The computer is not a toy
14 July 2019
The computer is not a toy. It’s a value creation tool.
I’ve come to appreciate more the power of computers since I’ve worked with them more intimately as a programmer.
Computers are one of the most powerful fools humanity has created. We created the army of robots that can work for us. They give us immense power to connect with people, express ourselves, and have insights that previous generations could only dream of.
But only if they are used properly.
Used improperly, the computer can destroy lives. Used properly, the computer can change the world.
