"It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy."
"Technology is a glittering lure, but there’s the rare occasion when the public can be engaged on a level beyond flash, if they have a sentimental bond with the product."
"Data growth / excessive data growth and IT budget constraints were the most significant problems cited by respondents of the survey.

"I think it’s important to note that if you miss something, that’s OK. You can’t absorb it all. I mean, I have a job to do and I have a family to keep, and the rest.

Because the big change that is going to upset your nice apple cart is right around the corner. Today that is mobile. Tomorrow, who knows? I am trying like hell to figure out what that will be and jump on it. Because that’s how you play this game."
