Technology is ruled by two types of people: those who manage what they do not understand, and those who understand what they do not manage.

Mike Trout

Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road.

Stewart Brand

This is perhaps the most beautiful time in human history; it is really pregnant with all kinds of creative possibilities made possible by science and technology which now constitute the slave of man - if man is not enslaved by it.

Jonas Salk

Technology... the knack of so arranging the world that we don't have to experience it.

Max Frisch

For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.

Richard P. Feynman

It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity.

Albert Einstein

Predatory capitalism created a complex industrial system and an advanced technology; it permitted a considerable extension of democratic practice and fostered certain liberal values, but within limits that are now being pressed and must be overcome. It is not a fit system for the mid-twentieth century.

Noam Chomsky

As we go forward, I hope we're going to continue to use technology to make really big differences in how people live and work.

In the earliest days, this was a project I worked on with great passion because I wanted to solve the Defense Department's problem: it did not want proprietary networking and it didn't want to be confined to a single network technology.

Vinton Cerf

Science and technology multiple around us. To an increasing extent they dictate the languages in which we speak and think. Either we use those languages, or we remain mute.

Life on earth is hard. Competition for the necessities of life is fierce. How ridiculous to believe that the law of harsh survival would not be true elsewhere, or that it would be negated by the progress of technology in an advanced civilization...

Gregory Dale Bear

In this day and age if you've got the technology then it's vital to use that technology to track people down. The number on the database should be the maximum number you can get.

Anthony Charles Lynton Blair

My main problem with 64-bit binary is that its one extra compile to do every time you want to release binaries, so you have to maintain one build system for your 64-bit binary and then every time you have to make a build you have to make sure you get both the 32-bit and 64. Really honestly, theres not any kind of significant performance increase. If you have good compatibility youre able to run 32-bit binaries on a 64-bit machine, thats the performance you get. If you run a 64-bit binary, its not going to make much difference. The technology is cool, but theres really not that much point for doing it.

Timothee Besset

Id is both a technology and an art company, so we try to push the art and the technology to its edge on each game, and when you're into high-tech you want to make sure your game can run on several platforms, and you have some room to experiment with several architectures. We don't want to have a basic product, get it out the door, sell as many copies as we can, and then just do the next one. Everyone's putting a lot of soul into the games, and id has got enough money overhead to decide that they can afford to have game ports to show that technology is good on Linux and on Apple hardware.

Timothee Besset

Following the trail of events from some point in the past to a piece of modern technology is rather like a detective story, with you as the detective, knowing only as much as the people in the past do, and like them having to guess at what was likely to happen next.
