“So computer companies, listening to their existing customers, didn’t”
Kevin Maney, Making the World Work Better: The Ideas That Shaped a Century and a Company

“...A well-written, well-organized book packages the author's brain. It is the purest, richest, most complete way to take what's inside one person's brain and move it into another person's brain...As long as society finds it valuable to consume the stories, research, and thoughts of its intellectual leaders, the basic idea of the book should endure. Paper books will get pressured by electronic versions over time, but the art form should remain vital.”
Kevin Maney, Trade-Off: Why Some Things Catch On, and Others Don't

“The human brain has a mechanism for dealing with data overload. It forgets. If indeed we’re on a path to building machines that think like us, how ironic if the next great invention in computer memory turns out to be forgetting.”
Kevin Maney, Making the World Work Better: The Ideas That Shaped a Century and a Company
