Where I grew up, we had the three TV networks, maybe two radio stations, no cable TV. We still had a long-distance party line in our neighborhood, so you could listen to all your neighbors' phone calls. We had a very small public library, and the nearest bookstore was an hour away. -Marc Andreessen

I'm looking for a deal from one of you TV networks to give Snoop Dogg his own hood TV show where I can find America's hottest hood artists. -Snoop Dogg

I've been exploring different options for when I'm done skiing. I have the Turtle Ridge Foundation, which is helping a bunch of worthy causes around the Northeast. I've also started SkiSpace, which is an online social network that basically deals with all things based around any snow sport. -Bode Miller

For me, I'm happy to succeed on any network. -David E. Kelley

The thing that sustains a strong Fox network is the thing that undermines a strong Republican party. -David Frum

We make programming decisions on a day-to-day basis. We sell advertising on a day-to-day basis. This is the way networks operate. This is the way all television stations operate. This is the way most businesses operate when you have a number of affiliates or a number of franchises. It's the way the business operates. -Mark E. Hyman

I was never a big networker, but I was a spin doctor, all those shock shows, that's how I got my first backers. But fashion's a scary industry to be in, especially if you've not grown up with it. -Alexander McQueen

I mean, I've always said I have an amazing team and network of friends and people that I work with that, you know, inspire me and enable me to do what I do. -Alexander Wang

When you're shooting a network television show it inevitably starts airing a few episodes in, and depending on the ratings and the response from the public, you find yourself tweaking your performance or the scripts go in a different direction. -Lizzy Caplan

You look at the pillars of the state: politics, the media, police, lawyers – they've all got their formal role, and then nestling above that is that power elite who are networked in through soft, social links, that are actually running the show. Why didn't I know that 10 years ago, and why didn't I rail against it? Why did I become part of it? -Tom A. Watson

It's incredibly hard to program a network from scratch for 24 hours. -Carson Kressley

Games have grown and developed from this limited in-the-box experience to something that's everywhere now. Interactive content is all around us, networked, ready. This is something I've been hoping for throughout my career. -Shigeru Miyamoto

One of the issues of social networking silos is that they have the data and I don't. -Tim Berners-Lee

CNBC is a very serious-minded financial news network, and what we've seen thus far from Fox appears to be not as investment-focused or financially focused, and that's good for us. -Jeff Zucker

Generally, social networking sites can be hugely promising and beneficial in opening new friendships and vistas and knowledge of the world, but they are also fraught with peril, when young people are reckless or headless. -Richard Blumenthal

Social networking helps reach people easier and quicker. -Bill Cosby

The major networks, the cable networks, they're being prosecutors. They're judges and jurors and executioners. Well, c'mon, that's ridiculous. But they're doing it. -Ray Bradbury

I think the brain is essentially a computer and consciousness is like a computer program. It will cease to run when the computer is turned off. Theoretically, it could be re-created on a neural network, but that would be very difficult, as it would require all one's memories. -Stephen Hawking

Some friends of mine bothered me for a long time about getting on the social networking pages. They were close friends that I liked to mess with, and I think that I kind of enjoyed for a while that it bothered them so much. Now they've just kind of given up. -John Hawkes

By 2007, we were finally living in a culture where people get what networks are and what technology can do to connect people. -Chris Hughes

Many of us get our news from social networks, blogs, and daily aggregators. -Chris Hughes

Instead of telling the world what you're eating for breakfast, you can use social networking to do something that's meaningful. -Edward Norton

Young people know how to use these social networking tools, and they know how to use them effectively. -Edward Norton

Wikis and social networking are just tools. -Jimmy Wales

Almost anything is better than three network TV outlets completely controlling the national discourse with their nightly broadcasts. We've moved a long way from that, and that's important. -Jimmy Wales

I need to be very careful about going on certain networks that seem to have a bias. -Rand Paul

The fear for a network is the viewer gets tired of you. Not that you lost any credibility, but they get tired of you. -Terry Bradshaw

The Internet creates as well as destroys. Social networks, search advertising, and cloud computing are multibillion dollar industries that didn't exist 10 years ago. They are products of the same force that has rendered the Postal Service's core business obsolete. -John Sununu

We're enlarging in every single area of the ministry at In Touch. We're on radio and television. We're in over 110 million homes in America plus radio on satellites. We just acquired the NAMB FamilyNet television network, and with that expanding possibilities of the gospel. -Charles Stanley

We are at a crossroads in the music business: with the rise of the internet, the world we live in has changed, and the past is not coming back. But I see the glass as half-full: the internet and social networking are new avenues for the next Bob Dylan to be born on. -Jon Bon Jovi

If I owned a network, I would never let a guy just put people on without telling me who they are. -Louis C. K.

Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard. -Mark Zuckerberg

I don't mean this grandly, but it was never my intention to live in L.A. and do a big network show. -Damian Lewis

You can't do television shows caring whether or not the network picks you up. You can only do them enjoying the work, because if you're always on pins and needles about whether you'll be picked up, you'll lose your mind. I learned that the hard way. -Jon Cryer

Well, I think the social networking is really interesting. -Marissa Mayer

Will the social networking phenomenon lessen? I don't think so. -Marissa Mayer

I once called the head of a network a liar. In hindsight, I should have called him an incompetent liar. -Steven Levitan

There's the psychotic ambitious side of myself that wants a fashion line and my own network and be like a combination of Oprah and Gwen Stefani. And have a perfume. Definitely a perfume. -Mindy Kaling

On the day I started college in 1979, no woman had ever been on the United States Supreme Court or served as the Speaker of the House. None had been an astronaut or the solo anchor of a network evening news broadcast. Not one had been president of an Ivy League college or run a serious campaign for president. -Dee Dee Myers

It's hard being on a new network, a smaller network. -Jensen Ackles

I had kind of sworn off network TV a while ago. -Hank Azaria

The network shows tend to be run, in general, in my experience, by committee, and it's hard for actors and writers to do their jobs. -Hope Davis

I don't compromise my values and I don't compromise my work. That's why I've been kicked from one network to the next: I won't give in. -Michael Moore

I've got a presence on all the social networks, in fact, but I've never once sent a message. I'm there because otherwise, someone's going to pretend to be me. -Robert Smith

Considering the popularity of soaps with the African-American audience, it's grotesque that the entertainment industry, for all its vaunted liberalism, is lagging so far behind social changes in the United States. And why has there never been an all-black daytime network soap? It would probably blow the white soaps off the map. -Camille Paglia

China is starting an English-speaking television network around the world, Russia is, Al Jazeera. And the BBC is cutting back on its many language services around the world. -Hillary Clinton

I read the papers, I surf the Web. At the beginning of the year, I try to see at least two episodes of every show on our network. Am I surfing? All the time. I'm aware of the landscape. I'm a competitor, so I have to know whom I'm competing with. -Leslie Moonves

By the same token, I think news has more and more of a pro bono aspect to all the networks. When we do our election coverages throughout this coming year, it's not a money-maker for us. It is more of a public service situation. -Leslie Moonves

Rebuilding a network is a slow, brick-by-brick process. It's not just creating a hit show – it's building shows to back up that hit show; it's creating an identity of success so that people want their shows on your network. -Leslie Moonves

I'm glad I was born when I was. My time was the golden age of variety. If I were starting out again now, maybe things would happen for me, but it certainly would not be on a variety show with 28 musicians, 12 dancers, two major guest stars, 50 costumes a week by Bob Mackie. The networks just wouldn't spend the money today. -Carol Burnett

Items of interest will be located, identified, monitored, and remotely controlled through technologies such as radio-frequency identification, sensor networks, tiny embedded servers, and energy harvesters – all connected to the next-generation internet using abundant, low-cost, and high-power computing. -David Petraeus

Obviously sex and nudity sells, but that's what people go to cable for but that's not going to happen on network daytime television… so I think it really is always going to come down to story. How do you make a story interesting enough so people will tune in? That's always going to be it. -Jack Wagner

'Green Screen' was a total experiment. I'm glad we did it, but it was just tough on that network to get it going. -Drew Carey

I currently use Ubuntu Linux, on a standalone laptop – it has no Internet connection. I occasionally carry flash memory drives between this machine and the Macs that I use for network surfing and graphics; but I trust my family jewels only to Linux. -Donald Knuth

Start-ups like UniversityNow, a network of low-cost, online colleges, allows students to work at their own pace and pay a few hundred dollars a month for a degree. -Dan Rather

Now, I know you expected me to say that, well, I just kick back in the rocking chair, fished a little bit, listened to Willie Nelson tapes and watched old baseball games on the Classic Sports network. And, tell you the truth, I have done that for maybe about five total minutes. -Dan Rather

Many of the network television shows have done takeoffs on 'Family Circus,' including 'David Letterman,' 'Friends,' 'Roseanne,' and others, and, in my estimation the use of them is a compliment to the popularity of the feature, which just by mentioning it's name sets up the image of a warm, loving family-type feature. -Bil Keane

There used to be three networks, and now there are 40 million networks. There's a lot more competition out there, too. We would bring in 27 million people. Now, they're lucky if they have 17. I looked at the ratings, for the first time in 25 years, just to see, and there were 130 shows on. There used to be maybe 30. -Larry Hagman

Well, I think one of the problems with 'Birds of Prey' was there were too many cooks in that kitchen. The studio, the producers, the network, all had very different visions of what that should be. They should have just let Laeta Kalogridis control that. Instead they decided to try to get their hands in the mix. -Melissa Rosenberg

I can go into LinkedIn and search for network engineers and come up with a list of great spear-phishing targets because they usually have administrator rights over the network. Then I go onto Twitter or Facebook and trick them into doing something, and I have privileged access. -Kevin Mitnick

New security loopholes are constantly popping up because of wireless networking. The cat-and-mouse game between hackers and system administrators is still in full swing. -Kevin Mitnick

The key to social engineering is influencing a person to do something that allows the hacker to gain access to information or your network. -Kevin Mitnick

Is there discrimination against women? Yes. There's no denying that the old boys' network is alive and well. But there's also discrimination against men. -Warren Farrell

Israel has many hopes, and faces extreme dangers. The most prominent danger is Iran, which is making every effort to acquire nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and establishing an enormous terror network together with Syria in Lebanon. -Ariel Sharon

Women tend to break the network of friends they make, but it is a habit that men have learned. It is an approach to life that involves planning almost without thinking about it. And men sustain this. I came from a northern grammar school. I had a good education, but I didn't have a good network. -Pauline Neville-Jones

I think social networks are really working for the drivers, because we're able to talk directly to fans and they get first-hand information. And I think it's great for the partners as well and the businesses that are involved in Formula One. -Jenson Button

I got involved early on in social media – I created one of the first social networks – and for me, social gaming was a natural evolution of that. -Mark Pincus

I have invested in four social networks. More than any other. But that's in Russia and Poland. -Yuri Milner

When I started Go Daddy, I tried many things – like building networks and selling education – and none of it panned out. I lost millions of dollars the first couple of years. I made a lot of wrong turns, but that's the process of being successful in business. -Bob Parsons

I wish we could get a national buddy network going. It would be a great thing for the American people. -Bart Starr

Some Internet operators are concerned that video services such as Netflix and YouTube consume lots of the bandwidth on the network. While there is some truth to this, my guess is that the operators wished they could provide the same kind of services with the same success as Netflix and YouTube. -Niklas Zennstrom

You have 1 billion people using the Internet with 200 million of those now using broadband internet connections, so the Internet has become a powerful network. It can carry calls. -Niklas Zennstrom

A good browser, apps, good camera, and fast networking in your smartphone is just expected today. -Thorsten Heins

With the rise of cable, network is clearly floundering because the characters on cable are far more fascinating than they are on network. Network television is trying to figure it out. Network television really relies on story rather than character, and cable relies on character. -Dylan McDermott

Most of the time people are aiming so low on television. They're trying to reach that common denominator, especially on network television. -Dylan McDermott

Crossrail is a prime example of infrastructure. It is a rather deadly word, but I think it is exciting stuff, the civil engineering which makes Britain tick – the bridges, tunnels, power and water networks, which bind us together. -Evan Davis

I think the rigors of a TV schedule are brutal and 'Six Feet Under' wasn't a network schedule. We did 13 shows, we didn't do 22. I don't know how people do that. I really don't. I mean the shows are shorter, but wow, it's quite a discipline. -Frances Conroy

We need to download scientific journals and upload them to file-sharing networks. -Aaron Swartz

Bravo can't be responsible for the mental state of every single person that comes onto their network. -Bethenny Frankel

We're living at a time where if you do a Google search for a 'show, review and network,' you'll get 'The New York Times' and Pete Billingsley from a town you've never heard of on the same results page. It's kind of democratizing the process so that everyone has access to a distribution system to express themselves. -J. J. Abrams

There are only a few TV networks that really invest in production in the way that I think they should. HBO, obviously, is one of them. -James Purefoy

You know, people aren't watching a network: they're watching cable channels. -James Purefoy

Create a website that expresses something about who you are that won't fit into the template available to you on a social networking site. -Jaron Lanier

Social networking technology didn't really exist until 2004-2005. I had the idea to use this technology to bridge this gap between a general interest in addressing social issues and the practical action. -Ben Rattray

With Twitter and other social networking tools, you can get a lot of advice from great people. I learn more from Twitter than any survey or discussion with a big company. -Daniel Ek

Television is the original social network. Consumers love great television, but they also love talking about television. Sharing with friends the thrill of the last episode, debating what will happen next, working to enlist friends to watch the same shows that you love. -Michael K. Powell

It is literally the case that learning languages makes you smarter. The neural networks in the brain strengthen as a result of language learning. -Michael Gove

The good news about me is that my friends and social network is entirely independent of politics. -Andrew Sullivan

I try not to read the social networks too much. I find that way madness lies. -Kit Harington

I used to be a rabid reader, but now it's scripts or nothing – network television is quite relentless, and you can't drop the ball. -Robert Carlyle

I want to go create my own independent content and entertainment, in new models and in new ways, and essentially show studios and networks that people are good. -Zachary Levi

Ukraine is a vital link for Europe: our energy transportation networks; our location between the European Union and Eurasia. We're the melting pot of Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity. The democracy we founded with the Orange Revolution has to be an example for other post-Soviet states. -Yulia Tymoshenko

I have invested in four social networks. More than any other. -Yuri Milner

Story was that human civilization started to develop with first social network. Emerged where population concentration was high. Helped propel to where we are now. Facebook is next step of creating a huge human brain to embrace hundreds of million, possibly billions of people. -Yuri Milner

The company that creates one global social graph will be very important going forward. It will be Facebook, with maybe 2-3 local social networks able to sustain competition long term. -Yuri Milner

Russia is one of the places where significant presence of social networks are driven by domestic players right now. -Yuri Milner

You know among people who kind of travel a lot and have exposure to the United States and some other countries, they do have accounts, but you know, Russia is not exactly the place with multiple language skills so local networks kind of have an edge. -Yuri Milner

I started working at Bravo in 2005, when I was offered a job by Lauren Zalaznick, the network's chairman. She encouraged me to start a blog. I wrote behind-the-scenes gossip about 'Battle of the Network Reality Stars,' the first show I took on as head of current programming. -Andy Cohen

'True Blood' is shot on film. It's more like a movie, and they take more days to shoot it, plus it has an hour of content. 'The Good Wife' is network. They're shooting on HD. It moves quicker and they only have forty minutes of content instead of a full hour. Not to mention the difference of shooting, you know, rated-R stuff! -Carrie Preston

Social networks do best when they tap into one of the seven deadly sins. Facebook is ego. Zynga is sloth. LinkedIn is greed. -Reid Hoffman

The reason the social-networking phenomenon is something that I invested in early and massively – I led the Series A financing for Friendster; I founded a company called Socialnet in 1997; I founded LinkedIn; and I was part of the first round of financing in Facebook – it sounds trivial, but people matter. -Reid Hoffman

One of the challenges in networking is everybody thinks it's making cold calls to strangers. Actually, it's the people who already have strong trust relationships with you, who know you're dedicated, smart, a team player, who can help you. -Reid Hoffman

Your network is the people who want to help you, and you want to help them, and that's really powerful. -Reid Hoffman

I would like to see every newspaper and every magazine have a network of bureaus all over the world, gathering news. -Nancy Gibbs

There is a place for visionaries and the avant-garde in this world, but not at 9 o'clock on a network. -Bruno Heller

Hollywood has known this for quite a while: Cable is the place to go because they truly have a supportive network and they want to do things that cannot be seen on broadcast. That stimulates the writer-producer. Cable is king. -Bryan Cranston

I've been a huge fan of the cable network FX for a very, very long time. I think their brand of comedy is incredible. For me, as an audience member, that's a go-to channel. -Chris Klein

Eight o'clock is hard no matter what network you're on because people have to make a decision to sit down and start watching TV. Every other time slot is a time slot that happens after someone's watching something else. -Dan Harmon

The Internet has been a great outlet for storytelling. After all, there are web-based shows that have started online and have then gotten picked up. I think it's a great opportunity for artists to get through the network roadblock. It just allows us another venue to be creative in. -Eva LaRue

In network TV, you have to present the box before you can step outside it. -Simon Baker

I'm a planner, and most networks don't plan. Bravo doesn't plan. Bravo is lucky in a lot of ways – they've got a lot of great talent, but at the same time, they don't nurture it. They lost 'Project Runway.' -Patti Stanger

We need to develop and disseminate an entirely new paradigm and practice of collaboration that supersedes the traditional silos that have divided governments, philanthropies and private enterprises for decades and replace it with networks of partnerships working together to create a globally prosperous society. -Simon Mainwaring

In today's social business marketplace Facebook is one of the best places for nonprofits to be discovered and connect with a larger audience on the basis of shared values. So to get started, a non-profit should launch a Facebook page and invite your existing real world community to connect your cause and their networks. -Simon Mainwaring

There is a growing awareness among brands that in order to participate in conversations that are taking place across social networks, they must join these discussions on the basis of something that is meaningful to their customers. -Simon Mainwaring

The role of social media is critical because it helps to spread cognitive dissonance by connecting thought leaders and activists to ordinary citizens rapidly expanding the network of people who become willing to take action. -Simon Mainwaring

Major power and telephone grids have long been controlled by computer networks, but now similar systems are embedded in such mundane objects as electric meters, alarm clocks, home refrigerators and thermostats, video cameras, bathroom scales, and Christmas-tree lights – all of which are, or soon will be, accessible remotely. -Charles C. Mann

I guess working on 'Mad Men' turned me onto AMC and really got me watching the network, and so with that I got a good idea of the type of show they like to produce. -Eric Ladin

Here's my goal: I want to make a seriously dark show, and not on a network that has ever done that. -Maggie Q

The CW is a very fashion-oriented network and they like their stars to look a certain way. I like that, but at the same time, I need Nikita to be toned down a bit. You can't draw too much attention to Nikita because she's an assassin. -Maggie Q

The social networking sites are such good way to keep in touch with your fans, it's quick and simple and it keeps your fans interested in what you're doing. -Melanie Fiona

Making African American films are hard in Hollywood. We need to rely on a support network and bring more cohesion to different filmmakers, actors, producers etc. It's a very difficult business. There aren't a lot of Africans Americans or people of color in high positions in Hollywood that we can green-light films. -Paula Patton

Everyone's heard the same joke a million times and knows the setups. They are tired of the mass-marketed entertainment served on the networks. -Tim Heidecker

You simply cannot do a sitcom by committee. It will not work. You've got to have one or two clean, creative voices in charge, and there's got to be some faith by the studio and network in those people to make the right choices. -Amy Sherman-Palladino

Social media is a double-edged sword. I've gotten in trouble for announcing, too soon, something that the network or the studio wanted to do, and it steals some of the thunder, so to speak. -Charisma Carpenter

I've had wonderfully lucrative offers to do another network series. I could do that again and have a very luscious retirement. -James Woods

Broadcasting began, essentially, in the hands of very, very few players – actually two – and when television came along, there were two networks, then three. Rules began to get formulated that essentially protected that concentrated group. -Barry Diller

Nature is pretty good at networks, self-organizing systems. By contrast, social systems are top-down and hierarchical, from which we draw the basic assumption that organization and order can only come from centralism. -Nicholas Negroponte

North Carolina is home to some of the largest financial institutions in the country, and a vibrant network of community banks. We're a banking state, and we're proud of that distinction. But we also understand that responsible financial regulation protects consumers and businesses. -Kay Hagan

Pay-TV companies that built their businesses on the backs of local and network broadcast signals should pay a fair price for access to that high-value programming. -Gordon Smith

The EU must be able to act with the speed and flexibility of a network, not the cumbersome rigidity of a bloc. We must not be weighed down by an insistence on a one size fits all approach which implies that all countries want the same level of integration. The fact is that they don't and we shouldn't assert that they do. -David Cameron

I was a massive fan of 'Twin Peaks.' Massive. I don't know how any of us grew up in this age of television and weren't astounded, and saying that, I'm still shocked that that was on network television. -Michelle Forbes

Some of the best auditions I've ever had have been when my agent called and said, 'They want you 20 minutes ago, in an office in Century City, to see you for something.' I'm not sitting there thinking for a week and a half, before I'm supposed to go in front of a network president to do something. That just gives you time to be nervous. -Billy Campbell

Just as we accumulate memories of facts by integrating them into a network, we accumulate life experiences by integrating them into a web of other chronological memories. The denser the web, the denser the experience of time. -Joshua Foer

We're all just a bundle of habits shaped by our memories. And to the extent that we control our lives, we do so by gradually altering those habits, which is to say the networks of our memory. No lasting joke, or invention, or insight, or work of art was ever produced by an external memory. Not yet, at least. -Joshua Foer

If you want to make information stick, it's best to learn it, go away from it for a while, come back to it later, leave it behind again, and once again return to it – to engage with it deeply across time. Our memories naturally degrade, but each time you return to a memory, you reactivate its neural network and help to lock it in. -Joshua Foer

I think any new technology that helps connect and create social cohesion is great. But at the end of the day, you and I are analog creatures. We have to take 'oohs and aahs' and convert them to 0s and 1s and then convert them back to 'oohs and aahs.' Narratives that work in social networks are the exchange of stories that are told well. -Peter Guber

If you're on a network show, it's either some wacky sitcom or a drama where you're servicing a procedure. -Mark Feuerstein

I'm a huge fan of good, procedural-type shows on television… there are a lot of roles for women. But there aren't a lot of great network television roles for girls that will let you start a character in one place and finish up with her in a totally different one. -Rachael Taylor

One of the amazing things about the Internet is that the content creators are the gatekeepers. We can think of an idea and execute it quickly, and we didn't have to pitch the idea to a major network or convince a studio head to sign-off on the concept. -Ray William Johnson

With the advent of Twitter and Facebook and other social networking sites, genuine privacy can only be found by renting a private villa for a holiday. Hotels are now out of the question for my wife and I. -Robert Powell

The main job requirement for a network-news anchor is thinking it's the only important job in the world. This is a field where solemn gravitas isn't a drawback; it's the whole point. -Rob Sheffield

People really in the meat grinder of the front lines are not, for the most part, insured or salaried network correspondents. They're young freelancers. They're kind of a cheap date for the news industry. -Sebastian Junger

Perhaps 'Big Bang' fans feel so protective of the show because it is, despite being a hit show on a big network, something of a word-of-mouth phenomenon. -Johnny Galecki

There are some great shows that come and go really fast, either because the network doesn't give them a chance or they just don't grab on to the psyche of the country quickly enough. -Lisa Edelstein

You want to put out a TV show? If you have the money to do it on your own, by yourself, and you have a TV network, you can do it by yourself. But the nature of the beast is, art needs finance. That's how this industry works. So until the Internet becomes our source of entertainment – and watch it, I believe it will – this is how things go. -Nathan Fillion

Being in the industry, I've seen many situations where someone will get the call from the network where they say 'You guys have 5 episodes to wrap it up.' Then all your long-term story arcs gotta get wrapped up in five episodes because that's how many episodes you got left. I would hate to see that happen to 'Castle'. -Nathan Fillion

We've made so much headway with storytelling – mostly on cable, let's be honest – but also on the networks and, you know, I think it's about time that the leads are women. I'm not a woman, so I'm a bit biased – I wouldn't mind if a few roles were left over for men. -Dylan Walsh

My daughter, I'm proud to say, is senior vice president of ABC Family network. She could hire and fire me. She has hired me, but she has not fired me. -Jessica Walter

All institutions have lapses, even great ones, especially by individual rogue employees – famously in recent years at 'The Washington Post,' 'The New York Times,' and the three original TV networks. -Carl Bernstein

Now, national conventions are largely an excuse for companies and party leaders to throw parties for delegates to attend, to network and have a good time. -Bob Barr

Any serious airline has to look at a worldwide network. -Vijay Mallya

I am a creator of TV shows. 'Lifestyle' ran for 14 years… that was pleasurable. We also had 'Runaway' for eight years. We did two years of a show called 'The Start of Something Big', and we did a network series called 'Fame, Fortune and Romance.' -Robin Leach

I feel very fortunate to be an actor on a network whose tag line is 'Characters Welcome' and not 'Procedurals Welcome.' -Tim DeKay

I think for business reasons, fiscal reasons, I think these cable networks can take greater risks and I think with a risk comes better programming. And I think USA has got an amazing identity to it now that is clearly defined with its 'Characters welcome' tag. -Tim DeKay

There's a fast-track if you can do the networking. For some personalities it works, but for mine it doesn't. -Idris Elba

We're becoming slaves to our social networks – and that's not a bad thing. You like your favorite networks, so do you friends, and pretty soon you have market winners. -Max Levchin

Think of Slide as a giant media network for people to transmit information. The content that's in there now has been provided by users – it's whatever they want it to be. -Max Levchin

With news, especially investigative pieces, you've got to be really smart and really lucky to be timely and to not get beaten by the big guys. You can't go head-to-head with the networks. -Bill Kurtis

That's the reason I left the networks. I wanted to write and report and coanchor. -Bill Kurtis

My view on politics is much more grassroots oriented; it's not old boy network oriented, so I tend to, you know, come at it a little bit stronger, a little bit more street-wise, if you will. That's rubbed some feathers the wrong way. -Michael Steele

The Web is actually a coming together of three technologies, if you like: the hypertext, the personal computer, and the network. So, the network we had, and the personal computers were there, but people didn't use them, because they didn't know what to use them for, except maybe for a few games. -Robert Cailliau

Since the 1970s, I've been a big fan of attending conferences as a great way to learn, network, socialize and enjoy a new environment. It's always refreshing to get out and see a whole new world. -Mark Skousen

The smart way to improve broadband is not to junk the existing network but to make the most of it. It's to let a competitive market deliver the speeds that people need at an affordable price with government improving infrastructure in the areas where market competition won't deliver it. -Tony Abbott

Money is tighter now, with the advertising dollar spread a lot more thinly across a whole range of media because of the Internet. It means the television networks have less power to produce shows, and TV is where most Australian actors make their money. -Grant Bowler

I have respect for my fellow journalists at the other networks, and I wish them all well. This is a tough business, so good for them. -Megyn Kelly

'American Playhouse' is very supportive of writers. That's really why writers like to write for 'American Playhouse' for very little money. They care about making your play, your script, not some network production. We're treated like playwrights, not like fodder for some machine. -Terrence McNally

Many believe effective networking is done face-to-face, building a rapport with someone by looking at them in the eye, leading to a solid connection and foundational trust. -Raymond Arroyo

If you're interested in expanding your network, you can't go wrong with Twitter. You don't need to be a celebrity to have fun and grow your network with Twitter. -Raymond Arroyo

Whether via social media or in person, building your relationships is a long-term process, and the ultimate goal is to strengthen your network one person at a time. -Raymond Arroyo

Congress hasn't declared war on the countries – the majority of them are our allies – but without asking for public permission, NSA is running network operations against them that affect millions of innocent people. And for what? So we can have secret access to a computer in a country we're not even fighting? -Edward Snowden

The networked world offers the promise that maybe the information technology industry will start to, for the first time in a decade or so, address CEO-level issues. -Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

If the networks can get audiences to tolerate pop-up promos by the dozens, maybe they'll start selling pop-up commercials, too. -Tom Shales

Dictators can fix up their entire families in good jobs, in or around government, and often do. In democracies, such a practice is frowned upon. Privileged access to the corridors of power through family connections and a kind of old boys' network, is also deemed an abuse of power, and so it is. -Jimmy Reid

U.S. computer networks and databases are under daily cyber attack by nation states, international crime organizations, subnational groups, and individual hackers. -John O. Brennan

I believe the old boys' network is a powerful one. No one gives up power and privilege willingly, do they? -Quentin Bryce

Man, Farmville is so huge! Do you realize it's the second-biggest browser-based social-networking-centered farming game in the world? -Randall Munroe

Roy Blunt is another white guy in a suit, and I think the public wants change. There's a good old boys' network out there that's hard to penetrate… and it's not always in the best interest of the party or for conservative principles. -Sarah Steelman

I certainly think that the publishing houses have to learn more about this informal network of literary blogging and get over the idea that sending an author on a book tour – to Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles – is a successful model anymore. -Jay McInerney

Despite all the hype about local or green food, the single biggest impediment to wider adoption is not research, programs, organizations, or networking. It is the demonizing and criminalizing of virtually all indigenous and heritage-based food practices. -Joel Salatin

In Southeast Asia the world is understood to be a vast, complex network of interdependent relationships. So when global capitalism makes it impossible for small-time rice farmers to feed their families and make a living, it is a natural thing for anyone in the family who can find an alternative source of income to do so. -John Burdett

Google and Facebook, each in their own way, have revolutionized the delivery of advertising based on search and social networking, creating a sort of anti-Spam: targeted, relevant ads that a consumer might actually welcome rather than spurn. -Marcus Buckingham

The early pioneers of both wellness and network marketing were motivated by the sense that it was possible to create a better life than the conventional routes offered – better personal health and better economic health, respectively. Now the 'alternatives' of yesterday have become the economic powerhouses of today and tomorrow. -Paul Zane Pilzer

What I'm saying is individuals have better ideas if they're connected to rich, diverse networks of other individuals. If you put yourself in an environment with lots of different perspectives, you yourself are going to have better, sharper, more original ideas. It's not that the network is smart. -Steven Johnson

In a peer network, no one is officially in charge. It doesn't have a command hierarchy. It doesn't have a boss. So, all the decisions are somehow made collectively. The control of the system is in the hands of everyone who is a part of it. -Steven Johnson

There are only two companies in the world that can help me. That's Facebook and Google, because they are going to make me the largest digital network in the world, which is my goal. -Shane Smith

At its core, I don't view Facebook as a social network. I think it could become the driver's license of the Internet. And beyond that, it can become the pipes and the plumbing upon what most of the Internet is built. I think it's very well positioned. -Tim Ferriss

How do you do something where you're able to be specific and edgy enough to compete with what the cable networks are doing and, at the same time, appeal to a broader audience? That's the line that everyone in network television is trying to tread. -Jason Katims

When he came to television, there was no way I wasn't going to watch. Of course, he delivered everything that you would expect David Lynch to deliver, and more, and he was doing it in primetime network television. Even as a 14-year old, I wanted someone in the room with me that I could look over and say, 'Can you believe we're watching this?' -James Roday

Bin Laden wasn't all that central to the terrorist network any more, but taking him down created a kind of national catharsis. It's been a really, really long time since we had something to celebrate that didn't involve a sports team. I'd rather it had been a non-death-related occasion, but we'll take what we can get. -Gail Collins

An awful lot of successful technology companies ended up being in a slightly different market than they started out in. Microsoft started with programming tools, but came out with an operating system. Oracle started doing contracts for the CIA. AOL started out as an online video gaming network. -Marc Andreessen

Google has helped raise the importance of DNS above the network engineering community, which has been really good. -David Ulevitch

I think anything which promotes heterogeneity on the Internet promotes stability. Diversity in services, service providers, and separating the layers of the networking stack are all important. -David Ulevitch

I think Twitter is the future of communications and Square will be the payment network. -Jack Dorsey

You can follow your favorite company or organization. You can also mix that in with your family and your social network and talk about all these interests in real time. That's the value, not the brand 'Twitter.' Twitter just provides the venue for it. -Jack Dorsey

We already have a professor who's using an online social network of MIT alums to help educate students in programming. Just imagine expanding that in Facebook-fashion to tens or hundreds of millions of people around the world. -Anant Agarwal

Black women's feelings of responsibility for nurturing the children in their own extended family networks have stimulated a more generalized ethic of care where black women feel accountable to all the black community's children. -Patricia Hill Collins

Social networks particularly will tend to converge and consolidate over time, especially because they're inherently governed by network effects. So the bigger ones will just get bigger, their value will multiply exponentially, and the smaller ones will become less and less relevant. -Clara Shih

The future of communicating with customers rests in engaging with them through every possible channel: phone, e-mail, chat, Web, and social networks. Customers are discussing a company's products and brand in real time. Companies need to join the conversation. -Marc Benioff

Facebook is massive in scale and scope. Twitter is a public communication forum, but if I'm following you, you're not necessarily following me. LinkedIn is, simply, a professional network. -Jeff Weiner

You buy a movie, you should get it anywhere you want it. You pay for a network, you should have that anywhere you want. Same thing with a magazine. -Jeff Bewkes

All Internet comedy is niche comedy. If you do an Internet video about Halo, every Halo fan will send it to every other Halo fan. But if you did an episode of a network comedy that parodied Halo, most of your audience wouldn't even get it. -Ricky Van Veen

In the long term, a robust health IT network will support personalized treatment that adheres to proven best practices, and adapts to your personal health circumstances. The time will come when, whatever illness you may have, for your body type and health history, there will 'be an app for that' to keep you on your best path to wellness. -Sheldon Whitehouse

Among young people, often a key factor in them committing suicide is the trauma of transient relationships. They throw themselves into a friendship or network of friendships, then it collapses and they're desolate. -Vincent Nichols

I can't throw anything away. Anything. I'm going to end up like one of those old weirdos who lives in a network of tunnels burrowed through trash – yet I do not fear this. -Will Self

For me, I think there's a lot more room in cable television to tell broader stories. NBC and the networks, they're all very mainstream, and they're a little more conservative in how they approach storytelling. -Gabriel Macht

I created a show called 'Crash' for Starz, which was their first original drama, and that was not a good experience. I had a great time working with the cast and crew, but it was a young network and an intrusive studio, and to be honest I didn't really enjoy the movie 'Crash.' -Glen Mazzara

I believe photos is one of the underlying things in every social network that becomes successful. -Kevin Systrom

A true community is not just about being geographically close to someone or part of the same social web network. It's about feeling connected and responsible for what happens. Humanity is our ultimate community, and everyone plays a crucial role. -Yehuda Berg

World makers, social network makers, ask one question first: 'How can I do it?' -Zadie Smith

'Rescue From Gilligan's Island' was the first of the so-called reunion shows on the networks, getting a 54 share. With numbers like that, everybody else started to have reunion shows. -Sherwood Schwartz

We have entered a time when a writer's first idea is his best idea, when the first thing a reporter hears is the first thing that she reports. We live in a time now when we have seen major television networks take video off of YouTube and broadcast it to millions of Americans without verifying whether the video had been fabricated or not. -Scott Pelley

Since I did the SK Project and I partner with the United Nations World Food Program, I got a lot of different feedback from people online. Through social networks and through the Twitter. I read the comments and see 'em saying, 'People hungry here, Fif.' -Curtis Jackson

Sometimes I try to sell shows with a female lead to networks, and that isn't something that's been a proven formula for them, so they reject it. I do feel like men get the funniest roles in movies. -Kristen Schaal

My experience as a young actor on network television was that I couldn't make it work. I was drowning as an actor. -James Badge Dale

I like the end of the year to be about something. Especially with younger shows, the network pushes you to make self-contained episodes; they don't like them to be serialized: 'We want this one to be funny for someone who's never watched it and will never watch again.' And I go 'Why would anyone want to do it like that?' -Bill Lawrence

I think that the problem with network television is that they cling to the whole business model like they are clinging to the side of a cliff. -Bill Lawrence

We are already seeing the creation of a new kind of network based on friendships: Startups, which are often founded by friends, are the beginning of something that could reshape social relations. -Theodore Zeldin

Conversation creates a new kind of network within organizations. Current networks are used for competitive advantage, but conversation is focused on encouraging people to realize their potential. -Theodore Zeldin

Bowls have become network-owned, commercial enterprises, in some cases, pitting average teams in money-losing bowls for the benefit of a few. -Charles E. Young

For the music business, social networking is brilliant. Just when you think it's doom and gloom and you have to spend millions of pounds on marketing and this and that, you have this amazing thing now called fan power. The whole world is linked through a laptop. It's amazing. And it's free. I love it. It's absolutely brilliant. -Simon Cowell

I'm wary about this thing about being in the generation of social networking where people are like, 'I am my musical taste.' I am not just a collection of music. Or a collection of movies. I think that's a thing that people romanticize: 'Oh my God, she likes this band so she is a dream.' -Zooey Deschanel

The original dream of Facebook Platform was to enable developers to build experiences that were social at their core, like Facebook Photos, without having to build their own standalone social network. -Joe Green

Remember all of the 'me too' social networks built just to have a social feature Facebook and MySpace didn't have? I built one for political discussion called Essembly. It enabled unique and potentially transformative social interactions, but only 20,000 people ever used it. -Joe Green

Without social networks, you're not the coolest thing on the Christmas list, and you're not getting any bite. -Joe Green

For almost the first year of The Muse's life, I would do 5 to 8 networking events a week. And I don't necessarily think that's the right path for everyone, but I realized that as an entrepreneur, one of my strengths was finding the right people who could help us. I didn't come into startups with any network. -Kathryn Minshew

When The Daily Muse initially wanted to launch a job board, our first ideas were insanely (and needlessly) complex. We wanted to integrate with social networks, gather rich personal data to build predictive algorithms, and put together numerous cool visualization tools before launching out to the world. We were just sure users would love it! -Kathryn Minshew

'Awkward Black Girl' is spreading to all the right people because of word of mouth and social networks. I'm so grateful. -Issa Rae

Sometimes I think women are lucky because they can develop in ways men can't. The old-boy network may be oppressive to women, but it actually stunts men in terms of personal growth. -Willem Dafoe

In 2007, there weren't any other accelerators, at least that I was aware of. We were almost the prototypical Y Combinator founders: We were highly technical but had never done a startup before. We also didn't know anyone in the Valley – investors, other entrepreneurs, potential hires. YC seemed like a great way to bootstrap that network. -Patrick Collison

The part of Stripe that I've always found most interesting is the idea of facilitating new commerce that wouldn't otherwise happen. Payouts is turning out to be a big part of that. These new networks are efficient, intelligent replacements for offline behemoths. -Patrick Collison

The Internet is a testament to a connected system that works – it's a global network where any computer can reach another, and easily transfer information across. -John Collison

The world is facing a new networked, digital lifestyle, and we will ensure that Canon remains ahead of the game. -Fujio Mitarai

One of the most important secret societies of the 20th century is called the Round Table. It is based in Britain with branches across the world. It is the Round Table that ultimately orchestrates the network of the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission and the Royal Institute of International Affairs. -David Icke

The families in positions of great financial power obsessively interbreed with each other. But I'm not talking about one Earth race, Jewish or non-Jewish. I'm talking about a genetic network that operates through all races, this bloodline being a fusion of human and reptilian genes. -David Icke

Before Disney, I did other shows so I was aware of the business. They're all the same in that they're a professional environment. The only difference between a Disney show and other network shows are in the age of the actors you're working with and the age of the intended audience. -David Henrie

We in the network world are used to having time constraints and saying only what you have already thought through 150 times, because you don't have that much expansive opportunity. -Chris Cuomo

Personal relationships are always the key to good business. You can buy networking; you can't buy friendships. -Lindsay Fox

People already love to play casual games. But when you take a casual game and stick it inside a social network, it becomes way more exciting. -Fred Wilson

My role, or anyone's role in network news, is to make the person on camera look good. You don't do that, you don't work there. -Lowell Bergman

You know, when people talk about filmmaking and the techniques of filmmaking, we use them all the time in network television news in order to make our stories simpler, tighter and more understandable to the general public. -Lowell Bergman

There's a fairly extensive network of musicians on tour who are all trying to stay sober, and we generally reach out to each other and offer support when and where we can. -Moby

Social networking inspires me a lot and how we are related and connected to each other. -Nicola Formichetti

I think we're going to start to see a new model of civic advocacy where people get together once in a while to protest, but it's more about an ongoing, sustained engagement in issues, networks and communities about which people care. -Alex Steffen

The very qualities that make it harder for women to get elected – not being part of the old boy's network – gives them the advantage of having fresh, and yes, clean faces. -Madeleine M. Kunin

I'm proud of the fact that besides being known as a successful former football player, I've also worked hard to establish myself as a successful businessman, network broadcaster, sports & entertainment executive and philanthropist. -Warren Moon

The time to build a network is always before you need one. -Douglas Conant

I like to invest in companies where I can really add value from my experience, network, etc., so checking out my portfolio of other investments, and my background, will generally give some guidance there. -David S. Rose

The power of Facebook is not only in the vast size of the connected audience, but also in the quality of the social ties and interactions that occur within the network. The Facebook social graph fuels our mantra 'Try it for free', 'Share it if you like it', 'Buy it if you love it.' -David Perry

I don't know a lot of show runners. I mean I met a lot of them in picket lines. I'm not part of a, like, secret society or pickup basketball game. As far as I'm concerned, pick-up basketball games are secret societies. They confuse me. I've never been a networker or I've never been very social. -Joss Whedon

The networks have a particular agenda, a particular model and structure. It doesn't have anything to do with content. This is not a dis on them – they are a business model, run by business people. -Joss Whedon

The pace of digital innovation is astonishing. It's impossible to imagine life without the web, smartphones, social networks. And yet the consumer products and everyday objects all around us are still essentially dumb. -Andy Hobsbawm

Among many other things, a smartphone functions as a handheld digital sensor for the physical world. In other words, we don't necessarily need our real world things to be directly connected, when the Web interface in our mobile devices provides the network access and intelligence. -Andy Hobsbawm

In China, the rules of the market are not always that transparent. So it's very hard. Also, the national TV networks are all owned by the government, so our shows are subject to censorship by the networks. Every now and then, we are told that certain subjects cannot be talked about. There are frustrations. -Yang Lan

Now if you're using Twitter or other social networks, and you didn't realize this was a space with a lot of Brazilians in it, you're like most of us. Because what happens on a social network is you interact with the people that you have chosen to interact with. -Ethan Zuckerman

It's my fond hope that social networks such as Facebook will help users broaden their perspectives by listening to a different set of people than they encounter in their daily life. But I fear services such as Facebook may be turning us into imaginary cosmopolitans. -Ethan Zuckerman

Twitter isn't a social network, it's an information network. -Evan Williams

What the Internet is great at is building networks. -Evan Williams

Blogging got the concept of personal publishing, but it didn't really take advantage of the network. -Evan Williams

Every major communication tool on the Internet has spam and abuse problems. All email services, blogging services and social networks have to dedicate a significant amount of resources and time to fighting abuse and protecting their users. -Evan Williams

There is this absurd assumption that the revitalisation of the public sphere is always a good thing. I think people tend to confuse 'civic' and 'civil,' and they believe that everything that is done by citizens is necessarily a good thing because you build a network, an association. -Evgeny Morozov

I used to work for an NGO called Transitions Online, and I was their Director of New Media. I was a very idealistic fellow who thought that he could use blogs, social networks and new media to help promote democracy, human rights and freedom of expression. -Evgeny Morozov

The bigger the network, the harder it is to leave. Many users find it too daunting to start afresh on a new site, so they quietly consent to Facebook's privacy bullying. -Evgeny Morozov

Search without Google is like social networking without Facebook: unimaginable. -Evgeny Morozov

If we don't like rent control, we ought to oppose it on political and social grounds – and not just by arguing that, thanks to smartphones and social networks, we can create new, more efficient markets for matching short-term renters with tenants. -Evgeny Morozov

Human attention is limited, and a massive number of newly browsable books from the long tail necessarily compete with the biggest best-sellers, just as cable siphons audience from the major networks, and just as the Web pulls viewers from TV. -Gary Wolf

During a large disaster, like Hurricane Katrina, warnings get hopelessly jumbled. The truth is that, for warnings to work, it's not enough for them to be delivered. They must also overcome that human tendency to pause; they must trigger a series of effective actions, mobilizing the informal networks that we depend on in a crisis. -Gary Wolf

When we made 'Fireball XL5', I'd never heard of NBC, and I didn't even know what American networks were. I knew that it would be wonderful if the show was successful in America, but I knew nothing about the American networks. -Gerry Anderson

Once the people of planet Earth are all hanging out together online in a virtual world without any borders, I think it could change social networking, entertainment and even politics. -Ernest Cline

You have a schedule that you really have to stick to with TV and make sure that you are producing enough film for the network to edit through and air quickly. -Amber Stevens

I keep waiting for a paradigm shift to happen that will let network and studio execs see that sci-fi is the same as any other genre in terms of how you approach it – logically, character-based, with challenging ideas and forward thinking – but I worry that it might never happen in my lifetime. -J. Michael Straczynski

I'm no good at anything but comedy, which I think I'm good at. I'm absolutely no good at networking; I'm terrible at acting; I'm terrible at dealing with executives; I'm terrible at collaborating. And I say whatever I want to say. But I think I'm good enough at comedy that I can survive. And I don't really have an ambition for money. -Norm MacDonald

We need a wireless mobile device ecosystem that mirrors the PC/Internet ecosystem, one where the consumers' purchase of network capacity is separate from their purchase of the hardware and software they use on that network. It will take government action, or some disruptive technology or business innovation, to get us there. -Walt Mossberg

When I did 'Ugly Betty' it was very similar to working on 'Mad Men' – great group of people in their own little world. But I don't really see a lot of difference. Of course, on the cable shows, you can tackle subjects and be more specific, because networks have to appeal to the masses, but that's constantly changing and evolving. -Bryan Batt

Many of the greatest composers and musicians do their best work in extreme confinement but we are seeing it in other fields – uses of technology to link people together in networks to solve problems and almost certainly we'll get better ideas than we would from them just doing it on their own. -Geoff Mulgan

The really interesting moment will be when you have a critical mass of people engaging through the networks, more than through the press and TV. When that happens, the culture of politics has to change, moving away from controlled one-way messages towards a political culture that is more questioning. -Geoff Mulgan

Europe has shown how government can be organised in a network. Its institutions both compete and co-operate and include a directly elected parliament that does not appoint the executive, independent judiciaries and a complex set of relationships between the Commission, the Council of Ministers and the Parliament. -Geoff Mulgan

The once-science-fiction notion of hyper-connectivity – where we are all constantly connected to social networks and other bubbling streams of digital data – has rapidly become a widespread reality. -Geoff Mulgan

With a fractured sense of self, we come to depend on what people feed back to us – often mediated through social networks – not what we are. We have complex identities but may become less able to act as a subject – confident in what we really are. -Geoff Mulgan

The speed with which WikiLeaks went from niche interest to global prominence was a real-time example of the revolutionizing power of the digital age in which information can spread instantly across the globe through networked individuals. -Heather Brooke

Our printing press is the Internet. Our coffee houses are social networks. -Heather Brooke

People's social networks do not consist only of people they see face to face. In fact, social networks have been extending because of artificial media since the printing press and the telephone. -Howard Rheingold

Communicating online goes back to the Defense Department's Arpanet which started in 1969. There was something called Usenet that started in 1980, and this gave people an opportunity to talk about things that people on these more official networks didn't talk about. -Howard Rheingold

Wealth today has been created by a world view dominated by fast-moving networks, open information, bottom-up entrepreneurialism. -Jacqueline Novogratz

I am a huge consumer of social networks, and I utilize Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. I'm interested and am learning more about Tumblr and other visually dominant sites. -James G. Stavridis

We can boost our immune systems by strengthening our social networks and decreasing stress. -Jane McGonigal

In the future, I think it's pretty plausible that collective intelligence tools and skills will be important in order to be a part of global dialog, global business, and global creativity. People who know how to negotiate collective intelligence networks are going to be in a good position to contribute to global society. -Jane McGonigal

'Superbetter' looks more like a social media platform or a social network than a typical video game. You know, there aren't any 3-d spaces to explore. You don't have this avatar that you're building up. It's more about thinking like a gamer. -Jane McGonigal

Once Iraq became a hot bed for kidnapping, reporters had to use every kind of trick they could manage to avoid it. This included chase cars, security men for more prosperous agencies and networks, and GPS signals on satellite phones that could pinpoint the journalist's locations. -Janine di Giovanni

It's a dream realized to partner with Oprah and bring scripted programming to OWN. She has accomplished so much with the network, and I'm excited to work with her to be a part of its continued growth. -Tyler Perry

I want to own a network. I want to own a network where you can turn it on with your family all day long and get positive reinforcement. -Tyler Perry

We tend not to use the biggest resource in healthcare – the patients themselves. So I'm trying to figure out possible uses for digital technologies like Facebook but also real-life social networks to improve healthcare provision. -Lucien Engelen

Through historical accident, we've ended up with a global network that pretty much allows anybody to communicate with anyone else at any time. -Jonathan Zittrain

On social networking sites, we may expose ourselves, but we choose to do so. We are in control and, often wrongly, we do not feel we are giving away tradable data. -Julian Baggini

I've avoided doing network shows because I don't think they're true to real families. -Jeff Garlin

People like reality; I think it's always happened from the Roman times, when people used to go to a coliseum and watch people compete against each other. I think networks and cable channels find it an easier way of producing and putting things together, because people will watch it and it's cheaper. -David Charvet

When I was trying to find work after drama school in London, it felt like the same actors always got the plum roles, especially in television. We have a smaller market place, vastly fewer drama-producing networks, and they seem to compete for the same established names for those projects. -Jamie Bamber

It is time to create new social science departments that reflect the breadth and complexity of the problems we face as well as the novelty of 21st-century science. These would include departments of biosocial science, network science, neuroeconomics, behavioral genetics and computational social science. -Nicholas A. Christakis

The reason we form networks is because the benefits of a connected life outweigh the costs. It's to our advantage as individuals and a species to assemble ourselves in this fashion. -Nicholas A. Christakis

There are very fundamental reasons we live our lives in social networks, and if we really understood the role they're playing in our society, we would take better care of social networks and find ways to take advantage of their power to improve our society. -Nicholas A. Christakis

We're not just social animals in the conventional way that people think. It's not just a bunch of us who hang out together. We have a very specific pattern of ties, and they have a particular shape and structure that is encoded in our genes. It means that human beings have evolved to live their lives embedded in social networks. -Nicholas A. Christakis

It is the spread of the good things that vindicates the whole reason we live our lives in networks. If I was always violent to you or gave you germs, you would cut the ties to me and the network would disintegrate. In a deep and fundamental way, networks are connected to goodness, and goodness is required for networks to emerge and spread. -Nicholas A. Christakis

Just because we say networks are important doesn't mean that networks explain everything. We're just adding additional information. Networks don't work like a match – they work like a magnifying glass. -Nicholas A. Christakis

Social networks are these intricate things of beauty, and they're so elaborate and so complex and so ubiquitous that one has to ask what purpose they serve. -Nicholas A. Christakis

Whether we appreciate it or not, we live out our lives surrounded by an intricate pattern of social connections… We're all embedded in this network; it affects us profoundly and we may be unaware of its existence, of its effect on us. -Nicholas A. Christakis

Collaboration is important not just because it's a better way to learn. The spirit of collaboration is penetrating every institution and all of our lives. So learning to collaborate is part of equipping yourself for effectiveness, problem solving, innovation and life-long learning in an ever-changing networked economy. -Don Tapscott

In an age where everything and everyone is linked through networks of glass and air, no one – no business, organization, government agency, country – is an island. We need to do right by all our stakeholders, and that's how you create value for shareholders. And one thing is for sure – no organization can succeed in a world that is failing. -Don Tapscott

Sometimes, idealistic people are put off the whole business of networking as something tainted by flattery and the pursuit of selfish advantage. But virtue in obscurity is rewarded only in Heaven. To succeed in this world you have to be known to people. -Sonia Sotomayor

When I auditioned for 'Jessie,' I knew that Disney Channel basically will do 100 episodes of a show if it's a hit; they'll stick with something. It's a great network to work with because they make a nice big commitment to a show. -Kevin Chamberlin

I know that I'm a quirky guy, to say the least. I don't know how easy I am to cast for a network. It hasn't been because I haven't tried. But am I dying to be on a TV show? No. -Elias Koteas

Facebook is quite entrenched and has a network effect. It's hard to break into a network once it's formed. -Elon Musk

In this age of omniconnectedness, words like 'network,' 'community' and even 'friends' no longer mean what they used to. Networks don't exist on LinkedIn. A community is not something that happens on a blog or on Twitter. And a friend is more than someone whose online status you check. -Simon Sinek

I think at all social networks, be it Facebook or Twitter or whatever it is, there's an ecosystem that exist there. But there's also an ego system that exists there. -Ashton Kutcher

I've been on one TV series after another. None of the network decisions have ever made sense to me. -Megyn Price

If Facebook gets your entire social graph, you don't necessarily want to share everything with your entire social graph. You might wanna parse that social graph. So there's a company called PASS that is a private social network that I personally use for my friends and my family. -Ashton Kutcher

Katalyst is a merger of three industries. A piece of us is connected to ad agencies. Because we get the complex overlay of the social Web, we know how to engage an audience and how to make entertainment for the social Web. And we know how to gain and activate and retain an audience. So we create social networks for brands. -Ashton Kutcher

Being on a major network television show is like long-distance running: You have to pace yourself and maintain your energy level and your morale. There's the role you're playing on the show, and there's also your behind-the-scenes responsibility to the crew, the guest actors and the fans – not to mention your own life as a mom. -Kathryn Erbe

Because I'm seen on 'Oz', a lot of the urban cats in the city are like, 'Yo, I thought you'd be rolling in a Mercedes?' And I'm just like, 'Not at all!' This is cable money. There is a big difference between that and a network. But still I can't complain. It's better than doing a 9 to 5 any day. -Kirk Acevedo

ABC Family is where the good stuff is at. I'm so excited to be a part of this network because they've really done a great job introducing shows that are heartfelt, exciting, and everything you'd want. -Skyler Samuels

I don't really go out and do too much like networking and Hollywood events kind of thing. But I do some writing, and I find it helps me as an actor in terms of giving yourself back the power and feeling a bit of strength in that respect. -Scottie Thompson

Coming back to 'New Girl' was a real reminder of how lucky I am to be on a popular network TV show. -Ty Simpkins

I'm coming for Ryan Seacrest – I want to be the black Ryan Seacrest for BET. I want to host, I want to produce, I want to do everything for the network. -Bow Wow

You have to ask yourself if you want to be the kind of actress who's interesting, or the kind of actress who's meant to play the pretty-but-uninteresting wife of a chubby guy on a network sitcom. -Wendi McLendon-Covey

Now we live in this DVD, iTunes, Hulu age, and show creators and networks are realizing that and letting shows develop on those terms rather than 'We gotta just punch it week to week, man.' Now they're like, 'What will happen if someone watches the entire show?' -Patton Oswalt

The value of the television network is partly tradition, serving as a navigation device and as a brand. Research shows that people do know and understand ABC as a brand, like Disney. -Anne Sweeney

When you are producing for ABC, you are producing for a big tent network. So when you are thinking about your story lines and characters, you are thinking about broad appeal. When you are producing for a niche interest, you are producing for a different audience. -Anne Sweeney

For the user, it doesn't matter whether he is getting access on Wi-Fi, 3G or 2G networks. What matters is good connectivity, and as a technology provider, our job is to hide the complexity of the technology. -Padmasree Warrior

Television has its own award. It's called the Emmy. It's a good award. I like it. I have one. But you don't see movies like 'The King's Speech' win Oscars and then go to TV and qualify for Emmys. In documentaries, some networks have been able to game the system. -Michael Moore

I must admit that I don't really understand social networking models that well, and I haven't tried to because I have just not been enthused about this whole thing. -David Cheriton

Working on 'NYPD Blue' and '24', those two series, I did full runs on those. It's great work, but everything has to align. The producers have to want you; the network has to want you; there has to be great writing; and it's not as easy as it may appear to the outsiders to make all those things align. -Ricky Schroder

You might not like that Facebook shares your political opinions with Politico, but are you really going to delete all the photos, all the posts, all the connections – the presence you've spent years establishing on the world's dominant social network? -Al Franken

Poker would have never gotten on TV when we only had three networks. -Penn Jillette

No one can tell you the rules of 'Celebrity Apprentice.' No one. Donald Trump just does what he wants, which is mostly pontificating to people who are sucking up to him, while the network people try to manipulate him into making the highest-rated show they can. -Penn Jillette

TV networks are dying. The death throes of religion give us jihads. The death throes of television give us reality shows. -Penn Jillette

I've got a Facebook page, but I've never put anything on it. I've got a presence on all the social networks, in fact, but I've never once sent a message. I'm there because, otherwise, someone's going to pretend to be me. -Robert Smith

We all feel that if we have a crazy idea that might get laughed at, there's nothing wrong with seeing if there's a crazy writer out there who agrees with us and can take it to a crazy network and somehow bring something that's a little bit daft and edgy to life. -Steven Spielberg

With network, shows are pulled half the time after three episodes whether they're good or they're not good. It's a numbers game. With cable, they can take a lot more liberties. -Valerie Cruz

Facebook has never been merely a social platform. Rather, it exploits our social interactions the way a Tupperware party does. Facebook does not exist to help us make friends, but to turn our network of connections, brand preferences and activities over time – our 'social graphs' – into money for others. -Douglas Rushkoff

In the digital universe, our personal history and its sense of narrative is succeeded by our social networking profile – a snapshot of the current moment. The information itself – our social graph of friends and likes – is a product being sold to market researchers in order to better predict and guide our futures. -Douglas Rushkoff

The early cyberpunk idea was that networked computers would let us do our work at home, as freelancers, and then transact directly with peers over networks. Digital technology would create tremendous slack, allow us to apply its asynchronous, decentralized qualities to our own work and lives. -Douglas Rushkoff

New content online no longer requires new stories or information, just new ways of linking things to other things. Or as the social networks might put it to you, 'Jane is now friends with Tom.' The connection has been made; the picture is getting more complete. -Douglas Rushkoff

What makes a great standalone piece of hardware is not the same thing as what makes a great networking device. One can work as an essentially closed system. The other is absolutely dependent on its openness. -Douglas Rushkoff

Spirituality in Washington can be more of a – I don't want to say it – but, a networking opportunity. Religion is often used opportunistically in the political conversation. -Mark Leibovich

Revolt is designed to be a home for the next generation of musical artists, and we are investing in the artists and fans of the future. Revolt is for artists, by artists. This won't just be the P. Diddy network. -Sean Combs

Revolt is my new – cable music network. It's distributed through Time Warner and Comcast. And to put it simply, it is the ESPN of music. -Sean Combs

I did very extensive diligence on Al Jazeera English, the network from which Al Jazeera America is going to be derived, and it's really very clear that they have long since established a reputation for excellence and integrity and objectivity. -Al Gore

When I was a publisher of CNN, I took responsibility for the actions of the network. -Ted Turner

If you had the most prestige and you were the network that everybody turned to in times of a crisis, that that was the most important position, in the news business, to hold. -Ted Turner

That's one of the benefits of working with a smaller network like IFC. You're awarded more trust, but trust that I really earned. -Scott Aukerman

Because of things like iTunes and streaming and social networking, it's destroyed music. It's destroyed the motivation to go out there and really make the best record possible. It's a shame. -Kirk Hammett

In the network model, rewards come by empowering others, not by climbing over them. If you work in a hierarchy, you may not want to climb to its top. -John Naisbitt

Every year, the Friday before the new Saturday-morning shows would premiere, the networks would do this big preview special, and I was always glued to the TV. As horrible as they were, they were entertaining at the time. There was a lot of showmanship from the networks based around the new lineup. -Seth MacFarlane

The problem with the cable networks is the lack of money, not from personal income but as far as show budget. -Seth MacFarlane

I would like to thank those who spoke boldly against the 'gay marriage float' in the 2014 Rose Parade. Apparently, that vigorous opposition came from perhaps millions of people, and it had a significant influence on how the matter was handled on network and cable television. -James Dobson

I think the whole aspect of social networking is vulgar and repulsive in a lot of ways. But I also see why it's appealing – I've had that little high you get from posting stuff online. But then you think, 'Did I need to say that?' I've explored that enough to know to stay kind of quiet these days. -Trent Reznor

I had been drawing my weekly comic strip, 'Life in Hell,' for about five years when I got a call from Jim Brooks, who was developing 'The Tracey Ullman Show' for the brand-new Fox network. He wanted me to come in and pitch an idea for doing little cartoons on that show. -Matt Groening

Propaganda requires a permanent network of communication so that it can systematically stifle reflection with emotive or utopian slogans. Its pace is usually fast. -John Berger

One of the reasons MSNBC is plummeting is that I, not long ago, refused to play any content from them. I figured, why? I mean, it's genuine depraved partisan politics insanity, genuine extremist radical ignoramuses on that network. -Rush Limbaugh

YouTube is akin to having my own network. -Marlee Matlin

A tale is born from an image, and the image extends and creates a network of meanings that are always equivocal. -Italo Calvino

I should start by saying that traveling in the States is a bit like traveling in Asia. You need it, it helps to have an introduction – that there is a certain network. -Paul Theroux

L.A. is only where you live, because otherwise it's just a sprawling mass of everything, and I think if you live in L.A., you get a little network of places you go, and people you see, and when you leave town, you do miss those places and your friends. -Steve Martin

China has created very good investment tools, including an entire network of very large funds. The Russian Private Investment Fund works with some of those funds, with China's largest investment funds. -Vladimir Putin

I drank the Kool-Aid of being a network star. Once it didn't happen, I realized it wasn't the best version of my comedy. -Mike Birbiglia

The biggest potential of Facebook is that people can build networks. For business persons, it means that they can build their list of leads, which they can look upon as prospects for furthering their business. -Darren L Johnson

It's funny – I was a big fan of 'The Sopranos.' It became kind of a threat to 'The X-Files' in a way because they could play with language, character, and story in ways that we never could because of the limitations of network television. -Chris Carter

There are things I'm doing with 'The After' that would've never flown on 'The X-Files' and on network television, so it's more permissive. That's not to say that you want to abuse that. I think that a show like 'The X-Files' actually worked better as a network show with the restraints put on it, the censorship that was applied. -Chris Carter

It's really hard to scare people on network television. You've got to be smart about it. You've got to parcel out the scares. -Chris Carter

'The X-Files' was a hard sell because people didn't know what it was. The network didn't understand what it was that they were buying, and at the beginning, they wanted us to have closure. They wanted us to put the cuffs on the bad guy at the end of each episode. -Chris Carter

I like to think that I'm a populist entertainer, but I'm a little bit idiosyncratic, and sometimes the networks wouldn't really roll with that. -Joss Whedon

Is there discrimination against women? Yes, like the old boys' network. And sometimes discrimination against women becomes discrimination against men: in hazardous fields, women suffer fewer hazards. -Warren Farrell

It doesn't matter if it's a wireless or wired network. I think network management can be introduced that is equally sensible. -Vint Cerf

There's nothing special about wireless networks except that wireless capacity is sometimes less than what you can get, for example, from optical fiber. -Vint Cerf

The big deal about the Internet design was you could have an arbitrary large number of networks so that they would all work together. -Vint Cerf

One thing that I can tell you that we have not done very well is to build in broadcast capability into the network, and we don't take advantage of broadcast radio. -Vint Cerf

Nuclear proliferation is on the rise. Equipment, material and training were once largely inaccessible. Today, however, there is a sophisticated worldwide network that can deliver systems for producing material usable in weapons. -Mohamed ElBaradei

You're in a situation where you have limited education opportunities, you don't have any money, you can't get a job; what are you going to do? You're going to go back to this criminal network that you actually made while you were in prison. -Hill Harper

The OWN network is all about inspiring and enlightening. -Kym Whitley

I have always had stuff on the Internet. Way back in the Myspace days, I had a lot of friends on Myspace. And it is just all about, like, networking – contacting people and showing people, like, your mind. -Kreayshawn

Since social networks gained popularity extremely rapidly, there had been a debate as to whether social media was a fad. There are countless pieces of evidence now proving the contrary, among them the explosion in Twitter growth and Facebook's public listing. -Ryan Holmes

I often talk about the PayPal mafia out of San Francisco, people that were in PayPal and got out of PayPal and continue to reinvest in other start-ups and create a huge pay-it-forward type of network there. -Ryan Holmes

By monitoring the activity taking place on social networks, retailers can amplify successful marketing and sales strategies and avoid weak tactics which can later be tied back to organizational objectives. -Ryan Holmes

While social media skills were once a 'nice-to-have,' accreditation in the space is becoming a requirement for many of these job titles. Hiring managers and job seekers are realizing that printing stacks of resumes is turning passe, and social media is rising as the new way of generating real-time networking opportunities. -Ryan Holmes

Sales departments use social to nurture leads and close sales. HR posts job openings and vets applicants. Community and support squads mine networks, blogs and forums with deep listening tools. -Ryan Holmes

While consumer social like Facebook and Twitter gets the headlines, perhaps the greatest untapped potential for social networking lies in business applications. -Ryan Holmes

Importantly, companies are using social media to do things that go way beyond just chatting up existing customers on Facebook. Sales departments use social to nurture leads and close sales. HR posts job openings and vets applicants. Community and support squads mine networks, blogs and forums with deep listening tools. -Ryan Holmes

The basic idea of email has remained essentially unchanged since the first networked message was sent in 1971. And while email is great for one-on-one, formal correspondence, there are far better tools for collaboration. -Ryan Holmes

I'm not an economist; I'm a hacker who has spent his career exploring and repairing large networks. -Dan Kaminsky

BitCoin is actually an exploit against network complexity. Not financial networks, or computer networks, or social networks. Networks themselves. -Dan Kaminsky

Arranged marriages are big business in the U.K. Second- and third-generation immigrant families, with no extended family structure, limited networks and religious restrictions on acceptable ways to meet future spouses, are turning to external matchmakers for help. -Jemima Khan

Odd Future's like a network as opposed to like a rap group. -Earl Sweatshirt

In my view, a philanthropist is anyone who gives anything – time, money, experience, skills or networks – in any amount, to create a better world. This is not how we once thought about philanthropy. The word used to conjure up something rather passive – sitting down and writing checks. -Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen

Proactive giving is what you do when you've found your passion. It expresses your values, interests and concerns. It engages not just your dollars, but also your mind, time, skills and networks – the philanthropic equivalent of leaning in, rather than leaning back. Most importantly, proactive giving is something you want to do. -Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen

Phone phreaking is a type of hacking that allows you to explore the telephone network by exploiting the phone systems and phone company employees. -Kevin Mitnick

The explosion of companies deploying wireless networks insecurely is creating vulnerabilities, as they think it's limited to the office – then they have Johnny Hacker in the parking lot with an 802.11 antenna using the network to send threatening emails to the president! -Kevin Mitnick

Use a personal firewall. Configure it to prevent other computers, networks and sites from connecting to you, and specify which programs are allowed to connect to the net automatically. -Kevin Mitnick

Governments, whether right or left, have become commissioners-in-chief, nudging and cajoling networks into preferred business models without the slightest sensitivity or awareness of what the public wants or the TV industry is capable of. -Armando Iannucci

I'm excited about my own network, BounceTV. It's the first African-American-owned broadcast network. It's myself, my partner Rob Hardy, and some other African-American businessmen, including Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III. -Will Packer

How emigration is actually lived – well, this depends on many factors: education, economic station, language, where one lands, and what support network is in place at the site of arrival. -Daniel Alarcon

'Cosmos' wouldn't deserve its place in primetime evening network television were it not a landscape on which compelling stories were told. People, when they watch TV in the evening, want to see stories, and science simply tells the best stories. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

At the end of Season 1 of 'Cheers', it was the lowest rated show in all of network television… So we turn to 'Bill Cosby'; when he came to Thursday night, he just exploded. And once the audience was there, we said, 'Hey, by the way, we also have this other great show. It's called 'Cheers'.' -Warren Littlefield

NBC's pilot season of 1994 is legendary in the business. In a world where failure is commonplace, we midwifed the birth of both 'Friends' and 'ER'. While 'ER' came essentially out of the blue, we'd been casting around for a 'Friends'-like show for some time at the network. -Warren Littlefield

I was the network president. I thought I knew everything. -Warren Littlefield

What Must-See T.V. was all about was one network, one night, for one decade. And a third of the country would come and watch Must-See T.V. And you didn't dare go to work the next day, because if you hadn't watched, you would be left out of the conversation, that water-cooler conversation. -Warren Littlefield

Our D.V.R.s make up the schedule of the shows that we're passionate about. You want Jon Stewart? You've got it. Your D.V.R. will give that to you, as opposed to making the destination and the choice to spend that evening with a network. -Warren Littlefield

There's no reason that there has to be a fringe network that illuminates an urban or a multiethnic experience. -Warren Littlefield

Mentors provide professional networks, outlets for frustration, college and career counseling, general life advice, and most importantly, an extra voice telling a student they are smart enough and capable enough to cross the stage at graduation and land their first paycheck from a career pathway job. -Gerald Chertavian

There's some people that obviously abuse social networking or whatever, but I think it's a fantastic idea. I've never had any bad encounters with any of it. -Maisie Williams

While I strongly encourage my readers to take advantage of the Internet and social networking platforms to gain a greater understanding of their personal finances, it is extremely important to be safe, smart, and responsible when it comes to sharing, discussing, and managing your finances online. -Alexa Von Tobel

Sense About Science is much more than an innocent fact-checking service. It is a spin-off of a bizarre political network that began life as the ultra-left Revolutionary Communist Party and switched over to extreme corporate libertarianism when it launched 'Living Marxism' magazine in the late eighties. -Zac Goldsmith

I feel that 'Person of Interest' is the same quality as 'Brotherhood.' I think it's one of the smartest network television shows on the air today. The audience is a wide range of individuals. -Kevin Chapman

The social network is the paradigm of the modern service application. -Larry Ellison

We'll continue to expand our footprint… Oracle's Fusion cloud applications for HCM, CRM and ERP all have a new simplified user interface and an integrated social network that makes our enterprise applications as easy-to-use and familiar as Facebook, while enabling better collaboration and teamwork among your employees and your customers. -Larry Ellison

Desertion is the army's dirty little secret. Since the beginning of the Iraq war, more than 20,000 American soldiers have given up the fight. Most of them disappear while at home on leave, fading into a network of family and friends, and the army does not typically chase them down. -Wil S. Hylton

What amplifies the transformational power ahead is the confluence of two major technological currents today: the universal access to mobile computing and the pervasive use of social networks. -Michael J. Saylor

I talk to my readers on social networking sites, but I never tell them what the book is about. Writing is lonely, so from time to time I talk to them on the Internet. It's like chatting at a bar without leaving your office. I talk with them about a lot of things other than my books. -Paulo Coelho

By using our international network, utilising templates and thinking ahead with pre-planned pages that contain carefully selected relevant news, we can deliver stories that other people just don't have. And that will release resources for the web. -Lionel Barber

If you haven't taken a writing class, take a writing class. I took every class that was available in my area. I went to conferences inside and outside my area to network with people. That's how I got my agent. I found my agent through another agent who was at a conference. -Kimberly Willis Holt

By cultivating rich social networks, by cultivating weak ties, not just close ties but the weak ties, by becoming connectors and by connecting others so that they connect us, we create a world in which these self-amplifying feedback loops feed on top of each other. -Jason Silva

I was at the University of Miami, and I still had, like, a semester or so left. And through the film school, I found out that Al Gore was launching a new TV network; they were looking for passionate young storytellers to transform television, which was, like, ambiguous but magnificent-sounding. -Jason Silva

I've built a network that curates interestingness. In my universe, it encompasses thousands and thousands of filters and people, each person being a filter. So it's kinda cool. Like I've created my own utopia, removing the boring stuff and showing only the amazing stuff. -Jason Silva

For the working actor, there's nothing more stable than a network television show. -Reggie Lee

Pilot season can be maddening. You're basically putting yourself and your talent out there to be scrutinized several times a day for months by network executives who have probably never acted in anything since their junior high school production of 'The Wiz.' -Reid Scott

On 'Frasier,' a network executive once suggested that one week we have John Lithgow play Frasier and Kelsey Grammar play Lithgow's role on '3rd Rock From the Sun;' I've been deeply afraid of the idea of a crossover ever since. -Christopher Lloyd

It's true that I love to connect with my fans on the social networking sites, but I try not to go overboard, ever. I just give people a peek into my mind space, but never bombard them with my tweets. -A. R. Rahman

I have a pretty active presence on social networking sites, and every day there are messages from so many young girls telling me that they are happy B-Town has curvy women like me. I feel you should be happy the way you are. Of course, fitness is important, but not to the extent of obsession! -Sonakshi Sinha

Facebook is by far the largest of these social networking sites, and starting with its ill-fated Beacon service, privacy concerns have more than once been raised about how the ubiquitous social networking site handles its user data. -Michael Bennet

Social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr provide an unparalleled ability for people to stay connected in new and unique ways. -Michael Bennet

As we all become increasingly reliant on social networking websites and new technologies to stay connected, it's important to remain cognizant of how private personal information and data is handled. -Michael Bennet

The act of eating is very political. You buy from the right people, you support the right network of farmers and suppliers who care about the land and what they put in the food. -Alice Waters

Because books are written by individuals, it has often made knowledge seem like the product of individuals, even though everybody has always understood that individuals are working within the social network. -David Weinberger

With the new medium of knowledge – the Internet – knowledge not only takes on properties of that medium but also lives at the level of the network. -David Weinberger

Knowledge in the Internet Age – networked knowledge – is becoming more like what knowledge has been in the past few hundreds years for scientists: it's provisional; it's a hypothesis that is waiting to be disproved. -David Weinberger

Knowledge is now accepted as the best we humans can do at the moment, but with the hope that we will turn out to be wrong – and thus to advance our knowledge. What's happening to networked knowledge seems to make it much closer to the scientific idea of what knowledge is. -David Weinberger

How your social network – the people that you know, or in your community – understand or value a work can be… a tremendously relevant indicator of how important or meaningful it's going to be to you. -David Weinberger

I think 'Teenage Wasteland' was one of those cult hits like 'My So-Called Life', something that came along and got a lot of viewers and then somehow fell into a bad timeslot that nobody ever watched, and then the network pulled the plug prematurely. -Jewel Staite

Whatever you're selling, storage or networking or security, you're going head to head with the incumbent players. -Marc Andreessen

Comedy Central is what these young people are viewing. The network speaks to their audience, which is saying, 'Give me fast jokes. Give me party stories and party language.' -Bill Cosby

With my wife Camille's help, I took to social networking. I'm working with the computers. -Bill Cosby

Apple has always leveraged technologies that the PC industry has driven to critical mass – the bus structures, the graphics cards, the peripherals, the connection networks, things like that – so they're kind of in the PC ecosystem and kind of not. -Bill Gates

This social-networking thing takes you to crazy places. -Bill Gates

Look at the Chandra Levy case. It's become a Star Chamber. The major networks, the cable networks, they're being prosecutors. They're judges and jurors and executioners. Well, c'mon, that's ridiculous. But they're doing it. -Ray Bradbury

The richest people in the world look for and build networks; everyone else looks for work. -Robert Kiyosaki

When you're doing a network show in the States, you're just a slave to the ratings. There's so much money invested that there's this pervasive atmosphere of fear and anxiety. Every morning after an episode of your show airs, everyone is fixated on the numbers to try and determine how the show did. -Jeffrey Klarik

When you decide you want to become a television writer, you naively assume it's going to be like the writers on the old 'Dick Van Dyke Show.' You'll write something and they'll just put it on TV. But what you quickly discover is that American network television is television by committee. -Jeffrey Klarik

Phones were created as social tools. Smartphones are especially good at being social, integrating text, voice, video and images in an endless number of apps that can serve a user's needs, and all without the need for a web-based social network. -Keith Teare

I don't think there are as many usability issues as there are tactical or strategic decisions related to whether incorporating social networking into your site is going to help or hurt. -Steve Krug

What's amazing is that the Web enables you to build a kind of channel that wouldn't have made sense for cable, in the same way cable enabled you to build content that wouldn't have made sense for broadcast. You couldn't have done CNN with the broadcast networks; you couldn't have done MTV with the broadcast networks. -Salar Kamangar

I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended. -Bobby Jindal

I've been watching RFD-TV for a few years. As a person who lives mostly in the country, I appreciate a network that shows the many facets of rural life. -Daryl Hall

In Mexico, a network of government-operated rural convenience stores is offering banking services to rural communities. -Sylvia Mathews Burwell

There is no time and space in the digital world. People chat and collaborate through social networks. Cultural icons garner millions of fans online in locations they have often never been themselves. The boundary between public and private life is now everyone's business. -Eduardo Paes

Over the years, online, we've laid down a huge amount of information and data, and we irrigate it with networks and connectivity, and it's been worked and tilled by unpaid workers and governments. -David McCandless

I just feel like they're a network I have a good vibe with, and I'm very grateful. My first job with a network was 'General Hospital,' and that was ABC. I feel like I have so much history with them, that they treat their shows well, and they have good, discerning taste. -Jaime Ray Newman

The U.S. obviously has all the evidence they need to prosecute bankers. They just need to search their own spy database and then there you go – 1,000 bankers in jail, a trillion dollars in fines. But it doesn't happen. Instead, the spy network is being used to fight a copyright case. They used Prism to spy on me. -Kim Dotcom

In the age of networked everything, life moves sideways and covers lots of ground while barely touching the earth. -Walter Kirn

I love the 'Housewives.' I don't watch 'American Idol' or 'X Factor.' I guess I don't like network reality: I like my Bravo; I like documentary programming – I love 'Intervention' and some things on TLC more than others – but the 'Real Housewives' to me are really revolutionary, in terms of giving camera time to women of a certain age. -Julie Klausner

Even to build a vote bank, you need to tackle the problems people face. Rural jobs that stop migration to cities, road networks for better connectivity, and a sense of security get people to vote for you. -Jitin Prasada

Our first challenge is to ensure safety of pilgrims, and we will use modern technology for that. We will strengthen our telecom network and will provide special mobile apps to the pilgrims at the time of registration. -Harish Rawat

Today, for the first time – and the Obama campaign showed us this – we can go from the digital world, from the self-organizing power of networks, to the physical one. -Carlo Ratti

As people talk, text and browse, telecommunication networks are capturing urban flows in real time and crystallizing them as Google's traffic congestion maps. -Carlo Ratti

Like a tracer running through the veins of the city, networks of air quality sensors attached to bikes can help measure an individual's exposure to pollution and draw a dynamic map of the urban air on a human scale, as in the case of the Copenhagen Wheel developed by new startup Superpedestrian. -Carlo Ratti

Phone networks can capture life on our planet. -Carlo Ratti

As long as government is allowed to collect all Internet data, the perceived exigency will drive honest civil servants to reach more broadly and deeply into our networked lives. -Yochai Benkler

If networked science is to reach its potential, scientists will have to embrace and reward the open sharing of all forms of scientific knowledge, not just traditional journal publication. Networked science must be open science. -Michael Nielsen

In some of the great cities of Europe – Paris, Vienna, Prague, and Brussels – tourists bored with life above ground can descend below. All these cities have sewer museums and tours, and all expose their underbelly willingly to the curious. But not London, arguably the home of the most splendid sewer network in Europe. -Rose George

For decades, Barbara Walters has been described as a broadcast pioneer – and with good reason. In 1974, Walters became the first female host of the 'Today' show. In 1976, she became the first woman to serve as a network-news anchor. In 1984, she moderated the first presidential debate between Walter Mondale and Ronald Reagan. -Michael Specter

I was approached about having my own network many, many years ago. There were some people who wanted to start up a network, and I didn't want to get that involved in the business aspect of it. -Dolly Parton

Immediately after 11 September, the U.S. closed down the Somali charitable network Al-Barakaat on grounds that it was financing terror. This achievement was hailed one of the great successes of the 'war on terror.' In contrast, Washington's withdrawal of its charges as without merit a year later aroused little notice. -Noam Chomsky

I'm not a child star, but you could say that I've grown up on TV. I went from being an unknown, down-and-out comic from Brooklyn and the Bronx to being a regular character on a major network comedy called 'Martin.' From there I went on to become the most notable black comic on 'Saturday Night Live' since Eddie Murphy. -Tracy Morgan

Back in East Texas, all three networks have stations in my hometown of Tyler, and for a town that small, 85,000, to have all three networks, they all have their own news programs, six and 10, and they're always looking for news. Back when I was a judge, they were constantly coming to the courthouse and asking for comments. -Louie Gohmert

It used to be that you had to do a certain number of episodes to hit syndication in order to try to keep a show on, because it's important to the network because it sells good commercial time. That's really not how HBO does things. -Terence Winter

If you look at where the tried and true of Silicon Valley VC's are investing, it's in people who understand what it takes, who've been through it and have a network of people they can tap and resources to pull together. -Tony Fadell

There's probably a little more creative freedom in cable versus network, a little less of a committee looking over everyone's shoulder, but it depends on the network; it depends on the show; it depends on who the head writer or show runner is and what track record they have. -Timothy Hutton

Once you get off the network news train, it's hard to get back on. -Jane Clayson

I know the rigors of network news. I didn't want to be jumping on an airplane twice a week. I didn't want to be tied to my pager and my cellphone. -Jane Clayson

Comedy Central was a great network, but 'Chappelle's Show' took it to a completely different level. Other shows got bigger because so many viewers were watching the 'Chappelle' reruns. For BET, the 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' has that same potential. -Kevin Hart

Traditional PCs face competition from specialty products like Palm Pilots and from the servers that provide the nodes in computer networks. Microsoft's Windows CE hasn't done too well in the specialty-device market, and its Windows NT faces strong competition for server customers. -Virginia Postrel

Y2K hype taps our native discomfort with the realities of a dynamic, evolving social order. It elevates personal, local contact over the impersonality of the 'extended order' of trade and technological networks. It suggests that we can wipe the slate clean and start from scratch. -Virginia Postrel

The Arab spring that began in 2010 was driven by the educated youth who were connected to the outside world. They had visions of liberal politics derived from social networks. They used innovative means to spread awareness and to network among activists. -Wadah Khanfar

News is the backbone of our network; the main commodity and the main successes of Al Jazeera came out of our involvement in covering the news in the Middle East. -Wadah Khanfar

Once Europe's colonial empires were sent into deep decline, thanks to World War II, America became globalization's primary replicating force, integrating Asia into its low-end production networks across the second half of the twentieth century – just like Europe had integrated the U.S. before. -Thomas P.M. Barnett

Advances in technology – hugely beneficial though they are – render us vulnerable in new ways. For instance, our interconnected world depends on elaborate networks: electric power grids, air traffic control, international finance, just-in-time delivery, and so forth. -Martin Rees

I think that 'Lost' is a bit of a dinosaur in terms of the type of show it is. The economics just don't support making a show this big and complicated profitable enough for a network. -Carlton Cuse

By 1988, I'm seeing this commercial phenomenon beginning to show up. Hardware makers are selling routers to universities so they can build up their campus networks. So I remember thinking, 'Well, how are we going to get this in the hands of the general public?' There were no public Internet services at that point. -Vint Cerf

The bottom-up, loosely-coupled, bilateral and multi-stakeholder practices that have created the network of networks we call the Internet allow for a broad range of business models. -Vint Cerf

The idea was that you could grow a system like the Internet one network at a time and then interconnect them. In some sense, the most important thing was the invention of the architecture protocols that enabled the Internet. -Vint Cerf

I think exploring the Internet's – and the Web's – ability to facilitate personal linkages is remarkable; and expect to see additional social networking applications and services emerge. -Vint Cerf

The Internet is literally a network of networks. -Vint Cerf

I couldn't even get an audition for network TV at home in Ireland. -Jack Reynor

Long-term power purchase agreements are very important from an Indian perspective, not only in terms of supplying regular power across the country, but also for efficacy of the transmission network. -Jyotiraditya Madhavrao Scindia

Even in democratic society, we don't have good answers how to balance the need for security on one hand and the protection of free speech on the other in our digital networks. -Rebecca MacKinnon

I am well aware of the facts presented by numerous security experts on the many ways in which the United States' digital networks have come under siege by cybercriminals and under daily assault by hackers in league with various foreign governments. -Rebecca MacKinnon

The potential for the abuse of power through digital networks – upon which we the people now depend for nearly everything, including our politics – is one of the most insidious threats to democracy in the Internet age. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter should be urged to adhere to business practices that maximize the safety of activists using their platforms. -Rebecca MacKinnon

WikiLeaks published the Afghan War Logs and U.S. diplomatic cables stolen from a classified network by an Army private. -Rebecca MacKinnon

In the wake of the Internet getting shut down in Egypt – something that also happened in Xinjiang – I know that there are groups working on ways to help people get online when domestic networks get shut down. This could also be of use to some people in China. -Rebecca MacKinnon

There isn't much question that the person who obtained the WikiLeaks cables from a classified U.S. government network broke U.S. law and should expect to face the consequences. The legal rights of a website that publishes material acquired from that person, however, are much more controversial. -Rebecca MacKinnon

In the future, 'the networked' will sometimes form alliances with the Silicon Valley companies against Congress, but sometimes we are going to want and need to target our campaigns for change at the companies themselves. -Rebecca MacKinnon

You don't have to be a nerd or a programmer or a network engineer to make a difference. -Rebecca MacKinnon

It becomes dangerous for somebody who doesn't want their boss to know their sexual preference to use online networks to push for laws supporting gay marriage or same-sex partner rights if they can't do so with a pseudonym. -Rebecca MacKinnon

In China, Vietnam, Russia and several former Soviet states, the dominant social networks are run by local companies whose relationship with the government actually constrains the empowering potential of social networks. -Rebecca MacKinnon

The mobile Internet is growing, fueled by increasing smartphone penetration and better networks. -Chua Sock Koong

I don't set out to be connected. My business has allowed me to meet lots of interesting people, some of whom have become friends; but you can't force it. This terrible word – 'networking' – I really hate. -Ben Elliot

A CBS spokesman said the network's policy was tightened in September 2006 to forbid contributions to political campaigns. Previously, there was a bit of wiggle room. -Bill Dedman

Through the Internet, I've developed a strong social network – something I could never do if I had to keep my choice of peers within school grounds. -Aaron Swartz

I think ad networks is an ongoing story. Federated was a chapter in that story, and it continues to write a new one. -John Battelle

In the past, Google has used teams of humans to 'read' its street address images – in essence, to render images into actionable data. But using neural network technology, the company has trained computers to extract that data automatically – and with a level of accuracy that meets or beats human operators. -John Battelle

I've always liked the fact that anyone with a great idea, access to the Internet, and an unrelenting will can spark a world-beating company simply by standing up code on the Internet and/or leveraging the information and relationship network that is the web. That's how Facebook started, after all. -John Battelle

ESPN is a very anchor-driven network, which I love. -Hannah Storm

I always wanted to be a part of a New York-based label, so I've worked really hard to try and network with people that I felt would put me in the right place. -Bridget Kelly

The network made me join Twitter. I am very scared of social media, and I don't know how to use it, so it's kind of trial and error. -Jay Ryan

My favorite charity is the Women's Refugee Commission and the Nomi network. -Mamie Gummer

Even a very brief tape-delay introduces a form of censorship into the broadcast – not direct governmental control, but it means that a network representative is in effect guessing at what a government might tolerate, which can be even worse. -Frank Pierson

No one can keep track of how many people use Internet, how many machines it can reach, or even how many sub- and sub-sub-networks form a part of it. -Barton Gellman

I've always shied away from online data storage. I don't even use my employers' network drives for anything sensitive. I want to control access myself. -Barton Gellman

In the urgent aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, with more attacks thought to be imminent, analysts wanted to use 'contact chaining' techniques to build what the NSA describes as network graphs of people who represented potential threats. -Barton Gellman

Anybody that thought the genome was going to directly provide drugs was a fool. Biological networks are not simple, and making drugs to affect them won't be simple. -Leroy Hood

Each form of Alzheimer's disease should perturb different brain networks and so influence the concentration of different proteins that can be measured in the blood. -Leroy Hood

I really utilize all of my social networking sites. -Bethany Mota

I really enjoy computer networking. -Matt Mullenweg

I don't think BuddyPress will be something you use instead of your existing social networks… but if you wanted to start something new maybe with more control, friendlier terms of service, or just something customized and tweaked to fit exactly into your existing site, then BuddyPress is a great framework to use. -Matt Mullenweg

It turns out that social networks drive a heck of a lot of traffic to blogs. -Matt Mullenweg

Now an audience of more than 1 billion people is only a click away from every voice online, and remarkable stories and content can gain flash audiences as people share via social networks, blogs and e-mail. This radically equalizes the power relationship between, say, a blogger and a multibillion dollar corporation. -Matt Mullenweg

I have a great support network – my family, my model agency Storm, and people I work with in the fashion industry. And, of course, there are all my followers on Twitter who stop me from feeling lonely; I love them all. They keep me grounded. -Cara Delevingne

I think social networking is absolutely here to stay. Now, whether or not the label will Facebook forever, depends in part, I think, on whether Facebook wants to try to be less proprietary, be more central to the operation of defining and stewarding identity online. -Jonathan Zittrain

We face paired dangers. The first is that our networks are successfully attacked. The second is that our fear of attack will cause us to destroy what makes the Internet special. -Jonathan Zittrain

Facebook draws from the public and public-interest sphere, a simultaneously bold and modest step towards acknowledging that our new networked technologies deeply affect our lives in ways not always captured or best shaped by the typical template of consumer and seller. -Jonathan Zittrain

The Mesh difference is that with GPS-enabled mobile Web devices and social networks, physical goods are now easily located in space and time. -Lisa Gansky

Those projects most successful on Kickstarter – those that receive funding completely and quickly – do so largely because the creator has a strong social network and invites people to be engaged. -Lisa Gansky

Cities are ripe for redesign, and many are already well on that path. Cloud-based networks that provide easy and inexpensive access to and tracking of services like transportation, energy, waste management, bill pay, citizen engagement and more are testing and enriching their services. -Lisa Gansky

Twitter and Facebook are such amazing networks for me to introduce myself to the world and for fans around the world to introduce themselves to me. -Jenn Proske

I studied business and also studied film, then I graduated, and I worked at a network. I was able to use my business skills there – I was an associate producer for a little bit. -Manish Dayal

The first heart you win over is that casting director. In first meetings, they'll be the ones who see your pitch for the character. And then as you get further up, they'll be the ones reading with you in front of the network. -Michael Mosley

ABC Family is really restructuring their network because there's a new kind of family, so I think they're really trying to step away from that younger audience, and they're bringing a network that can bring more to an older demographic. -Matt Dallas

The first time I looked at Yammer, I thought I was on Facebook. Work is not a social network, with serendipitous communications and photo collections. Work is about managing tasks and responding to things quickly. -Dustin Moskovitz

There's a way to do networking that isn't overly brown-nosing. -Jill Abramson

I've actually done three pilots for Disney. I met with the network when I was 16 years old and had just started acting. I would fly to Los Angeles to film pilots, then fly back to Dallas, where I grew up. -Spencer Boldman

I'm probably a little too impatient with ensuring that the networks and organizations I'm part of are doing the right thing, and pushing the right thing the right way. -John Prendergast

My first job with a network was 'General Hospital,' and that was ABC. I feel like I have so much history with them, that they treat their shows well and they have good, discerning taste. -Jaime Ray Newman

I think I get way too much credit for making what people consider to be smart choices, but it's only because I made a decision to stop worrying about making money. I had done network sitcoms. I had a nest egg. -Lizzy Caplan

It wasn't the first reality show, but 'Survivor' was the first big network hit, and I'm proud to have played a part in that history as the winner of season six, 'Survivor: Amazon.' -Jenna Morasca

Electronic communications networks match trades between investors directly, without using a market maker or specialist as an intermediary. -Alex Berenson

The stock prices of networking equipment companies like Cisco Systems and Nortel Networks sometimes seem as if they are priced for perpetual success. -Alex Berenson

I think the networks, in general, have to evaluate what's happening around them. I'm sure they're scared about a lot of things: Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, and all these places that allow people to watch shows in chunks. -Jim Rash

I came to 20th Century Fox to do movies, and then they started a network, and they asked me to do a show as part of their starting what became the Fox network. -James L. Brooks

I do prime time network shows like 'Blue Bloods.' I've done 'Fringe,' I've done 'The Good Wife,' done a lot of 'The Mentalist.' -John Polson

As kids, we say stupid things, and because there's not a record of it, nobody is going to give you a hard time at 30 years old about something you said or did when you were 8 years old. Online, you have all these social networks that are moving to a state of persistent identity, and in turn, we're sacrificing the ability to be youthful. -Christopher Poole

People started conceiving of their friends as networking tools, like, 'Friend me so you can be friends with someone else,' or, 'The more people you know, the more networked you are.' But we see real value in having a fun conversation with your friends. -Evan Spiegel

I think you have to do certain things in the pilot to get your network's attention – to break through… So maybe you push a little further in the first show. -D. B. Sweeney

You audition, and then you go and do what's called a test, your network test. So you have to go in front of the network and do it, and the network has to sign off on you. -Sean Maher

I think there's a lot of people who right now are worried that people are going down frivolous paths, like inventing new social networks or new games, instead of inventing the cures for cancer or fundamental technologies that will change the world. -Charles Duhigg

As somebody who participates in the overall PC ecosystem, it's totally great when faster wireless networks and standards come out or when graphics get faster. Windows 8 was like this giant sadness. It just hurts everybody in the PC business. -Gabe Newell

There's three networks you want to be on: It's either AMC, HBO, or Showtime. -Aaron Paul

The market doesn't make communities. Markets make networks of self-interested individuals, and they work as long as there's more than enough to go around. -Robert Hass

I think its going to be continually tougher on the big networks as more cable channels do really interesting television. The big networks have a choice to make: Do we try to be all things to all people and get the shows that will deliver 20 million viewers a week? Are we the McDonald's of television? Or are we going to try to be more specific? -Rob Thomas

As I start to think about what I want to do next, there are eight or nine networks I would be thrilled to work with. I remember developing at FX and the executives there telling me, 'We don't want to do shows that 20 million people kind of like; we want to do the show that 2 million people really like.' That's such a refreshing thing to hear. -Rob Thomas

Personally, I can't see the appeal in trekking down to D.C. for a networking extravaganza, even if it is built around a special moment in American history. While I find the election of Barack Obama inspirational, I don't have a desire to memorialize it with overly effusive celebration. -Jamie Johnson

I watched a ton of cartoons growing up, but I don't remember specifically what networks they were on, I'll be honest. But I did like cartoons as a kid. -Maulik Pancholy

I'd always thought that 'NYPD Blue' really would open those doors. While I think it created a much broader template for cable, I don't think it really did that much for network television. -Steven Bochco

To go from working with a group of people in a sketch-comedy show on a small network, where it was all about just creating funny stuff, to being on a network show, and the pressures of that, and getting to know the new people who were involved in it. There was a learning curve for me. But it was an education. -Ken Marino

One of O'Reilly's advantages is that we have a network of thousands of user groups to whom we give free books, to whom we advertise our products, and they spread the word. If you don't have that database, it's hard to get the attention of the market. -Tim O'Reilly

I have to say there are a lot of me-too products and companies. Yet another social network, of the 15th flavor – that's common in every new technology revolution. There are imitators who have marginal improvements. -Tim O'Reilly

With the advent of Twitter and Facebook and other social networking sites, genuine privacy can only be found by renting a private villa for a holiday. -Robert Powell

I do think that the days of gathering around a television set that functions merely as a television set, to receive a live broadcast of some networked programming, those days are probably numbered. -Jason Alexander

CNN and MSNBC, our primary competitors, are trying to figure out how to beat us. There are some good, smart people at those networks, and even occasionally a blind pig finds an acorn. -Roger Ailes

I've been trying to get into comedy for years. I had a meeting with one of the networks a couple years ago, a general meeting, and when they asked what I was looking for and I told them I'd prefer to do comedy, it was as if I had two heads. -Natalie Zea

Tackle the difficult things first in the morning; make changes in the way you network. Treat everyone with respect and dignity. This stops you from cynicism and negativity. End your day with that same attitude you started. Renew your contract with a day well completed. -Rick Pitino

Technology is a compulsive and addictive way to live. Verbal communication cannot be lost because of a lack of skill. The ability to listen and learn is key to mastering the art of communication. If you don't use your verbal skills and networking, it will disappear rapidly. Use technology wisely. -Rick Pitino

I have born-again Christians in my family, and they are completely against abortion… Everybody's got to stop being afraid of it real soon. Who's going to do it if a woman's network doesn't? People are going to be dying. -Patricia Richardson

In a sense, communications networks can be defined entirely by who has cryptographic keys, and I think a lot of networks will work that way in the future. -Whitfield Diffie

The fact 'Twin Peaks' had a life at all took most of us in the cast by surprise. We thought it would be too unusual for network television. The original intention was that it would be a two-hour movie. If the network didn't want to pick it up as a series, it could just show that. But ABC took a chance. -Kyle MacLachlan

Everyone talks about reality TV and that there are no roles left. That's false. Years ago, there were three networks. Now there are 20 cable networks and so many ways for films to be exhibited. It's an exciting time for actors, writers, directors, and producers. -Corbin Bernsen

Playing a positive role on a network television show, it was great. I took it as a responsibility. Poncherello was supposed to be Poncherelli, and then when I got this part I said, 'You know what, this guy isn't going to be Italian-American, he's gonna be Hispanic American.' And they went with it. -Erik Estrada

My readers and my audiences have turned into my followers. They are more than interested in what I have to say in the subjects of sales, loyalty, attitude, networking, business social media, and becoming a trusted advisor. -Jeffrey Gitomer

Celtel established a mobile phone network in Africa at a time when investors told me that there was no market for mobile phones there. -Mo Ibrahim

When I started the business, only banks operated at airports, only banks issued travellers' cheques, only banks issued international payments, only banks serviced their own branch networks. -Lloyd Dorfman

I don't know that it's particularly good for my writing process, but I have gotten some very valuable writing ideas and advice through Twitter and Facebook and other social network sites. -Rachel Caine

I started in time-sharing and networking with packet switching, which was the precursor to what became the Internet. Time-shared use on packet-switch networks, when you think about it, is the cloud. -Audrey MacLean

I am instinctively a network infrastructure plumber. -Audrey MacLean

Before the Internet, before BBSes and Fidonet and Usenet and LiveJournal and blogs and Facebook and Twitter, before the World Wide Web and hot-and-cold-online-everything, science fiction fandom had a long-lived, robust, well-debugged technology of social networking and virtual community. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

I applaud Women in Film – not only for celebrating the successes of women, but for providing a safety network to mentor women and to discuss the particular issues that arise in a very male-dominated industry. -Cate Blanchett

You have Showtime, you have AMC, you have all of these, you know, incredible networks that are now bringing forth their product without the handcuffs, if you will, of trying to sell soap to the entire country. -Gina Torres

When you're on, like, NBC, or – I don't want to call out any names. But when you're on bigger networks, they just want to find something that sticks and aren't really necessarily trying to develop anything. On TV Land, they've developed 'The Exes.' -Donald Faison

If you look at the evolution of games from console to Internet to mobile, and look at social networking from Web to mobile, everything is fragmenting. -Chris DeWolfe

I only got interested in radio once I talked my way into an internship at NPR's headquarters in Washington, D.C. in 1978, never having heard the network on the air. -Ira Glass

I actually don't invest in anything that is social, mobile, deals or ad networks simply because those are areas where there are so many players and so many other smart people in the space, I feel like I don't have a competitive advantage. So I tend to go after things that are e-commerce, like healthcare. -Aaron Patzer

There's a wide range today of documentaries on politics. The central mass of it is made by networks, and nothing's changed. -Robert Drew

Having run Tellme before, one of the things I learned about running a big network is it's one thing to have some people not be able to get on the way they want to get on, but as long as people who are on the network are having a good experience, you're totally cool. -Mike McCue

Kind of like Google crawls the Web, we crawl the social networks. Where Google analyzes links and Web pages, we look at the same thing with people. So we can tell, for example, who you interact with more frequently. Or if it's not frequency, maybe it's consistency. -Mike McCue

I see many founders waste too much time trying to work their networks and/or ultimately settle for mediocre but available candidates. You will definitely have to interview hard for cultural fit, but the best talent isn't cheap. -Scott Weiss

In rough times, pathfinders rely on work, friends, humor and prayer. They develop a support network. -Gail Sheehy

We're crafting versions of our TotalGuide Solution to work on both legacy devices as well as new and advanced boxes with varying levels of services based on the capabilities of the set-top box and network. -Alfred Amoroso

Equipped with two cell phones – one for work and another for home – I like to think of myself as a kind of 21st-century digital pioneer, ready to network, fax, page, e-mail and – oh, yes – talk at will. -Kara Swisher

Now I am not against widgets, those small third-party applications that people can put on their Web pages on social networks like Facebook and MySpace, in general. -Kara Swisher

In 1928, radio networks like the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) and Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) extended nationwide – any major political address could expect to reach forty million listeners. -Joseph Cummins

Because there are little to no consequences for conducting cyberattacks, criminals and nation-states are becoming bolder in their threats and behavior. Russia, China, North Korea and Iran are increasingly hacking into U.S. companies and government networks for espionage purposes or financial gain. -Michael McCaul

To prevent a crippling attack on our nation's critical networks, U.S. companies and the federal government must work together to combat those who wish to do us harm. -Michael McCaul

The Internet, the network of networks, is growing at an exponential pace. It's growing so fast, in fact, nobody really knows how many people use the Internet. -Mitch Kapor

As sensors and networks continue to expand around the world, we'll see violence drop even further. After all, when there's a danger that your actions can be caught on tape and shown around the world, you're more responsible for your behavior. -Peter Diamandis

Now is a time where there are so many social networks, such need for validation… you don't have to be a star or a politician to want to have likes or dislikes. Now there is a disease of popularity in the whole society. -Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

The territory has changed, and a lot of really good actors want to do cable series, but they don't necessarily want to do network TV and make the commitment of 22 episodes or whatever. They find that the liberties and the creative freedoms that you get in cable is more interesting to them than the censorship of a network show. -Richard LaGravenese

The cells of an organism are nodes in a richly interwoven communications network, transmitting and receiving, coding and decoding. Evolution itself embodies an ongoing exchange of information between organism and environment. -James Gleick

I just want a big HBO special or a network or somebody willing to get behind my work and promote it. The most frustrating thing for me is to have this successful act that resonates across the country, and the network guys just don't get it. Everyone sees it except them. I want to leave a mark. -Gary Owen

I think that it will be the mobile technologies, both from the enterprise and the consumer side, where super unicorns will come from. I still believe that social networking in combination with mobile will create opportunities for super unicorns. -David Sze

Founded in August 2003, MySpace would go on to be the most-visited social networking site in the world from 2005 until early 2008. -David Sze

Every social network on Earth pitches me, and I say no to nearly every single one of them. -David Sze

The rise of digital technology put marketers in a bind. No longer a captive audience, consumers were splitting their time across devices, social networks and websites. -Shawn Amos

If you choose a market that already exists, say, networking equipment, you have to compete with an established company like Cisco. Even if your product is marginally better, Cisco can fudge it and outsell you. -Douglas Leone

Getting more and more of our news from the social network is having significant repercussions for markets – and your money. -Barry Ritholtz

I had learnt from my years of being in the services business, like networking and closely watching the early days of the Internet, that scale leads to many possibilities. -Peter Barris

On street corners everywhere, people are looking at their cell phones, and it's easy to dismiss this as some sort of bad trend in human culture. But the truth is life is being lived there. When they smile – right, you've seen people stop – all of a sudden, life is being lived there, somewhere up in that weird, dense network. -Ze Frank

Unsurprisingly, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) – once a luxury for room-sized computer installations – is now a standard item both in home offices and all the networked tiers above, protecting servers and online service providers, Internet backbones, phone companies, and even cable TV networks. -Charles Platt

Our information network is much better protected than our railroad network, and someone who cracks a system is able to cause far less human damage than someone who derails a train. Why, then, has 'computer crime' caused so much hysteria? Perhaps because the public is so willing – eager, even – to be scared by bogeymen. -Charles Platt

We all have our vanities. The retouching magazines like 'Vogue' do is the professional version of the retouching we do when we, for example, apply Instagram filters to the pictures we take and share on our social networks. -Roxane Gay

Something outrageous, in the truest sense of the word, is always happening. On social networks, we're always voicing our reactions to these outrageous events. We read essays and 'think pieces' about these outrageous events. We comment on the commentary. We do this because we can. -Roxane Gay

I think the semantics of mini-series for a network is that it has an end. -Cary Fukunaga

Cognitive neuroscience is entering an exciting era in which new technologies and ideas are making it possible to study the neural basis of cognition, perception, memory and emotion at the level of networks of interacting neurons, the level at which we believe many of the important operations of the brain take place. -John O'Keefe

Don't let a temporal way to connect be a poor substitute for an eternal way. Without first being connected vertically to God, all the social networking contacts in the world won't be enough. -Robert A. Schuller

One must pass through the network of influence. One is obligated to be influenced, and one accepts this influence very naturally. From the start, one doesn't realize this. The first thing to know: one doesn't realize one is influenced. One thinks he is already liberated, and one is far from it! -Marcel Duchamp

While at a biological disadvantage in competitions, women – who even make trips to restaurant bathrooms in pairs – are at a clear advantage when it comes to grouping together and the activities that accompany it: gossiping, sharing, bonding, assisting, scrapbooking, and building networks. -Sandra Tsing Loh

Like the TV networks, once our government has a hit, it will be repeated over and over again. -Gore Vidal

For practitioners of community development, as in any field, joining a network of like-minded professionals is important for building skills and becoming aware of opportunities and resources. -Ben Bernanke

The idea of the Internet as sort of open and democratic and free and with no hierarchy, the libertarian beginnings as it were, with peer-to-peer networks… I'd sort of like for everyone to just admit that we're beyond that now. -Beeban Kidron

For many years when I was younger, I let negative things that people said about me affect my life. What I've learned is that it's really important to find the right support network, focus on the positive things in your life and quiet that negative voice in your head. -Brittany Snow

I'm an optimist. My own fiction, while it has its own dark warnings about pitfalls ahead, depicts the potential of science to improve society by networking human minds. -Ramez Naam

I'm a geek through and through. My last job at Microsoft was leading much of the search engine relevance work on Bing. There we got to play with huge amounts of data, with neural networks and other AI techniques, with massive server farms. -Ramez Naam

Everybody asks me what it was like to be in my underwear for my network television debut. -T. J. Miller

All the networks have always been willing to have ethnic people as the third or fourth lead or the best friend to the white person. But to actually let a black family or an Asian family carry a show, that's something where there hasn't really been a precedent set in terms of a real financial gain. -Constance Wu

It's ironic, really, because I've spent the bulk of my career making my living in a very commercial realm: network television. And yet, my sensibilities don't necessarily line up with how I pay my rent. -Tim Daly

The network shows have this very commercial voice that you have to adhere to, and the cable shows, it's kind of like winning the lottery. The independent film world is a world you can actually get to. You can get the under-a-million-dollar film by finding a good cast and financing. -Jill Soloway

When a television show like 'Scandal' becomes the biggest show in recent history, suddenly advertisers and networks want to jump on that. And what it's showing is that people want to see diversity. -Jussie Smollett

People thought I was an idiot, but I saw social networks were going to be more important, and it turned out to be true. -Robert Scoble

If you're in business, and you don't understand how that word of mouth works, you won't be able to take full advantage of it, how to get full adoption by getting that network to talk about you. -Robert Scoble

Television networks are a lot like automobile manufacturers or anyone else who's in commerce. If something out there catches on with the public… I guess you can call it 'market research.' -Glen A. Larson

We were in the market ahead of competition. We brought new products on the market ahead of competition. We rolled out our networks. We begged, borrowed, stole, put things out. And while they were never near perfect, they were first. And that gave us, to my mind, a lot of advantage. -Sunil Mittal

Government must make spectrum free. There should be free network, but it is not happening. -Sunil Mittal

Founded in 1994 by the Anita Borg Institute and growing every year, the Grace Hopper Celebration is bringing needed network connections, skill building, and visibility for women computer scientists who work at all levels of our industry. -Megan Smith

Kotak Mahindra Bank has very significant presence in the West and the North, and our total branch network between these two regions is 80 per cent, and in case of ING Vysya Bank, their network in South is 64 per cent of their total branch network. -Uday Kotak

I've never done a studio movie, let alone worked for a network. Every one of my films has been independently financed. -Lee Daniels

I don't even own a television. I don't watch network television. -Jack Falahee

Fox does the NFL a lot like they program the rest of the network. There's sort of a locker room sense of humor that prevails. With ESPN, it's more like a pat-you-on-the-back kind of comedy. I mean, they'll all get on each other a little bit, but it's never mean-spirited. -Frank Caliendo

I find my best writing time is actually 6 A.M., before the detritus of the day – the fish fingers and the school uniform and dogs and bills – have had a chance to clog up my brain. I can usually get 500 words done before 7 A.M. But it is difficult, and the Internet, and social networking, are terrible timesucks. -Jojo Moyes

When it comes to individual bloggers, they have many choices now that include blogging for a network or going solo. -Jason Calacanis

There's nobody who has as big of a real-time logistics network than Uber. -Jason Calacanis

The only way to make podcasting a real big business would be if you could somehow get the top seven podcasters to team up and make a mega-network. -Jason Calacanis

I find very few folks are watching their Facebook feed, some are watching their Twitter feed, and all of them are watching their email box. So, while social networks are nice, email is still the killer application. -Jason Calacanis

My goal is for 'The Bill Engvall Show' to be a show the networks look at and say, 'Ooh, maybe we should get back to the family sitcom.' -Bill Engvall

When 'Blue Collar TV' was on the 'WB,' we were their second-highest rated show, but they didn't know what to do with us. They had 'Reba,' which was number one, and we were number two, and they didn't want to be known as the hayseed network, so they kind of dropped us, even though we were pulling great numbers. -Bill Engvall

Facebook succeeded because it was about real people having a presence on the Internet. There were all these other social networking sites people had, but they were all about fictional people. -Peter Thiel

The next Bill Gates will not start an operating system. The next Larry Page won't start a search engine. The next Mark Zuckerberg won't start a social network company. If you are copying these people, you are not learning from them. -Peter Thiel

Whenever I talk to people who founded a company, I often like to ask the prehistory questions 'When did you meet? How long have you been working before you started the company?' A bad answer is, 'We met at a networking event a week ago, and we started a company because we both want to be entrepreneurs.' -Peter Thiel

I live in England, so I take a lot of trains, and you can't really go anywhere without somebody talking on their mobile phone behind you, forcing you to listen to their conversation. With the Internet, with texting, with networking sites, there's already information everywhere. -Patrick Ness

In 2007 I was at Facebook, and we looked at some of the social networks in Asia, and they were full of games. -Adam D'Angelo

I'm not good with blogs and social networks because those things come and go. By the time I am used to one thing, a new type of social media is already trending. -Tao Okamoto

Virgin America flyers tend to be more likely to be using a mobile device and tapping social networks – even at 35,000 feet. -Sam Altman

Progressives know there is something very wrong when a nation divided politically has one major network operating as a propaganda arm of the Republican Party and 90 percent of talk radio is dominated by right-wing extremists. -Bernie Sanders

In 2009, UnitedHealth, a leading insurance company, paid $350 million to settle lawsuits brought by the American Medical Association and other physician groups for shortchanging consumers and physicians for medical services outside its preferred network. -Bernie Sanders

George W. Bush presided over an international network of torture chambers and, with the help of a compliant Congress and press, launched a war of aggression that killed hundreds of thousands of men, women and children. -Jodie Evans

I think old people like Hillary Clinton and I shouldn't try and be cool with social networks, you know; maybe she should leave that stuff up to Chelsea. -Stanley Druckenmiller

Enterprises are just starting to adopt and integrate the iPad into their networks, but this is accelerating, and that's an opportunity for Infosys. -Kris Gopalakrishnan

The mission that unites all of the programs of the Teach For All global network is that of cultivating the leadership capacity critical to ultimately ensuring educational opportunity for all. -Wendy Kopp

I happen to like dark, and I like the fact that 'Arrow' is a pretty dark show, particularly for a network show. -Marc Guggenheim

It's a very complex network of genes making products which go into the nucleus and turn on other genes. And, in fact, you find a continuing network of processes going on in a very complex way by which genes are subject to these continual adjustments, as you might say – the computer programmer deciding which genes ultimately will work. -John Gurdon

The way the Facebook network is set up, it's not as suitable for content discovery. Twitter is better, but there are too many over-sharers. Also, on Twitter and Facebook, everything comes from people you know. On StumbleUpon, it comes from people that you don't necessarily know but share your interests. -Garrett Camp

Any time you build a network, you have to help users find their friends. -Dave Morin

'Fox lies' has become a favorite mantra of the Left, yet there is a reason Fox News blows away the other cable networks in ratings and is more trusted as a news source than any other television network. -Ronald Kessler

You're going to see this 'Internet of things' start demanding network performance and making the networks much more aware of what is on top of them. -Hans Vestberg

It is users that are driving the networks with innovations on top of the networks and with innovations in the devices space. This is very healthy. -Hans Vestberg

We need to understand what innovation will be built on top of our networks. -Hans Vestberg

The guardians of your company's cyber security should be encouraged to network within the industry to swap information on the latest hacker tricks and most effective defenses. -Nina Easton

Net Neutrality originally referred to management of the 'last mile' of the network over which data flows into a person's home, but the debate has grown beyond that in recent years. -Marsha Blackburn

Basically, I left Northern Telecom after 7.5 years of being in one company after school. And then, I ended up in a series of start-ups. The first of those was a company called Sitech, and they were in local area networks. -Ram Shriram

If you don't understand viruses, phishing, and similar threats, you become more susceptible to them. If you don't know how social networks leak information that you thought was private, you're likely to reveal much more than you realize. -Brian Kernighan

Even though most people won't be directly involved with programming, everyone is affected by computers, so an educated person should have a good understanding of how computer hardware, software, and networks operate. -Brian Kernighan

When we launched The Deck, I hoped other networks would take inspiration from it and figure out how to increase engagement while minimizing clutter. I even tried to sell my studio's media clients on the notion of fewer, better-priced, better-targeted ads. -Jeffrey Zeldman

Advertisers don't want to be ignored, and they are drunk on our data, which is what Google and other large networks are really selling. The ads are almost a by-product; what companies really want to know is what antiperspirant a woman of 25-34 is most likely to purchase after watching 'House of Cards.' -Jeffrey Zeldman

Christianity is permitted under China's constitution, and the government has long supported a network of official Christian churches. -Evan Osnos

Americans of all ages embraced TV unhesitatingly. They felt no loyalty to network radio, the medium that had entertained and informed them for a quarter-century. When something came along that they deemed superior, they switched off their radios without a second thought. -Terry Teachout

During the day, I don't read too much of the blog traffic, but then at night, I read transcripts of all of the network packages, and then I watch the wires and some of the political blogs. -Nicolle Wallace

Many on the professional Right owe their livelihoods to a large and growing network of nonprofit donor-funded groups and for-profit consulting and direct marketing companies hired by those groups. -Alex Pareene

I had a very misguided notion of what 'network notes' were. I thought they were well-meant suggestions, perhaps urgently meant, but just suggestions nonetheless. And actually, they're demands. You have to do them, or you will not be paid. -Chris Eigeman

Flip through the channels, and there is no denying it: The world of cable news – and their network chat-show brethren – is very, very white. -Rachel Sklar

Good advice is just watch what you say on Facebook, on Twitter, on social networks because being sued is not fun. Filing a lawsuit is not fun. And being fired and having to do all of those things is not fun. So just avoid it. -Rachel Sklar

I had a spectacular four years as OpenTable CEO and remain an active executive chairman. I think, for me, some of the interesting observations there are, you know, global is important, mobile is extremely important. And then, network businesses are very attractive. -Jeff Jordan

I think if you look at the commonalities between eBay, PayPal and OpenTable, all three are businesses that built a network in a vertical. Network effect businesses are very attractive businesses. -Jeff Jordan

Great businesses can be built on scale. I think Amazon has built a phenomenal commerce business largely on scale. Their network effect isn't obvious to me, but boy, have they used scale effectively. -Jeff Jordan

I have realized over time that I missed the mark with HyperCard. I grew up in a box-centric culture at Apple. If I'd grown up in a network-centric culture, like Sun, HyperCard might have been the first Web browser. My blind spot at Apple prevented me from making HyperCard the first Web browser. -Bill Atkinson

Making 'Fargo' for FX has been the highlight of my career. A writer can search his or her whole career for a network partner who truly understands and encourages their vision. For me, the search is over. -Noah Hawley

The idea was always going to be that each year is a stand-alone story, which did make it easier on some level. It also requires the network to have the creative imagination to say, 'This is also 'Fargo,' you know what I mean? -Noah Hawley

I feel like if we can use the combination of basically data-driven hunches and bet on really first-class talent to deliver the shows, that I think we could do as well as the networks do, who basically have a 75 to 80 percent failure rate for new shows anyway – even after all that development and pilot work. -Ted Sarandos

I don't think, by the way, that any network would have given us their show to release all 13 episodes once ahead of them, and the same way, I don't think any studio will give us their movies to release the same day they are in the theaters – not yet, not yet. -Ted Sarandos

The future of how the networks and studios deal with Netflix and Hulu and Amazon Prime Instant Video is certainly going to determine their future. -Ted Sarandos

I think being a partner with the studios and networks and, more importantly, being a great source for consumers to watch that programming is always going to be a part of our programming mix. -Ted Sarandos

In Hollywood, there's a network of creative executives, and when they hear something is good, it catches fire. -Patrick Whitesell

The growing demand for content across our platform delivers bigger payouts to our contributor base and encourages them to upload fresh content to Shutterstock, further facilitating the network effect of our business. -Jon Oringer

I don't send and receive messages on Snapchat; I never have. Stories is the only feature I use. I think of them becoming a more dynamic social network, and I think it's great. -Casey Neistat

Traditional models of work only let us cross out the needs on the very bottom of the pyramid – basic sustenance. On the flipside, independent employment within the network of the new sharing economy addresses our needs for a sense of community and belonging, autonomy and respect, creativity and problem solving. -Leah Busque

I think we in journalism were really late to social networks. We had a built-in network already in terms of our readers, and we didn't capitalize on that. -Nicholas Kristof

The power of network television is amazing. I've been performing for years but have been seen on only a few episodes of this show, and people spot me in public now all the time. They say, 'Hey, aren't you on 'Nashville'?' Most locals seem to really appreciate how authentic the show is. -J. D. Souther

Be present. Be meditative. Form real friendships. Stay away from business networking events or friendships where there is always an underlying business angle. -Naval Ravikant

We didn't have all the distractions that young people have today. We didn't have these incredible computer games and social networks to engage with. I understand that. But once young readers do discover reading, when they discover a book which they fall in love with, it really unleashes something new in their imagination. -Mark Billingham

We have a network of contacts, where there are very few boards where we can't reach out to the CEO or key board members. -Frank Quattrone

I think for marketplace businesses, and when you think about online dating, it's not a social network. It's not a place where you go to talk to people you already know; it's a place you go to interact with someone you've never met before. -Sam Yagan

Univision is the only network where you pay for more, not for less. -Randy Falco

Put simply, my vision for AOL is to build the largest and most sophisticated global advertising network while we grow the size and engagement of our worldwide audience. -Randy Falco

The key measurement will not be how many people are watching the Univision network. But, believe me, I still think we are going to grow and are shooting for No. 1, and that spot is certainly on our radar. But engagement will be the focus and the main measure. -Randy Falco

There is no debate that social media is a great tool for networking with others in our industry. It can lead to friendships, support, and serendipitous connections with reviewers, agents, reporters, or editors. -M. J. Rose

I will admit I am a little bit of a line fudger. I will change the line a bit to make it feel better in my mouth. That is something they'll allow you to do on 'Veep' unless it's a particular joke where they're like, 'No, it just sounds better like this.' But with a lot of network shows, the script is law; you cannot change it all. -Brian Huskey

One week before my 17th birthday, I had a blind date with June Rose, a television actress on network soap operas, a model, and a regular on the popular Dick Clark's Saturday night 'American Bandstand' show from New York. We were married five years later, one week after my graduation from Columbia. -Robert C. Merton

Politics have been changed forever because of people. The Internet is one of the tools that has helped. And it isn't just politics. The new networked dynamics that are now possible with these new forms of communication are also changing the way people engage as consumers that demand more social value from corporations. -Jeremy Heimans

The role of business in advancing women's rights is growing, particularly in the area of economic opportunity including opening access to training, mentoring, networks, markets, technology and even to capital in some circumstances. -Melanne Verveer

In the U.S., there are around 300 shows in different networks, so there's a lot of work here. -Aml Ameen

I'm a shareholder in three networks in Holland. That allows me to put ideas that we create in Holland on air in Holland, and if it works, then we distribute the show's format globally. -John de Mol, Jr.

I had no idea that social networking would be as prominent as it is today. And it's important to understand what that phenomenon is. If you text someone, you get an immediate response; if you e-mail them, you probably never hear from them. -John Morgridge

I've always felt I had the talent. I've done a lot in my life. I've written, been in bands, done live TV for a network in Perth. I'm well-trained when it comes to being on a set, which gives you freedom. -Paul Eenhoorn

NRDC has helped bring hope spots to more of our shared ocean waters. We helped draft and pass a California law creating a network of underwater parks stretching from the Oregon border to the Mexican border. -Frances Beinecke

Weary soccer players just cannot run anymore and must resort to shootouts after 120 minutes when a result is mandatory, but men on skates can go indefinitely, no matter how badly it disrupts the television network's schedule. -George Vecsey

Being a writer can be a very lonely profession, but having a network of people who can sympathize with everything you're going through – from contract issues to the terror of changing your novel from past- to present-tense – is an invaluable asset. -Lisa Graff

Back in the 1950s and '60s, J. M. Barrie's 'Peter Pan' – starring Mary Martin and Cyril Ritchard – was regularly aired on network television during the Christmas season. I must have seen it four or five times and remember, in particular, Ritchard's gloriously camp interpretation of Captain Hook. -Michael Dirda

Two subsequent incidents of import established CNN: the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger in 1986, which CNN was the only network to cover as it happened, and the 1991 Gulf War, which CNN chronicled round the clock from a proximity as irresistible as it was alarming, bomb blasts and gunfire lighting up TV screens from coast to coast. -Steve Erickson

Reading 'Blood Will Out,' one begins to understand how so many people were duped by Clark Rockefeller. All the imposter needs is some kind of initial agreement that he is who he says he is; thereafter, consensus builds via a network of human relationships. -Amity Gaige

The pickup points are a natural additional network for delivery. For me, the surprise is that Amazon didn't come up with that idea. -Maelle Gavet

The CIA's drone campaign is extraordinarily effective, and the agency is getting progressively better at targeting senior leaders and disrupting their networks. -Joby Warrick

There's a level of service that we could provide when we're just at Harvard that we can't provide for all of the colleges, and there's a level of service that we can provide when we're a college network that we wouldn't be able to provide if we went to other types of things. -Mark Zuckerberg

Eddie Murphy did '48 Hrs.' because that was the only movie offered to him. And he killed it. Bill Cosby did 'I Spy' because that was the TV show he was offered. But now, there are networks dedicated to comedy, and the Internet… it's so easy for comedians to not do things that aren't true to them. -Jerrod Carmichael

I think in a lot of network television, everyone's vaguely Protestant and doesn't really go to church so they can be 'relatable.' -Rachel Bloom

Jewish, black, Filipino, whatever the specificity is, it's specificity that makes a good story. And I think people are tired of seeing the same old shtick on network television. It's just a group of white people hanging out talking about their jobs. Who cares? We've seen that. -Rachel Bloom

You create your own material to try to get it out there because a lot of people are multi-hyphenates, to use the corporate term. You're creating stuff to be in in order to showcase all your talents. I think the idea of using YouTube and the Internet, you don't have to wait around for a network to buy your show. -Rachel Bloom

All those things you hear about networks trying to stifle creativity – CW lets creators create and gives us freedom. -Rachel Bloom

When a network passes, you really mourn the show. The official state of grief in Hollywood is saying you're taking around a dead pilot. -Rachel Bloom

When you're an outsider, you don't have loyalties to anyone, so you can be cruelly honest if need be. The more you get inside, the more you are involved in polite networks of professional coercion that make people less honest. -Molly Crabapple

I am part of a network of people monitoring what's happening at ancient sites in Iraq and Syria – from space. We can see clearly the destruction. -Sarah Parcak

A factory-installed security measure – one that phone owners would have to opt out of, rather than opting in – could automatically render purloined devices inoperable on any network, anywhere in the world. No resale value, no thefts. -Eric Schneiderman

I founded Camellia Network with my dear friend Isis Dallis Keigwin. The mission of our organization is to create a national network that connects every youth aging out of foster care to the critical resources, opportunities, and support they need to thrive in adulthood. -Vanessa Diffenbaugh

The problem is foster youth don't really have this network that other kids have. -Vanessa Diffenbaugh

Every day is different. I am constantly creating, whether that be for my own YouTube channel and social networks or my businesses like FAWN (For all Women's Network) – a women's lifestyle network on YouTube that I founded/produce; em michelle phan (my cosmetics line with L'Oreal); or Ipsy (a beauty sampling service I co-founded in 2011). -Michelle Phan

Of course, some people call me one of the most well-networked people in the world, but I am a very unsocial person – I never go to a cocktail party; I am never seen at a charity event. I have one exception: I'm a member of the board for one of the big European music festivals, so I participate, with pleasure, in concerts. -Klaus Schwab

No first-time entrepreneur has the business network of contacts needed to succeed. An incubator should be well integrated into the local business community and have a steady source of contacts and introductions. -Jay Samit

You need to begin to network with angels and VCs while you are still ideating. It is easier to ask someone you know for funding than a stranger. Build your financial network by attending as many industry functions and reaching out for advice from experts online. -Jay Samit

People are so accustomed now to social networking. Now everybody has custom-made news for him or her. So everybody is a content maker and a content reactor. -Lucien Bourjeily

Net neutrality is the idea that Internet service providers (ISPs) should treat all traffic that goes through their networks the same, not offering preferential treatment to some websites over others or charging some companies arbitrary fees to reach users. -Marvin Ammori

Any 'network neutrality' rule should be designed to forbid phone or cable companies from controlling the Internet. -Marvin Ammori

A network neutrality rule could result in mere 'slaps on the wrist' or involve such expensive and difficult litigation procedures that no small company or consumer could ever bring a case. -Marvin Ammori

The FCC banned throttling for good reason, namely that Internet service providers should not bias their networks toward some applications or classes of applications. Biasing the network interferes with user choice, innovation, decisions of application makers, and the competitive marketplace. -Marvin Ammori

There is just one exception to the FCC's no-throttling rule – if a company can prove that throttling is 'reasonable network management.' -Marvin Ammori

Without network neutrality, cable and phone companies could stifle innovation. -Marvin Ammori

The current FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, is highly regarded, but some distrust him because he is the former head lobbyist of both the cable and wireless phone industries. He's also made some statements suggesting he doesn't understand or opposes network neutrality. -Marvin Ammori

Charter hired me – which, to be honest, took some humility on its part, since I have helped lead public campaigns against cable companies like Charter – to advise it in crafting its commitment to network neutrality. -Marvin Ammori

The Internet freedom issue we need to focus on is network neutrality. -Marvin Ammori

The CEO of AT&T told an interviewer back in 2005 that he wanted to introduce a new business model to the Internet: charging companies like Google and Yahoo! to reliably reach Internet users on the AT&T network. -Marvin Ammori

Data can generally travel the speed of light unless networks are congested. When there's congestion, usually the cheapest and best thing is simply to add capacity generally, not to prioritize certain sites over others. -Marvin Ammori

The key thing is, always put the right content on the right network, on the right platform, make it great, and then figure out how to monetize it. -Jon Feltheimer

There's nowhere you can aggregate more people in one fell swoop than a broadcast network; there's no place you can build a star quicker than you can on a broadcast network. -Jon Feltheimer

People selling content internationally need to be highly focused on selling the right product to the right buyer. If things don't succeed on a particular network, they're not going to stay on very long. -Jon Feltheimer

I read many riveting escape-and-evade accounts of airmen and of the Resistance networks organized to hide them and then send them on grueling treks across the Pyrenees to safety. But it was the people I met in France and Belgium who made the period come alive for me. They had lived it. -Bobbie Ann Mason

We have a broad, well-positioned company, so when 'Minions' comes out, it can be in theme parks all over the world. We own Fandango. We can advertise on a network. We can have the characters pop up on the Golf Channel. -Brian L. Roberts

In our case, one of my earliest experiences working in the company was being asked to be on Ted Turner's board, and I saw that the value creation from owning networks was stunning – new channels, international opportunities, synergy, many things that Turner Broadcasting built for decades. -Brian L. Roberts

I think the vision for FOX is to have a network full of people who have opinions as opposed to people who say news. If my message doesn't fit in, but I get that platform, then I'm reaching the people who most need to hear it. -Katie Nolan

I have no other network to compare it to, but FOX has treated me lovely. -Katie Nolan

Working in network news is not a solitary pursuit; it is the ultimate 'team sport,' in which success is derived from the collective performances of remarkable people united in purpose and dedication. -Steve Capus

With 'The Social Network,' I got into it at first because frankly I thought there was a cool courtroom drama to be had with the intellectual properties. And then what further drew me in was that the most extraordinary social networking device ever created was created by the world's most antisocial person. I liked that story. -Aaron Sorkin

While I was doing 'The Newsroom,' I always had the news on on different networks on different TVs around my house and around my office. -Aaron Sorkin

YouTube is the hippest network, and they abuse copyright right and left. -Prince

Everybody I meet who uses 'WhatsApp', I ask them a question: 'How did you hear about it?' And they say, 'My friends, my sister or my brother, somebody I know hounded me to install WhatsApp.' We think there is more power to the network when it grows organically. -Jan Koum

I had so much fun in early days learning about networking, security, scalability and other geeky stuff. -Jan Koum

I hate spam, and that's what happens when you let businesses onto the network. -Jan Koum

FreeBSD has a nicely tuned network stack and extremely good reliability. -Brian Acton

In May of 2010, I joined Kevin Systrom, my co-founder, and we created 'Instagram', a mobile social network that today has over 15 million users. -Mike Krieger

Calling 'Instagram' a photo-sharing app is like calling a newspaper a letter-sharing book, or a Mozart grand era symphony a series of notes. 'Instagram' is less about the medium and more about the network. -Kevin Systrom

You can build a filter app get people really excited, but the way to keep them is to provide long-term value. Long-term value is, in fact, being its own network. -Kevin Systrom

The reality is that Islam is facing a phenomenal rise with regards to fundamentalism. It cannot control it, but what is sure is that neither can European states control and monitor the development of fundamentalist networks in their own territory. -Marine Le Pen

Mary Lasker was an entrepreneur; she was a socialite. She was kind of a legendary networker. She became interested in saying, 'Well, you know, if these diseases don't have political support we'll never conquer them.' And she made, really, cancer her special cause. -Siddhartha Mukherjee

The CNN international is a different service – it is even more leftist and anti-American than CNN is. That's their business, that's fine, but it can't be getting any revenue. There is no cable network that I know of anywhere in the world other than in America that pays them for their products. -Rupert Murdoch

I've always weaseled my way into Grammy parties to network and everything, but now I have a legitimate reason to be there – it's so cool. -Charlie Puth

Many, if not most, career opportunities come to you through people you know. So the more people you know, the more opportunities you have. Improving your social network is a great example of a system for moving from lower odds to better odds without having a specific goal. -Scott Adams

For years, the defenders of television have argued that the networks are only giving the people what they want. That might be true. But so is the Medellin cartel. -Pete Hamill

I respect the hell out of everyone who does a network show. That is a marathon. It's so many episodes, and it can be a meat grinder. Anyone making a network show, and on top of that making a very good network show, that's an insane feat of Herculean endurance and fortitude. -Alan Yang

AdNectar specializes in deploying branded virtual items across top social networking properties and applications. Virtual items are images sent to communicate a message between users of social media. -Nir Eyal

AdNectar was born out of a class project at the Stanford Graduate School of Business in January of 2008. The founders are all avid social network users and we wanted to see if we could discover the optimal way for advertisers to reach consumers in a way that felt authentic and organic, and yet was scalable to a mass audience. -Nir Eyal

My whole reason for creating a network is literally to bring little pieces of light. It's to continue to spread little pieces of light in the world, to illuminate the possibility of the human spirit. -Oprah Winfrey

The best way we have to ensure that consumers are fairly represented in today's confusing world of buzzwords and rapidly evolving technologies is to communicate openly with others and tap into the social and networking resources that the Web itself provides us all. -Molly Holzschlag

From a social networking point of view, Pakistan is not very far away. -Ian Lustick

Our personal networks, although often small at the beginning, can still be the best place to start when we want to get a job that makes a difference or take our ideas to the next level. -Billy Parish

Bricks and mortar Berlin has become a kind of network across which visitors and residents interact as if on some sort of comfortable global platform. -Rory MacLean

People have now got the ability to speak to each other across continents: to join with each other in communities that are not based simply on territory, streets, but networks; and you've got the possibility of people building alliances right across the world. -Gordon Brown

I couldn't get my first film on the air. The first film I did was called 'The Race For Space,' about the U.S.-Soviet space race. The networks had a policy that I found out about the hard way. I even had a sponsor for my program, but the networks wouldn't put it on because it was independently produced. -David L. Wolper

It's a lack of respect for the community when you're not willing to debate because it's the 'wrong' network. -Pete Gallego

People talk about PlayStations, video games, social network and Twitter; I can't handle it. -Kangana Ranaut

The Internet, Facebook, synagogue pamphlets, and the plethora of TV channels and cellular networks in our lives increasingly blur the boundary between the public and private sphere. -Yair Lapid

What the Internet has done is made it easier to stay in touch with people, and social networking has helped me career-wise by helping me keep in touch with my fans. -James Wan

Verizon's vision is to provide customers with a premium digital experience based on a global multiscreen network platform. -Lowell McAdam

The OnCue platform and team will help Verizon bring next-generation video services to audiences who increasingly expect to view content when, where, and how they want it. Verizon already has extensive video content relationships, fixed and wireless delivery networks, and customer relationships in both the home and on mobile. -Lowell McAdam

Autonomous vehicles, because they'll be able to operate at a lower cost, will be able to pull more consumers into the Lyft network. And as you have more people switching from using their own car, they'll be taking more rides that still require a person behind the wheel. -John Zimmer

The independence once represented by the car has been replaced by cell phones and social networks, which are now at the forefront of people's expression of freedom and access. Once a symbol of 'coming of age,' many drivers are waiting longer to get their licenses. -John Zimmer

The only way to stop the erosion in network television is to come up with shows that are very popular. -Fred Silverman

There seems to be a vulnerability at the networks in late night. They are losing more and more audience, particularly young viewers who are now looking at cable television. 'Tonight' is an old show. CBS has reruns, and having a public affairs series like 'Nightline' on ABC is a big mistake. -Fred Silverman

Succeeding in network prime time has gotten tougher. Every day, several thousand homes are wired for cable, and more people are buying videodisks and video cassettes. That all represents competition. -Fred Silverman

The networks are business-oriented cowards. -Mike Farrell

I started on television. I had five years of network television before I ever got up on a stage. The first thing I ever did was in 1967. This guy Bill Keene had a little talk show at noon, and Gary Owens took over for a week. He knew about this dummy bit I used to do, this ventriloquist thing, and I was on 'Keene at Noon.' -Albert Brooks

The classic story of the Univision network is the mainstream pretends that the network doesn't exist, but then when it comes to sweeps or the ratings, they just have millions and millions more viewers than ABC, Fox, and CBS combined; it's that kind of a success story. -Jaime Camil

With a first season, you never really know how viewers or the network are going to react to a show. -Katee Sackhoff

I knew from the first episode that 'Longmire' was something special – I met the writers/exec producers, read the script, and knew it was special, so to have the network and the studio and the fans get behind it in the way that they have has been really amazing. -Katee Sackhoff
