In my opinion, one of the most exciting potentials of the blockchain relate to creating new business models, whether in public or in private settings. In most of these cases, the new models don’t care for incumbents because they are mostly on a disruption quest.
William Mougayar
In Britain, eponymous lifestyle branding as we know it started in the late 1960s, with two fascinating families – the Conrans and the Ashleys – who in increasingly brilliant settings and catalogues sold rather different visions of what the new ideal upper-middle-y life looked like.
Peter York
I absorbed as many Impressionist paintings as I could, in Parisian museums and in many museums in the United States and in books, looking for clues to architecture, clothing, settings.
Susan Vreeland

Josh Malerman
I always think of buildings in their settings, but so do other architects.
Philip Johnson
‘Star Wars’ is very black and white, and honestly, I like it that way. But fantastical settings like that work best when the characters within them feel real. Real people have conflicts and make mistakes and get it wrong sometimes.
Claudia Gray
Shakespeare is rhythmic; he is musical in the sense that he likes poetry, and he’s musical because he constantly refers to settings where there’s singing and dancing.
Kenneth Branagh
By virtue of our private property society, we have disconnected individuals from the land. We have put them in high rises and asked them to live their lives in urban settings, disconnected from the land.
Adam Dell

It seems like the reason that I miss the science fiction from the late ’70s and ’80s is that at that period, they really were doing interesting, introspective human stories that just happened to take place in science fiction settings.
Duncan Jones
Cities tend to be representations of societies: diversity and inequality find their extremes in urban settings. Yet, when war is added onto pre-existing inequalities, high levels of poverty, or even disaster, urban fragility increases exponentially, making it harder to absorb the shocks of warfare.
Peter Maurer
When times are bad, people like to lose themselves in the sheer glamour of another period: beautiful wardrobes, magnificent meals served in elegant settings.
Shirley MacLaine
I loved being in my sister’s room. I really admired her and wore her clothes to play in, played with her dolls, played with her makeup. She had a mirror with settings to see what you would look like in different lighting. I thought that was amazing.
Chelsea Manning
Free-flow play is not compulsory, but there is a belief across lots of nurseries that it is. I have seen too many chaotic settings, where children are running around. There’s no sense of purpose.
Liz Truss
On some level, every story draws something from life experiences. Most of the time, it’s just a matter of me pulling bits and pieces of my own past to help give characters or settings a little more life.
Cullen Bunn

Randi Weingarten
Embrace’s infant warmers are a novel solution. The product has been designed specifically for resource-constrained settings.

Jesse Eisenberg
I’m an incompetent consumer. I have two settings: Buy and Don’t Buy.
Timothy Noah

Liu Cixin
I have two settings: full speed and stop.
Garrett McNamara
And if my 10-year-old is Googling or looking on YouTube then she’s got to do it in a room where we’re present. We’ve put all the child safety settings in place, but you still can’t predict what might turn up on a YouTube or Google search.
Tess Daly

N. K. Jemisin
I consistently encounter people in academic settings and scientists and journalists who feel that you can’t say that anyone is wrong in any deep sense about morality, or with regard to what they value in life. I think this doubt about the application of science and reason to questions of value is really quite dangerous.
Sam Harris
The routines of social intercourse in established settings allow us to deal with anticipated others without special attention or thought.
Erving Goffman
Banking, as far as I can tell, seems to be almost as precise a science as using a slot machine. You either blindly hope for the best, delude yourself into thinking you’ve worked out a system, or open it up when no one’s looking and rig the settings so it’ll pay out illegally.
Charlie Brooker
It doesn’t bother me to work with so much green screen. I prefer real settings obviously.
Joe Flanigan
I’m a walking advertisement for PBS and for the Discovery Channel. All of my DVR settings are pretty much set to record anything that’s on the Discovery Channel. I’m a big fan of ‘MythBusters’ and ‘Deadliest Catch,’ and I’m constantly watching ‘Moyers & Company’ and the ‘NewsHour’ and ‘Antiques Roadshow.’
Thomas Sadoski
I was so shy, it almost paralyzed me in social settings. And as shy people know, that can become a vicious cycle: The more uncomfortable you feel around people, the more you retreat, and the more shy you get.
Tamara Taylor
I’ve had social anxiety forever – I don’t thrive in social or party settings.

Foucault’s genius is to go down to the little dramas, dress them in facts hardly anyone else has noticed, and turn these stage settings into clues to a hitherto un-thought series of confrontations out of which, he contends, the orderly structure of society is composed.
Ian Hacking
As long as you have ideas, you can keep going. That’s why writing fiction is so much fun: because you’re moving people about, and making settings for them to move in, so there’s always something there to keep working on.
Guy Davenport
A name is so important in biblical settings that Scripture frequently mentions God Himself changing someone’s name to reflect a new reality. Abram, which means ‘exalted father,’ was changed to Abraham, meaning ‘father of a multitude.’
Tony Evans
One thing we know for sure is that the Web is a collaborative medium unlike any we’ve ever had before. We see people working together, playing together, interacting in social settings using these media. We hope that will emerge as the new tool for education.
Vint Cerf
Desire suppressed finds its way into other more surreal settings, into dreams.
Susan Minot
Rather than assuming Terms of Service are equivalent to informed consent, platforms should offer opt-in settings where users can choose to join experimental panels. If they don’t opt in, they aren’t forced to participate.
Kate Crawford
I like comfortable settings. Just somewhere where you can sit and chill and you got your friends and you got drinks and food.
In social settings, under the guise of joking, being collegial, flirting, or having a good time, I undoubtedly caused some women to question themselves, retreat, feel alone, and worry they can’t be their authentic selves.
Chris Sacca
One of the admirable features of British novelists is that they have no scruple about setting their stories in foreign settings with wholly foreign personnel.
James Buchan
If there is such a thing as ‘a Cukor style,’ I guess it arises out of two principal factors: my own personalized perception of the world and my ability to deal professionally with actors. As far as perception is concerned, I always try to imagine settings through the best possible eyes.
George Cukor
I film normal-life subjects in natural settings that some people would consider uncinematic. But what I want to show is nature itself, as the truth of life.

Mike Bartlett
Everyone experiences different parts of themselves at different times, these different parts of themselves that come out in different settings.
Amandla Stenberg
The fantasy that appeals most to people is the kind that’s rooted thoroughly in somebody looking around a corner and thinking, ‘What if I wandered into this writer’s people here?’ If you’ve done your job and made your people and your settings well enough, that adds an extra dimension that you can’t buy.
Tamora Pierce
Sometimes with films you have a freedom to be able to, Okay, we got that take so let’s try another one where suddenly I’ll say this, or you’ll get to improv. You can’t do that with stage. We have to make it new every time, and also within the structured settings.
Sebastian Stan
Friction and misunderstandings often occur when communicating across generations. It gets even more challenging when working across virtual settings.
Raymond Arroyo
Child abuse and neglect offend the basic values of our state. We have a responsibility to provide safe settings for at-risk children and facilitate permanent placement for children who cannot return home.
Matt Blunt
My favourite TV show is… ‘Downton Abbey.’ The characters are wonderful, and the style is created so beautifully on screen. Everything from the table settings to the linen seem perfect to me. While I’m watching it, I’m in a totally different world.
Mary Berry
Indeed, mysteries lead readers through an endless variety of subjects and settings; yet sometimes devotees of detection seek to be transported though another dimension as well: time.
Sarah Weinman
I prefer listening to talking, reading to socializing, and cozy chats to group settings.
Susan Cain
I’ve played in some pretty weird settings; busking puts you in all kinds of situations. I can tell you the most depressing gig I’ve played was in the North of England. At that time, I was playing with a band. We drove 7 or 8 hours to Carlisle to play a 600 – 700 capacity venue – 9 people showed up.
It’s a big, big advantage because understanding what changes we might make takes time and it takes time to work out settings and to understand everything about the new machine.
Valentino Rossi
It’s not going to be technology. It’s not going to be globalization. It’s going to be policy decisions and policy settings that will form the future of work.
Guy Ryder
My books are comedies; I want to take my readers on a jet-setting romp, make them laugh, make them swoon at the beautiful settings, and maybe even make their mouths water at all the food.
Kevin Kwan
If what you know and what you love are the same thing, that’s great. But if not, write what you love. I love history, secrets, conspiracies, action, adventure, international settings.
Steve Berry
I am not saying that the Renaissance in any way was a feminist movement – hardly. But the arts flourished, and in more social settings as opposed to being confined to the church.
Kathryn Lasky
It helps me to learn things in different languages, even if it’s just phonetically, and to make myself vulnerable to other audiences by trying to reflect back to them the genius of their own cultures, and to do that, oftentimes, in new jazz settings, new arrangements. It’s a way to show respect.
Kurt Elling
I screw up on the delay settings, so pretty much everything is manually done by me – I don’t have those presets like the Edge has.
Joey Santiago
I love inventing worlds and characters and settings and scenarios.
Jerry B. Jenkins
My stories deal with multicultural situations as well as multigenerational settings.
Patricia Polacco
I am a super social person. I’m an only child, so I thrive on social settings and being around my friends because I make them my siblings. When I’m not acting or singing or working on anything, I am making new relationships with people because, to me, my friendships are very important.
Hayley Orrantia
Every collaboration helps you grow. With Bowie, it’s different every time. I know how to create settings, unusual aural environments. That inspires him. He’s very quick.

Miriam Toews
Marriage doesn’t guarantee anything, it doesn’t come with perfect settings.
