“Over this past year, every week, I compute and council. PCI (the Pristine Care Index) is a valuable invention and useful tool for personal management. I would predict that the more people use PCI, the happier we will be.”

“Now that I have left the work for pay, there are still many things I do in the garden and on my typewriter. I use email and still do a lot of correspondence. I find that people who can use wikis, websites, which dangle at the very ends of their fingertips “do” much more than I can do. To the extent my experience and wisdom can guide what they implement, our team is productive. The longer I am useful, in my opinion, the longer my human life value will compute.” –Michael Nixon
“School is my time for learning. When I’m out of school, that is not necessarily your time for teaching, but I would like you to help me make a movie.”
