Scott Adams es un dibujante y autor de la tira diaria Dilbert, una crítica ácida y mordaz contra la burocracia, el sistema de las grandes empresas privadas y otros aspectos de la sociedad.

Después de haber pasado años trabajando para el Crocker National Bank y nueve años para Pacific Bell, Adams decidió lanzarse al mundo de los cartoon syndicates, enviando sus tiras en el año 1988.

Mantuvo su trabajo en Pacific Bell hasta 1995. Hoy en día Dilbert se publica en 1200 periódicos por todo el mundo y Scott Adams ha publicado varios libros, entre ellos El Principio de Dilbert.

Ahora trabaja para "The Courier-Journal Newspaper" de Louisville, Kentucky.

Él también es el gerente de Scott Adams Foods, Inc., creadores del Dilberito & Protein Chef, y copropietario del "Stacey's Café" en Pleasanton, California. Las razones de su interés en el negocio de la alimentación vienen de su condición vegetariana.

Scott Adams es un gran fan de la serie de televisión de ciencia ficción Babylon 5. Él hizo incluso una aparición en el episodio de la temporada 4 "Moments of Transition" como personaje llamado Mr. Adams, quien contrata al jefe de seguridad Michael Garibaldi para que encuentre a su perro.

Es miembro de la Academia Internacional de las Ciencias y Artes Digitales.

Desde finales de 2004 sufre una recaída del síndrome de distonía focal, lo que ha afectado a su capacidad de dibujar. Puede engañar a su cerebro usando una tableta gráfica para dibujar.

Frases Scott Adams

„What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality?“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Every generation of humans believed it had all the answers it needed, except for a few mysteries they assumed would be solved at any moment. And they all believed their ancestors were simplistic and deluded. What are the odds that you are the first generation of humans who will understand reality? The Avatar, from God's Debris : A Thought Experiment (2001)

„If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: If an economist uses a complicated model to predict just about anything, you can ignore it. By analogy, a doctor can’t tell you the exact date of your death in 50 years. But if a doctor tells you to eat less and exercise more, that’s good advice even if you later get hit by a bus. Along those same lines, economists can give useful general advice on the economy, even if you know there will be surprises. Still, be skeptical. Press release, 10 September 2008 http://dilbert.com/blog

„When you understand persuasion ... the truth is not as useful as it should be ...“

—  Scott Adams
Context: When you understand persuasion... the truth is not as useful as it should be... (14:43 of 2:17:44)

„The truth is that I imagined every bit of good fortune that has come my way.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Years later, when "Dilbert" was in thousands of newspapers, people often asked me if I ever imagined being so lucky. I usually said no, because that's the answer people expected. The truth is that I imagined every bit of good fortune that has come my way. But in my imagination I also invented a belt that would allow me to fly and had special permission from Congress to urinate like a bird wherever I wanted. I wake up every morning disappointed that I have to wear pants and walk. Imagination has a way of breeding disappointment.

„These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: These days it seems like any idiot with a laptop computer can churn out a business book and make a few bucks. That's certainly what I'm hoping. It would be a real letdown if the trend changed before this masterpiece goes to print. The Dilbert Principle (1995)

„Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.“

—  Scott Adams
Context: Normal people don't understand this concept; they believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet. The Dilbert Principle (1996), p. 174;
