I sign my real name to my posts, and I asked you a real question hoping for a real answer... a simple, honest question about your vision for computing, to which you have no answer, only more masturbatory rhetoric, and the same name calling and juvenile inferences that only a few posts ago you so decried when it came your way.  So, unless you wish to become honest and stop hiding inside your linguistic psychedelics, I give up.  I'm not sure at this point that you'd recognize truth or honesty if it hit you upside the head with a two-by-four.

I can only think, after a certain point, that you don't really have a vision what you're after.  And don't say I didn't ask or that I'm in need of a teacher to tell me what to think or how to behave.  SImple questions deserve simple answers.

The whole notion of sitting down at a computer is hopelessly old-school.  The better question really is "what is it that systems want?  Any systems.  Humans are a system.  Is it the shovel we are after, or is it the ditch, is it water we want or the fruit it grows, is it the fruit or the energy we receive, is it the energy or is it the use we put that energy towards, what are these uses, what drives us towards them, where is it all headed?  Is any of this something that is best embodied in a spread sheet or a web page or a slide show?  aren't these notions simply the result of the limitations our imaginations place upon the future as a result of historical experience?  The real question becomes, what do you want out of life?
