"We need — quite urgently, I think — plausible visions of where we might be fifty or a hundred or a thousand years hence: a hot, densely populated, predominantly urban planetary culture that nevertheless manages to feed everybody, house everybody, and give everybody room to pursue their own happiness without destroying our resource base."

"I think the crucial difference is that curating should really imply more than a process of selection. Ideally it should not only be based on in-depth research into a particular area, but it should also attempt to contribute new ideas that shed light on some unseen aspect or that allow us to see things in a new context. When I think of the best curated photography shows over the past decade, they were all based on several years of painstaking research and all attempted to say something new about their subject. Curators also have a crucial role to play in terms of collaboration with artists. Just as there is some concern about self-publishing because it generally implies that there is no outside editorial input, exhibitions curated by the artists themselves tend to be messy affairs."

"If you can't or won't buy one and you're in the online news biz, buy a Kindle 2 owner a beer and play with the Kindle for an hour or two at least.

Why? Because I seriously suspect devices like this could become game-changers for online and mobile news -- perhaps surprisingly fast. That is, if online news operations start taking e-reader technology seriously and work with Amazon and other companies to improve e-reader news delivery. We still have a way to go, but there's potential."
