“It is the nature of physics to hear the loudest of mouths over the most comprehensive ones.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“The young are often savvy in the cultural world but not so much the intellectual; the old the intellectual but not so much the cultural. But I tell you those who do the most damage during an era are very much aware of both.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Lionel Shriver
“If Edgar sounded overeager, even rushed, the race was with his own temperament. He placed a premium on savvy. Yet since you could only obtain new information by admitting you didn’t know it already, savvy required an apprenticeship as a naive twit. You had to ask crude, obvious questions…you had to sit still while worldly-wise warhorses…fired withering glances as if you were born yesterday.

Well, Edgar was born yesterday for the moment, although his tolerance for being treated liked a simpleton was in short supply. He’d needed to rattle off a multitude of stupid questions before he embraced his next incarnation as an insider. The trouble was that savvy coated your brain in plastic like a driver’s license: nothing more could get in. Hence the point at which you decided you knew everything was exactly the point at which you became an ignorant dipshit.”
Lionel Shriver, The New Republic

Ripley Patton
“I Sat back in the chair, surveying the view in front of me like some savvy superhero, safe in her secret lair.
& that's when I saw it; a shadow slipping across the lower corner of camera seventeen.”
Ripley Patton, Ghost Hold

Sarah Addison Allen
“She wrote the names of the day's cakes on the board: traditional Southern red velvet cake and peach pound cake, but also green tea and honey macaroons and cranberry doughnuts. She knew the more unusual things would sell out first. It had taken nearly a year, but she'd won over her regulars with her skill with what they already knew, so now they would try anything she made.”
Sarah Addison Allen, The Girl Who Chased the Moon

“An excerpt from:

“Hypothetically Speaking”

Anthony T. Hincks
(A book about you and the world – coming soon!)

If I was a savvy person, I would watch, and study mankind in order to find out where his weaknesses lay.

Greed, for sure; vanity; mistrust; a tendency towards violence; fanaticism, and many other less than honorable traits and even some honorable ones which could also be used, and capitalized on.

Then, once I had found his weaknesses I would act.
I and some friends or family, not terms that I would usually use but ones that are more commonly used here on Earth, would start an empire.

Months – Years - Millennium

Who cares, for time is on my side, not yours!
I would sow mistrust; magic; wisdom; knowledge, and start many religions.

Why many religions?

Because where would the fun be by just having one, when with a whole handful you can sow hatred; do unspeakable acts all in the name of religion. That’s a lot more fun, and, besides which, it suits my purposes.

Innovation – Invention – Intelligence

All of those things would come, but only at a time of my choosing.

Decades would pass and then centuries. Wars would be fought. He against him. He against her. She against him. They against others.

I tell you, watching something come to fruition is a hell of a lot of fun.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Being 'Tech Savvy' allows me to tie my own shoe laces, ride a tricycle, draw stick figures, play hop scotch and much, much more.
Otherwise I'd be a 'Techno Illiterate'.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“I wish that I was 'tech savvy', but unfortunately for me and my family, I'm 'tech illiterate'.”
Anthony T. Hincks
