Douglas Adams
“Lovers of print are simply confusing the plate for the food.”
Douglas Adams

Charlie Brooker
“Until recently, I was an ebook sceptic, see; one of those people who harrumphs about the “physical pleasure of turning actual pages” and how ebook will “never replace the real thing”. Then I was given a Kindle as a present. That shut me up. Stock complaints about the inherent pleasure of ye olde format are bandied about whenever some new upstart invention comes along. Each moan is nothing more than a little foetus of nostalgia jerking in your gut. First they said CDs were no match for vinyl. Then they said MP3s were no match for CDs. Now they say streaming music services are no match for MP3s. They’re only happy looking in the rear-view mirror.”
Charlie Brooker

Amelia Gray
“Tess realized one of the great modern dating sadnesses: everyone is so used to the comforting glow of the computer screen that no one can go so far as to say "good morning" in public without being liquored up.”
Amelia Gray, AM/PM

Roman Payne
“Apollinaire said a poet should be 'of his time.' I say objects of the Digital Age belong in newspapers, not literature. When I read a novel, I don’t want credit cards; I want cash in ducats and gold doubloons.”
Roman Payne

Matt Haig
“Places don't matter to people any more. Places aren't the point. People are only ever half present where they are these days. They always have at least one foot in the great digital nowhere.”
Matt Haig, How to Stop Time

“A fundamental approach to life transformation is using social media for therapy; it forces you to have an opinion, provides intellectual stimulation, increases awareness, boosts self-confidence, and offers the possibility of hope.”

“Critical Thinking brings insight into the situation.”
Pearl Zhu, 100 Digital Rules

L.M. Browning
“The pace of this modern age is not conducive to maintaining one’s consciousness. Glued to our electronics, we are blind and deaf to the world around us. Run down by our long work days, we are too exhausted to think and too hurried to feel. The day ends in a haze of strained thoughts, numbness, and fatigue. And we rise the next morning only to start the cycle again.
In this age of distraction, if you desire to fritter away your life with empty diversions, there is an abundance of gadgets available to aid you. Quietness is a characteristic of ages gone by. Our generation is the one it died with. Connected to the virtual world, we ignore the presence of those in our home. One can only hope we will awaken to the need for balance before we look up from the screen to find our loved ones have gone, and our life has passed us by.”
L.M. Browning

Shannon  Mullen
“Perhaps love in the digital age is more like Netflix binge-watching: we enjoy bursts of fantasy, and then move on to something else when it’s done. Like browsing for a new series on Netflix, if the relationship doesn’t fit perfectly, you can trade it in for something new with the click of a button or a swipe on your phone.”
Shannon Mullen, See What Flowers

“In this digital age, we're experiencing the weaponization of everything.”
James Scott, Senior Fellow, Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology

Catherine Lacey
“The late-afternoon light was thick and orange and she passed four different couples taking photos of themselves on the same cobblestoned block, all their loves endlessly recorded and reviewed, ever and ever, a little archive of two.”
Catherine Lacey, The Answers

Pearl Zhu
“Trust is a collective mind - the corporate culture. You can’t build and nourish trust without creating a conducive environment of trust.”
Pearl Zhu, Digital Gaps: Bridging Multiple Gaps to Run Cohesive Digital Business

“The Untethered Society represents a new set of technologies and behaviors coming together to create a new social DNA—and with it, a new set of social problems and challenges to businesses and other institutions.”
Julie Albright

“For digital natives, ubiquitous connectivity means untethering from traditional expectations about work and career: Why be in an office when you can work from Starbucks on your laptop? Why even come in at all?”
Julie Albright

Jeff Jarvis
“What’s insidious about the fear of what others will say is that you rarely hear them say it. You imagine what they’d say. You imagine they care that much about you. The fragility of our own egos gets the better of us”
Jeff Jarvis, Public Parts: How Sharing in the Digital Age is Revolutionizing Life, Business, and Society

Kate   O'Neill

Pearl Zhu
“Change can flow on the surface whereas digital transformation needs to permeate into business vision, strategy, culture, communication, and process.”
Pearl Zhu, Digital Maturity: Take a Journey of a Thousand Miles from Functioning to Delight

“Social media has liberated people in such a way that many now consider themselves as promoters, advertisers and publicity specialists, this in addition to their "normal" job.”
Germany Kent

“In this day and age, the digital age, you can forget about a resume; you are what your social media says about you.”
Germany Kent

“Sadly, people are still losing their jobs over things that they tweet. Nowadays, that has extended to other people losing their jobs over something someone else tweeted who was somehow largely affiliated with them.”
Germany Kent

Matt Haig
“After reading the news, I go on Twitter. I don't have an account but I find it interesting - all the different voices, the squabbles, the arrogance of certainty, the ignorance, the occasional, but wonderful, compassion, and watching the evolution of language head towards a new kind of hieroglyphics.”
Matt Haig, How to Stop Time
