E.B. White
“You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.”
E. B. White, Charlotte's Web

Deepak Chopra
“Each of us is a unique strand in the intricate web of life and here to make a contribution.”
Deepak Chopra

Jennifer Egan
“Rebecca was an academic star. Her new book was on the phenomenon of word casings, a term she'd invented for words that no longer had meaning outside quotation marks. English was full of these empty words--"friend" and "real" and "story" and "change"--words that had been shucked of their meanings and reduced to husks. Some, like "identity" and "search" and "cloud," had clearly been drained of life by their Web usage. With others, the reasons were more complex; how had "American" become an ironic term? How had "democracy" come to be used in an arch, mocking way?”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

E.B. White
“Too many things on my mind, said Wilbur.
Well, said the goose, that's not my trouble. I have nothing at all on my mind, but I've too many things under my behind.”
E. B. White, Charlotte's Web

China Miéville
“Its substance was known to me. The crawling infinity of colours, the chaos of textures that went into each strand of that eternally complex tapestry…each one resonated under the step of the dancing mad god, vibrating and sending little echoes of bravery, or hunger, or architecture, or argument, or cabbage or murder or concrete across the aether. The weft of starlings’ motivations connected to the thick, sticky strand of a young thief’s laugh. The fibres stretched taut and glued themselves solidly to a third line, its silk made from the angles of seven flying buttresses to a cathedral roof. The plait disappeared into the enormity of possible spaces.

Every intention, interaction, motivation, every colour, every body, every action and reaction, every piece of physical reality and the thoughts that it engendered, every connection made, every nuanced moment of history and potentiality, every toothache and flagstone, every emotion and birth and banknote, every possible thing ever is woven into that limitless, sprawling web.

It is without beginning or end. It is complex to a degree that humbles the mind. It is a work of such beauty that my soul wept...

..I have danced with the spider. I have cut a caper with the dancing mad god.”
China Miéville, Perdido Street Station

Jaron Lanier
“Something like missionary reductionism has happened to the internet with the rise of web 2.0. The strangeness is being leached away by the mush-making process. Individual web pages as they first appeared in the early 1990S had the flavor of personhood. MySpace preserved some of that flavor, though a process of regularized formatting had begun. Facebook went further, organizing people into multiple-choice identities, while Wikipedia seeks to erase point of view entirely.

If a church or government were doing these things, it would feel authoritarian, but when technologists are the culprits, we seem hip, fresh, and inventive. People will accept ideas presented in technological form that would be abhorrent in any other form. It is utterly strange to hear my many old friends in the world of digital culture claim to be the true sons of the Renaissance without realizing that using computers to reduce individual expression is a primitive, retrograde activity, no matter how sophisticated your tools are.”
Jaron Lanier, You Are Not a Gadget

Dannika Dark
“I clung to each word that fell from his lips like a spider to a web.”
Dannika Dark, Twist

Jennifer Estep
“I’m going to untangle her deadly scheme, even if it leaves my love affair hanging by a thread.”
Jennifer Estep, Widow's Web

John Fowles
“People won't admit it, they're too busy grabbing to see that the lights have fused. They can't see the darkness and the spider-face beyond and the great web of it all. That there's always this if you scratch at the surface of happiness and goodness.
The black and the black and the black.”
John Fowles, The Collector

Lois Farfel Stark
“Living in new shapes, reshapes our thinking”
Lois Farfel Stark, The Telling Image: Shapes of Changing Times

Jaron Lanier
“A fashionable idea in technical circles is that quantity not only turns into quality at some extreme of scale, but also does so according to principles we already understand. Some of my colleagues think a million, or perhaps a billion, fragmentary insults will eventually yield wisdom that surpasses that of any well-thought-out essay, so long as sophisticated secret statistical algorithms recombine the fragments. I disagree. A trope from the early days of computer science comes to mind: garbage in, garbage out.”
Jaron Lanier, You Are Not a Gadget

Edward R. Tufte
“We shouldn’t abbreviate the truth but rather get a new method of presentation.”
Edward Tufte

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“The first golden rays of morning’s light softly backlit the whole of this most intricate web, leaving morning’s dew generously sprinkling a thousand glistening points of light on each tender strand. But because it crossed the broad garden path, those ‘in a hurry’ saw it as an obstacle to where they were going, while those ‘on a journey’ saw it as a privilege that enhanced where they were going.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Your website is the center of your digital eco-system, like a brick and mortar location, the experience matters once a customer enters, just as much as the perception they have of you before they walk through the door.”
Leland Dieno, Face The Book With Your Small Business: A step by step guide to establishing your small business on the biggest social media network in existance..

“Meestal zijn er grote delen van de pagina die niet eens bekeken worden door de bezoeker! Hij keurt ze letterlijk geen blik waardig.”
Peter Kassenaar, Handboek Website Usability

“Het grote voordeel van het web is tegelijkertijd ook het nadeel. Zeer veel informatie is snel beschikbaar voor velen, maar de voorwaarde voor het gebruik is dat de geboden informatie toegankelijk en overzichtelijk geschreven wordt.”
Peter Kassenaar, Handboek Website Usability

Tamara Kučan
“Kompjutersko doba i internet omogućili su ti da brzo i lako dođeš do informacija, ne i do znanja. Nisu sve informacije istine, ali svaka istina treba da postane informacija. Internet ti pomaže da glasno izgovoriš istinu, ali i da izmisliš laži u koje želiš da veruješ. Internet je dobra škola za radoznalog đaka. Internet je ludnica sa neograničenim brojem mesta za dijagnoze za koje nisi ni slutio da postoje. Na internetu možeš biti bilo ko, bilo kada i bilo gde. Na internetu se ostavruju snovi. Internet... Pomoći će ti da prespavaš život, verujući da si budan.
Nisi. Nažalost, nisi.”
Tamara Kučan, Profajler

“Ratovi ovog vremena ne zahtevaju izlazak na bojno polje. Ratovati se može bilo gde. Bilo kada. Sa bilo kim. Dovoljan je samo jedan link. Poljane pune leševa zamenile su platoforme na kojima se, umesto krvi, prolivaju tajne i ideje – duša čoveka i novac – krvotok mnogih ljudi. Domeni su postali nove teritorije. Plan rata je zamenjen precizno napisanim kodom. Obuka koju ratnici prolaze ne zahteva fizičku izdržljivost, već fokusiranost ratnika na tren koji može obrnuti planetu. Pobede, umesto jačima, pripadaju pametnijima. Iako bi neko pomislio da su ovakvi ratovi smešni jer ratnici ne gube živote niti krvare, ta pomisao jedna je od najvećih zabluda današnjice. Nož, sablja, top ili tenk... Nikada nisu razmišljali. Ratniku su pružali nadgradnju fizičke snage. Današnje oružje misli na identičan način kao ljudski mozak, ali se razvija znatno brže. Računar pamti čak i ono što čovek uspe da zaboravi. Ipak, ma kada bili i ma koliko različičiti bili... Rat je rat! Nikada nož nije ubijao. Ubijao je onaj koji drži nož. Ni kompjuter ne ubija. Ubija onaj koji sedi ispred njega.”
Tamara Kučan, Profajler

“Sometimes strands spend a long time seeking each other, fumbling without light, and interweave without knowing that it is exactly what the web wants.”
Emmi Itäranta, Kudottujen kujien kaupunki

“Life is a web that you weave.”
Irfa Rahat

“The internet has enabled research that was previously done over the lifetime of a large group of researchers to be done in just a few years by a single person.”
Steven Magee

Ankush Agarwal
“Once upon a morning walk
somewhere between happy and upset
few thoughts flew in gently buzzing
and got caught, on this net.

कुछ उलझनों की परछाइयाँ थीं
चंद मुस्कुराहटों के उजालों में
सोये ख़्वाब आकर तब अटक गए
उन सूनी आँखों के जालों में”
Ankush Agarwal

“‪Your legs spin luminous webs that I still get stuck in every single time.‬”

“Narcissists, however, are similar to a spider that has built a web for its prey to bring itself.”
Mwanandeke Kindembo, Treatise Upon The Misconceptions of Narcissism

Misha Glenny
“Many of the criminal skills on the Web have emerged from an essential division in the philosophical debate generated by the Internet.

In simple terms the debate is between those, on the one hand, who believe its commercial role is paramount and those, on the other, who argue that it is in the first instance a social and intellectual tool, whose very nature changes the fundamental moral code of mass communication. For the former, any copying of computer ‘code’ (shorthand for the computer language in which software or a program is written) that is not explicitly sanctioned is regarded as a criminal violation. The latter, however, are convinced that by releasing software you are also relinquishing copyright.”
Misha Glenny, DarkMarket: Cyberthieves, Cybercops and You

“It is not called 'The Web' for any small reason. It was declared to you right at the start that this is going to be a web.”
Vineet Raj Kapoor

Richard Powers
“Soon enough, his learners will see across the planet. They'll watch the vast boreal forest from space and read the species-teeming tropics from eye level. They'll study rivers and measure what's in them. They'll collate the data of every wild creature ever tagged and map their wanderings. They'll read every sentence in every article that every field scientist ever published. They'll binge-watch every landscape that anyone has pointed a camera at. They'll listen to all the sounds of the streaming Earth. They'll do what the genes of their ancestors shaped them to do, what all their forebears have ever done themselves. They'll speculate on what it takes to live and put those speculations to the test. Then they'll say what life wants from people, and how it might use them.”
Richard Powers, The Overstory

Marc-Uwe Kling
“Weißt du eigentlich, warum man es >das Netz< nennt?" - “Weil wir darin gefangen sind.”
Marc-Uwe Kling, QualityLand

“Moonless Night

Existence is lost in bottomless waters and has been held captive by sticky webs of darkness. Oceans are formed by waterfalls of shedded tears, while inhabiting eerie musings for arriving at the shore of wisdom. When life submerges in the tidal wave of passion, then the moon will enlighten the night by reflecting on hidden pearls.”
