Quotation of the Day for July 8, 2010
"A fashionable idea in technical circles is that quantity not only turns into quality at some extreme of scale, but also does so according to principles we already understand. Some of my colleagues think a million, or perhaps a billion, fragmentary insults will eventually yield wisdom that surpasses that of any well-thought-out essay, so long as sophisticated secret statistical algorithms recombine the fragments. I disagree."
- Jaron Lanier, virtual reality pioneer, discussing the Internet, from his 2010 book You Are Not a Gadget.
