This is so not true. Libraries use cards, Teachers use cards, People
play cards even Suddam was on a card. The notion of a card being
obvious is hardly elitism. The person you are explaining this to would
have to have never been to school or the library or even watch TV (the
Tele) in order to not understand what a card is. Also, cards are easily
explained in relation to visual elements changing/flipping/shuffling
Remember this is the same audience that uses computers and needs to
understand windows/folders/desktops/files and
downloading/uploading/saving etc. The card metaphor is by far the
easiest to explain.
Now Director is a good example of elitism. You would have to have been
to a play or the theater AND know how one is put together with a Cast,
Score and Stage.
Traditional programming is even harder to explain.
