„Mathematics says the sum value of a network increases as the square of the number of members. In other words, as the number of nodes in a network increases arithmetically, the value of the network increases exponentially. Adding a few more members can dramatically increase the value of the network.“

„If you do not care about networks, the networks will care about you, anyway. For as long as you want to live in society, at this time and in this place, you will have to deal with the network society.
Because we live in the Internet Galaxy.“

„Sometimes people stop me in the street and ask me eef I am Harry Belafonte. When I say no, they get mad and walk away.“

—  Roberto Clemente Puerto Rican baseball player 1934 - 1972

As quoted in "Clemente Keeps Them On Their Toes" by Larry Klein, in Sport (October 1960), p. 96
Comment: While they may have been the first, Pittsburghers were clearly not the last to perceive this likeness. On August 18, 1973 (the day Clemente would've turned 39), Belafonte was pegged by Screen Gems (producers of Brian's Song) to star in what would prove to be but the first of several planned but never realized Clemente biopics. https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=zCAsAAAAIBAJ&sjid=850FAAAAIBAJ&pg=3049%2C4375173&dq=screen-gems-made-for-tv-film-roberto-clemente-harry-belafonte

„Do not be deluded into believing that the titular heads of the networks control what appears on their networks. They all have better taste.“

—  Edward R. Murrow Television journalist 1908 - 1965

RTNDA Convention Speech (1958)
Context: Do not be deluded into believing that the titular heads of the networks control what appears on their networks. They all have better taste. All are responsible to stockholders, and in my experience all are honorable men. But they must schedule what they can sell in the public market.

„When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down.“

—  Steve Jobs American entrepreneur and co-founder of Apple Inc. 1955 - 2011

Interview in WIRED magazine (February 1996)
1990s
Context: When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. Conspiracy is optimistic! You can shoot the bastards! We can have a revolution! But the networks are really in business to give people what they want. It's the truth.
