The perception in Silicon Valley is that if you dress well, you couldn’t possibly be smart, or you’re in P.R. but couldn’t possibly run a company.

Leila Janah
I always tell women that the fact that you’re different and that you’re noticed, because there are few of us in the tech industry, is something you can leverage as an advantage.
Padmasree Warrior
For me, pop culture is very fluid: it’s music, it’s movies, it’s books, it’s art, it’s tech, it’s so many things – and as marketing and brand advocates, we should be able to to take products and services and match them to what’s happening in pop culture.
Bozoma Saint John
While there should be collective efforts to increase tech inclusion overall, the industry must work to specifically attract and retain women of color.

Julie Sweet
Everything is so tech now; everyone is so connected that way.

Daniel Lyons
Tech is all about building human connections.
Padmasree Warrior
I’ve been reading a lot about Silicon Valley history recently and was struck by just how core the lack of unions has been to the American tech industry’s evolution. It’s enabled the constant creative destruction that keeps Silicon Valley relevant and thriving in a rapidly changing world.
Sarah Lacy
Arizona should be to the Sharing Economy what Texas is to Oil and what Silicon Valley used to be to the tech industry.

I have been able to enjoy the strides that others have

I have been able to enjoy the strides that others have made before me. I don’t want to scoff at the idea that there was sexism, but I don’t wake up in the morning and think, ‘I am a woman in tech.’ I just go to work, and my work is in technology.
Alexa Hirschfeld

Mark V. Hurd
The reality is that in a tech environment that is 90 percent to 100 percent male, it’s not super-encouraging for females to be successful. It’s just a lot of things that contribute to that: things that people do or things that people say that they may not realize have unintended consequences.
Aileen Lee
It was supposed to be a year or two just to refresh my batteries, but I moved to Silicon Valley in the early 90’s, and one thing let to another, got very involved in high tech, and formed a company and it ended up doing pretty well.

Walt Mossberg
We’re very tech light in our house.
Harris Faulkner
What we’re now seeing is that big tech is just like any other industry. When push comes to shove, when it affects profit, they make decisions just like an oil or tobacco company would.
Christopher Wylie
I really enjoy tech, but I’m not voracious – I’ll find stuff because I want to use it, not because I’m interested in what’s out there. It’s a sort of necessity relationship.
KT Tunstall
I’m generally pretty excited about new gadgets, new tech, A.I., stuff like that.
Jimmy O. Yang

Marc Ostrofsky
The possibilities that come with thinking about the camera as a portal into the realm of information and services are attractive not only to Snap but also to every other big player in the tech world. Facebook, for instance, has slowly been enhancing the visual capabilities of its Messenger.
Om Malik
When I was a young man in the 1970s, tech firms were scattered across the developed world. Since then, America has come to dominate tech almost totally.

Kevin Rose
From my point of view, we have the two communities: the tech community on one side and the rather social-scientific, philosophical community on the other side. We have, from my impression, a disconnect between the two sides.

Beth Simone Noveck
You can’t be in the tech community… without realizing there’s a big shortage of talent.
Mitch Kapor

Ryan Holmes
My partner, Nik, is a full-time dad and I am working on

Sequoia is a firm that a lot of people across tech and the Valley look to, and I think they’re setting an important example in adding new diversity to their team.

I have on my wall right now a front page of the ‘Journal’ from January 1991, when I co-wrote a front-page story about Iraq firing missiles at Israel. By October, I was writing about tech products.

Leana S. Wen
I believe that sexism in tech is a real problem.

Brad Stone
In 1999, I was running my first tech start-up and learning the Unreal Engine, the tool that would define my career as a game developer, when news of Columbine ground all work to a standstill.
Brianna Wu
Don’t get me wrong – it’s amazing playing basketball. But being 19 years old, playing and interacting with grown men with families wasn’t fun all the time, especially during a grueling 82-game season. That, mixed with Toronto’s freezing winter climate, made me miss my buddies back at Tech even more.
Chris Bosh
I’m a rock star at the WeWorks and tech centers of New York.
Scott Rogowsky
I was doing music tech as a subject and learned how to use Logic Pro and that’s when I kind of had a platform to put my ideas on. It all just went from there.

Davis Webb
Tech never comes back the same.
Samuel J. Palmisano
I remember, once I was stressed, with an upcoming paper deadline. That little Microsoft Word clippy guy would show up in my face, jumping around and asking if I needed help. It had no understanding of my emotions and had zero empathy. That got me interested in this idea of tech being responsive to our emotions.
Rana el Kaliouby
Startupfest is a very positive conference. I think a lot of it has to do with how different culturally it is from other startup or tech conferences.
Harper Reed
To be honest, the thing is I don’t really like clothes. I mean, it is cool, but I like tech. I am a tech girl. A secret nerd – there, I said it.

Susana Martinez
Our goal is to really have young women of color embrace the tech marketplace and the tech innovation space as both leaders and creators.

Marques Brownlee
The end of the ‘tech bubble’ in the year 2000 is, of course, widely recognized, as the NASDAQ stock index erased three-quarters of its value between 2000 and 2003.
David Autor
There’s so much innovation going on, and there are lots of people funding that innovation, but there’s very little innovation on that infrastructure for innovation itself, so we like to do that ourselves to help companies create more tech companies.
Naval Ravikant
In August of 2011, Steve Jobs, the tech icon who disrupted a string of traditional industries, called me and told me he thought he’d figured out a way to revolutionize TV. He invited me to come see it at Apple in a few months, but he died just six weeks later, and that meeting never came to pass.
Walt Mossberg
I finished tech college with just one A-level, which was an E in English, because I spent most of my time drinking and faffing around. Having one A-level is a bit like having a car with one wheel – pretty useless. So I ended up working on building sites.
Sean Lock
There are old people in San Francisco because my parents still live there. The young tech bros don’t see old people or children. The Mission district, where they live and work, they don’t see children or old people. That statement revealed, to me, the blinders that the techies are wearing.
Alexandra C. Pelosi
I went to Salford Tech. They did a two-year performing arts course. I went there singing and dancing – I had a terrible time. I turned up in green dungarees and German power boots. I was into prog rock at the time – Gong and Hawkwind – and I was clumping around.
Maxine Peake
The fashion sector is very hot in New York, especially the fashion tech sector, and a lot of women have been the leaders in the industry.
Aslaug Magnusdottir
The Chinese market is very different. One of the things

The Chinese market is very different. One of the things that I believe is that the biggest, hottest tech trend in China right now is O2O, or online-to-offline.
Andrew Ng
I was a technology reporter. And I think everybody who covers tech at some point or another feels like a little kid with their face pressed against the glass looking in at the candy shop and going, ‘Wow, it looks so cool and so much fun.’
Daniel Lyons
Internally, we’re focused on building our own technology, leveraging all the momentum that’s out there around wearable computing and mobile computing and PC computing. But at the end of the day, all the code we’ve written and all the invention we’ve created has been focused on our own tech and our own products.
Brendan Iribe
My products and magic are free, but on the commercial side of what I do, the big tech companies are impressed with somebody like me who can emotionalize a piece of technology.
Marco Tempest
We all remember the tech bubble of the late ’90s, but companies like Amazon survived. Wherever there’s strong, enduring value, it can last through that kind of turmoil.
Tim Sweeney
If women don’t participate in tech, with its massive prominence in our lives and society, we risk losing many of the economic, political, and social gains we have made over decades.
Susan Wojcicki
Tech companies approach you to hold something in a picture and then say, ‘This is what I want you to write on your Twitter.’ There are people who get away with that and look really cool doing it, but I’m just not one of them.
Alexa Chung
I was extremely curious growing up. I taught myself how to sew, French braid, and cook. When I wasn’t creating things with my hands, I was learning more about tech. I was experimenting with email at nine, had my first cell phone at 13, and was truly obsessed with the Internet as a teenager.
Brit Morin
The office-as-playground trend was made famous by Google and has spread like an infection across the tech industry. Work can’t just be work; work has to be fun.
Daniel Lyons
It’s an absurd world – you know, billionaires in Birkenstocks. But I’d rather have nerdy tech guys as the next Carnegie than oil tycoons.
Thomas Middleditch
The best tech companies are led by founders with entrepreneurial zeal and strong egos. They consistently deliver what we want and what we need, at prices that decrease over time. The Wall Street firm is a long-standing institution with a more established hierarchy.
Richard Edelman
Most of the tech CEOs I know used to think that moving to the Midwest or the South was beneath us, a good tactic for the Boeings of the world who don’t need the kind of rare skills we depend on, who have to grub for profits when we reach for growth. But if Amazon can’t afford to keep growing in Seattle, who can?
Glenn Kelman
I’m kind of a tech geek. With the camera work, I chose to shoot super 16, which has a real tactile feel. I feel it’s as authentic as possible; I love the way the grain feels.
Ryan Coogler
Kids and adults pay a price for too much tech, and it’s not wholesale.
Richard Louv
The belief that the law will never ‘catch up’ to technology is borne in part of tech exceptionalism, a libertarian elitism that derides any kind of legal or regulatory impediment as Luddism.
Sarah Jeong
State funds, private equity, venture capital, and institutional lending all have their role in the lifecycle of a high tech startup, but angel capital is crucial for first-time entrepreneurs. Angel investors provide more than just cash; they bring years of expertise as both founders of businesses and as seasoned investors.
Jay Samit
India has long been an exporter of talent to tech companies… But it is India that’s now undergoing its own revolution.
Sundar Pichai
My dad has never had a mobile phone or computer. And that was the way when I grew up, so I still take tech with a pinch of salt.
Freddie Fox
We want to teach girls of color the skills they need and create a diversity of voices into the tech community.
Kimberly Bryant
I’ve already begun to put pilot programs in place that give CUNY grads opportunities to get good tech jobs. We should expand on that so that New Yorkers are getting those jobs, because those jobs are probably one of the biggest 21st Century pathways into the middle class.
Christine Quinn
I am a Rambling Wreck from Georgia Tech.
Mark Zupan
The tech industry – and, more specifically, Silicon Valley – continues to stumble forward in earnest about how few women are represented in its top ranks of management and on its boards.
Kara Swisher
For all the advances in tech that let us try on various guises to play around with who we are, it seems that we just want new ways to be ourselves.
Jenna Wortham
David Lander and I met in September of 1965. We were both students at Carnegie Tech, as it was then known. Before the Mellon money came in.
Michael McKean
The fact is that our business is fundamentally really strong. We have a platform and a depth that no one in the tech industry has. This means we have competitors at every layer.
Safra A. Catz
I remember when New Labour got in. I was at Salford Tech studying drama, and everyone was jumping up and down, and I was so upset, I went to a phone box and called my granddad.
Maxine Peake
I don’t have a smart phone. I didn’t have one when I arrived in the U.S., and somehow life has continued. I teach at Stanford University, I launched a tech company – miraculously, it all seems to work without a phone!
Steve Hilton
So here we are today with a new conversation. When University of Georgia plays Georgia Tech, it’s uniform color versus skin color. We have – we’ve overcome that level of racial fear.
Jesse Jackson
I loved playing video games when I was younger, loved playing with Legos – the tech nerd, that was me for sure.
Doug Baldwin
So evidently music was a killer app and is a killer app for computer and the Internet; it just took the tech industry a long time to hear that message.
Thomas Dolby
I spent most of my career in hi tech, not in politics.
Naftali Bennett
Still, there may be technologies that are very useful i

Still, there may be technologies that are very useful in identifying people over the age of 18 because they have all kinds of identifying characteristics, while those same tech may be useless for 12- and 13-year-olds.
Richard Blumenthal
The best thing women in tech can do is to invest in other women.
Christine Tsai
The tech and tech media world are meritocracies. To fall back to race as the reason why people don’t break out in our wonderful oasis of openness is to do a massive injustice to what we’ve fought so hard to create.
Jason Calacanis
Ever since me and the brothers no longer make music together, I stepped aside, and I’ve been doubling down here in the tech world.
Kevin Jonas
We’ve got to make sure tech companies – all of them – aren’t taking steps that will place content beyond the reach of the courts.
Christopher A. Wray
The paradox is that Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, and all the tech giants are bigger fans of music than some of the executives working at major record companies.
Jean-Michel Jarre
Tech Jacket shares the same tone as Invincible, but the subject matter is very different. Where Invincible is about perfection, Tech Jacket is about flaws.
Robert Kirkman
I know this golf tournament has my name on it but it’s not about me. It’s about the Louisiana Tech family. There is nothing greater than being a part of the Bulldog family.
Terry Bradshaw
I’ve enjoyed my time at Georgia Tech and feel my year here has helped my development as a player.
Derrick Favors
I’m a poster child for Luddites. It was a challenge for me to open myself up the tech world.
Julia Butterfly Hill
Everyone in the tech business, from Kleiner Perkins venture capitalist John Doerr on down, says that the ruination of the industry, if not the entire country, will come from the inability to hire more brainiacs from countries like China and India.
Steven Levy
Integrating breakthrough technology into everyday products is always a challenge; at the same time, this is exactly how design makes tech products easily adoptable in life.
Yves Behar
Sometimes I speak out on women in tech issues.
Brianna Wu
The only thing that scares me in the tech area is that it moves so fast that you have to be ready to invest in 20 things. Because if you just invest in one, next week, somebody has a better mousetrap, and you get taken to the cleaners.
Daymond John
In a well-run tech company, small, elite groups who have ownership in the company are given the freedom to define and achieve their tasks in line with a broader mission that they have internalized as their own.
Joe Lonsdale
The rush into scripted video by tech giants is going to accelerate an evolution of entertainment that’s already underway. We’re already moving away from the idea that drama is a 60-minute exercise with four bathroom breaks.
Steven Levy
I believe tech should be a core skill of a tech company.
Michael Seibel
I think it’s the responsibility of people in tech to find solutions.
Shervin Pishevar
I come from a theatre group called Drama Tech in Delhi. When its founder Mr. Chopra called me and appreciated my work, that was also satisfying because he gave me my first play.
Aparshakti Khurana
I think Wall Street is very important, especially to tech companies. Wall Street will get in their rhythm and go fund tech companies, and tech companies will go create jobs and employ a lot of people, so there’s that aspect of Wall Street.
Daymond John
I want to qualify for the Tour Championship. Being a Georgia Tech grad, playing at East Lake would feel like home.
Matt Kuchar
If you go back to the ’50s and ’60s… there was zero tech in S.F. It was all in the Valley… and it crept northward in early 2000s.
Mitch Kapor
When people criticize the computer generation, the high tech generation, and say they neglect the body – well, just walk through a college campus, and you’ll see the healthiest, most physically conscious and alert group of human beings I’ve ever met. So they’re not nerds at all.
Timothy Leary
Browbeating the tech industry for a problem that does not exist also draws attention away from the real problems with Google and other tech companies.
Mazie Hirono
I feel like I’ve forcefully been thrust into the tech world, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
T. J. Miller
There is an often-told story that Silicon Valley is filled with women looking to cash in by marrying wealthy tech moguls. Whether there really is a significant number of such women is debatable.
Emily Chang
No one in tech has ever been as sexist toward me as teachers and rabbis before I was 12 years old.
Naomi Alderman
I think the tech stock, the public market is still completely traumatized by the dotcom crash. I think the investors and reporters and analysts and everybody is determined to not get taken advantage of again, and that is what everybody who lived through 2000, what they kind of remember.
Marc Andreessen
Technology could benefit or hurt people, so the usage of tech is the responsibility of humanity as a whole, not just the discoverer. I am a person before I’m an AI technologist.
Fei-Fei Li
What people don’t consider is that tech is a really personal purchase. You spend so much time using it.
Marques Brownlee
Millennials’ tech and global savvy will make them instrumental in shaping our mobile future worldwide.
Brad D. Smith
No longer are technology and cyber issues confined to t

No longer are technology and cyber issues confined to tech geeks in some backroom. In the digital age, IT issues are front and center. They are central to what government does and how it does it.
Will Hurd
I was a child of a tech family. My grandfather was a nuclear physicist and was always a gadget guy.
Felicia Day
It’s easy to lose the humanity when you start showcasing tech.
Chris Milk
A lot of tech people are afraid to get on the phone and talk to their customers, or get on Zoom, or whatever. But I think a great place to start is just be calling your customers all the time.
Justin Kan
It was a very big decision when I decided to leave B. Tech to come to Mumbai. But they were always supportive. At one point, I felt I shouldn’t do it. My mother encouraged me then.
Disha Patani
Minorities often feel like they are on the outside looking in when it comes to the Valley and tech start-ups in general.
Michael Seibel
I like video games, I like tech, I like being positive.
Jimmy Fallon
I’ve had the opportunity to experience firsthand how tech companies can help people in their daily lives.
Ruth Porat
We are the only country with an operating rover on Mars. We are an amazing country on tech.
Megan Smith
This is Massachusetts, we’re supposed to be one of the tech centers of the world. We have MIT within walking distance of the state house.
Charlie Baker
We have some material on spying by a major government on the tech industry. Industrial espionage.
Julian Assange
I was lucky. I got university degrees and had a successful tech and finance career. But many of my generation weren’t.
Kemi Badenoch
You know, my degrees are in computer engineering. I spent a lot of time in the tech industry. And I like to say that I don’t invest in tech because I spent time in it. And I saw firsthand that the durability of technology moats is many times an oxymoron.
Mohnish Pabrai
Securing and attracting the best talent is an obsession in the tech industry for good reason. It’s your main asset; it’s your edge.
Taavet Hinrikus
We’re going to need a new social contract with the tech world one that asks for consent, and one with transparent goals. Right now, the goals of technology are not aligned with our goals as humans. We need technology that empowers us to make the life choices we want to make.
Tristan Harris
One goal for Silicon Valley must be to redouble our collective efforts to make sure people of all backgrounds are aware of opportunities in tech.
Stacy Brown-Philpot
Why is UCLA and Georgia Tech in China to play a basketball game? Missing all that school, and then force-feeding their fans the idea of ‘student-athletes.’
Jeff Van Gundy
Don’t be afraid to learn on the job. No matter how much preparation you’ve done, the tech industry is changing so fast that we’re all learning every day.
Marne Levine
If you think having a tech job is the answer to all your problems, think again.
Sarah Cooper
You absolutely cannot be big time tech guy without attending Burning Man.
Sarah Cooper
I know about the tech industry in that I follow what apps are hot and software development. I know my way around different browsers. I know how to restart a computer.
T. J. Miller
Silicon Valley isn’t the only game in town. Tech is increasingly decentralized. Around the world, new tech centers with younger companies are able to embrace a different approach to talent: recruit locally, identify homegrown prospects and, in a phrase, bring them along for the ride.
Ryan Holmes
I got lucky because my dad moved us to Silicon Valley before it really was known worldwide as an important tech hub.
Robert Scoble
Tech stuff, I will always do. They’ve been good to me.
Andre Iguodala
It isn’t citizens, or Congress, who decide how our information network regulates itself. We don’t get to decide how information companies collect data, and we don’t get to decide how transparent they should be. The tech companies do that all by themselves.
Anne Applebaum
I love throwing down the gauntlet and trying our hand at that new tech.
Hidetaka Miyazaki
I don’t know anything about tech, but I do know something about slightly socially crippled and overly cerebral guys.
Zach Woods
In tech communities, we consider disruption the way to lead to innovation.
Ayanna Pressley
Working 90 hours a week is easily racked up when you’re self-employed and rely on portable tech to do your work; your train journeys, toilet breaks, leisurely walks, bedtime, can all become ‘working hours’. Reclaim them.
Jack Monroe
If you black out the background in AR, you could make an immersive VR experience, and if you make the view translucent so you can see through it, you just have an augmented view of the real world. I think that’s the ultimate and best form of display tech we’ll have.
Tim Sweeney
I built a lot of stuff as a kid. But I was not interested in tech, I thought it wasn’t really for me.
Simone Giertz
History suggests the 2010s will give rise to a super-un

History suggests the 2010s will give rise to a super-unicorn or two that reflect the key tech wave of the decade, the mobile web.
Aileen Lee
Being a female head of a successful tech company means that I’m in a pretty niche category.
Julia Hartz
I suppose my professional life can be split into writing books that all sound like infomercial products, most notably ‘The 4-Hour Workweek,’ and then tech investing.
Tim Ferriss
I want to bring a Big 12 championship to Tech.
Patrick Mahomes
At Square, we got our tech up and running in three weeks, but it took us 18 months to get licenses, banking relationships and everything else we needed to be able to move money. We had to partner up with major companies to do it.
Jim McKelvey
I’ve always loved tech. Loved Apple. That’s what I started vlogging about.
Before comedy, I worked at a tech company, and before that, I worked on Wall Street. And, honestly, I’ve never really been sexually harassed.
Michelle Wolf
For tech, I like the ‘DailySearchCast’, ‘TWiT’ and anything Veronica Belmont does on CNET. I think Perez Hilton is a riot, and the rest of my consumption is by people: Folks like Dave Winer, Fred Wilson, Mark Cuban, Brian Alvey, Jeff Jarvis, Xeni Jardin, etc.
Jason Calacanis
I’d like to make an album with Slack one day. I’d like to use it as a collaborative tool. I know about it because I have friends that work in tech, and I guess you can use it in any job.
Rostam Batmanglij
I usually float between the tech and the business sides of the office.
Justin Kan
I used to do tech support for MSN in Canada.
Cory Monteith
Internet-centric companies have already begun changing the rules with binge-watching, flexible running times, fewer commercials, and crowd-sourced content. The brainpower – and just plain power – of the most valued tech firms will change things even more.
Steven Levy
Out of grad school, I worked as a tech writer for a while before going into computer coding for a living.
Richard Powers
There’ve been lots of positive changes in the city since I worked at Salford Tech in the seventies, and I’m pleased to be known as Salford’s Bard and to have helped put it on the map.
John Cooper Clarke
Skype is easy enough to use so that people don’t need to be tech savvy – a lot of users just want to communicate with their friends and family, and they find this is the easiest, cheapest way. If you can use a Web browser, you can use Skype.
Niklas Zennstrom
Net neutrality is a concept that the tech industry rallies around, but it is hypocrisy.
Dave Winer
I want to help bring tech jobs to middle America and help us create more innovation clusters.
Ro Khanna
We are looking for a technology partner, as India is way behind the world as far as tech goes.
Subhash Chandra
I think the next big thing in music, and it’s kind of because I come from the tech industry, is actually, I think it’s the platform… Spotify is incredibly interesting. I think the platform is becoming the star.
Brian Chesky
I’ve always had a passion for the tech industry, and I like to help build interesting products.
Kevin Jonas
Those companies that don’t see the black and brown communities are missing, out of their closed eye, talent, which leads to money and growth. When baseball, football and basketball couldn’t see the field, they missed talent and growth. The same is true in the tech industry.
Jesse Jackson
When you start over and jump into new tech, you don’t know what the negatives are going to be until you go through a few cycles. We’re always changing our tech, but we don’t wholly destroy it with each game. We’re taking parts out.
Todd Howard
I can’t apply $3 billion in capital to the tech industry. It wouldn’t work. But in infrastructure, education, I can make a real difference. I can change someone’s life, for the better, permanently. If I can improve a kid’s education, I can increase their salary later on and for decades.
Dustin Moskovitz
I work in the tech industry and my husband works in biotech. He’s head of IP for a company listed on the NASDAQ. And we have a lot of discussions in tech and biotech about the role of unionization in our industries.
Brianna Wu
Shutterstock has the tech ethos. Rex has the relationships, packaging, and merchandising know-how.
Jon Oringer
Space investing looks a lot like tech investing.
Sunil Nagaraj
I guess I always had made some assumptions about what it would be like to work in a tech company, and some were right, and some were wrong. I had a lot of, looking back on it, now naive ideas about how companies build their brands, and a lot of those notions I ended up realizing were kind of wrong.
Daniel Lyons
Emotion AI will be ingrained in the technologies we use every day, running in the background, making our tech interactions more personalized, relevant, authentic, and interactive.
Rana el Kaliouby
Because of the way tech is changing, and becoming cheaper and user-friendly, it’s becoming easier to make films cheaply, maintaining quality.
Lance Reddick
Oftentimes in tech, people think, ‘I’m the only one that has this.’ I call them the Atlas People. They’re like, ‘The weight of the world is on the shoulders. I’m the only person who can solve this problem.’ But you can’t do that.
Harper Reed
Without grounding, it’s easy to embrace the ‘baller’ lifestyle: dropping out of tech, throwing money at cars, boats and real estate, and slipping into a cycle of spending and indulgence.
Ryan Holmes
My mom was a teacher. In the 1960s and '70s, she taught

My mom was a teacher. In the 1960s and ’70s, she taught history at two largely African American public high schools in Washington, D.C. – McKinley Tech and H.D. Woodson. Her example taught me the importance of equality for all Americans.
Brett Kavanaugh
The tech industry used to be home to a disproportionate number of misfits and weirdos. Geeks. Nerds. People who needed to know how machines worked: needed to take them apart, make them better, and put them back together again.
Jon Evans
What the tech industry often forgets is that with age comes wisdom. Older workers are usually better at following direction, mentoring, and leading.
Vivek Wadhwa
I remember flying in, driving down 101 in a cab, and passing by all these tech companies like Yahoo! I remember thinking, ‘Maybe someday we’ll build a company. This probably isn’t it, but one day we will.’
Mark Zuckerberg
Film has lost something in the translation to high tech. It’s become so super-real. It’s with digital this and stereo that, and everything’s like a CD.
Nicolas Cage
History is replete with examples of tech firms that were marginalized by new companies and technologies.
Barry Ritholtz
Competition in the American tech sector is being gobbled up by the largest players, and it’s threatening our entire industry.
Brianna Wu
I have no people reporting to me and don’t expect to. My competency is in the tech realm.
Anders Hejlsberg
Political oppositionary activity on the Russian Internet caused the government to pass laws limiting both service operators and users. As a result, the Russian tech environment became much less liberal, losing freedom as one of its competitive advantages.
Pavel Durov
I think it’s a competitive advantage that both Amazon and Google and other tech companies have over a lot of their counterparts. They take big risks and are pioneering new markets with the promise of big rewards. It’s why Amazon is kind of reliably starting new businesses and opening kind of new frontiers.
Brad Stone
I think ‘Shark Tank’ is targeting companies that are really trying to raise their very first dollar. A lot of them aren’t really tech focused. We’re definitely going after companies that are building real technology, either software or hardware, they probably have raised a couple hundred thousand already.
Dave McClure
I think, particularly in our tech industry, this is an industry that has violent innovation and then commoditization, and it’s a cycle of innovation/commoditization.
Ginni Rometty
Georgia Tech beat us and Mississippi Southern tied us last year, and Texas beat us after we had the game won. We only played about five games the way we were capable of playing and lost one of those.
Bear Bryant
I felt that I didn’t get a fair chance at Texas Tech to compete, for an assortment of reasons, but reasons I couldn’t really control.
Davis Webb
I think we choose gear by the way that it looks. We choose lots of things by the way that it looks. I don’t like bands that look like roadies. I don’t like when I can’t tell who’s the guitar tech and who’s the guitar player.
Alison Mosshart
We’re excited about how tech can be used to get tech out of the way.
Astro Teller
As I see it, tech in Africa 1.0 was the mobile-phone boom, and version 2.0 was about new apps developed in response to local needs. Tech in Africa 3.0 should be about those who are successful in transforming the chatter into real opportunities.
Ory Okolloh
I love doing all the tech videos, especially unboxings. That’s usually my initial reaction to everything: I’m super excited, so getting to unbox a new gadget, so it’s so exciting!
Paul Otellini, the former CEO of Intel, I worked with while I was still with VMware. I knew Ram Shriram through the tech industry.
Diane Greene
While shooting ‘Selma,’ I would train on my off time with the assistant men’s track and field coach at Georgia Tech.
Stephan James
I studied acting at Carnegie Tech in Pittsburgh because I figured a good comedian certainly could act.
Albert Brooks
The tech industry has a strong bias towards technical solutions to social problems.
Brianna Wu
Tech companies tend to do tech best.
Sam Altman
Many tech company execs who visit to pitch products take time to peruse the shelves and exclaim upon various devices they owned in younger days.
Walt Mossberg
The tech genie is out of the bottle; you can’t put it back in.
Gavin Newsom
I’m a strong proponent of green tech for anyone who can afford it, having spent the last 40 years working toward achieving a smaller and smaller eco-impact for myself.
Ed Begley, Jr.
The music industry really has to learn a lesson from the tech industry about what scale means at the end of the day and learning how to monetize.
Troy Carter
Clearly communicate your project: Imagine explaining it to someone not familiar with tech.
Sunil Nagaraj
Perhaps the most damaging aspect of the Obamacare tech nightmare is how wholly predictable it all was. Anyone who has been involved in building the most rudimentary of web operations knows nothing ever works as it’s supposed to. Even awesome Apple, mighty Microsoft, and gargantuan Google miss deadlines.
Tina Brown
Honestly, I’m not so much of a tech guy.
Michael Bastian
I read Google News and use NetNewsWire to keep up with general and tech news.
Steve Wozniak
I'm really interested in the current tech world because

I’m really interested in the current tech world because of my brother Michael. Since we were little kids, in the 1970s, he was dealing with the first computers. He works for the government.
Jimmi Simpson
I love technology. Matches, to light a fire, is really high tech. The wheel is really one of the great inventions of all time. Other than that, I am an ignoramus about technology.
William Shatner
ISIS’ key social media-encrypted platform is Telegram, which is engineered by a Berlin-based tech company that can simply ignore the rulings of American federal judges as well as legislation passed by the U.S. Congress.
Peter Bergen
I think if you’re out there trying to raise capital, and you’re a woman, and you’re in tech, I think what you need to do is find people to work with who know you and believe in you.
Julie Wainwright
I never felt any issues whatsoever about being a woman in Tech.
Gwynne Shotwell
Within tech, there’s a subgroup of people that are pro crypto and pro blockchain. That’s a very, very robust network and they’re awesome.
Francis X. Suarez
I don’t want a tech. I don’t want to get one.
Mike Conley Jr.
Recognizing that female participation in technology is lower than it should be, we are committed to bolstering female tech talent, eliminating obstacles and challenges they face, and fostering diversity.
Gillian Tans
It’s weird; my fascination with tech was kind of combined with the fact that my parents would never pay for anything. It got me more involved because I would have to find clever ways to get things for free.
Sam Esmail
In many ways I just did not fit the mold of a 1970s high tech innovator. I was not white, I was not working for the military or for a defense contractor, and I must have seemed too young and too naive to stand up for the truth.
Shiva Ayyadurai
Once my ears were open to hearing mentions of ‘Shark Tank’, I was surprised by how many people in our world, even in our industry, tech and finance, loved the show.
Chris Sacca
If I understood the great opportunities that are available to women and underrepresented minorities in the field of tech I would have made the transition from traditional engineering to the technology field much earlier in my career.
Kimberly Bryant
I love Silicon Valley, but there is a dominant voice of, ‘Tech is cool. Tech is geeky. Tech is a guy with a hoodie.’
Fei-Fei Li
My dream is to build a tech company that helps people discover content.
Nuseir Yassin
I absolutely support President Trump 100 percent, and he inspired me to run. I got frustrated throughout his presidency watching Big Tech censor conservatives, so I’ll be fighting back on that, because everyone has the freedom of speech.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
People in startup-land live inside it. They see themselves as really good people even when they’re doing something that’s very bad. There’s a huge disconnect from reality in the tech world.
Daniel Lyons
One phrase we use at Stripe is, ‘Most tech companies are building cars. Stripe is building roads.’
Patrick Collison
You don’t need to be an engineer or a tech person to benefit from technology. You can hire them.
Jay Samit
Tech is a funny industry; I don’t think there is any other industry on the planet that reinvents itself every 10-12 years.
Edward Zander
If we really wanted to have a reorientation of the tech industry toward what’s best for people, then we would ask the second question, which is, what would be the most time well spent for the thing that people are trying to get out of that situation?
Tristan Harris
A conservative vision to tech issues assumes the imperfection of mankind and a preference for markets – not politics – to drive outcomes.
Marsha Blackburn
We owe it to players, young and old, to train them thoroughly so that they can take full advantage of the insights that tech offers them. And what is true in sport also applies more widely to business.
James Haskell
The fact that women represent such a small portion of the tech workforce shouldn’t just be a wake-up call – it should be a Sputnik moment. The tech industry is not America’s future; it is our present.
Susan Wojcicki
What I learned with tech companies is I gotta give people room to experiment, and also to make what might later on be a mistake. This is the attitude I want to build within San Francisco – give some time to the tech community.
Ed Lee
There is a science to managing high tech businesses, and it needs to be respected. One of them is that in technology businesses, leadership is temporary. It’s constantly recycling. So the asset has limited lifetime.
Eric Schmidt
Today in America, we are trying to prepare students for a high tech world of constant change, but we are doing so by putting them through a school system designed in the early 20th Century that has not seen substantial change in 30 years.
Janet Napolitano
Normally, if you have a huge category that leads a bear market all the way down to the bottom – like tech after 2000, or energy in the ’80-’82 bear market – you get one quick pop, and then years of lag as we fight the old war.
Kenneth Fisher
Long story short: I didn’t start out thinking I’d be a tech entrepreneur.
Marc Randolph
One of the cool things we’re seeing at TaskRabbit is local tech and gaming startups hiring TaskRabbits to test their products and deliver immediate user feedback. As the founder of a tech startup, I can tell you that this type of focus group testing is paramount – and usually really pricey and difficult to coordinate.
Leah Busque
I had no idea what it would be like to be a bomb tech in Baghdad until I got there so I didn’t know what to expect. It was very eye-opening.
Mark Boal
Net neutrality rules ensure an equal playing field on the web for everyone, from the start-up to the tech giant.
Ro Khanna
Libraries have a PR problem - or at least that's what t

Libraries have a PR problem – or at least that’s what they call it when no one under the age of 40 walks through the door. To bring in a younger crowd, the paper pushers have turned to tech to bring in the public. DVDs, CDs and, yes, even videogames are hitting the shelves of your local library.
Rob Manuel
In 1996, we go on the road and there would be a couple of hundred people around the desk. It just kept growing and growing. I think the year it changed was when Michael Vick was at Virginia Tech and Frank Beamer was the first coach to recognize the benefit of having College GameDay come to your campus.
Kirk Herbstreit
I’ve got a full plate, yes I do. That iPod, that’s nice. A phone recorder? Nicely done. All right I’m a bit of a tech geek. I have a subscription to Popular Science and I keep up on all this stuff.
Nathan Fillion
It’s often taken for granted that the most dominant tech companies control the world’s most important technology and communications platforms. Instead, the truth is that these giants run on top of the world’s most important platform: the mobile communications networks.
Borje Ekholm
Why can’t modern tech companies both grow and turn a profit at the same time?
Daniel Lyons
I’m ambivalent about tech.
Georgina Campbell
I’ve always wanted to get involved in the tech industry, but hadn’t come across anything that really clicked for me.
Khloe Kardashian
What many single male 23-year-old entrepreneurs don’t realize is that family tech is a ‘big freaking business’. As in, trillions of dollars.
Christine Tsai
I remember bumming rides across town to Georgia Tech, trying to get myself registered, trying to apply for financial aid, trying to get their coaches to watch my film.
Nick Ferguson
The tech titans and the tech guys who I most admire are the ones behind the scenes.
Andre Iguodala
Seattle was hardly a tech magnet before Amazon, Microsoft, and then a host of once-fledgling technology firms set up operations there.
James B. Stewart
I remember loving food tech because of the precision and the creativity, the weights and measures, the tiny glimpses of flavour.
Jack Monroe
None of most powerful tech companies answer to what’s best for people, only to what’s best for them.
Tristan Harris
I guess for me, I keep saying the words ‘consumer electronics,’ ‘consumer tech’ – the biggest purchase decisions people make a lot of times are the phones they buy and the tech they buy. To be able to influence other people’s decisions on that front is pretty game changing.
Marques Brownlee
When I went into a start-up in tech, I knew I could always go back to a law firm.
Belinda Johnson
I prefer unplugged forms of music any day to tech sounds.
Rahat Fateh Ali Khan
By describing the origins of the coronavirus as a conspiracy theory and placing it right beside Sandy Hook trutherism. The left, the mainstream media, big tech, they shut down honest questions and good journalism, and in the process they shut down the truth.
Will Cain
I’ve spent a career working in tech as a software engineer. And I believe regulated markets are the best way to build and deliver innovative products.
Brianna Wu
It suddenly occurred to me that the hottest tech startups are solving all the problems of being 20 years old, with cash on hand, because that’s who thinks them up.
George Packer
IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I’m far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read ‘Tech Crunch,’ ‘Ad Age.’ I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.
Gary Vaynerchuk
If Trump publicly commits to embrace science, stops threatening censorship of the Internet, rejects fake news and denounces hate against our diverse employees, only then it would make sense for tech leaders to visit Trump Tower.
Chris Sacca
In the tech world, you can reel off great products in several ways. You can have the once-in-a-lifetime gut instincts of a Steve Jobs. You can have the brainiac coding skills of a Bill Gates, Larry Page, or Sergey Brin. Or, I learned, you can have the deep intellectual curiosity and stubbornness of a Jeff Bezos.
Walt Mossberg
We’re creating this new breed of techies who are going to be the ones starting the tech companies of the future.
Kimberly Bryant
If you look at how much information you put out, even just on your phone, on Facebook, on Google, whatever, you essentially create a clone of yourself online. And that’s at the disposal of these large American tech companies.
Christopher Wylie
Given my venture capital background, I know the tech sector well.
Bruce Rauner
I’m consumed with tech – medical, computational, impossible tech. So, I don’t know exactly what I’ll wind up doing, where I’ll go with all this schooling, but I’m willing that it be better than my dogmatic vision of it all.
Justine Bateman
I think fashion is actually very good training for being in the tech world, because it’s all about moving on to the next thing, looking for the next thing, not getting stuck in the past.
Natalie Massenet
The reality is that unless you understand the regulatory environment and payment structure, you can’t revolutionize it. I think most tech companies and startups have come to this realization: that you have to partner with people in the ecosystem.
Sandra E. Peterson
I played with different words like ‘home run,’ ‘megahit,’ and they just all sounded kind of ‘blah.’ So I put in ‘unicorn’ because they are – these are very rare companies in the sense that there are thousands of startups in tech every year, and only a handful will wind up becoming a unicorn company. They’re really rare.
Aileen Lee
The game in beauty is changing so much, if your product isn’t high tech or can’t make a unique performance claim – plump your lips, reduce your lines, look glossy, and stay on for 24 hours – you can’t go to market today. I’m not just talking about a $20 lipstick, but a $5 lipstick!
Andrea Jung
Apple, of all the global tech companies, was the one that understood why artists make things.
Jimmy Iovine
It's strange that we create tech and then we apply it t

It’s strange that we create tech and then we apply it to machines, when we could apply it to ourselves. Cars can now detect if something is behind them, but we don’t have this ability. Why are we applying such a simple sense to a car when we could apply it to ourselves?
Neil Harbisson
We might enjoy essays, TED talks, and even Facebook posts bemoaning our dependency on tech, but judging by our enthusiastic adoption of these services, we’re all in.
Steven Levy
It only makes sense that as our society becomes more and more integrated with technology, we’ll start to see more cyborgs, grinders, biohackers – whatever you want to call us – thriving at the intersection of tech and body modification.
Zoe Quinn
Oscar Niemeyer really inspired me. He’s from South America, where nature has meaning. And his architecture was not expensive or high tech but artistic and spiritual. I like that.
Ma Yansong
It’s no secret that in our society, and many before, people are trend followers. For some reason, they feel better about themselves if they are dressed in the latest fashion or have the newest tech gadget.
Victoria Osteen
The widespread assumption is that somehow, the brain produces the mind; somehow millions of neurons fire signals at one another create or produce consciousness… but we have no idea how or why this happens. I’m afraid that in many cases, people in the tech world fail to understand that.
Yuval Noah Harari
A lot of young girls don’t realise how diverse the career opportunities are in games development. Many think that you need elite math skills and a vast knowledge of all things tech to work in games, and haven’t thought about avenues like design, producing, art, writing or composing.
Rhianna Pratchett
The tech world is not a new phenomenon; it’s a new era.
Boots Riley
My job is to be tech entrepreneur-in-residence at the White House.
Todd Park
The podcast ‘Note to Self’ is ‘the tech show about being human’. Human notions of privacy have changed.
David Hepworth
Even when the nation’s leaders acknowledge tech issues, details are lacking.
Brianna Wu
High tech is for a short time. But art is forever. People still admire a Picasso or a Van Gogh. But they don’t admire the steam locomotive anymore.
Barry Lam
Producing fuel cells and solar panels requires high tech facilities and produces high paying jobs. The industry is booming in Arizona. The state already has about 100 firms in the solar industry and has grown 20% since 2003.
J. D. Hayworth
Starting a company in San Francisco when we did usually meant it was destined to be a data-driven tech company. But that didn’t seem to fully encompass what we wanted with Airbnb. When we tried looking through a tech lens, it didn’t work. The humanity was missing.
Joe Gebbia
There is a lot of risk in the tech sector.
Lou Jiwei
Engineering talent is the most precious resource for any technology company – Palantir and Addepar are successful first and foremost because of their top tech cultures, and the same is true for our best portfolio companies at 8VC.
Joe Lonsdale
It’s important to be an ally. You don’t have to be a black woman to think we should have more black women in tech.
Bozoma Saint John
I went to Louisiana Tech, which is just down the road from where we lived. It was an easy college to get into.
Jeff Mangum
What’s amazing is everyone knows who Spider-Man is. We were filming in a Chicano community and standing side by side were a Cal Tech lab technician and a six-year-old boy, and both of them were in awe of the character. In fact, you might say he’s an equal opportunity fantasy hero.
Nicholas Hammond
I’m a woman in technology, I think that we have to consider our border and use the technology we have to be sure that we secure it. If you build a six foot wall, somebody may jump eight feet. But, maybe there’s surveillance… there’s many high tech things that we can use to be sure we are protecting our borders.
Jacky Rosen
I’m not as tech savvy as some YouTubers, but I’m a lot better than my grandparents. Whenever I have a technical question, or something isn’t working, I ask Google, and that usually throws up the answer.
Zoe Sugg
I’ve never thought of myself as a female engineer or founder or a woman in tech. I just think of myself as someone who’s passionate.
Leah Busque
Ultimately, I don’t think even a five-company platform oligopoly is good for consumer tech. By its very nature, it handicaps independent companies with new ideas. But it will end one day. I just don’t know when.
Walt Mossberg
As a tech optimist, I believe productivity woes can be solved through cleverly imagined and implemented technology.
Caroline Ghosn
Tech companies have a finite lifespan: For the successful ones, an IPO or exit is never more than a few years off. But by recruiting locally and developing homegrown talent, companies can build something that remains after they’re gone. People, skills and a culture of innovation persist.
Ryan Holmes
We understand bringing girls into the tech space is about giving them skills to create social impact and change in their community.
Kimberly Bryant
Obama will win the 2012 election, thanks in part to the tech community rallying behind him due to issues like SOPA, visas, and free speech.
John Battelle
Though we do need more women to graduate with technical degrees, I always like to remind women that you don’t need to have science or technology degrees to build a career in tech.
Susan Wojcicki
One of the issues we face here in San Francisco and Silicon Valley is a sense that the people all around us are as conversant in startup and tech culture as we are. But we need to remember, and remind ourselves repeatedly, that we’re a small minority in a larger population.
Caterina Fake
Most buildings, whether they’re Gothic cathedrals or Romanesque ones, were high tech for their time.
Richard Rogers
Facebook, Google, YouTube, even Snapchat are clamping down on conservatives. It’s the DNC and Big Tech colluding. That is the government colluding with big business. That is not America, that’s not the West – that is Communism, and it’s morally wrong.
Gavin McInnes
Immigrants play a huge role in the founding and value c

Immigrants play a huge role in the founding and value creation of today’s tech companies. We wonder how much more value could be created if it were easier to get a work visa.
Aileen Lee
Facebook is not a company of grass-roots tech enthusiasts. Facebook is not a game tech company. Facebook has a history of caring about building user numbers, and nothing but building user numbers.
Markus Persson
On the tech side, little start-ups can do something magnificent. They don’t need too much in terms of plants and infrastructure.
Hamdi Ulukaya
We’re pretty broad as investors. Our thesis is work with great entrepreneurs that believe they can change the world. But there are specific areas that we get excited about – areas like hard tech, deep tech, companies that deal with really difficult technology, etc.
David Cohen
There were definitely auditions and even bookings and jobs where I played your typical Asian model minority: an IT tech guy or something of that nature. It’s tough sometimes, especially when you’re starting out, because they make these roles sound as if they won’t be a typical nerd.
Manny Jacinto
I plan on suing all of the Left wing terrorists and tech tyrants who are trying to shut me down simply because I am a Conservative Jewish woman who speaks truth about Islam.
Laura Loomer
I knew tech was going to be increasingly important in my lifetime, so I focused on it early.
Robert Scoble
A chart that weighs some ad-supported streams the same as a pay stream… encourages artists to promote free tiers to have a No. 1 record. That’s great for the tech companies, but not for artists.
Jimmy Iovine
The jobs of tomorrow are high tech and high skill.
Mike Parson
My family know not to get me any tech for Christmas. I can never get it to work, and it all becomes very tearful and pressurised.
Peter Capaldi
I know I wore number 70 in high school, and then when I got to Virginia Tech, I decided to go with the No. 78, and from that point, I just fell in love with and I wanted to make that number special.
Bruce Smith
As I’ve traveled the country, we visit tech incubators all the time where women are going into their second or third act in their career and learning how to be software programmers, or how to work at startup companies, and learning a completely different skill set. I think it’s never too late.
Reshma Saujani
Make sure you have a clear understanding of your values and intent, then use technology to enable that. What the tech won’t do is compensate for a lack of strategy.
Dylan Taylor
Tech innovation is something societies have to pursue as vigorously as they can. We have to innovate civically and socially at the same rate; otherwise, you create unfortunate disruptions, and that’s where you have people opposing technological innovations.
Nick Hanauer
I probably shouldn’t admit this since I work in the tech industry, but I still prefer reading paper books.
Sheryl Sandberg
The way we’ll get more jobs is by creating new industries, new companies, businesses that are higher tech and therefore can compete.
Wilbur Ross
I’m a bit of a tech geek myself.
William Landay
I love technology. I have my iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and Mac laptop. Because I love technology, I think if I were not at the NBA, I would try to be part of a tech startup company.
Adam Silver
A lot of the foundational philosophical approaches of tech leaders are actually all about decentralization of power.
Steve Hilton
The ‘indistinguishable from magic’ thing is highly dependent on where a viewer is looking from and not something intrinsic to any particular sort of tech.
Ann Leckie
I want my work at Google to have a long-term impact on the tech scene in Africa and to result in millions more Africans not just going online but having an amazing experience once they do. That’s what drives me every single day when I get to work.
Ory Okolloh
Cities like Miami, we’re trying to attract tech town. It’s part of a larger play if you will to position Miami as one of the most tech-forward cities in the country.
Francis X. Suarez
There are some people that are trying to cure death, this tech immortality… That seems mentally ill.
Phil Elverum
My daughter was 10 years old when she told me she hated computers. As someone who has spent her career helping build one of the largest tech companies in the world, I was in shock. Suddenly an issue I faced repeatedly at work – the lack of women in tech – hit squarely at home.
Susan Wojcicki
People in tech love to see their work as embodying the ‘hacker ethos’: a desire to break systems down in order to change them. But this pride can often be conveyed rather clumsily.
Jenna Wortham
My big lesson from Gamergate is asking the men in charge to do the right thing does not work. So we need women, we need people of color in positions of power not just in the game industry but at social media and tech companies and in Congress.
Brianna Wu
With most tech guys, it’s the same outfit every day – they wear their company logo.
Tony Fadell
If a tech journalist needs financial security before doing what their conscience dictates, I’m not sure they should be calling themselves journalists at all.
Michael Arrington
The best thing about going to a tech conference is that you can tell everyone you’re going to a tech conference. But while you’re there, it’s important you make a smart impression so people will remember you, or at least wait a few days before throwing away your business card.
Sarah Cooper
We don’t know what the next generation of art is going to look like. We’re kind of making it up as we go along. Not unlike the tech industry.
Hasan M. Elahi
Tech companies don’t exist in a bubble; they draw from and feed into a larger community. Ideally, the relationship is symbiotic.
Ryan Holmes
The reason why I'm sending my super-intellectual 12-yea

The reason why I’m sending my super-intellectual 12-year old kid to tech school is because I don’t believe he would succeed in this world unless he first learned to work with his hands.
Casey Neistat
Tech companies are distracting, dividing and outraging citizens to the point where there is little basis for common ground. This is a direct threat to democracy.
Tristan Harris
Most redditors are at least college educated. A number of them have post- or, rather, graduate degrees. A number of them are in the IT tech world.
Alexis Ohanian
They can shout down the head of the physics department at Cal Tech.
James Stockdale
As a firm believer in the power of songwriting, I feel privileged to be part of a team that continues to help us all understand the true force and impact of lyrics and music around the world. Genius is special – it’s remixing the digital playbook and owning a new space in music and tech.
Steve Stoute
I first started in tech when one of my friends and I decided it was a good opportunity to start a company while we were in school because we had almost no opportunity cost. Our opportunity cost was playing ‘World of Warcraft’ and drinking beer. We thought it was a good time to try something.
Justin Kan
Technology does more than delight, entertain and make our lives more convenient, it’s also an agent for social good. That is why it’s important for tech startups to stay informed about, and make a mark on, policies that impact them.
Ron Conway
I actually really like DJ Assault – a Detroit a ghetto tech DJ, who’s produced good music that’s influenced me a bit.
Dizzee Rascal
IT is now reaching out to fuels and chemicals, energy and clean tech, rockets, all kinds of bizarre industries that formerly didn’t face much competition.
Steve Jurvetson
As the novelty of wearable tech gives way to necessity – and, later, as wearable tech becomes embedded tech – will we be deprived of the chance to pause, reflect, and engage in meaningful, substantive conversations? How will our inner lives and ties to those around us change?
Klaus Schwab
I’m not one of those playwrights who says, ‘Show up, hit your marks, and don’t talk to me!’ I always want to hear from the other artists involved, whether it’s the director, the lighting tech, or the actors.
Pearl Cleage
I’ve been Tech N9ne since ’88.

Growth is always essential. Running any tech company, you want to make sure you’re growing. Putting in place all of the right structure to be able to ensure growth.
