I tuned in Charlie Rose on one of my local PBS stations last night, and there sat Esther Dyson. "This should be interesting," I thought--and it was, save for Charlie tromping on her statements now and then. He would ask a question, and as Esther began answering interrupt her to "clarify" the question--which didn't need clarification. Anyway, the quotes:
(Anent social networking) "People now want to spread their presence around the world. "
"If Google was self-aware what would it say?"
"There’s diabetes, which is too much sugar. Then there’s information diabetes, which is too much pablum."
