Sunday Book-Thought 119

Certainly anyone who has discovered the power of personal computing as an adult is going to have an old way of doing things and will discover a new and better way.
The more I deal with personal computing, the more the computer becomes an extension of my own mind. I am far more creative and productive than I could be without it. A computer is really an amplifier of a person. With it you can take whatever you do and do even more – which enhances the kinds of problems you can attack and solve. And if you’re programming, the act of debugging may change the way that you think about solving problems.
– Natalie Dehn, ‘Natalie Dehn Reflects on Artificial Intelligence’, Personal Computing, 7.6 (June 1983), 49-53, 213 (p. 213).
