‘Humanity’s Source Code’: Michael Dell’s Inspiring Quotes To Graduates

‘Technology itself is neutral. It’s neither good nor bad. Technology can amplify human genius, but it can also amplify human frailty. The choice is ours,’ Dell Technologies founder and CEO Michael Dell says during his commencement speech to the 2019 graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin.

‘Humanity’s Source Code’

Technology itself is neutral. It’s neither good nor bad. Technology can amplify human genius, but it can also amplify human frailty. The choice is ours. The choice is yours. And that is why I’m optimistic. Your generation has already made it clear that you’re committed to fairness and justice for all. You are as engaged as any group of graduates who ever walked the 40 acres. You’re going to demand that technology not only do new things, but do the right things. And you see your role in making that so. You have the drive to align your work with a greater purpose. You have the ambition not only to succeed but to serve. This, you might say, is humanity’s source code. It’s not a coincidence that these values are central at UT. Whatever you majored in, whatever you do after today, living up to that code will not only advance professionalism, it really will change the world. Of course, living up to that code is hard. It’s going to demand that you step up and take risks. Many people never realize what they’re capable of because they’re afraid to make mistakes. Many people don’t stand up for what’s right because they’re afraid to be wrong. But that’s not how changing the world works. Unless you’re willing to take risks, you won’t have a chance to use your talents when and where they matter most. Class of 2019, you have used those talents well in your years here at UT. The world needs your talents now. The world needs you now.
