Notable quotes by Avram
“To make decisions, you can’t spend weeks doing analysis. Deals won’t wait around for that kind of due diligence. So you have to have a sense — an intuition — if something is a good thing to do, and then hone that sense through experience.”Act now. Analyze later.Fast company Magazine December 1999
“The personal computer,' he says, 'will be to the 21st century what the automobile was to the 20th. It will reorganize the way we live, play, and spend our lives. How it will affect a particular business will vary with the business. But one thing appears obvious -- some of the hottest places for doing business will not be places at all, but will exist in cyberspace. There will be a whole new world of virtual products and services that live only in this other world, which we will create as we go along. ... I know it sounds wild. It's as hard for us to understand as the airplane was in the 19th century. Yet now we fly on planes every day. Cyberspace will be a world 21st-century man will feel at home in.’”Chips TriumphantForbes ASAP, February 26, 1996, p. 74

“Consumers learn interactivity at work. Over half of white-collar workers use a computer daily and we expect nearly all by the end of 1999. There are 22 million computers in U.S. homes with six million more expected next year. The average consumer spends $2,000 on their computer.
Interactivity in the home will have to stand on the back of the computer industry because the investments required would otherwise be prohibitive. The computer industry is already digital, networked and interactive.”Avram Miller A Vision for the FutureDaniels and Associates Conference 1993
