Computer quotes by Ali Benjamin
#1. Well, whatever you want to say, I recommend you come right out and say it. Just open your mouth and tell the world what's on your mind. Of course, with you generation, I always feel like I have to add this: Please don't do it through text or e-mail or anything like that. When you need to communicate something important, speak your truth face-to-face....
When you say what you have to say through a computer or phone, there are often miscommunications. But when it's just you and someone else, and you're right in front of them, speaking your truth, they are much more likely to understand. #Quote by Ali Benjamin
Computer quotes by Jack Du Brul
#2. Futurists are already predicting the day mankind builds its replacement, Artificial Intelligence. Daniel Wilson shows what might happen when that computer realizes its creators are no longer needed. Lean prose, great characters, and almost unbearable tension ensure that Robopocalypse is going to be a blockbuster. Once started I defy anyone to put it down. #Quote by Jack Du Brul
Computer quotes by George R R Martin
#3. I have files, I have computer files and, you know, files on paper. But most of it is really in my head. So God help me if anything ever happens to my head! #Quote by George R R Martin
Computer quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#4. People notice peacemakers because they dress funny. We know how the people who make war dress - in uniforms and medals, or in computers and clipboards, or in absoluteness, severity, greed, and cynicism. But the peacemaker is dressed in righteousness, justice, and faithfulness - dressed for the work that is to be done. #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Computer quotes by Marvin Minsky
#5. Within 10 years computers won't even keep us as pets. #Quote by Marvin Minsky
Computer quotes by Frederick Barrows
#6. We have a specific approach to computer support here. It's all very time sensitive and report driven. We want what we need when we need it but couldn't care less how that happens. #Quote by Frederick Barrows
Computer quotes by Beck
#7. I didn't even have a computer until like 10 years ago. I was still using a typewriter until 2002. #Quote by Beck
Computer quotes by Miroslav Vitous
#8. I was very much fascinated with the technology we had that we could edit in the computer our compositions, but all the sounds that were available on the market were crap. #Quote by Miroslav Vitous
Computer quotes by Jerry Uelsmann
#9. It's equally hard and labor intensive to create an image on the computer as it is in a darkroom. Believe me. #Quote by Jerry Uelsmann
Computer quotes by Alfie Allen
#10. I'm so computer illiterate, I barely know how to send an e-mail. I mean, I have a laptop and Gmail, but I don't really look at it much. #Quote by Alfie Allen
Computer quotes by Jay Leno
#11. The Senate voted 97-0 for an anti-spam bill to stop those annoying things you get on your computer. The senators made it very clear that when you start misleading the American people and start taking their money over false promises, that's our turf, buddy! #Quote by Jay Leno
Computer quotes by Gerry Stewart
#12. It doesn't matter how physically fit or tough you are, if you fail to use natures computer between your ears. #Quote by Gerry Stewart
Computer quotes by Melissa Etheridge
#13. Our society, where we are right now, our minds are junkyards. We watch TV and sit on the computer all day and barely have an original thought. #Quote by Melissa Etheridge
Computer quotes by Anonymous
#14. 2:40AM - 2:41AM (erotic_performance.exe): The curtain opened to reveal a Gateway 2000 computer and monitor running a Fenestra 98 operating system. The display booted up and opened a program on its desktop. The computer then began to rapidly recite a multitude of differential equations as well as their respective 3D graphical representations for 20 seconds. At the end of the program, the monitor displayed the word "INSERT" in the form of a screensaver. D-6744 and D-3432 both inserted $5 into its floppy drive. The curtain then closed at the end of the show. #Quote by Anonymous
Computer quotes by Will.i.am
#15. The computer allows me to execute my ideas at the speed I think them. #Quote by Will.i.am
Computer quotes by Guy Kawasaki
#16. 40. Be Defiant In our opinion, most search engine optimization (SEO) is bullshit. It involves trying to read Google's mind and then gaming the system to make Google find crap. There are three thousand computer science PhDs at Google trying to make each search relevant, and then there's you trying to fool them. Who's going to win? Tricking Google is futile. Instead, you should let Google do what it does best: find great content. So defy all the SEO witchcraft out there and focus on creating, curating, and sharing great content. This is what's called SMO: social-media optimization. #Quote by Guy Kawasaki
Computer quotes by Gary Vaynerchuk
#17. When we launched the WineLibrary website in 1996, I didn't even own a computer yet. I just understood that there was an opportunity here to market in a different way. #Quote by Gary Vaynerchuk
Computer quotes by Mark Weiser
#18. For thirty years most interface design, and most comptuer design, has been headed down the path of the "dramatic" machine. Its highest idea is to make a computer so exciting, so wonderful, so interesting, that we never want to be without it. A less-traveled path I call the "invisible"; its highest idea is to make a computer so imbedded, so fitting, so natural, that we use it without even thinking about it. #Quote by Mark Weiser
Computer quotes by Arthur Bloch
#19. A computer program does what you tell it to do, not what you want it to do. #Quote by Arthur Bloch
Computer quotes by Emo Philips
#20. My computer beat me at checkers, but I sure beat it at kickboxing. #Quote by Emo Philips
Computer quotes by Steve Jobs
#21. A computer is the most incredible tool we've ever seen. It can be a writing tool, a communications center, a supercalculator, a planner, a filer and an artistic instrument all in one, just by being given new instructions, or software, to work from. There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. #Quote by Steve Jobs
Computer quotes by Brian Reid
#22. In computer science, we stand on each other's feet. #Quote by Brian Reid
Computer quotes by Susannah Cahalan
#23. Our minds have the incredible capacity to both alter the strength of connections among neurons, essentially rewiring them, and create entirely new pathways. (It makes a computer, which cannot create new hardware when its system crashes, seem fixed and helpless). #Quote by Susannah Cahalan
Computer quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#24. The imperfect book that gets published is better than the perfect book that never leaves my computer. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Computer quotes by Loretta Lux
#25. I trained as a painter, and I still love painting, but eventually I became aware that the physical aspect of painting didn't really suit me. I didn't enjoy working in the medium. It's very messy. I prefer to have it clean, with a nice computer. #Quote by Loretta Lux
Computer quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#26. Kyler half-jumped half-threw himself toward my open window. I was wussy. Closing my eyes, I balled my hands up near my chest and let out a little shriek. There was a sound of flesh hitting wood and my eyes flew open. He came through the open window, landing on his feet like a damn cat. He stumbled though and banged into my desk, causing books and my computer to shake.
He held his hands out to his sides and looked around slowly before his gaze settled on me. "I am awesome." I could barely breathe. "Yeah." A knock sounded on my bedroom door a second before it opened. Dad popped his head in, eyes wide. "I'm just making sure he made it up here alive." I nodded and Kyler flashed a grin. "I'm in one piece." "That's good to see." Dad started to close the door, but stopped. "Next time, use the front door, Kyler." "Yes, sir," Kyler said. #Quote by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Computer quotes by Sugata Mitra
#27. I don't even want to guess at what computer literacy might do to children, except to say that if cyberspace is considered a place, then there are people who are already in it and people who are not in it. #Quote by Sugata Mitra
Computer quotes by Miguel Gomes
#28. They say films they are made by computers. There are computer programs to see statistically what people are more interested in, and they practice computer combinations in these things to try to have more viewers. #Quote by Miguel Gomes
Computer quotes by Alice Boyes
#29. Let's consider a less severe example: Bridget feels anxious about fixing the computer and emailing the accountant so she asks her partner, Steve, to do these things for her. The more people rely on their loved ones to do things for them when they feel anxious, the more their anxiety is likely to grow. Over time, they will feel less and less competent. They'll increasingly doubt their ability to cope with situations that provoke anxiety. More and more situations will set off their self-doubt. Their relationships are also likely to suffer. #Quote by Alice Boyes
Computer quotes by John Green
#30. Issac:"I dislike living in a world without Augustus Waters."
Computer: "I don't understand-"
Issac: "Me neither. Pause #Quote by John Green
Computer quotes by John Forbes Nash
#31. Nowadays we can do computer experiments using Mathematica, and even solve a system of 42 equations. This offers another route to knowledge, rather than mere ideas. #Quote by John Forbes Nash
Computer quotes by Ray Winstone
#32. The other thing is that when people mention computers - and I'm pretty much the same - they find it hard to comprehend that there's a performance there. They look at it as something that's just been made by a computer but in a way the difference is that when you make a normal film - and I'm simplifying it here - you put on the make-up and you put the scenery in before you start shooting, but with this you still perform in the same way but then you put the make-up on after, along with the costumes and scenery. #Quote by Ray Winstone
Computer quotes by Fabrice Grinda
#33. Learn computer science. It's extraordinarily helpful. I like recommending learning economics as well so they think in terms of business, they have rational frameworks for looking at the world, but yeah, computer science is an amazing way to get into, even if you want to be CEO, having a tech background is helpful. #Quote by Fabrice Grinda
Computer quotes by Mitch Kapor
#34. We are living in an era of anxiety produced by computer and communications technology. #Quote by Mitch Kapor
Computer quotes by Jaron Lanier
#35. Once you can understand something in a way that you can shove it into a computer, you have cracked its code, transcended any particularity it might have at a given time. It was as if we had become the gods of vision and had effectively created all possible images, for they would merely be reshufflings of the bits in the computers we had before us, completely under our control. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Computer quotes by Anna Wiener
#36. Sometimes I would worry about my internet habits and force myself awy from the computer, to read a magazine or book. Contemporary literature offered no respite: I would find the prose cluttered with data points, tenuous historical connections, detail so finely tuned it could have only been extracted from a feverish night of search-engine queries. Aphorisms were in; authors were wired. I would pick up books that had been heavily documented on social media, only to find that the books themselves had a curatorial affect: beautiful descriptions of little substance, arranged in elegant vignettes - gestural text, the equivalent of a rumpled linen bedsheet or a bunch of dahlias placed just so. Oh, I would think, turning the page. This author is addicted to the internet, too. #Quote by Anna Wiener
Computer quotes by Douglas Adams
#37. O Deep Thought computer," he said, "the task we have designed you to perform is this. We want you to tell us...." he paused, "The Answer."
"The Answer?" said Deep Thought. "The Answer to what?"
"Life!" urged Fook.
"The Universe!" said Lunkwill.
"Everything!" they said in chorus.
Deep Thought paused for a moment's reflection.
"Tricky," he said finally.
"But can you do it?"
Again, a significant pause.
"Yes," said Deep Thought, "I can do it."
"There is an answer?" said Fook with breathless excitement.
"Yes," said Deep Thought. "Life, the Universe, and Everything. There is an answer. But, I'll have to think about it."
...
Fook glanced impatiently at his watch.
"How long?" he said.
"Seven and a half million years," said Deep Thought.
Lunkwill and Fook blinked at each other.
"Seven and a half million years...!" they cried in chorus.
"Yes," declaimed Deep Thought, "I said I'd have to think about it, didn't I?"

[Seven and a half million years later.... Fook and Lunkwill are long gone, but their descendents continue what they started]

"We are the ones who will hear," said Phouchg, "the answer to the great question of Life....!"
"The Universe...!" said Loonquawl.
"And Everything...!"
"Shhh," said Loonquawl with a slight gesture. "I think Deep Thought is preparing to speak!"
There was a moment's expectant pause while panels slowly came to life on the front #Quote by Douglas Adams
Computer quotes by Rudy Rucker
#38. When I see an old movie, like from the '40s or '50s or '60s, the people look so calm. They don't have smartphones, they're not looking at computer screens, they're taking their time. They'll sit in a chair and just stare off into space. I think some day we'll find our way back to that garden of Eden. #Quote by Rudy Rucker
Computer quotes by Ghostface Killah
#39. Yo, you 14-carat gold slum computer wizard,
Tappin' inside my rap vein causes blizzards! #Quote by Ghostface Killah
Computer quotes by Lin-Manuel Miranda
#40. I like to separate the music- and lyric-writing processes if I can. I'll sort of noodle around on my keyboard and my computer until I have a beat or a chord progression, I'll record it as a loop, export it to iTunes, then walk around with the loop and sort of talk to myself in the loop, and that's how I get the lyrics. #Quote by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Computer quotes by Stephen Fry
#41. This new England we have invented for ourselves is not interested at all in education. It is only interested in training, both material and spiritual. Education means freedom, it means ideas, it means truth. Training is what you do to a pear tree when you pleach it and prune it to grow against a wall. Training is what you give an airline pilot or a computer operator or a barrister or a radio producer. Education is what you give children to enable them to be free from the prejudices and moral bankruptcies of their elders ... #Quote by Stephen Fry
Computer quotes by Mitchel Resnick
#42. I never took a computer science course in college, because then it was a thing you just learned on your own. #Quote by Mitchel Resnick
Computer quotes by Karl Schroeder
#43. Frankenstein's monster speaks: the computer. But where are its words coming from? Is the wisdom on those cold lips our own, merely repeated at our request? Or is something else speaking? - A voice we have always dreamed of hearing? #Quote by Karl Schroeder
Computer quotes by Jaron Lanier
#44. If there's any object in human experience that's a precedent for what a computer should be like, it's a musical instrument: a device where you can explore a huge range of possibilities through an interface that connects your mind and your body, allowing you to be emotionally authentic and expressive. #Quote by Jaron Lanier
Computer quotes by Yoseob
#45. I'm probably the worst at games. I don't really like computer games either. And when I lose, I won't go again but just say I don't want to play anymore. #Quote by Yoseob
Computer quotes by Alan Perlis
#46. In computing, turning the obvious into the useful is a living definition of the word 'frustration'. #Quote by Alan Perlis
Computer quotes by Mario Livio
#47. Computer scientist and author Douglas R. Hofstadter phrased this succinctly in his fantastic book Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid: "Provability is a weaker notion than truth." In this sense, there will never be a formal method of determining for every mathematical proposition whether it is absolutely true, any more than there is a way to determine whether a theory in physics is absolutely true. Oxford's mathematical physicist Roger Penrose is among those who believe that Godel's theorems argue powerfully for the very existence of a Platonic mathematical world. #Quote by Mario Livio
Computer quotes by Frederick Lenz
#48. Atlantis was a highly evolved civilization where the sciences and arts were far more advanced than one might guess. Atlantis was technologically advanced in genetic engineering, computer science, inter-dimensional physics, and artistically developed with electronic music and crystal art forms. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Computer quotes by John Von Neumann
#49. Anyone who considers arithmetical methods of producing random digits is, of course, in a state of sin. #Quote by John Von Neumann
Computer quotes by Grace Hopper
#50. I had a running compiler and nobody would touch it. They told me computers could only do arithmetic. #Quote by Grace Hopper
Computer quotes by Andrew Southwood
#51. Some of the nicest people I've never met live inside my computer. #Quote by Andrew Southwood
Computer quotes by Steve Wozniak
#52. The Homebrew Computer Club was the highlight of my life. I was too shy to ever talk in the club meeting, but the way that I could communicate sometimes was by doing good designs. I was very skilled at a certain type of circuit design. #Quote by Steve Wozniak
Computer quotes by Tyler Cowen
#53. When humans team up with computers to play chess, the humans who do best are not necessarily the strongest players. They're the ones who are modest and who know when to listen to the computer. Often, what the human adds is knowledge of when the computer needs to look more deeply. #Quote by Tyler Cowen
Computer quotes by Midge Ure
#54. At the beginning of this album I discovered the computer and had great fun playing with the thing. And I realized that, not being a good keyboard player, I could write things in very small sections, give them a certain feel and mess about with bends on the keyboard. #Quote by Midge Ure
Computer quotes by Ken Thompson
#55. FORTRAN was the language of choice for the same reason that three-legged races are popular. #Quote by Ken Thompson
Computer quotes by Ron Livingston
#56. Human beings were not meant to sit in little cubicles staring at computer screens all day, filling out useless forms and listening to eight different bosses drone on about about mission statements. #Quote by Ron Livingston
Computer quotes by Tina J. Richardson
#57. At times i am so focused like i have been taken over by a remote controlled computer, although not user friendly. #Quote by Tina J. Richardson
Computer quotes by James Ellroy
#58. I don't have a cellphone or a computer. I deliberately circumscribe my mental life within the periods that I write about, and the power of Perfidia is that it's the result of complete immersion. I was there for the two years that it took me to write that book. #Quote by James Ellroy
Computer quotes by Lev Grossman
#59. They went around the room telling stories about how they'd gotten here. No two were exactly the same, but there was always a certain family resemblance. Somebody went looking for a lost ball in an alley, or a stray goat in a drainage ditch, or fallowed an inexplicable extra cable in the high school computer room which led to a server closet that had never been there before. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Computer quotes by P.D. James
#60. On the whole I'm glad; you can't mourn for unborn grandchildren when there never was a hope of them. This planet is doomed anyway. Eventually the sun will explode or cool and one small insignificant particle of the universe will disappear with only a tremble. If man is doomed to perish, then universal infertility is as painless a way as any. And there are, after all, personal compensations. For the last sixty years we have sycophantically pandered to the most ignorant, the most criminal and the most selfish section of society. Now, for the rest of our lives, we're going to be spared the intrusive barbarism of the young, their noise, their pounding, repetitive, computer-produced so-called music, their violence, their egotism disguised as idealism. My God, we might even succeed in getting rid of Christmas, that annual celebration of parental guilt and juvenile greed. I intend that my life shall be comfortable, and, when it no longer is, then I shall wash down my final pill with a bottle of claret. #Quote by P.D. James
Computer quotes by Juliana Of The Netherlands
#61. I don't understand computers. I don't even understand people who understand computers. #Quote by Juliana Of The Netherlands
Computer quotes by Yuri Manin
#62. Of the properties of mathematics, as a language, the most peculiar one is that by playing formal games with an input mathematical text, one can get an output text which seemingly carries new knowledge. The basic examples are furnished by scientific or technological calculations: general laws plus initial conditions produce predictions, often only after time-consuming and computer-aided work. One can say that the input contains an implicit knowledge which is thereby made explicit. #Quote by Yuri Manin
Computer quotes by Leah Hager Cohen
#63. Increasing pressure on students to subject themselves to ever more tests, whittling themselves down to rows and rows of tight black integers upon a transcript, all ready to goose-step straight into a computer. #Quote by Leah Hager Cohen
Computer quotes by Paul Bettany
#64. You'll still work with some directors where that doesn't happen, and sometimes it's out of necessity because you're in a really complicated, choreographed fight scene and the whole thing is being prevised in a computer, so it's been decided months before, but I think that's sneaking into the way action scenes are shot. #Quote by Paul Bettany
Computer quotes by Gina Greenlee
#65. Turn off the radio, TV, DVD, iPod, computer and cell phone. Then, listen. #Quote by Gina Greenlee
Computer quotes by Dave Grohl
#66. In this day and age, when you can use a machine or computer to simulate or emulate what people can do together, it still can't replace the magic of four people in a room playing. #Quote by Dave Grohl
Computer quotes by Jonathan Zittrain
#67. The crucial legacy of the personal computer is that anyone can write code for it and give or sell that code to you - and the vendors of the PC and its operating system have no more to say about it than your phone company does about which answering machine you decide to buy. #Quote by Jonathan Zittrain
Computer quotes by Sandra Tsing Loh
#68. Nowadays, it is possible to perform various forms of Low-Impact listening via the telephone. The advent of technological advances such as computer games and online services (like ones that let you check stocks) have enabled Low-Impact listeners to endure family phone calls much longer than in the past. Dangers include mouse clicks, heavy typing, or a sudden loud buzzer that goes off when you have finished Boggle. #Quote by Sandra Tsing Loh
Computer quotes by Emily Giffin
#69. I still think I love him more. It's one of those things you never know for certain because there's no way to enter all the relationship data in a computer and have it spit out a definitive answer. You can't quantify love, and if you try, you wind up focusing on misleading factors. #Quote by Emily Giffin
Computer quotes by Alain Robbe-Grillet
#70. Memory belongs to the imagination. Human memory is not like a computer which records things; it is part of the imaginative process, on the same terms as invention. #Quote by Alain Robbe-Grillet
Computer quotes by Joseph Weizenbaum
#71. Putting a computer in front of a child and expecting it to teach him is like putting a book under his pillow, only more expensive #Quote by Joseph Weizenbaum
Computer quotes by @hg47
#72. Three Moonie 65-megaton hydrogen bombs exploded nearly simultaneously at very high altitude. With no air around the bombs to absorb the initial blast of the explosions, and convert the energy into mechanical shock waves - - all the nuclear energy blasted out in its electromagnetic form. It was a brutally intense pulse of Compton recoil electrons and photoelectrons that created huge electric and magnetic fields that were MURDER on sensitive electronic equipment at tremendous distances. The electro-magnetic fields, coupled with electric and computer systems, producing huge voltage spikes in the circuits and damaging current surges along all signal paths, fusing precision engineered memory and micro-boards and virtual drives and CPUs into fried silicon laced junk! Nanobots to Nanoscrap in Nanoseconds! #Quote by @hg47
Computer quotes by Hamza Charlemagne
#73. Geeks = Know more about computers than their computer teacher, so everyone comes to them for computer problems.
Nerds = Have no life and only worries about school, no one talks to them.
Jocks = Know a lot about sports but not much else.
Geek's Wife: Completely depend on the geek for tech support. Tend to be pretty good looking.
Nerd's Wife: nonexistent
Jock's Wife: only there for money, most likely having an affair with another jock

See Geeks are the best! #Quote by Hamza Charlemagne
Computer quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#74. If I tried to write long-hand, I suppose I'd never finish a novel. I edit too much as I write - the paper would be "white-out" and sharpie marks. Writing with a computer works for me, so I stick with it. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Computer quotes by Roger Penrose
#75. In order for A to apply to computations generally, we shall need a way of coding all the different computations C(n) so that A can use this coding for its action. All the possible different computations C can in fact be listed, say as

C0, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5,...,

and we can refer to Cq as the qth computation. When such a computation is applied to a particular number n, we shall write

C0(n), C1(n), C2(n), C3(n), C4(n), C5(n),....

We can take this ordering as being given, say, as some kind of numerical ordering of computer programs. (To be explicit, we could, if desired, take this ordering as being provided by the Turing-machine numbering given in ENM, so that then the computation Cq(n) is the action of the qth Turing machine Tq acting on n.) One technical thing that is important here is that this listing is computable, i.e. there is a single computation Cx that gives us Cq when it is presented with q, or, more precisely, the computation Cx acts on the pair of numbers q, n (i.e. q followed by n) to give Cq(n).

The procedure A can now be thought of as a particular computation that, when presented with the pair of numbers q,n, tries to ascertain that the computation Cq(n) will never ultimately halt. Thus, when the computation A terminates, we shall have a demonstration that Cq(n) does not halt. Although, as stated earlier, we are shortly going to try to imagine that A might be a formalization of all the procedures that are ava #Quote by Roger Penrose
Computer quotes by Andy Summers
#76. As an artist, I move along in my life, into whatever things I'm doing, and I hear things where it's like, "Oh, that'd be a great [song] title! I'll use that!" So I keep a running list of titles on my computer. I've got these words and phrases that just sustained my interest. So I'm a step ahead, really, with the titling! #Quote by Andy Summers
Computer quotes by Charles Wheelan
#77. Here is one of the most important things to remember when doing research that involves regression analysis: Try not to kill anyone. You can even put a little Post-it note on your computer monitor: "Do not kill people with your research." Because some very smart people have inadvertently violated that rule. #Quote by Charles Wheelan
Computer quotes by Neal Stephenson
#78. Y.T. knows he's a computer guy because he has long hair in a ponytail and he's wearing jeans and he seems gentle. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Computer quotes by Marc Goodman
#79. The noted Yale computer science professor Edward Tufte once observed that there are only two industries that refer to their customers as users: computer designers and drug dealers. Importantly, you are equally as likely to recover damages from either of them for the harms their products cause. #Quote by Marc Goodman
Computer quotes by Jeff Hawkins
#80. The neocortex is not like a computer, parallel or otherwise. Instead of computing answers to problems the neocortex uses stored memories to solve problems and produce behavior. #Quote by Jeff Hawkins
Computer quotes by Ali Banisadr
#81. Think about the way you go surfing on the Internet - you go from one thing to another. You can't really concentrate. I can't sit and read 10 pages on my computer. You'll read and then all of a sudden part of your brain is like, What about that? ... You're not reading the whole book. You're reading fragments. Even though I think it's bad, I think it's interesting too, because that's the way my brain works. #Quote by Ali Banisadr
Computer quotes by John Stossel
#82. Any money the government spends must be taxed, borrowed or conjured out of thin air by the Federal Reserve, and that will reduce sound private investment. Obama has no real wealth to inject into the economy. He can only move around existing money while inflation robs us of purchasing power. Meanwhile, private investors who might have produced a better engine, battery, computer, cancer treatment or other wealth-creating and life-enhancing innovations hold back for fear that big government will undermine productive efforts. #Quote by John Stossel
Computer quotes by Mira Grant
#83. See, Berkeley has always drawn the nuts and flakes of the academic world. That's what happens when you have a university that offers degrees in both computer science and parapsychology. #Quote by Mira Grant
Computer quotes by John Naisbitt
#84. We created the hierarchical, pyramidal, managerial system because we needed it to keep track of people and things people did; with the computer to keep track, we can restructure our institutions horizontally. #Quote by John Naisbitt
Computer quotes by Douglas Trumbull
#85. Clearly, if we'd had the kind of computer graphics capability then that we have now, the Star Gate sequence would be much more complex than flat planes of light and color. #Quote by Douglas Trumbull
Computer quotes by Peter Jackson
#86. Over 55% of all shots using animals in 'The Hobbit' are in fact computer generated; this includes horses, ponies, rabbits, hedgehogs, birds, deer, elk, mice, wild boars and wolves. #Quote by Peter Jackson
Computer quotes by Rick Boucher
#87. I actually use a computer a lot. I have three computers that I use on a regular basis - one is on my desk top in my Washington office, another is at home, and I have my laptop that I use when I'm travelling. #Quote by Rick Boucher
Computer quotes by A. N. Wilson
#88. There is no doubt that, since 1977 and the launch of Apple II - the first computer it produced for the mass market - many things which used to be done on paper, or on the telephone, have been done easier and faster on a screen. #Quote by A. N. Wilson
Computer quotes by Raymond E. Feist
#89. If I leave my computer, I'm probably not going to get back for hours. If I take a few minutes to answer questions and go web surfing, then guilt kicks in and I get back to work. #Quote by Raymond E. Feist
Computer quotes by Misha Glenny
#90. In humanity's relentless drive for convenience and economic growth, we have developed a dangerous level of dependency on networked systems in a very short space of time: in less than two decades, huge parts of the so-called 'critical national infrastructure' (CNI in geekish) in most countries have come under the control of ever more complex computer systems. #Quote by Misha Glenny
Computer quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#91. Believe me, that nap is better than sitting there for three hours and nothing's coming. I've learned that even if I've slept nine hours and I just finished breakfast, if I feel sleepy when I'm in front of that computer, I'll take a nap. And it really does help. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Computer quotes by Wim Crouwel
#92. You can't do better design with a computer, but you can speed up your work enormously. #Quote by Wim Crouwel
Computer quotes by David Macklovitch
#93. I guess that's a big problem with working with computers - you've got the luxury to keep tweaking the songs until the last second and beyond. So I don't think I'll ever have that feeling, unless I'm the one finishing the track. #Quote by David Macklovitch
Computer quotes by Terence McKenna
#94. The only difference between a drug and a computer is that one is slightly too large to swallow ... And our best people are working on that problem, even as we speak. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Computer quotes by Frederick Lenz
#95. Artificial Intelligence is creating a mind, hopefully as pure a mind as possible, for a computer. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Computer quotes by Henry Petroski
#96. What is commonly overlooked in using the computer is the fact that the central goal of design is still to obviate failure, and thus it is critical to identify exactly how a structure may fail. The computer cannot do this by itself ... #Quote by Henry Petroski
Computer quotes by Stephen R. Covey
#97. In our quest for short-term returns, or results, we often ruin a prized physical asset - a car, a computer, a washer or dryer, even our body or our environment. Keeping P and PC in balance makes a tremendous difference in the effective use of physical assets. #Quote by Stephen R. Covey

Computer quotes by John Updike
#101. A computer and a cat are somewhat alike - they both purr, and like to be stroked, and spend a lot of the day motionless. They also have secrets they don't necessarily share. #Quote by John Updike
Computer quotes by Robert Anton Wilson
#102. The minority who actually loves its work seems to be made up chiefly of the writers, dancers, actors and other artists, most scientists above the technician-troll level, computer freaks, and the righteous dope-dealers of California. #Quote by Robert Anton Wilson

Computer quotes by John Ridley
#105. I like animals. I like people who like animals. I hate people who love animals to the point they lose their sense of reason. I'm talking the 'my computer wallpaper is my dog,' 'I hang a Christmas stocking for my cat' crowd. #Quote by John Ridley
Computer quotes by Elmar Hussein
#106. İt is not true that the more you read, the more intelligent you become. Without thinking you cannot be intelligent. You need to think in order to avoid ready-form answers, which can satisfy the inquisitive mind, but cannot give a clear insight into anything, making the brain only some kind of container of various information similar to the microchip of robot or computer. You would become a social robot whose brain contains various information but cannot think. That is why most men know a lot, but learn nothing from that knowledge. Most men know a lot, but can understand nothing on the base of that knowledge. However, it is not also true that the more you think, the more intelligent you become. Without reading you cannot be intelligent. You need to read, especially scientific literature, in order to model any problem which fascinates your mind in a proper and clear way. There cannot be vacuum in the human mind, if there is no scientific rationality there, then mystical irrationality would cover the whole space in your mind. There is no need to emphasize that being under the strong influence of mystical irrationality would confuse your mind more and more. But if scientific rationality appears, mystical irrationality disappears immediately. #Quote by Elmar Hussein
Computer quotes by Alain De Botton
#107. Logically enough, the office and the nunnery have been singularly popular in the imaginations of pornographers. We should not be surprised to learn that the erotic novels of the early modern period were overwhelmingly focused on debauchery and flagellation amongst clergy in vespers and chapels, just as contemporary Internet pornography is inordinately concerned with fellatios and sodomies performed by office workers against a backdrop of work stations and computer equipment. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Computer quotes by Rebecca Skloot
#108. Nader's data could not have been clearer, or more unsettling. He demonstrated that the very act of remembering something makes it vulnerable to change. Like a text recalled from a computer's hard drive, each memory was subject to editing. First you have to search the computer for the the text and then bring it to the screen, at which point you can alter it and save it. Whether the changes are slight or extensive, the new document is never quite the same as the original. #Quote by Rebecca Skloot
Computer quotes by Ted Nelson
#109. But it seemed to me that as soon as you have computer storage you could put every point you wanted in - make the ones that are less relevant to your central topic, further away or allow the central topic to move as the reader proceeded. #Quote by Ted Nelson
Computer quotes by Mary Ellen Mark
#110. I'm staying with film, and with silver prints, and no Photoshop. That's the way I learned photography: You make your picture in the camera. Now, so much is made in the computer ... I'm not anti-digital; I just think, for me, film works better. #Quote by Mary Ellen Mark
Computer quotes by Denis Leary
#111. My kids watch everything downloaded; they have no idea what the numbers or the names of the channels mean, except, 'FX makes the show that I see on my computer.' So it's harder to get a show on the air, but at the same time, there are a lot of terrific shows. #Quote by Denis Leary

Computer quotes by Larry Niven
#114. Johnny, did you ever hear of the Club of Rome?" Johnny had, but the audience would need reminding. "They were the people who did computer simulations to find out how long we could get along on our natural resources. Even with zero population growth - " "They tell us we're finished," Sharps broke in. "And that's stupid. We're only finished because they won't let us really use technology. They say we're running out of metals. There's more metal in one little asteroid than was mined all over the world in the last five years! And there are hundreds of thousands of asteroids. All we have to do is go get 'em." "Can we?" "You bet! Even with the technology we already have, we could do it. Johnny, out there in space it's raining soup, and we don't even know about soup bowls. #Quote by Larry Niven

Computer quotes by Laurelin Paige
#116. Megan resumes darting her eyes back and forth between me and my sperm donor.

"So," she says after several seconds pass in silence. "Is someone going to fill me in?"

"There's nothing to fill," I say, then blush because I'm a bad liar and because Chase has been filling me quite well.

Apparently, he's also turned me into a pervert.

Megan narrows her eyes. "Are the two of you…?"

"No!" Chase and I say at once. Like that's not obvious.

"I'm helping Pop with his computer," I say in a rush, eager to make this situation seem anything other than what it is. Though, at this point, I'm not sure what it is. This morning's activities have had nothing at all to do with our contractual agreement.

"Ah. I see." Megan doesn't seem convinced, but she turns to her grandfather anyway, and says, "I told you Phil would help you with that, Pop."

"She's nicer than Phil," Pop says, nodding in my direction. "She's prettier than him, too." He winks as though he knows he's part of a cover-up.

And because I've completely fallen for this old man, I wink back. #Quote by Laurelin Paige
Computer quotes by John Sandford
#117. he thought a bit about God, and whether He might be some kind of universal digital computer, subject to the occasional bug or hack. Was it possible that politicians and hedge-fund operators were some kind of garbled cosmic computer code? That the Opponent, instead of having horns and a forked tail, was a fat bearded guy drinking Big Gulps and eating anchovy pizzas and writing viruses down in a hellish basement? That prayers weren't answered because Satan was running denial-of-service attacks? #Quote by John Sandford
Computer quotes by Vint Cerf
#118. 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. #Quote by Vint Cerf
Computer quotes by T. Harv Eker
#119. Your programming leads to your thoughts; your thoughts lead to your feelings; your feelings lead to your actions; your actions leads to your results. Therefore, just as is done with a personal computer, by changing your programming, you take the first essential step to changing your results. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Computer quotes by Shashi Tharoor

Computer quotes by William Hall
#122. Given the central place that technology holds in our lives, it is astonishing that technology companies have not put more resources into fixing this global problem. Advanced computer systems and artificial intelligence (AI) could play a much bigger role in shaping diagnosis and prescription. While the up-front costs of using such technology may be sizeable, the long-term benefits to the health-care system need to be factored into value assessments.
We believe that AI platforms could improve on the empirical prescription approach. Physicians work long hours under stressful conditions and have to keep up to date on the latest medical research. To make this work more manageable, the health-care system encourages doctors to specialize. However, the vast majority of antibiotics are prescribed either by generalists (e.g., general practitioners or emergency physicians) or by specialists in fields other than infectious disease, largely because of the need to treat infections quickly. An AI system can process far more information than a single human, and, even more important, it can remember everything with perfect accuracy. Such a system could theoretically enable a generalist doctor to be as effective as, or even superior to, a specialist at prescribing. The system would guide doctors and patients to different treatment options, assigning each a probability of success based on real-world data. The physician could then consider which treatment was most appropriate. #Quote by William Hall
Computer quotes by Val McDermid
#123. The hardest thing about being a grown up is realizing there are no magic formulas to release the ones we love from pain. Maybe that's why I enjoy computer games so much; you get to be God. #Quote by Val McDermid

Computer quotes by Chris Baio
#125. I could go play some songs for two hours every week - play whatever I wanted to - and then also spend that time putting more music on my computer and getting into more things. It definitely informs the way that I think about music and I think in general, made me a more open-minded consumer of music. #Quote by Chris Baio

Computer quotes by Mark Haddon
#128. I think I would make a very good astronaut.
To be a good astronaut you have to be intelligent and I'm intelligent. You also have to understand how machines work and I'm good at understanding how machines work. You also have to be someone who would like being on their own in a tiny spacecraft thousands and thousands of miles away from the surface of the earth and not panic or get claustrophobia or homesick or insane. And I really like little spaces, so long as there is no one else in them with me. Sometimes when I want to be on my own I get into the airing cupboard outside the bathroom and slide in beside the boiler and pull the door closed behind me and sit there and think for hours and it makes me feel very calm.
So I would have to be an astronaut on my own, or have my own part of the space craft which no one else could come into.
And also there are no yellow things or brown things in a space craft, so that would be okay too.
And I would have to talk to other people from Mission Control, but we would do that through a radio linkup and a TV monitor, so they wouldn't be like real people who are strangers, but it would be like playing a computer game.
Also I wouldn't be homesick at all because I'd be surrounded by things I like, which are machines and computers and outer space. And I would be able to look out of a little window in the spacecraft and know that there was no one near me for thousands and thousands of miles, which is what I sometimes preten #Quote by Mark Haddon

Computer quotes by Michio Kaku
#134. An even more advanced form of uploading your mind into a computer was envisioned by computer scientist Hans Moravec. When I interviewed him, he claimed that his method of uploading the human mind could even be done without losing consciousness.

First you would be placed on a hospital gurney, next to a robot. Then a surgeon would take individual neurons from your brain and create a duplicate of these neurons (made of transistors) inside the robot. A cable would connect these transistorized neurons to your brain. As time goes by, more and more neurons are removed from your brain and duplicated in the robot. Because your brain is connected to the robot brain, you are fully conscious even as more and more neurons are replaced by transistors. Eventually, without losing consciousness, your entire brain and all its neurons are replaced by transistors. Once all one hundred billion neurons have been duplicated, the connection between you abd the artificial brain is finally cut. When you gaze back at the stretcher, you see your body, lacking its brain, while your consciousness now exists inside a robot. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Computer quotes by Chetan M. Kumbhar

Computer quotes by Bill Gates
#137. The best way to prepare [to be a programmer] is to write programs, and to study great programs that other people have written. In my case, I went to the garbage cans at the Computer Science Center and I fished out listings of their operating systems. #Quote by Bill Gates
Computer quotes by Massimo Vignelli
#138. The computer needs ... even by accident, offers incredible beautiful things that are very seductive. And if you forget about, or if you don't have an idea to begin with, it is very easy to be seduced and that is not a good use of the computer. #Quote by Massimo Vignelli
Computer quotes by Mary Gaitskill
#139. 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. #Quote by Mary Gaitskill
Computer quotes by Clive Thompson
#140. 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. #Quote by Clive Thompson
Computer quotes by Andy Weir
#141. Back in the days of Apollo, sending humans to the moon was the only viable way to get the scientific data we wanted. But now, with our computer and robotics technology, there's very little an astronaut can do on Mars that a well-designed rover can't. #Quote by Andy Weir
Computer quotes by Robert C. Martin

Computer quotes by Scott McNealy
#143. Every time you turn on your new car, you're turning on 20 microprocessors. Every time you use an ATM, you're using a computer. Every time I use a settop box or game machine, I'm using a computer. The only computer you don't know how to work is your Microsoft computer, right? #Quote by Scott McNealy
Computer quotes by John Perry Barlow
#144. Google, Amazon, Apple. Any number of cloud providers and computer service providers who can increasingly limit your access to your own information, control all your processing, take away your data if they want to, and observe everything you do; in a way, that does give them some leverage over your own life. #Quote by John Perry Barlow
Computer quotes by Ray Kurzweil
#145. Those with engineering skills will build tomorrow's genius computers. But those with the ability to create knowledge of any kind will be the ones who are best able to extract great value from them. The way to create value in the age of genius machines will be to compile and disseminate knowledge that other people will find useful. #Quote by Ray Kurzweil
Computer quotes by Jill Abramson

Computer quotes by Emma Chase
#147. On the third day after all hell broke loose, I come upstairs to the apartment, finished with my shift and so looking forward to a hot shower. Well, lukewarm - but I'll pretend it's hot.

But when I pass Ellie's room, I hear cursing - Linda Blair-Exorcist-head-spinning-around kind of cursing. I push open her door and spot my sister at her little desk, yelling at her laptop.

Even Bosco barks from the bed.

"What's going on?" I ask. "I just came up but Marty's down there on his own - he won't last longer than ten minutes."

"I know, I know." She waves her hand. "I'm in a flame war with a toxic bitch on Twitter. Let me just huff and puff and burn her motherfucking house down…and then I'll go sell some coffee."

"What happened?" I ask sarcastically. "Did she insult your makeup video?"

Ellie sighs, long and tortured. "That's Instagram, Liv - I seriously think you were born in the wrong century. And anyway, she didn't insult me - she insulted you."

Her words pour over me like the ice-bucket challenge.

"Me? I have like two followers on Twitter."

Ellie finishes typing. "Boo-ya. Take that, skank-a-licious!" Then she turns slowly my way. "You haven't been online lately, have you?"

This isn't going to end well, I know it. My stomach knows it too - it whines and grumbles.

"Ah, no?"

Ellie nods and stands, gesturing to her computer. "You might want to check it out. #Quote by Emma Chase
Computer quotes by Mario Livio
#148. Wolfram, one of the most innovative thinkers in scientific computing and in the theory of complex systems, has been best known for the development of Mathematica, a computer program/system that allows a range of calculations not accessible before. After ten years of virtual silence, Wolfram is about to emerge with a provocative book that makes the bold claim that he can replace the basic infrastructure of science. In a world used to more than three hundred years of science being dominated by mathematical equations as the basic building blocks of models for nature, Wolfram proposes simple computer programs instead. He suggests that nature's main secret is the use of simple programs to generate complexity. #Quote by Mario Livio
Computer quotes by Dalma Heyn

Computer quotes by Val McDermid
#151. It's a piece of cake, being a lawyer or a doctor or a computer systems analyst or an accountant. Libraries are full of books telling you how to do it. The only textbooks for private eyes are on fiction shelves, and I don't remember ever reading one that told me how to interrogate an eight-year old without feeling like I was auditioning for the Gestapo. #Quote by Val McDermid

Computer quotes by Steve Silberman
#162. During World War II, the British spy agency MI8 secretly recruited a crew of teenage wireless operators (prohibited from discussing their activities even with their families) to intercept coded messages from the Nazis. By forwarding these transmissions to the crack team of code breakers at Bletchley Park led by the computer pioneer Alan Turing, these young hams enabled the Allies to accurately predict the movements of the German and Italian forces. Asperger's prediction that the little professors in his clinic could one day aid in the war effort had been prescient, but it was the Allies who reaped the benefits. #Quote by Steve Silberman
Computer quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#163. Everybody wants to have sex - you don't have to have a baby when you're 16. You don't have to do drugs. I think our Sunday schools should be turned into Black history schools and computer schools on the weekend, just like Hebrew schools for Jewish people, or my Asian friends who send their kids to schools on the weekend to learn Chinese or Korean. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates

#164. The most important property of a program is whether it accomplishes the intention of its user. #Quote by C.A.R. Hoare
Computer quotes by Douglas Adams
#165. For instance, a race of hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings once built themselves a gigantic supercomputer called Deep Thought to calculate once and for all the Question to the Ultimate Answer of Life, the Universe and Everything. For seven and a half million years, Deep Thought computed and calculated, and in the end announced that the answer was in fact Forty-two - and so another, even bigger, computer had to be built to find out what the actual question was. And this computer, which was called the Earth, was so large that it was frequently mistaken for a planet - especially by the strange apelike beings who roamed its surface, totally unaware that they were simply part of a gigantic computer program. And this is very odd, because without that fairly simple and obvious piece of knowledge, nothing that ever happened on the Earth could possibly make the slightest bit of sense. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Computer quotes by John Morgridge

Computer quotes by Alan Chains
#175. What is the next unit of time after milliseconds?"
"Microseconds."
"Correct. What is the next?"
"Nanoseconds."
"There you go," the professor revealed. "Computers and androids like Christmas operate on nanoseconds. A nanosecond to them is a precision unit like a millisecond to you and I. Now try to think what doing something for fifteen minutes is to them. A millisecond is one million nanoseconds. One second is one billion nanoseconds. A minute is sixty billion nanoseconds. Fifteen minutes equals to nine hundred billion nanoseconds. Multiply that by a million for scale - that's the disparity between a human precision unit and a computer precision unit we first talked about. What do you get? Nine hundred quadrillion nanoseconds. That is ten thousand four hundred seventeen days, one thousand four hundred eighty-eight weeks, three hundred forty-two months. That is twenty-eight point five years. Does that seem like ages to you or what?" (What constitutes "ages" to machines) #Quote by Alan Chains
Computer quotes by Michael Crichton
#176. We have created a man with not one brain but two ... This new brain is intended to control the biological brain ... The patient's biological brain is the peripheral terminal
the only peripheral terminal
for the new computer ... And therefore the patient's biological brain, indeed his whole body, has become a terminal for the new computer. We have created a man who is one single, large, complex computer terminal. The patient is a read-out device for the new computer, and is helpless to control the readout as a TV screen is helpless to control the information presented on it. #Quote by Michael Crichton

Computer quotes by Dan Ariely
#183. Another company came up with an even more brilliant idea --- that nobody could own their own cubicle -- designing the system such that those who showed up to work earliest in the morning could claim the ones closest to the windows. None of the cubicles had anything but a desk, a place to connect a computer, and a chair. No one could establish a sense of connection to their workspace. Ultimately, by setting the atmosphere this way, the company communicated to the employees that they are valued only for their direct productivity and that they are easily replaceable. #Quote by Dan Ariely

#184. It's funny, because I'm so associated with digital art and computer art, and yet I spend so little time in front of the computer. #Quote by Keith Fullerton Whitman
Computer quotes by Edward Tufte
#185. There are only two industries that refer to their customers as 'users'. #Quote by Edward Tufte
Computer quotes by Barry Lyga
#186. Thanks to the very best in Microsoft/Intel engineering, it crashes every time you exhale too hard in its general vicinity.

Computer quotes by Leonard Nimoy
#187. I use a computer. I don't know if that qualifies me as a techie, but I'm pretty good on the computer. #Quote by Leonard Nimoy

Computer quotes by Anonymous
#189. First of all, when we are all finished, and we have a mathematical theory by which we can compute consequences, what can we do? It really is an amazing thing. In order to figure out what an atom is going to do in a given situation we make up rules with marks on paper, carry them into a machine which has switches that open and close in some complicated way, and the result will tell us what the atom is going to do! If the way that these switches open and close were some kind of model of the atom, if we thought that the atom had switches in it, then I would say that I understood more or less what is going on. I find it quite amazing that it is possible to predict what will happen by mathematics, which is simply following rules which really have nothing to do with what is going on in the original thing. The closing and opening of switches in a computer is quite different from what is happening in nature. #Quote by Anonymous
Computer quotes by Adam Alter
#190. Walter Isaacson, who ate dinner with the Jobs family while researching his biography of Steve Jobs, told Bilton that, "No one ever pulled out an iPad or computer. The kids did not seem addicted at all to devices." It seemed as if the people producing tech products were following the cardinal rule of drug dealing: never get high on your own supply. #Quote by Adam Alter
Computer quotes by Neal Stephenson
#191. It's not about how women are deficient. It's more about how men are deficient. Our social deficiencies, lack of perspective, or whatever you want to call it, is what enables us to study one species of dragonfly for twenty years, or sit in front of a computer for a hundred hours a week writing code. This is not the behavior of a well-balanced and healthy person, but it can obviously lead to great advances in synthetic fibers. Or whatever. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Computer quotes by Ray William Johnson
#192. At the end of the day, a television, a computer, or a smart phone is just a device through which one can access content. The content itself is what matters, not the device. #Quote by Ray William Johnson
Computer quotes by Daniel H. Pink
#193. Finally, at every opportunity you have to move someone - from traditional sales, like convincing a prospect to buy a new computer system, to non-sales selling, like persuading your daughter to do her homework - be sure you can answer the two questions at the core of genuine service. If the person you're selling to agrees to buy, will his or her life improve? When your interaction is over, will the world be a better place than when you began? If the answer to either of these questions is no, you're doing something wrong. #Quote by Daniel H. Pink
Computer quotes by Gerald Griffin
#194. There cannot be any better cross-section of America and I think the soldiers represent the best we have. Today's soldiers are brighter and smarter, perhaps in a different way, than past generations because they've been brought up in the computer and information age. #Quote by Gerald Griffin
Computer quotes by Margot Lee Shetterly
#195. But before a computer became an inanimate object, and before Mission Control landed in Houston; before Sputnik changed the course of history, and before the NACA became NASA; before the Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka established that separate was in fact not equal, and before the poetry of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech rang out over the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Langley's West Computers were helping America dominate aeronautics, space research, and computer technology, carving out a place for themselves as female mathematicians who were also black, black mathematicians who were also female. #Quote by Margot Lee Shetterly
Computer quotes by Rebecca Sparrow
#196. You know what your mum might be?'

'You're not really asking, are you? This is rhetorical, isn't it?'

'A real life desperate housewife. Maybe your mum's hooking and she -'

"What are you, drunk? There's a five-year-old in the back seat. And, PS, you're not helping. All she said is that she's at the station. Not in jail. Now, I don't want to talk anymore about it.

Mark and I spend the remainder of the car trip in silence. Emma, on the other hand, takes it upon herself to sing every verse of It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp. Next chance I get I'm gonna confiscate her copy of Hustle and Flow and change her computer password from GEELOVE to MONOBROW.

Computer quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#198. [O]ur attitudes towards things like race or gender operate on two levels. First of all, we have our conscious attitudes. This is what we choose to believe. These are our stated values, which we use to direct our behavior deliberately . . . But the IAT [Implicit Association Test] measures something else. It measures our second level of attitude, our racial attitude on an unconscious level - the immediate, automatic associations that tumble out before we've even had time to think. We don't deliberately choose our unconscious attitudes. And . . . we may not even be aware of them. The giant computer that is our unconscious silently crunches all the data it can from the experiences we've had, the people we've met, the lessons we've learned, the books we've read, the movies we've seen, and so on, and it forms an opinion. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Computer quotes by Julia Angwin
#199. Some research suggests that collecting vast amounts of data simply can't predict rare events like terrorism. A 2006 paper by Jeff Jonas, an IBM research scientist, and Jim Harper, the director of information policy at the Cato Institute, concluded that terrorism events aren't common enough to lend themselves to large-scale computer data mining. #Quote by Julia Angwin
Computer quotes by Theo Jansen
#200. I can be fascinated with very little things. The clouds stimulate my imagination, and sometimes I just sit somewhere and go on dreaming for a long time. Your head is also a computer. When you're dreaming, you are simulating a world in which you are living. #Quote by Theo Jansen
