Best Quotes about Computers

1.
Control over computing belongs with users.
Allen, Brandt

2.
One would think that if you're anonymous, you'd do anything you want, but groups have their own sense of community and what we can do.
John Allen

3.
Computers WORK, people THINK.
IBM Corporation Old Adage

4.
It is hardly surprising that children should enthusiastically start their education at an early age with the Absolute Knowledge of computer science; while they are unable to read, for reading demands making judgments at every line. Conversation is almost dead, and soon so too will be those who knew how to speak.
Debord, Guy

5.
Silicon Valley is like a person running around in front of a steamroller. You can outrun the steamroller on any given day. But if you ever sit down you get squashed.
Boschert, Bob

6.
I see no reason why anyone would want a computer in their home.
Olsen, Kenneth

7.
There will still be things that machines cannot do. They will not produce great art or great literature or great philosophy; they will not be able to discover the secret springs of happiness in the human heart; they will know nothing of love and friendship.
Russell, Bertrand

8.
Computers in the future will weigh no more than 1.5 tons. [Quoted in Popular Mechanics 1950]

9.
A distributed system is one in which the failure of a computer you didn't even know existed can render your own computer unusable.
Lamport, Leslie

10.
One of the most feared expressions in modern times is The computer is down
Augustine, Norman

11.
I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.
Isaac Asimov

12.
To err is human--and to blame it on a computer is even more so.
Robert Orben

13.
Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
James Magary

14.
The computing field is always in need of new cliches.
Alan Perlis

15.
A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history -- with the possible exceptions of hand guns and tequila.
Ratliffe, Mitch

16.
The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts agree, is by accident. That's where we come in; we're computer professionals. We cause accidents.
Nathaniel Borenstein

17.
Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes.
E. W. Dijkstra

18.
The sad thing about artificial intelligence is that it lacks artifice and therefore intelligence.
Baudrillard, Jean

19.
One of the best things to come out of the home computer revolution could be the general and widespread understanding of how severely limited logic really is.
Herbert, Frank

20.
If you put tomfoolery into a computer, nothing comes out of it but tomfoolery. But this tomfoolery, having passed through a very expensive machine, is somehow ennobled and no-one dares criticize it.
Pierre Gallois

21.
Computer science only indicates the retrospective omnipotence of our technologies. In other words, an infinite capacity to process data (but only data -- i.e. the already given) and in no sense a new vision. With that science, we are entering an era of exhaustivity, which is also an era of exhaustion.
Baudrillard, Jean

22.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
Rick Cook

23.
To err is human, but to really foul things up requires a computer. Those who are serious in ridiculous matters will be ridiculous in serious matters.
Farmers Almanac

24.
Man is a slow, sloppy and brilliant thinker; the machine is fast, accurate and stupid.
Kelly, William M.

25.
Where a calculator on the ENIAC is equipped with 18,000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons, computers in the future may have only 1,000 vaccuum tubes and perhaps weigh 1.5 tons.

26.
Man is still the most extraordinary computer of all.
Kennedy, John F.

27.
In all large corporations, there is a pervasive fear that someone, somewhere is having fun with a computer on company time. Networks help alleviate that fear.
John C. Dvorak

28.
The computer is a moron.
Peter Drucker

29.
Not even computers will replace committees, because committees buy computers.
Edward Shepherd Mead

30.
If builders built buildings the way programmers wrote programs, then the first woodpecker that came along would destroy civilization.
Weinberger, Harry

31.
I really don't care that I don't have what's current because whatever is at the moment, it will be infinitely better in a few months and even better months later.
Fink, William

32.
If computers get too powerful, we can organize them into a committee -- that will do them in.
Bradley's Bromide

33.
If you don't know how to do something, you don't know how to do it with a computer.

34.
The real danger is not that computers will begin to think like men, but that men will begin to think like computers.
Harris, Sidney J.

35.
The great thing about a computer notebook is that no matter how much you stuff into it, it doesn't get bigger or heavier.
Bill Gates

I have always wished for a computer that would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish came true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.

The workers and professionals of the world will soon be divided into two distinct groups.Those who will control computers and those who will be controlled by computers.It would be best for you to be in the former group.
Eigen, Lewis D.

46.
Electronic aids, particularly domestic computers, will help the inner migration, the opting out of reality. Reality is no longer going to be the stuff out there, but the stuff inside your head. It's going to be commercial and nasty at the same time.
Ballard, J. G.

47.
I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
Stephen Hawking

48.
There is never finality in the display terminal's screen, but an irresponsible whimsicality, as words, sentences, and paragraphs are negated at the touch of a key. The significance of the past, as expressed in the manuscript by a deleted word or an inserted correction, is annulled in idle gusts of electronic massacre.
Cockburn, Alexander

The word user is the word used by the computer professional when they mean idiot.
Barry, Dave
