“Expelled as commander to be integrated as connector, the human is transformed by its own works from a brain legislating life to a ligament binding machine cycles.”

Brian Massumi, quoted by Pierre Joris in “Nomad Poetics”

If I’d stayed in a more expensive hotel, I wouldn’t have been paying for better people but for better organisation and technology.
