"Technology is the knack of so arranging the world that we don't have to
experience it." - Max Frisch
"Globalization, as defined by rich people like us, is a very nice thing...
you are talking about the Internet, you are talking about cell phones, you are
talking about computers. This doesn't affect two-thirds of the people of the
world." - Jimmy Carter
"The most important and urgent problems of the technology of today are no
longer the satisfactions of the primary needs or of archetypal wishes, but the
reparation of the evils and damages by the technology of yesterday. " -
"There are three roads to ruin; women, gambling and technicians. The most
pleasant is with women, the quickest is with gambling, but the surest is with
technicians." - Georges Pompidou
"Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what
they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand."
