to think that there is someone who stands as a pioneer in computer technology is awe- evoking notion. Alan Kay is someone who has developed and help create technologies that most everyone uses now and also uses technologies that were influenced by these other technologies.
Comment from Alan Kay
I recognize all of these quotes except for: "To add to the school issue, when my daughter was only 8 years old she said, "School is such a waste of time. We should go straight to university and learn a profession." (Rafi Borenstein)"
I don't have a daughter. And I don't think one should go to university to learn a profession.
Best wishes to all,
“The Best Way to Predict the Future is to invent it.” Paris Hilton just tweeted this quote yesterday twitter.com/parishilton She probably meant it in the social science sense.
