I worked at a local country club that I never belonged to. I did random tasks in the pro shop and supposed to be in charge of the register, but that didn't go so well. They quickly realized I was better with people, not computers.
As smartphones have allowed us to have our computers, emails, social media feeds, and a full surveillance system in our pockets at all times, stories of the law enforcement's unease with that have been popping up in the press. And of course, the ones that become viral videos aren't exactly flattering for law enforcement.
Everyone knows, or should know, that everything we type on our computers or say into our cell phones is being disseminated throughout the datasphere. And most of it is recorded and parsed by big data servers. Why do you think Gmail and Facebook are free? You think they're corporate gifts? We pay with our data.
The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation.
People are good at figuring out what's attractive, and computers are good at quickly searching and finding. You put them together, and bang!
Luis von Ahn
I've always been slightly embittered about computers because it was the only subject I failed at school.
I don't type on the computer or edit. Law students who went to law school really just a couple years after I did were brought up all on the computers and that's how they do it, but I was still part of the older school.
Computers seem a little too adaptively flexible, like the strange natives, odd societies, and head cases we study in the social sciences. There's more opposable thumb in the digital world than I care for; it's awfully close to human.
P. J. O'Rourke
I'm interested in all kinds of pictures, however they are made, with cameras, with paint brushes, with computers, with anything.
I fix my grandchildren's computers.
My love of computers, besides being practical, is very direct and visceral. I love the way things look on the screen.
If I wasn't a professional scientist, I'd be an amateur scientist. But plan B was to go into computers.
Computers allow us to squeeze the most out of everything, whether it's Google looking up things, so I guess that tends to make us a little lazy about reading books and doing things the hard way to understand how those things work.
Pixar is not about computers, it's about people.
Dell fills its computers with crapware, collecting fees from McAfee and other vendors to pre-install 'trial' versions.
I can live without endless television programmes and films just centered around computers. I can sort of live without that.
It was used for decades to describe talented computer enthusiasts, people whose skill at using computers to solve technical problems and puzzles was - and is - respected and admired by others possessing similar technical skills.
People are good at intuition, living our lives. What are computers good at? Memory.
Most computers today have built in backup software.
Google is working on self-driving cars, and they seem to work. People are so bad at driving cars that computers don't have to be that good to be much better.
I started with CB radio, ham radio, and eventually went into computers. And I was just fascinated with it. And back then, when I was in school, computer hacking was encouraged. It was an encouraged activity. In fact, I remember one of the projects my teacher gave me was writing a log-in simulator.
The early cyberpunk idea was that networked computers would let us do our work at home, as freelancers, and then transact directly with peers over networks. Digital technology would create tremendous slack, allow us to apply its asynchronous, decentralized qualities to our own work and lives.
My dad used to work at IBM, so we used to get discounts on computers and stuff, and I did have a ThinkPad.
I've always been at the intersection of computers and whatever they can revolutionize.
I hate the thought of my children being glued to a screen. Children only play on computers all day because their parents let them.
William Arthur Ward
