Having been in at the ground floor of the PC “revolution” back in the 70’s, I have some interesting reflections about the bigger picture. Yes, well, I know I would say that, but honest, I think I do.
I mean, we weren’t even sure that everyone would have a PC back in those days, what would anyone do with them? A top end computer used to mean one fitted with 64K of memory! Luxury, luxury. (With apologies to Monty Python).
I have come to realise that there are some rather interesting insights to be had here, and you don’t usually get to hear them. The wrinkles to be encountered when people and computers mix have some far reaching consequences for society. Some of the issues being raised so far are only just the start.
More to come…
