Philippe Kahn
Too many are focused on rewriting the past, invent the future!
Kahn quotes
If people would turn their TVs off for half the time, study science and practice an instrument, they'd be virtuosos and have Ph.Ds!
Kahn
Great fit and synergism for both companies and excellent outcome for employees, customers and shareholders.




Kahn Philippe quotes
Radically simplify the user interface, reinvent it, enough face lifts! You can put as much lipstick on a chicken as you want, it's never going to look good!
Kahn Philippe
Every day I practise my flute. I've been doing it for decades and every day I find something new that inspires me for all the rest that I do in my days.
Philippe Kahn quotes
Invention is the root of innovation. Innovation is the major force for change in the future.
Philippe Kahn
Camera-phones are like nuclear power plants: bad people will turn them into evil, good people will put them to good use.
Kahn Philippe quotes
There is no greater goal than to truly improve Mr and Ms Everyone's health, as an innovator that is where I want to spend my energy.
Kahn
I figured that I wasn't as smart or talented as the other kids around, so I just had to work twice as hard. Surprisingly, results showed quickly. I was hooked!
Kahn Philippe
Just like a picture is worth 1000 words, a camera phone is worth 1000 cell phones!
Philippe Kahn
I build things that I think are exciting from a technology standpoint and will help make life easier, simpler and better for people.




Philippe Kahn quotes
The power of Open Source is the power of the people. The people rule.
Philippe Kahn
We focus on building innovation and inventing technology futures and we figure that it will take care of the rest. So far, it's done wonders.
Kahn quotes
If I had a choice, I would have wanted to be Debussy or Couperin. I listen and it is magic. I just can't understand how they conceived enchantment. I couldn't so I decided to be a mathematician, the next best thing.
Kahn Philippe
Accelerometrics is a cool new discipline. Newton and Galileo would love it.
Kahn Philippe quotes
I am surprised at all the people in the high-tech industry focused on "making money"... If that's all they want to do, they should have a $100 printing press in their basements and they will truly "make money." Instead, if we focus all that energy on innovation, we'll change the world for the best.
Philippe Kahn
We fight for programmer's right!
Philippe Kahn quotes
If you win you want to win fairly, with class and respect your opponent. Some companies look at everything as something that should be theirs. It can be an invention, market share, or a contract. They don't have an ounce of conscientiousness or compassion. The notion of fairness means nothing to them. The only thing they understand is leverage. There is a better way.
Philippe Kahn
Camera-Phones are at the root of the Citizen-Journalism revolution.
Kahn Philippe
We are less than a decade away from the medical lab the size of a sugar cube.
