October 1, 2015 | 5 Comments I wanted to choose from a couple of nuggets, but I choose this one…. “It is intended to fill a crying need. Lots of everyday people have asked me where they can learn about computers, and I have had to say nowhere. Most of what is written about computers for the layman is either unreadable or silly. ” I find this so relevant to life today, and I actually like how direct Nelson is throughout the whole article. It reminds me of how old people act when trying to use a computer. My parents always ask where they can learn about computers and like Nelson said “any nitwit can understand computers, and many do,” but there are many that don’t. You can’t get a book on how to use computers, it’s silly or nobody can understand it. Some people take classes, and I think to myself like what are you even doing. Some people make using technology so much harder than it is. Nelson talks about how fantics where he is talking about to get getting ideas across by art and science. Also, the “human mind is very supple” and almost everything can be understood, but people set the controls. It’s important to keep an open mind about computers, since I feel like there are some people that don’t. There would be less people crying and asking where they can learn about them from.
