-Channing Tatum

 
 

CF Payne

-James A. Murphy

-Vanilla Ice

 
 

Rudy Gutierrez

"It was as if each of them sensed vaguely that the Saturday afternoons of youth are few, and precious, and this feeling which niether of them could have defined or described made every moment of this time together too short, too quickly gone, yet clearer and more sharply edged than any other."

-Grace Metalious

 
 

Kent Barton

"Of all the days that's in the week

I dearly love but one day

And that's the day that comes betwixt

A Saturday and Monday"

- Summer Sanders

 
 

Tyler Jacobson

"Marathon running is a game for players not winners...running is unique in that the world's best racers are on the same course, at the same time, as amateurs, who have as much chance of winning as your average weekend warrior would scoring a touchdown in the NFL."

-Hunter S. Thompson

 
 

John Matttos

"Sunday clears away the rust of the whole week."

-Joseph Addison

 
 

James Bennett

The Digital Revolution

 
Richard Solomon Artists Representative
 
The Digital Revolution
 

Chris Gall

"Today, companies have to radically revolutionize themselves every few years just to stay relevant. That's because technology and the Internet have transformed the business landscape forever. The fast-paced digital age has accelerated the need for companies to become agile."

-Nolan Bushnell

 

Rudy Gutierrez

"Social media is changing the way we communicate and the way we are perceived, both positively and negatively. Every time you post a photo, or update your status, you are contributing to your own digital footprint and personal brand."

-Amy Jo Martin

 

Ricardo Martinez

"We are in the throes of a transition where every publication has to think of their digital strategy."

-Bill Gates

 

Oscar Ramos

"In the digital world, sport provides opportunity to bring people together."

-Edwin Moses

 

Niklas Asker

"The viral power of online media has proven how fast creative ideas can be spread and adopted, using tools like cellphones, digital cameras, micro-credit, mobile banking, Facebook, and Twitter..."

-Tina Brown

 

 

Orlando Arocena

"Whether you like it or not, the digital age has produced a new format for modern romance, and natural selection may be favoring the quick-thumbed quip peddler over the confident, ice-breaking alpha male.'"

-Ashton Kutcher

 

Tim Bower

"Digital organisms, while not necessarily any more alive than a phone book, are strings of code that replicate and evolve over time. Digital codes are strings of binary digits - bits."

-George Dyson

 

Goni Montes

"Design, in it's broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era - it's a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good."

- Clement Mok

 

CF Payne

"I don't think much about the digital world...because I am in the analog world!"

-William Eggleston

 

Dongyun Lee

"More and more, job listings are exclusively available online and as technology evolves nearly every occupation now requires a basic level of digital literacy with web navigation, email access and participation in social media."

-Michael K. Powell

 

Sam Spratt

"What turns me on about the digital age, what excited me personally, is that you have closed the gap between dreaming and doing. You see, it used to be that if you wanted to make a record of a song, you needed a studio and a producer. Now, you need a laptop."

-Bono

 

Edward Kinsella III

"You have to provide value to the system. You've got to provide decent content. You can't just be marketing on these platforms.'"

-Oliver Luckett

 

Michal Lisowski

"We need to re-create boundaries. When you carry a digital gagdet that creates a virtual link to the office, you need to create a virtual boundary that didn't exist before."

-Daniel Goleman
 

Guy Stauber

"It simply is not true that everything is now on the Internet, but it is true that the digital resources available through the Internet have enormous potential for education and even for self- empowerment of individuals."

-Robert Darnton

 

Michal Dziekan

"If you use Facebook - as I do - Facebook in all likelihood has a unique digital file of your face, one that can be as accurate as a fingerprint and that can be used to identify you in a photo of a large crowd."

-Al Franken

 

James Bennett

"Digital intimacy ruins the appetite for the real thing. So, when kids are gaming or even when spouses are gaming, they lose their appetite for genuine intimacy. Kids lose their appetite for getting their intimacy needs, their hunger for significance and attachment, with the family, and it erodes the relationship between them and their parents."

- Gordon Neufeld

 

Maria Corte Maidagan

"Digital technology is both arousing and distancing. We don't look at the users on the other side as people. They aren't - they're just usernames..."

-Douglas Rushkoff

 

Jason Seiler

"Facebook was not originally created to be a company. It was built to accomplish a social mission - to make the world more open and connected."

-Mark Zuckerberg

 

David Palumbo

"Many people see technology as the problem behind the so-called digital divide. Others see it as the solution. Technology is neither. It must operate in conjunction with business, economic, political, and social system."

-Carly Florina

 

Jack Daly

"Digital imaging allows both groups to rise above limitations of mess and clutter and mechanics, and apply our talents to creating images limited only by our imaginations."

-Buffy Sainte-Marie

 

Thomas Ehretsmann

"We live in an age where there is a firehose of information, and there is no hierarchy of what is important and what is not. Where the truth is often fashioned through a variety of digital means. Are you your avatar? Who are you in social media? What face do you turn toward the world? How much does it have in common with who you actually are?"

- David Carr
 

John Mattos

"Historically, privacy was almost implicit, because it was hard to find and gather information. But in the digital world, whether it's digital cameras or satellites or just what you click on, we need to have more explicit rules - not just for governments but for private companies."

-Bill Gates
 

Gary Kelley

"Digital platforms are worthless without content. They're shiny sacks with bells and whistles, but without content, they're empty sacks. It is not about pixels versus print. It is not about how you're reading. It is about what you're reading."

-Maureen Dowd
