On an architecture for civilization, modern living...

Quote for the Day: Monday, September 3rd, 2007

"Bridges are, with skyscrapers and dams and similar monumental structures, the visible representation of our technical mastery over the physical universe. In the past half century, software has emerged as an invisible yet pervasive counterpart to such world-shaping human artifacts...

At first this sounds like an outlandish and self-serving claim. civilization got along just fine without Microsoft Windows, right? But software is more than the program you use to send email or compose a report; it has seeped into every cranny of our lives, without many of us noticing. It is in our kitchen gadgets and cars, toys and buildings. Our businesses and banks, our elections and our news media, our movies and our transportation networks, our health care and national defense, our scientific research and basic utility services — the stuff of our daily existence hangs from fragile threads of computer code."
