After a while you wind up ending it all just to make things quiet again."

He studied the figural diagrams that brought organic patterns into play, birdwing and chambered shell. It was shallow thinking to maintain that numbers and charts were the cold compression of unruly human energies, every sort of yearning and midnight sweat reduced to lucid units in the financial markets.

This was the eloquence of alphabets and numeric systems, now fully realized in electronic form, in the zero-oneness of the world, the digital imperative that defined every breath of the planet's living billions. Here was the heave of the biosphere. Our bodies and oceans were here, knowable and whole."

They learned to speak digital as a mother tongue."

Author: Sherry Turkle
42. "The digital communications technology that was once imagined as a universe of transparent and perpetual illumination, in which cancerous falsehoods would perish beneath a saturation bombardment of irradiating data, has instead generated a much murkier and verification-free habitat where a google-generated search will deliver an electronic page on which links to lies and lunacy appear in identical format as those to truths and sanity.

The quickest visit to say, a site called Stormfront will persuade you that the demonic is in fact the best customer of the electronic."

Click, swish, "Checks," swish, click: another five minutes of life down the drain. And spent in this place."

I am of that generation. I will do anything for my family except see them."
