In one sense, the Internet is like the discovery of the printing press, only it's very different. The printing press gave us access to recorded knowledge.

My kids download 10 games. They play them all for two minutes. They throw away the eight they don't like. Then they play those last two obsessively for a month.

Sex is a discovery.

I've written books as acts of discovery: things I need to know and that I need to touch. And it's very dangerous work to deal with the most toxic internal elements... I feel like Madame Curie at my computer. I feel like I should be hemorrhaging from my eyes and ears.
A big part of making music is the discovery aspect, is the surprise aspect. That's why I think I'll always love sampling.

J. L. Austin
