"As a medium for the display of information, the printed page is superb [...] It affords enough resolution to meet the eye's demand. It presents enough information to occupy the reader for a convenient quantum of time. It offers great flexibility of font and format. It lets the reader control the mode and rate of inspection. It is small, light, movable, cuttable, clippable, pastable, replicable, disposable, and inexpensive."
-- J.C.R. Licklider, one of the scientists whose thoughts led to the
invention of the Internet, expressing early skepticism about
a paperless society in "Libraries of the Future" (1965)
"We want to see software done well, and we want everyone to have a good time doing it."
-- Cutter Senior Consultant Murray Cantor, at an executive roundtable
in Mexico City on Sep. 29 on software methods and software analytics
