Robert Parker, giving a mini-course on GIS, on how data gets coded:

“You have the lords, that’s us, professors. And then you have the knights, that’s you, the graduate students. And the serfs… those are the undergrads.”

Paul: “Can we beat them with the flats of our swords if they disobey?”

Parker: “No, but you can give them a million data points to code. That’s about the same.”
