"If mass communications blend together harmoniously, and often unnoticeably, art, politics, religion, and philosophy with commercials, they bring these realms of culture to their common denominator - the commodity form.

In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value." - Lou Gerstner

"We have become so quick and effective in building things today. It would be easy to build another Pyramid of Giza or another Great Wall.

Sharing is built into the culture and practices of the Web and has made it difficult for the subscription model to be effective." - Robert Waterman McChesney

"Man is more than his environment. It is from the innate quality of the Spirit in him, his inner storehouse, that he draws those ideas, his intuitions, which unify his perceptions of the external world instantaneously with a value which is qualitative and not quantitative, and which he embodies in the works of his culture - those achievements which belong not only to one particular time but to all times, and mark the path of his upward progress." - Nilakanta Sri Ram

"Nietzsche is absolutely correct, even more correct today than when he wrote it in Thus Spake Zarathustra: I looked all about me for human beings but all I saw were fragments, deformed creatures with too much eye or too much ear.
