Quote of the Day: Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry

If you had asked an 11-year-old Jeff Bezos to let his imagination run wild and think of the stuff that he would most dream to have as an adult, he might have said:

  • The world’s biggest bookstore! Maybe even a bookstore that can beam any book directly to your hand in an instant (and movies and music, too!).
  • A giant sky computer that can imitate human intelligence.
  • A spaceship.
  • …And maybe even a robot army.

Of course any adult would have smiled slightly condescendingly, patted him on the head and helpfully explained that these things aren’t possible.

~ Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, from Jeff Bezos Is Indulging His 11-Year-Old Self And We Love It
