a futile attempt to live in the world of the past

Jon Talton:

Even with the baseline budget, the United States spends more on defense than the next seven nations combined.

John Hamre:

There are more people in the Army today with their fingers on a keyboard than a trigger.

John Spencer:

Global connectedness had altered almost every facet of a soldier's daily life. Some commanders view the new connected social environment as simply a leadership challenge that can be controlled, perhaps by limiting soldiers' access to social media. This is a futile attempt to live in the world of the past.

Michael S. Schmidt:

In the past day, the FBI has used specially designed computer programs to determine whether there were any social media connections between the assailants and people in the United States. The results of those inquiries are not clear.

Leigh Alexander:

Facebook is absolutely, indisputably creepy, a fungal colony of privacy violations fused helplessly to our human infrastructure.

Paul Barford:

Everybody assumes somebody knows, but after a while you find out nobody actually knows.

Robert Hannigan:

Something is not quite right here. What is also clear is that we cannot as a country allow this situation to continue.

E. B. White:

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.

Horace Dediu:

The data under scrutiny is, as usual, the data that can be gathered. Unfortunately the data that can't be gathered is where the insight into what is happening may lie.

Samantha Power:

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