“Using technology to solve the problems it causes is as futile as cleaning a grass stain by rubbing grass on it.”
“[…]We can think about how to shift, move, and resize the pieces so that they fall back in line with our intentions. This power is compounded for those of us who make this technology.
But this is not a technological response. It is an explicit act of will—an individual’s choice to change their behaviors about what to use, where to work, what to adopt, what to pay attention to. It is simple mindfulness, that thing which needy technology makes so hard to practice. And it starts with a question: what is technology’s role in your life? And what, really, do you want from it?”

“Mankind sends a probe into space to catch a comet and land on it. And we need a great director, film and actors to convince people this is interesting.”
