Mark Bernstein: NeoVictorian Computing

Mark Bernstein: NeoVictorian Computing: “Part of Realism is addressing the world as it is. Data are complicated; when we reduce everything to a hierarchy, we’re distorting the world. Everything is intertwingled; when we pretend that clear signage will keep people from being lost or being confused, we’re distorting the world. The audience is smarter than we are; when we pretend that real people can’t understand inheritance, we’re deceiving ourselves. Software that distorts the world can be a lie.”
