We are reaping the fruits of ten thousand, fifty thousand years of sowing of the fields of mind. And it is being dropped into our laps for us to create human-machine interfacing, control of genetic material, redefinition of social reality, re engineering of languages, revisioning of the planetary ecology, all these things fall upon us.Terence McKenna Re Engineering Sayings By Terence McKenna: We are reaping the fruits of ten thousand, fifty thousand years of sowing of the
... what society overwhelmingly asks for is snake oil. Of course, the snake oil has the most impressive names - otherwise you would be selling nothing - like "Structured Analysis and Design", "Software Engineering", "Maturity Models", "Management Information Systems", "Integrated Project Support Environments" "Object Orientation" and "Business Process Re-engineering".Edsger Dijkstra Re Engineering Sayings By Edsger Dijkstra: ... what society overwhelmingly asks for is snake oil. Of course, the snake oil has
Most people don't realize that it's not just minorities who don't do well in science and engineering - quite frankly, you're talking about Americans.Freeman A. Hrabowski III Re Engineering Sayings By Freeman A. Hrabowski III: Most people don't realize that it's not just minorities who don't do well in science
Reality isn't the most pleasant of atmospheres, Lieutenant. But we like to think we're engineered for it. It's a pretty fine piece of engineering, the kind an engineer can respect. Drag in an obsession and reality can't tolerate it. Something has to give; if reality goes, your fine piece of engineering is left with nothing to operate on. Nothing it was designed to operate on. So it operates badly. So kick the obsession out; start functioning the way you were designed to function.Theodore Sturgeon Re Engineering Sayings By Theodore Sturgeon: Reality isn't the most pleasant of atmospheres, Lieutenant. But we like to think we're engineered
When you want to know how things really work, study them when they're coming apart.William Gibson Re Engineering Sayings By William Gibson: When you want to know how things really work, study them when they're coming apart.
I'm not afraid of you. I'm not afraid of anything."
"Yes, you are, on both counts. You're afraid of everything. In England there are castles with stone walls that go up over a hundred feet, built during a time when it was the strength of your fortress that won battles. Each time I look at you, I marvel at the feat of organic engineering that's allowed you to create such a fortification within a perfect composition of female flesh.
Joey W. Hill Re Engineering Sayings By Joey W. Hill: I'm not afraid of you. I'm not afraid of anything." "Yes, you are, on both
Britain's great strength is its innovative, design and engineering natural ability and we're not using it.James Dyson Re Engineering Sayings By James Dyson: Britain's great strength is its innovative, design and engineering natural ability and we're not using
There's no doubt who was a leader in space after the Apollo Program. Nobody came close to us. And our education system, in science, technology, engineering and math, was at the top of the world. It's no longer there. We're descending rather rapidly.Buzz Aldrin Re Engineering Sayings By Buzz Aldrin: There's no doubt who was a leader in space after the Apollo Program. Nobody came
C-68 has little to do with gun control or crime control, but it is the first step necessary to begin the social re-engineering of Canada.Sharon Carstairs Re Engineering Sayings By Sharon Carstairs: C-68 has little to do with gun control or crime control, but it is the
It's simple. If you go to see 'Saturday Night Fever' expecting it to be good, it's a corker. However, if you go expecting it to be a crock of shit, it's that, too. Thus 'Saturday Night Fever' can exist in two mutually opposing states at the very same time, yet only by the weight of our expectations. From this principle we can deduce that any opposing states can be governed by human expectation - even, as in the case of retro-deficit-engineering, the present use of a future technology."
"I think I understand that. Does it work with any John Travolta movie?"
"Only the artistically ambiguous ones such as 'Pulp Fiction' or 'Face/Off.' 'Battlefield Earth' doesn't work, because it's a stinker no matter how much you think you're going to like it, and 'Get Shorty' doesn't work either, because you'd be hard-pressed not to enjoy it, irrespective of any preconceived notions.
Jasper Fforde Re Engineering Sayings By Jasper Fforde: It's simple. If you go to see 'Saturday Night Fever' expecting it to be good,
Especially girls, but any kids exposed to music programs and arts programs do much better on their tests. They have a better chance of going to college. They can focus better. You know, we're not just automatons learning how to work machines and do engineering and math and science. All of that's great, but you've got to build a whole person.Bonnie Raitt Re Engineering Sayings By Bonnie Raitt: Especially girls, but any kids exposed to music programs and arts programs do much better
I never believed 9/11, because I had engineering training at GA Tech, and I could tell when a building is being blown up by explosives. Any fool can look at those films and see the buildings aren't falling down, they're blowing up.Paul Craig Roberts Re Engineering Sayings By Paul Craig Roberts: I never believed 9/11, because I had engineering training at GA Tech, and I could
The other dynamic keeping the stock market up - both for technology stocks and others - is that companies are using a lot of their income for stock buybacks and to pay out higher dividends, not make new investment,. So to the extent that companies use financial engineering rather than industrial engineering to increase the price of their stock you're going to have a bubble. But it's not considered a bubble, because the government is behind it, and it hasn't burst yet.Michael Hudson Re Engineering Sayings By Michael Hudson: The other dynamic keeping the stock market up - both for technology stocks and others
First of all, try to have the highest of ethics and to be open and truthful about things, not hiding. If you have to hide something for company reasons, at least explain what you're doing. Don't mislead people. Know in your heart that you are a good person with good goals because that will carry over to your own self-confidence and your belief in your engineering abilities. Always seek excellence: make your product better than the average person would.Jessica Livingston Re Engineering Sayings By Jessica Livingston: First of all, try to have the highest of ethics and to be open and
We are being colonised without New Zealanders having some say in the numbers of people coming in and where they are coming from. This is a deliberate policy of ethnic engineering and re-population.Winston Peters Re Engineering Sayings By Winston Peters: We are being colonised without New Zealanders having some say in the numbers of people
I think through education, belief in God, and good engineering, our children become a lot better at what they're doing than we did, and that starts with the very first sign of life on the face of this earth.Evel Knievel Re Engineering Sayings By Evel Knievel: I think through education, belief in God, and good engineering, our children become a lot
Whether you're studying electrical engineering or poetry, college is not about maximizing income, it's about becoming a better and more informed observer of the universe. And for me, at least, that what's leads to a more fulfilling life.John Green Re Engineering Sayings By John Green: Whether you're studying electrical engineering or poetry, college is not about maximizing income, it's about
In this case, it's half strategy, half engineering. The combination is going to be different in every situation, but the point is that it's always outside-the-box, even outside-the-budget. Today, as a marketer, our task isn't necessarily to "build a brand" or even to maintain a preexisting one. We're better off building an army of immensely loyal and passionate users. Which is easier to track, define, and grow? Which of these is real, and which is simply an idea? And when you get that right - a brand will come naturally.Ryan Holiday Re Engineering Sayings By Ryan Holiday: In this case, it's half strategy, half engineering. The combination is going to be different
A company that cannot successfully implement the 5S's cannot expect to effectively integrate JIT, re-engineering, or any other large-scale change. Good workplaces develop beginning with the 5S's. Bad workplaces fall apart beginning with the 5S's.Hiroyuki Hirano Re Engineering Sayings By Hiroyuki Hirano: A company that cannot successfully implement the 5S's cannot expect to effectively integrate JIT, re-engineering,
Having a good idea is one thing, but persuading other people to buy it is quite another. Good inventors are polymaths: they think with their hands and their brains. They're experts in design, engineering and business.James Dyson Re Engineering Sayings By James Dyson: Having a good idea is one thing, but persuading other people to buy it is
Mile tracks put more emphasis on the driver. On the longer tracks, you can drive flat out all the way around, so it's more of an engineering exercise. On a mile, you can't run flat out. You're constantly in traffic, there's more driver involvement.Buddy Rice Re Engineering Sayings By Buddy Rice: Mile tracks put more emphasis on the driver. On the longer tracks, you can drive
What I'm trying to do is bring certain of those engineering values into the design process, such that when you think about form you're already incorporating those performance criteria in the process of the generation of forms.Neri Oxman Re Engineering Sayings By Neri Oxman: What I'm trying to do is bring certain of those engineering values into the design
No matter how much creativity goes into it, cooking is an art. Or perhaps I should say a craft. It abides by absolute rules, physics, chemistry, etc. and that means that unless you understand the science you cannot reach the art. We're not talking about painting here. Cooking's more like engineering. I happen to think that there is great beauty in great engineering.Alton Brown Re Engineering Sayings By Alton Brown: No matter how much creativity goes into it, cooking is an art. Or perhaps I
The underlying strategy of the Fed is to tell people, "Do you want your money to lose value in the bank, or do you want to put it in the stock market?" They're trying to push money into the stock market, into hedge funds, to temporarily bid up prices. Then, all of a sudden, the Fed can raise interest rates, let the stock market prices collapse and the people will lose even more in the stock market than they would have by the negative interest rates in the bank. So it's a pro-Wall Street financial engineering gimmick.Michael Hudson Re Engineering Sayings By Michael Hudson: The underlying strategy of the Fed is to tell people, "Do you want your money
The trauma of 9/11 stimulated infinite possibilities for worry - some quite plausible, but most inspired by remote what-if fantasies. A society bingeing on fear makes itself vulnerable to far more profound forms of destruction than terror attacks. The "terrorism war", like a nostalgic echo of the cold war, is using these popular fears to advance a different agenda - the re-engineering of American life through permanent mobilization.William Greider Re Engineering Sayings By William Greider: The trauma of 9/11 stimulated infinite possibilities for worry - some quite plausible, but most
I think re-engineering or restructuring or downsizing or rightsizing or whatever you want to call it, it's basically firing, has gone way too far. Employees, as I've talked to them across the country, feel that they are not respected, they are not valued, they are worried about their jobs. They simply feel that the company is no longer loyal to them. Why should they be loyal to the company, they ask me. Why should I go the extra mile? Why should I care?Robert Reich Re Engineering Sayings By Robert Reich: I think re-engineering or restructuring or downsizing or rightsizing or whatever you want to call
No matter what engineering field you're in, you learn the same basic science and mathematics. And then maybe you learn a little bit about how to apply it.Noam Chomsky Re Engineering Sayings By Noam Chomsky: No matter what engineering field you're in, you learn the same basic science and mathematics.
When you engineer early successes, what you're really doing is engineering hope. Hope is precious to a change effort.Chip Heath Re Engineering Sayings By Chip Heath: When you engineer early successes, what you're really doing is engineering hope. Hope is precious
Because the thing about viruses is that they're easily manipulated. The DNA they inject doesn't have to be destructive. It can be replaced with almost any kind of DNA you want, and it can be programmed to only replace certain parts of the host's genetic code. In other words, viruses are perfect vectors for genetic engineering.Christian Cantrell Re Engineering Sayings By Christian Cantrell: Because the thing about viruses is that they're easily manipulated. The DNA they inject doesn't
The hard work and big money you used to spend on frequent purchases of print and TV advertising now move to repeated engineering expenses and product failures. If anything, marketing is more time-consuming and expensive than it used to be. You're just spending the money earlier in the process (and repeating the process more often). This is worth highlighting: The Purple Cow is not a cheap shortcut. It is, however, your best (perhaps only) strategy for growth.Seth Godin Re Engineering Sayings By Seth Godin: The hard work and big money you used to spend on frequent purchases of print
An important re-engineering principle is that companies should focus on their core competence and outsource everything else.Bill Gates Re Engineering Sayings By Bill Gates: An important re-engineering principle is that companies should focus on their core competence and outsource
By the time we, consumers, are aware of processes like genetic engineering, they're already being done. It's sort of like the war in Iraq: By the time we know about it, it's almost a fait accompli. And that's certainly true with science.Ruth Ozeki Re Engineering Sayings By Ruth Ozeki: By the time we, consumers, are aware of processes like genetic engineering, they're already being
At the fourth grade level, girls at the same percentages of boys say they're interested in careers in engineering or math or astrophysics, but by eighth grade that has dropped precipitously.Chelsea Clinton Re Engineering Sayings By Chelsea Clinton: At the fourth grade level, girls at the same percentages of boys say they're interested
The public should know that the liability issues here have yet to be resolved, or even raised. If you're a farmer and you're growing a genetically engineering food crop, those genes are going to flow to the other farm.Jeremy Rifkin Re Engineering Sayings By Jeremy Rifkin: The public should know that the liability issues here have yet to be resolved, or
We don't care about what you did yesterday - we care about what you're going to do tomorrow.Cory Doctorow Re Engineering Sayings By Cory Doctorow: We don't care about what you did yesterday - we care about what you're going
When I became the NASA administrator - or before I became the NASA administrator - (Obama) charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering.Charles Bolden Re Engineering Sayings By Charles Bolden: When I became the NASA administrator - or before I became the NASA administrator -
We want you to write it down
to camouflage it. Only for the present, of course. Once the thing gets going we shan't have to bother about the great heart of the British public. We'll make the great heart what we want it to be. But in the meantime, it does make a difference how things are put. For instance, if it were even whispered that the N.I.C.E. wanted powers to experiment on criminals, you'd have all the old women of both sexes up in arms and yapping about humanity. Call it re-education of the mal-adjusted, and you have them all slobbering with delight that the brutal era of retributive punishment has at last come to and end. Odd thing it is
the word 'experiment' is unpopular, but not the word 'experimental.' You must'nt experiment on children; but offer the dear little kiddies free education in an experimental school attached to the N.I.C.E. and it's all correct!
C.S. Lewis Re Engineering Sayings By C.S. Lewis: We want you to write it downto camouflage it. Only for the present, of course.
I think actually if you take the analogy with other areas of engineering, and increasingly of science and even mathematics, you can see people do not have to learn the vast number of formulae they used to learn. Instead, they have to learn to use the computer effectively. This frees them, I feel, to understand concepts and the foundations while they're learning the mechanics of the application of the theory.C.A.R. Hoare Re Engineering Sayings By C.A.R. Hoare: I think actually if you take the analogy with other areas of engineering, and increasingly
To succeed at re-engineering, you have to be a missionary, a motivator, and a leg breaker.Michael Martin Hammer Re Engineering Sayings By Michael Martin Hammer: To succeed at re-engineering, you have to be a missionary, a motivator, and a leg
If you're running an engineering or finance company, all companies depend on ideas and ingenuity. I think the principles of creative leadership apply everywhere, whether it's an advertising company or whether you're running a hospital.Ken Robinson Re Engineering Sayings By Ken Robinson: If you're running an engineering or finance company, all companies depend on ideas and ingenuity.
We haven't shed our engineering pragmatism, so we accomplish things in the simplest manner possible. It helps with budget, obviously. We're not getting rich off web video, and we're supporting two families with our income, so we need to keep as much of the budget to ourselves.Rhett McLaughlin Re Engineering Sayings By Rhett McLaughlin: We haven't shed our engineering pragmatism, so we accomplish things in the simplest manner possible.
The comic edge of Ghostbusters will always be the same. It's still treating the supernatural with a totally mundane sensibility. In the world of ghostbusting, there are certain givens. You're always going to have some new invented technology, some pseudo-science that sounds right because we drop enough familiar terms from physics and engineering, and pseudo-methodology, something that people will think they may have read something about before.Harold Ramis Re Engineering Sayings By Harold Ramis: The comic edge of Ghostbusters will always be the same. It's still treating the supernatural
We got half the doggone MIT college of engineering here, and nobody who can fix a doggone /television/?" Dr. Joseph Abernathy glared accusingly at the clusters of young people scattered around his living room.
That's /electrical/ engineering, Pop," his son told him loftily. "We're all mechanical engineers. Ask a mechanical engineer to fix your color TV, that's like asking an Ob-Gyn to look at the sore on your di-ow!"
Oh, sorry," said his father, peering blandly over gold-rimmed glasses. "That your foot, Lenny?
Diana Gabaldon Re Engineering Sayings By Diana Gabaldon: We got half the doggone MIT college of engineering here, and nobody who can fix
Page holds Musk up as a model he wishes others would emulate - a figure that should be replicated during a time in which the businessmen and politicians have fixated on short-term, inconsequential goals. "I don't think we're doing a good job as a society deciding what things are really important to do," Page said. "I think like we're just not educating people in this kind of general way. You should have a pretty broad engineering and scientific background. You should have some leadership training and a bit of MBA training or knowledge of how to run things, organize stuff, and raise money. I don't think most people are doing that, and it's a big problem. Engineers are usually trained in a very fixed area. When you're able to think about all of these disciplines together, you kind of think differently and can dream of much crazier things and how they might work. I think that's really an important thing for the world. That's how we make progress.Ashlee Vance Re Engineering Sayings By Ashlee Vance: Page holds Musk up as a model he wishes others would emulate - a figure
The business we're in is more sociological than technological, more dependent on workers' abilities to communicate with each other than their abilities to communicate with machines.Tom DeMarco Re Engineering Sayings By Tom DeMarco: The business we're in is more sociological than technological, more dependent on workers' abilities to
Corporations, in the name of efficiency, suppress variation by "getting all the ducks in line."To optimize productivity, they evolve highly refined and internally consistent operating systems. Payoff - results - as long as the music lasts. But ... all that streamlining and re-engineering limits diversity, suppresses self-organization ... and curtails a bottom up emergent response to disruptive change.Richard Pascale Re Engineering Sayings By Richard Pascale: Corporations, in the name of efficiency, suppress variation by "getting all the ducks in line."To
There's an old joke that you know you're in heaven if the cooks are Italian and the engineering is German. If it's the other way around you're in hell.David Byrne Re Engineering Sayings By David Byrne: There's an old joke that you know you're in heaven if the cooks are Italian
Let's also make sure that a high school diploma puts our kids on a path to a good job. Right now, countries like Germany focus on graduating their high school students with the equivalent of a technical degree from one of our community colleges, so that they're ready for a job. At schools like P-TECh in Brooklyn ... students will graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree in computers or engineering. We need to give every American student opportunities like this.Barack Obama Re Engineering Sayings By Barack Obama: Let's also make sure that a high school diploma puts our kids on a path
I feel very strongly that history is about everything. It isn't just about politics or the military or social issues. If art, music, engineering, science, medicine, finance, the world of architecture and technology - if those are left out, then you're not getting a full sense of the human condition. History is human and we human beings are involved in all kinds of things and that's part of our humanity.David McCullough Re Engineering Sayings By David McCullough: I feel very strongly that history is about everything. It isn't just about politics or
This is a global fight to get the right people in the right place and we're talking about people with PhDs in engineering, computer science, mathematics.Jerry Moran Re Engineering Sayings By Jerry Moran: This is a global fight to get the right people in the right place and
The very notion that millions of workers displaced by the re-engineering and automation of the agricultural, manufacturing, and service sectors can be retrained to be scientists, engineers, technicians, executives, consultants, teachers, lawyers and the like, and then somehow find the appropriate number of job openings in the very narrow high-tech sector, seems at best a pipe dream, and at worst a delusion.Jeremy Rifkin Re Engineering Sayings By Jeremy Rifkin: The very notion that millions of workers displaced by the re-engineering and automation of the
