Internet Quotes A-Z by Author Internet Quotes A-Z by Author

Nowadays, anyone who cannot speak English and is incapable of using the Internet is regarded as backward.

Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Alsaud - Internet - Knowledge

If you look at the top 20 companies of the world, 19 of them are still brick-and-mortar companies. I have nothing against tech companies. What I am saying is that if you have a car manufacturer or an oil and gas manufacturer, you won’t get the supply over the Net.
Anil Ambani - Companies - Internet - Tech


Some say Google is God. Others say Google is Satan. But if they think Google is too powerful, remember that with search engines unlike other companies, all it takes is a single click to go to another search engine.
Sergey Brin - Technology - Internet - Companies

It's important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It's not only life of babies, but it's life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet.
George Bushism - America - Funny - Stupid - Human Rights - Important - Life - Internet

The Internet is based on a layered, end-to-end model that allows people at each level of the network to innovate free of any central control. By placing intelligence at the edges rather than control in the middle of the network, the Internet has created a platform for innovation.
Vinton Cerf - Internet - Innovation


They say a year in the Internet business is like a dog year.. equivalent to seven years in a regular person's life. In other words, it's evolving fast and faster.
Vinton Cerf - Internet - Business
- Innovation

Science fiction does not remain fiction for long. And certainly not on the Internet.
Vinton Cerf - Internet - Growth


The remarkable social impact and economic success of the Internet is in many ways directly attributable to the architectural characteristics that were part of its design. The Internet was designed with no gatekeepers over new content or services.
Vinton Cerf - Internet - Success


In today's knowledge-based economy, what you earn depends on what you learn. Jobs in the information technology sector, for example, pay 85 percent more than the private sector average.

Bill Clinton - Economy - Knowledge - Skill - Learning - Internet


I must confess that I've never trusted the Web. I've always seen it as a coward's tool. Where does it live? How do you hold it personally responsible? Can you put a distributed network of fiber-optic cable "on notice"? And is it male or female? In other words, can I challenge it to a fight?
Stephen Colbert -
Internet - Responsible - Trust - Funny

I think it's a good thing that there are bloggers out there watching very closely and holding people accountable. Everyone in the news should be able to hold up to that kind of scrutiny. I'm for as much transparency in the newsgathering process as possible.
Anderson Cooper - News - Knowledge
- Internet - Truth

There are managers so preoccupied with their e-mail messages that they never look up from their screens to see what's happening in the nondigital world.
Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi - Management
- Internet - Technology

The new information technology, Internet and e-mail, have practically eliminated the physical costs of communications.

Peter Drucker
- Technology - Internet

Thousands of people were producing new Web sites every day. We were just trying to take all that stuff and organize it to make it useful.
David Filo - Internet - Products

We're not in this for the fast money. Really, what we want is to be part of this industry.
David Filo - Commitment - Money - Internet

We started Yahoo in about April 1994. It started out as a way for us to keep track of things that we were interested in.
David Filo - Growth - Internet

First of all we had very few users. We might have had a hundred accesses a day. So there was really no demand from the users to add their own links. Things changed over time though as our access rates doubled every month. Through word of mouth on the Net more and more people began using it.
David Filo - Growth - Marketing - Internet

The Net as a whole is not that reliable, so our blips in service don't cause major problems. However, we are certainly working on improving our own reliability as well as those sites that we depend on.
David Filo - Challenges - Internet - Problems

The most important ways in which I think the Internet will affect the big issue is that it will make it more difficult for government to collect taxes.

Milton Friedman - Economy - Internet - Taxes


In this business, by the time you realize you're in trouble, it's too late to save yourself. Unless you're running scared all the time, you're gone.
Bill Gates - Internet - Business - Change - Scared


Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren't so exciting.
Bill Gates - Internet - Funny - Rich

Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don't think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Business

I think it's fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we've ever created. They're tools of communication, they're tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Products

The Internet will help achieve "friction free capitalism" by putting buyer and seller in direct contact and providing more information to both about each other.
Bill Gates - Internet - Capitalism - Customers

Paper is no longer a big part of my day. I get 90% of my news online, and when I go to a meeting and want to jot things down, I bring my Tablet PC. It's fully synchronized with my office machine so I have all the files I need.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology

I have always loved the competitive forces in this business. You know I certainly have meetings where I spur people on by saying, "Hey, we can do better than this. How come we are not out ahead on that?" Thats what keeps my job one of the most interesting in the world.
Bill Gates - Internet - Innovative - Improvement - Competition - Encouragement

We're responsible for the creation of the PC industry. The whole idea of compatible machines and lots of software.. that's something we brought to computing. And so it's a responsibility for us to make sure that things like security don't get in the way of that dream.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Responsibility - Challenges

Security is, I would say, our top priority because for all the exciting things you will be able to do with computers.. organizing your lives, staying in touch with people, being creative.. if we don't solve these security problems, then people will hold back. Businesses will be afraid to put their critical information on it because it will be exposed.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Problems

We're at the point now where the challenge isn't how to communicate effectively with e-mail, it's ensuring that you spend your time on the e-mail that matters most.
Bill Gates - Internet - Challenges

Having kids has been a fantastic thing for me. It's meant that I'm a little more balanced. In my twenties I worked massively, hardly took vacation at all. Now, I, with the help of my wife, I'm always making sure I've got a good balance of how I spend my time.
Bill Gates - Work - Family - Time


The lnternet is turning economics inside-out. For example, everybody on the internet now wants stuff for free and there are so many free services available.
Uri Geller - Internet
- Economy

I'm a great believer in particularly being alert to changes that change something, anything, by an order of magnitude, and nothing operates with the factors of 10 as profoundly as the Internet.
Andrew Grove - Change - Internet


I have been quoted saying that, in the future, all companies will be Internet companies. I still believe that. More than ever, really
Andrew Grove - Companies - Internet - Business


The Internet doesn't change everything. It doesn't change supply and demand. It doesn't magically allow you to build businesses by turning investors' money into operating expenses indefinitely. The money always runs out eventually.. the Internet doesn't change that, as we have seen.
Andrew Grove - Change - Internet - Investing - Money

I think Amazon is the preeminent pioneer in building a new way of doing commerce: personalized, database-driven commerce, where the big value is not in the purchase fulfillment, but in knowing as much about a customer base of ten or twenty million people as a corner store used to know about a customer base of a few hundred. In today's mass-merchandising world, that's largely gone; Amazon is trying to use computer technology to re-establish it.
Andrew Grove - Technology - Internet - Customers - Mass

The boom was healthy too, even with its excesses. Because what this incredible valuation craze did was draw untold sums of billions of dollars into building the Internet infrastructure. The hundreds of billions of dollars that got invested in telecommunications, for example.
Andrew Grove - Internet - Investing - Money


I think one of the big errors people are making right now is thinking that old-style businesses will be obsolete, when actually they will be an important part of this new civilization. Some retail groups are introducing e-commerce and think that the "bricks" are no longer useful. But they will continue to be important.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Mistakes
- Business - Internet

The key is the Internet. The United States is by far the most advanced country in this new digital culture, so we have to be there. The Internet is the heart of this new civilization, and telecommunications are the nervous system, or circulatory system.
Carlos Slim Helu - Technology - Internet
- Growth - American

I always had faith in the internet. I believed in it and thought it was obviously going to change the way the world worked. I really did not understand why others were selling their stock. As stock prices plunged, I just bought them, one after another, since I had the money. I guess I was rather lucky.
Takafumi Horie - Change - Money - Internet - Stocks

I feel I'm able to serve my customer by knowing what she or he wants. One of the ways I'm able to do this is through my website, and email: people give me great ideas, tell me what they want, what they don't want. It's really instrumental, and helps me stay in touch with people.
Kathy Ireland - Customers - Knowledge - Internet - Ideas - Help

I have an almost religious zeal.. not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me, the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature, linking up.
Dan Millman - Technology - Internet

There is so much media now with the Internet and people, and so easy and so cheap to start a newspaper or start a magazine, there’s just millions of voices and people want to be heard.

Rupert Murdoch - Internet - Technology

All forms of government ultimately are not going to succeed in trying to control or censor the Internet.
Rupert Murdoch - Government - Internet - Fail

The Internet has been the most fundamental change during my lifetime and for hundreds of years. Someone the other day said, "It's the biggest thing since Gutenberg," and then someone else said "No, it's the biggest thing since the invention of writing."
Rupert Murdoch - Change - Internet - Technology

Size and synergies between the different segments of the company matter. As far as we are concerned, the Internet is broadening our opportunity, as well as for other big media companies with huge resources in sports, entertainment and news. There's just more opportunity.
Rupert Murdoch - Media - Internet - Company - Opportunity

I had one simple idea about telling friends about arts and technology events. People in the community suggested everything else to us, and that's our theme. We're really run by the people who use the site. We just run the infrastructure, and help out with problems.
Craig Newmark - Technology - People - Ideas - Friends
- Help - Problems - Internet

My take on the whole dot-com bubble was that a lot of people who wanted to make a lot of money got too excited and hyped up the commercial aspects of the Internet prematurely. I think the vision of the Internet as a democratizing medium.. as everyone's printing press.. is real. We got distracted from that by the mass hallucinations of the bubble.
Craig Newmark - Greed - Internet - Money - Media


We have technology, finally, that for the first time in human history allows people to really maintain rich connections with much larger numbers of people.
Pierre Omidyar - Technology - People - Internet

When I started eBay, it was a hobby, an experiment to see if people could use the Internet to be empowered through access to an efficient market. I actually wasn't thinking about it in terms of a social impact. It was really about helping people connect around a sphere of interest so they could do business.
Pierre Omidyar - People - Internet - Business - Power

I agree completely with my son James when he says 'Internet is like electricity. The latter lights up everything, while the former lights up knowledge'.
Kerry Packer - Internet - Knowledge

As we transition from one screen to multiscreens, Google has enormous opportunities to innovate and drive ever higher monetization. Just like Search in 2000.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Google - Opportunity - Search - Innovation - Gadgets

As devices multiply and usage changes (many users coming online today may never use a desktop machine), it becomes more and more important to ensure that people can access all of their stuff anywhere.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Gadgets - Change - Computers

Most of us carry at least one device, all the time, every day. In fact many of us would feel naked without our smartphone. It’s hardly surprising mobile search queries - and mobile commerce - are growing dramatically across the world.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Search - Gadgets - Growth

We have always tried to concentrate on the long term, and to place bets on technology we believe will have a significant impact over time. It’s hard to imagine now, but when we started Google most people thought search was a solved problem and that there was no money to be made apart from some banner advertising. We felt the exact opposite: that search quality was very poor, and that awesome user experiences would clearly make money.
Larry Page - Google - Internet - Money - Search - Technology - Focus - Advertising

I have always believed that technology should do the hard work - discovery, organization, communication - so users can do what makes them happiest: living and loving, not messing with annoying computers! That means making our products work together seamlessly.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Communication - Computers - Products

We understand the need to balance our short- and longer-term needs because our revenue is the engine that funds all our innovation. But over time, our emerging high-usage products will likely generate significant new revenue streams for Google as well as for our partners, just as search does today.
Larry Page - Search - Internet - Google - Innovation - Revenue - Products

The ultimate search engine would basically understand everything in the world, and it would always give you the right thing. And we're a long, long ways from that.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Intelligent - Google - Search

Basically, our goal is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful.
Larry Page - Internet - Knowledge - Goals - Google

The Star Trek computer doesn't seem that interesting. They ask it random questions, it thinks for a while. I think we can do better than that.
Larry Page - Technology - Internet - Questions
- Computers

I believe that this notion of self-publishing, which is what Blogger and blogging are really about, is the next big wave of human communication. The last big wave was Web activity. Before that one it was e-mail. Instant messaging was an extension of e-mail, real-time e-mail.
Eric Schmidt - Technology
- Internet

I'm able to bring business expertise but, more importantly, operating experience. The people here at Google are young. Every day there are lots of new challenges. I keep things focused. The speech I give everyday is: "This is what we do. Is what you are doing consistent with that, and does it change the world?"
Eric Schmidt - Internet - Management - Change - Focus

It's a mistake to predict the size of markets that are so new. This model has shown no signs of slowing down. So we are going to get as much of it as we possibly can, and when we get close to that we'll figure out other problems.
Eric Schmidt - Internet - Growth

Search companies, which I won't mention by name, tried to do so many things at the same time, they forgot all about search. They either missed the next revolution of search or they created an opening for a Google to enter.
Eric Schmidt - Companies - Internet - Focus


The Internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom.
Jon Stewart - Internet


eBay had two main things that really spoke to me. It enabled individuals to do things that they could not have done without the Web. The second thing was what Pierre said: "People have met their best friends on eBay. What this has enabled is truly online community."
Meg Whitman - Ebay -
Internet - Community - Friends

I think there's confusion around what the point of social networks is. A lot of different companies characterized as social networks have different goals - some serve the function of business networking, some are media portals. What we're trying to do is just make it really efficient for people to communicate, get information and share information

Mark Zuckerberg - Sharing - Facebook - Social Network - Media - Communicate - Internet
