilitates them. And as we know from history, the facilitation is more dangerous than the cause, because the cause can be dealt with, but the facilitation is elusive.”

― Christoph Waltz

“We live in an era now where every episode is reviewed 80 different times on the Internet by periodicals you’ve never even heard of.”

― Christopher Lloyd

“The tragic thing about the Internet is that you can find out way too much, way too quickly.”

― Christopher McCulloch

“I love the Internet. I love my mobile devices. I love the fact that they mean that whoever chooses to will be able to watch this talk far beyond this auditorium.”

― Chrystia Freeland

“The mobile Internet is growing, fueled by increasing smartphone penetration and better networks.”

― Chua Sock Koong

“I think the Internet was the saving grace for Public Enemy. Before that, travelling the world saved Public Enemy.”

― Chuck D

“The Internet was a saving grace for promoting and exposing, and even creating. It’s a parallel world to the music industry that already exists, and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

― Chuck D

“The Internet in the 21st Century is as important to our future as highways were in the 20th Century. Like a highway, the Internet must remain free and open for all – not determined by the highest bidders.”

― Chuck Schumer

“Reclassification is the best way to for us to preserve the Internet as an unfettered tool for communication and the sharing of ideas.”

― Chuck Schumer

“I love the Internet, and I love wasting time on the Internet – even though it sometimes ends up being not being a waste of time.”

― Claire Cameron

“I’m very rigid about my schedule. I sit down at 8 A.M., and the Internet blocker goes on. My standard time is 120 minutes. I’m a compulsive writer, so it reminds me to stop writing… If I write more than that, I turn into an ogre for my kids.”

― Claire Cameron

“It’s really weird being placed into something like that because it was never an intention to make bedroom pop. I was just making music. All the people that have that genre placed on them are not the first people to have a home studio and and post it on the Internet.”

― Clairo

“I would not hesitate to say I was addicted to the Internet in the first two years. It can be addictive, and things not taken in moderation have negative effects. But the alarmism around ‘Facebook is changing our brains’ strikes me as a kind of historical trick. Because we now know from brain science that everything changes our brains.”

― Clay Shirky

“It is possible to think that the Internet will be a net positive for society while admitting that there are significant downsides – after all, it’s not a revolution if nobody loses.”

― Clay Shirky

“You used to have to own a radio tower or television tower or printing press. Now all you have to have is access to an Internet cafe or a public library, and you can put your thoughts out in public.”

― Clay Shirky

“The whole, ‘Is the Internet a good thing or a bad thing’? We’re done with that. It’s just a thing. How to maximise its civic value, its public good – that’s the really big challenge.”

― Clay Shirky

“India’s prosperity is sectioned by geography, such as in Bangalore, where the information technology industry is prominent. Because they have a conduit out of India, competing in the world by the Internet, it’s not regulated in corrupt ways, and it is very prosperous.”

― Clayton M. Christensen

“There are a lot of companies – not just Sony and Kodak – that have spent a lot of money trying to make the quality of the digital images comparable with film. But when you’re sending these things over the Internet, they don’t have to be high quality.”

― Clayton M. Christensen

“I think this is one reason why the Lord invented the Internet – so members can teach one another how to succeed in assignments the Lord has given us, and to give us opportunities to inspire and bear testimony in a horizontal way.”

― Clayton M. Christensen

“At the bottom, the elimination of spyware and the preservation of privacy for the consumer are critical goals if the Internet is to remain safe and reliable and credible.”

― Cliff Stearns

“The Internet is a telephone system that’s gotten uppity.”

― Clifford Stoll

“I don’t think the Internet has replaced cities in any significant way, nor really could it. Cities are dynamic – and deeply seductive for the people who flock there – because they broker all sorts of fantastic and useful connections, cultural and economic and social.”

― Clive Thompson

“The Internet lets thousands of total strangers collaborate to produce a truly hivelike result.”

― Clive Thompson

“The one complaint about the Internet that I wholeheartedly endorse is that most of these tools have been designed to peck at us like ducks: ‘Hey, there’s a new reply to your comment! Come look at it!’”

― Clive Thompson

“Tip-of-the-tongue syndrome is when people almost remember something but need a computer, or someone else, to help them find it. The problem is, our brains have always been terrible at remembering details. They were like that way before the Internet came along.”

― Clive Thompson

“Truly huge artistic collaboration on the Internet seems to work only if the gang has a well-defined objective.”

― Clive Thompson

“For me that’s what’s fascinating about the internet, that aggregate thing.”

― Colin Greenwood

“I’ve been able to find just as much interesting, exciting music through the Internet and iTunes… The personal interaction is not the same, and I’m not walking out of a store with a physical thing, so there’s definitely an element that is lost, for sure.”

― Colin Hanks

“The only reason I have any success at all in my career is because of the Internet.”

― Colleen Ballinger

“It’s been hard being on the Internet and not being respected by people in Hollywood.”

― Colleen Ballinger

“I want to tell Miranda’s story more broadly than what I have been in these five-minute videos on the Internet. She can live in a longer format.”

― Colleen Ballinger

“The thing about the Internet is we take everything too far. Once something becomes ‘popular’ in our realm, it’s everywhere, and I get sick of hearing about it quickly.”

― Connor Franta

“People think that you upload a video, and it goes viral, and then you’re a YouTube star, and I’m like, ‘Nah, no.’ In total, with all of the channels I’ve done, I’ve uploaded anywhere from 400 to 1,000 videos to the Internet, and each one of those takes a whole day to make.”

― Connor Franta

“I’ve had some good moments at karaoke. Back in the day, oh my gosh… before, I was more in the public eye. Nowadays, I don’t do it as much because if you do, it’s going to be on the Internet.”

― Craig Robinson

“I have a lot of things that people say about me on the Internet. I have bad things that I don’t want to remember now. It’s hard to delete.”

― Cris Cyborg

“The Internet has kind of allowed me to go to a virtual library whenever I want to find out something about something and not use one source but find multiple ways to research certain topics or subjects.”

― Curt Schilling

“I did the ‘Justice League’ thing the wrong way. I read too much on the Internet. You can’t do that. The Internet is the devil. Or the Internet is not the devil – the comment boards are the devil.”

― D. J. Cotrona

“I think the Internet is comparable to the Homestead Act: Here’s a parcel of land. Sign up, cultivate it, it’s yours.”

― Dan Abrams

“There are so many ways now that people contribute through the Internet. We vet all of our contributions, and when something doesn’t meet our requirements or a donation exceeds the amount that’s allowed by the law, we return it.”

― Dan Donovan

“Through the Internet, ISIS and other terrorist groups reach people they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to reach.”

― Dan Donovan

“Even if it was a difficult operation to copy a song, it only takes one person to do it. After that the spread of the song via the Internet or other means of propagation is only limited by the honesty of the users.”

“StockX’s live marketplace will harness the Internet’s natural ability to facilitate a better way to transact certain segments of ecommerce. We are going to bring the kind of trading platform and visibility to tangible products that financial and commodities markets have used for decades.”

― Dan Gilbert

“The Internet’s proven to be a pretty big deal for global society, and Bitcoin could basically be thought of as the Internet, applied to money.”

― Dan Kaminsky

“Personally, what scares me most is the thoughtlessness the Internet can perpetuate.”

― Dan Levy

“In many ways, the Internet is about diversification, and yet, in the wrong hands, the digital world can use those very examples to reinforce the narrowest of perspectives.”

― Dan Levy

“I have an almost religious zeal… not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me, the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature, linking up.”

― Dan Millman

“The Internet is a giant ‘lab experiment’ for corporate America, and those companies that recognise this and play well within the rules of ambiguity and fluidity will survive and win.”

― Dan Pena

“The Internet has allowed even more growth possible than in the bricks and mortar industries that I dealt with years ago. It is easier to get a business to a million dollars/pounds in revenue on the net! It is not easy! But it is easier when compared to construction, etc., though all businesses use the Internet to enhance marketing.”

― Dan Pena

“If Al Gore invented the Internet, I invented spell check.”

― Dan Quayle

“Before I became the president of AT&T’s consumer division, I was running strategy and our internet services, so I was the president of one of the first internet service providers, ISPs, AT&T Worldnet, and running our internet protocol product development as well. So I knew a lot about what was going on with the internet.”

― Dan Schulman

“I think that the world is going to remain a very interconnected place. I don’t think there’s any getting away from that. The Internet has brought us closer together. I think cross-border trade is going to continue to grow substantially. I think there may be certain trade agreements that can be renegotiated, one way or another.”

― Dan Schulman

“The digitisation of money, the rapid expansion of internet access and, of course, the adoption of mobile phones have created the perfect conditions to make it easier, secure, and affordable to save, spend, give, and borrow.”

― Dan Schulman

“When we started out in the U.K., there were songs that we made, we put them on the Internet, and we immediately started touring the U.K. We borrowed our friend’s mum’s car, and drove ourselves around for, like, a year playing gigs in pubs and tiny little venues. In that respect, we’re pretty grass roots as a band. We’ve done all that together.”

― Dan Smith

“There was no Internet, not even many cookbooks except the old reference books. So we would sit down at night, a group of six chefs, and we’d exchange recipes and each talk about how we were doing things. It was the only way to learn new ideas.”

― Daniel Boulud

“If it weren’t for the Internet, WWE probably wouldn’t even know my name. If I had to rely on ‘Pro Wrestling Illustrated’ to get my name out there, it would have been a much more difficult road.”

“I’m not opposed to comics on the Internet. It’s just not interesting to me.”

“Well, the future of the Internet is… Reality.”

― Daniel Keys Moran

“We need to blinker ourselves, to better monitor our attentional focus. Enforced periods of no email or Internet to allow us to sustain concentration have been shown to be tremendously helpful. And breaks – even a 15-minute break every two or three hours – make us more productive in the long run.”

― Daniel Levitin

“One big promise of the Internet was that it would be a great democratizing force, allowing us to become exposed to new ideas that we might not otherwise encounter in our town, workplace or social circle.”

― Daniel Levitin

“Mesh networking is an old idea. Oddly enough, the low-cost XO Laptop built by the ‘One Laptop Per Child’ organization – the so-called $100 laptop – was designed with built-in mesh networking. The idea with the XO machine was that many kids using those laptops would be out in rural areas without reliable Internet access.”

― Daniel Lyons

“What if people could use the Internet to create a new kind of money, one that didn’t involve governments and central banks and could be used anonymously, like cash?”

― Daniel Lyons

“Some people are using landline connections and dial-up modems to call ISPs in other countries and get onto the Internet. Still others are using satellite connections.”

― Daniel Lyons

“Since the beginning of the internet era, it has been pretty widely accepted that when you join an online service, whatever data you put into it belongs to you.”

― Daniel Lyons

“If we didn’t have Net neutrality, carriers could do things like penalize companies that use a lot of bandwidth or create high-speed lanes and charge Internet companies extra fees to send their stuff over them. That would give an advantage to big companies and make life harder for startups.”

― Daniel Lyons

“I have fun going on Twitter and the Internet. I feel safe and comfortable, and I wish everyone could feel that way.”

“I just moved into the world of Xbox Live. And I’ve discovered that everyone on the Internet is a lot better than me. I spent half an hour the other day designing a boxer, and I got knocked out twice in the first round.”

― Daniel Radcliffe

“I use the Internet for what it’s for: to learn.”

“It’s pretty shocking that the guys in Europe who cover traditional media will cover Google, whereas in the U.S., there are five different equity analysts that will cover the internet universe.”

“The Internet carries the flag of being subversive and possibly rebellious and chaotic, nihilistic.”

― David Bowie

“For me, influences really come from everywhere: literature, comics, movies, anime, Internet, science, real-life situations. In fact, I think that writing is just about living.”

― David Cage

“Consumers have zero time for products that are not simple, intuitive, and attractive to use. This is especially true with Internet products, where clean and useful design is a prerequisite to keeping anyone on your site for more than 30 seconds.”

― David Cohen

“The Internet is full of choices, and nobody is going to make the choice to use a product that is hard to use or unattractive.”

― David Cohen

“Of course for many years directors have had to go on the road with their movies and promote them and I’ve done that since the beginning. So that’s not new but the forms of it are different such as with the internet.”

― David Cronenberg

“Spellings are made by people. Dictionaries eventually reflect popular choices. And the Internet is allowing more people to influence spelling than ever before.”

― David Crystal

“The main effect of the Internet on language has been to increase the expressive richness of language, providing the language with a new set of communicative dimensions that haven’t existed in the past.”

― David Crystal

“Language itself changes slowly, but the Internet has speeded up the process of those changes so you notice them more quickly.”

― David Crystal

“The Internet has given us 10 or 15 new styles of communication: long messages like blogging, and then short messages like texting and tweeting. I see it all as part of an expanding array of linguistic possibilities.”

― David Crystal

“What turns teenagers on more than the Internet these days? If you can get a language out there, the youngsters are much more likely to think it’s cool.”

― David Crystal

“The Internet offers endangered languages a chance to have a public voice in a way that would not have been possible before.”

― David Crystal

“When we look at the specific effect of the Internet on language, languages asking the question, ‘Has English become a different language as a result of the Internet?’ the answer has to be no.”

― David Crystal

“One of the places the full stop is really being revised in a really fundamental way is on the Internet. You look at the Internet or any instant messaging exchange – anything that is a fast dialogue taking place. People simply do not put full stops in unless they want to make a point.”

― David Crystal

“Online, you show how brilliant you are by manipulating the language of the Internet.”

― David Crystal

“The one thing about internet language, people join it, and what quickly evolves is an ‘internet dialect,’ as it were.”

― David Crystal

“It’s very difficult to find even one or two criteria that you will find in every Internet situation, and the reason is that the technology constrains language in individual ways.”

― David Crystal

“People said, ‘MySpace is going to rule and dominate all Internet; all young people will live on MySpace.’ Well, along comes Facebook. And, obviously, all the innovation that Apple is doing.”

― David Drummond

“In this age of media and Internet access, we are much more talkative than ever before.”

― David Duchovny

“Flame mails and offensive Internet activities are not classy. It doesn’t fit with our culture here, where we respect the gender, race, opinions, ear-lobe apparel and choice of clothing of all employees.”

― David Duffield

“The Internet is not nearly as fail-safe as the phone system.”

― David Filo

“What’s interesting about the shift from an industrial age to a technological age is that we keep inventing new media: movies, records, radio, television, the Internet, and now ebooks – and one of the things that’s most interesting about the invention of a new medium is watching it reinvent itself as it penetrates the culture.”

― David Gerrold

“I think we built the right future. If it’s a choice between the flying car or the Internet, tablets and smartphones, I’ll take what we’ve got.”

― David Gerrold

“When the Internet came along, at first it was just a medium for moving text around – books first, then pictures, finally video. Each time the bandwidth expanded, so did the capabilities of the medium, and each time it happened, the Internet cannibalized preexisting formats. And each time, those formats had to adapt. Or die.”

― David Gerrold

“Kids listen to everything on the Internet.”

― David Guetta

“Even when I make mistakes and people exploit my mistakes on television or on the Internet, and they use it to make fun of me, it’s just kind of working in my favor at the end. It’s really strange.”

― David Hasselhoff

“The age of the rock star ended with the passing of physical product, the rise of automated percussion, the domination of the committee approach to hit-making, the widespread adoption of choreography, and, above all, the advent of the mystique-destroying Internet.”

― David Hepworth

“Yes, the disruption of the Internet can be blamed for the destruction of the business model that once made journalism a thriving, well-paying enterprise, but it has also created an array of new tools for reporting. Somebody will eventually figure out how to make online newspapers profitable – I hope.”

― David Horsey

“Real security will come when it’s a moneymaker for private companies who want to satisfy public demand for an Internet that isn’t crawling with bugs.”

― David Ignatius

“I do think that one of the best effects the Internet has had on music is that it’s allowed these false walls between different music communities to vaporize. We can see that this is a big, complex, interconnected web.”

― David Longstreth

“Everyone is on the internet but they’re not all talking with each other. There are groups upon groups out there, but they don’t talk to one another. So while the internet brings everyone into a shared space, it does not necessarily bring them together.”

― David Lynch

“Information design has been around since the 1970s. Pioneers like Yale University design guru Edward Tufte and design agency Pentagram have long known and used its power. But now with the rise of the Internet, it’s having something of a second birth.”

― David McCandless

“There is some risk that if the wrong regulatory regime gets adopted in the U.S., then the center of innovation could move to other countries. If blockchains are the next Internet, that would be a very unfortunate development for the U.S.”

― David O. Sacks

“Cloud Gaming means that the game doesn’t need to be downloaded and run on your computer; it literally means the game runs out on the Internet, in the cloud, with the experience being streamed to the players.”

― David Perry

“Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters – all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing.”

― David Petraeus

“Ambient Devices is what I call part of the Third Wave of Internet devices.”

― David Rose

“I like having a paperback original. And until literature catches up with the culture – the violence, language, syntax, compression, concision, complexity and diversity that the Internet offers – books still make sense.”

― David Shields

“One of the things I like about the Internet is it does force us to realize we’re all humans, and it forces us to look at the pattern of people, not one moment.”

― David Sze

“I think there is a difference between Slate and Salon. I think we both serve important functions on the Internet. As more and more Websites disappear, I’m thankful Slate is still around because it makes things less lonely.”

― David Talbot

“The beauty of the Internet is that there’s no space limit.”

― David Tang

“We didn’t need the Internet for Nazi Germany to happen. But I feel like there’s this lack of humanity because of it.”

― David Thewlis

“The world is enormously dangerous and scary. I worry very much for my daughter. I’m not sure we’re in control any more, and I think the Internet is partly responsible for that.”

― David Thewlis

“With DNS, it’s possible to control key components of Internet navigation. Google already controls search, they are quickly gaining market share to control the browser, and when you put in DNS, it becomes the trifecta of complete navigational control.”

― David Ulevitch

“The way that worms and viruses spread on the Internet is not that different from the way they spread in the real world, and the way you quarantine them is not that different, either.”

― David Ulevitch

“I think anything which promotes heterogeneity on the Internet promotes stability. Diversity in services, service providers, and separating the layers of the networking stack are all important.”

― David Ulevitch

“One of my bosses happened to be one of the early architects of some of the ways Internet providers work. He taught me how the cables connect, how the telecom providers work… I learned how to make my own Ethernet cables, all the way up to running a small business.”

― David Ulevitch

“DNS is kind of the hamster under the hood that drives the Internet.”

― David Ulevitch

“I grew up in Del Mar, Calif., north of San Diego. I got my first job the summer after eighth grade at a small Internet service provider.”

― David Ulevitch

“TV has lost a lot of its self-confidence as its power has been eroded by the internet.”

― David Walliams

“With the new medium of knowledge – the Internet – knowledge not only takes on properties of that medium but also lives at the level of the network.”

― David Weinberger

“Every embarrassing moment is going to be shown on the Internet, whether the candidate likes it or not. The ones that can’t deal with that are going to fail.”

― David Weinberger

“A final word: I am not knowledgeable about the internet. I do not have a computer. I guess that at 74 years of age, I don’t have the patience to learn.”

― David Wilkerson

“I know a lot of people in the retirement village that I have a house in in Florida that are on the Internet and are reading the paper on the Internet, and they’re communicating on the Internet.”

― Davy Jones

“I probably don’t have any more of a bigger following on the Internet than anybody else does – I just probably have a stranger one.”

― Dean Ambrose

“Whether it’s by helping us search for health-related information, connecting us with doctors through online portals, or enabling us to store and retrieve our medical records online, the Internet is starting to show the promise it has to transform the way people interact with and improve their own health and wellness.”

― Dean Ornish

“The power of the Internet is also its limitation – it provides access to large amounts of information without providing guidance on how to sort out what is credible and what is not.”

― Dean Ornish

“Agriculture looks different today – our farmers are using GPS and you can monitor your irrigation systems over the Internet.”

― Debbie Stabenow

“Exponential growth in access to the Internet, satellite television and radio, cell phones, and P.D.A.’s means that breaking news now reaches virtually every corner of the globe.”

― Dee Dee Myers

“I have an Internet radio show where people can call in for healing.”

― Dee Wallace

“It feels like every day or two, people on Twitter and the Internet are outraged about something.”

― Demetri Martin

“It’s a grave mistake in publishing, whether you’re talking about Internet or print publication, to try to play to a limited repertoire of established reader interests.”

― Denis Dutton

“I’m coming from a small town in Quebec where, at that time, there was no Internet, and the way to be in contact with movies were those American fan magazines like ‘Fantastic Films’ and ‘Starlog,’ and I still remember the shock, the impact of seeing the first frames, the first pictures coming out of ‘Blade Runner.’”

― Denis Villeneuve

“Through the Internet of things, ‘connected kitchens’ will alert consumers if they’re running low on broth and when their salad dressing needs to be replenished.”

― Denise Morrison

“The Internet’s been so great, and it’s so nice to have fans do nice, elaborate websites, but I think the downside is some of the things… for real fans to go on and see that 90 percent of the information isn’t true or to see pictures that aren’t really me.”

― Denise Richards

“I use Facebook all the time. I’m not a believer that they’re going to do everything on the Internet better than anyone else.”

― Dennis Crowley

“Human beings are human beings. They say what they want, don’t they? They used to say it across the fence while they were hanging wash. Now they just say it on the Internet.”

― Dennis Miller

“I began writing ‘Outlander’ in 1988, so the Internet as we now know it didn’t exist.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“The Internet has improved a lot in the last few years, but still, you wouldn’t want to depend on Web sources for historical analysis. There’s just something hard to beat about a book.”

― Diana Gabaldon

“Really think about the way you interact with people, whether it’s in person or on the Internet. You have to be very mindful.”

― Diana Silvers

“We ogle plants and animals up close on television, the Internet and in the movies. We may not worship the animals we see, but we still regard them as necessary physical and spiritual companions. Technological nature can’t completely satisfy that yearning.”

― Diane Ackerman

“In 1998, there was no social media. People were barely on the Internet. So I had no input from fans at all. Zero.”

― Diane English

“Rogue internet pharmacies continue to pose a serious threat to the health and safety of Americans. Simply put, a few unethical physicians and pharmacists have become drug suppliers to a nation.”

― Dianne Feinstein

“What launched me toward Feedburner? Well, the Internet happened. When I saw Mosaic, I thought, ‘I gotta do this.’ I founded and sold a few companies. Feedburner was my fourth.”

― Dick Costolo

“Eventually I foresee voting on the Internet, which will lead to much more direct democracy.”

― Dick Gephardt

“There are other options out there, after all, like read a book, go on the Internet, rent a movie.”

― Dick Wolf

“To realize the incredible potential of connected cars and autonomous driving, we must continue to forge innovative global partnerships that engage everyone from automakers and Internet of Things players to government and educational institutions.”

― Dinesh Paliwal

“If I’m naughty, I’m grounded for two weeks or Mum takes my phone and my laptop because she knows I can’t live without them. Sometimes I’ll say, ‘Mum, do you just want to take my laptop?’ because I can still use the Internet on my phone. But now she’s going to read this and see what I’ve been doing.”

― Dionne Bromfield

“I like having my cellphone. I like the Internet. I like being different.”

― Dita Von Teese

“When I started performing, there was no Internet; I didn’t really have anything to copy. I kind of had to just make up what I thought burlesque was, based on photographs of Sally Rand or whatever.”

― Dita Von Teese

“The Internet is a global resource that does not belong to any one nation or alliance. It has contributed to amazing economic growth, collaboration, civil education, and awe-inspiring lifestyle improvements for billions of people.”

― Dmitri Alperovitch

“The inexorable rise of the Internet and the citizen journalist presents us all with challenges for the future.”

― Dominic Grieve

“Just as the Internet drops transaction and collaboration costs in business and government, it also drops the cost of dissent, of rebellion, and even insurrection.”

― Don Tapscott

“Before there was an Internet, before there was an A.O.L., the circulation of newspapers was going down.”

― Donald E. Graham

“I currently use Ubuntu Linux, on a standalone laptop – it has no Internet connection. I occasionally carry flash memory drives between this machine and the Macs that I use for network surfing and graphics; but I trust my family jewels only to Linux.”

― Donald Knuth

“The Internet has leveled the investment playing field.”

― Donald Luskin

“Oh my goodness gracious, what you can buy off the Internet in terms of overhead photography. A trained ape can know an awful lot of what is going on in this world, just by punching on his mouse, for a relatively modest cost.”

― Donald Rumsfeld

“In a wristwatch, imagine the battery is in the strap and there’s a medical sensor in there connected to the internet. If someone is monitoring that, they could phone up if the user has forgotten to take some medication. This could save hundreds of dollars in medical fees later. What’s missing? It’s a stable battery.”

― Donald Sadoway

“We have to go see Bill Gates and a lot of different people that really understand what’s happening. We have to talk to them, maybe in certain areas, closing that Internet up in some way. Somebody will say, ‘Oh, freedom of speech, freedom of speech.’ These are foolish people. We have a lot of foolish people.”

― Donald Trump

“With the Internet, kids today learn things quicker than we do and they have everything there is to see, so you have to do more than just remake some old ’70s film.”

― Donnie Wahlberg

“I don’t have a favorite medium; I was brought up on TV. so I am clearly of the TV generation, but it depends on what you are trying to sell; sometimes a fully integrated solution, sometimes a pure Internet solution, sometimes a pure billboard solution.”

― Donny Deutsch

“Cyber terrorism could also become more attractive as the real and virtual worlds become more closely coupled, with automobiles, appliances, and other devices attached to the Internet.”

― Dorothy Denning

“The Internet has done nothing but good for comedy all around. Comedians no longer have to rely on TV execs and club owners deciding if they are funny or not.”

― Doug Stanhope

“One of the most important things you learn from the Internet is that there is no ‘them’ out there. It’s just an awful lot of ‘us.’”

― Douglas Adams

“I don’t think anybody would argue now that the Internet isn’t becoming a major factor in our lives. However, it’s very new to us. Newsreaders still feel it is worth a special and rather worrying mention if, for instance, a crime was planned by people ‘over the Internet.’”

― Douglas Adams

“This Network Generation have grown up in a connected world. With Skype, Facebook, Twitter and the Internet, the world is at their fingertips via their smart phone. They find the idea of watching TV programmes at a time to suit the broadcaster quaint and old-fashioned.”

― Douglas Alexander

“Having disrupted business practices, social interactions and political campaigns, 2011 will be seen as the year that the rise of the Internet first disrupted foreign relations.”

― Douglas Alexander

“As a form of escapism, yearning for the 20th century is understandable, but in practice it would be horrible – sort of like going on a holiday promising yourself you could go without the Internet, only to crumble and walk in a daze to the local Internet cafe to gorge on connectivity.”

― Douglas Coupland

“Soon it won’t be the Internet any more, it’ll just be like air, like somehow they’ll integrate the Internet into the air. And God’s name will have ended up being ‘Google,’ because that’s the way it worked out. It could have worked out that God’s name ended up being ‘Yahoo,’ of course, but they lost out.”

― Douglas Coupland

“The Internet has destroyed irony in the world, or at least wounded it considerably. What are we to do about an invention whose end result is that starving people in China are looking up things on marthastewart.com?”

― Douglas Coupland

“Open source is a beautiful way of collaborating; but what’s happening on the free Internet is more akin to the ‘crowdsourcing’ of journalists and other content creators by advertisers who no longer have to pay them – only the search engines that parse their articles.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“The liberation children experience when they discover the Internet is quickly counteracted by the lure of e-commerce web sites, which are customized to each individual user’s psychological profile in order to maximize their effectiveness.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“While we may blame the Internet for the ease with which conspiracy theories proliferate, the net is really much more culpable for the way it connects everything to almost everything else. The hypertext link, as we used to call it, allows any fact or idea to become intimately connected with any other.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Since the dawn of the Internet, I have always operated under the assumption that if the government or corporations have technological capability to do something, they are doing it – whatever the laws we happen to know about might say.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“Like most early enthusiasts, I always thought the way the Internet encouraged multitasking made users less vulnerable to manipulation, while simultaneously exploiting even more of our brain’s capacity than before. Apparently not.”

― Douglas Rushkoff

“When I was younger, I barely left my room because I was busy watching clips of my favorite actors and performers on the Internet.”

― Dove Cameron

“Internet does not equal sodium pentothal.”

― Drew Barrymore

“I’m not really sure what I’d like to see people doing more of online, but what I’d like to see less of is the warning signs that not ratifying net neutrality is gonna cause two separate nets: one that the big dogs can afford to be on and the other a ghetto internet that no one goes on. Think FM vs AM radio, or cable vs broadcast TV.”

― Drew Curtis

“If I see anything remotely like a telcom-run faster internet that you have to pay more to get preferential traffic on, I’m out folks. I’ve seen this story before, I ran an ISP back in the late 90s.”

― Drew Curtis

“On the Internet, news is consumed a la carte. If someone shows up on the main page of a website and doesn’t see anything of interest, they leave. This negatively impacts ad revenues. The solution on the Internet is to pack news websites full of things that will draw people in, regardless of whether they are news or not.”

― Drew Curtis

“With something like Dropbox, it was immediately like, ‘Wow, this is literally something that anyone with an Internet connection could use.’ Everyone needs something like this; they just don’t realize it yet.”

― Drew Houston

“Turn off the TV, turn off the Internet, just go out, and I bet you your life will get better really quick.”

― Duff McKagan

“Lil B opened up the floodgates for Odd Future, and now rap has a huge Internet culture.”

― Earl Sweatshirt

“One day I hope to not have a Twitter, to be sick enough that I don’t have to use the Internet.”

― Earl Sweatshirt

“I wish I wasn’t so in love, wasn’t so interested, in the Internet. I wish I spent less time online and more time outside and in my head. Writing requires solitude and deep, deep daydreaming, and the Internet just kills that – its lure is toward the external; it asks you to flit from place to place.”

― Edan Lepucki

“I stopped doing standup because it stopped being fun. And the reason it stopped being fun was it was harder to write – and this was before the Internet – it was harder to write new stuff. It had gotten so crazy.”

― Eddie Murphy

“When I was growing up, I had three channels, and I didn’t know what happened in the Philippines instantly if it happened. Now you can be on the Internet and find out what’s going on in Zimbabwe. It’s changed.”

― Edge

“The Internet’s impact is immense. My students can’t imagine ever paying for a book.”

― Edmund White

“I am investing like a crazy person, mostly in internet start-ups. And I want to invest in Brazil as well, because I am Brazilian and that’s in my heart.”

― Eduardo Saverin

“The United States ran the table on Internet innovations, creating companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Intel, Apple, Cisco, Twitter, Amazon, eBay, YouTube, and others. Europe and Japan scarcely contributed.”

― Edward Conard

“There’s a danger in the internet and social media. The notion that information is enough, that more and more information is enough, that you don’t have to think, you just have to get more information – gets very dangerous.”

― Edward de Bono

“I’ve always been very fascinated by technology – the Internet, social media.”

― Edward Enninful

“The secret of the Internet’s success has been its openness to new services.”

― Edward Felten

“The question is not whether we want to keep this open, neutral Internet – we do, or should – but whether government rulemaking can give us the result we want.”

― Edward Felten

“The next generation of innovators, who need neutrality the most, are not at the bargaining table. They’re hard at work in their labs or classrooms, dreaming of the next big thing, and hoping that the Internet is as open to them as it was to the founders of Google.”

― Edward Felten

“Happily, researchphilia is not the problem it once was. The Internet makes just-in-time research very practical.”

― Edward M. Lerner

“You could watch entire villages and see what everyone was doing. I watched NSA tracking people’s Internet activities as they typed. I became aware of just how invasive U.S. surveillance capabilities had become. I realized the true breadth of this system. And almost nobody knew it was happening.”

― Edward Snowden

“That’s the beauty of the Internet is that we’re no longer tied to our communities by physical connections.”

― Edward Snowden

“The public interest is not always the same as the national interest. Going to war with people who are not our enemy in places that are not a threat doesn’t make us safe, and that applies whether it’s in Iraq or on the Internet. The Internet is not the enemy. Our economy is not the enemy.”

― Edward Snowden

“AT&T will not block access to the public Internet or degrade service, period.”

― Edward Whitacre, Jr.

“More and more people are able to access information – thank goodness we have the Internet and if you are interested you can find things. Which is different than even 20 years ago.”

― Edwidge Danticat

“I find the Internet to be the most wonderful thing there is. It connects people. Everyone can have input.”

― Elfriede Jelinek

“It’s a wonderfully democratic method, publishing a text on the Internet.”

― Elfriede Jelinek

“Internet is exemplary for me. I do not want to have the feeling of writing ‘for eternity,’ so to speak. The fleetingness of the Internet has therefore become very attractive to me.”

― Elfriede Jelinek

“We thought that the Internet was going to connect us all together. As a young geek in rural Maine, I got excited about the Internet because it seemed that I could be connected to the world. What it’s looking like increasingly is that the Web is connecting us back to ourselves.”

― Eli Pariser

“The important thing to remember with the Internet is that there are large companies that have an interest in controlling how information flows in it. They’re very effective at lobbying Congress, and that pattern has locked down other communication media in the past. And it will happen again unless we do something about it.”

― Eli Pariser

“I don’t care where I live, so long as there’s a roof to keep the rain off my books, and high-speed Internet access.”

― Eliezer Yudkowsky

“There is a lot of pseudo-science and nonsense out there on the Internet, and everyone feels the need to send it to me. And I’m sitting there thinking, ‘It isn’t real! Stop it!’”

― Elise Andrew

“My older brother always tells me I changed as a person when I saw ‘Ace Ventura.’ Because when I saw ‘Ace Ventura’, I became obsessed. I watched the movie as many times as I had to – back then, you couldn’t go on the Internet and find the script – so I watched it as many times as I could to write my own script of ‘Ace Ventura.’”

― Eliza Coupe

“I’m a higgledy-piggledy person in every way. On days that I work, I work for eight hours in a row, with my internet access entirely turned off, locked in my office.”

― Elizabeth McCracken

“First, I used some of my own experiences and observations from attending a public high school. Secondly, I joined in some Internet chat rooms for gays and lesbians.”

― Ellen Muth

“I fear for the world the Internet is creating.”

― Ellen Ullman

“Internet voting is surely coming. Though online ballots cannot be made secure, though the problems of voter authentication and privacy will remain unsolvable, I suspect we’ll go ahead and do it anyway.”

― Ellen Ullman

“Times change. Cable news and the Internet alone have transformed the way outreach to the American people can be accomplished.”

― Elliott Abrams

“I don’t have any of the modern electronics at all. I know the Internet would be a distraction. I would see things that interested me and never get back to writing.”

― Elmore Leonard

“I think most of the important stuff on the Internet has been built. There will be continued innovation, for sure, but the great problems of the Internet have essentially been solved.”

― Elon Musk

“The Internet is overrated. It’s much smaller an innovation than people think it is. I don’t think it’s changed the way anybody makes music.”

― Elvis Costello

“My rule is never to look at anything on the Internet.”

― Emilia Clarke

“I’ve been reading a lot about what the Internet does to our brains.”

― Emily Berrington

“Certainly I’m not going to sit on the Internet all day and read what Sam from Iowa is saying about me. But I’m a sponge. I’ve always been a sponge.”

― Eminem

“Reading about what a digital native thinks of the Internet is like reading about what it’s like to blink: it’s kind of boring.”

― Emma Healey

“I spent a lot of time researching dementia, read papers on the subject, and also found a lot of dementia diaries on the Internet which were a great help in getting an insight into the disease.”

― Emma Healey

“Given the growing popularity of pop culture conventions, many of them are selling out, leaving a lot of fans out in the dark and having to trawl the Internet for bits and pieces of news that relate to these events.”

― Emmett Shear

“Trends in circulation and advertising – the rise of the Internet, which has made the daily newspaper look slow and unresponsive; the advent of Craigslist, which is wiping out classified advertising-have created a palpable sense of doom.”

― Eric Alterman

“To own the dominant, or only, newspaper in a mid-sized American city was, for many decades, a kind of license to print money. In the Internet age, however, no one has figured out how to rescue the newspaper in the United States or abroad.”

― Eric Alterman

“I started getting into Internet technologies and computers. I wasn’t especially interested in being a musician, but I wound up finding my way back to being interested in music through computers.”

― Eric Avery

“One of the wonderful things about Internet is it’s like a salon. It brings people together from different intellectual walks of life.”

― Eric Kandel

“Any business that is looking for new customers needs to understand the Internet and how to market their goods or services through it.”

― Eric Lefkofsky

“A critical factor in its success was that the X developers were willing to give the sources away for free in accordance with the hacker ethic, and able to distribute them over the Internet.”

― Eric S. Raymond

“For the first time, individual hackers could afford to have home machines comparable in power and storage capacity to the minicomputers of ten years earlier – Unix engines capable of supporting a full development environment and talking to the Internet.”

― Eric S. Raymond

“Linux evolved in a completely different way. From nearly the beginning, it was rather casually hacked on by huge numbers of volunteers coordinating only through the Internet.”

― Eric S. Raymond

“There’s nothing that cannot be found through some search engine or on the Internet somewhere.”

― Eric Schmidt

“The Internet is the first thing that humanity has built that humanity doesn’t understand, the largest experiment in anarchy that we have ever had.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Google docs and spreadsheets don’t work if you’re on an airplane. But it’s a technical problem that is going to get solved. Eventually you will be able to work on a plane as if you are connected and, then when you get reconnected to the Internet, your computer will just synchronize with the cloud.”

― Eric Schmidt

“The Internet is really about highly specialized information, highly specialized targeting.”

― Eric Schmidt

“When the Internet publicity began, I remember being struck by how much the world was not the way we thought it was, that there was infinite variation in how people viewed the world.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Google is more than a business. Google is a belief system. And we believe passionately in the open Internet model.”

― Eric Schmidt

“The core problem is that the world is full of people who would like to take 99 per cent of the information that’s on the Internet, and eliminate 1 per cent. Everyone has their own thing they don’t like.”

― Eric Schmidt

“In whatever number of years I have on Earth, I think that promoting the values of free expression, the openness of the Internet, that’s the best use of my time.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Countries that have the Internet already are not going to turn it off. And so the power of freedom, the power of ideas will spread, and it will change those societies in very dramatic ways.”

― Eric Schmidt

“People who bet against the Internet, who think that somehow this change is just a generational shift, miss that it is a fundamental reorganizing of the power of the end user. The Internet brings tremendous tools to the end user, and that end user is going to use them.”

― Eric Schmidt

“Even though Google may do very well, there will always be an alternative to what Google is doing, and people will always have the free choice… because there’s no way for us to prevent them from exercising that choice. That is one of the key aspects of why the Internet has been so successful. No technologies can dominate.”

― Eric Schmidt

“It’s very difficult for governments to dominate the Internet because it’s so difficult to control. People want to be free. People want to hear multiple voices. They want to make their own decisions. And people who see things will report things.”

― Eric Schmidt

“I think it’s pretty clear that the Internet as a whole has not had a strong notion of identity. And identity means, ‘Who am I?’ Fundamentally, what Facebook has done has built a way to figure out who people are.”

― Eric Schmidt

“The 2006 federal Internet gaming statute is not ambiguous. It does not prohibit gambling on fantasy sports.”

― Eric Schneiderman

“I think having a national system that tracks who owns guns is fine. I don’t think we need to be printing it on the Internet.”

― Eric Swalwell

“For me, the virtual choir has taught me that, if anything, the Internet builds these post-national tribes, people finding each other anyway they can.”

― Eric Whitacre

“I happen to be one of the people who believe that the Internet is a force of good, and I’m very optimistic about it.”

― Eric Whitacre

“When I first started doing work on how the Internet is affecting commerce, like a lot of people, I was really excited by this nearly perfect market.”

― Erik Brynjolfsson

“My new passion is to get Internet education mandated in all schools. We’ve got to start teaching our kids how to be safe in the 40,000 plus chat rooms that are out there. Because they’re being had. These sexual predators groom the kids. I know, I’ve arrested enough of them.”

― Erik Estrada

“I think there’s been a major shift in grass roots media because of the Internet and because the geeks and nerds rule the world. They are in control in so many ways.”

― Erin Gray

“You can limit the number of invitations to an in-person fashion show, but you can’t police the Internet.”

― Erin McKean

“I think it’s a bit silly to brand the Internet as the ‘downfall of youth.’”

― Ernest Cline

“The Cube is approximately – it’s around the same age as the Internet, and in that time, we had no personal computers yet.”

― Erno Rubik

“I’ve been writing a lot more, I believe, because of the Internet. I’ve been posting stuff that I’ve written and I’ve just been writing.”

― Errol Morris

“I don’t watch TV, I don’t spend time on the Internet, and I don’t party much. I don’t text very much, either.”

― Esperanza Spalding

“I became the research department for a firm on Wall Street and eventually started working on the newsletter ‘Release 1.0,’ which I ran for 25 years. That was how I learned all about PCs and the Internet.”

― Esther Dyson

“The Internet is changing American fiction – and I don’t mean in some kind of metaphysical way.”

― Ethan Canin

“The Internet challenges traditional ways of distributing and processing information and so encourages new standards and behavior.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“Reading the text of my blog itself is not really the interesting part. The exciting part is how the Internet allows me to be the eyes and ears for the people sending me postings from Africa.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“The Internet has become a bunch of interlinked but linguistically distinct and culturally specific spaces. There’s some interface between them, but there’s a lot less than there was years back when we were sort of pretending that this was one great global space.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“The Internet has not become the great leveller that it was once thought it could be.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“On the Internet, information from Indiana and India is equally cheap and easy to access.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“Reddit, which calls itself ‘The Front Page of the Internet,’ is more influential in shaping Internet culture than its comparatively small reach would lead you to believe.”

― Ethan Zuckerman

“The Internet has been a great outlet for storytelling. After all, there are web-based shows that have started online and have then gotten picked up. I think it’s a great opportunity for artists to get through the network roadblock. It just allows us another venue to be creative in.”

― Eva LaRue

“The absolute base-level thing that you do as a new screenwriter is send out query letters. Literally, you just say, ‘Hi, Mr. So-and-So,’ and you give them a one-sentence description of one of your scripts. You send it out to a list of people you found on the Internet.”

― Evan Daugherty

“The hardcore fanbase of nerds that live on the Internet are not nearly as powerful as I thought they were. They really, really aren’t. They also flip-flop like mad.”

― Evan Goldberg

“I actually barely ever go on the Internet.”

― Evan Goldberg

“I’m not an Internet person that reads behind-the-scenes stuff. I see a trailer, and if it looks good, then I go. That’s that.”

― Evan Goldberg

“Disclosure and transparency are the currency of the Internet, and they are at odds with authoritarianism.”

― Evan Osnos

“It seems odd that at the beginning of the Internet, everyone decided everything should stick around forever.”

― Evan Spiegel

“Creating a representation of yourself for the Internet stopped making sense when we were all on phones and connected everywhere.”

― Evan Spiegel

“There’s something about just hanging around when it comes to success on the Internet.”

― Evan Williams

“If you look at the Internet, the vast majority of start-ups are not successful. But the ones that are, are very very successful. So you can’t point to the unsuccessful ones and say, ‘There’s no hope for this field.’ It’s just that they had the wrong idea or they had bad execution.”

― Evan Williams

“What the Internet is great at is building networks.”

― Evan Williams

“Every major communication tool on the Internet has spam and abuse problems. All email services, blogging services and social networks have to dedicate a significant amount of resources and time to fighting abuse and protecting their users.”

― Evan Williams

“There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The Internet can empower groups whose aims are in fact antithetical to democracy.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The idea that the Internet favors the oppressed rather than the oppressor is marred by what I call cyber-utopianism: a naive belief in the emancipatory nature of online communication that rests on a stubborn refusal to admit its downside.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“It is true that authoritarian governments increasingly see the Internet as a threat in part because they see the U.S. government behind the Internet.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“For many oppositional movements, the Internet, while providing the opportunity to distribute information more quickly and cheaper, may have actually made their struggle more difficult in the long run.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The Internet has made it much more effective and cheaper to spread propaganda.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“I want to prevent us reifying ‘the Internet’ as something to be preserved like some people want to preserve the American Constitution as it was written.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“This is the real tragedy of America’s ‘Internet freedom agenda’: It’s going to be the dissidents in China and Iran who will pay for the hypocrisy that drove it from the very beginning.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“There is something almost sacred about the Internet. I’m trying to secularize it.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“However revolutionary it may be, the Internet still hasn’t altered the basic law of human communication: Being nice to your interlocutors is a good way to start any negotiations, particularly, when being hostile is an open invitation for a cyber-fight.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“In China, Internet surveillance has already become a profitable industry. In fact, a growing number of private firms eagerly assist the local police by aggregating this data and presenting it in easy-to-browse formats, allowing humans to pursue more analytical tasks.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“As economic life relies more and more on the Internet, the potential for small bands of hackers to launch devastating attacks on the world economy is growing.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“North Korea aside, most authoritarian governments have already accepted the growth of the Internet culture as inevitable; they have little choice but to find ways to shape it in accord with their own narratives – or risk having their narratives shaped by others.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“To fully absorb the lessons of the Internet, urge the Internet-centrists, we need to reshape our political and social institutions in its image.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The implications are clear: Facebook wants to build an Internet where watching films, listening to music, reading books and even browsing is done not just openly but socially and collaboratively.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“My homeland of Belarus is an unlikely place for an Internet revolution. The country, controlled by authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko since 1994, was once described by Condoleezza Rice as ‘the last outpost of tyranny in Europe.’”

― Evgeny Morozov

“Contrary to the utopian rhetoric of social media enthusiasts, the Internet often makes the jump from deliberation to participation even more difficult, thwarting collective action under the heavy pressure of never-ending internal debate.”

― Evgeny Morozov

“The idea of changing and fixing the problem of how news is presented on the Internet has been recognized for a long time.”

― Ezra Klein

“I want to plug back into the hip-hop audience. Whether it be fans who grew up watching ‘Yo!’, or people who have become familiar with the culture via the Internet.”

― Fab Five Freddy

“The ‘Fake News Alert’ Chrome extension, created by ‘New York Magazine’ journalist Brian Feldman, identifies hoax news articles. However, cutting out fake news source entirely from operating is easier said than done, since anyone with internet access can create fake news.”

― Fabrizio Moreira

“There is enough of free-of-charge software available on the Net to ease building internet websites and contact pages, as well as implement email marketing campaigns.”

― Fabrizio Moreira

“I consider the pixel data in images and video to be the dark matter of the Internet.”

― Fei-Fei Li

“I get really scared about how the Internet is shifting and changing everyone’s minds, and the way we see ourselves and interact online. Everything is so diluted now.”

― Feist

“I’m very persistent; I know the Internet very well, because I grew up on the Internet. I had Internet when there was just dial-up, and the Internet was my social outlet.”

― Felicia Day

“Surprisingly, I think if you’re known on the Internet, you’re probably an introvert.”

― Felicia Day

“That’s what I love about the Internet. Even if it’s small-scale and you’re just posting on a forum, that’s an uncensored expression. That’s what I love.”

― Felicia Day

― Fiona Apple

“It’s weird: for someone who mostly really exists online, I’m actually not very interested in the Internet at all.”

― FKA twigs

― Florentijn Hofman

“I wanted to use the hippo to get people out of their homes, away from the Internet and the TV, and to explore London with a new perspective.”

― Florentijn Hofman

“The Internet makes it possible for everyone to collaborate.”

― Flying Lotus

“The Internet is part of our evolution. The mystics used to say, ‘We can travel across the planet in a thought.’ Now we really can. We can be connected with a million people at a time.”

“The Internet is an actual dumpster fire.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I think what’s been really awesome about the Internet is the ability to reach people from so many different walks of life and stages in their life.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“For a black activist, for an activist of all walks of life, the Internet has become this kind of meeting place where we can exchange ideas, where we can learn from each other, where we can get inspired about new ways that we can make changes within our own communities and own homes.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“The Internet is a blessing and a curse. I mean, it’s a place where lots of people can express themselves, which is amazing, but it’s a place where a lot of people can express themselves that probably should keep those expressions to themselves.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“Do not feed the trolls! Racist commenters usually troll the Internet looking for people of color to harass online. If you avoid responding, oftentimes they will get bored and move on.”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“I think that everyone on the Internet has to deal with people saying negative things. It can be tough!”

― Franchesca Ramsey

“The Internet is a wonderful thing, but it opens the door to many crimes, so you have to stay ahead of it.”

― Frank Abagnale

“The biggest thing that concerns me is when we start getting countries using cybercrime to shut down infrastructure, electricity, communications systems, the Internet, et cetera.”

― Frank Abagnale

“The Internet can be used to hurt many people.”

― Frank Abagnale

“It costs a lot of money to deliver newsprint. It’s so much easier to do it through the air, Internet, radio, television. The second easiest thing is to do it through the mail. But when you have to take something heavy and put it on someone’s doorstep, that costs a lot of money.”

― Frank Deford

“I think most things I read on the Internet and in newspapers are propaganda. Everyone from the ‘New York Times’ to Rupert Murdoch has a point of view and is putting forth their own propaganda. They’re stuck with the facts as they are, but the way they interpret and frame them is wildly different.”

― Frank Miller

“The Internet made fame wack and anonymity cool.”

― Frank Ocean

“The Internet is just another experiment showing us more sides of us.”

― Frank Ocean

“I don’t even know how people managed without the Internet years ago. Having to mail a cassette tape of your music to strangers over the course of months… I just can’t imagine having to do that.”

― Frankie Cosmos

“The greatest miracle of the Internet is that it exists – the second greatest is that it persists.”

― Franklin Foer

“The Internet was invented in an age when our entire approach to regulation has been extremely lax, and so you’d think, ‘OK, there might be a law on the books that governs how these corporations can handle our data.’”

― Franklin Foer

“Google helps us sort the Internet by providing a sense of hierarchy to information. Facebook uses its algorithms and its intricate understanding of our social circles to filter the news we encounter. Amazon bestrides book publishing with its overwhelming hold on that market.”

― Franklin Foer

“There’s huge access to information. If you need to learn something, you can go on the Internet and learn very quickly. You can reach across miles and miles to find companies that can assist you.”

― Fred DeLuca

“The Internet had a core innovation that made it valuable: The ability to disseminate data over a distributed network in a way that was significantly cheaper than the prior methods.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“Just as the Internet brought the cost of disseminating information down by an order of magnitude, bitcoin brings the cost of transferring ownership down by an order of magnitude.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“Bitcoin is valuable as a currency because of the economic efficiencies the bitcoin network is already creating as transactions flow over it. As with the Internet, more applications will flourish which will make the bitcoin network, and thus bitcoin as a currency, valuable.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“The Internet will continue to be valuable so long as it is the most efficient mechanism for transferring data. Bitcoin’s value is the same: It will remain as long as it is the most efficient mechanism for transferring ownership.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“At the end of the day, what’s going to make bitcoin successful is more people making more interesting things, just like the beginning of the Internet.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“As with early internet startups, some token models don’t make sense. For every 1 huge hit, there will be 3 minor successes and 100 failures, so we shouldn’t be surprised when some fail.”

― Fred Ehrsam

“My venture investing career has three phases, all roughly 6-8 years long. The first, at Euclid, was software to Internet. The second, at Flatiron, was Internet to bubble. And the third, at USV, has been web 2 to mobile. I have always used a new firm to denote a new investment phase for me. Throw away the old. Start with the new.”

― Fred Wilson

“Internet and mobile product development cycles are measured in months, not years. And the capital required to get a product built and into the market is less than $1 million. And the returns, when things work out, can be enormous.”

― Fred Wilson

“Most adults I know start their Internet session at Google, and most kids I know start their Internet session at either Facebook or MySpace.”

― Fred Wilson

“When there were not very many Internet companies, the supply of Internet companies to the market was small and the appetite for them was large. Therefore, if you were in the business of creating Internet companies in 1996-98, you had a market that provided massive demand for that.”

― Fred Wilson

“The Internet is a computing platform built on top of core technology. Applied technology is what gets built on top of that: It’s Web services.”

― Fred Wilson

“I study my competition for at least an hour a day. I get on the Internet, I look at what they doing, and then I look at ways to defeat them. I know their mixtapes track-by-track. I know some of their lyrics.”

― Freddie Gibbs

“The Internet offers authors and their readers a new diversity of opportunities and freedom.”

― Frederick Forsyth

“The biggest part of our business has always been moving things, not paper. With the Internet, people in Mississippi can buy things from Macedonia, without regard to time or place or quantity.”

― Frederick W. Smith

“Rumours are rumours. The Internet is going to report whatever they have to speculate on.”

― Future

“The Internet is changing what entertainment and sports is. It’s not just a few people authoring an experience for others. It’s really growing out of what everybody does.”

― Gabe Newell

“This is the moment when I should also admit that when the Internet first arrived I kept telling people it was a fad.”

― Gail Collins

“I’m interested in sites that help people find information and filter what’s available. The Internet is so big that no one can stay on top of everything.”

― Garrett Camp

“I like to say StumbleUpon provides a personal tour of the Internet. The responses are more targeted to your interests than they would be with a regular search engine. If you choose a topic on our site that you’re interested in, such as art, Web sites related to art appear, as if you’re leafing through an art magazine.”

― Garrett Camp

“Whatever you do needs to be sustainable over time, and taking the money in the short term and taking it in a bubble – like buying an Internet stock in 2000 – may not be sustainable.”

― Gary Bettman

“What’s true for churches is true for other institutions: the older and more organized they get, the less adaptable they become. That’s why the most resilient things in our world – biological life, stock markets, the Internet – are loosely organized.”

― Gary Hamel

“Privacy is not an option, and it shouldn’t be the price we accept for just getting on the Internet.”

― Gary Kovacs

“Flash content is the most prolific content on the web today; it is the way people express themselves on the Internet.”

― Gary Kovacs

“I don’t know why, but I’m continually amazed to think that two and a half billion of us around the world are connected to each other through the Internet and that at any point in time more than 30 percent of the world’s population can go online to learn, to create and to share.”

― Gary Kovacs

“’Harry Potter’ created a generation of readers in an era when kids could have disappeared into the depths of the Internet. That’s no small feat. Every book series owes J.K. Rowling a debt of gratitude.”

― Gary Ross

“Think of social media as the Internet. I can’t think of anyone betting against the Internet in 2012.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk

“I have Internet fame. Real fame is more intense.”

― Gary Vaynerchuk

“With ‘posts’ running in the millions, Internet message boards have become an essential part of the savvy investor’s arsenal.”

― Gary Weiss

“Despite all the drawbacks, the Internet provides a wide array of information – and some of it is being watched pretty carefully by the pros.”

― Gary Weiss

“The intersection of political analysis and Internet theory is a busy crossroad of cliche, where familiar rhetorical vehicles – decentralized authority, emergent leadership, empowered grass roots – create a ceaseless buzz.”

― Gary Wolf

“The problem of forgetting might not torment us so much if we could only convince ourselves that remembering isn’t important. Perhaps the things we learn – words, dates, formulas, historical and biographical details – don’t really matter. Facts can be looked up. That’s what the Internet is for.”

― Gary Wolf

“The Internet’s great promise is to make the world’s information universally accessible and useful.”

― Gary Wolf

“Even as the Internet has revived hope of a universal library and Google seems to promise an answer to every query, books have remained a dark region in the universe of information. We want books to be as accessible and searchable as the Web. On the other hand, we still want them to be books.”

― Gary Wolf

“The Internet is both great and terrible. As a source of information, a tool for delivering music and art, it’s great. But spamming ads and piracy of music is terrible. It’s stealing.”

― Gary Wright

“For ‘Boxers & Saints,’ I started by reading a couple of articles on the Internet, then writing a really rough outline, then getting more hardcore into the research. I went to a university library once a week for a year, year and a half.”

― Gene Luen Yang

“We’re afraid of writing characters different from ourselves because we’re afraid of getting it wrong. We’re afraid of what the Internet might say.”

― Gene Luen Yang

“As the Internet of things advances, the very notion of a clear dividing line between reality and virtual reality becomes blurred, sometimes in creative ways.”

― Geoff Mulgan

“What the Internet’s value is that you have access to information but you also have access to every lunatic that’s out there that wants to throw up a blog.”

― George A. Romero

“Sometimes it’s hard, when you start engaging with people on the Internet, to forget that, actually, we really don’t know one another… that’s something I need to learn a lot more.”

― George Blagden

“The hardest thing is trying not to correct everything on the Internet. It’d be night and day – wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong. So you just have to say, ‘All right, I’ll take it, bring it on.’”

― George Clooney

“The Internet has made us richer, freer, connected and informed in ways its founders could not have dreamt of. It has also become a vector of attack, espionage, crime and harm.”

― George Osborne

“The Internet – central to modern life – provides new ways for our enemies to plan and act against us.”

― George Osborne

“ISIL are already using the Internet for hideous propaganda purposes – for radicalisation, for operational planning, too.”

― George Osborne

“Britain helped create the Internet – Tim Berners Lee created the World Wide Web, one of a long line of British scientists who have given us an outsized role in shaping our own digital future.”

― George Osborne

“When I was born, the Internet was barely two years old. It was the preserve of academics, used to connect dozens rather than billions of users. There weren’t many who predicted it would transform our world.”

― George Osborne

“With work increasingly invisible, it’s much harder to grasp the human effects, the social contours, of the Internet economy.”

― George Packer

“In that prehistoric time, before the Internet, before information floated in the ozone, I was a soccer novice who had never heard of Socrates until somebody pointed him out – swarthy, shaggy, tall, slender, mysterious.”

― George Vecsey

“There is no Internet business in furniture or bedding. Zero – practically in the world.”

― Gerry Harvey

“If you are a manufacturer, an Internet company doesn’t suit you. An Internet company does not display your product; it can’t upsell. But we do a better job than any of the opposition.”

― Gerry Harvey

“The internet thing is what I have the greatest problem with. I don’t know if anyone in the media gets the internet thing and Harvey Norman. I think they have some strange interpretation of it that bears no resemblance to what actually happens.”

― Gerry Harvey

“People are out there saying we have to devalue our properties because of the Internet, but it hasn’t even come into play!”

― Gerry Harvey

“Some analysts think people come into our shops and then go and buy the product on the Internet, but the manufacturer knows if the customer can’t see the product and assess it, they won’t buy.”

― Gerry Harvey

“Mobile was Internet 2.0. It changed everything. Crypto is Internet 3.0.”

― Gil Penchina

“It is obvious that the Internet has become such a video-driven entity. With broadband becoming ubiquitous, viewers and advertisers are looking for professional-quality videos.”

― Gil Penchina

“It’s clear to me now that Ethereum is the new currency of the Internet. It’s way ahead of where Paypal was in its day, and it’s much more exciting to its customers than Paypal ever was.”

― Gil Penchina

“With the Internet, if you erase something it just means you have to spend another half-minute to find it.”

― Gilbert Gottfried

“We’re into this barrage of pop culture – you know, TV, movies, the Internet. We become creatures that we’ve made up, made of certain different flotsam from pop culture and certain different personas that are in style.”

“I found the Internet really fascinating.”

― Gillian Tans

“A long time ago, Prince said that no musician is ever gonna make money off the Internet, and he was right.”

― Glenn Danzig

“It is true that the Internet can be used to disseminate falsehoods quickly, but it just as quickly roots them out and exposes them in a way that the traditional model of journalism and its closed, insular, one-way form of communication could never do.”

― Glenn Greenwald

“When I was talking to strangers over the Internet in the 1990s, there would be a much more intense connection because they’re disembodied, so it’s just your brain and your soul interacting with this other person, and it just frees you up in this incredibly empowering way.”

― Glenn Greenwald

“The Internet has become my enabler. It keeps me from stillness and discomfort, and this keeps me from growing.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton

“The Internet is neither good nor bad. It’s neutral – it becomes for each of us exactly what we bring to it.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton

“Integrity means there is not a real-life you and an internet you. The two are one and the same. If you’re not kind on the Internet, you’re not kind.”

― Glennon Doyle Melton

“The Internet has been a blessing and a curse. The curse we know: A lot of people appropriating your intellectual property without paying for it. But I think it’s important to realize the blessing of the Internet, which is that everybody has a voice and you can break through, even without a record company.”

― Gloria Estefan

“The danger of the Internet is cocooning with the like-minded online – of sending an email or Twitter and confusing that with action – while the real corporate and military and government centers of power go right on.”

― Gloria Steinem

“I stand out because I’m usually the first to create a trend or make an existing trend unique in my own way. Plus I look and sound different then most people on the Internet and have the most recognizable lips in cyberspace.”

― GloZell

“My biggest challenges when I first started out were not having a computer or camera or Wi-Fi! The computer and the camera had to be borrowed, and there were times that I used the computer at the library, and I literally sat outside people’s houses to steal their Internet connections.”

― Graham Joyce

“The internet has become such a great tool not just for chefs but for everyone. The net has given everyone the tools to see and almost experience new and different ideas.”

― Graham Kerr

“Money is tighter now, with the advertising dollar spread a lot more thinly across a whole range of media because of the Internet. It means the television networks have less power to produce shows, and TV is where most Australian actors make their money.”

― Grant Bowler

“The main thing I’m concerned with right now, is getting people to understand that the Internet of Things is already in their lives. So if you look around your house, either your television, refrigerator, or some of your appliances – they are probably already connected.”

― Gray Scott

“I can remember when there were storylines with gay characters on shows like ‘Family’ and ‘Dynasty’ and thinking, I have something in common with that person. This was way before the Internet and all the visibility that has brought with it.”

“I sound like an old man when I talk about the Internet, but I am actually worried about what it’s doing to our brains and our sense of connection.”

― Greta Gerwig

“Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the Internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.”

― Gretchen Rubin

“The use of the Internet, the use of Twitter, the way protest movements developed… This is a different world.”

― Gus O’Donnell

“Instead of reading a paper, we now read the news online. Instead of buying books at a store, we buy them on-line. What’s so revolutionary? The Internet has mainly affected our leisure life.”

― Ha-Joon Chang

“We’re trying to build a platform utilizing the Internet that allows the good American people to speak out about their frustration about the polarized country that we live in politically.”

― Hamilton Jordan

“You mentioned Ross Perot. Mr. Perot jumped into the race at the last minute, had one issue that he ran on, the budget deficit, was in and out of the race a couple of times, and still got 20 million votes, didn’t have the Internet.”

― Hamilton Jordan

“You’re going to see this ‘Internet of things’ start demanding network performance and making the networks much more aware of what is on top of them.”

― Hans Vestberg

“People feel emboldened to say things on the Internet they wouldn’t in person.”

― Hari Nef

“The first thing is – and this is very important – I support the unmonitored use of the Internet for everyone. It doesn’t matter what country you’re in or what you do for a living – everyone should have the right to an unmonitored Internet.”

“I won’t deny that I have a far more productive writing life without the Internet, mostly because I rekindle my ability to concentrate on one thing for a period of longer than three minutes. My curiosity is channeled inward rather than Internet-ward.”

― Heidi Julavits

“The Internet lets women use words, which is their natural tool. Little girls speak in more complex, grammatical sentences than little boys do, and women never lose that superiority in verbal ability.”

― Helen Fisher

“It’ll be the Internet and piracy that will kill film. There’s a philosophy that the Internet should be free, but the reality is that piracy will destroy the film industry and film as an art form because it’s expensive to make a movie. Maybe you’ll have funky little independent movies, and it’ll go back and then start up again some other way.”

― Helen Mirren

“I’m under the impression that this notion of decency is disappearing from our society where conflicts are made worse on cinema and on television, where people are nasty and cruel on the Internet and where, in general, everybody seems to be very angry.”

― Helen Mirren

“It’s always important to read, to know something about this world, so I try to learn, to know, to see what I can learn for myself. Be it from books, TV or the Internet, I try to know what happened in the world.”

“My presence in the social media and on the Internet is much bigger than many of the other candidates, including Mitt Romney. So, when you take the social media and you take the Tea Party citizens movement, you have a combination there that, quite frankly, 10 years ago, I wouldn’t have had a chance.”

― Hollis Stacy

“I printed a list of Irish names from the Internet and my husband, Dave, saw Finley on the list. I really liked it but didn’t want to scare Dave off with my enthusiasm. So I used a little reverse psychology and let him think it was his idea.”

― Holly Marie Combs

“We have to be very careful about acknowledging that the Internet is very good at combatting isolation, but it’s not very good at delivering justice.”

“The two parts of technology that lower the threshold for activism and technology is the Internet and the mobile phone. Anyone who has a cause can now mobilize very quickly.”

― Howard Rheingold

“On the Internet, it is assumed people are in business to sell out, not to build something they can pass along to their grandkids.”

― Howard Rheingold

“There is never going to be a substitute for face-to-face communication, but we have seen since the alphabet, to the telephone and now the Internet, that whenever people find a new way to communicate, they will flock to it.”

― Ian Hislop

“A lot of people on the internet have been saying that there’s no way we can pull off a musical in three acts. We just take that as a challenge.”

― Ilaiyaraaja

“There are varieties of Spanglish. There’s Spanglish spoken by Cuban Americans in Miami called cubonics is different from Mexican American Spanglish, but thanks to the Internet, thanks to radio and television, thanks to what is happening in the classrooms, in the streets in the restaurants, we are finding a middle ground.”

― Ilan Stavans

“Blogging and the Internet allow us to engage in a lot more real time conversations as opposed to a one-way dump of information or a message.”

― Jaan Tallinn

“Well all the big companies are really panicked by the internet thing and all that, and sales went down, although sales have gone up again in this country a bit and also the big companies, because they’re so big, they need big sales really so they’re not really interested.”

― Jack Bruce

“The interesting products out on the Internet today are not building new technologies. They’re combining technologies. Instagram, for instance: Photos plus geolocation plus filters. Foursquare: restaurant reviews plus check-ins plus geo.”

“When I was starting out, I thought about how the Internet is global and that we should have a global name, a name that’s interesting. At that time, the best name was Yahoo! Suddenly I thought, ‘Alibaba is a good name.’”

― Jack Ma

“When we first started our internet company, ‘China Pages’, in 1995, and we were just making home pages for a lot of Chinese companies. We went to the big owners, the big companies, and they didn’t want to do it. We go to state-owned companies, and they didn’t want to do it. Only the small and medium companies really want to do it.”

“Like other forms of gambling, wagering on the Internet isn’t illegal because it’s bad. It’s bad because we’ve chosen to make it illegal.”

― Jacob Weisberg

“Despite all the Internet has done to make prices transparent and bibliographic information universal, you can still find – at book sales and thrift shops, auctions and even fancy dealers – unrecognized or underpriced rarities. Getting something valuable for cheap is the basic, greedy thrill of book collecting.”

― Jacob Weisberg

“When I travel I always try to see shows from a local group, and with the Internet it’s important to have a global vision of music.”

“The Internet won’t skip a beat, and neither will I. Technology is constantly changing and evolving.”

― Jake Paul

“It’s irresponsible to put uncorroborated information on the Internet.”

― Jake Tapper

“The notion of the Internet as a force of political and social revolution is not a new one. As far back as the early 1990s, in the early days of the World Wide Web, there were technologists and writers arguing forcefully that the Internet was destined to become the most important tool for cultural change in human history.”

― Jamais Cascio

“Cloud computing offers individuals access to data and applications from nearly any point of access to the Internet, offers businesses a whole new way to cut costs for technical infrastructure, and offers big computer companies a potentially giant market for hardware and services.”

― Jamais Cascio

“The Internet is not kind to established institutions.”

― Jamais Cascio

“Being connected to the Internet means being vulnerable to coordinated actions that can knock down walls of secrecy and shatter mechanisms of control.”

― James Altucher

“There’s no question that the Internet generally, and Netflix specifically, upended the traditional content-distribution supply chain and caused profound changes in the entertainment industry.”

― James B. Stewart

“The Internet is the Wild West of the world, where anybody can throw anything down. Everything can be as relevant as the next thing; it doesn’t matter who posts it. In that environment, the Critics’ Choice is still very important.”

― James Bay

“The investment we’re all looking for is actually saving labor… Look at what the internet is doing to retail.”

“I’ve always been an Internet kid.”

― James Charles

“When the Internet was first – as an experiment and then when it – as it mushroomed, security was never an integral part of what the Internet was designed for. I mean, it just didn’t – wasn’t a consideration.”

― James Clapper

“Folks are wandering around that proverbial parking lot of the Internet all day long, without giving it a thought to whose attachments they’re opening, what sites they’re visiting. And that makes it easy for the bad guys.”

― James Comey

“Unfortunately, changing forms of Internet communication are quickly outpacing laws and technology designed to allow for the lawful intercept of communication content.”

― James Comey

“ISIL’s widespread reach through the Internet and social media is most concerning, as the group has proven dangerously competent at employing such tools for its nefarious strategy. ISIL uses high-quality, traditional media platforms as well as widespread social media campaigns to propagate its extremist ideology.”

― James Comey

“Cisco projects that in 2020, now just five years away, there will be seven billion people on the earth and 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. Six-and-a-half devices on average per person. As a father of five young adults and teenagers, I think we are – in my household, we’ve exceeded the 6.5 number.”

― James Comey

“Social media has allowed groups, such as ISIL, to use the Internet to spot and assess potential recruits. With the widespread horizontal distribution of social media, terrorists can identify vulnerable individuals of all ages in the United States – spot, assess, recruit, and radicalize – either to travel or to conduct a homeland attack.”

― James Comey

“Cybercrime is becoming everything in crime. Again, because people have connected their entire lives to the Internet, that’s where those who want to steal money or hurt kids or defraud go. So it’s an epidemic for reasons that make sense.”

― James Comey

“The Internet offers the ability for people to consume poison and radicalize entirely in private, either through a device they’re holding in their hands or inside their house.”

― James Daly

“I think up until that time a lot of focus on Internet coverage was either sort of the bits and bytes aspect of it, sort of the high-tech aspect of it, and the sociological aspect of it, which is how it was transforming culture.”

― James Daly

“See, what we were going to do was say, the Internet is this great business strategy tool.”

“When people say that the Internet is going to make us all geniuses, that was said about the telegraph. On the other hand, when they say the Internet is going to make us stupid, that also was said about the telegraph.”

― James Gleick

“In general, I think people should be skeptical of the Internet as a reference tool because so much of what’s on it is unreliable and costumed – a hall of mirrors.”

― James Gleick

“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

“No matter how much Bill Gates may claim otherwise, he missed the Internet, like a barreling freight train that he didn’t hear or see coming.”

― James H. Clark

“I’d say there was a fair amount of skepticism at the time about whether the Internet held any promise. And of course I felt that it did.”

― James H. Clark

“I believe that the Internet is the information highway. I’m religious about this. I don’t think it’s cable television.”

― James H. Clark

“If you look at the first commercial transactions on the Internet, few of the early companies necessarily survived intact, but the ideas they invented became the industry.”

― James Heywood

“What the Internet offers is this completely unfiltered transmission of thought to thought, of psyche to psyche, and whatever you’re feeling, you can just sort of put it down and send it out there, and you can do it all in the confines of your room, without any actual contact.”

― James Lasdun

“I don’t know much about the Internet, I’m afraid.”

“On the Internet, everyone is writing. There is a great flowering of writing.”

― James Salter

“If you thought the advent of the Internet, the spread of cheap and efficient information technology, and the growing fragmentation of the consumer market were all going to help smaller companies thrive at the expense of the slow-moving giants of the Fortune 500, apparently you were wrong.”

― James Surowiecki

“Solyndra’s failure isn’t a reason for the government to give up on alternative energy, any more than the failure of Pets.com during the Internet bubble means that venture capital should steer clear of tech projects.”

― James Surowiecki

“The history of the Internet is, in part, a series of opportunities missed: the major record labels let Apple take over the digital-music business; Blockbuster refused to buy Netflix for a mere fifty million dollars; Excite turned down the chance to acquire Google for less than a million dollars.”

― James Surowiecki

“The Internet has become a remarkable fount of economic and social innovation largely because it’s been an archetypal level playing field, on which even sites with little or no money behind them – blogs, say, or Wikipedia – can become influential.”

― James Surowiecki

“The Internet gave us access to everything; but it also gave everything access to us.”

― James Veitch

“The Internet is one of the biggest advances ever in our world.”

― James Wan

“What I would like with the Internet is to have it go faster.”

― James Wan

“What’s happening to movie critics is no different from what has been meted out to book, dance, theater, and fine-arts reviewers and reporters in the cultural deforestation that has driven refugees into the diffuse clatter of the Internet and Twitter, where some adapt and thrive – such as Roger Ebert – while others disappear without a twinkle.”

― James Wolcott

“When my grandfather was born, there was no healthcare. There were no airplanes. There were no boats. There were no trains. There were no communications. No Internet. No widespread knowledge. It will be a completely different world but a much better place in a hundred years.”

― Jamie Dimon

“But don’t get caught out there looking goofy. It’s weird. When you do something that stinks, it’s going to last forever on the Internet. There’s always someone in the audience with a camera phone and if you’re not 100%, you’re going to be watching yourself on YouTube.”

― Jamie Foxx

“I went to the library – and this was before the Internet – and I searched for a career that was creative, would not fall into a routine, involved problem solving and making things. It also had to be dynamic. I came up with special effects.”

― Jane Fonda

“I have spent many a night in an Internet chat room, but not since I’ve been married.”

“I have spent many a night in an Internet chat room, but not since I’ve been married. I don’t do the chat rooms anymore, but I have become completely addicted to Ebay.”

― Jane Green

“I have had the good fortune to experience both the limelight and the traffic light as a musician. I did my first recording on my own and it was available at concerts. The second to seventh were released on small and then large labels. My eighth to 14th were done under my own steam once again, but with the benefit of the Internet.”

“The Internet has introduced me to some of my closest friends.”

― Janet Mock

“Magazines that depend on photography, and design, and long reads, and quality stuff, are going to do just fine despite the Internet and cable news.”

― Jann Wenner

“The challenges are different to different kinds of magazines. News magazines, magazines that have high frequency and news, are going to be challenged, heavily challenged, not just by the Internet but by the whole 24-hour news cycle which has just been getting enhanced.”

― Jann Wenner

“At a certain point, a critical mass of people either have used the Internet or have expectations. Anything less than the free flow of information will be seen as having something taken away. We’ve seen time and again – in Egypt and Iran, for example – that creates a backlash.”

― Jared Cohen

“Without net neutrality protections, the Internet would no longer be a free and open ecosystem for innovation.”

― Jared Polis

“I oppose piracy and want to see intellectual property protected because that is what fosters and rewards innovation. But SOPA won’t accomplish a meaningful reduction in piracy and causes massive collateral damage to the Internet ecosystem.”

― Jared Polis

“While still in college, I started my first Internet company – American Information Systems – a dial-up Internet provider in the Internet’s formative years.”

― Jared Polis

“A free and open Internet is essential to our democracy, economy, and modern way of life.”

― Jared Polis

“If we enter into the kind of world that Google likes, the world that Google wants, it’s a world where information is copied so much on the Internet that nobody knows where it came from anymore, so there can’t be any rights of authorship.”

― Jaron Lanier

“I think the Internet is a huge positive.”

― Jason Bateman

“The balance of power shifts on the Internet to the individual. This is a two-way medium.”

― Jason Calacanis

“Social media, like blogs, are truth-seeking technologies. In fact, the Internet itself is the greatest truth-generating device ever created.”

― Jason Calacanis

“Even companies that do big business online struggle to be noticed by Google users. The Web, after all, is home to some 120 million Internet domains and tens of billions of indexed pages. But every company, big or small, can draw more Google traffic by using search-engine optimization – SEO, for short.”

― Jason Fried

“We have to be willing to engage ISIS militarily, economically, and even on the Internet without delay. For instance, I think we waited too long to engage al-Qaida and the Taliban in Pakistan. And we should not make a similar mistake with ISIS elements throughout the world.”

― Jason Kander

“The Internet is going to have a bigger impact on content creators than the television ever had. The reason why that’s the case is that suddenly you’re able to tell stories 24/7 in the home, out of the home, in every room of the home. A television screen can be in your pocket through a smartphone.”

― Jason Kilar

“I think especially with the Internet and the amount of reality shows that are going on, there’s no way to keep a secret anymore, so I try to let my project be as much as reality show as I can allow it to be.”

“My whole career began because I was always putting my music on the Internet. By the time I had my first tour, I had an audience everywhere I went, because people were listening online.”

― Jason Mraz

“Human beings are attracted to novelty: to probe the ‘adjacent possible.’ We didn’t stay in the caves. We didn’t stay on the planet, and soon we won’t stay within the limitations of our biology. We move forward. We transcend our limits. We go to the moon, and we create the Internet.”

― Jason Silva

“Fire has impacted every part of our lives – without fire, there would be no shopping, right? – that’s how the Internet will intrude on our lives, particularly our kids’ lives.”

― Jay Chiat

“The Internet, arguably the fastest world-changing invention since the Gutenberg printing press, has become the core of our social and business lives.”

― Jay Inslee

“Because of the Internet’s open platform, entrepreneurs have started small businesses, innovators have created online services, and webcasters have produced a diversity of news-information sources. We must make sure that winners and losers are decided by the marketplace and not your Internet service provider.”

― Jay Inslee

“I’d been on the Internet since the 1970s when it was just for nerds. I started saying, ‘Who would benefit from this?’ I started imagining a world where young people could have their own email address, back in the days of family AOL accounts.”

― Jay Samit

“I think reviews have lost a lot of their importance now because of the Internet; everyone is experiencing things at the same time.”

“Music, photography, media, film – it’s all going to be free on the Internet. We have to accept it.”

― Jean-Michel Jarre

“Think about when you listen to a song on the radio. You are not paying for it; it’s not illegal to do it, because the rights have been paid for on top, beforehand, by the radio station, by the network. We have to find exactly the same kind of system with the Internet.”

― Jean-Michel Jarre

“I was always interested in mixing experimentation with pop music, and Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream – we were all doing it at the same time, just very isolated from each other, all in our different cellars, in different worlds, without the Internet – underground in every sense.”

― Jean-Michel Jarre

“The Internet keeps us constantly connected, and the increasing sophistication of mobile devices allows us much greater choice over when, how, and where we work.”

“I believe ‘credibility’ is one of the biggest issues yet to be addressed by Internet advertisers.”

― Jef I. Richards

“The Internet is the last place where there is actually a free market on Earth.”

― Jeff Berwick

“The reason people talk about cable cutting is they imagine the price burden will get so high that people won’t be able to pay it. They’re missing something: that the actual price of the electronic package is going down. They’ve got their Internet, phone, TV, all of it. Now people are using more and more stuff for less.”

― Jeff Bewkes

“Television is taking over the Internet.”

― Jeff Bewkes

“People forget already how much utility they get out of the Internet – how much utility they get out of e-mail, how much utility they get out of even simple things like brochureware online.”

― Jeff Bezos

“I very much believe the Internet is indeed all it is cracked up to be.”

― Jeff Bezos

“On the Internet, companies are scale businesses, characterized by high fixed costs and relatively low variable costs. You can be two sizes: You can be big, or you can be small. It’s very hard to be medium. A lot of medium-sized companies had the financing rug pulled out from under them before they could get big.”

― Jeff Bezos

“But there’s so much kludge, so much terrible stuff, we are at the 1908 Hurley washing machine stage with the Internet. That’s where we are. We don’t get our hair caught in it, but that’s the level of primitiveness of where we are. We’re in 1908.”

― Jeff Dunham

“I’ve been managing Internet businesses since 1999. That’s 12 years of being in the tornado, and it’s pretty exhausting. I’ll be looking at the next challenge, but in terms of operating an Internet business, I’ve scratched that itch very well.”

― Jeff Jordan

“Compunet was fantastic. You could upload these little demos of what you’d been working on, and it was a really nice social scene – years before the Internet.”

― Jeff Minter

“We’d been noticing how much more important the internet had become – once information is out there in the world now, anyone can get it. Since that was beginning to happen with the record anyway, we figured, OK, let’s just stream it for free ourselves.”

― Jeff Tweedy

“We live in a connected world now. Some find that frightening. If people are downloading our music, they’re listening to it. The internet is like radio for us.”

“The beauty of the Internet is that anybody can be a broadcaster now.”

― Jeffrey Gitomer

“I am the Internet guy. But the reason the ‘Onion News Empire’ was such an easy decision to make is I so trust that side of the fence now.”

― Jeffrey Tambor

“Now, not every blog post or ‘Top 10 Ways to Make Money on the Internet’ piece deserves to live forever. But there’s gold among the dross, and there are web publications that we would do well to preserve for historical purposes.”

― Jeffrey Zeldman

“ISIL, AQ, now have the ability to literally reach into our homeland through social media, through the Internet, to recruit and inspire. It makes for a more complicated homeland security environment. And so it requires a whole of government approach, not just military and law enforcement, homeland security, aviation security, and the like.”

― Jeh Johnson

“What I get to do is have fun in my house, by myself, and put it on the Internet.”

― Jenna Marbles

“I liked to scrapbook and collage a whole lot in high school. I’m always ripping things out of magazines, and always collecting quotes from the Internet. When I was 17, I loved AIM. I was obsessed with my buddy list!”

― Jenna Ushkowitz

“The Internet is especially adept at compressing humanity and making it easy to forget there are people behind tweets, posts, and memes.”

― Jenna Wortham

“A governing ethos of the Internet has been that whatever flows through it – information, ideas – is up for grabs.”

― Jenna Wortham

“In theory, the maturation of the Internet should have killed off the desire for zines entirely.”

― Jenna Wortham

“Producing zines can offer an unexpected respite from the scrutiny on the Internet, which can be as oppressive as it is liberating.”

― Jenna Wortham

“For all teenagers, the Internet offers a periscope to the outside world, but it’s particularly important for students who are unable to find themselves represented and understood in their immediate surroundings.”

― Jenna Wortham

“When people talk about how the Internet has changed the way we travel, they typically lament the way our compulsion to document removes us, somehow, from the actual experience.”

― Jenna Wortham

― Jenna Wortham

“I don’t actually go on the Internet that much.”

― Jennifer Coolidge

“I will tell you what I can’t abide – and I think the Internet has really created a space for it – women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers.”

― Jennifer Garner

“I’d quit my job at a production company and was like, ‘I’m going to be a writer…’ I became a temp, and it was the mid-nineties, when there was the Internet boom, and the normal group of graduates ready to fill in didn’t exist.”

― Jennifer Konner

“The internet to me is kind of like a black hole, and I never really go on it.”

― Jennifer Lawrence

“Everything that works on the Internet depends on a lot of people collaborating, but there’s also these rules that you see across all the really successful platforms. Many, many, many more people consume the information or benefit from the information than actually contribute the information.”

― Jennifer Pahlka

“As a society, we haven’t spent as much time building the citizen Internet.”

― Jennifer Pahlka

“The way certain men treat women is influenced by the Internet a lot.”

― Jenny Lawson

“From its very inception, Lenny Letter set out to create a supportive, positive, inclusive space on the Internet that does not shy away from complexity and nuance.”

― Jenny Zhang

“One of the lessons learned from 22 July is that we have to take seriously all those people who take part in debates on the Internet, expressing extreme views, and then meet them, discuss with them, bring them into the open. We have not used bans or used the laws to try to forbid parties or political tendencies which we don’t like.”

― Jens Stoltenberg

“The big idea of, ‘Hey, I can pay anyone, anywhere, with whatever digital wallet they have, and it just flows around the Internet’ – that’s on the horizon; that’s how we built everything we do.”

― Jeremy Allaire

“I want to help create the world’s first global currency built on the Internet and built on open platforms and standards such as Bitcoin, and I want to build a financial services institution on top of that. That’s what I’m doing with Circle.”

― Jeremy Allaire

“The Internet requires evolved forms of governance that we haven’t figured out as a planet. I’d love to help make that easier and make that possible.”

― Jeremy Allaire

“We use the block chain to share value, just like Internet protocol lets us share communication. Our goal is to build a global, international bank that is instant, global, and free. Sending payments should be as easy as sending an email.”

― Jeremy Allaire

“The emergence of open Internet protocols for value exchange, today led by the global adoption of Bitcoin’s blockchain, paves the way for value to move as freely as information and data move on the Internet today.”

― Jeremy Allaire

“Then there’s going to be another project I am involved with, in fact, I’m going back to film it next week. It’s a game for the Internet called Advance Warriors, and my character is Max, who is blind, but he has special powers. It will be a new game played on the Internet.”

― Jeremy Bulloch

“You take out an injunction against somebody or some organisation and immediately news of that injunction and the people involved and the story behind the injunction is in a legal-free world on Twitter and the Internet. It’s pointless.”

― Jeremy Clarkson

“Before we had the Internet, I organized a fax campaign against the first Iraq war. We blasted faxes to the hotel where James Baker and Tariq Aziz were having their final meeting before the two sides went to war. Much more recently, I co-founded Avaaz and Get Up, which inspired the creation of Purpose.”

― Jeremy Heimans

“I think all of society should be a think-tank where you throw ideas about. I had hoped the Internet would help. Actually, what it has done is make everybody go schtum. They’re attacked for saying anything. So they say nothing.”

― Jeremy Irons

“I think with every successful consumer Internet business, there will be lawyers that are interested in going after your company, especially when they think that there’s a financial incentive.”

― Jeremy Stoppelman

“Eddie Murphy did ’48 Hrs.’ because that was the only movie offered to him. And he killed it. Bill Cosby did ‘I Spy’ because that was the TV show he was offered. But now, there are networks dedicated to comedy, and the Internet… it’s so easy for comedians to not do things that aren’t true to them.”

― Jerrod Carmichael

“I like computers. I like the Internet. It’s a tool that can be used. But don’t be misled into thinking that these technologies are anything other than aspects of a degenerate economic system.”

― Jerry Brown

“The Internet is king. Newspapers are dead or dying. Magazines are shrinking every day. Ad budgets are being cut. The bottom line is now the only line in advertising.”

― Jerry Della Femina

“I kind of thought that stand-up comedy would suffer from the Internet because people seem to know more about the craft of stand-up than ever before. I thought it would seem trite. Kind of like if you know more about magicians, you wouldn’t love them.”

― Jerry Seinfeld

“The Internet offers opportunities that are more unique than ever before. With TV, I know I’m making 22 minutes; I know there’s a commercial in the middle. With the Internet, no one knows anything. No rules.”

― Jerry Seinfeld

“The Internet’s a driving force in the change from mass media to ‘my media,’ in which consumers will be their own programmers.”

― Jerry Yang

“The last bastion of competitiveness is local advertising sales. There’s little being spent by local advertisers on the Internet. That’s where local media have leverage.”

― Jerry Yang

“Yahoo is a consumer brand. It is a consumer brand that allows people to get what they want from the Internet in a way that only Yahoo can deliver it.”

― Jerry Yang

“The Internet, as a First Amendment medium, hinges on free expression, and that means free advertising.”

― Jerry Yang

“The writing comes first for me. Not Facebook, not Twitter, not the Internet or signings or merchandise, or ‘the career.’ Everything begins and ends with the writing for me, and I build my entire life around sitting my butt down 365 days a year.”

― Jessica Bird

“There is more of a demand, especially on the Internet and on Tumblr and Twitter, from women who are like, ‘We want to see more of us on TV!’.”

― Jessica Williams

“I can watch CNN on television or the Internet to find out what happened in Hong Kong ten minutes ago. After all, it doesn’t matter where something is made, we’re all part of the same big family now.”

― Jet Li

“I sort of came out at the dawn of the Internet in the mid-90s and I think it helped break my career. I think I was one of the first artists to really benefit from the grassroots swell that can happen online. I don’t know if I would have broken out without it.”

― Jewel

“Although I believe the Web has greatly increased the distribution of quality news, I do worry about those who don’t have Internet access.”

― Jill Abramson

“I think, because of the Internet, we’re not looking at the very, very narrow channels for distribution that there used to be.”

― Jill Soloway

“This is sort of typical Hillary Clinton: to do things that are not legal, to say that they are, and then try to cover them up. Hillary Clinton severely chastised other whistleblowers for using Internet channels that were not secure, and yet she herself was doing that with private, high-level State Department information.”

― Jill Stein

“A young artist can become popular more quickly with the Internet providing instant access to one’s work.”

― Jim Barksdale

“Live music is proof that there’s some things the Internet can’t kill. In our lifetime, we’re going to see more and more things start to disappear and get gobbled up by the Internet, but live music won’t be one of them.”

― Jim James

“I think we’re going to look back on the Internet in 50 to 100 years as a big mistake.”

“In an effort to provide my constituents with information on how they can make contributions to a number of relief and humanitarian organizations, I have posted a short list of these groups and contact numbers on my Internet website.”

― Jo Bonner

“Watching my kids grow up made me realize that they would never know a world or a time without the Internet.”

― Jo Webber

“Moveon is not a one-way broadcast media. The Internet, when used best, is a two-way media. We have a forum in which people can post comments and those comments can be rated. We get a sense of what people feel most passionately about.”

― Joan Blades

“People think of us as an information distributor because that’s how they relate to the Internet. But most of the time people already have pretty well established opinions.”

― Joan Blades

“I love the Internet, and I love that you can say whatever you want.”

― Joan Rivers

“The interesting thing about the Internet is that it has created a kind of alternative circle of friends for people.”

― Joanne Harris

“Regardless of what is on the Internet, I’m actually only 29 years old – and holding.”

― Jodi Lyn O’Keefe

“You do not need the government to protect open internet; the marketplace was doing it and will continue to do it. All you are doing is adding a burden that does not need to be there.”

― Joe Barton

“There was a rumour that I was buying Gibson. It circulated around the Internet… And I just go, ‘How well off do you think I am?’ I play blues-rock for a living. It’s like a vow of poverty.”

― Joe Bonamassa

“We’ve invented a new marketplace. There was no easy way to rent a person’s bedroom over the Internet or book a vacation rental over the Internet. There was no guidebook for us to turn to as we defined this new marketplace.”

― Joe Gebbia

“The Internet has brought democracy to so many other things. It’s about time the Internet brought democracy to democracy.”

― Joe Green

“When all is said and done and the e-book is written about politics and the Internet, it is not going to be about the presidential election. It will be about the smaller elections in aggregate that have a huge effect on people’s lives.”

― Joe Green

“In 2012 there was a megafoolish, if well-funded, effort by a group called Americans Elect to raise an independent Cincinnatus to run for president via an Internet draft. It flopped, spectacularly.”

― Joe Klein

“The music industry the last 120 years has been insane. It’s just continual chaos. So it’s not unusual that something like the Internet comes around, but as one door closes another one opens, and that certainly is the case where now, artists can have a lot of control over how they display to the world, all at once, their new record.”

― Joe Satriani

“There’s no more record companies, so I have to get on the Internet and let people know the album is out there. I don’t know if we’re working for it, or if it’s working for us.”

― Joe Walsh

“I operate under the theory that all publicity is good publicity, and then, if that theory doesn’t work, you just say that any newspaper article ends up on the bottom of the parrot cage. But, of course, you can’t line a parrot cage with Internet bloggers, can you?”

― Joel Edgerton

“I don’t appreciate, really, talking to journalists when there’s a sense of wanting to kick up dust to sell more papers or get more hits on their Internet site.”

― Joel Edgerton

“It’s funny how sometimes you learn things off the Internet before they’re actually told to you.”

― Joel Edgerton

“I do know one thing: it’s best not to read the Internet.”

― Joel Edgerton

“On social media, I can hide behind the computer or the iPhone. Internet courage.”

― Joel Embiid

“The internet is a total inversion of television. It’s the opposite.”

― Joel Hodgson

“There are always ridiculous things on television or on the Internet that make people go, ‘Did you see that?’ That could be anything from a clip from the ‘Real Housewives’ to someone jumping off their roof and missing the pool to a zillion other things.”

― Joel McHale

“The music business has changed incredibly. There used to be 50 record companies. Now there’s only three, and it’s just getting smaller and smaller. But then again, you have the Internet, so anybody who has music can get it out there.”

― Joey McIntyre

“I did comics on the Internet because it was free, and if I had made printed copies, I wouldn’t have known what to do with them. But I knew how to make a website when most people didn’t, and back then, that was enough!”

― John Allison

“The Internet provides very serious challenges to our ability to keep from children the kinds of things that are destructive to them.”

― John Ashcroft

“Ideally, content should be shared, mixed, mashed, and reposted – it wants to flow through the Internet like water. This was the point of RSS, after all – a technology that has actually been declared dead more often than the lowly display banner.”

― John Battelle

“The ‘old’ Internet is shrinking and being replaced by walled gardens over which Google’s crawlers can’t climb. Sure, Google can crawl Facebook’s ‘public pages,’ but those represent a tiny fraction of the ‘pages’ on Faceboo, and are not informed by the crucial signals of identity and relationship which give those pages meaning.”

― John Battelle

“I think Facebook is an extraordinarily important part of the Internet ecosystem, and having a robust presence there is a critical part of any brand (or company’s) strategy.”

― John Battelle

“Teenagers aren’t loyal to much of anything – especially Internet stuff.”

― John Battelle

“I’ve always liked the fact that anyone with a great idea, access to the Internet, and an unrelenting will can spark a world-beating company simply by standing up code on the Internet and/or leveraging the information and relationship network that is the web. That’s how Facebook started, after all.”

― John Battelle

“It seems there is no area in our culture that is not touched, changed, even swallowed by the Internet. It’s both medium and message, mass and personal, social and solitary.”

― John Battelle

“Just like the VCR opened the film and TV industries to unimaginable new revenue streams, search, RSS and the Internet will do the same for marketers and media companies.”

― John Battelle

“The way I mainly use the Internet is keeping in touch with poets that live far away. My main interest is contemporary American poets and some Spanish language poets, and I keep in touch with their work through either their websites or email.”

― John Burnside

“John Conyers’ office has been very responsive to citizen concerns and the Internet has presented a way to communicate with them in a way that’s never before been there.”

― John Byrne

“Technology has become such a big part of our humanity. We have the Internet on 24 hours a day, even when we’re sleeping.”

― John Cabrera

“The Internet is a testament to a connected system that works – it’s a global network where any computer can reach another, and easily transfer information across.”

― John Collison

“When a country doesn’t have a good economic infrastructure, that harms the country. With Stripe, the idea is that by providing better infrastructure, by linking the Internet economically, by making it easier for these online businesses to exist, it’ll make the web better.”

― John Collison

“You know the way trees break through the canopy in the rainforest and they go from having this tiny column of light to having all this light – the Internet is kind of like that.”

― John Collison

“As long as the Internet economy continues to grow, Stripe will continue to grow.”

― John Collison

“There’s no such thing as the ‘Irish Internet.’ It’s just the Internet.”

― John Collison

“Internet mailing lists are like Fox television shows. They have really cool previews, and they get you all excited about them, but they just don’t live up to their promises.”

― John Dobbin

“Green technologies – going green – is bigger than the Internet. It could be the biggest economic opportunity of the 21st century.”

― John Doerr

“If the U.N. were to be successful in its efforts to control the Internet, countries where human rights records range from questionable to criminal could be put in charge of determining what is and is not allowed to appear online.”

― John Doolittle

“The only way the Internet will continue to remain the thriving medium it has become today is to keep it under the control of the United States.”

― John Doolittle

“The United States invented the Internet and it has been our gift to the world, paid for by our taxpayers. The U.N.’s desire to take that gift as a means of increasing its power must be stopped.”

― John Doolittle

“Turning the Internet over to the U.N. or some other phony international organization would be a disaster, and I am not willing to stand by and let it happen.”

― John Doolittle

“Books were my Internet, my TV, my movies all rolled into one.”

― John Edgar Wideman

“The internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.”

― John Gilmour

“There is a lot of talk in publishing these days that we need to become more like the Internet: We need to make books for short attention spans with bells and whistles – books, in short, that are as much like ‘Angry Birds’ as possible. But I think that’s a terrible idea.”

― John Green

“I don’t think we should see the world of books as fundamentally separate from the world of the Internet. Yes, the Internet contains a lot of videos of squirrels riding skateboards, but it can also be a place that facilitates big conversations about books.”

― John Green

“I love making YouTube videos. I love Tumblr, I love Twitter. I love talking with people I find interesting about stuff I find interesting, and the Internet is a great way to do that.”

― John Green

“Infrastructure is more than laying new roads and expanding transit: it’s running the fiber and deploying new technologies for reliable, affordable Internet in every part of the state.”

― John Hickenlooper

“Any time you try to create an Internet meme, automatic fail. That’s like the worst thing you can do.”

― John Hodgman

“I am not an Internet superstar.”

― John Hodgman

“The most important book on the Internet is, essentially, the Internet.”

― John Hodgman

“Through a blog, an ordinary citizen such as myself can use the Internet, this thing invented by Albert Gore, to talk from my house to the U.S. capital and to make use of my right to point out to government officials and to the media when they are wrong.”

― John Jay Hooker

“The Internet will save higher education, but it may kill your alma mater.”

― John Katzman

“The Internet makes writing about restaurants easier and more interesting in quite a few ways, one of the main ones being to do with the mundane business of checking what’s on the menu.”

― John Lanchester

“Information technology and the Internet are rapidly transforming almost every aspect of our lives – some for better, some for worse.”

― John Landgraf

“Rotten Tomatoes is such a great website, in that it has one foot in the Internet world and one foot in the cinema world, and it keeps its grounding between them just perfectly.”

― John Lasseter

“I have one major problem with the Internet: It’s full of liars.”

― John Lydon

“I have one major problem with the internet: It’s full of liars. There doesn’t seem to be any way to answer to people lying about you.”

― John Lydon

“Back then, before the Internet, you had these paper catalogs that you ordered all the food from. So, we flipped through the catalogs, looked up the food we wanted, called them up, and they would show up in trucks.”

― John Mackey

“Miz & Morrison, ‘The Greatest Tag Team of the 21st Century,’ was fun because Miz and I have great comedic chemistry for backstage segments and our Internet show, ‘The Dirt Sheet.’”

― John Morrison

“Among the Internet’s many gains for humanity, decreasing paranoia has not been one of them. Anything from that lump under your armpit to what’s lurking in the sea – just type it into a search engine and watch your nerves explode.”

― John Niven

“Everything is relative. Is the Internet fast? Not for most people. Is it always on? Yes, for cable modem and DSL users but that represents a tiny percentage of users.”

― John Patrick

“The Internet treats censorship as a malfunction and routes around it.”

― John Perry Barlow

“The Internet amplifies power in all respects. It can grossly exaggerate the power of the individual.”

― John Perry Barlow

“The Internet may well disempower the nation state, but at the same time, it also strengthens certain specific state functions – like surveillance. As a political entity, it doesn’t empower the nation sate. It creates the availability of much more data than the digestive system of the nation state could possibly assimilate.”

― John Perry Barlow

“The Internet is the most liberating tool for humanity ever invented, and also the best for surveillance. It’s not one or the other. It’s both.”

― John Perry Barlow

“Back in 1995, Bill Gates himself didn’t understand that the internet was the direction computing was going.”

― John Podhoretz

“You can do a short film in three to four days, and then you can show it. Look at the careers you seen go either through Tropfest or outside of Tropfest. You can make a short film in a couple of days, and if it’s great, it can go in the Internet or go to a film festival like this one or another.”

― John Polson

“Any small business that’s predicated on technological innovation and is differentiated and superior can expand globally very effectively using the Internet as a vehicle for promotion.”

― John Quelch

“Fanboys are a creator’s blessing and curse. If a fanboy likes you, they love you. Obsessively. If you cross them with some plot point or story direction they reject, expect to be wholly and continually eviscerated across the Internet.”

― John Ridley

“There’s no disputing that for pols, the Internet is a great way to connect with people and raise some cash and post ‘Sopranos’ parodies or play your opponent’s macaca moments. But in a ‘net root’ sense, it’s pretty useless for getting someone elected.”

― John Ridley

“Before the Internet became so powerful, I toured extensively. With the rise of the Internet, touring apparently has become less important.”

― John Sandford

“Reddit is not a public utility or a public square; it’s a privately owned space on the Internet.”

― John Scalzi

“Health care missed the PC and Internet revolutions, but it can’t afford to miss the cloud and mobile revolution.”

― John Sculley

“The difference between Spotify and Internet radio services like Pandora is that Spotify is interactive. You can sample the complete catalogue of most artists’ recordings.”

― John Seabrook

“Putting a stop to internet gambling is a necessary reform that targets flagrant violations of state and federal laws.”

― John Shadegg

“Not since the steam engine has any invention disrupted business models like the Internet. Whole industries including music distribution, yellow-pages directories, landline telephones, and fax machines have been radically reordered by the digital revolution.”

― John Sununu

“The Internet will win because it is relentless. Like a cannibal, it even turns on it own. Though early portals like Prodigy and AOL once benefited from their first-mover status, competitors surpassed them as technology and consumer preferences changed.”

― John Sununu

“The Internet creates as well as destroys. Social networks, search advertising, and cloud computing are multibillion dollar industries that didn’t exist 10 years ago. They are products of the same force that has rendered the Postal Service’s core business obsolete.”

― John Sununu

“Organized crime and rogue nation states and terrorists are very much focused on the Internet of things. The challenge that goes with connectivity is always security. The bad guys go wherever the return is, and now it’s more lucrative for bad guys to focus on cybercrime than traditional crime.”

― John T. Chambers

“The Internet will change the way we work, live, learn, and play.”

― John T. Chambers

“There are two equalizers in life: the Internet and education.”

― John Travolta

“The Internet doesn’t like you to learn too much about explosives.”

― John Updike

“The thing we have to be careful of is that the Internet is a global communications medium, and if one country tips the balance in regulating its use or regulating what companies or individuals do on the web, it could have an economic impact that might be unintended, quite frankly, by the regulations themselves.”

― John W. Thompson

“I got sick and tired of my lady wearing ugly underwear to bed, so I turned to the Internet.”

― John Wilson

“Our belief is that it is a basket of well-diversified companies that are playing the Internet, but are not direct Internet companies.”

“Using the Internet as as vehicle to work with people is fascinating. It’s sort of a Pandora’s box of energy for me.”

“In theory, the Internet should bring us all closer together and slowly eliminate our differences.”

― Jon Evans

“I don’t have the identity of any of them. I only had the nicks that they used on Internet Relay Chat.”

― Jon Postel

“Years ago when you’d go to a working group most of the people in the working group would be from universities. Now most of the people are from companies who are building internet products and care what the standards turn out to be.”

― Jon Postel

“I think they called me the closest thing to a God of the Internet.”

― Jon Postel

“That was clearly surprising, interesting – a very interesting milestone was when you can pick up a magazine and read an article about some sort of computer related thing and they mention the word internet without explaining it.”

― Jon Postel

“I think that audio and video over the internet in the sense of teleconferencing and telephone calls. Maybe we’ll actually have picture phone through your work station.”

― Jon Postel

“There was one issue on which there seemed to be almost unanimity: the Internet should not be managed by any government, national or multinational.”

― Jon Postel

“The Internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom.”

― Jon Stewart

“People say the Internet’s made of cats. The reason isn’t because of cats; it’s because people like to have an emotion where they say ‘aww’ all at the same time.”

― Jonah Peretti

“It’s flattering that there are lots of Internet fan sites about me. I’m a bit of a technophobe and I don’t even own a laptop, but it’s probably a good thing I’m not logged on, checking up on what everyone is saying about me.”

― Jonas Armstrong

“In 1962, we created the Filmmakers’ Co-Op because nobody wanted to distribute our films. If we had the Internet in those days, we wouldn’t have needed the Co-Op.”

― Jonas Mekas

“We get sucked into the Internet and streaming information, and it’s time to just unplug and look within.”

― Jonathan Cain

“Here is what I am not going to do: I am not going to go to a restaurant, take pictures of my food, download them, and call that a blog. That is beyond the pale. The Internet is such a bazaar of self-indulgences that I don’t know why that particular one should bug me so much. But it really does.”

― Jonathan Dee

“The Internet is a good way to try some stuff with no big crew and no money being spent. Since there are no stakes to it, you can try to be a little experimental.”

― Jonathan Krisel

“Not long ago, in an excruciatingly remote village in the Australian Outback, I was startled to see a bartender in a cowboy hat measuring out a classically proportioned French 75 – something he’d picked up on the Internet, he told me.”

― Jonathan Miles

“A lot of filmmakers hate testing movies. I love it because it’s an audience medium. The biggest problem has been the prevalence of all these Internet sites. It’s almost impossible to have a test screening without it leaking out on the Internet.”

― Jonathan Mostow

“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

― Jonathan Zittrain

“The Internet is a collective hallucination: one of the best humanity has ever generated.”

― Jonathan Zittrain

“We face paired dangers. The first is that our networks are successfully attacked. The second is that our fear of attack will cause us to destroy what makes the Internet special.”

“Sadly, many in our world today encourage idleness, especially in the form of mindless, inane entertainment that is on the Internet, on television, and in computer games.”

― Joseph B. Wirthlin

“That is very different from how it used to be in the 20th century. Media was very one way. There’s a small little industry. It broadcasted its message and everyone else in the world just had to listen. Now the internet is allowing what used to be a monologue to become a dialogue. I think that’s healthy and actually restoring a more natural way.”

― Joseph Gordon-Levitt

“The Internet is allowing us to get back to what’s really more natural, which is that storytelling is a shared thing. It’s our natural way to be communal.”

You can cut out the middle man like the fan club… before a recent appearance in Tyler, Texas, I had fans reaching out on MySpace offering their lake house, Mavericks tickets. It was amazing.”

― Josh Henderson

― Joss Whedon

“The Internet community started forming right when ‘Buffy’ started airing, and the notion of a show creator being anything other than a name people recognize on the screen was completely new.”

― Joss Whedon

― Julia Holter

“Scotland is so gorgeous that every time I’m there, I start to dream of living there. I want to buy one of those whitewashed cottages with the thatch roofs and gaze out at the sea and read my books. I want to be away from the Internet and the news and lawn mowers at 7 A.M. on Sunday mornings.”

― Julia London

“I love the efficiency of the Internet. If I come across something that I want to share right away, I can do it.”

― Julia Restoin Roitfeld

“What podcasts can do in order to liven up the talk show area of TV is bring new personalities and unique worldviews into the fray in a way that’s not going to be filtered through the whole Q-rating thing.

“The most important thing for people to understand is that the basic rule that people have a right to send information over the Internet – even when they are using a wireless device – is part of the framework.”

― Julius Genachowski

“I have been a strong supporter of a free and open Internet and have indicated this both prior to and subsequent to being sworn in as chairman of the F.C.C.

― Karamo Brown

“When I had dial-up, my mom got me a phone so I wouldn’t tie up the phone. She used to really pick up the phone, push some buttons, and hang it up so the connection could mess up. Now, it’s a joke with her, like, ‘Look, the Internet’s 24/7. I have WiFi now.’”

“Berners-Lee started the World Wide Web as a set of protocols for transferring, linking and addressing documents to send over the Net. Without the global reach and open technical standards of the Internet, the Web could never have proliferated as it did.”

― Katie Hafner

“Using the HTTP protocol, computer scientists around the world began making the Internet easier to navigate by inventing point-and-click browsers. One browser in particular, called Mosaic, created in 1993 at the University of Illinois, would help popularize the Web, and therefore the Net, as no software tool had yet done.”

― Kelela

“I think fans going to concerts expect more today in terms of meeting and things. It’s cool – I get it because of how the Internet has made things much more personal for fans to follow with Facebook, Twitter and everything – but I also think it’s kind of hindering because it takes from the music in a way.”

― Kevin Gates

“I promise you, I will have something on the Internet that is game-changing. I can’t lose.”

“AIR grew out of our early thinking about rich Internet applications around 2001. We started to see web developers pushing the boundaries of what could be done inside the browser and taking advantage of Flash in ways that we hadn’t expected.”

― Kevin Lynch

“Just like the Internet has transformed the media industry or the e-commerce industry, the software industry is also being affected dramatically by the Internet.”

― Kevin Macdonald

“The Internet is like the phone. To be without it is ridiculous.”

“If the only way a library can offer an Internet exhibit about the New Deal is to hire a lawyer to clear the rights to every image and sound, then the copyright system is burdening creativity in a way that has never been seen before because there are no formalities.”

― Lawrence Lessig

“The rise of a ubiquitous Internet, along with 24-hour news channels has, in some sense, had the opposite effect from what many might have hoped such free and open access to information would have had. It has instead provided free and open access, without the traditional media filters, to a barrage of disinformation.”

― Lawrence M. Krauss

“The Internet is a clear example of how our lives have changed in ways we couldn’t have imagined: a distributed information source, which is invisible to everyone, where you can access anything, and it’s distributed throughout the whole world. Basically, communication is instantaneous.”

― Leslie Moonves

― Lily Cole

“Yeah, I could get an internet page and maybe get a thousand downloads of new songs but it’s a lot of work. I’m 57 now, I really feel like I’ve got the T-shirt. I just like performing. It’s instant. I go off, I do the show, it’s over. I like that.”

― Limahl

“I’m so grateful that the Internet and the DVD came along because, otherwise, something like ‘Freaks And Geeks’ would have been dead. At the time we made the show, those avenues weren’t really available, and the idea of the show carrying on after it was canceled was something that didn’t really happen.”

― Linda Cardellini

“I wanted to go back to writing for myself and my fans. I built my own recording studio, started my own label, and decided to use the Internet to sell my records.”

― Linda Perry

“I was the last person to get high-speed Internet, I was the last person to get an iPod, the last person to get an iPhone… I travel to India for one month out of the year and I don’t have a phone there, so I can go without, which is beautiful, too.”

― Lindsey McKeon

“I’m perfectly happy complaining, because it’s cathartic, and I’m perfectly happy arguing with people on the Internet because arguing is my favourite pastime – not programming.”

― Linus Torvalds

“People enjoy the interaction on the Internet, and the feeling of belonging to a group that does something interesting: that’s how some software projects are born.”

― Linus Torvalds

“The advent of the Internet exposed the fact that the old business model for newspapers was broken. The world wide web fundamentally changed the media eco-system, challenging established journalistic practice in what is known as the mainstream media: radio, television, newspapers and magazines.”

― Lionel Barber

“Characters written in 1990 would be acting like idiots if they were cast into the present. For example, the reader might wonder: Why isn’t she texting? Where’s her cellphone? Can’t she have a simple paternity test? For God’s sake, look on the Internet and check him out!”

― Lisa Jackson

“The Internet is truly God’s gift to the Chinese people.”

― Liu Xiaobo

“When I use the Internet, it’s pretty much strictly for music. Checking out other people’s web sites, what’s going on, listening to music. It’s pretty much a musical thing for me.”

― Liz Phair

“It seems to me like the Internet allows you to break that structure a little bit. You know, here’s your CD that’s going into stores, here’s your EP that you offer online, here’s a subscription for songs you recorded on the road, here’s your live stuff streaming.”

― Liz Phair

“My first job in acting was in a Scott Baio movie called ‘I Love N.Y.’ My role was Italian Girl. I sent my 8×10 to a casting agent in the booklet, ‘The Ross Report,’ which is where all the agents were listed before that little thing called the Internet. I read for this tiny part. I couldn’t have been more excited to get it.”

― Liz Tuccillo

“I hope that all new filmmakers see that the Internet and social media are helpful tools in establishing a fan base as well as being able to interact with your fans.”

― Lloyd Kaufman

“I think it would be impossible not to be an Internet kid, coming from New Zealand, because culturally it’s a little barren.”

― Lorde

“The fundamental issue is: In the world of the Internet, is there a place for a packager of services? Does the customer want to go surf the Net and go to every one of 50,000 Web sites? Or will people pay a reasonable amount for somebody to go out and preselect and package what they want? My guess is they will both coexist.”

― Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

“The nature of the internet is that you don’t know who is behind the screen.”

― Louise Mensch

“I try to stop my students doing random things on the Internet or putting work online. It doesn’t get them jobs. This concept of being noticed, I don’t know what it brings you.”

― Louise Wilson

“As I look forward in things like the Internet of Things, I am sure we will talk about video. There is a lot of disruption going on and a lot of new products being brought to market, products like Go90.”

“The cool thing about the Internet now is it’s democratized platforms. Like, anybody can create a blog. Anybody can give themselves some type of place where their work is visible.”

― Luvvie Ajayi

“If you have a business website, make it stickier; redo the merchandising often and try new things until you hit the right homepage… then try and beat that. The most important audience drivers on the Internet are paid search and key word optimization. Concentrate on those. They are very inexpensive compared to banner advertising.”

― Lynda Resnick

“Since the advent of the Internet – more recently compounded by blogging – everyone can be a published voice. Any cowardly, anonymous anger-monger can have an audience of thousands. That doesn’t make them a journalist any more than my throwing an onion and a few carrots into a pot of boiling water makes me Julia Child.”

― Lynda Resnick

“Some of the most innocuous inventions have proven earth-shattering, with reverberations felt around the planet. The Internet is the poster child for disruptive technology, but even such inventions as Amazon’s Kindle and Apple’s iPod have rocked their respective industries by changing how we entertain ourselves.”

― Lynda Resnick

“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.”

“I made a lot of not-so-fashionable choices in my life. I see all of those photos that are on the Internet forever.”

“I think every Internet user likes personalization.”

― Ma Huateng

“The way I’m portrayed on the Internet is partly my doing, but it’s partly the people that are presenting it so, you know, people come to know this strange version of a human. It can be pretty weird because people think I’m digging through dumpsters and smell like crap all the time.”

― Mac DeMarco

“Being famous has changed a lot, because now there’s so many outlets, between magazines, TV shows, and the Internet, for people to stalk and follow you. We created the monster.”

“Investors have finally woken up to the fact that there is something called the ‘Russian Internet’ into which you can invest.”

― Maelle Gavet

“I like that in ‘Caprica’ the virtual world is a new thing. The parents didn’t have that growing up. And it’s the same thing about the Internet and all the current technology. It didn’t exist like it does now for our parents’ generation. Kids aren’t relating to their parents anymore, and I just find that so honest.”

― Magda Apanowicz

“The reality is my career started with a song that wasn’t finished and a video I didn’t know was going on the Internet. It happened so out of my control.”

“When the people believe that the print media and the government-controlled TV are not really reporting what is happening, then people turn away from them, and their next resort is, of course, to access the Internet and what they can get on the Internet.”

“Over two billion people now use the broadband Internet, up from perhaps 50 million a decade ago, when I was at Netscape, the company I co-founded.”

― Marc Andreessen

“Once you understand that everybody’s going to get connected, a lot of things follow from that. If everybody gets the Internet, they end up with a browser, so they look at web pages – but they can also leave comments, create web pages. They can even host their own server! So not only is everybody consuming, they can also produce.”

― Marc Andreessen

“TV and the press have always functioned according to the same sets of rules and technical standards. But the Internet is based on software. And anybody can write a new piece of software on the Internet that years later a billion people are using.”

― Marc Andreessen

“A lot of things you want to do as part of daily life can now be done over the Internet.”

― Marc Andreessen

“Around ’93, ’94, the conventional wisdom about the Internet was that it was a toy for academics and researchers. So it was very, very underestimated for about two years.”

― Marc Andreessen

“I would say the consumer Internet companies – in a lot of ways, if you go inside the consumer Internet companies and you see how they run, it’s how all their businesses are going to run.”

― Marc Andreessen

“That’s one of the perks of my job, is getting to see what the Internet does.”

― Marc Guggenheim

“I don’t want to read a book on a device. I like a book with a hard cover and text on a piece of paper. I like magazines. I don’t care if I carry around 100 lbs. of magazines; I’d rather do that than look at them on the Internet.”

“’Doom’ aficionados expand their adventures as far as their imaginations and artistic abilities allow. Once players have exhausted the ‘authorized’ levels of ‘Doom,’ they can go on to explore thousands of additional unauthorized levels available in kits and on the Internet.”

“The Internet has usurped the collective unconscious and access to cosmic consciousness has become difficult and almost primitive.”

― Marc Maron

“Domain names and websites are Internet real estate.”

― Marc Ostrofsky

“The number of small businesses in the United States totals about 25 million. Because most of these have a local trading territory, relatively few advertise online. Online advertising reaches the masses of the Internet world, whether they are local or not.”

― Marc Ostrofsky

“I ended up buying business.com for $150,000 because I wanted to make it a magazine. It would have been a ‘Time’-type magazine: how to do business on the Internet. And I was offered a lot of money for that domain. I played two buyers against each other.”

“There are hundreds of ways to make money using the Internet.”

“You hear doom and gloom about the Internet ruining young people’s command of English – that’s nonsense.”

“If I have to spend a lot of time on planes, I try to think of this as time off. In certain ways, it’s more restful than home: no Internet, no phones, no interruptions.”

“I’m not really part of the Internet world, my age a factor in that and a lack of interest in sharing with so many, so little, so much, so often.”

― Margaret Trudeau

“I do occasionally get into that ‘checking Twitter every five minutes’ state – ‘Please, help me avoid my work.’ I have a writing room for when I get completely out of control, so I can put myself out of the Internet’s reach.”

“I’m quite enthusiastic about any kind of gadget and app and feature and things that enable me to have a very convenient lifestyle. We buy our groceries on the Internet; I buy furniture, clothes for myself and my kids.”

― Margrethe Vestager

“The Internet makes everything much less mysterious.”

― Maria Bamford

“With the Internet, we can communicate instantly across the globe, but the net also makes it possible for us to shrink ever further into our own skins – a state of being that neither suits the human temperament nor provides ground for further growth.”

― Mariella Frostrup

“I’m addicted to email, but other than that, there are practical things – being able to buy a book on the internet that you can’t find in your local bookshop. This could be a lifeline if you live further from the sources.”

― Marilyn Hacker

“The advantage of the internet is that it has taken away the charade of politics. China has heard of democracy and people know about certain concepts they wouldn’t have previously.”

“I think that there is a generational change, where new generations that have grown up always having access to the internet have a somewhat different view in terms of personal information and what needs to be kept private.”

― Marissa Mayer

“The internet creates more of an appetite for media – it doesn’t replace physical books, radio or TV.”

― Marissa Mayer

“The world is changing, and the Internet is about to become the next broadcast network.”

― Mark Burnett

“We can’t ever forget that the Internet now is just a staid utility. The exciting platforms are software applications that are very, very simple.”

― Mark Cuban

“He told me I didn’t understand, that we were from the bleak industrial wastes of North England, or something, and that we didn’t understand the Internet. I told him Fall fans invented the Internet. They were on there in 1982.”

― Mark E. Smith

“Dear Internet: You are very good at spreading rumors. Truth is more valuable and much harder to come by.”

― Mark Frost

“’Creative Commons’ is the self-congratulatory name of a self-congratulatory movement. Somewhat like kibbutz on the Internet, the idea is to write programs – ‘free ware’ – and distribute them without charge.”

“The Internet is a great information tool, and can be a place where kids learn, but we must remember that when kids are online, they are in public.”

― Mark Kirk

“I don’t do much research on the Internet.”

― Mark Kurlansky

“We’re busy people; we need media that’s multitask-able. I want games I can play while I’m watching television. 70% of Americans are on the Internet while they watch TV. We all multitask now, and we need media to reflect that.”

― Mark Pincus

“I’ve never Googled myself on the Internet.”

― Mark Ruffalo

“I’m still struggling with whether I might want to get off the Internet. More and more people I know have. Daniel Day Lewis doesn’t do the Internet at all, and I noticed he had many more books open around his house.”

― Mark Rylance

“There is a reductive nature to the Internet, and it’s not limited to comic book news sites and stuff: it’s everybody. There is a reductive nature of it, by which anything that’s said very quickly gets reduced down to the next. Reduced, reduced, reduced to the point where rumors with some sense of nuance to them just become fact.”

― Mark Waid

“Industrialisation, mass transit, and the Internet are technological revolutions that have reshaped lives, nations, and the planet.”

― Mark Walport

“We know that for every 1 person who get access to the Internet, one new job gets created, and one person gets lifted out of poverty. So in theory, going and connecting everyone on the Internet is a large national and even global priority.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“I hope that Facebook and other Internet technologies were able to help people, just like we hope that we help them communicate and organize and do whatever they want to every single day, but I don’t pretend that if Facebook didn’t exist, that this wouldn’t even be possible. Of course, it would have.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they’re thinking and have their voice be heard.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn’t have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they’re thinking and have their voice be heard.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“If you grew up, and you never had a computer, and you’ve never used the Internet, and someone asked you if you wanted to buy a data plan, your response would be ‘What’s a data plan, and why would I want to use this?’”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“The majority of people who don’t have Internet, don’t have the Internet because they don’t know why they want to use the Internet.”

― Mark Zuckerberg

“What we figured out was that in order to get everyone in the world to have basic access to the Internet, that’s a problem that’s probably billions of dollars. Or maybe low tens of billions. With the right innovation, that’s actually within the range of affordability.”

“We want to make it so that anyone, anywhere – a child growing up in rural India who never had a computer – can go to a store, get a phone, get online, and get access to all of the same things that you and I appreciate about the Internet.”

“Today, it is clear that Internet organizing is vital to our future success.”

― Martin Frost

“The Internet has been seen in the West as the quintessential expression of the free exchange of ideas and information, untrammeled by government interference and increasingly global in reach. But the Chinese government has shown that the Internet can be successfully filtered and controlled.”

― Martin Jacques

“China’s Internet will continue to be policed and controlled, information filtered, sites prohibited, noncompliant search engines excluded, and sensitive search words disallowed. And where China goes, others, also informed by different values, are already and will follow.”

“From the growth of the Internet through to the mapping of the human genome and our understanding of the human brain, the more we understand, the more there seems to be for us to explore.”

“It’s weird how the Internet changes everything. The kind of narrow casting… instead of reaching for a broad audience, you are reaching for a more targeted audience.”

― Martine Syms

“Congress created a safe harbor for defamation in 1996 and for copyright in 1998. Both safe harbors were designed to ensure that the Internet would remain a participatory medium of speech.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Net neutrality sounds wonky and technical but is actually quite simple. It would keep the Internet as it has always been – cable and phone companies would remain mere gateways to all sites, rather than gatekeepers determining where users can go and what innovators can offer them.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all traffic that goes through their networks the same, not offering preferential treatment to some websites over others or charging some companies arbitrary fees to reach users.”

― Marvin Ammori

“On the Internet, speed matters. According to research by Microsoft, Google, and others, if a website is even 250 milliseconds slower than a rival, people will visit it less often.”

― Marvin Ammori

“I have worked on open Internet, speech, and entrepreneurship issues for years.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Any ‘network neutrality’ rule should be designed to forbid phone or cable companies from controlling the Internet.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Evidence and economic theory suggests that control of the Internet by the phone and cable companies would lead to blocking of competing technologies.”

“President Obama is a big supporter of keeping the Internet open. During his presidential campaign, he pledged his support to net neutrality repeatedly.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Net neutrality is the right thing for our democracy, economy, and global competitiveness. And Americans support an open Internet.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The FCC banned throttling for good reason, namely that Internet service providers should not bias their networks toward some applications or classes of applications. Biasing the network interferes with user choice, innovation, decisions of application makers, and the competitive marketplace.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Even though the Internet touches every part of our lives, one person is to blame for potentially destroying its potential for innovation and freedom of expression: former FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.”

― Marvin Ammori

“’Network neutrality’ is sometimes called ‘Internet freedom’ or ‘Internet openness’ and is a legal principle that would forbid cable and phone companies like AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast from blocking some websites or providing special priority to others.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Charter’s merger sales pitch is pretty straightforward: it argues that it has always been too small to bully Internet companies, TV makers, and its own customers, so it has’un-cable’ practices they hope to extend.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Broadband companies can have great success offering access to the unfettered Internet.”

― Marvin Ammori

“As each year and debate passes, more broadband companies will start to see that their future lies not in restricting an open Internet but in betting on it.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The Internet freedom issue we need to focus on is network neutrality.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The Open Internet principles were not legal rules adopted by the FCC; they were effectively a press statement posted on the FCC website.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The CEO of AT&T told an interviewer back in 2005 that he wanted to introduce a new business model to the Internet: charging companies like Google and Yahoo! to reliably reach Internet users on the AT&T network.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The Internet is one of the most revolutionary technologies the world has ever known. It has given us an entire universe of information in our pockets.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Public participation helped create the Internet, and it helps protect it. That’s worth celebrating and remembering.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The Internet isn’t just itself a revolution – it sometimes starts them, too.”

― Marvin Ammori

“The FCC sided with the public and adopted extremely strong net neutrality rules that should be a global model for Internet freedom.”

― Marvin Ammori

“A rule against paid fast lanes would encourage additional capacity; a rule permitting paid fast lanes would simply encourage cable companies to create congested slow lanes on the Internet so they could make money by selling fast lanes to big companies.”

― Marvin Ammori

“Internet users should be able to choose where to go online and which applications to use. Comcast, say, shouldn’t be allowed to block Skype just because it could siphon the communications giant’s telephone business.”

― Marvin Ammori

“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

“In 2011, mobile data traffic in the United States was eight times the size of the entire global Internet in 2000. That’s traffic.”

― Marvin Ammori

“For years, my colleagues and I – primarily Republicans but also some Democrats – have introduced legislation and written to the FCC asking the commission to cease attempts to regulate the Internet unless given the clear authority to do so by Congress.”

― Mary Bono

“The Internet is a bright spot for our struggling economy and functioning just fine without what amounts to a federal pat-down of the inner workings of the Internet.”

― Mary Bono

“At its core, the FCC’s plan to regulate the Internet will force businesses and people to check first with the government and get permission to innovate.”

― Mary Bono

“I don’t think that the Internet creates feelings that aren’t there, nor does it provide an outlet. On the contrary, what I have thought about things like computer games – what has disturbed me about them – is that they appear to stimulate feelings of aggression without providing any physical release.”

― Mary Gaitskill

“I deleted all the games from my computer. I spent days trawling the Internet. I started slowly.”

― Mary Garden

“I commit words to paper and the Internet for everyone to pick apart, so I think I tend to be a lot more cynical and dulled.”

“The thing that I find interesting about teens now is that no matter how desperate we seem to be taxonomically ‘othering’ them, for one reason or another – because the Internet, because whatever – I feel like a lot of the benchmarks and the experiences are, you know, same for teens through time immemorial.”

― Mary H.K. Choi

“Could you imagine if we could leapfrog language and communicate directly with human thought? What would we be capable of then? And how will we learn to deal with the truths of unfiltered human thought? You think the Internet was big. These are huge questions.”

“Back in the year 2000, most of the Internet companies were not making any money.”

“There won’t be editors in the future with the Internet world, with citizen reporting. That doesn’t scare me.”

― Matt Drudge

“The Internet feeds off the main press, and the main press feeds off the Internet. They’re working in tandem.”

― Matt Drudge

“There’s a danger of the Internet just becoming loud, ugly and boring with a thousand voices screaming for attention.”

― Matt Drudge

“If the first lady is concerned about this Internet cycle, what would she have done during the heyday when there was 12, 13 editions of a paper in one day? What would she have done with that news cycle?”

― Matt Drudge

“If we ever head down the American path of banning certain books or turning the editorial process into one of censorship, we will risk turning teens off books and sending them elsewhere – to their X-Boxes, for instance. To the Internet. And they won’t ever come back to books.”

― Matt Haig

“If it wasn’t for the Internet, I might never have left WWE. Then again, if it wasn’t for the Internet, I probably wouldn’t have been brought back.”

― Matt Hardy

“There’s so much information accessible to everyone now because the Internet is so powerful; social media is so powerful.”

― Matt Hardy

“Captcha is the bane of the Internet. I can’t figure them out myself half the time!”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Before the widespread rise of the Internet and easy publishing tools, influence was largely in the hands of those who could reach the widest audience, the people with printing presses or access to a wide audience on television or radio, all one-way mediums that concentrated power in the hands of the few.”

― Matt Mullenweg

“Nowadays, ideas can meet and mate very much faster than before, and the Internet is only accelerating this process. So innovation is bound to accelerate.”

― Matt Ridley

“I just get my news from the Internet.”

― Matt Stone

“The print magazine and print journalism industry is obviously in a great deal of trouble, and one of the things that happened when this business started to give way to the Internet and to broadcast television is that a lot of organizations started cutting specifically investigative journalism and they also started cutting fact-checkers.”

― Matt Taibbi

“I’ve just found out there are pages on the internet dedicated to whether I’m gay or not.”

― Matthew Perry

“Advertising at its worst will be killed by the Internet. And rightly so.”

― Maurice Saatchi

“I don’t look on the Internet; it’s a world of pain.”

― Max Irons

“I don’t think the Internet is necessarily a dangerous place. It’s only dangerous if you don’t make people earn your trust. You can’t take people at their word. You got to do a little digging and make sure to verify that you are talking to a real person or the person that you think you’re talking to.”

― Max Joseph

“The safest person, sometimes, is a stranger on the Internet who lives in a different place. If they’re a daily source of support and advice, no one really wants to lose that once they have it. If they know deep down that the person they’re talking to isn’t exactly who they say they are, it’s not worth finding out.”

― Max Joseph

“As more wealth and political power is amassed – as bitcoins rise in value – Congress and various lobbying groups will be influenced to an ever greater extent by the interests of Bitcoin owners who – in turn – will lobby to keep the Internet and Bitcoin alive and growing.”

― Max Keiser

“Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer, decentralized form of money, as durable as the Internet itself. Remember, the Internet – or DARPA, as it was originally called – was created as a fail-safe, global network with no ‘single point of failure.’ If one part goes down, data takes another route, and nothing is lost.”

― Max Keiser

“Starting in the mid-1990s, the end-to-end ubiquity of the Internet, combined with its cheapness, spontaneously combusted to give us Napster – a site that revolutionized the music industry overnight. We got P2P file swapping in the film and TV industry as well.”

― Max Keiser

“I’m one of those people that thinks the Internet is amazing, and I can’t believe it exists.”

― Mayim Bialik

“We all know how the Internet has changed the lives of consumers: it’s changed how we communicate, how we shop, how we meet people. It’s changed things for businesses too.”

― Maynard Webb

“I gotta keep hustling. I know when it comes to the Internet, we move units. I grew up on the Internet.”

― Meek Mill

“It is very clear that voice communications is moving on to the Internet. In the end, the price that anyone can provide for voice transmission on the Net will trend toward zero.”

― Meg Whitman

“Net neutrality is such an important principle for the Web and for the Internet. It’s how the Internet’s operated for all this time.”

― Megan Smith

“I think people seem to want to read pieces that are shorter but not as short as the pieces they can read in small bites on the Internet. It may be that the sort of long essays are hitting a sweet spot between the tiny morsels online and the full-length book.”

― Meghan Daum

“My generation grew up in the heyday of the ’90s, with the Internet boom and the birth of overnight millionaires. But our politicians seem to be pushing personal agendas over the idea of making the world a better place for their children.”

― Meghan McCain

“I stay off the Internet, because I’m very sensitive to commentary. There could be 10 comments of ‘Fabulous job!’ and one ‘She’s horrible!’ and it completely throws me.”

― Melissa Rosenberg

“Digital currencies present a chance for money to truly become information, and for the creation of a global financial system that is truly frictionless, open, and uncensored – the vision we once had for the Internet.”

― Meltem Demirors

“Cuba is a nation stuck in time, and the regime’s complete control of businesses, the press and the Internet has kept the Cuban people from advancing and achieving their dreams.”

― Mercedes Schlapp

“It has been aptly noted that web browsers are less Internet navigation tools than they are ebooks with highly diverse content.”

― Michael A. Stackpole

“Talking about Apple v. Microsoft without mentioning the Internet and the browser is like talking about WWII without talking about the nuke. Framing the conversation just in terms of open v. closed operating systems, the quality of the hardware or software or who the CEO was, is silly.”

― Michael Arrington

“Before the Internet, all most people cared about was Office. And Office was really the only reason anyone wanted Windows machines instead of Macs.”

― Michael Arrington

“A lot of music fans are still interested in insightful perspectives on music – maybe even more interested than ever, since everyone needs help making sense of the incredible variety of sounds that have sprung up in the wake of the Internet revolution. There’s a lot of room for unique, qualified voices who can provide good reads.”

― Michael Azerrad

“I think the thing that bothers me is that there’s a component of the Internet where people can write really nasty things anonymously.”

― Michael Bacon

“With the internet, things are so much more immediate. People taste-test things to see if they want to buy the CD.”

― Michael Bolton

“I think there’d be huge losses if there weren’t newspapers. I know everything’s shifting to the Internet and some people would say, ‘News is news, what you’re talking about is a change of consumption, not the product that’s out there.’ But I think there is a change.”

― Michael Connelly

“There should be a background check every time a firearm is transferred. You shouldn’t be able to go to a gun show and buy guns without a background check. There are Internet gun sales, classified ads in the newspapers – and you can buy guns without background checks.”

― Michael D. Barnes

“In an odd sort of way, the computer and the Internet is the hermit’s ideal form of communication. You don’t have to see anyone. To send an email, you don’t have to talk to anyone. You can just send it, and they’ll read it on their own. The Internet has been really good for hermits.”

― Michael Finkel

“The Internet is fundamentally free, and when faced with the decision to use something free, we, as humans, always seek to grab all we can.”

― Michael Gerber

“The Internet’s a crazy place to hang out because it’s insane to see so many people doing so many creative things all over the map.”

― Michael Giacchino

“The U.S. has more broadband subscribers than any country other than China. Americans rank at the top in their use of the web, and numerous studies validate that the U.S. is a global innovation powerhouse. The leading Internet and e-commerce companies are located here.”

― Michael K. Powell

“Unlike the phone system, which is engineered around an application, the Internet layered model allows you to, in essence, separate applications from infrastructure.”

― Michael K. Powell

“I love my DSL, but I love my WiFi more. And I probably get on the Internet 40 percent to 50 percent more because of the combination of those technologies.”

― Michael K. Powell

“The industry must adhere to certain consumer protection norms if the Internet is to remain an open platform for innovation.”

― Michael K. Powell

“We worry a lot about ISIS traveling overseas from Syria to the United States, but I think one of the greatest fears are those already within the U.S. who are being radicalized and inspired by the ISIS propaganda that’s out there on the Internet.”

― Michael McCaul

“I am extremely concerned that Syrian and ISIS recruiters can use the Internet at lightning speeds to recruit followers in the United States with thousands of followers in the United States and then activate them to do whatever they want to do.”

― Michael McCaul

“Now we’re dealing with a younger generation of terrorists that are very, very savvy with computer skills, very savvy over the Internet, and very savvy with social media of the likes that we have never seen before.”

― Michael McCaul

“200,000 ISIS tweets a day, 1,000 investigations in all 50 states. It’s really hard to stop all of it. But we have to get control over this Internet propaganda that is poisoning the minds of the United States.”

― Michael McCaul

“What I’m concerned about are two things. I think one that John Miller talked about, and that’s the radicalization over the Internet that ISIS is very adept at doing. The other one is a foreign fighter threat.”

― Michael McCaul

“I’m over here with the French counterterrorism experts talking about the ‘Charlie Hebdo’ case, how we can stop foreign fighters from coming out of Iraq and Syria to Europe, but then we have this phenomenon in the United States where they can be activated by the Internet, and, really, terrorism has gone viral.”

― Michael McCaul

“The threat is real, and it comes from the Internet. This is a new generation of terrorist. This is not Bin Laden in caves with couriers anymore. This is what the new threat of terrorism looks like.”

― Michael McCaul

“A newspaper is a public trust, and we will suffer as a society without them. It is not the Internet that has killed them. It is their own greed, it is their own stupidity, and it is capitalism that has taken our daily newspapers from us.”

― Michael Moore

“Once the smoke of the market crash clears off, you know, the Internet will pick back up and go. Take a look at what’s happening to some of the big companies like eBay and Yahoo, the publicly traded stocks. You know, they’re all coming back up off the mat now.”

― Michael Nesmith

“The rock sitting on the shelf has potential because it can fall-it’s the same way with the Internet. It has this potential. It’s not really doing it yet, but it’s about to.”

― Michael Nesmith

“The Internet provides the access to resources, so it’s incumbent upon the people who control those resources to make sure that the economic engine stays intact.”

― Michael Nesmith

“You have to have access to ideas. The Internet is facilitating that access to ideas. In 25 years, the way that data’s going to flow back and forth, we don’t quite understand yet.”

― Michael Nesmith

“The Internet is the greatest thing that ever happened to the entertainment industry.”

― Michael Ovitz

“But the power of science lies in open publication, which, with the rise of the Internet, is no longer constrained by the price of paper.”

― Michael Shermer

“Newspapers and magazines have been valuable to us precisely because they apply filters to information, otherwise known as editing, and often the Internet seems valuable for exactly the opposite reason: You can get your news without a filter.”

― Michael Specter

“Given its Internet sophistication and the attraction the group has with vast numbers of potential recruits from among disaffected populations around the globe, ISIS has the realistic potential to eventually swell its ranks of jihadists waging a ‘holy war’ to hundreds of thousands in both the western and eastern hemispheres.”

― Michael T. Flynn

“The minute we became a global society, especially now that we’re all connected up with the Internet, people wanted to believe in something a little more interesting than their earthbound lives.”

― Michael T. Weiss

“I joined an Internet community of Victorian scholars, which meant that if I posted a question about 1875’s lavender harvest, more than a thousand experts would ponder it.”

― Michel Faber

“That’s what the internet is: it’s like bombarding your eyeballs with these myriad blinking colour lights. It’s like trying to watch a movie on your phone in the middle of Times Square.”

― Michel Gondry

“The ‘World Wide Web’, as people quaintly called the Internet in 1996, was more or less made up of text. There was no YouTube. There was no Facebook. There was, however, Usenet, a loose and difficult-to-navigate assortment of message boards.”

― Michelle Dean

“Since the era of ‘Sherlock Holmes,’ private detectives had long been able to influence cases on their own. But the online detective, who had no sort of professional training or even long practice, is a purely modern phenomenon. The Internet changed everything by letting anyone become a self-appointed ‘expert’ on a case.”

― Michelle Dean

“When bureaucrats talk about increasing our ‘access’ to x, y or z, what they’re really talking about is increasing exponentially their control over our lives. As it is with the government health care takeover, so it is with the newly approved government plan to ‘increase’ Internet ‘access.’”

― Michelle Malkin

“I delve into cold cases by scouring the Internet for any digital crumbs authorities may have overlooked, then share my theories with the 8,000 or so mystery buffs who visit my blog regularly.”

― Michelle McNamara

“I don’t use the Internet, as I don’t like living with lots of distractions. I have tried, but I found it a hindrance. as my sense of priorities goes out of the window and it pulls me out of my writing, particularly with email. I’d sit there for hours just replying to emails.”

― Michelle Paver

“We’re living in an age where we should be collaborating. Because it’s the Internet now. It’s hard to say who owns what.”

― Michelle Phan

“The Internet is where you can find people who are authentic.”

― Michelle Phan

“It’s no longer the older paradigm of, ‘I want to own this market, and no one else can own this market because I own this market.’ The Internet has made the market limitless.”

― Michelle Phan

“The Internet opens a lot of doors to those who are passionate.”

― Michelle Phan

“In the future, the Internet might become a ‘brain net’ where we send memories, feelings and sensations.”

― Michio Kaku

“My point is, no one can stop the Internet. No one can stop that march. It doesn’t mean that it’s going to be smooth, though.”

― Michio Kaku

“Remember the movie ‘The Matrix,’ where virtual information popped up to help inform physical day-to-day reality? Such things won’t always be the stuff of Hollywood. If the Internet is accessible via contact lenses, biographies will appear next to the faces of the people we talk to, and we will see subtitles if they speak a foreign language.”

― Michio Kaku

“I predict that technology will enable people to transmit their neuronal, actual feelings over the Internet.”

― Michio Kaku

“The Internet frees people to realize they don’t have to live like slaves.”

― Michio Kaku

“Even though ‘SmackDown’ has been kind of like the Internet darling, I believe that if they had three hours instead of two, they would find out that it’s tough to be a darling when you’ve got that massive three-hour anchor around your neck.”

― Mick Foley

“Newspapers and magazines didn’t want pictures of musicians behaving badly back then. Now, because of the Internet, that’s all the media wants.”

― Mick Rock

“Children who use the Internet are much better informed than when I was young. Use this to your advantage.”

― Miep Gies

“The Internet has given us an unlimited platform of knowledge and inspiration. Sometimes the most efficient way to create a new sound is to cross between genres and experiment with noises/tempos that wouldn’t normally go together.”

― Mija

“Now that digital lifestyle devices, tablets, wireless phones, and other Internet appliances are beginning to come of age, we need to worry about presenting our content to these devices so that it is optimized for their display capabilities.”

“The Internet has brought communities across the globe closer together through instant communication.”

― Mike Fitzpatrick

“Parents have the ability to screen their children’s Internet access at home.”

― Mike Fitzpatrick

“Make no mistake; child predation on the Internet is a growing problem.”

― Mike Fitzpatrick

“The freedom to connect to the world anywhere at anytime brings with it the threat of unscrupulous predators and criminals who mask their activities with the anonymity the Internet provides to its users.”

― Mike Fitzpatrick

“I was really excited by the idea that people were sharing information now and discovering information in a totally new way on the Internet via Twitter and Facebook, yet that experience was pretty clunk and just lots of bit.ly links.”

― Mike McCue

“The reality is, when I’m sitting in a hotel room at 3 in the morning, and I see something on the Internet that interests me in the form of a band I want to hear, I like the ability to just go online to iTunes and download it immediately.”

― Mike Portnoy

“I made a CD in my dorm room and put it on the Internet, and my friends blew it up. Within a few months, I was doing shows across the country without a record deal, without a single, without anything.”

― Mike Posner

“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

“Everything is being run by computers. Everything is reliant on these computers working. We have become very reliant on Internet, on basic things like electricity, obviously, on computers working. And this really is something which creates completely new problems for us. We must have some way of continuing to work even if computers fail.”

― Mikko Hypponen

“I see beauty in the future of the Internet, but I’m worried that we might not see that. I’m worried that we are running into problems because of online crime. Online crime is the one thing that might take these things away from us.”

― Mikko Hypponen

“You don’t even realise how much you need Internet, but it really stops you from doing a lot.”

― Millie Bobby Brown

“Perhaps what’s needed now is a bolder form of censure after all, because the Internet is not a universal human right. If people cannot be trusted to treat one another with respect, dignity and consideration, perhaps they deserve to have their online freedoms curtailed.”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“Media cycles end, but the Internet never forgets. This is a valuable lesson, especially for college students.”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“I’m an invention of the Internet. I’m like, the Internet went away for a few years and designed what the perfect online personality would look like and came back with me.”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“I enjoy upsetting the right people. I love poking fun at earnest censors. I want to push the bounds of what can be said on the Internet.”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“If the Internet, ubiquitous as it now is, proves too dangerous in the hands of the psychologically fragile, perhaps access to it ought to be restricted. We ban drunks from driving because they’re a danger to others. Isn’t it time we did the same to trolls?”

― Milo Yiannopoulos

“I think that the Internet is going to be one of the major forces for reducing the role of government. The one thing that’s missing, but that will soon be developed, is a reliable e-cash – a method whereby on the Internet you can transfer funds from A to B without A knowing B or B knowing A.”

― Milton Friedman

“The most important ways in which I think the Internet will affect the big issue is that it will make it more difficult for government to collect taxes.”

― Milton Friedman

“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

“Experience has shown us that attempts to control the Internet will invariably fail. We should be instructed by the failed efforts of China to regulate political content, the efforts of America to regulate Internet gambling, or the efforts of Australia to regulate certain speech. By its very nature, the Internet will always resist such controls.”

― Miriam Defensor-Santiago

“The Internet has fashioned a new and complicated environment for an age-old dilemma that pits the demands of security against the desire for freedom.”

― Misha Glenny

“Getting information off the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.”

― Mitch Kapor

“The Internet, the network of networks, is growing at an exponential pace. It’s growing so fast, in fact, nobody really knows how many people use the Internet.”

― Mitch Kapor

“There’s the classic charitable contribution, which we receive thousands, and we’re extremely grateful and they often come with notes from people, which are very heartwarming, about how much difference our products have made in their life on the Internet.”

― Mitchell Baker

“The Internet offers untold potential for humanity. To make the most of it, we need to think of the Internet as ‘ours.’”

― Mitchell Baker

“Saving the Internet requires a greater sense of shared ownership and fewer bystanders accepting whatever today’s Internet has to offer.”

― Mitchell Baker

“I have never done television, essentially, so the Internet has made me and opened avenues for me.”

― Mithila Palkar

“The Internet space will only grow exponentially, and it will affect TV for sure. How much is something that only time will tell.”

― Mithila Palkar

“’The Cup’ song did give a huge push, and after that, a lot of Internet happened. In the meantime, I was auditioning for many things, and ‘Karwan’ happened.”

― Mithila Palkar

“I’ve done over 100 auditions, but I was lucky to stumble onto the Internet as it was growing. Because in film, people are not looking at casting completely unknown faces as lead roles.”

― Mithila Palkar

“I have always played the cheerful girl next door, especially on the Internet, and this film is a break from that. My character is more moody and bratty in ‘Karwaan.’”

― Mithila Palkar

“At the risk of sounding pedestrian, I’ll be completely honest: the first thing I do in the morning is check Google News, partially because it seems sort of random and unbiased and partially because I tend to stay in hotels that don’t necessarily have the fastest Internet connections.”

― Moby

“Personally I find the democratic chaos of the Internet fascinating, and for the most part really benign.”

― Moby

“As people continue to do more and buy more over the Internet, continue to meet people over the Internet, connection speeds are going to get faster, and the Internet is just going to become an even more integral part of people’s lives.”

― Moby

“There seems to be no limit to the exciting possibilities that come from combining technical innovations, the Internet, and social media.”

― Mohamed El-Erian

“Young Egyptians, gazing through the windows of the Internet, have gained a keener sense than many of their elders of the freedoms and opportunities they lack. They have found in social media a way to interact and share ideas, bypassing, in virtual space, the restrictions placed on physical freedom of assembly.”

― Mohamed ElBaradei

“The Internet goes doot-doot-doot – it goes sideways. There’s nothing hierarchical about it. And the best thing about it is also the worst thing about it, which is there are no gatekeepers on the Internet. Consequently, there’s a whole lot of bad information on the Internet. But I think that sorts itself out over time.”

― Molly Ivins

“TV is changing in terms of how we are consuming sports. Appointment viewing no longer exists, as between social media and the Internet, people already have the news and can get the highlights – so now people want the opinions.”

― Molly Qerim

“I love to read. I don’t get enough time to read. I love reading the Internet. I love reading magazines. I love going on the ‘net.”

“I try to stay away from the Internet.”

― Morgan Saylor

“Mobile internet will be the single-most defining technology of this century for human development.”

― Mukesh Ambani

“Why will I not give free service to my customers to get them used to mobile Internet, and to get every small town and village to use it? Everybody does promotions. In the internet world, free is normal.”

― Mukesh Ambani

“From the artist’s standpoint, are you getting more from streaming than you used to, prior to the days of the Internet? No – and I don’t know if those days are ever going to come back – but at least, technically speaking, it’s the legal way to do it.”

― Myles Kennedy

“Fourth industrial revolution is a deadly combination of technology and Internet of Things.”

“In the space of one lifetime, the Internet has opened up opportunities that were previously inconceivable.”

“We don’t really even know how the Internet and technology are changing us, or our brains and our attention span.”

“I feel like I’m a child of the Internet, and the Internet has raised me, and its jokes might not be appropriate at certain times. So, I keep them locked inside.”

“It is important to distinguish between the power of the Internet to make the great change it can, and the limits and vulnerabilities of that change without real-time political mobilization deployed globally to protect those who venture out, especially in closed societies, into the heady new vistas it offers.”

― Naomi Wolf

“A utopian future for the Internet could be secured if the heavy-duty influencers – and the grassroots influencers tweeting along – can create a new global organization peopled with defenders of Internet freedom.”

― Naomi Wolf

“The Internet allows the small guy a global marketplace. But technology is harmful in the sense that we get too much information from it. Because of the web we get 10 times the amount of noise we ever got, which makes harmful fallacies far more likely.”

“I know I’m not a conventional beauty. You can read a lot of painful things on the Internet, which criticise you aesthetically – but as far as I’m concerned, that’s not what an actress is.”

“I was resistant to the Internet. I was afraid of it.”

“The techniques of being an Internet visionary are just like those of lower-tech fortunetellers through the ages. A technological visionary must tell people what they want to hear, because your company’s stock won’t rise if you spout an unpopular vision to analysts.”

― Nathan Myhrvold

“The magic words ‘on the Internet,’ if inserted into nearly any sentence, seem to protect it from normal critical scrutiny.”

― Nathan Myhrvold

“The Internet is the ultimate vanity-publishing medium, and therefore, the ultimate place for those of us who like to watch. The Internet can reach an audience at lower cost than any medium before it.”

“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

“Cryptocurrencies will create a fifth protocol layer powering the next generation of the Internet.”

― Naval Ravikant

“I think long-term, Bitcoin is a currency of the Internet. So, even if humans don’t use it, routers will use it. Web browsers will use it. Web servers will use it.”

― Naval Ravikant

“Cryptocurrencies are an emergent property of the Internet – almost a fifth protocol in the Internet suite. If Satoshi Nakomoto did not exist, it would still be necessary to invent them.”

― Naval Ravikant

“The Internet eco-system should be such that users should not pay for Internet connection, content, or anything that is basic.”

“Access to Internet and content should be free for users which can get accommodated by advertisements.”

― Naveen Tewari

“Of the three largest Internet markets – the U.S., India, and China – you will increasingly see Indian and Chinese companies partner.”

― Naveen Tewari

“PC Internet advertising and mobile advertising – there are some key differences. One, the ability to target is phenomenally high in the mobile space because the information… that one has about the kinds of things that you’re doing on the phone is better.”

“My favourite place to write is at my desk in my house in the mountains of Crete. I produce more there because one big distraction is missing: the Internet.”

“I can’t help thinking that if the American West were discovered today, the most glorious bits would be sold off to the highest bidder. Yosemite might be nothing but weekend homes for Internet tycoons.”

― Nicholas Negroponte

“Yahoo to me, as the founder of a company, is one of the biggest opportunities you could have; it’s one of those classic Internet companies.”

― Nick D’Aloisio

“Critics say Internet advertising suffers from limitless inventory, which depresses prices. These exclusive front-page sponsorships are not limitless. If HBO doesn’t move quickly enough, Showtime can buy out Gawker and Jezebel for the key fall TV season. On any individual day, there isn’t room for both of them; and that’s healthy.”

― Nick Denton

“I think people are sort of waking up to it now, how probably the biggest change in Internet media isn’t the immediacy of it, or the low costs, but the measurability. Which is actually terrifying if you’re a traditional journalist, and used to pushing what people ought to like, or what you think they ought to like.”

― Nick Denton

“I had just got back from skiing, and I was just hanging out, browsing the Internet, and I found some article that was a press release that said slope style was gonna be included in the Olympics. And the first thing I did was call up my coach Mike Hanley, and we were ecstatic.”

“In software, it’s easy to understand what people want, and it’s hard to build. Internet stuff is super easy to build, but it’s hard to know what people want.”

― Nick Hanauer

“An important part of the Internet is that it provides a space for people whose identities are socially unacceptable. If it enables someone who feels minoritised to be who they want to be, it’s actually worth having other people be offensive. I’d much rather have both than have neither.”

― Nick Harkaway

“The Internet has the capacity to extend to us genuine choice, and that is not without risk. Real power does entail real responsibility.”

― Nicole Polizzi

“You can’t trust the internet.”

― Nicollette Sheridan

“That’s the miracle of Amazon! It’s like Internet dating. In the early days, you could get slimed as an author on Amazon by someone bearing a grudge, or jealous, or whatever. And because there were so few reviews posted, this stank.”

“People need to access Skype wirelessly, no matter where they are, and what happens is that we’ll be taking advantage of the rollout of Internet everywhere – WiFi and WiMax in particular.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“What we are doing is taking advantage of the broadband Internet to provide basically unlimited free calls to anyone at a higher voice quality than they can with the phone lines.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“Skype is for any individual who has a broadband Internet connection.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“It is very similar to companies like Google and other internet companies. When you go and search on Google you don’t pay for that. But sometimes you click on an advert and Google makes money on that.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“Video is moving online in a big way. It’s proven to be a challenging market for some companies that start out as a pure Internet company such as Joost.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“Some Internet operators are concerned that video services such as Netflix and YouTube consume lots of the bandwidth on the network. While there is some truth to this, my guess is that the operators wished they could provide the same kind of services with the same success as Netflix and YouTube.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“You have 1 billion people using the Internet with 200 million of those now using broadband internet connections, so the Internet has become a powerful network. It can carry calls.”

“The thing about the Internet is the openness. People can link to each other themselves.”

― Niklas Zennstrom

“For so many years fashion was shrouded in mystery, this glamorous profession that people knew very little about, they thought it was so glamorous. It now has become so available, with the Internet, with shops like H&M and Target that do designer collaborations, so it’s more available to everyone and that’s created more interest.”

― Nina Garcia

“I’m not going to put my music up on some little corner of the Internet or give it away for free. What does that do? That’s just giving up. I’m not giving up, ever.”

“During the boom years of the 1990s, globalization emerged as the most significant development in our national life. With NAFTA and the Internet and big-box stores selling cheap goods from China, the line between national and international began to blur.”

― Noah Feldman

“As a research tool, the internet is invaluable.”

“When decentralized blockchain protocols start displacing the centralized web services that dominate the current Internet, we’ll start to see real internet-based sovereignty. The future Internet will be decentralized.”

― Olaf Carlson-Wee

“In a world with many blockchains and hundreds of tradable tokens built on top of them, entire industries are automated through software, venture capital and stock markets are circumvented, entrepreneurship is streamlined, and networks gain sovereignty through their own digital currency. This is the next phase of the Internet.”

― Olaf Carlson-Wee

“At one point I thought changing my name might help with privacy, but that was before the Internet.”

“Before we had the Internet, we would either call or write to our friends, one at a time, and keep up with their lives. It was a slow process and took a lot of effort and time to learn about each other.”

― Ory Okolloh

“Let’s make sure that the Internet stays open to those who need it the most.”

― Ory Okolloh

“For Ghana to suggest that they will turn off the Internet, in addition to other countries that have done it like Uganda, Zimbabwe, DRC, Burundi, Chad and others, that’s worrying.”

― Ory Okolloh

“Although I have no plans to tweet, I am fascinated by developments on the Internet.”

“I watched TV religiously when I was a kid, but nowadays – with the Internet – there’s so many people writing about TV on the Internet, that everything’s sort of under a magnifying glass.”

― Oscar Nunez

“TV ushered in the age of postliteracy. And we have gone so far beyond that. I mean, what with the Internet and Google and Wikipedia. We have entered the age of post-intelligence.”

― P. J. O’Rourke

“Public schools helped create the idea of America and inculcate Americans with a few rudiments of knowledge. To judge by that very American item, the Internet, a few rudiments is all anyone cares to have.”

― P. J. O’Rourke

“The first wave of the Internet was really about data transport. And we didn’t worry much about how much power we were consuming, how much cooling requirements were needed in the data centers, how big the data center is in terms of real estate. Those were almost afterthoughts.”

― Padmasree Warrior

“In the future, it’s going to move from being just a data transport to really becoming a media experience platform. The Internet will be more about media, more about collaboration, much more virtualized and much more green.”

― Padmasree Warrior

“In the past, before phones and the Internet, all communication was face-to-face. Now, most of it is digital, via emails and messaging services. If people were to start using virtual reality, it would almost come full circle.”

― Palmer Luckey

“The Internet really offered a space for me to thrive.”

― Paloma Elsesser

“You can’t regulate what these kids are being exposed to on the Internet. It’s so way out of control. All you can do is just try to talk to your own kids.”

“Leesa has been a partner of mine since I left the NFL and started doing this Internet business. They’ve been a company that has supported everything that I have going on.”

― Pat McAfee

“I travel to a lot of schools, and I see firsthand that while we do still have a lot of traditional readers, we don’t have as many as we used to. And we’re missing an awful lot of kids entirely… Do I want to get rid of the Internet? Obviously, I don’t want that because of all the amazing things it brings.”

― Patrick Carman

“The Internet has empowered us. It has empowered you, it has empowered me, and it has empowered some other guys as well.”

― Patrick Chappatte

“Square is turning informal, cash transactions, like you would do with a taco truck, into card swipes. Stripe is more for the Internet, it’s focused on the kinds of transactions that weren’t possible years ago. We think about how you would buy things from a mobile phone, crowd-funding, how should that work.”

― Patrick Collison

“Stripe makes it easy for anyone, be it an individual or a small business or a large business, to accept credit card payments on the Internet. We want to give control to the user or the business to define what the experience looks like. We work on a website or a mobile app, or whatever between that.”

― Patrick Collison

“One of the important lessons of the Internet is, how easy it is to get things done completely shapes what gets created. For that reason, technologies like Amazon’s cloud service are very important. Even if they aren’t technically impressive, they make things easy to do.”

― Patrick Collison

“I grew up in very rural Ireland. The Internet was kind of a connection to the greater world. It had a lot of significance.”

― Patrick Collison

“It was very clear, if you grew up in the middle of Ireland, just how potent a force the Internet was and could be. I was always seduced by the potency of computers and the possibilities for which they could be leveraged.”

― Patrick Collison

“The promise of the Internet is around this transcendence of physical geography. To a large degree, the Internet has delivered on that promise, but when it comes to the movement of money and the ability to start and operate a business or needing to purchase from a business, it really hasn’t.”

― Patrick Collison

“What interests us in Stripe is the idea that there could much more commerce happening on the Internet.”

― Patrick Collison

“Over the next decade, there will be disruption as significant as the Internet was for publishing, where blockchain is going to disrupt dozens of industries, one being capital markets and Wall Street.”

― Patrick M. Byrne

“You’re going to start seeing open-source, self-executing contracts gradually improve over time. What the Internet did to publishing, blockchain will do to about 160 different industries. It’s crazy.”

― Patrick M. Byrne

“Whether it’s threats to Medicare, cuts in education spending, or Internet privacy, the ramifications got young people out to vote and should be enough to keep them involved in our political system.”

“I live in England, so I take a lot of trains, and you can’t really go anywhere without somebody talking on their mobile phone behind you, forcing you to listen to their conversation. With the Internet, with texting, with networking sites, there’s already information everywhere.”

― Patrick Ness

“The Internet is the most democratic communication platform in history, largely because we’ve had network neutrality rules that make sure all web traffic is treated equally, and no voices are discriminated against.”

― Patrisse Cullors

“Because of network neutrality rules, activists can turn to the Internet to bypass the discrimination of mainstream cable, broadcast, and print outlets as we organize for change.”

― Patrisse Cullors

“#BlackLivesMatter was born online but now lives in street actions, in conversations in our homes, and in the dignity swelling in our hearts. That is the power of the open Internet, and it is why we must do everything we can to protect black voices. Our lives depend on it.”

― Patrisse Cullors

“There are certain guys that think they know hockey because they follow it on the Internet.”

― Paul Coffey

“Because of the failure of the federal government to enforce federal law, we now have ‘banks too big to fail,’ unregulated Internet monopoly, and the evisceration of a dispersed and independent media.”

― Paul Craig Roberts

“The entire Internet, as well as the types of devices represented by the desktop computer, the laptop computer, the iPhone, the iPod, and the iPad, are a continuing inescapable embarrassment to science fiction, and an object lesson in the fallibility of genre writers and their vaunted predictive abilities.”

― Paul Di Filippo

“Soon, the viewer won’t even know if he’s watching on broadcast or the Internet. He’ll just be eating his cereal and see an image on the spoon. That’s how we’ll be watching soon, on spoons. The commercials will be on the knives.”

― Paul Lieberstein

“Sooner or later the Internet will become profitable. It’s an old story played before by canals, railroads and automobiles.”

“The Internet is no longer the kind of thing where only six guys in the world can build it. Now, you can write a couple of checks and get one of your own.”

― Paul Vixie

“So along with several very popular Internet sites, talk radio has served as alternative media that gives listeners information that they otherwise would not hear.”

― Paul Weyrich

“The Internet is a strange, strange place that is full of lies. I would say mostly lies.”

― Pauley Perrette

“The Internet plays an ever more significant role in the sedulous promotion of terrorism. We know that in the U.K., groups gather to view the preaching of violent men located many thousands of miles away and that this does have a powerful effect on young minds.”

― Pauline Neville-Jones

“I talk to my readers on social networking sites, but I never tell them what the book is about. Writing is lonely, so from time to time I talk to them on the Internet. It’s like chatting at a bar without leaving your office. I talk with them about a lot of things other than my books.”

― Paulo Coelho

“People are very reluctant to talk about their private lives but then you go to the internet and they’re much more open.”

― Paulo Coelho

“Access to the Internet is an essential tool for equipping students with 21st century skills.”

― Peggy Whitson

“Every day, TV, newspapers, and the Internet bombard us with a message that we’re destroying the earth. Ice caps are melting, rivers are dying, polar bears are drowning, and trees are doing something.”

― Penn Jillette

“Businesses which were slow to recognize the power of the Internet in the mid ’90s were quickly left behind. For example, Blockbuster failed to innovate with streaming technology and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2010.”

“If it doesn’t come through the Internet, it’s not really compelling to me.”

“Back in the days before the Internet, there was no place to put a short film, so Mike Gribble and Spike Decker had this festival of animation. My student films got selected.”

“Talk radio has made an enormous run around establishment media. But the Internet is making an end run around talk radio. Suddenly we’re faced with an information age.”

“The Internet has got great tools. How we lived without Google all those years I don’t know.”

― Pete Hamill

“I saw the Internet as being something which would allow power mongers to control us, and that we would willingly go to that if it promised us salvation – if it promised to show us who we were and let us find ourselves as we had, uniquely in our generation, through rock music.”

― Peter Schiff

“The Internet, like the steam engine, is a technological breakthrough that changed the world.”

― Peter Singer

“The new freedom of expression brought by the Internet goes far beyond politics. People relate to each other in new ways, posing questions about how we should respond to people when all that we know about them is what we have learned through a medium that permits all kinds of anonymity and deception.”

― Peter Singer

“Today, if you have an Internet connection, you have at your fingertips an amount of information previously available only to those with access to the world’s greatest libraries – indeed, in most respects what is available through the Internet dwarfs those libraries, and it is incomparably easier to find what you need.”

“The hope of Internet anarchists was that repressive governments would have only two options: accept the Internet with its limitless possibilities of spreading information, or restrict Internet access to the ruling elite and turn your back on the 21st century, as North Korea has done.”

― Peter Singer

“Even with censorship, the Internet is a force for change.”

― Peter Singer

“I was not familiar with the Internet thing. Honestly, you know with all kinds of Internet media, I was not that familiar. I was not that kind of guy. Accidentally, ‘Gangnam Style’ happened, and you have YouTube and all other sorts of stuff like Facebook and Twitter and so on. So after that, I learned and learned.”

― Psy

“I tell people that the Clipse were the first Internet rap darlings.”

― Pusha T

“Predating the Internet and predating videos, you had an active imagination. You would hear sounds and then get mental pictures of what these sounds felt like to you. It engaged you and made you more invested in it. It made you want to get tickets to the show, buy the album, put the poster on the wall. Now it’s sensory overload.”

“Most of my stuff hasn’t gone viral. I have been successful on YouTube and I’m very proud of the stuff that I’ve done, but compared to the people who are actual internet stars and making a living off of it, my views are nothing.”

― Rachel Bloom

“You create your own material to try to get it out there because a lot of people are multi-hyphenates, to use the corporate term. You’re creating stuff to be in in order to showcase all your talents. I think the idea of using YouTube and the Internet, you don’t have to wait around for a network to buy your show.”

― Rachel Bloom

“What bothers me is our culture’s obsession with nudity. It shouldn’t be a big deal, but it is. I think this overemphasis with nudity makes actors nervous. There’s the worry about seeing one’s body dissected, misrepresented, played and replayed on the Internet.”

― Rachel McAdams

“It’s funny the things the Internet likes to proclaim.”

― Rachel McAdams

“The Internet foments outrageous behavior in part because it is a ‘gray area’ for social interactions.”

― Rachel Simmons

“If the Internet has been called a great democratizer, perhaps what social media has done is let anyone enter the beauty pageant. Teens can cover up pimples, whiten teeth, and even airbrush with the swipe of a finger, curating their own image to become prettier, thinner, and hotter.”

“The Internet has transformed the landscape of children’s social lives, moving cliques from lunchrooms and lockers to live chats and online bulletin boards and intensifying their reach and power.”

“In my world view, clearly the Internet is a huge force multiplier for Indian media because it has not crept up on us like something invisible; we’ve seen it all play out in the West.”

― Raghav Bahl

“Open access is good, but we have to have ways and means where content that has been generated with a lot of effort and cost also gets the chance to monetise itself as is now beginning to happen in the West where some publications are really beginning to make their Internet revenue lines and subscription revenue lines quite significant.”

― Raghav Bahl

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“The early idealists and companies and governments have all assumed that the Internet will bring freedom. Yet China proves that this is not the case.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“I don’t think any foreign Internet company can effectively compete against Chinese companies in the Chinese market. The regulatory environment is so difficult that it’s almost impossible for foreigners to have an advantage over locals who have better political connections and who can manipulate the regulatory system much more effectively.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“While the Internet can’t be controlled 100 percent, it’s possible for governments to filter content and discourage people from organizing.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Internet freedom is a bit of a Rorschach test: it means different things to different people.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“The Chinese government clearly does pay attention to public opinion expressed on the Internet – the extent to which they choose to adapt their practices based on it, or ignore it, seems to vary.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“There are a lot of people that think the Internet is going to bring information and democracy and pluralism in China just by existing.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“There is no country on Earth where Internet and telecommunications companies do not face at least some pressure from governments to do things that would potentially infringe on users’ rights to free expression and privacy.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“One thing is very clear from the chatter I see on Chinese blogs, and also from just what people in China tell me, is that Google is much more popular among China’s Internet users than the United States.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“The Chinese government sometimes shuts down the Internet and mobile services in specific areas where unrest occurs.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Whether or not the U.S. government funds circumvention tools, or who exactly it funds and with what amount, it is clear that Internet users in China and elsewhere are seeking out and creating their own ad hoc solutions to access the uncensored global Internet.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“The Internet is a politically contested space.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Only about 10 percent of India’s population uses the web, making it unlikely that Internet freedom will be a decisive ballot-box issue anytime soon.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“A number of countries, including Russia and China, have put forward proposals to regulate aspects of the Internet like ‘crime’ and ‘security’ that are currently unregulated at the global level due to lack of international consensus over what those terms actually mean or over how to balance enforcement with the protection of citizens’ rights.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Defending a free and open global Internet requires a broad-based global movement with the stamina to engage in endless – and often highly technical – national and international policy battles.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Nobody is forcing anybody who is uncomfortable with the terms of service to use Facebook. Executives point out that Internet users have choices on the Web.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Facebook and Google are battling over who will be our gateway to the rest of the Internet through ‘like’ buttons and universal logins – giving them huge power over our online identities and activities.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Governments clash with each other over who should control the co-ordination of the Internet’s infrastructure and critical resources.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“It is not inevitable that the Internet will evolve in a manner compatible with democracy.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“What role did the Internet play in the Egyptian Revolution? People will be arguing about the answer to that question for decades if not centuries.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“In Britain, a ‘block list’ of harmful Web sites, used by all the major Internet Service Providers, is maintained by a private foundation with little transparency and no judicial or government oversight of the list.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“So long as confusion reigns, there will be no successful global Internet agenda, only contradiction.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“We’re going to get the Internet we deserve, and those people who are the most active in shaping the Internet to their liking are going to win out.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Congress may not get the Internet, but the Internet doesn’t get Congress, either.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Internet companies created the social-media tools that fueled the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street insurgencies, and that have helped political candidates rally grass-roots support.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Every year in China, Internet executives are officially rewarded for their ‘patriotism.’”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“It’s much easier to force intermediary communications and Internet companies such as Google to police themselves and their users than the alternatives: sending cops after everybody who attempts a risque or politically sensitive search, getting parents and teachers to do their jobs, or chasing down the origin of every offending link.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“In the wake of the Internet getting shut down in Egypt – something that also happened in Xinjiang – I know that there are groups working on ways to help people get online when domestic networks get shut down. This could also be of use to some people in China.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“Most people who use the Internet seem take its nature and characteristics for granted, like we take air and water for granted.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“While American intellectual property deserves protection, that protection must be won and defended in a manner that does not stifle innovation, erode due process under the law, and weaken the protection of political and civil rights on the Internet.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“In Russia, they do not generally block the Internet and directly censor websites.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“We like to think of the Internet as a border-busting technology.”

“Despite the Obama administration’s proclaimed commitment to global Internet freedom, the executive branch is not transparent about the types and capabilities of surveillance technologies it is sourcing and purchasing – or about what other governments are purchasing the same technology.”

― Rebecca MacKinnon

“One-way monologues through the Voice of America and Radio Free Asia don’t have much street cred with China’s Internet generation, to be honest.”

― Renee James

“I find myself without Internet a fair bit in the house I live in in Streatham.”

“Nobody, absolutely nobody, straps a bomb on their body because they were recruited from the Internet. It takes an enormous amount of personal face-to-face contact and time in order to recruit a young person into the cause of jihad.”

― Reza Aslan

“What the printing press is to Christianity in the 16th century, that’s what the Internet is doing to Islam now. It has opened up the monopoly over the interpretation of Islam that used to solely belong to the religious class.”

― Reza Aslan

“Our focus is to continue to pioneer branded entertainment online and consider opportunities as they come. We’re smart enough to know that we can’t bite the hand that feeds us and neglect our Internet presence.”

“If you had to find a period in history that would equate to what the Internet has presented us with now, it would be Elizabethan England. It was a world in flux.”

― Rich Brian

“I always liked to draw, and when I was a kid, the Internet wasn’t big at all, so I would go to Internet cafes and search Google images for cartoon characters and save it to my USB drive.”

― Rich Brian

“I learned how to make videos, I learned how to make music, I learned English from the Internet. It’s such a great platform, too, to release your stuff.”

“We fear hackers lifting our digital wallet, a public accounting of our private lives, and we wonder if the shoes that follow us around the Internet will someday, with the click of a distant mouse, look like the jackboots of old.”

― Richard Cohen

“Everything’s changed. The technology is the big thing changing now, the way movies like ‘Alice’ or ‘Avatar’ are made. And technology on the other side, the audience side. Word spreads so fast now on a movie, with the Internet, and piracy is something coming down the line like in the music industry.”

― Richard D. Zanuck

“In the original introduction to the word meme in the last chapter of ‘The Selfish Gene,’ I did actually use the metaphor of a ‘virus.’ So when anybody talks about something going viral on the Internet, that is exactly what a meme is, and it looks as though the word has been appropriated for a subset of that.”

― Richard Dawkins

“An Internet meme is a hijacking of the original idea. Instead of mutating by random change and spreading by a form of Darwinian selection, Internet memes are altered deliberately by human creativity. There is no attempt at accuracy of copying, as with genes – and as with memes in their original version.”

― Richard Dawkins

“I’m afraid the Internet is filled with people using really very intemperate language.”

― Richard Dawkins

“There is no question that there is a capability that the Internet affords us to get a closer look at the customer and to be closer to the customer.”

― Richard Hayne

“A lot of the point mags are going out of business. They dropped the pay tremendously and it’s all because of the internet. I used to go out once a month to LA and shoot for one week. I’d make a ton of money then come back to New York and do whatever I wanted.”

― Richard Kern

“If you look at some of the smaller capital markets in Asia, when they want funding, they either come here to Hong Kong or they go to California, the mecca of the Internet, because they can capture the liquidity and then move on and do what they want to do, which is develop a business.”

― Richard Li

“The Internet, one of the great inventions of the modern Western world, has shown itself to be a weapon that can be used to incite and train those who wish to cause harm to that world.”

― Richard N. Haass

“I was surfing the Internet, and I came across a school in Atlanta where you could learn how to climb trees with ropes the way the pros do. It sounded terrific, and so I went down there, and I began to learn these kind of rarified techniques for how you get up and down trees while using special ropes and gear.”

― Richard Preston

“The first legislation that I produced relating to the Internet was a bill to overturn a restriction inside of the law that prohibited the Internet backbone from being used for anything other than research and scientific and educational communication.”

― Rick Boucher

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

― Rick Boucher

“I think that the balance needs to be restored, and I would note that in the camp in which I am in, one finds libraries, universities, the Internet industry, the manufacturers of digital media, and consumers.”

― Rick Boucher

“I just love when the Internet is wrong. It’s the only thing that will save journalism.”

― Rick Moranis

“Every business has to figure out how to make itself more efficient. They’ve got to use technology. They’ve got to use the Internet, things like that. We can do the same thing with our state colleges.”

“I just think the Internet has made us ruder.”

― Rick Warren

“There are enormous dangers in thinking that the world online is the world as it exists, that what you get from your one stroke on the Internet is all there is to know.”

― Ricky Jay

“Notional is a production company with the DNA of an Internet company that makes content for everything.”

― Ricky Van Veen

“All Internet comedy is niche comedy. If you do an Internet video about Halo, every Halo fan will send it to every other Halo fan. But if you did an episode of a network comedy that parodied Halo, most of your audience wouldn’t even get it.”

― Ricky Van Veen

“While I do occasionally order items on the Internet, it’s hard to teach an old shopper new tricks. I’m convinced that the catalogue will eventually disappear, but not until the last baby boomers have kicked off their smelly Nikes and been buried in mulch.”

― Rita Rudner

“’Youngblood’ #1 was my first brush with Internet bashing. Message boards were just emerging, but the criticism was drowned out by millions of copies flying off shelves.”

― Rob Liefeld

“The Internet snark has zero effect on me.”

― Rob Liefeld

“I don’t think the Internet should be immune to the standing laws of countries.”

― Rob Lowe

“Pretty much everything on the web uses those two things: C and UNIX. The browsers are written in C. The UNIX kernel – that pretty much the entire Internet runs on – is written in C.”

― Rob Pike

“It’s extraordinary that revolutions taking place around the world were sparked by communication on the Internet.”

― Robbie Robertson

“We mustn’t forget we chose the name ‘WWW’ before there was even one line of code written. We could do that because the Internet as an infrastructure was already there.”

― Robert Cailliau

“I started using the Internet when I was 12 years old. I would go into chat rooms and flirt. It was the beginning of the Internet for young people.”

― Robert Coppola Schwartzman

“The American revolutionaries believed in the power of the word. But they had only word of mouth and the printing press. We have the Internet.”

― Robert Darnton

“It simply is not true that everything is now on the Internet, but it is true that the digital resources available through the Internet have enormous potential for education and even for self-empowerment of individuals.”

― Robert Darnton

“I know there’s a certain love and affection for the homemade on the Internet, and I’m all for that, too, and I appreciate it in alternative music, and I appreciate it in B-movies and in Sundance, independent films.”

― Robert Englund

“One of the reasons why I think people have gone from reading mainstream newspapers to the Internet is because they realize they’re being lied to.”

― Robert Fisk

“You’re talking to somebody who two years ago couldn’t figure out how to use e-mail and who now has carpal tunnel. It has totally changed in that these films would not be getting out to people the way they’re getting out without the Internet.”

― Robert Greenwald

“The Internet has changed how young people listen to music. Television programs like ‘American Idol’ changed how people listen to music. It was no longer the songwriters that we celebrated; it was the singers.”

― Robert Hilburn

“It’s a different world because of the Internet and bloggers. Now, every editor is concerned about speed because every minute counts. Speed is more important than content. Whoever gets a review out first becomes the authority.”

― Robert Hilburn

“With the Internet today, it is possible to do some mixed media things where you can write about an artist and link to a song or video by that artist. But that was unheard of in the years I was at the paper.”

― Robert Hilburn

“The internet will catastrophically collapse in 1996.”

― Robert Metcalfe

“In seven to ten years video traffic on the Internet will exceed data and voice traffic combined.”

― Robert Metcalfe

“Eventually, if you had a printer that is IPP compliant, that printer will have a Web address and anyone around the world who can get on the Internet can print to that URL.”

― Robert Palmer

“Journalism has changed tremendously because of the democratization of information. Anybody can put something up on the Internet. It’s harder and harder to find what the truth is.”

― Robert Redford

“The focus of entertainment is taking away from what the public needs as news. I think investigative journalism will always be important and always find its way, be it on the Internet or wherever.”

― Robert Redford

“Things that are interesting, people will pass around the Internet, around the world. And the blogosphere is only the tip of the iceberg.”

― Robert Scoble

“I don’t really have that much contact with Americans. I mean, I see the oddest things on the Internet, I suppose. And I’ve got a couple of American friends, but they are Anglophiles anyway because they’ve decided to come live here.”

― Robert Webb

“Some of the hotels I’ve been put up in for work in Scotland have been shockingly bad. They’re the type of hotel where the bedroom is like a cell and the Internet doesn’t work. I feel quite aggrieved at that because you should at least be treated reasonably well and have basic comfort.”

― Robert Winston

“The Internet was developed in large part by U.S. government research funding to develop new communications networks, starting with a network created by the Department of Defense.”

― Robin Hayes

“Today the Internet is run by private sector interests within the United States under the supervision of a nonprofit entity formed by the U.S. Department of Commerce.”

― Robin Hayes

“With over 1 billion users and counting worldwide, the Internet has quickly become a critical place for individuals, business communities and governments to share and distribute information.”

― Robin Hayes

“The Chinese government still would like to see U.S. Internet companies explore the Chinese market, providing they are willing to abide by Chinese law. I think companies like Facebook should think about the Chinese market.”

― Robin Li

“The internet population is going up and up. I am confident that this will be a huge market.”

― Robin Li

“I refused to do a lot on mobile Internet until around 2009. But because we didn’t start early, it took us some time to figure out what’s the important thing, what’s the most relevant thing for Baidu.”

― Robin Li

“In the beginning, I thought mobile search was not much different from Web search. It’s just a smaller screen, a slower speed; it’s all the bad things. When I thought about mobile Internet, it’s all the disadvantages.”

― Robin Li

“When I was 14, I spent a huge amount of time on the Internet, but not the Internet we know today. It was 1994, so while the World Wide Web existed, it wasn’t generally accessible. Prodigy and CompuServe were popular, and AOL was on the rise, but I didn’t have access to the web, and no one I knew had access to the web.”

― Robin Sloan

“When you’re writing for the Internet, you have the analytics, and you know that people are bailing every second. But various people kept reminding me that once people have bought a book, they’re in. You don’t have to be selling them on every page.”

― Robin Sloan

“The vision of the Internet as a vast digital wasteland isn’t correct. Everything is awesome, and we have more stuff to read than we ever have in history.”

― Robin Sloan

“If you come from the Internet, as I do – I think of it as sort of my native country – there’s a lot of great things happening on the Internet, but one of the things, one of the feelings you just can’t escape is the sense that it’s really hard to keep people’s attention.”

― Robin Sloan

“When I’m using the Internet, I have 25 tabs open, and even if somebody sends me… something interesting, odds are I’ll forget about it, or it’ll get kind of lost in the shuffle.”

― Robin Sloan

“I was always a computer kid, and I grew up with the Internet and always found it fascinating.”

― Robin Sloan

“Look at the walls of Pompeii. That’s what got the internet started.”

― Robin Williams

“Sure the Internet is the future, but what we do on the Internet is still very primal.”

― Robyn

“Sure, the Internet is the future, but what we do on the Internet is still very primal. It’s all about connecting to other people, sharing emotion. It’s our new feathers or face paint. It’s all very raw.”

― Robyn

“We are offering to the American public a line of delicious Italian-American foods. They will be available through the Internet, shopping networks and national store distribution.”

― Rocco DiSpirito

“The Internet allows foreign adversaries to attack America in new and unexpected ways. Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious. There will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide, and conquer us.”

― Rod Rosenstein

“Kids today know way more than you think they do, with the Internet and 500 TV channels.”

― Rodney Carrington

“I am sure innovation will blossom around the world, given that the Internet and mobile platforms enable innovators anywhere in the world to reach a global market with ease.”

― Roger Ailes

“The Internet is a bastion of negativity, and we get to sit there and voice our cute, little, important opinions.”

― Roger Craig Smith

“I think the Internet is an awful lot like FM radio was when it broke out in the late ’60s. It’s kind of a wild and wily kind of format. They could play 20 songs in a row that had the word ‘blue’ in them, or whatever they wanted to do.”

― Roger McGuinn

“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

“You can see it on the Internet: There’s an argument going on continually about, ‘What is folk music?’ And I don’t really want to get involved in that. It’s an endless argument, a ‘How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?’ kind of argument.”

― Roger McGuinn

“I think the good thing about the Internet is to give something away and to sell something else. Get a business model like that because the old brick and mortar record stores are falling apart, and the big record companies are collapsing under their own weight.”

― Roger McGuinn

“I’m the worst Bond, according to the internet. Generally hated!”

― Roger Moore

“I think examples of free market transactions between peaceful people using Bitcoin and the Internet, I think it’s a wonderful thing. It’s going to make the world a better place.”

― Romola Garai

“I never said I enjoy anything about using the Internet. I enjoy helping the entrepreneurs who are building this thing that I don’t necessarily like or use.”

― Ron Conway

“I’m interested in all forms of content, including Internet and gaming. On the TV side, cable has sparked a renaissance of the medium and that will continue for storytellers.”

“The Internet has changed the way we communicate with each other, the way we learn about the world and the way we conduct business.”

― Ron Wyden

“The Internet has become an integral part of everyday life precisely because it has been an open-to-all land of opportunity where entrepreneurs, thinkers and innovators are free to try, fail and then try again.”

― Ron Wyden

“Protect IP (PIPA) and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) are a step towards a different kind of Internet. They are a step towards an Internet in which those with money and lawyers and access to power have a greater voice than those who don’t.”

― Ron Wyden

“Congress should consult experts and consider alternatives and make 100% sure that any step it takes to police the Internet doesn’t change the Internet as we know it.”

― Ron Wyden

“As Members of Congress we can now engage with our constituents via online innovations like the Huffington Post, while a small business in rural Oregon can use the Internet to find customers around the world.”

― Ron Wyden

“Lacking a profit motive, workers in the government by and large have a different work ethic from those in private industry. When they could make one call, federal workers take a meeting. When they could find an answer on the Internet, they form a study committee. Instead of appointing one supervisor, they appoint five.”

― Ronald Kessler

“I really like baking, and I really like playing video games. I saw a few geeky baking blogs but I never saw a show on television or on the Internet like that. So I thought, ‘Why not be the first to try it out?’ And it went really well.”

― Rosanna Pansino

“I had to do a Northern England accent once, and I didn’t have much time, so I went and pored through YouTube. There are all sorts of resources out there. The Internet has made that much more affordable. Don’t break your neck to spend your money.”

“Frankly, it’s never really been replicated in the history of the Internet what Yahoo has done in the areas it’s done it.”

― Ross Levinsohn

“Yahoo is still in many ways the definitive brand of the consumer Internet, but I don’t think they can or should compete with Google any longer. That game is over.”

― Ross Levinsohn

“It would be easy to assume that the open letter is a symptom of the Internet age. Such is not the case. In 1774, Benjamin Franklin wrote an open letter to the prime minister of Great Britain, Lord North – a satirical call for the imposition of martial law in the colonies.”

― Roxane Gay

“The expansive anarchy of the Internet continues to lull us into believing that, because we can see something, that something should be seen. Because we can say something, there is something that must be said.”

― Roxane Gay

“Facebook has woven itself into the fabric of our lives and the foundation of the Internet. I think everything will be redefined because people are using their real identities on the Internet.”

― Ruchi Sanghvi

“To me, the Internet is a big scam.”

― Ryan Gosling

“Virtual currencies, used to buy digital goods inside online games, have become an integral part of the Internet landscape.”

― Ryan Holmes

“I’ve said this before, but I think one of the reason so many of the cartoonists I know have become friends is because the Internet is a much more cooperative space.”

― Ryan North

“I’m interested in exploring the places where all media meet. As TV, Internet, art, games and movies all start moving towards the same point, I want to be part of inventing that space. I’d like to explore media that are traditionally seen as part of the mainstream but not necessarily utilize mainstream formulas.”

― Ryan Trecartin

“Oracle is obsessed with security. It’s an absolute requirement for all our products. The real security issue is when customers take older products that were not built for the Internet, and kind of rack them and put them on the Internet.”

― Safra A. Catz

“I don’t have any answers as to whether the Internet is a good or a bad thing, but it’s certainly an important thing for the novel because novels are so much about communication, and when communication changes, the novel has to change.”

― Sally Rooney

“I was on the Internet a lot during my teenage years, and I think the influence of that kind of textuality on my writing has been pretty significant.”

― Sally Rooney

“The crowd’s a really powerful force on the Internet, and people finally understand how to harness that.”

― Sara Sampaio

“In the black-and-white world of a girl in her late teens, I thought of things like Internet etiquette as obvious, rule-bound institutions. Facebook was Facebook, texts were texts, emails were emails, chats were chats, webcamming was webcamming, phone calls were phone calls.”

― Sarah Jeong

“What’s awesome about the Internet is how it breaks up monopolistic markets where middlemen unfairly gobble up outsized fees, leaving us little choice but to keep paying them.”

― Scott Rogowsky

“Now, many public libraries want to lend e-books, not simply to patrons who come in to download, but to anybody with a reading device, a library card and an Internet connection. In this new reality, the only incentive to buy, rather than borrow, an e-book is the fact that the lent copy vanishes after a couple of weeks.”

― Scott Turow

“Computers and the Internet have made it really easy to rant. It’s made everyone overly opinionated.”

― Scott Weiland

“I love to talk about the drums and music. I started playing drums when I was probably six and played a lot until I was about ten or eleven years old. So, I guess five or six years where I played. I had a drum set at home, and I would just bang on it. I’d even go on the Internet and study basic beats and so forth.”

“Kids don’t go out and buy CDs, they make their own, they download them from the Internet.”

“Shopping malls across the county are dying fast, and my images of them are very nostalgic for most people that grew up attending these malls. These malls were communal spaces. These were gigantic chat rooms before the Internet existed. You went to the mall to meet and communicate with others, not just to shop.”

― Seph Lawless

“The internet was supposed to homogenize everyone by connecting us all. Instead what it’s allowed is silos of interest.”

― Seth Godin

“I grew up in the early 2000s, being one of the first-generation wrestlers to have access to the Internet and watch independent wrestling. We usually didn’t have to trade tapes anymore. We could just get online and search A. J. Styles or Low Ki.”

“It’s fun to be around people who don’t think I’m creepy for making videos in my bedroom on the Internet.”

― Shane Dawson

“I always wished that I was gay, that I was just 100 percent gay – for so many reasons. No. 1, that means I would know who I was. No. 2, it would be a lot easier for me to be accepted by people because I wear wigs and dresses on the Internet, and I’m feminine and all these things. It’d be so much easier to be just like, ‘Yeah, I’m gay.’ But I’m not.”

― Shane Dawson

“I think I’m used to competition. YouTube is a daily competition. I’m used to that, and I’m used to hate coming from everywhere on the Internet.”

“The Internet is emblematic of an era in which what happens in Southeast Asia or southern Africa – from democratic advances to deforestation to the fight against aids – can affect Americans. As has been observed about water pollution, we all live downstream now.”

― Shashi Tharoor

“The audience for comics has shifted dramatically. And the boundaries between books and fine arts have blurred. Maybe it’s the globalization of fine art through the Internet – it’s easy for certain groups to coalesce around a certain kind of work or medium.”

“I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet.”

― Sia

“I don’t want to be famous or recognizable. I don’t want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet… I’ve been writing pop songs for pop stars for a couple years and see what their lives are like, and that’s just not something I want.”

“As wild and anarchistic as ‘Deadpool”s marketing was in using the Internet, its viral pieces and billboards, ‘Logan’ was the opposite. We went really analog and old-fashioned, much like the movie itself.”

“As a function of the easy access to information provided by the Internet, and the ease with which it can be shared thanks to social media, consumers are now better informed as to the behavior of brands and the multiple global crises we face.”

― Simon Mainwaring

“Non-disclosure in the Internet Age is quickly perceived as a breach of trust. Government, corporations and each of us as individuals must recalibrate how we live and share our lives appropriate to the information now available and the expectations of others.”

“Shockingly, a University of Pennsylvania study says the number of young people addicted to gambling – largely due to increased exposure to the Internet and Internet gambling – grew by an alarming 20 percent between 2004 and 2005 alone.”

― Spencer Bachus

“Pre-teens, teens and college students have unlimited access to the Internet – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Because of the repeated exposure they have to illegal Internet gambling sites, they fall victim by the thousands.”

― Spencer Bachus

“In fact, a University of Connecticut study showed that as many as three in four pre-teens and teens who are exposed to Internet gambling become addicted.”

― Spencer Bachus

“The truth is I’ve been doing Kickstarter before there was Kickstarter; there was no Internet. Social Media was writing letters, making phone calls, beating the bushes.”

― Stephen Hawking

“I was out of the U.K. as a care-free, fun-loving student for much of Mrs. Thatcher’s time in Downing Street, and as I didn’t own a television in New York, never read the newspapers, and am old enough to have lived before the Internet, she is a shadowy figure in my memory.”

“Every new industry has exuberance in advance of reality. The techies get carried away. There is a period of despair. Then the pendulum swings the other way, and people see the long term potential. It’s like when the Internet bubble crashed.”

― Steve Jurvetson

“When you lower the cost of access to space, a boom of innovation follows, just as low-cost fiber optics paved the way for the Internet and the cloud services that followed.”

― Steve Mollenkopf

“People tend to not forgo purchasing a cellphone. In many places in the world, the first time they get on the Internet is through a cellphone. Pretty significant economic push, particularly in the emerging market.”

― Steve Mollenkopf

“A heart monitor is only useful if it’s being remotely monitored if there’s security. That is a massive issue that you need to solve. The difference between having the Internet in your phone and having the Internet understand your pulse and the motion of all of your limbs. There’s just a different level of security and robustness that’s required.”

― Steve Mollenkopf

“I want the entire smartphone, the entire Internet, on my wrist.”

― Steve Wynn

“There are a few ‘Raw Shark Texts’ tattoos floating around the Internet now, so I’m gathering them up to post on my forum. It’s a strange thought, knowing that readers are tattooing themselves with something I’ve created, but it feels wonderful to have added something that people care about to the world.”

― Steven Hall

“I love those stretches where I’ve just been a writer – when I haven’t been doing Internet start-ups – where I pretty much eliminate meetings from my life.”

“I think that the most beautiful thing lately hasn’t been in hardware or software per se but collaboration – the idea behind Napster, which uses the distributed power of the Internet as its engine.”

― Steven Levy

“No company has embraced the liberating aspects of the Internet as a ‘new marketplace of ideas’ more than the search giant Google.”

― Steven Levy

“For many years, when people described how the Internet worked – whether they were talking about shopping, communicating, or starting a business there – they inevitably invoked a single metaphor. The Internet, said just about everybody, was a contemporary incarnation of the wild, wild West.”

“I never go online. The Internet stuff is bonkers. You must not look at it.”

― Steven Moffat

“Like the early days of the Internet, the dawn of personal genomics promises benefits and pitfalls that no one can foresee.”

“The Internet has been this miraculous conduit to the undeniable truth to the Holocaust.”

― Steven Spielberg

“My wife and I had decided not to let anybody take pictures of our home because it was just the last place on earth we had that was unscathed. But people have climbed over the fence; they’ve taken aerial shots. They’ve gotten my address and put it on the Internet.”

― Steven Tyler

“I think there is something about the Internet which gives people almost an opportunity to role play and to create a facade, an image. I see that as quite a dangerous development because I think what we call social networking, Twitter, Facebook, etc., is actually quite antisocial.”

― Steven Wilson

“It’s like the Wild West, the Internet. There are no rules.”

― Steven Wright

“I related to the whole hippie, acid-test confluence of the early Internet. The idea that we should be open and interoperate with our data resonated with me.”

― Stewart Butterfield

“I’m forever reading on the Internet that I apparently cultivate this audience and never go badly.”

― Stewart Lee

“I’m not up on the Internet, but I hear that is a democratic possibility. People can connect with each other. I think people are ready for something, but there is no leadership to offer it to them. People are ready to say, ‘Yes, we are part of a world.’”

― Studs Terkel

“I find that I have to just kind of avoid the Internet as much as possible. And even more so, when I go and look at it, I remember why I should be avoiding it.”

― Sturgill Simpson

“When Wikipedia first started, the only people interacting on the Internet were hard core geeks. Now everyone is there, and they’re attracted to the easy, free ways to interact.”

― Sue Gardner

“Increasingly, I’m finding myself uncomfortable about how the Internet’s developing, who’s influencing its development, and who is not.”

― Sue Gardner

“Wikipedia has experienced censorship at the hands of industry groups and governments, and we are – increasingly, I think – seeing important decisions made by unaccountable, non-transparent corporate players, a shift from the open web to mobile walled gardens, and a shift from the production-based Internet to one that’s consumption-based.”

― Sue Gardner

“I feel like the Internet needs to be disarmed in some way. There needs to be a philosophical undermining of the Internet. We take it too seriously and too literally. For a reference we go to Wikipedia, which is full of inaccuracies and misinformation. It’s kind of beautiful – it’s all the product of imagination; it’s not reality at all.”

― Sufjan Stevens

“It’s traumatic to meditate on the availability of information through the Internet, or the way we perceive the world as a result. People don’t experience things totally or viscerally anymore. It’s all through representation, be it a record on YouTube or a post on a blog.”

― Sufjan Stevens

“I was inspired by the Hole in the Wall project, where a computer with an internet connection was put in a Delhi slum. When the slum was revisited after a month, the children of that slum had learned how to use the worldwide web.”

― Sugata Mitra

“I don’t mind children cribbing answers off other children. It’s one of the ways they can learn. I also don’t think there should be too many constraints on what they can look at on the Internet.”

― Sugata Mitra

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

“Being in the public eye, with the Internet – it’s scary. You can put out too much, and it becomes a part of the pie chart of who you are. Things stick. And they never go away.”

― Suranne Jones

“Trade on the Internet is becoming very widespread. The problem is our laws have not caught up with electronic commerce.”

― Susan Bysiewicz

“Unlimited choice is paralyzing. The Internet has made this form of paralysis due to option overload a standard feature of comfortable modern life.”

“There was a hateful video that was disseminated on the internet. It had nothing to do with the United States government and it’s one that we find disgusting and reprehensible. It’s been offensive to many, many people around the world.”

― Susan Rice

“The great thing about the Internet is you can launch a product, and within just a few hours, people will tell you what they think about it.”

― Susan Wojcicki

“One of the things that I’m trying to do is use the position that I’m in… to encourage the next generation of girls to think about the Internet as a career opportunity.”

― Susan Wojcicki

“You see a lot of powerful women on the Internet, but I wish there were more. I think the Internet really could use a lot more women.”

― Susan Wojcicki

“I think about my own career, and when I graduated from college, the Internet didn’t really exist yet. And so not having a specific plan, being able to be opportunistic at the end, is what enabled me to make some of my best decisions, which is to go to places that were growing but that I didn’t plan to have happen.”

― Susan Wojcicki

“The SP-i600 by Samsung with Windows Mobile software provides a great mobile phone experience that allows mobile professionals to be more productive and effectively manage their busy lives with seamless access to their data and the Internet when they are away from the office.”

“SXSW has been a melting pot of ideas and policy on immigration, cybersecurity, privacy, Internet of Things, international trade, and innovation.”

― Suzan DelBene

“Hollywood and the recording industry argue that current law permits the copying of songs and movies, and sharing them on the Internet. This enables young people to grow up learning how to steal.”

― Suzanne Fields

“The natural end of an era, as designers whose houses bear their names grow old and pass away, combined with the arrival of digital cameras and Internet exposure, has created a perfect storm.”

“The books that I’m writing, you can write them only when you’re amongst your people. You’re not going to find it on the Internet. You’re not going to hear it there.”

― Svetlana Alexievich

“For Odd Future, I only made beats for Mike G. With the Internet, I’m part of a production team making tracks for me to sing over.”

― Syd

“I think at places like ‘Slate’ or the magazine where I work, there was a really poor record of hiring African-American writers. It was really that simple. And I think with the proliferation of the Internet and Internet media, it has been a little harder to maintain that gatekeeper position.”

― Ta-Nehisi Coates

“When we talk about technology changing the world, we often hear about how it makes our lives easier, more connected, safer, or even healthier. They’re all things we can easily identify with. The Internet makes our lives easier; services like Skype and WhatsApp allows us to be more connected – the examples are endless.”

― Taavet Hinrikus

“Broadband connections allow us to access more robust types of content, services, and applications – video chat versus email, or live streaming versus chat, for example. Yet if we look beyond our own personal use, we can see that broadband Internet access is not merely a convenience: it is a powerful force for social change.”

― Tae Yoo

“As the world transitions to the Internet of Everything – where people, processes, and data are intelligently connected – we’ll be linked in even more ways. Here, billions and trillions of sensors around the earth and in its atmosphere will send information back to machines, computers, and people for further evaluation and decision-making.”

― Tae Yoo

“The Internet, and all the jobs that come with it, continues to expand, and this makes digital literacy a crucial part of every girls’ education.”

― Tae Yoo

“The Internet empowers people to have a direct impact on an emergency situation on a global scale.”

“Networking technology is at the heart of the Internet, connecting devices and local networks with the global public Internet. Planning, designing, building, managing, and supporting IP networks all require dedicated networking skills.”

― Tae Yoo

“In many parts of the world, being able to download information on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop in a few seconds is the norm. In Silicon Valley, wireless high-speed Internet connections are more ubiquitous than Starbucks.”

“I’ve always been a geek, so I’ve always used the Internet, perhaps at first for autopromotion, as many authors do.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“It’s great that with the Internet, there has come this sense of creative independence.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“I think what human beings need is to be able to laugh at the absurd, hold on to ambiguity, and learn to love nuance, instead of making everything one or the other, and structurally, so much of the Internet and online publishing doesn’t have room for any of that.”

― Tavi Gevinson

“Nuclear holocaust might eliminate the Internet.”

“It’s dangerous to read the Internet about yourself when you’re me. Or when you’re anyone in the public eye.”

“I’m a girls’ girl. I have guy friends, but the problem with having guy friends is, like, I always get linked to them, and they’ll end up in a slideshow of people I’ve apparently dated on the Internet.”

“Netflix is distributed in 50 countries around the world. It’s an incredibly affordable, well-distributed product that gives anyone with access to the Internet and a screen access to content in a very affordable way.”

― Ted Sarandos

“The two things that got everyone’s attention about the ‘House of Cards’ deal was the two-season commitment and David Fincher. After David Fincher directs a series for Netflix, no one else can say, ‘Well, I’m not going to direct a series for the Internet.’”

― Ted Sarandos

“Being able to compete for consumers’ attention and dollars over the preciousness of access is a thing of the past. Everyone is using the Internet to globally market a product.”

― Ted Sarandos

“The U.S. has been in control of the domain names of the Internet since its inception. If we relinquish this control, it goes possibly to the U.N.”

― Ted Yoho

“One of the things that made the Internet so explosive and such an economic and intellectual force is because of the free-market enterprise in a country like the U.S. controlling access to it.”

― Ted Yoho

“A lot of what’s happened with my career has been because of the Internet. It’s a way for me to reach fans directly, especially with music.”

― Teddy Geiger

“Internet radio stations like KCRW do take you everywhere, yet that’s just one of a hundred small things you have to do to succeed. It used to be, if you just got on the cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ and a spotlight on ‘The Tonight Show,’ that was enough.”

“Search, which is extremely important, represents about 5% of the page views on the Internet and 40% of the revenue. So, highly monetized.”

“We had a show called NXT, and Daniel Bryan was my rookie, and I was his pro. And the object was for the pros teach the rookies what it’s like to be a WWE Superstar.

“The Internet represented a really important tool that would be used by every business out there to some extent. But for the vast majority of companies to say, ‘We’re an Internet company,’ is a little bit like saying, ‘We’re a fax company because we have a fax machine.’”

― Thomas O. Staggs

“I feel like music itself is inspirational enough. Especially with the Internet. Not to sound like a shut-in.”

― Thundercat

“Yo, it’s helped me so much. I’ve connected with so many people that I’ve never imagined that I would ever know personally. I’m team Internet, for sure.”

― Tierra Whack

“I just sit around at home, and I have nothing to do, so I am on the Internet all the time.”

― Tila Tequila

“We have people who pay to use our products and services, and they are heavily engaged in our content. If you erase the brand perceptions of AOL, and consider that people pay to use our properties, you would probably consider this one of the most valuable audiences on the Internet.”

― Tim Armstrong

“There was a time when people felt the internet was another world, but now people realise it’s a tool that we use in this world.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“It’s amazing how quickly people on the internet can pick something up, but it’s also amazing how quickly they can drop it.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“I myself feel that it is very important that my ISP supplies internet to my house like the water company supplies water to my house. It supplies connectivity with no strings attached.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“One of the things I like about the computer that I use is that I can write a program on it or I can download a program on to it and run it. That’s kind of important to me, and that’s also kind of important to the whole future of the internet… obviously a closed platform is a serious brake on innovation.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“The amount of control you have over somebody if you can monitor internet activity is amazing.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“Things can change so fast on the internet.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“When you go onto the internet, if you really rummage around randomly then how do you hope to find something of any of value?”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“I should be able to pick which applications I use for managing my life, I should be able to pick which content I look at, and I should be able to pick which device I use, which company I use for supplying my internet, and I’d like those to be independent choices.”

― Tim Berners-Lee

“It’s just astonishing to me, but not surprising in some respects, how dependent we are on the somewhat meaningless and certainly ephemeral feedback that we get from strangers on the Internet. I think that’s a dangerous dependence to develop.”

― Tim Ferriss

“At its core, I don’t view Facebook as a social network. I think it could become the driver’s license of the Internet. And beyond that, it can become the pipes and the plumbing upon what most of the Internet is built. I think it’s very well positioned.”

― Tim Ferriss

“The Internet now is completely full of memes, and it’s interesting, the idea that instead of having a sign crotched on your door or a magnet on your fridge saying whatever cliches and bon mots, pictures laid out with some text are passed around and move really fast.”

― Tim Minchin

“A lot of the websites built through the 1990s used Perl. The first webmaster of Sun Microsystems coined a wonderful phrase. He said Perl is the duck tape of the Internet – it’s this language that people would write all these scripts that make things just work.”

― Tim O’Reilly

“Just as the PC bled back into industrial economy, I think the Internet is going to bleed back into our overall economy and have a transformative effect on major sectors that we don’t yet foresee.”

― Tim O’Reilly

“The fact that there’s all these really messed-up people on the Internet is not a statement about the Internet. It is a statement about those people and what they do, and we need to basically say that you guys are doing something unacceptable and not generalise it into a comment about ‘this is what’s happening to the blogosphere.’”

― Tim O’Reilly

“The ‘reality’ shows on television, the Internet, these things have encouraged people to behave with less and less restraint. We are broadcasting our emotions in public in a way that has never happened before.”

― Tim Pigott-Smith

“As soon as a critical mass of people in the world gained access to devices with high-end graphics and Internet connectivity, the rise of games like ‘Fortnite’ became inevitable.”

― Tim Sweeney

“Cable television and the Internet have created an unending demand for information, and there simply isn’t enough truth to go around.”

― Timothy Noah

“I used to love going to shows and finding new bands, but the Internet takes the fun out of it. Like a band? You can buy and download every single song they have ever done within five minutes.”

― Timothy Simons

“What is new is the multiplying reach and volume of the Internet, concentrating the toxicity of destructive emotions and circulating them in the political bloodstream with unparalleled velocity.”

― Tina Brown

“High speed Internet access isn’t a nice thing to have, it’s a necessary thing to have.”

― Tina Smith

“Explicit material is available in a variety of forums – from popular music to television to the Internet.”

― Tipper Gore

“Just this week, my husband proposed a plan for schools and libraries to develop their own plans to keep children from finding indecent material on the Internet as an alternative to a Congressional proposal that would require a federally mandated solution.”

― Tipper Gore

“I don’t know when the Return of the Living Dead are happening. That’s been on the Internet for years.”

― Tobe Hooper

“I think reviewers have become particularly venomous because, in a way, the power has been sucked from them. A 15-year-old can write a review on the Internet and it means as much as Roger Ebert’s review, and that just makes Roger Ebert mad, so he comes out harder and stronger.”

― Todd Phillips

“It would be really great if someone would invent a new Internet with the specific purpose of not making money off of it, but making it what it originally was, a free marketplace of ideas, and there are still aspects of the Internet that are that. Wikipedia, essentially, is still the bastion of the original ideals of the Internet.”

― Todd Rundgren

“Health care costs blunt the competitive edge of American entrepreneurs, from the auto industry to internet start-ups.”

― Tom Allen

“What I think is highly inappropriate is what’s going on across the Internet, a kind of political jihad against Dan Rather and CBS News that’s quite outrageous.”

― Tom Brokaw

“I had good care going. I had Meredith and the family. And I didn’t want to become the object of some kind of pity, most of all. I didn’t want to show up on the Internet, ‘Tom Brokaw has cancer.’”

― Tom Brokaw

“I’m obsessed with shopping. I’ll get these urges to buy, like to shop for stuff on the Internet. I search for all kinds of weird gizmos I could get.”

― Tom Felton

“I live, I shop almost exclusively on the Internet. I’ve bought cars on the Internet. I watch television, I do everything on it. I even watch my son online.”

― Tom Ford

“If you look at the Internet, it’s been hard for a lot of the traditional media companies to launch viable brands.”

― Tom Freston

“The Internet free marketplace is defined by fierce competition. And that competition has transformed the world with innovation, investment, and what we need most of all right now: jobs.”

― Tom Graves

“The dirty little secret that nobody likes to talk about is that things just might have been better before the Internet. We had more time to ourselves before cell phones and text messaging and Facebook consumed our lives.”

― Tom Green

“In 1980s, I discovered ‘Late Night with David Letterman.’ It was on one of the 13 cable TV channels. They didn’t have 25 late night talk show hosts trying to be the most outrageous. There was the likeable television genius Johnny Carson and his mad-genius counterpart Dave. There was nothing else crazy on TV every night, and there was no Internet.”

― Tom Green

“All of my old videos and the things I did on MTV, my old public access show – it was sort of all made for the Web, even though they were made before the Internet was broadcasting video.”

― Tom Green

“Me and my mates go free running all the time. It’s not my mum’s favourite sport. I’ve probably jumped four metres on to grass and two metres between buildings. It’s nothing like you see on the Internet, with guys jumping off skyscrapers, but it’s fun.”

― Tom Holland

“The Internet has perceived me as this fantastic dancer. I can still do a couple pirouettes, but I am by no means a proper dancer.”

― Tom Holland

“In the world of the Internet, there are many falsehoods. Anyone can write stuff on Wikipedia, and it doesn’t have to be true.”

― Tom Hulce

“Google, Microsoft and Yahoo should be developing new technologies to bypass government sensors and barriers to the Internet; but instead, they agreed to guard the gates themselves.”

― Tom Lantos

“I wanted to see if you could put a prototype radio station on the Internet so you wouldn’t have to invest $50 million or $100 million or $150 million to buy a transmitter and a frequency.”

― Tom Leykis

“The question I ask myself is what would have happened if newspapers hadn’t initially given their content away for free on the Internet. It’s so hard to get people to pay once they are accustomed to having something for free.”

― Tom Rachman

“That’s mostly what the Internet is, just passing the time. But unfortunately you are dealing with words that can have meaning.”

― Tom Wolfe

“One of the reasons the Dawn Wall climb went so viral is that you get great Internet access on El Cap. It’s like the best Internet access in all of Yosemite, so we had our phones with us.”

― Tommy Caldwell

“There are no more heroes in America. Because of the Internet, heroism has become momentary and within seconds someone who we should be thinking about will be replaced in people’s minds with news that Beyonce lip-synched at the inauguration.”

― Tommy Mottola

“Lies and distortions can be spread, via the Internet, in an inexpensive way, and the effects are astounding.”

― Tony Campolo

“When the music business failed to embrace the Internet, I thought it was game, set and match for the industry, and I quit.”

― Tony Fernandes

“Some of the people involved in ISIS are going to Iraq, and some of our young people are being radicalised through the Internet.”

― Tony Tan

“People live too much of their lives on email or the Internet or text messages these days. We’re losing all of our communication skills.”

― Tracy Morgan

“Many companies restrict Internet activity so heavily that it makes it difficult for people to do online research. The most obvious example? Checking the Facebook profile of someone you just interviewed.”

― Travis Bradberry

“Anyone who’s an executive at a record label does not understand what the Internet is, how it works, how people use it, how fans and consumers interact – no idea. I’m surprised they know how to use e-mail.”

― Trent Reznor

“It used to be that in comedy you had to play the clubs and work your way up, but now, before you do the clubs, you can put something up on the Internet. It’s public access times a million.”

― Trevor Moore

“We live in the Internet age. Everyone wants clicks. Clicks are what sells.”

― Trevor Noah

“Infrastructures of power always inhabit the surface of the earth somehow, or the skies above the earth. They’re material things, always, and even though the metaphors we use to describe them are often immaterial – for example, we might describe the Internet as the Cloud or cyberspace – those metaphors are wildly misleading.”

― Trevor Paglen

“The Internet was supposed to be the greatest tool of global communications and means of sharing knowledge in human history. And it is. But it has also become the most effective instrument of mass surveillance and potentially one of the greatest instruments of totalitarianism in the history of the world.”

― Trevor Paglen

“What would the infrastructure of the Internet look like if mass surveillance wasn’t its business model?”

― Trevor Paglen

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

― Trey Anastasio

“As a result, we will continue to see more innovation on the Internet and on mobile phones than on consoles.”

― Trip Hawkins

“I share every aspect of my life with the Internet. Whether or not that’s a good thing, I don’t know.”

― Troye Sivan

“I don’t know what I would have done had I not found the Internet. I found a community of people who I really liked and who I felt got me.”

― Troye Sivan

“I started my blog in 2002. That was pre-MySpace, pre-Facebook. That was back before newspapers realized they were going out of business. That was back when no one gave any credence to Internet writers.”

― Tucker Max

“Now I know we have the power to incite change through the Internet – keep sharing our stories, our dreams, and our struggles.”

― Ty Dolla Sign

“The Internet is the vehicle we’re driving to share our visuals, outrage, and ideas around the world.”

― Ty Dolla Sign

“I try to ignore the Internet. It’s an evil, evil place.”

― Ty Segall

“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

“When I hear people express extreme optimism about the Internet, I say, we’ve had it in mature form for about ten years. Macroeconomically speaking, those are about the worst 10 years we’ve had since about the 1930s. I don’t blame the Internet for that – that would be ridiculous.”

― Tyler Cowen

“Look at electricity in human history – it took a few decades for electricity to really revolutionize the American economy. And the Internet will be the same. At some point in the future, we will arrive at a new era of low-hanging fruit.”

― Tyler Cowen

“Look, nobody is born with a sociology degree, and no one can understand all perspectives. Nobody’s going to get it all from the very start. But the Internet at least allows everyone to hear these perspectives at a much faster rate than if we had to do it without it.”

― Tyler Oakley

“Facebook is like the Internet: a large company and an application. Bitcoin is a protocol for decentralisation, so you could build a decentralised company on top of it, a stock market. It’s an Internet of ownership, so it’s not quite a direct comparison.”

― Tyler Winklevoss

“You’ll be using digital currency. I think really what will happen is you’ll use a combination of bitcoin, ether, your devices, the ‘Internet of Things.’ We’ve got billions of devices coming online.”

― Tyler Winklevoss

“The promise of the Internet is being held back by Visa, Master Card, American Express.”

― Tyler Winklevoss

“To shut down Bitcoin is to shut down the Internet.”

― Tyler Winklevoss

“Young people do not watch television; they are on the Internet.”

― Umberto Eco

“The problem with the Internet is that it gives you everything – reliable material and crazy material. So the problem becomes, how do you discriminate?”

― Umberto Eco

“I was thinking things had changed: that the next generation of men weren’t as institutionally misogynist as the previous were. And then, suddenly, the Internet came along and gave them a platform to voice their feelings anonymously. And boy, did the bile come out.”

― Val McDermid

“I made a movie in Germany called ‘The Chambermaid’ – it was very, very small. I think it cost €70,000 to make. I even put some money in and raised some money for it. It was real German arthouse… It goes, somehow, out there on the Internet, and it goes on iTunes.”

― Vicky Krieps

“With the rapid growth of Internet users in China bringing online video into a new paradigm, the market scale we first envisioned as an online video website back in 2006 has grown significantly.”

― Victor Koo

“On the monetization front, our strengthening leadership in internet user base and broadening reach of our platform have already positioned us as a must-buy platform in online video for brand advertisers to reach a nationwide audience within China.”

― Victor Koo

“I don’t like to read the Internet; I’m not aware of what’s going on.”

“I’m actually doing a show. from my shed. on the internet. but it won’t be music or anything, it’s more to do with drinking and smoking. it’s an art piece.”

― Vince Clarke

“I think that the Internet – and I do love the free flow of ideas on the ‘Net – is like the wild west of the information world.”

― Vince McMahon

“One of the problems with the Internet is that a lot of times it is inaccurate.”

― Vince McMahon

“The standards are being lowered, not just on the Internet, but in all of news and media.”

― Vince McMahon

“The Internet lives where anyone can access it.”

― Vint Cerf

“The Internet of Things tell us that a lot of computer-enabled appliances and devices are going to become part of this system, too: appliances that you use around the house, that you use in your office, that you carry around with yourself or in the car. That’s the Internet of Things that’s coming.”

― Vint Cerf

“The post office doesn’t guarantee delivery, but it tries really hard. It’s called best efforts communication. If you put two postcards in the post-box, they don’t necessarily come out then in the same order that you put them in. So, that means that there’s potentially disorder with your delivery, and that’s also true in the Internet.”

― Vint Cerf

“Their Internet usage is growing very rapidly, and even they can do the math: If everyone in China needed an IPv4 address – just one – this country would use up one third of the entire public IP address space.”

― Vint Cerf

“The internet has become one of the motors of the 21st century economy, allowing all of us to reach a global audience at a click of a mouse and creating hundreds of thousands of businesses and millions of jobs.”

― Vint Cerf

“History is rife with examples of governments taking actions to ‘protect’ their citizens from harm by controlling access to information and inhibiting freedom of expression and other freedoms outlined in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We must make sure, collectively, that the Internet avoids a similar fate.”

― Vint Cerf

“We will have more Internet, larger numbers of users, more mobile access, more speed, more things online and more appliances we can control over the Internet.”

― Vint Cerf

“There is an underlying, fundamental reliance on the Internet, which continues to grow in the number of users, country penetration and both fixed and wireless broadband access.”

― Vint Cerf

“What is special about VOIP is that it’s just another thing you can do on the Internet, whereas it is the only thing – or nearly the only thing with the exception of the dial-up modem and fax – that you can do on the public switched telephone network.”

― Vint Cerf

“Choosing a single most important development is incredibly hard to do because a lot of different things had to happen before the Internet could be deployed in the fashion it is today.”

― Vint Cerf

“The idea that you can somehow erase the Internet is silly.”

― Vint Cerf

“With Internet technology you can capture a photo, a quote, or an article, store it locally and upload it into the Net more than once, if you wish, to multiple sites. Can you imagine then forcing the search engines to somehow not index that information?”

― Vint Cerf

“We all know the Internet didn’t explode until it became a commercial enterprise. Space communication will probably have the same characteristic.”

― Vint Cerf

“The Internet browser is the most susceptible to viruses. The browser is naive about downloading and executing software. Google is trying to help by releasing the Chrome browser as open source.”

― Vint Cerf

“It seems pretty clear that the Internet has an important economic role to play for China as it reaches out to the rest of the world.”

― Vint Cerf

“The idea that Google, Yahoo, and eBay are getting a free ride is absolutely unfair criticism. We have to build out our own infrastructure. And we have to inter-connect to the public Internet.”

― Vint Cerf

“No matter what you do, any country in the world is going to have the ability to set its own rules internally. Any country in the world can pull the plug. It’s not a question of technical issues, it’s not a question of right or wrong, it’s not a question of whether global Internet governance is right or wrong. It’s just with us.”

― Vint Cerf

“The big deal about the Internet design was you could have an arbitrary large number of networks so that they would all work together.”

― Vint Cerf

“There is a project that’s underway called the interplanetary Internet. It’s in operation between Earth and Mars. It’s operating on the International Space Station. It’s part of the spacecraft that’s in orbit around the Sun that’s rendezvoused with two planets.”

― Vint Cerf

“By 1988, I’m seeing this commercial phenomenon beginning to show up. Hardware makers are selling routers to universities so they can build up their campus networks. So I remember thinking, ‘Well, how are we going to get this in the hands of the general public?’ There were no public Internet services at that point.”

― Vint Cerf

“When I joined Google, they asked me what title I wanted. I said, ‘What about archduke?’ They said, ‘Well, that didn’t meet our nomenclature. Why don’t you be our Chief Internet Evangelist?’ This was in 2005.”

― Vint Cerf

“Internet and government is Topic A in every nation, all around the world. There is the question of getting the Internet built. That involves persuading government to have regulatory policies. It involves new technology to bring the Internet to rural places.”

― Vint Cerf

“Sorting through what social conventions we ought to adopt for the Internet is a pretty tricky and complicated topic. I think we are just going to live through a lot of these issues until we discover what social norms make sense.”

― Vint Cerf

“While the United States has never decreed that everyone has a ‘right’ to a telephone, we have come close to this with the notion of ‘universal service’ – the idea that telephone service (and electricity, and now broadband Internet) must be available, even in the most remote regions of the country.”

― Vint Cerf

“The Internet has introduced an enormously accessible and egalitarian platform for creating, sharing and obtaining information on a global scale. As a result, we have new ways to allow people to exercise their human and civil rights.”

― Vint Cerf

“Improving the Internet is just one means, albeit an important one, by which to improve the human condition. It must be done with an appreciation for the civil and human rights that deserve protection – without pretending that access itself is such a right.”

― Vint Cerf

“Like almost every major infrastructure, the Internet can be abused and its users harmed. We must, however, take great care that the cure for these ills does not do more harm than good. The benefits of the open and accessible Internet are nearly incalculable, and their loss would wreak significant social and economic damage.”

― Vint Cerf

“While many governments are committed to maintaining flexible regimes for fast-moving Internet technologies, some others have been quite explicit about their desire to put a single U.N. or other intergovernmental body in control of the Net.”

― Vint Cerf

“The bottom-up, loosely-coupled, bilateral and multi-stakeholder practices that have created the network of networks we call the Internet allow for a broad range of business models.”

― Vint Cerf

“The idea was that you could grow a system like the Internet one network at a time and then interconnect them. In some sense, the most important thing was the invention of the architecture protocols that enabled the Internet.”

― Vint Cerf

“I think exploring the Internet’s – and the Web’s – ability to facilitate personal linkages is remarkable; and expect to see additional social networking applications and services emerge.”

― Vint Cerf

“We have already discovered how quickly we become dependent on the Internet and its applications for business, government and research, so it is not surprising that we are finding that we can apply this technology to enable or facilitate our social interactions as well.”

― Vint Cerf

“Remember, ‘governance’ is a big word that includes human rights, freedom of speech, economic transactions on a worldwide basis – it touches everything. It’s everywhere, and that’s why Internet governance is Topic A in many corners.”

― Vint Cerf

“The immediacy of the mobile changes it from what we’re accustomed to in the personal computing world to something that’s instantaneous… What’s interesting and powerful about the mobile environment is that it’s connected to services on the Internet. This augments both platforms.”

― Vint Cerf

“The Internet is literally a network of networks.”

― Vint Cerf

“The Internet is brittle and fragile and too easy to take down. It’s a conduit for criminal activity. We need international treaties to prosecute the bad guys, but we don’t have them.”

― Vint Cerf

“Will we shoot virtually at each other over the Internet? Probably not. On the other hand, there may be wars fought about the Internet.”

― Vint Cerf

“I want more Internet. I want every one of the 6 billion people on the planet to be able to connect to the Internet – I think they will add things to it that will really benefit us all.”

― Vint Cerf

“Allowing a handful of broadband carriers to determine what people see and do online would fundamentally undermine the features that have made the Internet such a success, and could permanently compromise the Internet as a platform for the free exchange of information, commerce, and ideas.”

― Vint Cerf

“Many different relationships among patients, doctors, and drugs are possible and desirable. As in so many other areas of life, the Internet encourages experimentation. Questionnaire-based pharmacies operate between the traditional prescription and over-the-counter models.”

― Virginia Postrel

“The Internet’s abundance – of information, goods, tastes and sources of authority – creates unparalleled opportunities for individuals to get exactly what they want. But this plenitude threatens political and cultural authorities who believe in telling individuals what they can have rather than letting them choose for themselves.”

― Virginia Postrel

“Internet pharmacies return to consumers the choice promised by supporters of the 1938 Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. That law established federal requirements for drug safety and labeling but exempted prescription medicines from the labeling rules.”

― Virginia Postrel

“There’s a popular saying that the Internet interprets censorship as damage and routes around it. Desire and innovation will trump policy, the argument goes, as clever programmers circumvent controls.”

― Virginia Postrel

“The history of the Internet is not, as some people have tried to make it, a libertarian just-so story. It is a messy tale in which the government played a significant role. That role was, however, far more subtle than the plans of industrial policy gurus or techno-boosting politicians.”

― Virginia Postrel

“On the Internet, people on the tails of the bell curve can find one another.”

― Virginia Postrel

“By giving unusual people an easy way to find one another, the Internet has also enabled them to pool rare talents, resources, and voices, then push their case into public consciousness. The response, in many cases, is a kind of hysteria.”

― Virginia Postrel

“On the Net, the bell curve reclaims its tails. The uncommon is as accessible as the common. The very fragmentation of the Internet allows us to find ourselves in other people – and to know that we are not alone.”

― Virginia Postrel

“The Internet gives you access to a lot of material, and it’s fun to sit and read. I go to something like Wikipedia and look at different topics… I find the subject fascinating. I like to read about concepts and mathematicians.”

― Viswanathan Anand

“During the dot-com days, one could take just about any company public and reap fortunes. All you had to do was to make sky-high projections for growth, say you were in the Internet space, and go along with unscrupulous investment bankers and their analysts.”

“The Internet has definitely opened doors and leveled the playing field for musicians.”

“I think we should not control the Internet.”

― Vladimir Putin

“The Internet has turned the world into one gigantic linked community, capable of instantly sharing vast amounts of incorrect information.”

― W. Bruce Cameron

“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

“Basically, the Internet is just the way now. It’s the end-all, be-all of self-promotion. It’s not like you got to burn CDs and pass them out or sell them. The Internet is a tool that reaches billions and billions of people. It’s like a no-brainer to tie it in with self-promotion, or even label promotion.”

― Wale

“The Web is the new way to figure out who’s hot and what’s not. You can’t let TV dictate because it’s so polished, so political. It is what they want you to know. The Internet is the raw.”

― Wale

“It’s a trend to insult Wale, like that makes you cool on the Internet, and a part of it is because I respond.”

“Streaming TV shows, movies, and other types of video over the Internet to all manner of devices, once a fringe habit, is now a squarely mainstream practice. Even people still paying for cable or satellite service often also have Netflix or Hulu accounts.”

― Walt Mossberg

“I’m well aware that the Internet is global and can’t be wholly affected by any one country. But the United States has outsized influence.”

― Walt Mossberg

“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.”

“Arianna Huffington has exercised her renowned wisdom to give journalism another boost along the ever busier Internet. Her blog site promises to be an interesting challenge for those of us lucky enough to be invited to participate with our occasional contributions.”

“In the age of the internet when everybody’s a pundit, we’re still gonna need somebody there to go talk to the colonels, to be on the ground in Baghdad and stuff and that’s very expensive.”

“The Internet offers an interesting combination of advertising and community by participating in the community you can become an advertisement for yourself.”

“I am a messiah. Ask anyone on the Internet.”

― Warren Ellis

“I was a sophomore in college, and I did an industrial video about how to use the Internet – that dates me! It was with John Turturro, somehow they had gotten John Turturro to do this thing, and I was so excited and so nervous I probably drank 10 cups of coffee that morning.”

― Warren Kole

“I get very bored easily. I’m a child of the Internet or whatever; I want more and more of new and interesting things.”

― Washed Out

“I remember at one point, with a previous release of mine, I stumbled upon a shareware site, and the total number of downloads was in the thousands, maybe the hundreds of thousands. But there’s no doubt that the Internet and that kind of sharing has been a huge benefit for the band.”

― Washed Out

“I put some songs on the Internet back in 2009 – that’s kind of how everything started with Washed Out. I had never really planned on being in a band or anything like that. It was kind of a hobby I did on my own, just recording music.”

― Washed Out

“I find it interesting that there are impostors out on the Internet pretending to be Werner Herzog.”

― Werner Herzog

“The Democratic Party had no idea how to use the Internet. They treated it like free money and then kept on doing all the rest of the things they normally do.”

― Wes Boyd

“I am not convinced that lack of encryption is the primary problem. The problem with the Internet is that it is meant for communications among non-friends.”

“I try not to read the Internet because it’s mostly just a sea of hatred.”

― Will Gluck

“The future is electronic. It’s radio, television and the Internet; it’s not really newspapers anymore.”

― Will McDonough

“I think almost every newspaper in the United States has lost circulation due to the Internet. I also think the Internet will lead to a lot of plagiarism in journalism.”

― Will McDonough

“The Internet unfortunately means that, although a lot of truth and good stuff can spread as a result of the Internet, I think bad stuff and negativity spreads even more quickly.”

― Will Poulter

“If we bought everything on the Internet, our eyes and mouths and nostrils would probably begin to film over with a tegument – one initially tissue-thin and capable of being removed each morning, but which gradually thickened and hardened until we were imprisoned in our own tiny minds.”
