Neither listening nor speaking the truth openly take the people aback so much these days as it used to do a few years back, thanks to the internet age that has bridged knowledge gap.
We no longer need physically be
Among friends or loved ones for a cup of tea;
Nor at the market place for a shopping spree,
Nor yet at a clinic for an ECG!
All human interactions, sex included,
Can now on nets and webs be concluded.
Thus I am afraid, for most people await
A virtual life and a virtual fate!
– Boghos L. Artinian

Google: I have everything. !!
Facebook: I know everyone. !
Tweeter: I know what you guys think!!
Internet: Gosh!!!w/out me. !!you guys are nothing!!!
Can we go back to using Facebook for what it was originally for – looking up exes to see how fat they got?
– Bill Maher
The Internet revolution is going to be like all the other revolutions we have seen in history. It’s going to be over before a lot of us even know it started.

– Umberto Eco
Difference between TV and the internet was how far you sat from the screen. TV was an 8 foot activity, and you were a consumer. The internet was a 16 inch activity, and you participated. I think the sitting down thing is similar. You’re not going to buy an armoir while standing on the subway.
– Seth Godin
Sooner or later the Internet will become profitable. It’s an old story played before by canals, railroads and automobiles.
– Paul A. Samuelson
The internet means that you don’t have to convince anyone else that something is a good idea before trying it.
