Quotes

...For this year's event, the focus was on Art + Commerce and how the two intersect throughout our lives, at work and at home. "PURE's model and mission were founded by challenging conventional thinking and finding a better solution to the insurance and risk management issues our members faced. We recognize that same drive to find new ideas, to rethink how we approach issues, in the Nantucket Project and are proud to be a sponsor of this gathering of minds" said Mark Galante, CMO of the PURE Group of Insurance Companies
"Google is not 'a playroom of ideas' as it wants to portray itself, and it’s not a 'different kind of company,'" Assange said. "It’s a normal company. Unlike normal companies it is engaged in a very ambitious project that is not normal ... to gather as much info as possible on people, store it, index it and use it to sell advertising. And it's very easy for the NSA to get its fangs into that."
"I would say that there's tremendous value in having America's first-in-the-nation offshore wind installation located in Nantucket Sound. It's an area of the country-- like so many others --that is faced with great challenges, but because of our access to an abundant clean energy supply, it holds even greater opportunities that can help preserve our environment and way of life for generations."
"In the digital world we can delete history very easily. The notion of being able to disappear history entered into Orwell’s writing. He who controls the present controls the past. He who controls the past controls the future" Assange said
