“In technology, people are very, very fast to declare something a winner or loser, like, ‘That’ll never work,’ or ‘That’ll take over the world.’ The truth is always somewhere in between.”
(Ben Silbermann, CEO of Pinterest, quoted by Erin Griffith, “Pinterest Is a Unicorn. It Just Doesn’t Act Like One,” NYTimes, 9-10-18)

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day, and watch Netflix and Prime Video for entertainment. I like to read and memorize poetry.
