Everything will be all right in the end, if it's not all right then it's not the end – Sonny Kapoor
  • 20 Years of the www - "They had this idea that it could be transformative but at the same time some documentation says don't be disappointed when you come and see what it's like, it's just words on a screen" - Dan Noyes CERN Web Manager, talking about Tim Berners-Lee and the team that created the World Wide Web.
There's no road has not a star above it – Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The total collapse of the public opinion polls shows that the country is in good health. A country that developed an airtight system of finding out in advance what was in people's minds would be uninhabitable. Luckily, we do not face any such emergency. The so-called science of poll-taking is not a science at all but mere necromancy. People are unpredictable by nature, and although you can take a nation's pulse, you can't be sure that the nation hasn't just run up a flight of stairs, and although you can take a nation's blood pressure, you can't be sure that if you come back in twenty minutes you'd get the same reading. This is a damn fine thing." He added: "We are proud of America for clouding up the crystal ball, for telling one thing to a poll-taker, another thing to a voting machine. This is an excellent land." - Not 2016 but a quote from Writings From The New Yorker 1925-1976 By E. B. White and quoted in the New York Times 19 December 1990.
