Quiz: He said what? (an oddly informative news quiz)

By  

Whose Facebook posting outed her as a Wikipedia-dependent fraud? What made the Google-using hordes wring their hands and then turn to Yahoo and Microsoft? Who made us all feel like the underachievers we are? What event didn't draw rock star attendees (Bono excepted)? Who thinks managing the government's nuclear stockpile is more or less like garaging a car for 20 years? These questions and more in this week's news quiz.

How it works: Match the quote to the quoted and rollover the ??? for answers.

 

The quotes

1. "The problem we have with the nuclear stockpile is similar to one you might have at home with a car you've kept in the garage for 20 to 30 years."

2. "I ended up using Yahoo and Microsoft search for the first time in a long time and was fine."

3. "I feel like such a fraud. Do you think dartmouth parents would be upset about paying $40,000 a year for their children to go here if they knew that certain professors were looking up stuff on Wikipedia and asking for advice from their Facebook friends on the night before the lecture?"

4. "This was a no nonsense, get down to work, meeting. I didn't see a single rock star (Bono doesn't count because, well, he's Bono)."

5. "Our hypothesis is that the Army is a great opportunity for a lot of people."

6. "We are glad to be able to report that we have not yet had to handle a case of a registered sex offender meeting a minor through Facebook. We are working hard to make sure it never happens."

7. "It's akin to prosecuting mail service employees for hate speech letters sent in the post."

8. "They haven't set the world on fire with Zune. Why do they think they are going to do any better if they put a phone on it?"

9. "I wrote the program for my younger sisters, who like to draw."

 

The quoted

A. A Google spokeswoman commenting on what is believed to be the first instance of a privacy executive being held accountable for his firm's actions.
