Quotation of the Day for July 2, 2013

"But the Internet's social impact is shallow. Imagine life without it. Would the loss of e-mail, Facebook or Wikipedia inflict fundamental change? Now imagine life without some earlier breakthroughs: electricity, cars, antibiotics. Life would be radically different. The Internet's virtues are overstated, its vices understated. It's a mixed blessing - and the mix may be moving against us."

- Robert J. Samuelson, in "Beware the Internet and the danger of cyberattacks."
