Quote 8 - 9 - 12

We will create a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace. May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments have made before.

John Perry Barlow

We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology.

Carl Sagan

We are the children of a technological age. We have found streamlined ways of doing much of our routine work. Printing is no longer the only way of reproducing books. Reading them, however, has not changed.

The up-side of technology, sometimes I forget about that part - though I still like to read printed books

Barlow's quote has been wishful thinking. Cyberspace has become more virulent then real space.
I like real books also better but what would the Garden Party be without computers and the internet? A Round Robin letter? We would never have met.
Sagan, as always, has it right.
