"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions, which they have delighted in explaining to their colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven thread by thread into their own lives." -- Leo Tolstoy

"The iPhone ushered in an age of all Internet, all the time. For better or worse, it's blurred the lines between work and home lives, made communication a round-the-clock habit and led to a host of new rules about when and how it's appropriate to use smartphones (not while walking, driving, playing trivia or on a date, please)." -- Heather Kelly

"True openness requires data to be not only accessible, but also intelligible, assessable (who produced the data, what are their qualifications, do they have conflicts of interest?) and reusable." -- Geoffrey Boulton (by way of Will Richardson

"Each moment in a classroom is fleeting, precious and unique. But some moments set courses and shape a child's future." -- Sean Junnkins

"Anyone with a cellphone today is paparazzi; anyone with a Twitter account is a reporter; anyone with YouTube access is a filmmaker. When everyone is a paparazzi, reporter and filmmaker, everyone else is a public figure." --Thomas Friedman
