(The verdict: It wouldn't be as weird as you might expect.) Because the sci-fi genre inspires endless fascination among technology professionals—it's OK to admit this addiction ... you're among friends—we're following up here with these 10 great "sci-fi quotes to live by," taken from movies, television shows and legendary authors. Each quote presents a compelling takeaway that can provide helpful perspectives about the various real-life challenges you and your co-workers face at work. Some quotes amount to pragmatic lessons about IT projects and overall performance. On a more philosophical note, others may help you gain a greater appreciation of your vocational purpose and the worldly value of information technology. If you can't get enough of these words of wisdom, try this site for a good sampling of interesting sci-fi quotes from movies.
