  • someone is going to use my name, I’d rather it was because they know me, not because my face is in their database. (Location 286)
  • stackheads tend not to have an internal monologue, so you’ve got to listen to every dumb thought that goes through their heads; it’s a side effect of them wanting to record everything but not having figured out how to capture thoughts. (Location 293)
  • Euphemisms gain strength by hiding the truth. (Location 899)
