Quote of the Day
The act of birth is the first experience of anxiety, and thus the source and prototype of the affect of anxiety.
In Henry Adams, I discovered not only the prototype of the modern thinker but also someone who is more interesting: a viper-toothed, puling, supercilious crank, thwarted in ambition, aging gracelessly, mad at the cosmos, and ashamed of his own jejune ideals. He is nevertheless very dear to me.
P. J. O'Rourke
I love taking an idea... to a prototype and then to a product that millions of people use.
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
If you are truly innovating, you don't have a prototype you can refer to.
Well, for over a year now at my desk, a prototype program of Luigi and Mario has been running on my monitor. We've been thinking about the game, and it may be something that could work on a completely new game system.
Everything about my journey to get Spanx off the ground entailed me having to be a salesperson - from going to the hosiery mills to get a prototype made to calling Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. I had to position myself to get five minutes in the door with buyers.
Renzo Piano and Richard Rogers's Centre Georges Pompidou of 1971-1977 - the true prototype of the modern museum as popular architectural spectacle - wound up costing so much more than planned that the French government solved the shortfall by cutting support for several regional museums.
From the early days of European migration to America, in the 17th Century, the prototype of buildings was based on English precedent, even if mostly translated into the locally available material in abundance: timber.
Building a house from scratch in the middle of a field is a bit like building a prototype car. As with all prototypes, if you're building a car you usually have the luxury of producing several prototypes before you arrive at the production line version - so the opportunity for changing things is quite rich.
Unfortunately, the client that exists today is still pretty much the prototype design.
The Romantic poets were the prototype ramblers, and I've often found myself following in their footsteps - although perhaps not all of their footsteps since a typical walk for Samuel T. Coleridge might last two days and cover 145km.
They call me before they go into production, when they have a prototype, and they call legitimate saxophonists, too. As opposed to the other kind.
There is no modern prototype for a campus. You have to have a completely different model which has to do with transparency and exposing social connectivity and breaking down the Balkanization that happens departmentally.

The first album is a classic record and I think the prototype of a sound that no one else does.
After building most of Mint.com's prototype by myself, I talked to anyone and everyone I knew about Mint.

I focus on consumer Internet. Sometimes it's a working prototype; sometimes it's an idea on a napkin. I don't do a ton of deals a year, and I really like working with startups - it's the only way I can invest. It fits my ADD brain.
I spent much of my life dying for somebody to help me even file for a patent or make a prototype. I understand that.
When I was a kid in the mid-'60s, I was what's known as a moddie boy, a prototype skinhead.

It was a thriving soul music, Motown and ska scene; we used to dance to Prince Buster and the Skatalites.
Once you understand business models you can then start prototyping business models just like you prototype products.

My journey is about believing that people will actually stick around. It's a hard thing to believe when you don't have a prototype for it. I've had to develop that for myself.
As a writer, I always think about who my prototype actors are, in my brain. It's helpful, as a writer, to think about that.
Thenewno2 is sort of my little prototype band, really.
