Quote of the Day

It's 5 P.M. at the office. Working fast, you've finished your tasks for the day and want to go home. But none of your colleagues have left yet, so you stay another hour or two, surfing the Web and reading your e-mails again, so you don't come off as a slacker. It's an unfortunate reality that efficiency often goes unrewarded in the workplace.
I have a Web site that parents and girls can use to learn about Title IX and take action if they find their school is not in compliance. Thirty years after Title IX passed, 80 percent of schools are not in compliance.
The Web and new technology offer more opportunities to reach a world market at a lower price. Today, a person can start a business at home and reach the world market.
I'm kind of glad the web is sort of totally anarchic. That's fine with me.
Domination and monopoly is the name of the game in the web marketplace.
The web of domination has become the web of Reason itself, and this society is fatally entangled in it.
Nobody is forcing anybody who is uncomfortable with the terms of service to use Facebook. Executives point out that Internet users have choices on the Web.
I think for a young journalist, it's better to write for the Web at the moment than it is for print.
I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words.

When something is such a creative medium as the web, the limits to it are our imagination.
Web sites are designed to keep young people from using the keyboard, except to enter in their parents' credit card information.

It's interesting that people throughout the existence of the web have been concerned about monopolies.
Infrastructure web services had to happen.
Everybody who runs a Web site knows we're not assured of compatibility, and we could end up with a split.
We could say we want the Web to reflect a vision of the world where everything is done democratically. To do that, we get computers to talk with each other in such a way as to promote that ideal.
Ghostery lets you spy on the spies in your computer. For each web page you visit, this extension uncloaks some - but not all - of the invisible tracking software that is working behind the scenes.
The Internet exposes a diversity of opinion, experience, and taste we'd been led to believe didn't exist. If you were unusual in 1950 or 1980 - and everyone is unusual in one way or another - you were an isolated anomaly. Now you're a Web ring, a Yahoo category.
That idea of URL was the basic clue to the universality of the Web. That was the only thing I insisted upon.
For many people, Google is the most important tool on the Web.
The challenge is to manage the Web in an open way-not too much bureaucracy, not subject to political or commercial pressures. The U.S. should demonstrate that it is prepared to share control with the world.
I think there's a future where the Web and print coexist and they each do things uniquely and complement each other, and we have what could be the ultimate and best-yet array of journalistic venues.
Compared even to the development of the phone or TV, the Web developed very quickly.
