IT & The Internet

"Information networks straddle the world. Nothing remains concealed. But the sheer volume of Information dissolves the Information. We are unable to take it all in." Gunther Grass

“The new information technology... Internet and e-mail... have practically eliminated the physical costs of communications.” Peter Drucker

“The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.” Steve Ballmer

“The most important thing that was new [with the internet] was the idea of URI or URL, that any piece of information anywhere should have an identifier, which will allow you to get hold of it.” Tim Berners-Lee

"With so much Information now online, it is exceptionally easy to simply dive in and drown." Alfred Glossbrenner

“Information on the Internet is subject to the same rules and regulations as conversation at a bar.” Dr. George Lundberg

“I think that the Internet - and I do love the free flow of ideas on the 'Net - is like the wild west of the information world.” Vince McMahon
