imagination

“Software has become a universal language, the interface to our imagination and the world. What electricity and the combustion engine were to the early 20th century, software is to the early 21st century. I think of it as a layer that permeates contemporary societies. If we want to understand today‚Äôs techniques of communication, representation, simulation, analysis, decision making, memory, vision, writing, and interaction, we must understand software.” – The Algorithms of Our Lives
