You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data
Design adds value faster than it adds costs
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.
Data really powers everything we do
Data is the kind of ubiquitous resource that we can shape to provide new innovations and new insights, and it’s all around us, and it can be mined very easily.
Data, I think, is one of the most powerful mechanisms for telling stories. I take a huge pile of data and I try to get it to tell stories.

Life is a DNA software system.
There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.
Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn.
Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated.
Design is the intermediary between information and understanding.
Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves.
Walking on water and developing software from a specification are easy if both are frozen.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.
Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort with luxe, the practical with the desirable.
The goal is to turn data into information, and information into insight.
Software is a great combination between artistry and engineering.
Good design is all about making other designers feel like idiots because that idea wasn’t theirs.
Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.
Design is what links creativity and innovation. It shapes ideas to become practical and attractive propositions for users or customers. Design may be described as creativity deployed to a specific end.
Controlling complexity is the essence of computer programming
What is design? It’s where you stand with a foot in two worlds – the world of technology and the world of people and human purposes – and you try to bring the two together.
Knowledge has become the key economic resource and the dominant, if not the only, source of competitive advantage
Errors using inadequate data are much less than those using no data at all.
A bad system will beat a good person every time.
