Mahatma Gandhi, (attributed)
Indian ascetic & nationalist leader (1869 - 1948)
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist.
When they locked up the incurably sick, I remained silent; I was not incurably sick.
When they came for the Jehovah's Witnesses, I did not speak out; I was not a Jehovah's Witnesses.
When they came for the Jews, I remained silent; I wasn't a Jew.
When they came for the people in occupied countries, I remained silent; I wasn't a person in an occupied country.
When they came for me, there was no one left to speak out.
Version based on Rev. Pastor Martin Niemöller's (1892–1984) 1946 speeches. see Prof. Harold Marcuse's Niemöller Quotation Page for an explanation.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.
J. C. Watts

CFP - Social Aspects of the Web (SAW 2009)
3rd Workshop on Social Aspects of the Web (SAW 2009)
in conjunction with 12th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2009)
April 27, 28 or 29, 2009
Deadline for submissions: February 1, 2009
In recent years, the Web has moved from a simple one-way communication channel, extending traditional media, to a complex "peer-to-peer" communication space with a blurred author/audience distinction and new ways to create, share, and use knowledge in a social way.
This change of paradigm is currently profoundly transforming most areas of our life: our interactions with other people, our relationships, ways of gathering information, ways of developing social norms, opinions, attitudes and even legal aspects, as well as ways of working and doing business.
The change also raises a strong need for theoretical, empirical and applied studies related to how people may interact on the Web, how they actually do so, and what new possibilities and challenges are emerging in the social, business and technology dimensions.
Following the two previous events, the goal of the 3rd Workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners together to explore the issues and challenges related to social aspects of the Web.
