“While greenies and their media flunkies continue to savage the gasoline-powered internal-combustion engine and rhapsodize about hybrids, hydrogen, electrics, natural gas, propane, nuclear, and God-knows-what-other panaceas, perhaps including bovine urine, there are no realistic, economically viable alternatives. None. Zero. Like it or not, as long as we remain dependent on the private automobile for transportation (roughly 80 percent of all movement in the nation is by car), we are harnessed to the IC gas engine.”

 

Brock Yates

“The harsh reality is that America moves on four wheels, powered by conventional internal-combustion engines. At this point, while the elite media (excluding Newsweek) trumpet the benefits of hybrids and Ford and Toyota plan to lead the nation into a low-powered, high-mileage hybrid Utopia, the multitudes remain loyal to the gas-guzzling family bus in the driveway.”

 

Brock Yates

“Media over here, coming to ya like a world premiere. Trench coat and my underwear, let’s go with this freak show.”

Brian Solis

“Evolution is evolution – and it’s happened before us and will continue after we’re gone. But, what’s taking place now is much more than change for the sake of change. The socialization of content creation, consumption and participation, is hastening the metamorphosis that transforms everyday people into participants of a powerful and valuable media literate society.”

 

Brian Solis

“Social media is less about technology and more about anthropology, sociology, and ethnography.”

 

Brian Solis

“The landscape for business isn’t changing because of social media, it’s changing because consumer expectations are evolving.”

 

Brian Solis

“The good thing about social media is it gives everyone a voice. The bad thing is … it gives everyone a voice.”

 

Brian Solis

“Social media is about sociology and psychology more then technology.”

 

Brian Solis

“Research shows that social media is comprised of two components: social and media.”

 

Brian Carter

“I grew up in church and it’s always been important to me. I’ve always had a sense of calling to do life and faith-affirming media.”

 

Brian Bird

“Kurt [Cobain ]was a feminist. A lot of the bashing against Courtney [Love] I think has to deal with gender bias and the media, and I think that he liked that she was taking the attention off of him.”

Brett Morgen

“I am here on Earth to express myself, and the many media of art are my magic carpets that allow me the freedom to do so.”

Brandon Boyd

“Leigh [Bowery] obviously loved having me in the club because I would attract media, and he loved and lived for his column inches.”
