A computer terminal is not some clunky old television with a typewriter in front of it. It is an interface where the mind and body can connect with the universe and move bits of it about.

in my green metal suit i’m preparing to shoot up the city
and the ring at the end of my nose makes me look rather pretty
it’s a pity there’s nobody here to witness the end
save for my dear old friend and confidante madmoiselle kitty
~you know, what’s his name

… sometimes it’s just been too long since you’ve heard a song.

‘You’d better be prepared for the jump into hyperspace. It’s unpleasently like being drunk.’
‘What’s so unpleasent about being drunk?’
‘You ask a glass of water.’

“I really didn’t foresee the Internet. But then, neither did the computer industry. Not that that tells us very much, of course – the computer industry didn’t even foresee that the century was going to end.”
~douglas noel adams

… my quotation collection amuses me.
