My favorite quote was "being the first is important, being the best is
irrelevant" (Karp)

Such is life...

"For most of this century we have viewed communications as a conduit, 
       a pipe between physical locations on the planet. 
What's happened now is that the conduit has become so big and interesting 
      that communication has become more than a conduit, 
       it has become a destination in its own right..."
