“The Apple offices are clearly not like most places of employment. Video games abound, ping-pong tables are in use, speakers blare out music ranging from The Rolling Stones to Windham Hill jass. Conference rooms are named after Da Vinci and Picasso, and snack-room refrigerators are stocked with fresh carrot, apple and orange juice. (The Mac team alone spends $100,000 on fresh juice per year.)”
— David Sheff, describing Apple’s Cupertino headquarters in 1985 (!!) when he interviewed Steve Jobs for Playboy. Funny how tech-startup office-culture weirdness is often described as a new phenomenon, when ping-pong, video games, and excessive spending on healthy food has been commonplace for 30 years already.

“We were doing our pole tricks when Rihanna heard all the noise from the crew and came out. She saw me my tricks [sic] was like, “Oh my god! That shit you were doing on the pole!” She was like, “You are so fucked up!” in her Bajan accent.”

“I’m nervous about our civic culture. I’m not sure the Internet is largely the cause of it. It’s certainly the cause of careless writing. People who get used to blurbing things on the Internet are never going to be good writers. And some things I don’t understand about it. For example, I don’t know why anyone would like to be “friended” on the network. I mean, what kind of a narcissistic society is it that people want to put out there, This is my life, and this is what I did yesterday? I mean … good grief. Doesn’t that strike you as strange? I think it’s strange.”
