QUOTES

  • "The problem is--and this is true of books and every other medium--we don't know whether the information we find [on the Web] is accurate or not. We don't necessarily know what its provenance is. So we have to teach people how to assess what they've found. That's a skill, a critical-thinking capacity, which is important no matter what the medium. It's just more dramatic in the World Wide Web, where there's so much juxtaposition of the good stuff and not-so-good stuff and flat-out-wrong stuff or deliberate misinformation or plain ignorance." Vinton Cerf VP & Chief Internet Evangelist, Google
