Bilişim Hakkında Özlü Sözler

Son zamanlarda katıldığım etkinlik, seminer, eğitim vs. sayısının artması sebebiyle bazen öyle sözler duyuyorum ki, çok hoşuma gidiyor, çok etkileniyorum ve bende bunu mutlaka biryerde kullanmalıyım diyorum. Biraz önce burada böyle bir başlık açıp, duyduğum bu tarz sözleri bu başlık altına yazmak gibi bir fikirle geldim (“fikirle gelmek” ingilizcedeki “to come up with an idea” gibi bişey olur diye düşündüm ama Türkçe çevirince olmadı sanki 🙂 ). Aklıma geldikçe, biyerlerde duydukça, biyerlerde okudukça buraya yazacağım. Belki bir cümle, bir kelime veya paragraflık bir analoji olabilir. Bloga her girdiğimde şöyle bir baksam aklımda kalır ve bende konuşmalarımda böyle cümleler, anolojiler kullanarak daha etkili olabilir, fikrimi kabul ettirebilirim diye düşünüyorum.
