Quotes

"While I may not be the absolute smartest or most sophisticated researcher, I pride myself on my ability to see connections and relationships between things that may appear at face value to be very different. So, in that vein, my ideas typically come to me in one of three ways: they spring up when I let my mind wander during a conversation; I wake up in the morning with an idea I didn't have before going to bed the night before (typically inspired by a conversation I had, article I read, or show I watched the day before); or they come to me while lost in thought doing a relatively mindless task, like walking my dogs or taking a shower. From there, I seek out conversations with people I perceive as more knowledgeable than me in the relevant topics. The research arises when I'm able to communicate the ideas effectively to those people, and they get as excited as I am."
He sees the app as a first step toward introducing people to the cyborg experience: "We all have a mobile phone and we all use technology constantly, so this has become normal. It will also become normal to have tech inside our bodies or have it implanted. I think it just needs time."
"Game designers, biologists, data analysts - there are not that many professions that wouldn't benefit from programming skills. Programming languages will come and go, but technology will stay. I think everyone should at least try programming."
"People who criticize PHP are usually criticizing where it was in 1998,” he says. “These people are not up-to-date with where it is today. PHP today is a very mature ecosystem.”"
