“A library doesn't need windows. A library is a window.”
Stewart Brand, How Buildings Learn: What Happens After They're Built

“Science is the only news. When you scan a news portal or magazine, all the human interest stuff is the same old he-said-she-said, the politics and economics the same cyclical dramas, the fashions a pathetic illusion of newness; even the technology is predictable if you know the science behind it.

Stewart Brand

“Information wants to be free.”
