“It has become appallingly clear obviously that our technology has exceeded our humanity.” – Albert Einstein
“Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.” – Aldous Huxley
“The real problem is not whether think its whether men do.” – B.F. Skinner
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” – Arthur C. Clarke

This one is my favorite: “Getting information from the Internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.” – Mitchell Kapor
