There are many quotation resources on the Internet. But I'm looking for a
good resource for quotations about the Internet itself. Feel free to poin=
me in the right direction, or send me your entries (if I can't find one,
I'll put up a page myself).

"The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it." John Gilm=
Variant: "The Internet interprets the US Congress as system damageand

one most subject to variations.
