"People don’t know how to look and spend time looking. Everything’s so instant, and not even real. It’s all a screen."

"Algo de la inmaterialidad del libro electrónico se contagiará a su contenido…La televisión es hasta ahora la mejor demostración de que la pantalla banaliza los contenidos (sobre todo las ideas) y tiende a convertir todo lo que pasa en ella en espectáculo, en el sentido más epidérmico y efímero del término."

- Mario Vargas Llosa

"And hopefully I will carry on, and develop it, because it is worthwhile. Carry on because it matters when other things don’t seem to matter so much: the money job, the editorial assignment, the fashion shoot. Then one day it will be complete enough to believe it is finished. Made. Existing. Done. And in its own way: a contribution, and all that effort and frustration and time and money will fall away. It was worth it, because it is something real, that didn’t exist before you made it exist: a sentient work of art and power and sensitivity, that speaks of this world and your fellow human beings place within it. Isn’t that beautiful?"

- Paul Graham’s text for Yale MFA graduation book, February 2009.
