“We are creating technologies - then we are the technologies:
Your heart is not LIKE a pump, your heart IS a pump. It’s not like your brain
is like a computer, it is a computer. Until the next thing comes along: Now
you’re a neural net or now you’re an information system.”
– John Brockmann in an interview with Lutz Dammbeck, Das Netz, 2004
