Damn it, I hate when Kirby is not only right, but more thorough.
There is another parallel story. The story of let's call it - office
productivity. Seeing the fax machine come online. People interfacing
with complex machines in simple ways. Producitivity. Getting stuff
out-the-door. So we all get to eat. Not an unimportant story. Here
the world of human-computer interface takes on its importance. And I
don't think one can talk about the world of human-computer interface
without talking about Kay.
But this is edu-sig.
And I don't think it is the story that is of central relevance here.
