Quote of the Day

(I collected these for use on a different webpage but the focus of that project changed, so I have to post them here or some of them might never see the light of day.)

Spoke to a professor of cultural stuff last weekend—in one of his books he has stated that the book is probably one of the greatest forms of technology ever invented—it is cheap, portable, easily accessible and browseable, can be chucked at the cat—or the radio when G. W. Bush comes on, can be taken to the bath without risking electrocution etc—and that its days are far from numbered, in his estimation. I left his house a more optimistic man than when I entered it.
