    • “Libraries, especially public libraries, exist inorder to balance the inequality of informationaccess due to economic or other pressures. Nosingle average member of the public can affordto purchase all of the potential information theymay want to access, and so libraries distributethat financial burden across the public as awhole, acting both as collective buyer for theircommunity and as access point.”

    • ...If you were to knock on the door of one ofthese critics and say “Sir, there are flamesleaping out of your roof, your house isburning,” under these conditions he wouldthen say to you, “That’s a very interestingpoint of view. Personally, I couldn’t disagreewith you more.”...
    • ...That’s all these critics are saying. Theirhouse is burning and they’re saying, “Don’tyou have any sense of values, simplytelling people about fire when you shouldbe thinking about the serious content, thenoble works of the mind?”Value is irrelevant.”

    • future of the book
    • “...some of the most significant aspects ofthe new medium are yet to be recognized.Guessing: There may not be hypertextsequels so much as the instantiation ofnew windows on the "reality" of the story.Group participation both during initialconstruction and in expanding theongoing reality may be one of the moststriking features of the art form.”
    • “I believe hypertext fiction will ultimately be an entirely new art form, as different from novels as motion pictures are from oil paintings.”
    • moving forward
    • “The movement of information atapproximately the speed of light hasbecome by far the largest industry of theworld. The consumption of thisinformation has become correspondinglythe largest consumer function in theworld...
    • ...The globe has become on one hand acommunity of learning, and at the sametime...the globe has become a tiny village.Patterns of human association based onslower media have become overnight notonly irrelevant and obsolete, but a threat tocontinued existence and to sanity.”
