19 Visionair Telecities/Leeuwarden Local Broadband Policies 19 Where is the knowledge we have lost in Information? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? SOME VISIONAIRS: I think there is a world market for maybe 5 computers. IBM Chairman Thomas Watson, 1943 If the automobile had followed the same development as the computer, a Rolls Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year killing everyone inside. Robert Cringely in InfoWorld In a few minutes a computer can make a mistake so great that it would have taken many men many months to equal it. A nonymous Ict-applicaties worden de zuurstof voor onze maatschappij. Prof. Dr. Ir. Nico Baken, 2002 Whoever makes the most mistakes, wins Think Global, act Local
