Taylor Swift:

I have to stop myself from thinking about how many aspects of technology I don't understand.

Nicholas Carr:

When an inscrutable technology becomes an invisible technology, we would be wise to be concerned. At that point, the technology's assumptions and intentions have infiltrated our own desires and actions. We no longer know whether the software is aiding us or controlling us. We're behind the wheel, but we can't be sure who's driving.

A victim/beneficiary of automation:

I know I'm not in the loop, but I'm not exactly out of the loop. It's more like I'm flying alongside the loop.

David Sanger:

The recent attacks on the financial firms raise the possibility that the banks may not be up to the job of defending themselves.

Thomas Wells:

Once one recognizes the real world significance of framing, governments have an ethical obligation to step in to mitigate its potential to undermine people's ability to choose prudently -- to safeguard and further their interests in health and wealth.

Samantha Power:

There are great benefits to connectedness, but we haven't wrapped our minds around the costs.
