In this post, you will find great Digital Quotes from famous people, such as Sebastian Thrun, Aileen Lee, Vicky Krieps, Stephen J. Dubner, Maren Morris. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
Digital platforms are worthless without content. They’re shiny sacks with bells and whistles, but without content, they’re empty sacks. It is not about pixels versus print. It is not about how you’re reading. It is about what you’re reading.
Digital currencies present a chance for money to truly become information, and for the creation of a global financial system that is truly frictionless, open, and uncensored – the vision we once had for the Internet.
Look at music for what it’s worth around the world and not just America. In other countries, people are still buying CDs and going to record stores. But in America, it’s all about digital. The game is breaking down. But, look at me, you need to know how to play the game the right way.
I really love laser-cutting. I do a lot of laser-cut jewelry and laser-etched stationery. I’ll even etch my foodsometimes. You can download an image online and etch it onto a tortilla or a brownie. It’s so cool to meld the digital and analog worlds together.
Since we made Shrek in the digital format, you actually can see it in its purest form digitally.
I wish Rupert, Robert, and their hugelytalented News Corp team continued and growing success in all they do, deploying News Corp’s extraordinaryskills and potential to the huge opportunities of a relentlessly more digital world.
When we find a fossil, we mark it. Today, we’ve got great technology: we have GPS. We mark it with a GPS fix, and we also take a digital photograph of the specimen, so we couldessentially put it back on the surface, exactly where we found it.
Xerox did OK in moving to digital in the commercial space. They didn’t do well in the consumer market, but they’re not a consumer brand. They don’t even know how to spell consumer.
In the digital age, we filter forward instead of filtering out. As a result, all that material is still available to us and to others to filter in their own ways, and to bring forward in other contexts.
When you use film, you use accidents, but there aren’t any accidents with digital photography. I don’t mind that it’s easy. But I do mind that there is a sort of consensus with the camera and the subject and the light, and you look at something, and you photograph it, and you get what you see.
When the digital world is really here, movies can be disseminated from satellite direct to homes and direct to small theaters in Mongolia and northernRussia and obscureplaces that the market for movies is going to grow and grow and grow.
We’ve learned that you can’t just put your promos up in a digital environment and expect the consumer will accept that as shortform content. It needs to have a unique point of view and style and execution that is tailored to that platform.
Whether it’s digital or physical, a pencil or a pen: line work. Humans are making things. And out of that comes the entire designed world we livewithin.
‘Frontline’ started doing digital content in 1995. We started streaming our films in 2000.
I’m sad to see celluloid go, there’s no doubt. But, you know, nitrate went, by the way, in 1971. If you ever saw a nitrate print of a silent film and then saw an acetate print, you’d see a big difference, but nobodyremembers anymore. The acetate print is what we have. Maybe. Now it’s digital.
I think that integrating information to everyday objects will not only help us to get rid of the digital divide, the gapbetween these two worlds, but will also help us, in some way, to stay human, to be more connected to our physical world.
Bitcoin is mostly about anonymous transactions, and I don’t think over time that’s a good way to go. I’m a huge believe in digital currency… but doing it on an anonymous basis I think that leads to some abuses, so I’m not involved in Bitcoin.
I think Dogme was inspiring for quite a few peoples and sort of started a digital movement. Personally, I found it extremely uplifting and fantastic making Dogme movies, but I felt I completed it with ‘The Celebration.’ I think that was the end of the road on Dogme for me. It was as far as I could go.
I don’t think much about the digital world… because I am in the analog world!
Analog sounds so much better. I frankly can’t listen to digital audio for more than a few hours without really starting to hate what I’m listening to. Even decent 24-bit digital resolution really irritates me after a while.
Change is inevitable with the evolution of technology. In the ’70s, we had records. In the ’80s, we had CDs, and now we are living in the digital age. You can say it’s sad or unfortunate, but the reality is you’ve got to roll with the times and the technology.
I think there are things that digital can’t do as well as print thus far. Even an iPad is only 80% the size of a standard comics page, so the images are going to be smaller. You don’t get your big, whopping two-page spreads.
It seems everyone is converging on a simple set of facts: Our lives are digital, and we wish to share our lives. Pinterest came at it through images, artfully curated. Facebook came at it through friends, cunningly organized. Dropbox came to it via files, cleverly clouded.
The world’s information is digital. The web, the news, all of that is digital. And now… we have ten million books scanned. That was the last bastion of what was offline; it’s now online and accessible.
Everybody hates to edit my film. Back in the day, we called it film – now, my digital cards. But I shoot an awful lot of pictures. I don’t want to hesitate, because I believe the moment is everything in a picture. So, I take the pictures.
Among many other things, a smartphone functions as a handheld digital sensor for the physical world. In other words, we don’t necessarily need our real world things to be directly connected, when the Web interface in our mobile devices provides the network access and intelligence.
I truly believe that when the history books are written, our age will be remembered for three things: the war on terror, the digital revolution, and what we did – or did not do – to put the fire out in Africa. History, like God, is watching what we do.
We think that there is this terrible idea that the kids are digital natives… and they know what they’re doing, but all the evidence says that they’re hanging around going, ‘Where are you, I’m here, can I post my picture?’ They’re not actually writing wikis; they’re not actually listening to great poets live.
By lowering the barrier to create new digital currency applications, we’ll see an explosion in the number of ideas tried. We’ll invest in, partner with, or build a number of new applications in this space, including replacements for many of the services people use in finance 1.0.
As an avid photographer, I also took advantage of the latest technology in photography – digital photography – to post photos on my website on a daily basis.
A lot of gaming and a lot of interaction is no longer physical; it’s all digital and at a distance. There’s this innate, tribal need of the people to have face time with other people and play together in person. I think there’s been this rediscovery of the joy of playing with people around the table.
If we look at India and the Indiandemographics and the Indian consumer, I think the Indian consumer is going digital, social, and mobile. They want everything in a digital format, everything available on the go, and we socially connected.
Before digital and mobile communications effectively tethered us to an invisible, infinite ‘wire,’ even those with the most hecticschedules were usually willing to answer the phone if they happened to be home when it rang.
Credits in your PayPal account are really just USD-backed – they are not a unique currency themselves. Other ‘digital currencies,’ such as Facebook Credits, can be created out of nothing and without limit, so they are not serious money.
My main camera is a Nikon D3. I use a French camera from the 1800s for wet plate photography, I use a Hasselblad sometimes. But to me the camera really doesn’t matter that much. I don’t have a preference for film or digital.
I want to see traditional policing with a modern flavour. I am completely committed to local, visible policing, but we have to modernise. There are such opportunities for people to interact with police through the digital sphere that we have not achieved yet.
Today, companies have to radicallyrevolutionize themselves every few years just to stay relevant. That’s because technology and the Internet have transformed the business landscape forever. The fast-paced digital age has accelerated the need for companies to become agile.
We do like digital projection. We like shooting on film, finishing digitally, and projection digitally. That’s what I like best. It’s still a movie. It’s not someone‘s camcorder and it got projected. That’s mean, I know.
I was always kind of against streaming, but I’ve been traveling so much, and I usually carry a huge hard drive of digital music with me, but I haven‘t had time to deal with it, so I’ve been doing streaming. And I had this incrediblebreakthrough of weightlessness where I’ve really been loving streaming music.
Our success at Cisco has been defined by how we anticipate, capture, and lead through market transitions. Over the years, I’ve watchediconic companies disappear – Compaq, Sun Microsystems, Wang, Digital Equipment – as they failed to anticipate where the market was heading.
Grain isn’t structured like a screen door that you’re looking through, but pixels are. Film-based grain is just all over the place, one frametotally different from the next. So your edges are coolly sharp and have a different feeling, an organic feeling rather than this mechanic feeling you get with digital.
Unlike regular digital or film cameras, which can only record a scene in two dimensions, light field cameras capture all of the light rays traveling in every direction through a scene. This means that some aspects of a picture can be manipulated after the fact.
What really turns me on about technology is not just the ability to get more songs on MP3 players. The revolution – this revolution – is much bigger than that. I hope, I believe. What turns me on about the digital age, what excites me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing.
I won’t do advertising if they bring a layout and say, ‘This is what we want to do,’ because anybody can do that; it’s not interesting. They’ve got digital and the computer; it’s not taking pictures, it’s not magic – it’s a picture done by committee.
With our blogs and tweets, digital cameras, and unlimited-gigabyte e-mail archives, participation in the online culture now means creating a trail of always present, ever searchable, unforgetting external memories that only grows as one ages.
Surveillance technologies now available – including the monitoring of virtually all digital information – have advanced to the point where much of the essentialapparatus of a police state is already in place.
If we look at India and the Indiandemographics and the Indian consumer, I think the Indian consumer is going digital, social, and mobile. They want everything in a digital format, everything available on the go, and we socially connected.
Historically, privacy was almost implicit, because it was hard to find and gather information. But in the digital world, whether it’s digital cameras or satellites or just what you click on, we need to have more explicit rules – not just for governments but for private companies.
I like collecting comics, I like buying comics, I like looking at comics, but I also read comics on digital readers, so any way people read comics is fine with me. Digital is just helping people who might not necessarily have access to comics help them; that’s great.
I’m pretty much fully digital. I’ve basicallyspent a few painstakingdaysputting sounds into my laptop, just banking them, because I love playing, and I love visually seeing it on my screen and being able to change the sounds more, with different plug-ins. I’ve created my own synth sounds.
Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era – it’s a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.
I used to work for 12 or 14 hours at a time but the digital age has made such happy immersions almost impossible.
We’ve never lived in an environment in which it has been so easy to capture information and share it. That fact that it is digital and easy to transmit exacerbates that. I don’t know that we know yet what social norms we wish to adopt.
Whether we’re conscious of it or not, our work and personal lives are made up of daily rituals, including when we eat our meals, how we shower or groom, or how we approach our daily descent into the digital world of email communication.
People who are digital native, they want to have real-time performance feedback. They want to understand where they are, what might happen, what their future is. And they want to understand that quickly in a very direct conversation.
To bring the benefits of the digital age to all Americans, the FCC needs to make it easier for companies to build and expand broadband networks. We need to reduce the cost of broadband deployment, and we need to eliminateunnecessary rules that slow down or deter deployment.
Many people see technology as the problem behind the so-called digital divide. Others see it as the solution. Technology is neither. It must operate in conjunction with business, economic, political and social system.
While digital wallets are paving the way for the future of payments, you still need to assess whether or not they’ll work for your business. If your target audience are less tech-savvy or you’re primarily a cash-only business, it may not be worth investing too much into accepting digital payments.
The biggest invention of modern time is the book. The book is a digital medium; book text is written in a different form and replicable. What it really does is it allows us to replicate cultural information, scientific technology, and information out of the human brain.
The same way we can send and receive an email with anyone, anywhere, for free, or we can share a photo with anyone instantly for free, money will become these digital tokens, and we’ll be able to do that with money.
In our age of digital connection and constantly online life, you might say that two political regimes are evolving, one Chinese and one Western, which offer two kinds of relationships between the privacy of ordinary citizens and the newfound power of central authorities to track, to supervise, to expose and to surveil.
Over the years, people have asked me, ‘Do you think there should be a separate category for acting in the digital realm? Or hybrid sort of awards for digital characters?’ and so on. And I’ve always really maintained that I don’t believe so.
In my dressing room, you’ll definitely find some Starbursts and Skittles. I have a lot of candles that remind me of home, and a humidifier for my voice. I also have some digital Kodak albums where I have pictures of my friends and family.
Once the words of a book appearonscreen, they are no longer simply themselves; they have become a part of something else. They now occupy the same space, not only as every other digital text, but as every other medium, too.
The most exciting part of what I do is understanding the scale of what we don’t know. There are just countless archaeological sites all over the world, and one of the most important and best ways of finding them is using digital technology.
I think that it’s really important to step back and to take breaks as a digital creator because every other kind of platform is kind of set up to have seasons or time off or at least a barrier between creator and consumer. You have these set-up boundaries.
I think that GeorgeLucas‘ ‘Star Wars‘ films are fantastic. What he’s done, which I admire, is he has taken all the money and profit from those films and poured it into developing digital sound and surround sound, which we are using today.
People try to read a lot into what ‘digital’ means. It’s just another platform. There are very attractive things that happen if you invest in content – movies, TV production, acquired series, specialtygenres, digital distribution of our magazines, sports rights.
So we should preserve it. I don’t think that digital storage is necessarily a good thing, but I definitely think that digital manipulation is interesting.
We haven’t lost romance in the digital age, but we may be neglecting it. In doing so, antiquated art forms are taking on new importance. The power of a handwritten letter is greater than ever. It’s personal and deliberate and means more than an e-mail or text ever will.
The Ford Flex is a really, really cool car. You get inside and you have so much headroom and it’s really comfortable to drive and it’s real techy inside. You look at the screen and it’s blue and you’ve got all kinds of controls. Everything is digital.
The breadth and scale of the capabilities we provide end-to-end across strategy, consulting, digital, technology, and operations are absolutely unique in the marketplace. And this is why Accenture remains the partner of choice for the world’s leading companies in executing large-scale transformation programs.
In the modern road-running era, digital photography has intersected with weekend-warrior culture, creating a golden age of social-media humblebragging. For some, the marathon course is sacred ground. For others, it’s a personal movie set.
You can get digital technology that almost is film quality, and go make little films and do everything you can to find a little understanding of your own voice and it will grow – Don’t take no for an answer – Take every opportunity you can to do something.
I was interested in the questions that come up when the Internet gives you access not just to JSTOR libraries and to digital information, but also to things that are live and dynamic and organic in some way.
BlogHer is an incredibly important conference because it really taps into the power of women. It gives women an ability to do what they do – take care of the home, go to work – and, at the same time, spread their power through the power of the digital world.
I will talk about two sets of things. One is how productivity and collaboration are reinventing the nature of work, and how this will be very important for the global economy. And two, data. In other words, the profound impact of digital technology that stems from data and the data feedback loop.
When combining the elements on the Total Guide Solution, we believe we are positioning it to be the starting point for consumers to discover and enjoy digital entertainment on their television. And our name changed to Rovi embodied the ability to be that homepage for consumer search through the TV.
Credit or debit cards, for starters, are nothing short of shoppers’ Novocain. Even in the age of digital purchases and virtual money, we still attach a special value to dirty paper with pictures of presidents on it. Handing some of that to a cashier simply hurts more than handing over a little sliver of plastic.
I do believe that most startups who develop applications and digital products design ‘towards the middle.’ By this, I mean they design their products to reach the broadest consumer base possible, which is a sound strategy in some respects.
Bitcoin’s revolution: an impossible-to-counterfeit digital store of value that can be used as money, that has no sovereign, or central bank involved, that can be sent anywhere instantly at virtually no cost, is irresistible. Anyone who uses it is converted.
My ears won’t fool me. Even when I do a session on digital, we still warm it up somewhere in the process, in mastering or mixing, running the signal through some tubes somewhere.
Impact sourcing, a new initiative piloted by the Rockefeller Foundation and several key partners, including my company Samasource, promises to connect poor and marginalized people to digital jobs on a massive scale.
What needs to be done is that the digital initiatives that we had started, that those get the same kind of focus, and that we now disincentivize the use of cash. If you’re going to slide back into the ways that we had before this demonetization impact, then you really won’t get the benefits.
As one of the first creators on YouTube, I’ve been fortunate to sit in the front row, witnessing the remarkable evolution of digital media. The experiences and knowledge I’ve been afforded are invaluable, and I’m excited to take that skill set, together with Endemol Beyond, to build a reliable, reputable business.
Unlike painting, sculpture, or music, typefaces must be useful to someone. Fortunately for designers, the digital age has produced new problems to solve – developing typefaces that work on mobile phones, for one – and enabled better solutions to old problems.
Every sector of society looks at digital analytics in a productive way. Limiting my ability to use them is just unacceptable. And by the way, Congress conducts polls using traditional methods. No one is using social media analytics as a substitute for that.
I’ve seen plenty of films where the projector broke. The problems that we have in the digital age are exactly the same as we had. Instead of, ‘There’s a hair in the gate,’ it’s, ‘The computer ate the footage.’ There will always be things like that going on. Nothing is perfect.
It is time to stop debating whether the Internet is an effective tool for political expression and instead to address the much more urgent question of how digital technology can be structured, governed, and used to maximize the good and minimize the evil.
I think it’s fundamentally a good sign that more and moreprofessional traders and market makers are providing liquidity to the whole ecosystem. It allows people to move much larger quantities of digital currency more quickly than they would if that were not the case.
I feel comfortable with either digital or film – the director and the project should determine the course of choice.
I just tend toward more lush, full sounds in my productions. I don’t have any preference when it comes to analogue versus digital; I use what’s best for the application. Analogue synthesis is nice, but it’s just one tool among many, and it has its place.
We’re moving to this integration of biomedicine, information technology, wireless and mobile now – an era of digital medicine. Even my stethoscope is now digital. And of course, there’s an app for that.
Opera combines pretty basic theater and poetry, but the storylineitself is actually quite poetic and, after some digital research, taking that actual content and seeing it as undeniably poetic.
It was an interesting question as to whether the BBC had a future in the digital world, and what form of market failure could justify the licence fee system.
Whether you’re a government entity, a large enterprise, or a startup, a true digital transformation takes advantage of technology to focus on the customer, automates work that does not need manualinterference, and unleashes your people to truly make decisions that change the path of your company.
I’m not against digital photography. It’s great for newspapers. And there are photographers doing great work digitally. When they use Photoshop as a darkroom tool, that’s fine, too. But at this point of my life, after so many years, I don’t really want to change, and I still love film.
Given that everyone’s got a voice, it’s the age of the democratisation of information through digital technology. That means women can rise up, and people of colour can rise up, and these stories are much more present to us. And that’s great.
