Naturally, our physicists demanded Gnu; with an eye to selling more computing cycles, we installed it happily.”
― Clifford Stoll, The Cuckoo’s Egg

One Final Bonus – Clifford Stoll Quote 

“I claim that this bookless library is a dream, a hallucination of on-line addicts; network neophytes, and library-automation insiders…Instead, I suspect computers will deviously chew away at libraries from the inside. They’ll eat up book budgets and require librarians that are more comfortable with computers than with children and scholars. Libraries will become adept at supplying the public with fast, low-quality information.

The result won’t be a library without books–it’ll be a library without value.”

― Clifford Stoll
