Here's a new game for everyone, since this forum has been a little slow lately. I give a quote, then you all try to guess who said it. The person who gets the correct answer gives the next quote. Here's round one:

"I'm not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I'm not dumb... and I also know that I'm not blonde."

Good luck!

Ms. Kitty

EDIT: And don't even think about looking it up on the Internet! Oh, sure, you could find the answer that way, but where's the fun in that?

No, although that would've been my first guess, too.

I'll give it a try.

Just to try to keep it moving, if there are no correct answers within 24 hours, I'll post the answer and let somebody else give it a try.

Who said it? Extra cool points for what the person was talking about (if you know who said it, you'll probably know the subject)

Probably wrong, but I really have no idea, so I just took a wild guess.

Hrm....innarresting, as Wm. Burroughs might have said in Naked Lunch. (NB: that was not a hint)

I may post a hint later.

Big Hint: the person who said this is not a pop culture figure, but should be well known to the computer geek community.

Sorry, nope. Thanks for taking a shot, though. :)

C'mon, I know there are people out there who know a lot more computer lore than I do!

That guy who invented WYSIWYG? I don't know his name, but someone had to have invented it, right?

No, but you're getting warm. :D

I don't know if WYSIWYG other than as a catch phrase was the work of a single person. The group associated with the first WYSIWYG hardware and software was the Xerox Palo Alto Reseach Center (PARC) back in the 70s (I think).

OK, since we're coming up on 24 hours, I'm going to give two hints, one huge, and one incredibly huge. If nobody gets it after that, it was either really too obscure, and I apologize for that, or the CS geek people weren't following this item.

Huge hint 1: One of the creators of the awk programming language.

Incredibly huge hint 2: [BLANK] and Ritchie.

OK, more than 24 hours have come and gone, so here's the answer: Brian Kernighan, co-author with Dennis Ritchie of the original C programming language text, said it. He was talking about what he perceived as the deficiencies in WYSIWYG word processing environments, e.g., is that thing in bold a chapter or section heading or just something emphatic in the text? How can I find the chapter or section headings without reading the whole damn thing? et cetera.

On reflection, I think this was too obscure, and I apologize for that. Even if you knew who Kernighan is, it's an a piece of trivia related to a debate that's over. There's no reason a WYSIWYG display can't also embed structural information in the document. Hell, even crappy M$ Word does it now.

Otherwise, thanks to everybody who took a stab at it. I think the wrong answers were more interesting than the right one!

NEXT!
