„The stern dad stuff doesn't work anymore. You have to be level with the kids, you have to be a nice guy… The authority thing just doesn't work anymore.“

—  Ang Lee Taiwanese-born American film director, screenwriter and film producer 1954

On parenting, Salon (17 October 1997).
Contexto: The stern dad stuff doesn't work anymore. You have to be level with the kids, you have to be a nice guy... The authority thing just doesn't work anymore. It's like directing a Chinese film vs. directing an American film. On a Chinese film you just give orders, no one questions you. Here, you have to convince people, you have to tell them why you want to do it a certain way, and they argue with you. Democracy.

„While the creative works from the 16th century can still be accessed and used by others, the data in some software programs from the 1990s is already inaccessible.“

—  Lawrence Lessig American academic, political activist. 1961

May the Source Be With You (2001)
Contexto: While the creative works from the 16th century can still be accessed and used by others, the data in some software programs from the 1990s is already inaccessible. Once a company that produces a certain product goes out of business, it has no simple way to uncover how its product encoded data. The code is thus lost, and the software is inaccessible. Knowledge has been destroyed.

„Free software permits students to learn how software works.“

—  Richard Stallman American software freedom activist, short story writer and computer programmer, founder of the GNU project 1953

Why Schools Should Exclusively Use Free Software (2003) http://www.gnu.org/education/edu-schools.html
2000s
Contexto: Free software permits students to learn how software works. Some students, on reaching their teens, want to learn everything there is to know about their computer and its software. They are intensely curious to read the source code of the programs that they use every day. To learn to write good code, students need to read lots of code and write lots of code. They need to read and understand real programs that people really use. Only free software permits this.
Proprietary software rejects their thirst for knowledge: it says, “The knowledge you want is a secret — learning is forbidden!” Free software encourages everyone to learn. The free software community rejects the “priesthood of technology”, which keeps the general public in ignorance of how technology works; we encourage students of any age and situation to read the source code and learn as much as they want to know. Schools that use free software will enable gifted programming students to advance.
