99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

In my early work, my time in the batting cage, that's serious, and that's when I feel like I'm really working.

You're supposed to have fun when you play games. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I interned at Miramax and subsequently at Paramount because I was really curious about the future of entertainment - how were we going to get films online?

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

It's not accidental that products get worse over time; it's because companies stop paying attention to them.

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The pace of innovation may slow down or speed up depending on the appetite in the public markets, but the constant progress of technology doesn't really ever stop.

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I've always been interested in technology, but specifically how we can use machines to engage the imagination. I started using computers when I was young and was fascinated by creating rules and instructions that allow a computer to engage in a dialogue with humans. The stories found in the data all around us can do just that. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

As technology evolves, it manipulates our culture, and there's a huge opportunity to push ourselves further. I think it actually makes ourselves maybe more human, or at least human in a different way, that we can connect together in amazingly different ways and powerful new ways. open_in_new

I've always been a bit of a mix between art and technology. I used to paint a lot, but I'm not very good with my hands. It has always been a fusion between my computer gaming interests and being exposed to the rich data of society that we live in. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

My mom's a psychologist, and I think that has influenced me on a personal level. Plus, I'm just generally interested in visualization and humanity, social activity and technology, and what happens in aggregate. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Marcus Samuelsson is a chef who inspires me everyday. He has such a deep understanding of flavors and techniques. His food is representative of the diverse world that we live in.

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Dynamic pricing - charging more when goods and services are in high demand and short supply and less when the opposite is true - isn't new. Gasoline retailers, hoteliers, and airlines have been deploying the technique for years. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Amazon has suffered quarters-long profit droughts. Alphabet has given its investors agita over profligate spending on non-core products. Microsoft's growth - if not its profit engine - stalled for years, causing its stock to idle, too. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I was actually pretty shy in school. My defense mechanism was to be the class clown. I remember getting into a lot of trouble for being disruptive, and I was brought in front of the headteacher, who said: 'What's going to happen to you; what are you going to do when you grow up?' and I said: 'Well, I'm obviously going to be a comedian.' open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I think as more people use the phones to access the Internet, they have a lot less patience for trying to find things on the search engines. That is because you need to figure a lot of things out for search to work. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The Analytical Engine has no pretensions whatever to originate anything. It can do whatever we know how to order it to perform... But it is likely to exert an indirect and reciprocal influence on science itself. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

As soon as I have got flying to perfection, I have got a scheme about a steam engine. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I have got a scheme to make a thing in the form of a horse with a steam engine in the inside so contrived as to move an immense pair of wings, fixed on the outside of the horse, in such a manner as to carry it up into the air while a person sits on its back. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The ideas which led to the Analytical Engine occurred in a manner wholly independent of any that were connected with the Difference Engine. These ideas are indeed, in their own intrinsic nature, independent of the latter engine and might equally have occurred had it never existed nor even been thought of at all. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Those who incline to very strictly utilitarian views may perhaps feel that the peculiar powers of the Analytical Engine bear upon questions of abstract and speculative science rather than upon those involving everyday and ordinary human interests. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

We may say most aptly that the Analytical Engine weaves algebraical patterns just as the Jacquard loom weaves flowers and leaves. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

In the case of the Analytical Engine, we have undoubtedly to lay out a certain capital of analytical labour in one particular line, but this is in order that the engine may bring us in a much larger return in another line. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The Analytical Engine does not occupy common ground with mere 'calculating machines.' It holds a position wholly its own, and the considerations it suggests are more interesting in their nature. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

My sense is that the wonderful technology that we have to visualize the inside of the body often leaves physicians feeling that the exam is a waste of time and so they may shortchange the ritual. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Plays are the marathon of scriptwriting. You fix on a point somewhere in the middle distance, and you start running, and you don't stop until you get to the end. The theory is that you have something you cannot not say: this is the engine that propels you through to the last page. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I don't understand technology, and I'm very scared of it. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

If we are going to have self-driving cars, the technical specifications should be quite precise. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Color always vexed me because I would fight with the media I was using. I love coloring in Photoshop, and it's freed me to pursue ideas and techniques I wouldn't have otherwise attempted. Since I get to take an assignment from concept to final execution, I have more freedom in my idea-making processes. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Each major wave of technology innovation has given rise to one or more super-unicorns - companies that could change your life to work at or invest in if you're not lucky/genius enough to be a co-founder. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Over the long term, there will be many more billion-dollar technology companies than there are today. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

I think the rest of the world has a very wide, very slow kick. It's very simple, breaststroke. People think it's highly technical. But the more narrow, more effective and quicker you can execute it, the faster you are going to go. There's less drag, basically. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

In theory, cars are fairly simple. If they don't start, it's either the fuel system or the electrical system. Teach yourself about the path of each in your engine and tracing it is fairly straightforward. But at the beginning, mastering each new system seems like an unreachable shore. The car is effectively a black box. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

The Internet is probably the most important technological advancement of my lifetime. Its strength lies in its open architecture and its ability to allow a framework where all voices can be heard. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Technology is usually there to let some process go on hidden in the background. For us on 'MythBusters,' we're always trying to make the process apparent. So, we have learned to try and never rely on a technological solution when an analogue one is in front of us. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me

Bravery is the engine of change. open_in_new

99quotes.me 99quotes.me 99quotes.me
